11. Epilogue



Year 9

They stood on the top of the hill near where they had all lived before the fire. It was late spring and it was time to say goodbye to more of his family he would never see again. He was tired, the trip up the hill had exhausted him. Galin with Charlene and their little male fawn Gerro. Koren with Garla and their doe fawn Wena, and Garten with Young Faline and their male fawn Striko.  Off in the distance he could see the large open fiends and the forest  in the distance where they would live out the rest of their lives.

The lesser light had just rose giving light to the open area.

"We will follow the stream that goes from my forest to here," Galin said to them. "It should not take more than two days."

"Go quickly and quietly," Bambi said. "Empty your waste in the stream, less chance predators will smell you." 

"I shall miss all of you," Stabo said. "I wish you well with your herd. You are ready now and I know you will be good herd leaders."

"Only because of what you, Bambi and Stranger taught us," Charlene said. "With that she went up and kissed her mother and father goodbye.

"Thank you for your help," Galin said to both Bambi and him.

"Pass on what you have learned," he told them.

Galin looked at his new son and smiled. "When the time comes, I will teach him. That I promise you."

"Now go," Bambi told them. You have a long trip to make."

With that the six of them left. Only Galene would remain with Young Bambi and their new doe fawn Jena. " Goodbye my brothers and sister," she said as they walk out onto the open grassy meadow.

Like him, they knew they most likely would not see each other again. He felt sorry about losing his children and the rest of his family. He knew he would not have worry about it for much longer. Still the bear had been right all those seasons before. Not only did the best in them continue, it would now spread to other forests.

"I hope they do well," Faline said watching them go.

"They will do the best they can. Of that I am sure," Bambi told them.

He could not have said it better.
