The she-wolf bared her fangs and snapped at the queen, rearing up on hind legs. “Be gone, demon!” the queen shouted, and gave a final blow. When the branch hit the wolf, the creature let out a piercing howl and changed into a thick cloud of mist. Before the queen’s eyes, the mist reformed itself into the figure of a young maiden – it was her daughter, Padma.

“Daughter!” the queen cried. “How is it that you have come to be here among all of these wolves?”

Padma smiled. “The wolves are my friends, and the forest is my home.”

That was when the queen understood. The flower of which Rama had spoken was her treasured Padma.

  1. Hi Leigh,
    Very nice. I like wolves. I am trying to like all animals. I am a new-be at the animal stuff, but open and willing.
    So, this is a quote from your new book coming out? I hope we will get a chance to get your book on-line, maybe through Viva. Let us know when publishing date is and congratulations. That is an awesome accomplishment.
    I have been encouraged by my angels to investigate the book and writing area so your book sounds like a very good interest start for me. Again, thanks for sharing.
    Love, Kit 🙂
