To tell you the truth, it comes in a flash. And then leaves you wanting something more.

Hi! I missed you!

Oh, and just today I spewed another drabble. These things get addicting.

Icarus

Daedalus was a genius. His ideas were ground-breaking, his inventions revolutionary. And he was currently a prisoner.
Franz Ferdinand loved peace. His ideas were popular with the general public, and he was best known for his greatest mistake, the selfish act of love. And he was currently a prisoner of that decision.
Minos was the warden. A king of Crete, he was determined to keep his rule. And having the famous inventor working for him helped a lot.
The emperor hated that his nephew was spitting on the family name by marrying a commoner. The best he could do to stop the dreaded event was to enforce a left-handed marriage, and pretending that the child didn’t exist.
Daedalus had a son, Icarus. The boy shared his prison, and assisted his father in making new items for the king. The only reason Minos allowed him to stay alive was that the child offered a wonderfully convenient way of controlling the rebellious man.
Franz loved his son of course. Little Aleksander was a fairly happy child, and didn’t once fail to greet his father when the man came home from ‘business’ trips. But he also represented what the consequences of his decision were.
Daedalus hated that his son had to grow up trapped in a stone workroom. Countless sketches later, a rough idea formed…
Little Aleksander grew up. He really did have a natural talent with walkers, his father mused. There could have been a future there, but with his current political standings, there was almost no point in pursuing it. But Franz couldn’t bring himself to take away the only thing that made his son want to fly.
“Remember son,” the old man told the boy as he pulled the leather straps tight. “Don’t fly too high, lest the sun melt the wax.”
“I know father.”
“Don’t fly too low, or the spray from the waves will get the feathers wet and heavy.”
“I know father.”
Daedalus sighed. “Alright. Here we go.”

Franz Ferdinand died before he could see his son get off the ground, leaving the boy to find his own way in a world that was set against him. There was no time to be the boy that he was.
Flying was a miracle. Icarus laughed in sheer joy. This was beautiful, having the sky at his wings, and the sun shedding warmth on his back. What was left to do but fly? To dip and curve? To be a bird?
“Isn’t that why you became and airman? To see the world?”
“Me, I just wanted to fly.”
“I’m beginning to see the appeal,” Alek smiled. Partially standing up, he leaned into the wind, letting it hold him upright like a mother with a newly walking toddler. He spread his arms out and splayed his fingers, catching the wind like a mighty bird of the air. The boy laughed in sheer joy, finally being the child he was inside.
“Sit down you dafty!”
Alek just laughed again, every worry fleeing his mind. What was left to do but fly? To dip and curve? To be a bird?
Franz was lucky; he didn’t have to see his son fall.
Daedalus hated his being. He hated his mind. Because of him, his son was dead. From that hate, his head quickly became unraveled. For now he knew, men weren’t meant to fly.
But of course, that doesn’t mean that they would ever stop trying.

I don't think this is as good as my last one for some reason.
