A Forest is finally found and the elves are ecstatic. Cutter, in such a good mood, decides to rescue a drowning squirrel, but gets bitten for his generosity. Soon infection sets in and while Skywise searches for a known remedy Nighrunner guards Cutter, who in his delirium wanders into the camp of 2 humans -- Nonna the Symbol Maker and Adar, son of Tolf.

After some tense times they nurse Cutter in his illness but Nightrunner is wounded while trying to protect Cutter from the humans--so he runs to get Cutter-friend, Skywise.

Finally compromise is met and the elves and the humans have a tense detente while Cutter mends.
