Red Panda/American Eskimo Dog
Treehollow, Silver Sage
Terra (wife), Marie (daughter)
In the soft glow of candlelight, the small cottage looked particularly cozy that Winter evening. Maya adjusted the azalea plant in the center of the dinner table as the smell of freshly roasted vegetables filled the room, making her mouth water. She had spent all evening making sure everything was perfect.
She glanced at the clock on the wall, knowing they should be here any moment. Terra had had a long day of work today, and Maya was determined that she come home to rest and respite. As she checked to make sure everything was in its proper place one more time, the red panda-dog heard the front door open, and her face brightened as she looked up to see her wife and daughter entering the warmth of the living room.
“Hi, mum! That smells amazing!” As Marie rushed into her arms and Terra gave her a loving, grateful smile, the gardener felt a rush of joy. When her family was near, it was as though the warmth of the hearth was alive within her very heart.
