I haven't slept in several nights and I'm not tired. Who will protect the ones I love when I'm asleep? And though there's little I can do, I'll say a prayer that when the wolves come for their share they'll come for me.
The woman cloaked in black came up to me once more. Her pale hand peeked out of her dress holding a small creature. "Take care of it." She holds her hand out allowing me to take it before vanishing. I look down at the small little creature wrapped in a black blanket. It's a human child, no one has seen one in centuries.
