Meri, a very young girl, lived in the small town of Niroma, where they lived peacefully. However, a nearby tribe of centaurs was angered when they started cutting down trees. The centaurs and humans clashed since then. One day, Meri followed a bunny deep into the forest.
She got lost and couldn't find her way back to the village, and fell to the ground crying. However, as she looked up, she saw a centaur. Meri had never seen one before and was startled. The centaur was about to take her back to the village when one of his colleges said they should raise her into a weapon to use against the humans. They took her back into their tribe and, over time, Meri forgot about her old, normal life.
As she was growing up, Meri became more adventurous and often went outside of the boundaries that her centaur family had set for her. One day, she saw a human walking along a clearing while she was very far out from the tribe. She had never seen anyone else like her, so, intrigued, she followed him. After a hours of following, Meri looked into the plain that the boy was headed to. There sat a human village!
Meri's curiosity took over and she went into the village. There were lights and sounds and smells she had never experienced before. She continued going back to the village daily However, an old lady once questioned who Meri was and where she came from. Not knowing anything else, Meri answered honestly, and the woman became worried for her sake because the centaurs were "dangerous" and tried to keep her there, but Meri ran off. Meri also met some friends while wandering the streets. They were very nice to her and she didn't want the centaurs to hurt them in their fights.
One day, the centaur's plan for the ambush on the humans was finally put into action. They started burning the homes and killing the livestock. The human fought back by tackling the centaurs and bringing them down one by one. Meri was so conflicted. She didn't know whose side to take. The centaurs, who raised her, or the humans, who welcomed her. She finally decided that she would take no sides and that she would stop the fighting once and for all.
Meri threw herself in front of the fighting people and told them to stop, to talk, to make peace. At first they didn't listen, but Meri finally got all of their attention. She told them that there was no point in war, that in the end, it would just lead to hundreds dead. Eventually, she convinced them all to sit down and talk, and eventually, they made a treaty to reserve most of the deeper forest to the centaurs and to give the humans the outer edge of the clearing. Peace was incredible, and Meri hoped that the town never suffered from war again.
