A tale of the Tinker and his daughter Rowan. Their friend Fire keeps the wolves away, but as Tinker tells Rowan, “The fire is greedy. If we do not watch over it carefully, or if we feed it too much, the fire will become hungry for more. It will eat and eat and eat and grow into a monster which will eat everything in its path.” When Rowan goes missing, Tinker declares that Fire is no longer his friend. After searching the air, water and earth, Tinker finally relents and lights a fire. It is then he discovers Rowan is with the wolves. After he gives a special promise to the wolves, he is finally reunited with his daughter.
