Nelly Furtado sleeps in a field. Wearing a red shirt and jeans, she blends into the bark of the tree. The sun shines on her. As she turns, a bird has stayed in her hand. She watches the bird as it flies joins it flock. She smiles as she sees the birds fly towards the sun.
She levitates on the brush, swinging her feet as she sings. She rises mid-level to the trees and turns in a slow circle. Back arched, she flies in the air.
Wearing the red shirt, she stands by the tree.
She lowers herself to watch a bug walk on a fallen limb. Using her eyes, she changes the color of the bug to lavender. She balances herself on a limb and falls backwards. Below, a crowd of thousands catches her.
Nelly Furtado watched the sunset in the forest. As she laid in the field, she knew no one was really missing her. She had a group of friends she talked to a few times a week. However, if she didn’t answer a message for a night, they wouldn’t notice.
Without realizing it, she fell asleep. She woke up in the morning, unsure of where she was. The howls of the animals had calmed her. Wild animals lived on their own terms. They were preyed upon by hunters and by other animals living in the forest. They were trying to survive like her. She remained quiet as a bird stood in her palm. It was such a delicate creature. She didn’t understand how any human could harm it.
As she walked in the forest, she was careful of the bugs. Although they were a nuisance, they had purpose and spirits of their own. Living in nature had given her special powers. She changed the color of the bug, thinking it be spotted and become a respected insect.
She walked the three miles home. Once she opened the door of her home, her friends hugged her and said they were worried about her. They were wondering she didn’t call them back last night. She says she went to the forest and accidentally fell asleep. They told her next time to keep in contact. They were really scared. One friend she mentions she was trying convince Furtado’s mom to call the police. She thanks them for their concern and promises to let them know next time. Even though it seems as though she’s alone, there are people she can trust in her life.
