from The Phoenix Dance
by Dia Calhoun
1 A cold wind sliced through Pearl Street as Phoenix Dance stood by the
shoemaker’s window staring at a sign wedged between a pair of black-
and-white satin shoes. The sign said, in crudely written letters:
Apprentice wanted, inquire within.
2 As Phoenix’s cloak and her patched brown skirt blew around her, a twinge
of excitement shot from her feet to the crown of her head. She could not

House of Seaborne.
3 Imagine making shoes for the queen! Phoenix smiled and clapped her
hands. Why shouldn’t she be Percy Snailkips’s new apprentice?

of the shop, probably to chase her away as usual. Before they could,
Phoenix ran around the corner, down a side street, around another
corner, and into the alley until she reached the rubbish can behind the
shoemaker’s shop. She took a deep breath and then lifted the lid off the
can. The smell of rotting turnips assaulted her nose.

crumpled peacock feathers, and a patch of glue-stained red velvet the
size of her palm. Phoenix stuffed them into her cloak pocket. Her hands
were cold, like the rest of her. On the island of Faranor, the capital of the
archipelago kingdom of Windward, the late winter month of Zephyrus was
always cold and w...
