On a very warm, muddy day in the forest of Nowhere, Rachel Springfoot bounded through the trees on her quick feet. She ran as fast as she could on top of the thick layer of moss that covered the forest floor. She sprinted past her favorite climbing tree, her many braids, large and small, streaming out behind her.
