Schooldays eh?

When I left school they completely redecorated. The watchtowers came down and all the barbed wire was sold for scrap. Even the moat was filled in. I like to think that my example made life just a little easier for those who followed.    

Chapter One.

The crow tilted one wing and rode the thermals diagonally across the valley. He could see it all from up here, scattered houses and a farm nestled in a fold of the earth below him. Whoever had designed the crow had been truly inspired, the way the head stuck out in front gave a panoramic view without the wings obscuring threats or danger. However the colour wasn't perfect, it made formation flying at night an absolute bugger!
