Light the furnace! Bring wood! Bring the axes out fast

Fell the trees that grow tall

No longer they last

And the townsfolk they gather again, working, now all as one

In the silence they fill, together, now under the sun

Dee doo de de do da da da da da da da daaa

Da da da da da da, da da da da daaa

Bada bum bum bum bum bum bada bum bum bum bum

Da da da da da da dadum dum dum dum dum

And the bells are ringing out, from whence they came….

He was extremely energetic for about an hour or so, until he had worn himself out, then he had fallen silent.

'Cam' he said after a time glancing towards him drowsily. 'Could you please take the reins?'

'Um…alright…'

'There's nothing to it' Durril said handing the reigns over to him. 'Sapphire will lead the way…just keep to this road and you'll be fine…'

He leant away from Cam then, resting against wood beside him and closing his eyes.

Cam watched him silently, before looking ahead again.

He swallowed nervously as he held the reigns, but the horse didn't seem to notice the driver had changed, and if she did, she didn't care.

Cam was at first nervous about holding the reigns, but after a time he felt a little more at ease, until they approached a fork in the road.

'Durril!' he said urgently nudging him. 'What do I do?'

Durril groaned awake, furrowing his brow moodily at being disturbed. 'Left' he mumbled.

Cam didn't move.

'Pull the left reign' Durril told him. 'Gently now…'

Cam did so, and Sapphire tossed her head, turning gently to one side as Cam moved her.

'There' Durril said with satisfaction once they were on the right road. 'Not so bad.'

Durril grinned happily to himself as he sat back again, closing his eyes and drifting off.

Cam glanced towards him, before looking ahead again. The horse seemed to know what she was doing.

Cam sat back, holding the reigns lightly in his hands. He let out a sigh, feeling relaxed.

This surprised him.

They travelled onwards for some time, their journey uneventful, until Cam saw something approaching them on the road. A carriage like the one they led now, heading in their direction. Like theirs it was brightly painted, and pulled along by a long maned white and black horse, like Sapphire.

'Durril?' Cam said nervously.

Durril woke quickly, yawning and rubbing his face, before looking at the road ahead of them, blinking wearily.

Cam became a little nervous as he saw Durril tense.

'What?' Cam asked him shortly, becoming a little scared now. 'What's wrong?'

'Nothing!' Durri

l said beaming now and rising to his feet.

'Then what-?'

'HEEEEYY!' Durril called, standing tall and waving at the figures on the carriage approaching theirs.

Cam saw as the two figures sitting on the carriage, a man and a woman, stood also, waving and calling back to Durril.

Cam let out a heavy sigh, slumping back in his seat with relief. For a moment he had feared the worse.

'Here' Durril said taking the reins from him and snapping them sharply. 'Let's get this thing parked up' he said as Sapphire tossed her head back, trotting quickly as Durril directed her off the road and onto the grass nearby.

Durril pulled the reins back sharply and Sapphire stopped abruptly, skidding to a halt. The carriage approaching them had done the same, pulling up beside theirs.

Cam got a closer look at the man and woman who rode in this carriage. It was clear at a glance that they were gypsies, with their bright clothes and bandana's tied around their heads to keep their black hair back, their skin was tanned and both wore dark eyeliner.

'Durril!' the man cried, climbing out of the driver's seat and leaping across the space between them and right onto their carriage.

Cam stared back a little shocked at this as the stranger appeared right by his side. He shrank back nervously as Durril embraced the man tightly.

'It's so good to see you again brother!' Durril sang.

'As it is you' the man beamed.

They broke apart, and Durril moved past him, jumping onto the other carriage towards the woman.

Cam glanced around the stranger's body as he stood beside him, watching as Durril and this gypsy woman kissed, holding each other tightly as if their life depended on it.

'So who are you?' the gypsy man asked Cam, breaking his attention from the couple. 'I've not see you before?' he continued, as Cam leant away, staring up at him. 'Are you a stray or something? What is your name?'

'Um….me? I'm just….Cam…'

'Well, my name is Lel' the gypsy replied, bending forward and extending his hand for Cam to take. 'It's nice to meet you.'

'Yes' Cam said, tentatively reaching forwards and shaking his hand. 'You too.'

'What a happy reunion!' Durril sang from behind Lel, climbing down from the other carriage and helping the gypsy woman down also.

Cam watched the couple.

'This is Zeana' Durril introduced, resting a hand upon her shoulder. 'She is named after the goddess you worship in this kingdom. A bold name indeed.'

They made a camp together shortly after, then sat around the fire and talked and ate and were merry.
