Day passed quickly into night. They had spent the entire day with the sun keepers, singing and dancing and eating a fine roast around the
fire pit. There were root vegetables and fruits of every kind as well. They explained to curious minds how in the colder weather they hibernated
inside the trunks of huge ancient trees. They would spend Autumn winding down, cuddled in warm soft blankets, reading and telling stories to each
other. They would drink herbal teas and special sun keeper cookies that would nourish their bodies throughout the long colder months. The group
listened with fascination and wonder until their new found friends had to leave.
Night Star looked around and noticed that Syx and CC had gone off somewhere. It's not like they've never done that before, but Night was always
disappointed when they didn't say goodbye or say where they were off to. It was a beautiful warm night with stars reflected in the water like tiny
diamonds dancing. The group returned to the forest, made camp and reflected on the lovely day before falling into a deep and restful sleep.
