Evie scouts the northern woods for a troublesome ogre. But there are other creatures besides ogres lurking in the forest!
I was so fascinated by the squig licking my hand that I almost forgot about the youngling.
The poor little guy was struggling to push himself up on one elbow and he wiped his nose.
“Owwie…” he sniffled. He looked angry, but his eyes watered as if he was about to cry.
That made me feel even worse about dropping him and scolding him.
Once again, I bent over to comfort him, keeping a close eye on his drooling squig and it’s inquisitive tongue.
“Gosh, I’m so so sorry, little guy…I didn’t mean to drop you, but you startled me…”
He glanced upward as I reached out my hand to him.
“Come on,” I encouraged him. “Let’s go find your parents or your friends.”
