They walked to the edge of the wood in which the city of the night was hidden. The silver moon shone in the sky like always. They would have to be quicker than usual tonight, for it was the Summer Solstice, the shortest night. They quickly crossed the fields that Luna had been sat in the night before, and walked towards the town they had been assigned for the solstice. Suddenly, Estelle saw a shadow in a nearby field. Luna saw it too.

'What's that?' said Estelle.

'Looks like a Dawn Shadow,' replied Luna.

'How can a Dawn Shadow be out at night? It's not their realm, day is.'

'It's the Solstice. It's not surprising,' said Luna. Wrapping her fingers round the handle of her blade, she added, 'Besides, that's what we're here for'

The End
