Eventually Hungry's stomach began to growl and he realized that he had left without taking any food with him. Soon the growling became so loud that even the birds that normally would be chirping in the trees fell silent when he walked by - being afraid that he might decide to eat them. When Hungry realized this all he could do was growl something like 'stupid birds' and keep up his search for Meen (or lunch - whichever he found first). It was at this time a 'bird' did see him and landed unaware to the Dragon on a branch several feet above Hungry's head.
Meanwhile, on the ground below, Hungry was still looking for someone to play with. He was finding that skipping class was only fun if you had someone else to spend that time with. All alone and just wandering around in the woods was turning pretty dull to say the least. "I wish... oops... I should not use those words," the Wish Dragon reminded himself. "I wonder where Meen (pronounced 'min') could be?" he muttered. Hungry had already checked the toad pond, the mushroom grove, and even The Wishing Well, but still no Meen. He had thought about playing 'knock, knock games' with the well, but most of the jokes the well used didn't make any sense to him.
It was Rave who was wondering how to keep the Wish Dragon there so it could tell its master, Hir'aeth, the Gooblin King, that it had found him. As Rave landed it heard a loud growling noise and realized that the sound was the Wish Dragon's stomach. Deciding that this might be the opportunity it was looking for cleared it's throat and said, "It sounds like you are hungry and if you eat birds I will let you know I am not very tasty."
Startled to hear someone talking to him, Hungry looked around but did not see anyone. "Who said that?" he asked, "And I don't eat birds! I prefer something much sweeter like the pastries from the Sugar Plum bakery would be nice..."
Deciding it was safe and that Hungry was indeed hungry, Rave quickly made up it's mind and decided to lead the Wish Dragon to a place that would keep him busy for a while. "Long enough for the King to arrive," hoped the minion. "If you will follow me, I can take you to a tree that has a large honey hive in it," Rave told the Dragon. "They are friends of mine and if you are nice to them and because you have small wings like them, they will share some of their honey with you."
"Oh, that sounds delicious!" sighed Hungry. "Lead the way! By the way, my name is Hungry."
"I am called Rave," answered the mechanical bird before it leapt from the branch and started flying to the honey tree so the Wish Dragon could follow. "With the tree being close to Hir'aeth's kingdom, I should be able to leave Hungry at the tree, get the Troll King and return before the Dragon even knows I have left," Rave chuckled. "Especially as hungry (which made Rave chuckle even more at the thought of Hungry being hungry) as he seems."
