Sandtray Stories - Otter and Wolf - Part 2

Part 2
One day a hunter came to the pond.  Otter was alone.   

The hunter threw a net over Otter.  Poor Otter was helpless - he couldn't get out of the net.

As he was struggling, Wolf arrived.  Wolf was angry.  He wanted to protect his friend.  He pounced on the hunter and they fought. 

While they were fighting, Otter escaped and hid.  Suddenly, Otter heard a loud bang.  He looked out from his hiding place and saw the hunter limping away. 

Wolf was laying on the ground and bleeding.  Otter ran to Wolf, but there was nothing he could do.  Wolf was dying. 

"It's all my fault," said Otter. 

"No," said Wolf, "it's not.  I don't want you to blame yourself.  Remember I love you and remember to play." 

Otter hugged Wolf until he died.  Then he buried his friend and cried all day long.  He missed Wolf.  He no longer felt like playing.

Sandtray Stories - Otter and Wolf - Part 1

I put my stories in a box specific to them.
This is the story of Otter and Wolf

Part 1:
Near a pond lived an otter.  He loved to play. 

Every day his friend Wolf would come to the pond to drink and play. 

They splashed in the water until they were tired and then they would curl up together and sleep.
