Once upon a time there lived a small doggie who loved everything romance, including the color red. One day she was romping through the woods in her red cape, when an Alien appeared from outer space. "Hello, little red riding hood," he said.
"Um, actually, my name is Sallie Marie."
"Ah, my mistake."
"That's ok. Say, what big eyes you have, Alien," Sallie said, staring into black, triangular depths.
He smiled. "The better to see you with, my dear."
Sallie blushed. "Aww. That is so romantic! Do you like the color red?"
"Oh, yes. In fact I have a red smoking jacket that I'm rather fond of. "
Sallie jumped for joy. "Yay! We should be best friends!"
And so they went playing in the woods. Becuase if a girl isn't afraid of Aliens, she certainly isn't afraid of puny wolves.
