Up in the sky was an island where the future king of the skies still lived. By now he was but a youth in comparison to other elves. Despite his years, he physically looked like a teenager, and was still living under his father, who had high standards set for him. It seemed as if everything would be set in stone for him, his future residing on this island and nowhere else.
Cresento had looked out at the open sky countless times, dreaming of a day when he could leave the island that he felt trapped on. He longed to be free, to ride amongst the clouds that passed. And, as the days passed, he slowly began to believe that flying away from the future that his father had set for him would be an impossible feat.
My first time on an airship was not until I was older, when I decided to leave home.
We departed early in the morning. It was windy, and of course it was chilly — but it was a pleasant sort of cold, or perhaps I was just too excited, and a bit nervous, to be bothered by something like that.
The view, and the experience itself, was beyond words. To see the endless sea of dark blue stretched ahead of us, to know that soon we would be sailing across the waves of oranges, purples, and pinks as the sun rose above the horizon, and to feel like I could just — reach my hand out and grasp hold of a star, or skim my fingertips along the softness of the clouds…
No number of curious inquiries or regaled tales from sailors could have prepared me for it, nor would they have ever painted such a wondrous and fantastical picture for my imagination.
I was flying. Something I had only dreamed of until that moment, and it felt like my entire life had, somehow, been leading up to that moment.
I would have stayed out on the deck for the entirety of the journey if I could have, and though we sailed for almost two days, it didn’t feel nearly long enough.

Aries zodiac facts.
