The story starts in…20,000 BC where two children, a girl age nine and a boy age six, stroll to the edge of a marsh. They wear tight-fitting material that shimmers in the bright sun, and their shoes are off revealing webbed toes. The children explore the area. In thick foliage, they hear whimpering from small, brown, wolf-like pups with stripes similar to a zebras. The girl takes one of the pups. The loud angry cry of an animal frightens the children. They see in the distance a full-sized wolf standing upright on its rear feet. The wolf drops on all fours and begins chasing them. Fear registers on their faces. The howling wind drowns out their distressed cries. The girl sets the pup on the ground, and they dash up a hill running for their lives. The wolf is sure to catch the slower boy. The girl stops and bravely faces the approaching menace. Almost as if in slow motion, the wolf is closer to her…closer…ever closer. The wolf cry’s Arrrrrk! Arrrrrk! She can see white fangs. The wolf’s eyes flare wide…closer…
In current times, a seventeen year old girl on an archeological dig finds the children’s footprints left from 20,000 BC. The footprints become the discovery of the Century.
What happened to the children from so long ago?
