Fantasy micro-fiction

When Orlanda set the birds free they refused to leave her side.

“Why do you stay with me?” she asked.

They circled her, whirling around her head, and cried “we are your spirit. We only cawed and fought to flee because you kept us captive and hidden. You’ve liberated us. Now there is no need to go.”
