Little Forest was named after a famous fable story, Little Red Riding Hood. Some people say that while they are inside the boundaries of this lust forest, they can hear the echoing sounds of Red Riding Hood as she made her journey to her Grandmother's House.

But that is not the only sound however. The snarls of the Big Bad Wolf can be heard also, along with the screams of the Grandmother and the shouts of the Axeman.

Many generations have been since that legendary time, and now? The children of those four fabled people live on here.

Clear signs can be seen hanging on trees to warn people of what they can expect to see or hear when they travel around this forest of legend,

and what possibly could happen if they don't follow the trail.

Alice skipped a little ahead of Astrid, making sure to stay on the path so not to loose their way. Occasionally she would stop to ensure Astrid was not to far out of sight.

Astrid brought her hood up to shade her eyes from the sun, although she removed it once they entered the shade of the forest. While walking, Astrid would stop at times to pick up plants and Alice was kind enough to wait. "Have you seen anything interesting while you patrolled this area?" she asked when she began to walk again. The witch had heard stories about these parts, but never encountered danger. Maybe it was because she stuck to the path and never wandered too far from it if she was picking herbs. But Astrid wondered what kinds of plants were hidden in the forest, untouched by those that do not want to get lost. Maybe if she tied a string to a tree by a path and herself, she could explore deeper...

Alice stopped and gave a little shrug after a moment of thought.

"Nothing really, of course I've stayed on the past for the most part. I wasn't looking much for plants and stuff more kept a heads up for trouble and things like that."

"Is that so? Then, may danger never find you while you patroll these woods." Astrid read some of the signs on the sides of the path that warned travelers. Wild beasts and mudslides and falling rocks were cautioned against, and getting scared, she picked up her pace to be closer to Alice. "I'm just about done here," she looked at the contents of her bag, seeing that she had plenty of the ingredients she needed.

(Ooc: Sorry it took so long to get back. Must have missed the notification. Sorry^^;)

"You sure? We can always try to adventure of the path a little if your feeling brave. But we'd have to find a way to mark the path, the woods like this likes to be sneaky. You have to try to think one step of ahead of it"

"We could mark the trees, I suppose," Astrid looked at a bush of red berries along the path, then out at the dense forest. "I could crush them and we could use it as paint." She rummaged through her bad until she found a mortar and pestle. Astrid plucked a few berries and began to grind them to a pulp. "This feels as if we're like Hansel and Gretel, although I wouldn't like to find a house made of candy any time soon. Wicked witches, you know."

[Oh, no problem! I was camping anyways]

"Right! If I get the munchies, I should avoid chomping down on houses." Alice laughed rubbing the back of her head.

With one step ahead of the other, Alice began her first adventure of the beaten path.

Astrid dipped her fingers into the liquid and marked every other tree as they went deeper into the forest. "What do you suppose we'll find?" she asked, looking around their surroundings. She caught sight of a few animals before the creatures ran off, and there were plenty of birds singing in the trees.

"I'm not sure but you said your always looking for new things right? You might find some herbs or other components useful or at least unique for your shop."

Beyond a grove of trees a shadow loomed, slowly stalking the two women as they made their way deeper into the woods.

"Oh, I hope so," the witch answered with enthusiasm and remembered to look around the area closely to not miss any detail. The first thing she noticed was that the birds had stopped singing and that the canopy above made the forest look darker despite that it should've been high noon. "But I also hope I don't find danger exploring off path," she said, spinning slowly to find what was amiss. "Alice?" She called, trying not to let fear trickle into her voice. "We've gone far enough, I think it's time to backtrack. Maybe I missed something on the way here and I could take it back to my shop so that this journey wasn't wasted."

Alice turned back to face Astrid stopping in her tracks.

"All right, as long as your happy with what you think you've got I guess that's ok."

She stretched to the sky then stopped suddenly as a large bear easily 12ft slowly descended down from the grove of trees. Around its mouth a blood coagulated foam. Slowly she lowered her hands extended an open palm out to her left side. With a ripple in the air like a stone pebble that had deflected on the river . A light pulsated bending a solidifying into iron and steel in her hands, until it was gripped securely in her palm an ornate weapon of defense.

"Astrid, I want you to walk backward to me slowly...and try not to panic ok?"

Alice teal eyes turned serious something was off about that bear. Its eyes were deadened showing no sign of a living creature more like one who escaped from hell and was looking for the thrill of a good kill. It huffed and puffed and let out low growling roar. As it moved to cut off their way back to the safety of the path.

Astrid did as she was told and had her palms out in a way to coax the bear that she meant no harm. She walked backwards slowly, feeling relief each time she didn't stumble, and after a few moments, she was by Alice's side. "Do you intend to fight that beast?" she whispered worriedly, noticing the weapon that materialized in Alice's hand. Astrid had her wand with her, but what good can any of her spells do against that creature? She had to make sure they stayed around this area as well, otherwise, they'd lose sight of the mark trees and end up getting lost.

[ Haha, thanks, I needed to know how a bear sounded like. And lovely song, btw! ]

"If I have to, not something I relish the thought of but that is not exactly a happy or even nonthreatening looking bear. "

The bear took another step towards them, letting out more angry growls. Alice sidestepped to the side she made sure to keep the blade protectively in front of Astrid in case the bear tired of pacing and tried to lunge for them.

"Just step slowly and step with me for now, where going to try to circle the bear without a fight if we can. Let it take our direction and allowing us to maneuver back to the path. That's the plain anyway...if our blood shot fuzzy friend will cooperate we will have to see."

They circled the bear until their positions were reversed; the marked path was right behind Alice and Astrid.  Astrid turned her head slightly to look for the markings, but before she could turn around fully, the tip of a snout came into her peripheral view.  "Alice," she whispered, barely moving her mouth.  She shut her eyes tightly and stiffened when she felt the moisture of breath on her neck and the presence of something large behind her.  "I don't think it's alone."
