Anya's Folly

Anya's Folly, children's stories

After hearing the trees cry out in pain, Anya could not sleep, fearing the sound would follow her in her dreams. Her husband, Gojeck, brushed the sound off as a distant owl's cry, angering his wife. The elder Malak listened to Anya's explanation but could not offer her any solace. So the matron went to her thinking place to ponder what steps she should next take. Ultimately, she returned home feeling just as helpless as she had been that morning. Perhaps it had all been a fool's errand, and she was the fool for thinking she could solve the mystery of the screaming trees.
