Read from the Book

"You can't remember how you became the errand boy of a suspected witch.

You can only remember being desperate...

Run swiftly
as fast as you can.

There are other dangers here.
You know this.
To reach the witch's hut one must beware of all those creatures of the Whispering Woods.

The day is breaking.
The rain is shaking the leaves on the trees.
A drop here,
a drop there,
move faster,
pick up speed."
