The wolf is in no hurry, his jaws are the cogged wheels of Time, he is just waiting his chance ! His halting breath fills the air with forbidden desire.
He is proud of his genealogy, going back as far as the god Saturn who ate his children, and even further to Anubis the Egyptian dog, gardien of the kingdom of the dead.
To satisfy his devouring passion, he asks us to continue telling stories in which he is the hero. Next to him his manservant, originally from wonderland. He is a contriving rabbit, constantly running between two worlds, trying to gain time.
He is the guardien and manipulater who holds the key to this house.
