It was early after sunrise, birds flying around the island of New Berk and proudly singing. People were on their feet running through the streets and trading with each other, having fun and talking. It seemed pretty usual, as the teenagers arrived at the stairs to the Great Hall, heading for some breakfast. But only Thor knows what was happening in the Haddock's hut.
I was still half way sleeping, when I heard a knock at the door. Great. I didn't want to get up yet because I felt bad and dizziness overtook my head as I stirred my head up to look at the door:"Come in" I growled with some raspy undertone in my once so soft and effective voice. "Well goodmorning, bedhead.", my brother greeted me:"I thought I should come to check on you since you weren't down for breakfast. Mom was worried that something's wrong and- OMG ZEPHYR YOU'RE SO RED!", he yelled after he came near and saw me. Me, being the stubborn person I am (thank you dad) tried to stand up and show him, that I'm ok. But of course, that was not gonna happen! I put one foot down on the wooden floor, as dizziness again tried to strike some of my plans:"Ugh", is all I could growl as I fell back into my blanket again. Before I could say anything, my brother did what I expected him to do, but since I was sick I didn't care, I just wanted this feeling to suddenly pass on. That would be great, right? "Mom! I could need some help upstairs! Please check on her and have a look at this.", he shouted. "NUFFINK YOU'RE MAKING ME DEAF! Please stop, I already have a bad headache...", I whined. "Sorry sissy", he apologized. "I'm here, what's wro- oh by Odin...Nuffink look for some wet towels around, ok?", my mom told my brother. "Honey you don't look good", she told me after Nuff went away. "Mum, I'm fine, really! I don't need to rest. I can just go training or do some exploring or help dad with chiefing you know.", I tried to convince her "No no no, Zephyr you're here for bed rest!", she put a hand on my burning forehead "you have a high fever and you're not only red, you're glowing! Besides your voice is raspy. Any other symptoms?"👇
