Dancing #16

by

The source of gaiety was somewhere within the forest, it seemed, and we followed the sounds with enthusiasm. As we persevered through hindering trees and undergrowth that threatened to trip us at every step, the rain fell heavier and the noise of raindrops on the leafy tegument above sometimes obscured the sounds of revelry.
But then, just as I feared we had been walking blindly in circles beneath the dripping canopy, my new comrade spotted a light in the distance.
Closer inspection proved it to be the open doorway of an inn. There could be no more welcome a sight!

    Yes, indeed I do agree with the last line! (I also love, and understand, the concept of hindering trees)

    Must check out ‘tegument’ immediately!
