So you know I can talk with animals but like a few of the other Affected, I have another ability: I can fly. Oh not like Superman and I got caught in a LOT of trees at first, usually upside down. But I do more of a graceful run and then just lift up and drift through the air at a racing 10 or so miles per hour. It feels a bit like swimming. I don’t go too high, maybe 40 feet at the maximum and tend to not be able to turn easily but usually keep going in the same direction I was running in, hence the getting caught in trees and such.
But I’ve been practicing and can now run into a tree and not get hurt. I’ve found that trees are handy way to get back to the ground.
