The Magical Herd

The Rainforest


You leave Wynn and the sleeping cub and continue along a path through the rainforest. There seemed to be many brightly coloured birds and wherever you looked there were small animals scurrying about their important business. But eventually you came across another leagus, also a white female like Wynn. She gets up off the ground, then stretches and yawns.

"If I had known I was going to have visitors I would have put off my nap!" she says with a smile. "My name is Rashella, from the Pragosi Rainforest. Well, I was born there anyway..."

Though she hadn't done anything yet, you knew this was a fun loving leagus who wouldn't think practical jokes to be beneath her. She was cheerful and happy. "Have you met all the other leagi of the rainforest? Well, just wander about, I'm sure you will. I used to live with Timicin. He and Chyo and Jeno took care of me when I was just a cub. Jeno is so much fun to be around! He's scared of his own shadow! I used to play tricks on him all the time. Chyo on the other hand was no fun at all. She would just get angry and flap her ears about. Oh, I see you've already noticed that." She laughs.

"Timicin was really nice and kind to me. More like a brother than a guardian. I'm still pretty close to him. Noooo, not that way. Like I said, more like a brother. I could never take him as my mate. He's calm and stable and polite. I guess tricks would work on him, but I never really felt like pulling anything on him. He's just to sweet!" she beams.

"Then there's Wynn. She's really good with the little ones. I spent many an afternoon curled up under her wing," Rashella nods. "All the cubs seem to do that, even the winter ones. They're the hardest to find, usually they only show up around Christmas time but if you look hard enough they can be found. The whole family. No, there's just the three of them. Guess that means you found them all," she smiles. "But that doesn't mean there are any more, and no, I'm not telling!"

"Alright, I'll be honest. I spent all this time trying to think up a joke I could play on you, but nothing came to mind. Besides, you seem pretty nice too. Though that doesn't mean I won't have something ready the next time you stop by," a sneaky grins crosses her face. "Don't be too long in coming back, it will be really good, I promise you won't want to miss it!"

Acutally, you had the feeling that you rather would. Though you were sure *she* would enjoy it. You'll have to ask the others how *tricky* her tricks were, because in the end, she seemed nice enough to be around and you wouldn't want a little joke to get in the way.
