The elderly woman gestured to the companions to come closer, the wind gently blowing her long white hair. The companions cautiously
stepped up to the rickety porch with peeling paint and introduced themselves. The elderly woman nodded her head. "I have heard of you in the
prophesies. You have recently been to war and won victoriously. I know." She winked. "I am Enyonna, keeper of sacred and secret things and other
wonders. The stagasuarus is guardian of Lavender Fields where we live. He is a magnificent creature, is he not?" Her voice was soft and lyrical.
"Please, have a meal with me and some herbal tea. I can't remember the last time we have had company in these parts. It isn't often we have anyone
trusting enough that we can allow in."
They followed Enyonnna into the house and were surprised at the beauty and hominess of the place compared to the outside of the house. The old woman
read their faces. "Oh, the outside is magically transformed whenever anyone comes near enough to see it. It is not meant to be found by just anyone
and if someone does stumble by, we don't appear as a place that would harbor such treasures." She excused herself for a few moments and returned with
a young woman who carried a platter filled with meat, cheese, bread, fruit and nuts while the elderly woman brought the tea. "This is my Granddaughter
Elisia." She gestured toward the beautiful young woman. Elisia smiled shyly before quietly taking her leave.
Pesky of course could be silent no longer. "I want to know about the sacred and secret things! How did you come to be the keeper and get the cool
stagasaurus and..." The elf blushed. "Pesky, please, mind your manners!" Pesky in her famous stance of hands on hips was rebellious as usual. "What? I
want to know. You want to know too. We all do. Sheesh, just admit it already!" The heady scent of flowers wafted through the open windows as the
sunlight streamed across the wooden floor. A warm Summer wind danced across their bodies and birds sang cheerily from their trees.

You mean that says F*** the USA ? Heh I got it as a present. Ok I saw the other comment to Rain. And to Rain well, eh. It's a song and who the hell
cares what people think. They don't do it often enough.

Heh yep. Some times were very difficult, but now things are going better so all is well! And my friend is suggesting I ask his sister out. A nice
date. Hm. I'm feeling rather stupid with matters of relationships right now. Social situations are definitely not my strong suit.
