A knight came across a little girl in the forest. She reminds him of his daughter back at home after decades of war. The girl is very slim like a walking human stick. Bare feet with mud stained her leg and torn cloth filled with patches. The knight decided to take the little girl with him and out of the forest. He carried the girl on his arm and helped her up on his horse. Suddenly, two muggers appeared. The knight took out his lance and easily finished off the two muggers. Starvation has turned people into starving beasts and made them bewildered like “starving animals.”

The knight told the little girl, “Don’t be afraid.”

The knight pet the girl’s hair and the little girl asked, “Why didn’t you eat them?”

The knight was surprised by her question. “Why should I eat them?”  the knight asked surprisingly.

The little girl blinked her eyes and replied:

“Daddy had eaten mommy.”

“Brother had eaten daddy.”

“And I had eaten my brother.”

After these words, the knight felt terrible. He hugged the little girl and promised that he would protect this girl who just experienced something that a child should never have to go through.

The knight looked at the girl and asked, “How did you escape?”

“I didn’t,” the girl replied. “I came out right after I had eaten my brother.”
