At the Lamp-Post
Lanisen hurries through the woods, keeping to the cover of the trees and glancing up frequently. He looks like he passed a sleepless night.
Applebud scampers around the Lamp-post collecting nuts.
Lanisen veers toward her, glancing up again. “Applebud, Applebud, hey, what’re you doin’ out?”
Applebud glances up at Lanisen, holding up an acorn. “I wanted to gather some nuts for the Dragon in case he likes them.”
Lanisen says, “Ohhh boy, all right.” He drops to one knee. “If you see the dragon, I want you to hide, all right? Don’t try to talk to it. Don’t let it see you.”
