Sun dappled leaves swayed in the breeze as morning broke. Night Star yawned widely and stretched. She gently pushed the wolf aside so she
could stand. The white wolf stretched his front legs and arched his back, then sat and sniffed the air. Storm too was just awakening and spread his
massive wings casting shadows. In the distance they could see Hugo approaching. "Oh good, maybe now we can explore and learn more about this place
and its inhabitants and history." the dragon exclaimed.
Hugo landed in front the companions. He looked rather distracted, but Night didn't know him well enough to pry and find out why. "Good morning Hugo!
I am relieved that you have returned, there is so much we would like learn."
"There is too much to tell. Perhaps it would help if I took you into the great cities and their houses of knowledge and history. I could tell you
some things, but you could gather some of the best books and share them with your other friends."
Night was startled. "The cities? Cities, are you serious? You mean cities where their is chaos and noise and technology and..." She couldn't even
finish her sentence at first she was so overwhelmed. "I am a forest elf and though I have been many places and seen many things, I abhor cities! I
would be out of my element, confused and lost and..."
Hugo smirked and wondered if all elves were as emotional as this one. "They are abandoned cities Night Star, cities whose residents have killed each
other off in wars. And they called themselves civilized. Ha! Or... you could continue forward to the forgotten forest. It holds secret knowledge,
mystery, magic and wonder."
Storm and Night were hesitant to choose. "Why is it the forgotten forest if it is so wondrous a place?" Asked Night.
Hugo chuckled. "This realm is a big place with beings and other sentient life forms in every corner. Many have simply forgotten it even exists. They
have long ago moved on to explore and inhabit other places. Ah...there is still much to see and learn."
Night Star heaved a heavy sigh, sat still upon a fallen log and was lost in thought.
