~~The clouds had ended and down below, Keehar could now clearly see the lone beach tree on the top of Watership Down. The tree was now bare from the harsh cold of winter. He dived down and looped to the side of the entrance before he slid on the snow and hit the trunk of the tree once again. He pulled himself up and shook the snow off, then entered the burrow. He went down to the Honeycomb to find everybody gathered around in groups, gossiping or just standing around. Tharsin approached Blackberry and Hyzenthlay.
"The squirrels want to know when the feast starts, they're hungry." he said.
"Squirrels are always hungry, Tharsin." said Hyzenthlay. Tharsin then had a look of disappointment on his face.
"Hazel and Bigwig and the others aren't back yet, are they?"
"Not yet." said Blackberry.
"They're all right, aren't they?" said Tharsin. "I mean, they'll be home soon, won't they?" Then, from the passageway behind them came the sound of crying and blubbering, and in entered Keehar.
"All gone!" he cried.
"Keehar, what's wrong?" asked Hyzenthlay.
"'Azel… Fiver… Bigveeg… Everybody's… Not coming back." The three rabbits gasped at the news they just received. They ran to Keehar to hear more of what he had to say. "I leave dem to up high, high above clouds to find way home, den I come back down, 'Azel and everybody's gone."
"Gone?" asked Tharsin. "Where?"
"Keehar look everywhere… No tracks, no nothing, just… Just fox." And he made a terrible cry that made every creature in the warren came to see what was wrong. Keehar continued to cry, along with Hyzenthlay and several others.
"They're not gone!" yelled Tharsin, who was also on the brink of tears. "Hazel and the others will come back! It's Frith's Eve, they have to come home!"
