Mother Deer grabbed her young ones while the other animals rushed to cross the great river. Everyone showed their human instincts, pushing, kicking, and growling desperately on their way to safety. Mother Deer made it to the other side with Fawn but Mother Rabbit forgot one of her many young ones so she asked her for help. Mother Deer laid Fawn on the ground, promised that she’d be right back, and started swimming to the other side. The fire grew and Mother Deer was never seen again. Mother Rabbit took Fawn with her, but it was hard to feed a fawn that was eight times her size. Overwhelmed with her own and the lack of resources, she was forced to leave him on his own. He was left hungry, alone and cold. The creatures that were amongst him were unwilling to help him. On this new journey, he encountered an owl. Owl was the only one who made an effort to help, as he was also by himself; he was very wise and gave him much insight into life. The group they were traveling with traveled for weeks trying to find a shelter. Among these animals was a fox who was known for deceiving others in the group. When presented with two paths, the fox told Fawn that he knew which way was the right way to go. Fox had told him that he was told by the birds in the sky that they would reach a safe place if they took the left road. If Fawn decided to follow Fox, he would have to give him something in return. Owl advised him not to listen to Fox but he proceeded to disregard Owl. Feeling like his protector, Owl followed even though he knew what they were embarking on was a risk. Once he reached the end of the road they arrived at Fox’s Creek. Fox demanded payment however, they had nothing to give him. Fawn and Owl were never seen again.
