Amelie Storksdottir in Front of the Gates

This was the most exciting day in Amelie Storksdottir’s life. And no wonder – this was the day when she stopped being a nestling, wasting her life on bug-chasing, cloud-gazing and flying. She was going to Colcannon, the best sc

hool for storks wishing to become baby-carriers.

Her older brother, Gustav Storksson, had graduated from the school last month and now came home in the evenings carrying an air of great self-importance. She called him Dorksson but secretly envied him. He had so many great stories to tell – about the hardships of his profession, the babies he had delivered, the monsters he had defeated.

Monsters.

All of a sudden, Amelie felt uncertain if this was the right career for her. She looked at her thin legs, her long and vulnerable neck, her funnily sticking out feather on the right shoulder. How could she ever withstand a monster’s attack, let along beat him?

– Are you coming or what?

Amelie woke up from her day-dreaming, tried to flatten the sticking feather and entered the school at a run seconds before the school’s grand door was shut.

Her new life awaited her.
