Evie scouts the northern woods for a troublesome ogre. But there are other creatures besides ogres lurking in the forest!
“Grrrr…I’ll show YOU cute,” the youngling growled as he leveled his toy crossbow at me.
“Oh my!” I exclaimed, surprised. He was so funny and sweet, play-acting being tough.
‘Oh! I get it! He wants to play a game with me!’
I realized that playing his game was a good way to put him at ease from ‘stranger danger.’ I’d role play along with him until I figured out how to get him home safely.
“I surrender!” I called out playfully when I was right before him. I stuck my sword into the ground and raised my hands. “I’ll play along, little guy! Let’s pretend I’m your prisoner, ok?”

And watch for more with Evie soon!
