Prairie is a good start for candle running.

Prairie is a good start for candle running. The traveling spirit is coming soon, so you have to farm the candles in all six realms now.

Prairie is a good start for candle running. The traveling spirit is coming soon, so you have to farm the candles in all six realms now. You check your pouch and count your candles.

Yep.

Yep. Pretty much empty.

Returning back to the beautiful scenery ahead, you start to run and begin to soar through the clouds.

Returning back to the beautiful scenery ahead, you start to run and begin to soar through the clouds. Let's enjoy the run, for now, you think to yourself, or I might tire myself out.

So you soared

So you soared, flew

So you soared, flew, skipped

So you soared, flew, skipped and jumped around Prairie

So you soared, flew, skipped and jumped around Prairie, and collected all the candles in the area.

So you soared, flew, skipped and jumped around Prairie, and collected all the candles in the area. As you get closer to the 8 puzzle platform, anticipation builds within you.

Getting candles from this place is the most exciting of all!

Getting candles from this place is the most exciting of all! Oh, look! 8 people! Hooray!

As the platform goes up and up and up, you remember about a certain creature hidden away in this certain place.

As the platform goes up and up and up, you remember about a certain creature hidden away in this certain place. It's been a while, maybe I can check up on the little guy.

So you flew up and up and up, until you reached the hill with the summoning stone laying still surrounded by butterflies, just as it always is.

Oh

Oh, people!

Oh, people! That's good!

Oh, people! That's good! You honk as you prepare for the ritual, calling for the others to join you.

Wait, no! Come back! ...

Wait, no! Come back! ... But they left as quickly as they came.

You knelt and cried as everyone left. Everyone except one. They came closer to you and blew kisses, comforting you and wow-

You knelt and cried as everyone left. Everyone except one. They came closer to you and blew kisses, comforting you and wow- that really did make you feel better.

You stood up from your position on the ground and took out a candle. They lit you up!

Kisses and bows were exchanged. You feel better now, but you still want to see the four-legged fluffball that dwells in the stone.

All thoughts of candle running are forgotten as you were determined. So you sat and stayed by the stone with the kind person.

A few minutes passed, and oh!

A few minutes passed, and oh! I hear music!

A few minutes passed, and oh! I hear music! Kind person is playing music!

A few minutes passed, and oh! I hear music! Kind person is playing music! I have my piano with me!

And so the two of you exchanged music together as you waited for more people to come.

Several song exchanges later, with claps and kisses in between, finally! People are coming! The two of you honked and called for them, holding out butterflies in hopes that these people would stay.

Six people!

Six people! We just need one more!

But as time passes by, no matter how long all six of you wait, the last person is nowhere to be seen. Until what felt like hours of waiting, one by one, the people that came by all left. It was only you and the kind person that stayed.

You saw them sit down, and decided to join them. The scene is relaxing, although a bit lonely, but this person is still here, so you're not alone.

You sat beside them, and as time passed with not a single skykid in sight, you began to nod off.

A soft honk woke you up. You were leaning on something. Waking up confused, your mind muddled from sleep forgot where you were for a second. Another soft honk cleared your mind entirely.

You accidentally slept on their shoulder!

You accidentally slept on their shoulder! Oh no!

This is embarrassing, you thought to yourself as you quickly got up and bowed for forgiveness.

This is embarrassing, you thought to yourself as you quickly got up and bowed for forgiveness. I'm sorry!

This is embarrassing, you thought to yourself as you quickly got up and bowed for forgiveness. I'm sorry! I didn't mean to!

The sound of laughter is heard, and you look up to see them laughing and blowing kisses. Ah, they're not angry, you sighed. That's a relief.

Oh, they're waving. Are you... Do you need to go now?

The kind person kept waving and waving, bowing for extra measure, in case the message wasn't clear.

No- wait! Um... Let's be friends!

You frantically grabbed a white candle from your pouch. Quickly getting on one knee, you hurriedly presented it to them. But...

Will they accept it? Too many times you have experienced people not accepting your candles or people you have friended, yet never seen since those fateful encounters. What if they...

Will they accept it? Too many times you have experienced people not accepting your candles or people you have friended, yet never seen since those fateful encounters. What if they... !!!

Joy spreads throughout your body, a rush of happiness overwhelms you. You watched as the candles slowly disintegrated into sparkles and flew directly into the palms of your new friend.

They... They accepted your candle! Oh, what joy! Oh, I'm so happy!

You might have forgotten and abandoned your candle run on your failed quest to summon the creature of the hill

You might have forgotten and abandoned your candle run on your failed quest to summon the creature of the hill, but at least you gained a solicitous* friend.

FIN.

A/N *solicitous | adj given to or made with heedful anticipation of the needs and happiness of others SYN: attentive, kind, considerate, thoughtful (Merriam-Webster)
