    Summary

    Alec grew up raised by an older woman, who'd taken him in after his parents had died. He was still very little back then, but he understood that they weren't related. That didn't stop the woman from caring and loving him, however, and over time they became a family. They lived in a house a bit away from the village, right by the forest.
    It was a peaceful life until one night, on a full moon, a wolf killed half the sheep of their neighbor. Hoping that the wolf wouldn't stay for long, the villagers waited. A month passed with no more loss and it was assumed that the beast moved on. Then on the next full moon, more animals were killed. The wolf was back and this time, a small hunting party was called to hunt it down. Their bloodied corpses were found the next day.
    Alec's Nana forbade him to leave the house after sunset. They bolted the doors and windows and prayed that their proximity to the woods wouldn't tempt the wolf to pay them a visit. Another thing that his Nana insisted on, to Alec's utter bewilderment, was that he wear a red hooded cloak at all times. She was adamant that the color would protect him from the creature.

    Summary

    Jaeheara fully expects to live a life free of her mobster family when her father packs everything valuable that they own and runs with her into the night.

    Unfortunately, that is not the case. It seems the family wants her back, and they will get her with or without her consent. What does Jaehaera do?

    That's easy! She fights every step of the way.

    (A modern fairytale in which Jaehaera is the reluctant Rapunzel-like creature that everyone thinks they can keep locked in a tower. But Jaehaera won't accept any tower that is not of her own making.)

    Summary

    He thinks he’s being stealthy, the fool, crossing from his back meadows to my garden. As though I would blame wild animals for the crushed lace of the wild carrot flowers and the fragrance of bruised mint. Deer eat all plants, wolves eat none, and only a man embosses the soft earth with the stark prints of hobnailed boots.
