the sun rose slowly in the autumn sky as the raccoons readied themselves for their big day. For today, they would greet the forest, and walk upon the earth!
"Let's show them some of our favorite things!"
all too soon the sun began to set as the animals tired out. hours passed, and then the most amazing light show commenced.
just when they thought that the night sky couldn't get any lovelier******
the raccoons first night out was wondrous indeed. and eventually their eyes closed, as they all slept together, their hearts beating as one*
