Lenore got many beautiful presents for her Unbirthday.
Butterfly earrings from Andara -
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...
At least everyone but Taelyn seemed to feel it was a fox.
... that he had found wandering all alone in the yard, and tamed so Spot could come inside, and be out of the cold.
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. :)
