Iris felt her eyes go wide and her heart began to flutter. For a moment she just held on to her inhaler wondering if she was having a heart attack or if her asthma was somehow magically doing this odd thing to her heart. She looked around at the trees and Joseph called out to the dog that went running back to his side.
“Ungrateful brutish dog! You know not to tackle her,” he said to the retriever as it happily wagged its tail and responded with a soft bark, making Joseph laugh.
“Go on and find a place. Show her the island while you are at it.” Joseph told Falcon who looked at Iris and smiled. “Get her back to the house safely when you are done. I will stop by there and see how the garden is tending.”
“Joseph…” Iris said hesitantly, biting her lip. “When you are there would you mind telling Diana that I am all right, but not mention where I am or who I am with? I don’t want to talk to her right now.”
“Sure thing. You keep that young man in check now, y’hear?” he said, giving her a wide smile. Falcon seemed to be moving ahead but he hadn’t moved fast enough for Iris not to see him blush.
“Thank you,” Iris said and then turned to follow Falcon. She wanted to be afraid of him, of everything. But the voice inside of her was pushing her forward and comforting her all at once, making her feel at ease and safe.
He helps. Follow him and remember yourself. Calm down so that we can go back to the house with an open mind and heart. You are safe here.

There is a tribe that would love to see Iris dead…
Iris has asthma, has forgotten her past and lives a fairly secluded life with her father and Diana. But she dreams every night of flying to an island covered with white feathers. She longs for the island during the day and feels like she belongs there.
When her father is threatened by someone from his past he packs up Iris and Diana and sends them to the island she’s been dreaming about, promising Iris that he will soon meet her there.
Once on the island Iris realizes that her father and Diana have been keeping secrets from her. But what are they and why wont the people she loves the most tell her?
On the island she meets Falcon, a boy who remembers everything about her past. But was he sent to kill her or to help her?
