..and now it is night and we walk the bounds of the village, as we do every night, clockwise as withershines brings all kinds of things. The moon is bright, no veil of silk covers her light tonight and the sky a deep blue. Tonight Kiffer walks too for the first time with us through the moonlight, and races ahead and leaps onto walls. For the first time Kiffer sees his shadow, his moonshadow, belonging only to him. No light obscures the shadow cat as it walks with him.
Stars shine and all is good.
