Cherry said she was seventy years old and had never been to the Feywilds, and Tinypaw couldn't blame her because really, it wasn't the greatest place for a mortal to just go visiting. Well, maybe like a quick visit but it was just so easy for them to get trapped, and then it was just a debacle waiting to happen. After all, the food in the feywilds really was delicious, so he didn't blame them all for trying to eat it. Cherry said that there were lots of people who didn't think the feywilds were real, and Tinypaw figured that was just as well for them. And for the fairies, really. She said she would love to go there someday and he wasn't really sure how to respond. He could invite her back to visit, if she could help him with this bear. It would be a decent reward, and then he could tell her to leave before she ate anything or messed anything up. Maybe she could use the visit to make him an outfit, and she would see him at his normal height. It might be easier for her to make clothes for him then, compared to super tiny like he was now.
Cherry asked if the bird was really necessary, and offered her services if he couldn't find one. He smiled at the offer. "That's a real nice offer Miss Cherry, but if I'm gonna get close enough to this bear to do much good it'll sure help to be on the back of a quick bird. I don't want to put you in the path of a hungry, angry bear. But here, I can call some birds out of hiding and then I'll be good to go." He whistled a little tune and after a few moments a bird call or two could be heard from nearby, and then a few more until a small handful of birds had flown out and alighted on branches nearby. "You'll do, little sparrow," he called to one bird in particular, and he waved his hand in a 'come here' kind of motion. The bird hopped back and forth on the branch for a second before flitting down and landing tentatively on the side of Cherry's hand, her little eyes focused on Tinypaw who raised a hand and placed it gently to pat the bird's head. "Good girl," he said, then turned to Cherry and gave her a little thumbs up.
He reached into the pouch on his belt and pulled the saddle from it. The saddle was too big to fit in a normal pouch of course, but luckily for Tinypaw his pouch was the kind that was much larger on the inside, and it could hold just about whatever he could stuff in it. He gently placed the saddle on the back of the bird and did up a few buckles with the ease of someone who had done it many times before, then placed the little bit in its beak and hopped on. Taking the reigns in his paws he said "Up," and the bird hopped into the air, flying around Cherry's head a few times before settling into slowly moving in the direction of the town. "Alright, I think we're good to go! Let's go find an angry bear!"
