Have a great weekend!
Brave Heart, the centaur was walking through the forest one summer evening. All of a sudden he stopped, he was sure he heard crying, as though someone was in terrible pain. He waited until he was sure of the direction the sound was coming from, then set off towards it.
After a while, he entered a copse and there he found a small, black bear cub, with his leg caught in the teeth of a hunter’s cruel trap. Quickly, Brave Heart, pulled apart the deadly trap and gently lifted the small cub out of danger.
“What is your name, young cub?” asked Brave Heart. “Micki”, the little bear gently replied through his sobs.
“Where is your family?” asked Brave Heart, as he gently wiped the wound and dressed it with leaves and magical herbs that would heal it.
Micki told him that the hunter had shot his mother when she was trying to free him from the trap. “I have no-one” wept Micki.
Brave Heart lifted the cub gently onto his back and told him to hold tight. Micki sat comfortably on his back and soon fell asleep.
When he woke, Micki realized they had been traveling for a long time. “Do you need to rest?” Micki asked. Brave Heart smiled at the small cub and replied, “I’m fine, you don’t weigh much and from now on you are my brother, we are a family”.
Micki grinned up at his new friend, rested his head on Brave Heart’s strong back and fell fast asleep again.
