Once Upon A Time...

There was a bear who had been enchanted into a man - a sad man. He lived in one room and within a smaller room inside that room, as his head was the only space both small enough and large enough for him - and his heart was in the corridor outside the room, occasionally looking in.

At the same time, in another land, there was an ogre who probably lived in similar circumstances, though little is known of his dwelling places there.

Then one rainy night, when the ogre was in the bear's land, the two met. Like most monsters, they were lonely for the company of and afraid of other creatures, at the same time, but the ogre eventually spoke to the bear and there was happiness.

For a while.
