My name is Amber. I have always lived in The Forest, forever. I love it here, with the branches always overhead, unless I sit on the top, looking over the domain that I oversee. I am not ruler, but merely a part of this forest. However, lately I have felt others around. Creatures coming close, interrupting my calm life.
One day, I awoke to the sound of plants rustling, far far away. I quietly climbed a tree, and looked out over the forest. A crowd of birds flew into the air, cawing and screaming. Rough, strained voices came to me, and I climbed down so I could meet these outsiders.
One or more of them were coming my way, so I waited.
