She was in the dark meadow, She saw a beautiful big brown wolf with shiney, silky fur. She saw its shining brown eyes as they twinkled in the moonlight. She neared it from the corner of the beautiful meadow. She saw its eyes full of worry when she neared it by the second. She sat across from the beautiful yet sacred creature. She closed her eyes for a moment. Seconds later she felt a presence and warm breath in her face. She slowly opened her eyes and saw the creature, curiosity full in its big brown eyes. The wind blew through her, whispering a name.
