Sylvie gave a long sign. She knew the wild bird’s secret now. Slowly, she began her dangerous trip down the ancient 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 why to find the heron’s nest.

As Sylvie climbed slowly down the pine tree, the stranger was waking up back at 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 the young man her grandmother stood up as she came into the kitchen. The splendid moment to speak her secret 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 Sylvie’s own dark grey 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 sun rising together from the top of the world. Sylvie could not speak. She could not tell the heron’s secret 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 resort and she came home with her grandmother’s cow. Were the birds better friends than the hunter might have been, who could know?
