The Third Wish
Then, in a moment that none of them would ever forget, every being in the forest rushed fearlessly from places of safety and hiding, with teeth bared and talons ready, beaks and wings and bodies bared. Not knowing what they were fighting didn’t stop the creatures of the forest. Swarming and rallying around the ancient tree, they pounced and pummelled its invisible assailant with all their might, risking their defenceless, brave lives.
