The tiny inside space of his apartment was really no fit place for a star to preen his wings, and now when the snow was lessening and the sun once again shining through the clouds there was no reason to remain stuck inside as he tended to his personal grooming.
A lone bench was his perch, upon which he was crouched with his wings lifted around his head. Every now and then he paused in his work and lifted his head to scan the surrounding area for threats, but he was so focused on the task of preening that he did not notice the child approaching and quite by accident tossed two arm-length feathers, old and easily discarded, towards him.
He was a small thing, very small, and with the proud creature cocking his head about as he was it was no doubt easy to miss him so close to the ground. He aided the situation by standing very still, not because he had any sense but because he was frozen with pleasure. Then the only thing which seemed capable of stirring him from the spell- to the awe of all- happened. Actually happened.
He knelt taking up the feathers and clutching them to his chest. He gawked at them, taking in the lines, the delicate structures…They were beautiful and cuddling them he was intent on never letting them go. “Pretty…”
That he heard, a fully formed word more distinctive than a simple sound of surprise. He turned his head, then lifted a wing and peered underneath. A newborn human, it could not be more than five or six years, wandering on its own. And not just any human, the intricate colours in the mess of hair could belong only to one being.
"Yugi." He noted with interest, and as any star would in such a situation he changed his focus from his current task to the care of the lone newborn. Plucking another feather from his wings, which were both now lifted and held back so as not to obscure the view, he tempted the boy forwards with this third gift. "Greetings, thief of feathers. This is no place for little boys to glide. You have ventured far from your mama’s arms to stand before me here. Would you show me the kindness of introducing yourself?"
