Text:

He spoke. "You two, snake 
and bear, who are our 
leaders, can you answer 
just one question for me? 
I shall leave if anyone 
here can provide a 
satisfactory answer and you
may continue your 
discussion."

"Speak fast, dog, or I 
shall begin the destruction 
of your people with you," 
rumbled the great bear.

"Tell me, then. What does 
corruption look like?"

The snake responded 
quickly, "It takes the form
of disease, most often."

"And yet," said the wolf, 
"disease weans out the  
unfit. It is natural for 
disease to take those that 
it should."

The snake glared at the 
wolf, but was unable to 
refute this point. The 
wolf cocked his head at the
bear, who had no response 
at all except to bear his 
gnarled teeth. The wolf 
then looked at each of the  
others in turn. None had a
reply, until the cold grey 
eyes of the wolf turned to 
the young fox. "You are a 
clever creature, surely you
must know what corruption 
looks like."

"Of course!" The fox was 
also a vain creature, a 
trait that wolves despise 
about their smaller  
cousins. "Corruption is 
the thing that destroys the
strong. It ruins the order
of things. It turns things
in on themselves, changes 
their perspective or their 
course." Foxes are also 
clever creatures, another 
trait that annoys wolves.

The wolf turned to the bear
and asked, "What did you  
come here to do this 
night?" As he spoke, a 
light rain began to fall.

"That's two questions, 
wolf! Fox has answered 
you, now get out of here."

Wolf then noticed that 
snake had slithered away 
while the others were 
talking. As the rain  
drifted into the grove 
crickets began to chirp, as
they often do when things 
suddenly become too quiet 
for their liking. Wolf 
glanced over at the young 
fox in time to see a second
pair of eyes appear above 
his head out of the trees. 
Wolf turned and walked away
into the forest the moment 
before snake slide his  
coils around fox's neck.

As soon as the wolf was out
of sight the misty rain 
ceased. As the sun rose a 
rainbow could be seen above
the trees the bordered the 
clearing.
