Madame Chamberlaine: The Feather of the Golden Eagle

Tzipi Wolner

“NOOOOOOO!” Shuly jumped away from the front lawn while I just stood staring at the falling glass and rolling beads. “Oh, boy.” “This is not funny, Shuly. What in the world will I do now?”

“I don’t know, but you know I’m petrified of Chief Red Horse. I’m not going with you if you choose to apologize,” she whispered. She raced up the stairs to our home. I stood outside and looked at the mess I had made of the chief’s door decoration. He was a Native American and a chief too. He was also a fierce and scary man. I certainly wasn’t going to apologize by myself. He would probably swallow me whole and spit out my bones. Nah, I’d be safer at home. Like under my covers. I ran in after Shuly and locked the door behind me. I took a deep breath and felt my heart beating crazy fast. I was still panting when I came into the kitchen. Madame was sitting at the table chatting with my mother. A fresh batch of vanilla buns was cooling on the counter. I sniffed my way over to the tray.
