Wow…. After the whole event between Kabora, Raven, the Elven Prince, Fen couldn’t help but bite her cheek to hold back the giggles. The look on the Odnalro’s face was priceless! Why would the elves stop Raven from loving anyone she wanted anyways? And….. Fen didn’t notice it until now, but there seems to be more then one kind of elf… Kabora wasn’t a forest elf so they didn’t like him…. How silly, really. Fen would think that, if anyone, Elves would dislike humans more then they would dislike a different kind of elf. Oh well. It was soon over, and Fen went back to gabbing to anyone who would listen about her dreams (It seemed nice that someone cared about them, and didn’t think her crazy for having such strange and sometimes frightening dreams). As afternoon started to come, Fen finished up her stories, and started to notice some changes around her. For one, the trees were becoming bigger and bigger with their top branches touching each other, covering the entire floor in a light shadow. The elves too, seemed to be changing: they seemed more serious and cautious, and all of them had their bows and arrows at hand and ready. Quite a few times, Sed had stopped to use his flute/wind relic to send musical messages to other elven scouts. And Fen, after hearing the tune a few times, was starting to be able to pick up the responses from the others as a tiny breeze floated by her ears. At one point, the group found a clearing and decided to stop and have a break. Fen dashed for the spot and reached her arms out for that light. “Sun!! There you are!!!” Fen said as the rest took their time to reach the spot and sit and relax. The elves warned that the forest was only going to get darker, so Fen decided to enjoy this as much as possible.… Then, as the others started to sit, Fen saw something odd happen… a little black line came across… “Ummm… someone?? What’s… what’s happening to the sun???” Cambei was the one who came first, and looked up as that sliver slid across the sun, making it darker and darker. “It’s an eclipse Fen, don’t worry, these things will be over in a few seconds, and are actually quite pretty.” Fen nodded as the shadow slid over the sun, only leaving a thin ring left. But, seconds started to slip into minutes and the darkness did not just leave. “Cambei? Is… is that supposed to happen?” “Well… usually… no….” “Please, tell me the sun will be back! I don’t want it to stay like that!” But, no one said anything, other then giving Fen the odd hug, to show that even if the sun left forever, they would still be there. But… why did it leave in the first place! And, why wasn’t it back yet!!!!?!?!? Just as tears started to come to Fen’s eyes as she gave up hope in seeing it again… it was what? Almost half an hour now? Ok, maybe less, but Fen couldn’t tell, it was just an unnaturally time and that’s what scared her. But, right in the middle of her sobbing, the black cover started to slide away, and the sun came out once again. Everyone gave out a sigh of relief, and Fen was the first to speak. “Well, that was weird.” She said, trying to lighten the mood that was brought on by the event. Soon, after a longer break so Fen could enjoy the light the elf prince had stopped the band and addressed the group. “Newcomers, I ask you go as silent as possible for the rest of the journey. The heart of the forest is filled with many dangers. Even our most skilled scouts don’t travel these parts alone. But, as long as we stay on the path we have set, there should not be any trouble.” Fen slowly shifted over to the toughest and least scared person: Fugg, at the idea of danger, and tucked herself between his long, red jacket and his giant leg. Fugg raised an eyebrow at first, but unsurprisingly, did not speak and even after a few minutes walk, rested a strong hand on Fen’s shoulder. As they went on further into the forest, the trees became so large, that the trunks seemed about the same width as a normal house, and up…. Well, they just when up and up forever into the darkness of their own branches which now choked up most of the light, making about as dark as night itself… Fen remembered the goblins and the gross, gross spiders and almost held her breath the entire time while clutching Fugg’s waist. Someone Fen had no idea whether it was an elf or one of her friends, had noted that the sun was now low in the sky. How could they tell? Fen had no idea… it just looked like the same sort of eternal darkness to her. Now, almost out of no where, they came up to something a bit different: to Fen, it looked like a wall that was half vines, half sharp, killer, and probably poisonous knives. The natural wall of ropes and blades seemed to stretch on forever to the left and right. And although there was a top, it seemed very… very… very high up… Fen couldn’t imagine the most nimble of squirrels being to climb that wall without being stabbed to death, let alone the entire band of elves and the group. “Oh… We’re lost, aren’t we?” Fen said from under Fugg’s jacket. How the heck were they supposed to get out of this darkness now???
