The smallest hero
Every five years, at
the time of the first snow storm of the winter, a lone Wolf will
travel down from the Restless forests and into the Peaceful meadows.
The Wolf wrecks havoc, destroys every nest it finds and slaughters
those animals that haven't found a good enough place to hide, then
leaves as suddenly as it came, and won't be seen for the next half
of a decade. And every time the animals of the meadows will choose
the bravest warrior to challenge the beast, believing and hoping
that one year the messenger Bullfinch will fly to the Hiding Place
bringing word of a great victory. Then the Peaceful meadows would
finally truly be peaceful.
