It’s the day after the last book news, and you see Xiaolong setting up ‘The Pond Book News’ stall again.
“Hi friend!” she greets, giving you a big energetic wave with her small arms. “The newest issue of The Pond Book News isn’t quite ready yet. You have to come tomorrow!”
You shake your head, and tell her that you aren’t here for the news. Rather, you’re visiting today to check up on Xiaolong and how she’s going.
“Oh.” Your question gives her pause. “Well, to be honest friend, I’m hoping you can help me.” She comes around from the book news stall, and leads you by the Pond to your favourite spot. “Friend, I know I asked you before, but do you know any other magical beings who might want to call the Pond a home? I’m happy for Stella now that she’s off on her new adventures, but I’m hoping we could find another friend to fill her in.”
You think for a moment. You’re not quite sure. But, like last time, you feel determined to help Xiaolong out again. It’s time to find the Pond’s newest friend!
