The Eleven Plainswalkers now walk through Hexnose Forest. This forest is laden with a mass of very strange and complicated in-growth trees everywhere. Between the branches of these trees, there are strange suspended substances. They possess a bubble-like shape and have a reflective surface, almost akin to a mirror. Little Weaver peers into one of these whilst wandering about.

Meanwhile, Little Stub-tail tugs on the cloth of Little Black-ears after growing increasingly afraid. As their collective concerns mount and grow, something unknown appears and goes away soon above and overhead of Ekay and Pekk after instantaneously being reflected on the mirror-like bubbles.

Little Black-Ears, meanwhile, offers Little Stub-tail words of encouragement and a reminder that they have passed through Hexnose forest many times beforehand without anything going awry.
