Once upon a time there was small fox.
The little fox: wandered and wandered: From village to village. In search of something: what it was – She did not know.
As she continued her voyage, time passed and passed, and, soon the little fox had grown big and beautiful: with a lithe silhouette and shinning red fur.

Once upon a time, a cunning fox entered the lair of a two legs and wondered: what it would be like to walk and move as they did.
Once upon a time, there was a cunning fox who felt herself expand as a two legs petted her. It expanded and expanded, the worth of hundreds of years of travels, changing and shifting.
