Story 4

Sylvie gave a long sigh. She knew the while birds secret now.

Slowly she began her dangerous trip down / pine tree. She did not dare to look down and tried to forget that her fingers hurt and her feet were bleeding. All she wanted to think about was what the stranger would say to her when she told him where to find the heron's nest.

As Sylvia climbed slowly down the pine tree, the stranger was wakening up, back to the farm. He was smiling because he was sure from the way the shy little girl had looked at him that she had seen the white heron.

About an hour later Sylvie appeared. Both her grandmother and young man stood up as she came into the kitchen. The splendid moment to speak about her secrete had come. But Sylvie was silent. Her grandmother was angry with her. "Where has she been?" The young man's kind eyes looked deeply into Sylvia's own dark gray ones. He could give Sylvie and her grandmother ten dollars. He had promised to do this. And they needed the money. Besides Sylvie wanted to make him happy.

But Sylvie was silent. She remembered how the white heron came flying through the golden air. And how they watched the sunrise together from the top of the world.

Sylvie could not speak, she could not tell the heron secrete and give its life away. The young man went away disappointed later that day. Sylvie was sad. She wanted to be his friend. He never returned. But many nights Sylvie heard the sound of his whistle as she came home with her grandmother's cow.

With birds, better friends, than their hunter might if been who can know.
