“Be Careful of Those Woods” (Tales from the Woods)

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”?

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.
