"In this world, we have a thing we call 'the sun.' It is a great ball of light, and when it is overhead we call it 'daytime.' 'Daytime' is when civilized creatures do their business!" she reprimanded in the most condescending manner possible.

The wind of the grove seemed to wax and wane with the fairy's anger. It was quite gusty at the moment.

"I am sorry, " Myranda said.

"You certainly are. I want you here at dawn tomorrow. Just because you are showing an unusual amount of prowess for someone of your stunted species does not give you the right to disrupt my way of life, " she said.

"Ayna, enough!" came Deacon's voice from behind.

"Oh, good heavens, another one. Do you things travel in packs?" Ayna raved.

"You know that she just got through with Solomon, and he likes to work at night, " Deacon said.

"That may be so, but I could hardly be confused for that beast. Now, if you two are through irritating me, I would like to get a bit more sleep before I begin passing on real wisdom, " Ayna said, whisking off before any more could be said.

"What can I say? Ayna excels at first impressions, " Deacon said.

"I have not been having very pleasant dreams. In fact I have come to dread them, " she said.

"How so?" he asked.

She quickly recounted the dreams of the dark field, the dreams of Lain's treachery, and the darkness that spoke with her voice. All the while Deacon nodded with concern.

"I see. The dreams of Lain are understandable, but the others. . . they seem to have an almost prophetic quality to them. Were I you I would not wish to silence them. In times to come they could provide much-needed clues about. . . well. . . times to come, " he said.

"Well, if you really believe that, I suppose I can suffer through them, " she said.

"Oh, indeed I do, " he said. "And from now on, while we take our morning meal together, I would greatly appreciate it if you would tell me any dreams you may have."
