1. Wolf howled at the moon.
  2. What's wrong? Moon asked.
  3. Wolf said, I'm all alone. I'm hungry and cold. My mate was captured and put in a zoo. I'm sad all the time and I don't think I'll ever be happy again
  4. Moon said, I'm sorry Wolf. But at least you still feel something. I don't even get sad anymore. I just feel numb. I wish I felt sad sometimes. Sad would be something, at least.
  5. Yeah, Wolf said. Look, I have to run. But we'll talk soon.
  6. Okay, Moon said. It feels good to talk. I'm glad we did this. How about same time tomorrow night?
  7. We'll see, Wolf said. I mean, sure, I'll try.
  8. Wolf darted off into the forest.
  9. Moon sat in the sky pleased to have made a friend, excited for the night to pass into day and back again for the first time in as long as he could remember.
