"The moon in the sky was shining dimly on the forest below. The green trees showing a hint of silver as they swayed in the calm breeze. The forest floor was littered with twigs and small branches from a recent storm that had just passed through."
"The light of a fire was barely visible through the thick foliage that surrounded it on all sides. Sitting in front of the fire were many people, each of them facing towards the fire. Little did they know that they were not alone. Lurking in the bushes was-"

Is it almost within your hand?
How close are you to getting there?
Would you go there without a care?

How many people are in dire need?

Do you know what bothers you?
Have you lived your whole day through?
Do you know that your not alone?

She looked and instantly showed deep apprehension.
She gave a loud scream, the werewolf had scared her,
but, he actually wanted a "heart-sick" cure.
He spoke quickly, eyes filled with fright,
"Please do not fear, and please hear my plight!"
With the quickest of motions, his hand shot out,
his paw did open, and the letter had sprout.
The girl looked quickly at the letter in hand,
