“Cabin Fever Part 4”

************

(Calabolt, Haru, and Yuki walks through the forest path)

{Haru}

“I can’t believe you! Why did you take something that doesn’t even belong to you?”

{Yuki}

“Well, no one wanted it.”

{Haru}

“Ughh… We could have been safely at home by now.”

{Yuki}

(grabbing onto Calabolt’s hair)

“The moon is outshining our path tonight and the forest looks pretty! I really don’t understand why you’re always so angry, Grumpy Uncle.”

{Haru}

(snaps)

“That assessment is false and you know it! I love the forest as much as any other forest elf! And why are you always riding Calabolt like you would a beast? You can fly, can’t you?”

{Yuki}

(smiles)

“Aww… Cala-chan doesn’t mind. Cala-chan is strong!”

(Calabolt looks up to Yuki and smiles as Haru gives off a look of disdain)

{Haru}

“May I remind you that if the moon is already out, it means we only have a few hours left before it completely disappears… I don’t think this is something you should rejoice about. Don’t tell me you already forgot why we need this key…”

(Yuki shrugs)

{Haru}

(sighs)

“Whatever… We’re nearly there, right?”

{Yuki}

(slowly nods)

“My house is just past the bridge over there! How I wish Nika were here. She would have enjoyed the trip and the beautiful scenery.”

{Calabolt}

“Yeah, but Cussy called right before we left. It must’ve been important.”

{Haru}

(coughs)

“In any case, we are just fetching an item. We can do it ourselves and…”

(an echo of faint laughter rings through the path)

{Calabolt}

(looking around nervously)

“W-What was that? For a moment there… I could have sworn…”

{Yuki}

“…Cala-chan? Cala-chan?”

{Calabolt}

“H-Huh?”

{Yuki}

“Is everything alright?”

{Calabolt}

“Y-Yeah… I just thought that I…”

(the stream of giggles flooded back)

{Calabolt}

“There it is again! That sounded like…”

{Haru}

“Ignore them, Calabolt.”

{Calabolt}

(surprised)

“Y-You can hear them too?”

{Haru}

“The Dryads? Of course, I do.”

{Yuki}

(looking around)

“Huh? I didn’t hear anything! What are you guys talking about?”

{Haru}

“Well, of course, you didn’t. Dryads only reveal themselves to people they are err… interested in.”

{Yuki}

“That isn’t fair! I also want them to be interested in me! Someone told me that they were pretty to look at and fun to play with!”

{Haru}

(sighs)

“Kazan used to say the same thing… Although, I can understand why the Dryads won’t show themselves to this player anymore. They can’t forgive the cold stare he gave after he got bored of dawdling with them…”

(Haru stops)

{Haru}

“Now that I think about it, it’s to be expected… Knowing him… He may seem warm and welcoming at first but…”

{Yuki}

(ruffles his feathers)

“I looked everywhere but I really don’t see anything! Are you sure you guys aren’t playing tricks on me? It’s not funny…”

{Haru}

“The mind of a child might not comprehend it yet but… Mark my words, you do not want these female’s attention. Let’s leave it at that, shall we?”

(For a brief moment, Calabolt notices Haru shuddering)

{Yuki}

“Oooh! We can almost see my house from here!”

{Calabolt}

“Where?”

{Yuki}

“Over there! See the highest tree on the hill?”

{Calabolt}

“Oh… You live in a… treehouse?”

{Yuki}

(glowing excitedly)

“It’s a fort!”

{Calabolt}

(nervously sweats)

“O-Oh…”

(the group approaches the bridge)

{Calabolt}

(turns around)

“….mhmmm?”

{Yuki}

“Hmmm? What is it Cala-chan? Is it those pesky dryads again?”

{Calabolt}

“Uhmm… No. I hear something else… It’s like screeching noises and… Is someone being attacked?!”

(looking at each other, the group hurriedly runs toward the noise)

{Yuki}

(peeking from the bushes)

“Oh! It’s just the Dragulyths. They screech while feeding on those helpless shiny flowers.”

{Calabolt}

“B-But I thought I heard a cry for help…”

{Yuki}

(frowning)

“It might be from those poor shiny flowers…”

{Calabolt}

“But aren’t they just flowers…?”

{Haru}

“Hmmm? Shiny flowers? You mean the Bloomsprites?”

{Calabolt}

“Bloomsprites? They just look like dandelions to me.”

{Haru}

“Dandelions? No, and they aren’t flowers! They are what some faes call lesser creatures. But they are sentient just like you and me.”

{Calabolt}

“Sorry… So, they have Majïk?”

{Haru}

“In a way, all of us have Majïk.”

{Yuki}

“It’s always happening during this time of the cycle. The meanie Dragulyths keep scaring away and eating the shiny flowers.”

{Haru}

“Well, it is the time for Bloomsprites to mate and for the Dragulyths to prepare their hibernation…”

{Yuki}

(flies in between the Dragulyths and the Bloomsprites)

“I can’t take it anymore! Hey! I thought I told you to not harm the shiny flowers! Bad Dragulyths!”

(shocked, the dragulyths flew away)

{Yuki}

“That’s right! And don’t come back!”

{Haru}

“Yuki… They aren’t doing this because they are evil. It’s just the circle of life.”

{Yuki}

“I don’t care! I… ouch!”

(Bloomsprites turn on Yuki, stinging him repeatedly)

{Yuki}

“Hey! I just helped you guys! Why are you being so mean?”

{Calabolt}

“Maybe they thought you were going to attack them?”

{Haru}

“Hmmm… I heard that they are a bit territorial…”

{Yuki}

“Oww… let’s just get out of here!”

(Haru and Calabolt follows a fleeing Yuki to his doorstep)

{Yuki}

(panting)

“I think we lost em…”

{Calabolt}

“Uhhh… Yuki.”

(Yuki looks to where Calabolt is pointing at)

{Yuki}

“Oowww!”

(Bloomsprites attack Yuki as he approaches the door)

{Haru}

(whispers to himself)

“Is it because Yuki invaded their territory? That may explain the first wave but why do they attack Yuki relentlessly? Sure, they claim a large area for their own but we should have passed their borders by now… I haven’t heard of any Bloomsprite getting this aggressive to a fae. Maybe…”

{Yuki}

“Oww… Let’s just get inside!”

(Calabolt reaches for Yuki, shielding him from the Bloomsprite’s assault)

{Haru}

“Hmmm… Come to think of it, it’s been ages since I last visited.”

(the group take refuge inside Yuki’s home)

{Yuki}

“Welcome to my tree fort!”

{Haru}

“Ughh… Couldn’t you keep this place a bit cleaner? I mean, why do you need all this junk?”

{Yuki}

“This isn’t junk! All of these are my treasures!”

(Calabolt walks in the house, stepping on mountains of shiny trinkets)

{Calabolt}

(scratches his head)

“H-How can we hope to even find this key in time now? The moon is getting higher and higher?!”
