Lenore's Unbirthday - Pt 2

They decided on "Pin the Smile on the Cheshire Cat" AFTER presents... but I think plans might have changed after she got Taelyn's gift... anyway....

Lenore got many beautiful presents for her Unbirthday.

Butterfly earrings from Andara -

A beautiful pendant and earring set from Gage and Rabbit -

Lenore opened a gift labeled "From: Montana Monkey" and in it was a tiny, purple horse.

Taelyn explained that he had taken Montana on a long trail drive while she was gone, so he wouldn't be sad, and they'd been rounding up wild horsies. He told her that this one had been the wildest horse, and was Montana's favorite, and that he told Taelyn he thought his favorite little girl should have it.

Lenore smiled, gave Taelyn a great big hug, and thanked him for not letting Montana be sad while she was away.

And Taelyn blushed for quite a while afterwards.

Lenore got a beautiful leather bound diary, lots more jewelry, a couple of lovely stuffed animals, and a bunch of stuff. And then Taelyn presented his gift...

...under a blanket...

And, asking everyone to be very quiet, gently pulled the blanket away to reveal....


At least everyone but Taelyn seemed to feel it was a fox.

Taelyn was quite insistant that it was a puppy dog he had cleverly named "Spot"...

... that he had found wandering all alone in the yard, and tamed so Spot could come inside, and be out of the cold.

Devika kept just saying "Oh dear. Oh DEAR". When asked by Miranda and Taelyn what was wrong, she said that she just wasn't sure how her present was going to feel about Taelyn's.

Before she could cry out "WAIT!" Lenore had opened the box and out peeked two blue eyes...

... belonging to a huge, fluffy white CAT!

Devika couldn't watch. But Lenore spoke gently to the kitty, who was a little surprised to meet a fox doggie, and slowly coaxed her to come out of the box.

The cat and the doggie looked at each other for what felt like a very long time.

And then the cat slowly climbed up in Lenore's lap, and began purring. The little doggie turned to go away, but Lenore called him back.

"Spot," she said, "You must promise to never be mean to my kitty Dinah, and I am certain that Dinah will promise to never be mean to you, because I love you both and you're both my friends now."

And so Spot curled up beside Lenore, and fell asleep.

And now the pixies secretly call Lenore the fox whisperer. :)


  1. That was beautiful. Fox whisperer! I love it.

  2. Happy Belated Unbirthday Lenore. I'm glad you had a nice party.
