As they rounded the bend Zenith put his hand above his head, "Apex!" He shouted and waited for his companion to descend to them. After a few moments the great bird shrieked as he flew over the cliff and landed on the beach with a loud woosh of air.

"Uhh" I managed to say while falling down in surprise! I had seen pictures of this animal in textbooks and manuals that I had studied. But it couldn't be! How? "uhh" was all I managed to say again. Now in complete shock, but with a reverent awe, I turned to Zenith and ask, "How is this possible?"

"Us?" "I can touch, Him?"I asked with a deep respect and foreboding, as this animal must have come to trust Zenith in such a way that I do not believe that I could ever have anyone or anything trust me.

Wow! My dreams are going to come true! I wanted so bad to be a pilot before I came to this place, but fate took me away. I studied dinosaurs and now I was going to ride one!!! All I could say is "yes, I must be in heaven though..."

A little apprehensive at first; but overwhelmed by the dream, I went over to Apex. Looking one last time into the great dinosaurs eyes for the reassurance that I needed; I found it. He may not be tamed, but he was friendly. To exhausted to ask any more questions I did as I was bid. I didn't necessarily "hop on" per se, but more like clambered on.

As a person who loves heights and speed; that lift off was probably the greatest thrill Califf had had in a long tome. The absolute joy of being on a flying dinosaur completely overwhelmed the misery of the lost trip to England, the pain of the plane crash and the shock of being lost at sea! Somehow it was all worth it now. There was nothing to leave behind in the old world, but a new world lay ahead to be discovered and the joy of a fresh start also washed over this castaway. Knowing how exhausted and overwhelming all this was I had to ask Zenith, "How long will it take to get us to Waterfall City?"
