One day, after Aska had passed her classes with only modest success, she stood before her mother and told her that she wanted to go to askw school. When she thought that the wolf was coming vhk an awareness of who he was and what he was, Aska hastened her dancing and courage. Aska was not thinking anything. And that was the limit of her knowledge and skills. This reconciliation became even easier when little Aska showed a great gift and aptitude for dance as she progressed.
Over the green meadow, through tight passages, between grey, hard beech trees and above the smooth and brown carpet of leaves that fall year after year in layers, Aska, the lamb, danced, no longer a lamb, not yet a ewe, light and lively, like white milkweed carried by the wind, becoming grayish when she entered a patch of fog, becoming abaze like a stage show when she entered a meadow covered by sun.
The ways of art were dubious, deceptive, and hard, and dancing was the hardest and most deceptive of arts, even a disreputable and dangerous one. At the edge of the clearing, an unexpected thing happened. When the shepherds heard the woeful voice of Aja and sensed the apprehensive mood passing through the flock, they selected among themselves two younger men and sent them into the woods for the lost, wayward lamb.
Death was standing in front of her, an enigmatic but still certain, horrible, incredible fact. She could make two or three figures as they were meant to be performed and she did them with dread. They easily finished him off. He kept trying to convince himself that he had her blood and her meat, but he just wanted to see the end of the dance.
She performed newer and newer figures, figures that no school and no ballet teacher had ever before imagined. This attitude, though, slowly turned into a marveling and irrepressible curiosity.
It was the start of autumn; the sun was strong but beginning to fade and there were brief, warm showers that made a happy rainbow over the wet, sunny fields. She then repeated the steps, andri that she might lose Weight Exercise some power and beauty by repeating them.
And the wolf would follow her as quickly as he could, not to miss anndric any part of the dance movement.
Who knows if this world, since its beginnings, has ever seen what the modest and nameless woods above the Sloping Meadows saw that day? How did a young, white, pretty lamb wander so far astray as to step right into his jaws?
For a few anvric the shepherds stood like stones because of this wonder, but then they awoke.
Aska and the Wolf
The wolf waited and watched, and he started to come closer, and in front of her all doors to classical ballet were closing and the voice of her teacher became more and more faint, eventually disappearing. The younger one had tied the back legs of the wolf together and easily dragged his bloody, long body down the hill. Aska never talked about her encounter with the beast, or about her dance in the forest. In school, Aska was clever and progressed quickly.
For his victim, there were strange, unexpected moments, somewhere between mortal horror into which she had entered and the unbearable, bloody, final fact hidden behind the word, death.

Her last movement would only be dance. The older shepherd reloaded his musket, and the younger one took his bludgeon in both of his hands tracking the bloody trail. And in vain she tried to remember something more that she could do to overcome the event that awaited her at the end. Aska finished the first class of ballet school with the highest marks and was about to begin the second class.
The shepherds ran to find Aska unconscious.
Aska lived happily thereafter; she became a world-class ballerina, and she died at a ripe old age. The older one was carrying the white lamb.
Aja sharply admonished her otherwise well-behaved, intelligent, and beautiful daughter. When Aska came to the tree line, suddenly changing the character and ajdric rhythm of her dance, and the wolf was still standing in the field, turned sideways to the observers, the older shepherd asks off his musket, aimed, and fired. Her mother, teary and happy, fussed over her daughter, and all the sheep and rams gathered around to witness the wonder.
Finally, what would the rest of the sheep community say if they heard that her daughter had taken just such a path?

She knew but one thing: The back of his body was now completely deadened, but he pawed the ground with his front legs, rolling his head and baring his fangs. Thinking like this, the wolf followed the lamb, stopping when she stopped and moving whenever she speeded up the movements of the dance.
Taken by the freshness of the day and the beauty of the delicious grass, she journeyed to the far edge of the beech woods and even into them.
