I am such a doofus! Yesterday, I went on and on about weird flowers. But I forgot to mention the important one!
Y'see, I was walking around, shivery and tired even though I was wearing my swanky coat. And, pokin out of the snow, there was something blue, and it looked like shaped ice. It looked incredibly pretty, and incredibly tasty. I nibbled it right up.
Now, these other plants, I don't eat them often, and when I do, it is mostly for fun. A little mischief on my part, if you will. This new thing? It is amazing. I eat it twice a day, deliberately hunting it down.
Maxwell called it Shiverthorn.
When I eat it, my fur stands on end, as if it were coated in ice. Maxwell tried petting me right after eating some, and pricked a finger. I kissed it better~ That bit wears off after a few minutes, it's the other effect I love.
I no longer feel cold. In fact, when Max felt my temperature, I apparently was pleasantly cool, rather than being the little ball of warmth I usually am. Maxwell looked concerned, but I am sure it is fine.
Anyway, it only lasts half a day, and then I need to eat more. It sucks, but it's better than shiverin my tush off. I tried planting one of the seeds inside the burrow, to see if it grows~
