Syx flies into the cool night sky searching for a lost Friend. Off towards the interior of the island below He soars easily staying aloft on the warm
updrafts coming up from the island below Him. He Loves being able to Shape Shift from Human into Dragon form at will. Such a delight to own the
ability! He spotted the lost Friend who had gone missing a few days before, below walking near a small river.
Syx hollers down to Him, "Just travel the way I am now going to fly and You will find the Camp soon enough!" "Thanx Buddy!" His Friend replied.
The night air is cooling off the island surface, but for now there are plenty of warm air pockets coming up from Him below. Syx flies towards their
camp a short way then seeing an area lit from what looks like a campfire, Syx turns Himself towards the new strange lighted area. He knows it is not
the campfire of His other friends, as that is off in the other direction He was flying.
Syx knows his Friends are concerned for Their other Friend who was missing and He should carry the good news of His sighting of Him, that He was well
and on His way back to camp, but He decided to go towards the other fire lit area first.
Nearing the light source, which is indeed a campfire, Syx can see some figures seated around the warm fire. Diving lower, to get a better look, Syx is
startled at the nearing sight before him!
It looks like the 'People' are not People at all, but humanoid shaped figures, with what looks like, pumpkins for heads!!!
Seeing a clear area to land in, Syx heads for it so He may get on the ground and get a real close look at the strangeness He saw!!!
Landing as quietly as He can, Syx takes a few steps and then shape shifts into His Human form.
Looking around for some clothing, some that He has stashed in several places around the woods, He soon finds some. He quickly puts on the garments.
Now walking towards the large campfire, He wonders what will happen when He walks into the fire area.
Now only about 20 yards from his destination, Syx begins to see, closer now, that yes the heads of these Entities are indeed Pumpkins! With eyes,
nose, and mouths carved out of the once ordinary pumpkins He knew of!Syx walked right up behind one of the creatures and says, "Hello!! Do you have
room for a stranger to sit with You all?!"
There were a few dozen of the 'People' sitting around staring into the fire and then They all turned towards Syx. Most turned Their heads slowly to
see the Stranger amongst Them, but the one Syx had walked up behind, turned It's head so fast that it spun on It's shoulders a few times!! It reached
up It's 'hands' and turned It's head to the proper angle to see Syx behind It. It's body was still facing towards the fire so now the head was
completely backwards so It could see Syx standing there with his mouth dropped open in amazement! It was quite a sight indeed!!
"Yes fellow traveler, You may come near the fire to warm Yourself. Just sit down." The backwards facing pumpkin head said in a voice that had an echo
sound to it. The fellow seemed to be quite mellow in His behavior. I am guessing It was a He! The others merely watched as Syx stepped over the many
small logs that were cut to just the right length, placed on end for sitting on. They were however, placed a far distance from the fire!
"Thank You for Your kindness in letting Me join You" Syx replied to the one who spoke to him.
Syx noticed the 'hands' of These Beings were kind of similar to Our own. They were made of straw, or hay? There were Three 'fingers', and an opposable
Thumbs, and He could see that they did bend and would be able to grasp objects, like We can do. But it was an odd sight to be sure! Their feet were
the same as Their hands, as far as what they were made of, and had only four toes. He assumed Their whole body was made of straw, or hay as well. They
wore no shoes. Their clothes were mostly old tattered long sleeved Flannel shirts, and They wore old riped up Blue Jeans. Some wore old faded
Syx thought to Himself, 'Hmmm, so this is why the seats are placed so far away from the fire.'
Several large Crows flew into the campfire area and all the Beings jumped up and ran towards the Birds waving Their arms to make them fly away. They
also were Screaming in high pitched sounds that was quite unbearable!
After the birds flew off, The Pumpkin Headed Beings returned calmly to the fire area and sat down. They once again just sat there and stared into the
flames of the warming fire.
Syx asked one of Them, " Why did You All do that!?"
One replied, "They like to eat Our heads, and We cannot just let that happen, now can We?"
"No! I guess not!" Syx responded feeling a bit afraid for Them.
