They had a long day and Night Star was pleased that the butterflies were teaching her their language. How amazing! She was so excited.
Pesky rolled her eyes. "I've always known how to speak to butterflies. If one is brought up properly, they are taught at a very young age. It's
helpful to them that you can warn them when a spider or bird comes along and tries to grab them. And they know things. They travel and hear and see
what's going on everywhere. And...they talk to flowers who also know things." Night was surprised that Pesky knew so much.
Up ahead was an Inn called The Enchanted Hollow. It would be nice to stay a while, have decent meals, their clothes washed and their bodies bathed
with scented soaps and oils. As they approached, Night felt a little tug at her belt. When she looked down, there was her pouch and magical gems.
"What the...????" Pesky landed on her shoulder. "What? What did I miss? What happened?" The elf looked to her left and then the right, but saw no
one there. Hugo stopped quickly and asked what was wrong. "My pouch and the gems! Look!" She pointed to the velvet pouch that held her gems and
crystals. Wolf paced back and forth and sniffed the air for signs of someone's presence. They were all stunned.
Hugo sat and stretched his rainbow wings wide, then held them close to his side. "Let's get to the Inn, we'll discuss this over a hot meal." They
all agreed and entered the Enchanted Hollow. A few burly men were drinking and laughing in one corner. A small group of dwarfs were arguing over the
architectural design of a cave they had been working on. At another table sat a group of men and women all engaged in deep conversation of their
They approached a sturdy wooden table in a corner opposite the burly men. A rather robust and cheerful woman soon came to take their orders and
inquired as to if they would be needing rooms. Patiently they waited for their meals of roast beef and vegetables, warm herbal bread, cheese and
drinks they never heard of but they ordered at the recommendation of the Inn keeper's wife who was serving them. Once their bellies were full and
their minds at ease with the alcoholic beverage, they decided to bathe and get some sleep. They hadn't yet discussed the mysterious re-appearance of
the gems. That would have to wait until morning. There was nothing they could do about it anyway.
The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated with paintings, velvet drapes and arched stained glass windows. The beds had canopies, embroidered
pillows and thick comforters with a floral design. The hardwood floors were covered with plush rugs in beautiful colors and designs. The bed side
table had a large vase of fresh cut flowers whose fragrant scent filled the air and candles in silver holders. After Night Star disrobed, she soaked a
while in the warm inviting scented water, dried off with a big fluffy towel and lied down to sleep. Wolf lie at the side of the bed on one of the
plush rugs and was content. Hugo also chose a rug to sleep on. Pesky settled into one of the big, soft flowers and all was well.
