As the dark closed in, and the golden-red sun slowly set, Evanthe moved in closer to the tree. The fire crackled as a log fell and embers flew up into the sky, twinkling like the emerging stars. Evanthe pulled her black plaid shirt tighter around her. She sighed and shivered slightly. "Thank you so much for inviting me Kavon. You really have no idea how much I appreciate it."
I smiled as I answered, "No prob. I'm glad you could come!" We sat in contented silence as the others laughed and talked around the campsite.
"Wow! The stars are so bright! I've never seen stars so bright."
Evanthe laughed. "That's because you live in the city. The pollution and lights block the most of the stars from view."
"No, I'm serious. Look at them!"
