There is an American/ Indian legend that goes  like this: In a small village there was one wolf left. All the other wolves were killed, banished or they had fled away from there. This one wolf cried every night, a chilling sound, the sound of a howling wolf. The people in town thought it was a sign of the devil and the strangest stories were told. In this same village, lived a boy. He was surrounded by many people, but no one really knew who he was. He had never opened his heart to anyone.Every night when he went to sleep, he heard the cry of the wolf and it hypnotised him so much that he decided to find this wolf.He knew all the bad and horrifying stories about the wolf, but something inside of him was awakenend and he couldn't let go of the idea of finding the wolf. He went into the deep dark forests on his own and found many perils on his way. A bear tried to kill him, he found a wounded deer, but there was one moment that changed his life forever. On this particular night, when the boy had almost given up hope, he stood face to face with the wolf.The boy could see his own reflection in the wolf's eyes and the wolf stared at him endlessly. Neither of them tried to move until suddenly the wolf started to cry and the silende was broken. The boy had never felt so many emotions all at once. It was like he and the wolf were one. He now knew what the wolf's cry was for, it was to banish solitude, to end an era of loneliness. The boy knew exactly what the wolf was feeling and legend says that they went off together, to a better place, never to feel emptiness again. Some say they have seen them together, but who knows? This is my version of this particular wolf. I imagine his eyes were like crystals before he met the boy, cold and empty...
