Beware of the Crooked Tree on old Thrall Road. Only the dead birds roost there, and dead children smile among the roots. Old spirits are often slow to die and bitter. The Crooked Tree is the bitter almonds of cynaide kisses and branches with strangler's hands. Do go out on Trall Road when the moan is full and the wind is mournful. That is when the Crooked Tree beckons and many will not return.
This was something you needed to know.
