A lovely glimpse into the lives of Ori and Raynard one year later. Every day with Raynard is a day of happiness for Ori. Ori is so sweet and powerful, and yet he still lacks self-confidence. Fortunately, Raynard knows how to remind Ori of just how much he’s loved.
It’s not easy learning how to be a swan, but Ori Jones has worked hard to embrace a role that still doesn’t come entirely naturally to him. Now, almost a year after his first full shift, he finally feels as if he is making a difference at the Anderson nest.
Ori’s happier than he’d ever been, until a few words from his master, Raynard, suddenly bring all of Ori’s old fears rushing back to the surface.
The nest’s elders want to have a party for Ori’s birthday, but Ori can’t see any reason to celebrate in it being a year since he reached his avian maturity. After all, what’s the use in learning to be a good swan when Raynard never wanted a swan in the first place?
