lark_in_flight: Cosette smiling down, eyes closed, in private happiness or smug satisfaction (a heart full of joy)

It really does seem that way! Which might mean nothing but an especially brave squirrel, or might mean only one of the small strangenesses of Milliways and its creatures; but then again, it might mean something more peculiar than that.

Cosette hasn't told anyone of the time that she was transformed into a lark for a few days. But she remembers it like a wonderful, exciting dream.

"Hello, M. Squirrel," she says when they're near, mock-solemn, with a little laugh trembling under her words.

How silly, to greet a small animal as if it were a person! And the silliest part of all is that here at Milliways, it might truly be a person. Either way, she's entertained by the very idea, and just in case it's true she ought to be polite.
