"Vulwin sweetie, time to wake up!" "But its still dark out mommy..." "If you're not awake when the sun rises, then how can you enjoy the beauty of Chislev? Its the first day of Spring!!" "Spring?" I question as I Jump from bed, grabbing my clothes and quickly get dressed as I rush outside and to the glade. My mother following quickly, giggling. As I reach the glade, the sun is just below the horizon. Crouching at the edge I scan the area, watching every blade of grass, every flower bud. As the sun breaks the horizon, I can see the grass awaken, perk up, and flower buds slowly open, catching every ray of light. "Its beautiful mommy!" With no words and a bright smile, she just looks at me. As the sun rises and the hours pass, the beauty becomes more and more exquisite. Just before the sun reaches its peak, every blade of grass, every petal of every flower turn to the east. Entering the glade from the east, I see a beautiful unicorn. "Can I touch her mommy?" I whisper. "If she will let you honey. Just believe in our Goddess, Chislev tells us to listen to our instincts, follow your urges..." Next thing I know, I'm in the glade, half-way to the unicorn, my clothes nowhere to be found. As I approach the unicorn she stops, our eyes connect, and then I'm running my hand along her flank, so exquisite, so majestic....and my reverie is shattered by a shriek, a scream. Its my mother. "Run baby, run as fast as you can and don't stop!" She shrieks. Here I am, standing at the center of the glade, naked, alone, afraid, and confused. Which way do I go? My mother is surrounded by unknown assailants. Glancing around I see the glade is surrounded, but my mom said run...again, which way...again I scan the glade. The grass is all facing north now, the bugs are flitting about, but headed north. "Follow my instincts," I mutter...and off I go, to the North. "Embrace my urges," I chant as I reach down and grab a stiff, sharp stick from the ground, my feet never skipping a beat. As I reach the northern end of the glade, I see a man, grinning, watching me, and I raise the stick so it is between me and this man. "And the boy even brings me a switch!" The man leers. "Follow my instincts, embrace my urges, follow my urges, embrace my instincts..." the mantra keeps my feet pumping. I raise the stick, keep it between me and my assailant, don't stop, keep running...he holds his ground, I keep running. Stick in front, what to do? "KEEP RUNNING!" I hear in my head. I point my stick, he chuckles, I keep running. His neck, I see his neck, why does that matter? Keep running, listne to my instincts, embrace my urges, just keep running, he will move...and then I see red, smell copper, and find myself all wet...just keep running, don't stop...where'd the man go? I stop...the unicorn is back, standing there before me, I look behind me, the man is laying in the grass, a stick protruding from his neck... "But I'm only five...I can't kill anyone..." I whisper. "Where is my mom? "She is lost my son, I'm sorry, I feel your pain, now come," the woman takes my hand and leads me off into the forest....where'd the unicorn go?
