But then, as quickly as it had come, it was gone.
Jack leaned forward as much as he dared, his lips pursed as he scanned the night sky for any sign of the odd object. In search of a less-obstructed view, he leapt down softly from his perch on the tree branch and onto the pond below, the still water freezing instantly beneath his feet, a thin layer of swirling ice sprouting from wherever he stepped.
His search proving fruitless, he shrugged and turned around, a quick bout of Winter wind lifting him from his place on the water and setting him down on the nearby land.
It was his eyes playing tricks, after all.
A subtle change in the air brought a smile to his face. He knew what that change was. He could just feel the clouds forming in the atmosphere, see all of the new patterns for snowflakes in his mind’s eye.

His entire body felt as if someone had taken each individual muscle, pulled it past its maximum capacity and let it snap carelessly back into place. Did he even have the ability to move anymore?
Only one way to find out.
He willed himself to roll onto his side, slinging his left hand over to his right side to help prop himself up. His arms were lead, his torso an immoveable block of concrete. His legs were completely limp.
His vision blurred and wavered.
Even so, slowly but surely, the tightness left him, feeling returning to his nerves as his hands pushed against the cold steel floor. He sat up successfully, his sight gifted back to him.
Where was he?
He rubbed his temple.
A distant memory played back in his head. O
