Grandpa always told us, “Be careful of those woods”. We didn’t know why. We were pretty much convinced he was just trying to scare us. He may have also been a little crazy. Why should we have to “be careful of those woods”?
A Tales from the Woods Story:
Listen to your elders. They know things you do not.
(See the excerpt below)
Let me know if you enjoy the story!
Dear Children of Bear Wood,
It is time that you know the truth. As the three oldest children of the
mountain have already not heeded our warnings, we feel it necessary
tell you the dangers of the woods. There are good reasons why your
elders do not want you out there.
You see, when you go into the woods, it swallows you. If you get too
close, it can even suck you in. We are not sure what the cause of this
is, this phenomenon that has been happening for generations, but if
you go into the woods, you may not be able to find your way out. The
Book tells us about this happening to many people, but it does not
specify why it happens.
