Was there room in these trees for a bear like him? ” Lusa asked Kallik. “Black bears go into the trees. ” Kallik lowered her muzzle and met Lusa’s gaze. Her eyes were troubled. “They become part of the ice,” she said. “And when the ice melts, they go into the sky to join the ice spirits. But I don’t know what happens if there’s no ice for them. ” She glanced up at the sky, where the sun was blazing beyond the tree cover. “That would make sense,” Ujurak said.
