He and Serina both hide their tails and fur, not wanting to remind the farmer of the foxes that stole his goose!So it's a pair of ordinary-looking children that Alius the farmer meets. He takes them to the barn where one of the girls is milking the last of the cows."We brought the others out to the pasture earlier, but those two weren't ready." He tells them. "Take them out to the field down by the pond where the rest are grazing. Then come right back!""Y-yes, of course!" Serina replies and tugs at Rufus' jacket to get his attention.
