It came out of no where...
No one knows where or how it came to be.
It came in the night, when all of the children lay asleep.
It came without warning, without coming into anyone's sight.
It came when all of the parents, elders and wiseman sat fighting and debating.
Dawn came, and the wise men, parents and the elders went to check on the children, to find they were all gone.
Reaped and stolen away right behind their backs, and no way of detecting the beast or any hope of fighting back.
Take this as a warning for you all to never let fighting distract you, for you never know that something might sneak up behind you and take it all.
