The Aspiring Author’s Tale
The cool autumn wind gusted through as the travelers continued their journey. The weary wanderers decided to take a rest and have a meal. As the group sat in silence, the Aspiring Author stood up.
“I volunteer to tell a tale while we rest. I will tell a tale; a tale of adventure, bravery and unity, so sit near and listen closely,” the Aspiring Author declared.

They wore armor to protect them, and had brave hearts ready for battle. They started their march into the WIllowlands, and when they finally reached their destination; they stood brave in the face of danger.
Creatures gathered around them, and Clare proved to them the truth of the Emperor Turtle. Emperor Turtle was sent to be judged by the Order, and the animals took foxes in as beloved allies.
