Jake walked through dhê Forist, following the Rivèr Hos to dhê Mawntinz. Most of it was uneventful, except at one point he saw a huge wolf running towards him on two legs. Its huge mouth hung open and its arms were raised in the air as though he was going to pounce on Jake. He wished he’d a spare pair of underwear…
Jake felt doomed, but saw one opportunity; “Take the juicy donkey, not me. You wouldn’t like me I’m stringy!” The donkey tried to kick Jake but at that moment he started to jump into the undergrowth.
Fortunately for them both the wolf ran straight past, screaming “They’re coming, they’re coming, run for your lives!!!” Further up the was a little hut that the wolf enteretd into and shut the door behind him.
Jake’s logic made super-rapid calculations and in a millisecond he’d considered why the anthropomorphic wolf, a fearsome and vicious creature, would run away. And of course the answer would be something even more fearsome and vicious than the wolf. Jake’s leg made then next calculation for him: Run! As fast as you can!
Had Jake stayed around he might have been surprised to see a “nice” little girl in a red cloak and three cute piglets coming along the path after them. Had Jake seen them he might have been fooled into thinking they were safe. Fortunately he ran, and got to the Druid’s Staff Union much earlier than expected and missed the spectacle of the little gang systematically ripping apart the little house to get to the wolf inside.
