Oefe heard a sound. This sound was like nothing he had heard before. After spending hours hunted for deer, he was exhausted. Could he have been hearing things?
I will be a coward no longer!
As a child, he had heard his grandfather tell stories about haunted woods in distant lands, filled with all manner of evil and horrifying spirits... A paralysing shiver ran down his spine as he wondered, "Could this be such a place?"
Panic overcame him. He darted frantically into a hollow tree nearby so that he could hide from...well, he had no idea what that deafening noise could have been. Oefe was the bravest soldier in kingdom however, he didn't feel it. Palms sweating and limbs shaking, he tried to calm his breathing.
After a few minutes, the shaking hunter realised something. He was responsible for his village and therefore it was HIS responsibility to save the innocent children from this mysterious creature - whatever it was. Into the rain, he emerged from the safety of his hollow tree and courageously set out to investigate!
