"Why, of course," Lone said. He walked to the shelf and felt through the tomes Night had given him. He found one of special virtue and picked it off the shelf, opening it up to calmly glance over. "These books are precious to me. This one, of the unseen words of treespeak, most especially. With but a soft, gentle hum, one may enchant a tree and thus also be enchanted back from one. Speaking to the trees and flowers enlivens this forest, keeps it healthy and strong, thus protective of us all." He opened his eyes and saw that Night was falling asleep, head low. She had indeed been weighted by worries as of late. Here, with her old friend, she felt comforted. Her comfort allowed her great rest. Lone smiled and whispered a blessing upon her, placed the book back upon the shelf, and sat back down in his chair. Her head lay to his shoulder, soon deep asleep. Lone closed his eyes and listened to the crackling flame, fiery yet gentle, on and on, until he lost himself in dream.
