Arrival

Out in the vast fields of District Thirty Six, one of the many farm districts set on the changeling lands, Kim Lone pushed hard with her hooves to drag her old toy box out of her home. She looked around her porch, seeing her mother sitting on a chair by the edge. “Hi Mom...” she called out.
