Thrown Down to Rise Up~ Part One
Sparrow's childhood, her mother's death.
Ashton had wings. It wasn't her fault. She discovered them by accident when she was climbing a tree when she fell. So she told her mother. Ashton was only five.
Mum! What's wrong with me!? Why am I like this!?
You see Ashton's mother had wings, too. She met extraterrestrials as a girl, and they gave her wings because that was something she wanted as a young one, and therefore gave her children wings, too.
It's okay honey. It's okay.
Ashton's mother asked her to hide her wings. If someone found out, they'd take Ashton away. So she used them, but only on her farm when no one was around, and at nighttime with her mother.
They loved to stargaze and eat her mother's famous pie. Ashton was a wonderful artist, and so she drew a lot. For four years they lived in peace.
One day, however, the government found out about Ashton's mother. They took her away, leaving Ashton alone with a note from her mother. Ashton's mother had died.
