Advent Story: Day 18

The grey creatures have been telling Federico and Coco about a little valley they know where lots of delicious food and interesting things can be found. They try and tell their new Forivorland friends how to get there...”go straight on at the grey tree, second right by the grey tree, keep going past the grey fields, past one yellow tree, right at the next grey tree”

Federico and Coco look blankly at the grey creatures - there’s no hope they will ever find the little valley and there is no time to go to their usual destination for presents and food. They beg the grey creatures to show them the way. 

The grey creatures mumble that it is too far to walk, especially after all that dancing. Their large feet are sore and all they want to do is have a sleep. If we only we could grow wings and fly they mutter under their breath.
