We all watched as NightStar walked out of the cave. Syx looked to the others and shrugged his shoulders.
"I'm heading out to see if Night's going to be ok." Syx says.
Seeing Night gathering up sticks to build a campfire, Syx asks her if there was anything wrong.
"No Syx, I'm just tired of playing games with the Wizard. I mean he could have wiped us all out with one spell, so it's obvious he is just playing
games with us!"
"You know, you're right! He could have very easily done just that!" Syx replied.
"So what now Night?"
"Well I'm going to finish building the fire, and go hunt some game. Maybe boar would be good right about now."
"Mmmm, Bacon does sound delightful! Let me finish this fire. You go on and see about the Boar. Will You be ok, alone?"
"Yes Syx,I'll be fine. I have Wolf to help me."
"Ok, but do be careful."
Syx watches as Night enters the woods to begin her hunt. He gathers more firewood and places it near the building mound of wood.
He fashions a rack with spindle, to use for roasting the boar, upon NightStar's return.
While on another trip into the edge of the woods for timber, Syx sees some of the Fixers scampering about. There are about a dozen of them running
"Hey you guys! How have you been? I haven't seen or heard from any of you for a while now."
"We are fine SyxPak, as we always are, Thank You." One of them says. "We have arrived to see what all the commotion is in this cave."
"Well we have been fighting the Wizard in there for a while now. It is not easy trying to defeat him either."
"Nor will it be easy to defeat him. As a matter of fact, You will Never beat him! Others have tried for many moon passing's and none have been
victorious. As you can see that simply because the Wizard still exists! I am called 99." the little guy states.
"Well 99, It's a pleasure to meet you. Will you please do me a small favor? No pun intended." Syx asks.
"What is Pun?" 99 asks Syx.
Chuckling Syx responded with, "Nevermind that. Will you please go in the cave and ask CCBears to come out here? She is the one who..."
"Yes we all know who she is. We know of all your names. Sure, we'll be right back!" 99 says gleefully.
Off they go single file into the mouth of the cavern. It looked like an oversized centipede watching them skipping along.
The little people near the ring of warriors and head for CCBears. She sees them coming and is momentarily shocked! She had never seen these little
people before so naturally she was stunned.
When one of them spoke, CC jerked her head back in surprise!
"SyxPak requests your attendance outside CCBears. May we ride upon your back for the return trip outdoors? We have never ridden on such a large beast
"I am not a beast, but yes, I suppose you may ride on my back."
While giggling joyfully the little people scramble onto nearby rocks and small boulders, so they could reach the height required to get onto the back
of the large PolarBear.
"Ok CCBears, we are ready!" 99 said.
The other warriors watch in amazement as CC walks out of the cave with the little riders on her back. All of them clutching handfuls of the thick
"What's up Syx?" Cc asks.
"I just want some company while Night is out hunting Game. Thought maybe you'd want to be out here where it is a little safer." Syx replied.
"I don't think any of us were in any real danger in there Syx. That Wizard seemed to just be playing with us. Even though it was beating him down
some, he seemed to be liking it!"
"Yah I noticed that too. Not sure what that is all about, but I tired of it and came out here for some fresh air."
"Syx, what is the deal with all these little people? They know my name and everything!" CC questions.
"Well, I stumbled on them a little while back and they tell me they are called the Fixers. They fix problems before they become problems, they claim.
They have numbers for names and can live a very long time."
"Well they don't seem to be able to really fix problems before they are problems, if we are in this mess with the Wizard!" CC insists.
"Hmmm, you have a good point there CC. I see what ya mean."
"Oh yes we have fixed the problem with the Wizard! You just don't know the full extent of how bad this could have been for you all, unless we
interfered!" 99 said exitedly! "This path we have led you down is much better than the other one."
The fixers tell CC and Syx of the outcome had another path been taken, concerning the Wizard.
They agree with the little people that they were right.
Now relaxing against a tree while they wait for Night to return, they notice it has become quiet in the cave.
