We were quite afraid to meet the spirit of Mellowood, but our fears were misplaced. Thankfully, she is a joyful spirit with a laugh like a babbling brook and a fondness for pranks. It’s tradition to gift her with fruits every now and then, and we were encouraged to go.
Maybe we have long misjudged her. We see a great ragged shape flying through the stars on clear nights, and hear her trill laughter, and hear stories of a trickster in the woods. It’s no wonder we came to our own conclusions. But now perhaps we have a new friend, instead.
