The Stranger - Part 2

Taelyn: ...so then this huge girl on a GIGANTIC horse rode up. She scared the snot out of m.... my horses.

Miranda: Yeah, that'd be Nessa's changeling girl. She's lived with the fairies for ages, I guess.

Thorne: You mean Lenore?


Miranda: How come YOU know her name is Lenore? I didn't know her name was Lenore!

Taelyn: Lenore's not a big enough name for someone that big.

Devika: What do you know about her, Mr. Thorne.


Thorne: I know she's currently crying her eyes out on Nessa, but I don't know why. The fairy court sent her here, and now she's being sent away again...

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

Lenore: She must hate me ever so much, to send me away again. I barely just arrived!

Nessa: No, dearheart, Wendy doesn't hate you. She's really quite fond of you. She's sending you away for a surprise, but it'll be a good surprise. I promise. And you'll be back before you know it.

Lenore: Do you promise?


Nessa: I promise you, Little Wren, I promise. We'll all be here waiting for you when you get back, and it will be splendid.

Lenore: Okay, then I'm ready to go (sniffle).


Nessa: There's my brave girl! And the pixies have offered to watch your monkey while you're gone. Isn't that kind?

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

Miranda: We WHAT?!? Where on earth are we going to put a MONKEY?



Thorne: Well, it seemed like it might make the child feel better, so I told Nessa we could watch her monkey.

Taelyn: Wow, a monkey! I wonder if it likes games!

Devika: Monkeys are cute!
