Neighbourhood Watch

If you live near woodland, you probably have fauns for neighbours. You might hear their reedy songs and the clip-clop of their hooves, but you’ll probably never see them. They’re very shy, and rightly so; a lot of predatory animals want to eat them.

Some folks may befriend the fauns quite by accident. They don’t like being looked for, you see, so you should pretend that they don’t exist, or that you can’t see them. If you see fresh hoofprints, exclaim, “oh, I wonder what could have made these?” If you ever see one, claim aloud to have seen a spirit rather than a faun – the family will feel safer if they think they’re undetected. They may start to play games with you, dashing away before they’re seen clearly.
