Let’s listen in …
Perhaps I’ll hide, he thought, and see who comes to greet me.
Perhaps you will, she thought. And perhaps I will as well.
She walked over to the chess board and moved a white pawn forward.
Perhaps we’ll play a little game.
Maybe whoever lives here has gone away, and may not be back soon.
If that were true, she thought, watching him, what would you do?
He stood, turned toward the room, and walked slowly back to the food table. He turned, poured a full mug, and tried a sip.
“Good. Sweet water.”
Glad you like it.
I’ll need a place to sleep, while I wait for them.
He looked around and found a deep, plush, red couch in a far corner. He sat down on it, and sighed. “Nice. I hope they don’t mind if I sleep here.” He stretched out. She waited.
After a few minutes he stood up and looked around. He walked over to the waterfall and reached out to it, putting his hand into the spray.
Why doesn’t it come into the room? Is there a spell?
I thought you’d never ask.
“If there’s a spell …”
Then this is a sorcerer’s house.
Then they might be invisible.
Yes, they might.
He looked around. And they might be listening to my thoughts.
Yes, they might, she laughed silently.
He disappeared from sight, and his thoughts suddenly went silent.
Nicely done, she thought. But he did not teach you everything, I’ll wager. Not yet.
His silhouette appeared as a thin blue outline. He wandered around the room and stopped in front of the chess board.
“This pawn wasn’t here.”
He looked around. No one appeared.
He turned back to the board and moved an opposing pawn out of its row, and smiled. “I think I’ll get some sleep.”
An owl hooted a response from the trees outside.
