'How was what? Oh, you mean last night? Simply divine,'murmured Sara and smiled.
'Shhh!' said the woman behind the desk quietly and held her index finger to her lips.
'Oh, we're sorry', Charlotte whispered, 'Sara, why are we here?'
'We are looking for a book about...'
'Shhh!' said the librarian and pointed to a sign that said: 'No talking in the Reading Room.'
'...a book about unusual sightings in the deep forests.' whispered Sara.
'UFOs?' asked Charlotte, 'Why would you want to read a book like that?'
'Not UFOs, the little people with wings, pixies, faeries.'
'Shhh!' said the grey-haired woman.
'Oh dear. Isn't there someplace we could talk?' whispered Sara as she pointed toward one of several smaller rooms along one side of the great reading-hall. 'Could we use one of those rooms to talk?' she asked the woman seated behind the desk.
The librarian made a sign for her to come closer, 'No, those study-cells must be booked in advanced.'
'Could we book one now?' asked Sara.
'No, I'm sorry but there are none available, right now.'
'But they're all empty.' protested Sara, raising her voice slightly.
'Shhh!' whispered the librarian zipping her lips with her thumb and index finger.
'Let's just go.' said Charlotte.
'Yes, but I really need to find that book.'
'Then we can't talk.
'Shhh!' said the librarian and continued to stare at them. They walked away from her desk toward the exit.
'So you had a good time last night; where did you go; what did you do?' whispered Charlotte.
'We went out to eat at a restaurant,' whispered Sara and in an even smaller voice, 'He proposed'.
'What did you say?' asked Charlotte in an almost normal voice.
'I said, HE ASKED ME TO MARRY HIM' said Sara in a strong voice, just before they reached the exit doors.
'SHHHH!' shouted the librarian.
'What was your answer?' inquired Charlotte in a loud voice.
'Yes!' bellowed Sara as they ran out the doors and down the long stairway toward the street entrance, 'I SAID YES!'
'Aurora!' whispered the voice again when her basket was two-thirds full.
'Do I know you?' she murmured softly as she filled the basket to the brim and was ready to fly away.
'Please don't go. It's me, Petrus', whispered the voice that Aurora now recognised.
'What are you doing out here in the forest? I must return. Esmarelda will think I am taking too long to get back to the basket.'
'Please, Aurora, come closer', murmured Petrus as he hovered over the bilberry plants.
'Well, alright. Let me just put down my basket', said Aurora softly, putting her basket on the ground and flying up to Petrus. 'What do you want?'
'A kiss. Just a kiss,' whispered Petrus as he held Aurora's face in his hands and slowly pressed his lips against hers.
'Oh, Petrus!' said Aurora between kisses.
'Aurora, Aurora! I love you so much! Please say yes!'
'Say yes to what?'
'Petrus! What will father say?'
'I hope he will give us his blessings!'
'You must go now. Esmarelda and Rosanna mustn't know yet. Meet me at my father's house tonight.
Sometime earlier, while Aurora was talking with Petrus, Rosanna was filling her basket when she heard whispers. She saw Petrus kissing Aurora. Tears filled Rosanna's eyes. She loved Petrus. Now she hated Aurora. What should she do?
