|A day in the life of a tree-elf|
Albert the Tree-Elf The branch wiggled as Albert yawned after a peaceful night sleep. The sun kept his eyes from opening completely at first, but in time they opened and showed him the wonderful day ahead. Spring was in the air and Albert had lots of exploring to do in the new growth that surrounded him. He jumped from tree to tree as he lived in a dense forest area. Albert came across a large bird nest with several eggs in it. He peeked over the top and touched one with his small hands. A large bird swooped from the sky and buzzed his head. The mother bird didn't want Albert close to the nest and he quickly left. He knew better than to get to close to the mother's eggs, but his curiosity always brought him back. As he jumped from an Oak Tree to a Pine Tree, Albert noticed an egg stuck between two branches. He climbed down to it and looked above and saw a nest much higher in the tree. He thought it must have fallen from the nest and the Mother bird would not be able to find it. Somehow he must find a way to put in back into the nest, but it was too large for him to carry. Albert swung from tree to tree to Jason's tree. Jason was the wise old elf who always had the answer to problems. Albert explained the problem to Jason. Jason went into his small house and found some rope for Albert. He explained to Albert on what to do. Albert thanked him and quickly went back to the tree with the egg. The egg was starting to shake a little. Albert knew it was getting ready to hatch and he had better hurry. Quickly he tied the rope around the egg and took the other end of the rope and climbed to a branch above the nest and swung it over the branch. He grabbed the end and as he went down the egg went up. As he slowly was going down he passed the egg going up and saw a small beak poking its way out. Albert finally reached the branch where the egg was and looked above. The egg was a little above the nest and he slowly lowered it into the nest. The mother bird flew into the nest and looked down at Albert and appeared to wink at him, as if to say thank you. As Albert swung to another tree, he heard the sound of a healthy chirping baby bird. Tweet
