He sat on the warm wooden floor, his back resting upon a huge blue pillow, his flexible legs coming gently behind his shoulders. This was a very relaxing pose for such a pastime. He turned on the little light, took the book, opened it and started to read.
"Once upon a time, in a faraway kingdom, a very normal child was living in a beautiful town among amazing people. Each inhabitant of the city had an incredible skill. Some were very lucky, some others had a very impressive strength, others were very rich thanks to their incredible cleverness, there were even people able to read minds. But this young boy had no real skill, like the rest of his family, so he always felt a bit excluded from this amazing community.
One day, while walking along a river, he saw a glimpse in the water, an unusual glow that attracted all his attention. He put a paw on the bank and grabbed the thing that was shining. He dried it and understood he found a lamp. But not a normal lamp. This was a magic one. He came back home very quickly and locked himself in his bedroom.
The night approached. He had been admiring this lamp for hours since he found it in that river. He hid it behind books in his bookcase to make sure nobody would find it. He unlocked his door and went down the stair to take the diner with his parents. Right after that, he said goodnight to his mother and father, ran up in his room, took the magic lamp with him and put himself under the duvet.
He waited patiently like this for about two hours. But his curiosity was too strong and he could not resist any longer. He wiped the lamp and a geni went out of it. He told the boy he could make a wish, and only one, so he asked for a skill. The geni was about to give him what he was asking for but suddenly stopped.
"Why did you make this wish ?" asked the geni.
"I don't want to feel excluded anymore by the rest of the society. Everybody is unique and has an incredible talent. I want one too." replied the young boy.
"So you want to become one of them ? A boy with a particular skill, a skill that would make you a "unique" person like everyone in this city ?"
"But if I do that, you won't be different from the other people of this town. You'll just become like them and won't be the person you should be. If I do that, your destiny will change."
"What is my destiny ? To stay a looser all my life, a normal child that nobody looks ?"
"If that's your wish..."
The geni made a gesture of the hand and disappeared in the lamp. The young boy wiped it again and again but without any result. So he put it on the bedside table and fell asleep.
A month passed and he did not see any changes at all. He was still the person he was the day he found that lamp in the river. He thought the geni lied and played him a trick. He was mad about this idea but could not do anything to change this.
Two months passed and he felt something was different with his body. He could easily do moves he was not able to do before. He could easily put his legs behind his head while he never saw anybody able to do that. So he trained and became very flexible in only three weeks. And since his parents were not very rich and his family had always been very normal compared to the rest of this city, he decided to help by showing his new and unique skill in the street. First, the passersby were surprised by what the young boy could do with his body. Taking weird and unnatural positions was a bit disturbing for them. But in a second time, he became recognized as the child having a very unique talent, almost a gift given by God himself.
Showing off his flexibility in the street was not enough. He came in a circus where he would be welcomed and where he could really develop his potential. The landlord of this circus was a very kind man. He did not refuse to hire this limber child. And he was right to do that.
Four years later, the circus was the most well known in the whole country and the family of the young boy, now older and smarter, was wealthier thanks to him. He was living happily, had a good job which he loved a lot and was part of the community. But thanks to the choice of this geni, who did not want to change his fate, he had the skill he wished for, but this did not make him like everybody. He had a skill he was the only one to have, a skill that was admired and respected by everyone, and this could not make him happier than he already was.
His family was now pretty wealthy, his parents were living happily, like him, and they were not excluded anymore. Everybody was happy and life was going on.

This was his favourite story. He closed the book with a faint smile, slowly closed his eyes and fell in Morpheus' arms.
He cares for one of my 'wyverns,' who has internal machine components similar to engines. The wyvern's original organs-which were beyond any repair, were replaced by auto parts. I have a some what fleshed out story on how he meets the otherworldy wyvern that I'm happy with.
Once he and the wyvern get to know one another a little more, he names it Torque.
Names come late for me, but I like Nathan. I:
I threw a Chevy decal on his cap because I like Chevy, I drive one, and that's that.
