He said, "Do as the river" was the waterfowl way of saying "Be swift". His sister finaly arived, "Hello Monia", he said. She sat next to him on the bed, "How are your feathers"? She asked looking at them, "There fine", he said "A bit uncomfortable though". He said, looking down a his shiny feathers, he had his back and wing feathers recently coated in iron and sharpend, they were his weponds.
