Elona screamed in terror; she realized that the lives of the children were in great danger.

The farmer's wife rushed indoors and found enough warm clothes, furs and shoes for them. She was nervous and asked her son:

"Have I got time to give them everything they need including food"?

"I saw them at the edge of the forest", he replied.

"It will take a while for the soldiers to get here".

"Be quick mother", cried her daughter.


She rushed into the pantry and put all the food she could into the two leather bags and gave them to the children.

- Hurry off now dear children. Run as fast as you can. Don't forget we all love you.

Luna and Midar dashed into the forest with tears in their eyes and disappeared among the trees. Their beloved family would never see them again. It was a sad day for everybody.
