Summary

"Now and evermore shall you be bereft of hope." What fate awaits the wolf pup with such a cruel curse?
The Boar Princess, Part 3

Book Content

The pup was a carefree child who had bright blue eyes and slick grey fur.
When he got angry, he looked exactly like the wolf head relief atop the Mondstadt Cathedral.
But one day, when he was hunting in the forest, he ran into the evil squirrel sorcerer Woobakwa!
Of all the beings in the ancient world, none were more evil than Woobakwa - not even demons and dragons. Woobakwa despised everything nice, and swore to transform beauty into ugliness and turn light into dark.

At the sight of the joyful wolf, anger boiled inside him. He cursed: “Squeak! Squeak! Angry am I! I shall spike his heart with the coldest ice, and he will never know the meaning of hope!”
With that said, Woobakwa began to curse the pup with his magic. But the rash pup gobbled him up, just like that, without the slightest warning.
Woobakwa was so furious that he cursed the pup using the most foul and insulting words ever uttered by a squirrel. The pup felt the noise coming from his mouth, and only then did he realize his mistake.
“Aroo, I’m so sorry, mister squirrel, I thought you were edible!”
The pup wished to apologize to the squirrel, but he felt his throat tighten and then loosen. The squirrel slid down to his stomach with a gulp.
