Rolly had given away his wish but he did gain a gift. Every night he would fall

into a happy sleep thinking of the little Star and her friends in the sky.

“Maybe there is a way,” said Rolly and he reached in his pocket and

bought out the wish.

Rolly softly blew on the wish and sent the little Star back to her place

in the sky.

“People have seen me, really seen me!” said the little Star.

Rolly smiled, “Yes they really liked you.”

“But now I would really like to get back to the sky,” sighed the little Star.

“Can’t you fly?” asked Rolly.

“No,” said the Star looking very sad.

We were small, but if I gave the Star a lift she would be tall enough to see.

And she was.

And she blazed bright and all the people saw her.

And having seen they cheered such a pretty, pretty light.

“That was wonderful,” said the Star, “People have seen me, really seen me!”

“Just the Sun,” I said.

“Its far too bright for me,” said the Star in alarm, “I will fade away.”

I held the Star close, “Its okay your safe in my shadow.”

The Mountain did not reply. It gave one big heave and all the rocks and stuff that had not fallen off, fell off. And then there stood a rather large Dinosaur.
I think this Dinosaur had been asleep in the Mountain for a long long time.

I was wishing the Mountain a good night’s sleep when it started to shake. Then it started to crack. Then lots of rocks and stuff fell off.
“Oh poor Mountain,” I said, “are you ill?”

The Mountain is a great listener. I talk to it for hours and it never interrups or says I am being silly. I think the Mountain likes having an intelligent conversation, I don’t think anyone has talked to the Mountain for a zillion years.

She and she are chasing, animals fleeing, while I rest sublime with my book. The Mountain sits quite solidly, it never, ever runs from me, it is my friend why would it?

In fact the Mountain never moves at all, it never runs off, or chases things like other pets.

Trying to take a Mountain for a walk is not so easy. Mountains can be very stubborn when it comes to going on walks.

I say the Mountain cannot do tricks but it can do one really great trick, it can stop storms.
I think a cat would find it difficult to stop a storm.

The Mountain will stop storms, that’s a trick no other pet can do. Well most other pets are not as big as the Mountain.
