It felt like being kicked in the face by a half-dead pigeon. The laat time someone called him a coward was before a blind race into a spike-filled cave. Sure, he had broken his right wing and couldn't stand for a month, and he had to live off worms like a damn pigeon ... Whatever this strange fox wanted with all that talk of 'warriors' and the like, noone with even basic sense would reject Perry, the fastest animal in the world. He was sure of his title.
Out of the blue, the fox leaped from the windowsill.
But she's wingless?!
Perry peered down towards the white fox, seeing her spiral down and... levitate.
Huh. Light magic. Knew there was something wrong with that fox.
Perry cocked his head and ruffled his wings. Light magic... well I'll show you!
Perry soared into the sky, steadily climbing, above the buildings, into the bottom of the clouds.Doing a single loop, he aimed directly at the spot in front of the fox, zeroing onto her line of sight. He tucked his wings in, angled his beak and began to fall.
This is how you use light magic.
High acceleration. White streaks of light pushed against his face and flowed back around his tail, turning him into a living comet. The ground rushed towards him. He kept his dive steady.
At the last possible second, he broke the spell and spread his wings, turning his drop into a blistering glide, circling around the street, through a car window and right in front of the fox. Momentum pushed him over a ways to the left, but he landed upright and largely intact and out of breath.
"Silly fox *huff*. That *puff* is how *huff* you're meant to use light magic."
