The tired old woman climbed the steep hill where she had come many times as a child to play with her strange little friends. She stopped to catch her breath and to listen for the happy drums and singing that she had not heard for so many years.

It was forbidden for adults to seek the village of the Yunwi Tsunsdi. As a small child, the Little People had been great playmates. They looked like adults but were tiny like she was back then. They were well shaped and handsome with long hair reaching to the ground.
