Time Of Day: Evening (Sun is just setting)
Setting: Aranya Forest (An Ancient Forest over 5,000 years old almost as old as the Goddess that protects it.)
It was the middle of fall and her pelt had finally completed it's change. In another month or so it would become winter and her fur would become pure white and her vines and leaves would become silver all but the leaf on her head which would become an icy blue color. This wolf that patrolled this ancient forest was no ordinary wolf, she was it's guardian and protector yes but she was also so much more. She was Aranyani Goddess of the Forest and the animals that lived in this most ancient forest. She had created this forest and had named it after herself. Now for over one hundred years this forest had been at peace. In the distance she could hear the sound of squirrels running across the ground preparing for winter. Above she could hear the songs of birds flocking south for they too knew that soon it would become to cold and there would be no food for them to eat and they would starve. Some birds where able to find food in the winter and able to take the cold, others could not.
On this evening Aranyani was in search of a meal, she needn't eat regular like most creatures. A small rabbit could last her weeks, a deer months, a moose years. In this way she need to hunt and kill less. She hated killing, she was hear to protect the forest. But at least this would be the first time she had to kill in over five years. She began to stalk a heard of deer for she had been unable to find any moose, they must have moved to another part of her forest. Her pads made no sound as the walked upon the ground. When she spotted the heard she frowned and walked towards it. Unlike other beasts that attacked and killed without the creatures permission she approached and asked for one to give it's life's blood to her. This time she didn't need to say a thing. An older deer stepped forward and bowed his head. She smiled in thanks and stepped forward. "Your death will not be in vain. Your life's blood will let me continue to guard and protect the forest. For the life you give your herd will be protected from any threats for the next year." She always gave something in return when a creature gave it's life. With that she sank her fangs into it's next and broke it's neck so it's death would be painless. Aranyani refused to eat her kills around the heard she took from so she picked up her prey and began to drag it away. Several minutes later she senses someone was nearby watching her. Dropping her prey she stood and looked around. "I know you are there, you might as well show yourself."
