Prince with Animal Following

The relationship that me and my two brothers have with the animals started one day when we went out hunting. We had gone some way through a thick wood when we came upon a grey wolf and her three cubs. Just as we went to shoot, the wolf said, “Don't shoot me, and I will give one of my cubs to each of you. They will be faithful friends to you.”

We agreed, and went on our way with a little wolf following each of us. The same thing happened with a lioness and her cubs, a fox, a hare, a boar, and a bear. Now we have quite a few friends padding along behind us!
