They had walked for days being shown various forms of plant and animal life. Hugo had also revealed the secret of portals, like they had
on her previous world and where to find them. In the forest, they were found through trees, trees that had a door on the front of them and symbols
depicting where you would end up. These trees were huge and you could wander through rooms inside of them. In one of the rooms you would find the
portal. In some of them, there were beings that actually lived inside.
Night Star noticed that Hugo had gone missing without a word. "Where the hell did he go?" She asked Storm. Before he could answer a strange voice
came from a branch overhead. "Gone!" Night saw that they had crows here too only this one had a crown of purple feathers atop his shiny black head.
"Gone where?" She asked. "Gone away!" It replied and cocked his head and eyed her with its beady black eyes. The elf rolled her eyes. "I can see
we're going to get a lot out of you oh wise one." She joked. The pixie flew up to sit beside the bird. "I am Pesky, what is your name?" The crow
hopped away a bit, wanting more space between them. "Leela. I am Leela. Leeeeeeela." "Did you see where Hugo went Leela?" Asked the pixie. The
shiny bird cocked her head again and blinked her liquid black eyes. "Here, then gone, just gone!"
Storm leaned in toward the tall tree. "Did Hugo disappear into thin air?" Leela's wings fluttered for a moment. "Into...somewhere." Night Star
sighed. "Great, now what are we supposed to do?" The pretty bird jumped around on the branch and cawed. "Beware the night things." The elf was
concerned. "What...things? "The things that come out in the dark." With that, the purple crowned crow flew off leaving them confused and
frightened. It was nearing dusk and they decided to make camp. The elf, dragon, wolf and pixie huddled together, tired yet guarded.
