Chapter one ~ it's rather short
When Echo was six she met Evelyne. Echo had been playing in the forest whan a large brown owl had flown into the clearing she was in. The owl had barely rested onto a tree branch when she was followed by a six year old girl. She had wild hair the color of trees in autumn that reached her ankles and had leaves in it. Her eyes were a dark brown and she had several freckles across her nose "Gaea, where did you go off to?" The owl hooted and Evelyne realized that Echo was there. Evelyne stared at at her for a couple seconds in shock, taking in who she was looking at. She then glared at Gaea (the owl) accusingly as if she had planned this. (which she in fact had) She turned back to Echo, who smiled. "HI! I'm Echo, What's your name?" Evelyne stared at Echo, she had never met someone so cheerful. "E- e -Evelyne." She stuttered. "Your name is Beeeautifuul" Echo replied Cheerfully, stretching out the word beautiful. "This is Cleo" Echo pointed at the octopus (who obviously goes by Cleo) "This is Gaea." Evelyne said rather slowly and then pointed at the owl. "Do you wanna play with me?" Echo said bouncily with a smile. "Okay." Evelyne said hesitantly. "Don't worry, I don't bite!" Echo giggled.
And that was the start of their extremely long friendship.
