Now lest you think my journey,
Ends in such a way,
I can assure you,
Your eyes do not lead you astray.
A sound echoed out,
Like a bolt of lightning,
And the dogs,
Like dust before a storm.
I looked up,
To see who had saved me,
And to my surprise,
Saw the most beautiful women,
I have ever seen in my life.
My brilliant strategy was quickly formed,
To distract and deceive would be my goal,
I picked up a rock that lay nearby,
And with a swift pitch let it fly.
The Starlight Wolves looked away,
Their natural born instincts leading them astray.
And then I chose a gap in their number,
And ran through it.
They didn’t have much time to react,
But react they did,
bitting at my heel as I flew by,
Forcing me to greet the Earth with my face.
Bearing me down,
I was in trouble,
That much was sound.
I turned to run,
But those glowing blue eyes,
Barred my way behind,
And both sides.
I would have to use my brilliant mind,
to come up with some strategy,
To escape and confound.
I scoffed at the merchant and walked away,
What right did he have to judge my readiness,
For an adventure and meaning,
Beyond the safety of my front door.
So I kept on my way,
Not caring to make much hay,
About how quickly the road had become empty.
Such was the way my journey would go.
For when I found the care to look around,
I noted the sun was setting,
And glowing beast were starting to surround,
Glowing wolves made of yellow starlight and sapphire eyes.
