“Day and night cannot dwell together!” Spotted Bear rose from the table and strode angrily from the house.

“Please Papa,” Christina called after him, “you’re more alike than you know.” Her husband John gently placed his hand on her swelling womb, her restless skin rippling beneath his touch.

As Spotted Bear walked off his fury in the forest, a great stag strode majestically out of the trees, blocking his path. His rage forgotten, the old man stopped and gazed in wonder. Then, just as suddenly, it was gone.

Spotted Bear sighed. The spirits had spoken;

it was time for peace.
