They were at Marsu Valley in what felt like moments. They landed in her fields, which looked to be plowed. Evelyn wondered at this, as she walked home. Leisian turned human and walked with her. Once out of the fields, they went to Mr. Crafter’s home, where everyone was enjoying dinner. Sarah was very happy to see her daughter.
