‘Be the wolf’ By Kailah Peters

The patient is sick – on the verge of dying. The patient reaches out to hold your hand and asks for a story. They say it doesn’t have to be good, in fact, they’d prefer it bad. The patient wants a story with no happy ending. So, you begin to tell the saddest story you can.
