So didja catch that we never mentioned November's full moon last month? Welp, strange things did happen, but we weren't at liberty to speak of such things until they were done and done, so we just let it slip and hoped no one would ask. Kudos to you for not gettin' too curious.
Anywho, now that's what's done is done--Silkworm was chosen by the moon to be part of Team Plan B for a top secret mission which we're still not allowed to blab about, but rest assured all the stars are nicely aligned and there's no need to panic anymore. He spent November training for the mission, which pretty much means I slept alone every night while he was awake on the moon doing whatever magical stuffed bears do with minimal gravity and what not.
There was surprisingly not much to talk about every morning when he returned, though I am quite jealous about one thing: he learned how to fly. Unfortunately, exhilarating as it is, he has to dip into his own magic and use it like gasoline, and although it replenishes, flying leaves him thoroughly exhausted, stiff, and mute. Supposedly he can train himself to use his resources more sparingly and therefore efficiently, like how a bear slows its heartbeat and breathing in winter to hibernate, but as of right now, he's mostly grounded.
Graciously, as a treat for his participation, the moon allowed Silkworm immunity from moon sickness throughout December, thus we have nothing to report back about December's full moon yesterday morning. Actually, we had a lovely night's sleep Friday night into Saturday morning. Both of us are wishing Silkworm would be given more opportunities like this, if only for the benefits that come with them. In the meantime, I think we'll be researching magical flying techniques. Do you think they have books on that kind of thing at the library?
