Ancient Rite of Passage(Knot+Heart+Lotus)
To the Spirits of the Great Temple,I am Nodding Squirrel a boy in the village of Golden Winds. At the age of 13 I must now pass into adulthood as my father and his father and the many fathers before him have done. When I pass, I will gain a new name, the name of a brave man, as well as great honor and the love of the chief's daughter, Winking Lilly. Across from the lake of Uktena Tears and over the Moonbridge there is the forest of Long and Haunted Paths. In this village many moons ago in the time of the great chief Howling Dog my people encountered the spirit Empty Belly the wolf. Empty belly tried to trick the people into his den to devour them, but the clever chief lead them on the straight and true path that gave us our beautiful fields of Golden Winds.Since the great triumph against the tricky Empty Belly, the angry wolf spirit has wondered the woods looking for a descendant to devour in revenge. When boys of the Golden Wind become 13, we are meant to travel to Empty Belly and prove our worthiness by surviving 4 days in the wild with him. I am frightened. I worry that I may not be able to out fox the wolf, but if I do not go I will not be a man! I cannot avoid the fate, for fear of ridicule and forever the status of a child! Worst than that, I cannot marry the beautiful Winking Lilly until I have become an adult, and surely she will move on to another, braver man! Imagine, Nodding Squirrel, a 30 year old boy watching his love married to another! No, surely I must go.Can the brave Spirits of the Great Temple help me to find the courage and wit to avoid either horrible fate? I will place this at the very top of the tallest hill I know, and let the wind spirits bring it to you.
