The tunnel extended. It passed ten feet under the house, through the courtyard, where Mutti had ordered a greenhouse to be built for his prized ferns, and ended at a small hill the locals called Steinbruch. Twynn was two hundred years old, a sage in the full potency of his priestly exercise among "The Children of the Great Blue Camellia", a branch of the gnome species that has kept alive its language, and its function of safeguarding plants, since the time of the first earthly flower buds.
This was the perfect story to read before I go to sleep. If I"m lucky, those lovely gnomes will visit me in my dreams.
(A great interpretation of the prompt, also!)

I feel embarrassed inside. I acted like some superhero but I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to do so. Perhaps she caught me there, forcing myself to be a strong guy. She smiles at me silently and then she giggles. -@mrnightmare.net

“Where are we going?” Myra shouted into the frigid wind that enveloped her as they pounded across the snow and ice, her inquiry swallowed by the frosted roar. Myra clutched Kolar’s dense fur and flattened herself against the bear. The tips of Kolar’s fur lightened to a blue so pale that it was almost as white as the snow whirling around them.

We noticed how different we were from the rest of our people but we have been told it's nothing. Nature delights in variety, that's why we look different. They say. My friends and I at the age of forty-six knew better. We felt knitted in body, soul and spirit. Could that be the cause of the dreams?
Many people, especially young people, think dreams are made for youth. No! We dream all our lives. And we can reach for those dreams until our lives are spent. I really like that you acknowledge this truth.
