Crystal adored the lilacs, and she saw Bjorn with different eyes.....how could he have known!!!
She wondered if she should set him a test to see how much he really cared for her.
This test was both simple and complex.
But he was ready to show how much he cared about Chrystal.
And so, after telling him that she would shortly return, Crystal retreated to the depths of her beloved forest to be at one with the fauna and flora she could so easily commune with.
She loved it in the woods.(wanted to say more but it's only one sentence)
Was at one with nature, she turned to pick up her grandmother's guitar, but her outstretched hand met nothing!
Looking about; she could see it nowhere, but was met by the gaze of fellow forest dwellers whose wee eyes were filled with fear.
(I'm leaving for work soon, and will not return to this blossoming plot 'till much later!!)
They knew how much Crystal valued her Grandmother's guitar, but where had it gone?
Crystal had closed her eyes out of sheer frustration, but when she reopened; them the direct unblinking stare of the legendary mystical tree dweller told her, with certainty, what needed to be done.
She called out, Bjorn, where are you?
Bjorn was waiting for her at the gypsy camp where she left him and couldn't hear her.
.... the tree dweller touched her mind with these words, "Bjorn, your beloved, is is with your people and cannot hear you, but my voice will will be yours, and he will know".
Sobbing, Crystal ran back to the gypsy camp and flung herself into Bjorn's arms, 'please help me', she cried.
"Who ARE you?" exclaimed Bjorn.
Crystal, red faced with embarrassment exclaimed, "ooops sorry, you look like another Bjorn I know", and proceeded to begin searching again for her real beloved.
She searched high and low and still could not find him!
So a tearful Crystal decided to return to the gypsy camp and to her surprise there stood on the outer rings of the glowing camp fire, her beloved Bjorn and his presumed dead brother Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo (Perry for short).
She wiped her tears, and said "I always hated your name, brother."
But was truly confused as she had been present when Nima performed CPR, and was there also to see him buried weeks ago....what is going on....was she losing her mind?
