Now that it is spring, I have decided to venture out of my palace. Elsewhere the warm rays of the sun are melting snow and giving life to the flowers and trees. But this far up north, the only living things are the wolves that occasionally wander the abandoned plains. The faint sunlight that glistens on the snow is not enough to bring warmth, but merely teases beings with the false promise of heat.
