2.3 Disappointing News

Oh my goodness. The king said that the piece of sky I had carried so far to show him was actually an acorn. An acorn! He was very kind and gracious, and I am glad that the sky isn't falling, but it is such a disappointment. He explained it all and he congratulated me for my courage and my pluck. He even invited me to stay the night and join him at the banquet. I am looking forward to seeing my friends from the wagon again at dinner.
