About Nuuk and Maarit

Nuuk is lost. Separated from his pod finds he is breaking through the ice of the northeast tides of the Gulf of Bothnia near the town of Oulu. Here Nuuk finds what he needs to get home in the form of a young Finnish girl.

Maarit can’t sleep, but dreams. She is an only child and it is her imagination that fills the spaces about her. Now she has found a new friend.

I’m not really sure where this story came from or where it will go. It started out as an exercise in conversation between a thoughtful child and a young narwhal and just the nonsense of their interaction.
