Syx was confused at first as to the turn of events in The Lair of Eminence the Mighty Purple Dragon. NightStar decided to take a leave of the goings
on in that Lair and headed down the Hall. Syx could not even speak to give a proper send off for His friend.
CC looked at Syx and said, "Syx, would You like to get out of this damp dark place for a bit of fresh air? I don't mind the cold, but the air is
stifling down here and I am feeling a bit claustrophobic right now."
"Sure CC Hunny, I wouldn't mind some fresh air! That does sound like a good idea. Anyone else want to go out side for a while?"
The others decided to stay underground and look around some more. Saying farewell for now, Syx and CC leave to walk the long hall back to the stairs
that lead up through the open hatch.
Once above ground they looked around for NightStar. They did not see Her or Wolf anywhere.
"Maybe we will see them from the air Syx." CC said.
"You are probably right CC. Let's take a flight. It is such a beautiful night! Full Moon, clear skies, calm winds. Perfect for flying!!" Syx
Syx shape shifted into His Dragon form and CC climbed on His back and settled in.
"You ready CC?"
"Yep! Let's go!!"
Syx began a waddled stride as He picked up enough speed to get off the ground. He flapped his long wings downward a few times and left the ground. CC
was giggling as they took to the night sky.
"What are You chuckling about back there CC?"
"The way You walk is funny dear. But You make fun of my gait as well, so we are even I guess!" She chuckled.
"Very Funny Woman! You wait, I'll have one on You soon enough!" Syx laughed back at CC.
They rose above the forest on the island and could see for miles in the clear night air. So refreshing it felt to the two of them and they were soon
lost to the moon lit sky.
Where the trees thinned, they thought they saw NightStar and Wolf, and a small creature walking through the woods. Taking a downward angle they soon
saw that it was indeed Their friends and a small Purple? companion.
"Syx do You see that down there?"
"Yes Cc I do. I see Night and Wolf and another walking. I also see some movement in the brush close by them! We had better warn them of our find!!"
Flying closer to the treetops now, Syx and Cc can see what appear to be alligators? walking through the brush. No They are not Gators but, Tree limbs
with legs??! Yes that is what they are looking at!!
"What the devil are these CC?"
"I don't know Syx but maybe we should get down there and warn Night of them approaching?"
Syx finds a small clearing for them toland in and circles as He back flaps and begins to slow down. They land successfully and Cc climbs down to the
ground. Syx Shifts back into His Human form and gets His garments on that were in a satchel on His back. They walk towards NightStar, Wolf and their
One of the tree limbed creatures crossed their path just ahead and Syx called out to it.
"Who goes there?! Stop!!"
The creature merely looked at them and continued onwards. Syx ran up to it and was amazed at the sight! He jumped into the path of the long branch
creature. It had eight legs and eye stalks and a wide mouth all covered in tree bark.
"Are You wanting to speak to Me, or may I be on My way." It spoke.
"Forgive Me for looking so startled but I am at a loss for what I am seeing?!" Syx replied.
"I do not take offense. It happens all the time anymore. You creatures are a curious bunch. Over time I have seen many of You on My island. Human You
are called I take it? I am Stick. One of many here that seek only to live our long lives in peace." Stick said to the bewildered CC and Syx.
"Y,Y,Yes I am Human, and this is My wife CCBears. She is a Polar Bear." Syx stammered a reply.
"Thank You for clarifying what that large white animal is called. We have not seen Her kind here before." Stick casually mentioned. "Now if You don't
mind, I will be off. Until next We meet, good night." And the creature slowly walked away.
"NightStar can You Hear Me?!" Syx called out into the calm night.
"Over here Syx!!" Night returned.
Syx and CC walked towards the call of their Friend. Upon arrival and meeting Wanderer, Syx recalled the conversation He and Cc had with the stick
creature. Night was clearly amazed at the encounter He and CC had. They soon walked together into the night forest......
