couldn't wait to tell him of all these adventures. What would be Xedna's response? Maybe he

would be able to solve some of these mysteries. Xedna listened very carefully to all the details.

Then after much thought Xedna said in excitement, "I figured it all out! I almost forgot this myth

I had heard from my grandmother. Luckily I was still able to recall it. She used to say that there
