N’Mara looked around the wet, dreary area she had entered. After the bright heat of the Golden Delta it was a shocking abrupt change. She saw a sign in one of the first shops advertising rain bubble charms. She smiled and went inside to dry off, change clothing, and purchase one of the charms. When she left the shop she was once again dry with a bubble surrounding her and protecting her from the rain. She stopped and looked at a statue of a boy with glowing foot prints in front of it. She tilted her head and wondered what the meaning of them was. (( There is a hud on the sim for the Echtra experience, I believe those are part of that.))
As she wandered this newest small town of shops she smiled at the people and creatures she saw. A small group of sheep gathered near a torch in a small alley bleated at her as she passed. She saw a fire-pit ahead with a few tiny hedgehogs sitting on logs. There was a giant cauldron hanging over the fire filled with a delicious smelling stew in it. The hedgehogs looked up as she stopped to peer in at the stew.
The smallest hedgehog smiled and said, “Would you like some? We made a big batch to sell to faire goers.”
She smiled down at him and pulled out a coin. “I would love some, it smells delicious.”
The bigger of the hedgehogs grunted and picking up a bowl he ladled some of the stew into it and handed it to her. He waved a hand at the empty tree stumps. “Please sit and enjoy. Our small town pulls the heat right from you humans it seems.”
She sat and after a few bites said, “Ah, not so for me, I am not human but statue.”
“Statue??” The smaller hedgehog squeaked. “But you walk around! You look alive to me.”
She nodded. “I am enchanted to appear alive. Much of the time I slumber in my natural stone.” She finished the last few bites of the soup before continuing. “My good friend Bright Horn wakes me every so often when there is need or she believes I will be interested in something going on, such as this faire.” She grinned and stood, leaning down to place the bowl near a small pile of other used ones. “Thank you for the soup. It is very tasty.” She bowed her head to them and continued down the road.
She reached the end of the road and went through the gates of the town out onto an open plain. In the distance she saw a small henge and intrigued headed towards it. She could feel the pulses of magic coming from it. As she approaches she saw a small golden light flitting within the henge. Coming to a stop just outside the circle of stones she watched captivated as a small gold fairy flew around inside of it. Watching close she realized it was an enchanted statue much like she. Only instead of being self aware it merely flew in a predetermined pattern inside the magic of the stone henge. She watched for a while mesmerized before she pulled out her teleporting scroll and randomly chose her next destination.
