The Story of Rabbit

A long time ago, no one knows how long ago it was — rabbit was a brave and fearless warrior. Rabbit was befriended by EyeWalker, a witch. The witch and Rabbit spent much time together sharing and talking.

One day EyeWalker and rabbit were walking along and the sat down on the trail to rest. Rabbit said "I'm thirsty." EyeWalker picked up a leaf and blew on it, it turned into a gourd of water, he handed it to Rabbit. Rabbit drank the water and didn't say anything. Than he said "I am hungry"

EyeWalker picked up a stone and blew on it, it turned into a turnip. She gave the turnip to Rabbit. He tasted it and than ate the turnip with relish, but didn't say anything.

The two continued along the trail, which led into the mountains. Near the top, rabbit tripped and fell and rolled almost to the bottom. Rabbit was in very sad condition when EyeWalker got to him. She used a magick salve on Rabbit to heal his great pain and mend his broken bones. Rabbit didn't say anything.

Several days later EyeWalker went searching for her friend. She searched high and love but Rabbit was nowhere to be found.

Finally EyeWalker gave up. She met Rabbit quite by accident one day. "Rabbit, why are you hiding and avoiding me?" the witch asked.

"Because I am afraid of you. I am afraid of magick," Answered Rabbit, cowering in fear. "Leave me alone!"

"I see." Said EyeWalker. "I have used my magical powers on your behalf and now you turn on me and refuse my friendship."

"I want nothing more to do with you or your powers," Rabbit countered. He did not even see the tears his words were bringing to EyeWalker’s eye's. "I hope we never meet and that I never see you again." Rabbit continued.

"Rabbit" EyeWalker said. "We once were great friends and companions, but no more. It is within my power to destroy you, but because of the past and the medicines we have shared together I will not do this. But from this day on I lay a curse on you and your tribe. From now on, you will call fears and your fears will come to you. Be on your way, for the sweet medicines that bound us together as friends are now broken."
