The Crystal Lands
THE FINAL CHAPTA
"Father, why don't you go back to the castle? Mother would be glad to see you." Vein suggested.
"Hmph. I suppose." Acid flew off.
As they got to the tree dome, they saw Blicket trying to feed meat to Chroneo.
"It's food, take it!"
"Hey, uhm, did you know we eat crystals?" Hurricane asked.
"Uhm, yeaaahhhhh, sure," She answered, running outside.
"And for everyone else," Vein announced, looking at Flame, "we must prepare for a long wait. Now, it is getting cold outside. I want everyone to do their part. Hurricane can stay with the three as Flame collects wood, with your sharp talons," she added, gesturing to them, "Blicket can hunt for you all, and I can help Quinter gather sticks and mud and leaves to help build this dome all-around for winter. Got it? Tell Blicket when she gets back to help you gather wood, Flame."
"Got it!" Flame ran outside.
"Sure, let's go!" Quinter did, too.
"I'll be there in a minute," added Vein.
"You, Hurricane," she said, "are the one final piece in my life. And they may be impatient, but I can wait a whole entirety with you."
Nuzzling her, as Vein ran out, "Okay," was the answer.
