Sister Wolf was able to eat well during those days of abundance but still have plenty to share with the outlaws at night. She went to their camp each of the twelve nights of Christmas. Not once did the outlaws see her. The outlaws had no idea who was bringing them food. The fat one thought it was a fairy or other 45 forest spirit showing them kindness. The others all agreed that it was more likely to be a hermit. In those days, there were many hermits committed to simple lives of prayer throughout the countryside.
Sister Wolf let the youngest of the children, a gentle little girl with curly black hair who always giggled, ride on her back. When Sister Wolf came to the merchant’s door, he didn’t give scraps, but generous portions of whatever the merchant himself was eating. Soon that sadness turned to anger. The anger turned to rage. Someone had murdered a member of her pack for meaningless pieces of shiny yellow rock. During the night, instead of resting in her cave, Sister Wolf prowled the road to Brookhaven.

The Beggar King, who had learned to live comfortably in both city, field, and forest, agreed to teach the outlaws how to make shelters and clothing from whatever they could scavenge.
