Bob the Tree Returns to His Old Self

A spark of light in a dying fire

treeZleiphneir sighed and smeared some of his green healing fluid onto Bob. The weight of Bob’s continued illness bore down harder on him each day. “Hello dear ex-goat!” said Sasha Lilas, smiling warmly. Z went to respond but was leapt on by Keida. Sasha’s gentle demeanour shifted, her eyes ablaze with crimson and she stormed off down the path, her cloak trailing behind her. “Hey Z,” said an oblivious and grinning Keida. “She’s a funny one,” Z remarked. They watched Sasha disappear in silence before a short discourse ensued, and strangely, Sasha returned.

Zleiphneir
I am quite well indeed, although troubled by Tree’s constant illness. We have decided it is time we must fix him.

Keida
He’ll be ok, right?

Zleiphneir
If we don’t do something, no, he won’t be. He is already damaged terribly. Such sparkles as you might have once seen from him, he can no longer bring himself to make.

Sasha Lilias returned to the scene, her crimson eyes gleaming, and she laughed.

The tree shall die, slowly and painfully.

Keida glared, her eyes turning red as her form shimmered.

Zleiphneir
She is correct. If we do not do something, he will.

Sasha Lilias blinked, her eyes returning to the deep blue they once were.

sasha lilias
*smiles warmly* How are you, Z?

Zleiphneir
Troubled my double-headed friend.

sasha lilias
My sister and I could try to help if you wish?

Keida
Please do Sasha.

Zleiphneir
We need lots of people who care. Many people, their thoughts and energy.

Keida
Whatever will help bob.

sasha lilias
Z, my music can help. I found this out when I was younger. I don’t quite know how, but it is as if the wood it was crafted from is still alive and in touch with the surrounding nature. Animals gather at the tunes.

Zleiphneir
Your music would be wonderful, but it must be amplified by will, not enough care as you do.

sasha lilias
I believe that if my sister and I worked together we may just be able to make him feel a little better.

sasha lilias
Perhaps we should try?

Zleiphneir
Do try…try all you can.

sasha lilies
I shall call for my sister. Oh, just a warning… um, I have never tried this before… I do believe it will work, but it may take some time…

Zleiphneir
Tree loves music; Marvolo used to play him tunes on his flute.

Marvolo coincidentally woke up and opened one eye.

Marvolo
Wha?

Lunar priestess
You called for me sister?

sasha lilias
Sister, we need your hand.

Lunar priestess
May I ask why?

sasha lilias
I believe if we play music together for Bob, we may be able to heal him, sister.

Lunar priestess
I am not sure about this.

Marvolo
Why did I wake up hearing my name, actually?

sasha lilias
We need your music Marvy.

Marvolo
Oh? For what reason?

sasha lilias
I think we may be able to help him revive a little. Not much, but enough to extend his life a good while.

Marvolo grabbed his bag and took his lute from it

sasha lilias
Wait.

Marvolo
Hm?

sasha lilias
We need more people.

Marvolo
I can’t magically summon a crowd, sorry.

Keida
Hold on, Z and I can run to get more people.
