A Marriage Blessed by the Sun – Page 4

Onlookers wanting to see the couple and attend the celebration approached. A few spiders wanted to help and began weaving webs to decorate the bridal path, telling the bride she could use them later to build her nest. "Oh, it's going to be beautiful!" babbled the finch with a cape and throat as red as cayenne pepper. "The best and most beautiful things for a beautiful bride and a handsome groom. The most beautiful." All of a sudden he stopped: Dzunuume and his bride were not beautiful, not at all. Their feathers were dull, dreary grey. No pretty colours at all. The finch looked at the other birds nearby: "something has to be done to make these two little grey birds beautiful."
