Later in Chapter Six: I finally found a little peace for myself when I decided that all the crying and misbehaving would not bring Ring back, for he was gone somewhere else. But I knew in my mind that Ring was in a dark place that he couldn't get out of. I also knew there was nothing I could do to help him out of that bad place.
One night I had just moved into my window as the echo of the owl was fading out when I heard a wolf howl up on Wall Creek. I thought, "Ring is coming home!"
While I was convinced Ring would soon be home, circumstances were making that impossible for the immediate future.
