Hello my friends, it's Ruby here. I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately with everything going on in the Great Valley. It seems like there are always new challenges and obstacles to overcome, and sometimes it can be hard to keep up with it all.

Lately, I've found myself needing some time alone to think things through. So today, I decided to go for a walk by myself and clear my mind. As I wandered through the lush greenery of the valley, I couldn't help but feel grateful for this beautiful place that we call home.

I made my way to my favorite thinking spot - a quiet little clearing surrounded by tall trees and colorful flowers. Sitting down on a soft patch of grass, I closed my eyes and let out a deep sigh. The gentle rustling of leaves in the breeze was soothing, almost like nature itself was trying to comfort me.

As thoughts swirled around in my head like fallen leaves caught in a whirlwind, I tried to focus on one thing at a time. First off was Chomper - our dear friend who is still learning how to navigate life as both Sharptooth and Leaf Eater. It's not easy being different from everyone else, but Chomper has shown such courage and determination in finding his place among us.

Then there's Littlefoot - our brave leader who always puts others before himself. He carries so much weight on his shoulders yet remains strong for all of us when we need him most. And Cera - fiery yet loyal Cera who never backs down from a challenge no matter how tough it may seem.

And lastly Petrie – sweet Petrie whose heart is as big as his wingspan! He may be small but he has proven time after time that size doesn't matter when you have bravery running through your veins.

Thinking about each of them brought warmth into my heart despite the uncertainty that lingered within me regarding Red Claw’s threat looming over us all…

But then again what would happen if they were hurt? Or worse-what if they didn’t make it back safely..?

Suddenly tears welled up in my eyes threatening spill onto face until finally letting go allowing sadness pour out along side concern which lead into fear taking hold making grip tightens upon soul eroding hope away slowly leaving only despair…

Taking deep breaths steadied nerves calmed storm inside chest cavity giving clarity needed push forward once more even though daunting task ahead loomed large overhead waiting its turn strike unexpectedly any moment now!

I felt determined than ever find solution combat evil force encroaching upon peaceful haven called home where family resides safe sound under protection great stone walls shielded invaders far beyond reach sight keeping innocence pure untainted dangers lurking outside perimeter ready pounce unsuspecting prey...
