After a long and chilly journey, I longed for someplace to prop up my tired and aching feet, something hot to eat and a fire to warm up by. To my surprise, that’s just what I stumbled upon, and not a moment too soon! Pondering how a beach could be so cold, I walked up to the placard of this house that gave off a warm glow and was astonished at the irony of the situation. “Luna Snowfox, Mist, Ward 5, Plot 51” Here I was, in desperate need of warmth, and I was about to knock on the door belonging to someone with “Snow” in her name! Despite this thought, I proceeded to knock and was greeted and welcomed in by the very hospitable Luna.
She must have noted the shivers, or perhaps saw my blue lips as she immediately wrapped me in a blanket and had her cook fix me a delicious, steaming bowl of pumpkin soup, telling me to make myself at home for as long as I needed. I sat and ate the pumpkin soup in a cozy little dining area, which was lit by candles, soft lanterns and the sun sneaking in through the window.
As the chills slowly subsided, I wandered over to the quaint fireplace and curled up on the comfy little cushions. I was provided spirits, which, combined with the gentle heat from the fire, immediately warmed me to the soul and I was finally able to wander around.
As I headed downstairs, I noted a bar area and happily requested a refill! While my drink was being prepared, something caught the corner of my eye so I set off to investigate once my drink was in hand. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself in front of a hot tub!
Though I was no longer shivering, the thought of passing up a perfectly good chance to dip into the steaming water chilled my heart, so I gingerly hopped right in and settled down, sipping my drink whilst relaxing and daydreaming. There were even snacks there waiting to be enjoyed! I must have dozed off for a bit because next thing I knew I was waking up, all shriveled up like a raisin!
Shaking my head at myself for such a silly mistake, I walked away only to find myself surrounded by books! Moving from shelf to shelf, I examined with awe the vast assortment of novels that Luna had managed to collect. Managing to find one that caught my attention, I carefully slid it off of the shelf and curled up in front of the fireplace on an amazingly comfortable couch and read the night away before falling asleep and dreaming of my next great adventure!
