Took a break and did another mini challenge to kick this out before my 15 minutes was up...
Several seasons had come and gone, and the once young Buren was now a sprawling, sweating, young man of twenty one seasons. He helped cut down larger trees, move larger rocks that the elves of Stonehowl could not, due to his massive frame.
Other things had changed at Stonehowl as well. Shadow had led a small band of tribe members on another exploration of the surroundings areas and discovered a small tribe of Elves down by the River, who bore several similarities, according to Buren, to fishing villages that he was familiar with. One of those changes was that Snowcloud had decided to remain with these fisher-elves, who called themselves the Silver FishHolt.
She would send messages about how she was, by elves who traveled back and forth, during trades for various supplies. Every now and then, the two tribes would come to celebrate and dancing, and combine tribes for one night.
Several female elves fawned over Spearclaw, and his rich, bronze tan that he had gotten as a former tribe member of the Pridewalkers, but still, after so many seasons, his only true interest was Stillbreeze. He did not decline the company of many of those elves; but even during the most intimate moments, his mind still drifted to her.
Echo had met a female there that had great power to shape water; and whenever he was around her, he felt his body tingle. He could not tell if it was because of his ability to pick up “echoes” of where magic had been used; or if he had strange feelings for this young maiden named Waterspout. On the latest celebration, he had given her a rose, his cheeks blushing as red as its pedals.
