“We’re safe here in the forest until Marlon gets back. All of you, continue to rest and gain energy from bathing in the dappled light of the forest. Hopefully, we have found our new home.”
For 27 days and nights, they waited for Marlon to return. There was an anticipation of excitement in the air when he came back.
“Marlon, what have you found out? Can we live here?”
“I’m afraid not, your majesty.”
“What? Why not?”
“It’s some of the lifeforms of this world, Sir. They cut down the trees. Soon, nothing of this world will be left.”
Written in response to Charli Mill’s 99-word flash fiction challenge, with the theme of ‘Forest Bathing‘, over at the Carrot Ranch.
