Reports from the valley in the northern hills have made clear that it’s harvest time. “Looks like it’s time to harvest,” said area man Hector Clay as the autumn winds blew in and the valley turned a dusky shade of red. “Seems to be an ample crop this year. Yes, this will tide us over nicely. Hope it won’t be too much of a fuss this go around, like it was last time. Hope it’s a smooth, clean harvest, no mess, no trouble. That would be grand, yes.” Later that day, a steady plume of smoke was seen rising from the valley and dissolving in the quiet air.
