Part 28: Cold Partners

Away from the clearing, Piglet and Clover walked in silence.  In the distance the faint sound of heffalumps crying out in anger could still be heard.  The lizard was gone for now.  Clover held the tail over her shoulder while biting her lip.  Walking behind Clover, Piglet took out his pipe and started searching his pockets for a match.  Looking to Clover’s stoic walk, he placed his pipe back under his coat.

“A Thesaurus”  Piglet said, breaking the silence.

“What?” Clover didn’t turn to look at him.

“The lizard, it’s a Thesaurus.  A black lizard that lurks in the hundred acre kingdom.  There aren’t many, but the ones that exist have been known to stalk Piglet campings.  There were two that would sneak into my village-”

“Never leave your partner behind!”  Clover shouted back.

Piglet stopped walking for a moment and took a deep breath.

“Forgive me, I should have come to your aid as soon as you called.”

Clover stopped walking for a moment and looked ahead.  The cold in the air had gone down since she took the tail.  The snow had stopped and a faint air blew between them.

“It’s fine.”  Clover looked back to Piglet.  “Just remember, we travel together so we can help each other.”

They continued walking together.  A chill in the air remained with them as they made their way back to the Eeyore.
