Every evening, Marcy _____ to the tales of her father's adventures.  Though she never quite _____ him...after all, he _____ very old and far too portly.  

But at night, everything _____.  The creatures from her father's amazing tales _____ into terrifying monsters in the shadows.  Marcy _____ utterly lost and alone in the dark.  All she could do was _____ her eyes tight and _____ for sunrise.

One day Arthur _____ it was time for Macy's first adventure.  He _____ that Marcy _____ his stories, so he _____ her deep into the forest to _____ an old friend.

As the day _____ on, Marcy started to _____ that they wouldn't _____ their way back in the dark.  Arthur _____ up into the sky and _____ her that the North Star would always _____ them home, no matter how dark it _____.
