Once upon a time, there was a bear named Aban, who lived in the Boreal Forests. Because he lives alone, he really enjoys the company of his friends, Omid and Maloos. The spring and summer are generally a pleasant time for him, but when the last leaf of autumn falls, Aban feels a sense of gloom. While most animals begin getting excited for the winter snow and talking about plans to see the Auora Borealis, Aban can only wish to join. You see, every winter, Aban has to go into hibernation, and consequently has never gotten to see this magical Aurora Borealis he's heard so much about. After he says goodbye to his friends, he goes into his cave, and sleeps for several months. When he finally emerges in spring, Omid and Maloos are quick to greet him. They do their best to avoid talking about their winter adventures, although it's difficult to when all the other animals are always buzzing about the Borealis. One winter though, while he was heading back to his cave to hibernate, Aban stepped on some litter containing some dark, bitter fluid. After he tasted it, he realized he stopped yawning and no longer felt sleepy. He ends up following a scent trail that leads him to a cafe based on the edge of the forest. Realizing the logo on the litter matched the one on the cafe, he deduces that this must be where he can get more of this magical drink.
