It had a soothing effect upon us; and before we knew it, our rage forgotten, we were in the full swing of a hee-hee council.
And so it was that our rage against Red-Eye was soothed away by art, and we screamed the wild choruses of the hee-hee council until the night warned us of its terrors, and we crept away to our holes in the rocks, calling softly to one another, while the stars came out and darkness settled down.
