Little Brother is a novel by Cory Doctorow, published by Tor Books. It was released on April 29, The novel is about four teenagers in San Francisco who.
Our stepmother beats us every day, and whenever we come near her she kicks us away with her feet. Hard leftover crusts of bread are our food. The little dog under the table is better off, for she often throws it a good morsel. God have mercy, if our mother were to know about this. Come, let us go away together into the wide world. They walked the whole day over meadows, fields, and stones.
And when it rained the little sister said, "God and our hearts are crying together! In the evening they came to a large forest, and they were so tired from sorrow and hunger and from the long walk that they climbed into a hollow tree and fell asleep. The next day when they awoke the sun was already high in the sky and shone hotly down into the tree. Then the brother said, "Sister, I am thirsty.
If I knew of a little spring I would go and get a drink. I think I hear one. Now the wicked stepmother was a witch, and she had seen how the two children had gone away, and had secretly crept after them, as witches do, and she had bewitched all the springs in the woods. They found a spring, glistening as it ran over the stones. The brother was about to drink from it, but his sister heard how its rushing sound said, "Whoever drinks from me will become a tiger. Whoever drinks from me will become a tiger.
Then the sister cried out, "Please, brother, do not drink, or you will become a wild animal and tear me to pieces.
The brother did not drink, although he was very thirsty, but said, "I will wait for the next spring. When they came to the second spring the sister heard it say as well, "Whoever drinks from me will become a wolf.
Whoever drinks from me will become a wolf. Then the sister cried out, "Please, brother, do not drink, or you will become a wolf and eat me up. The brother did not drink, and said, "I will wait until we come to the next spring, but then I must drink, say what you will, for I am very thirsty.
When they came to the third spring the sister heard how its rushing sound said, "Whoever drinks from me will become a deer. Whoever drinks from me will become a deer. But the brother had already knelt down by the spring, leaned over, and drunk from the water.
As soon as the first drops touched his lips he lay there in the form of a young deer. Now the sister cried over her poor bewitched brother, and the deer cried also, sitting sadly next to her.
She took off her golden garter and put it around the deer's neck. Then she picked some rushes and wove them into a soft cord. This she tied to the little animal and led it onward, walking deeper and deeper into the woods. After they had walked a long, long way they finally came to a little house. The girl looked in, and because it was empty, she thought, "We can stay here and live.
She found leaves and moss to make a soft bed for the deer. Every morning she went out and gathered roots, berries, and nuts for herself, and brought tender grass for the little deer, who ate out of her hand, and was contented and played around about her. In the evening, when the sister was tired and had said her prayers, she laid her head on the deer's back for a pillow, and gently fell asleep.
If only the brother had had his human form, it would have been a wonderful life. For some time they were alone like this in the wilderness. Then it happened that the king of the country held a great hunt in these woods.
The blasts of the horns, the barking of the dogs, and the merry shouts of the huntsmen sounded through the trees. The little deer heard this and wanted ever so much to be with them. I cannot resist it any longer. I must lock the door to keep the wild huntsmen out. To let me know that it's you, knock and say, 'My little sister, let me in. Then the young deer jumped away. He felt so good and was so happy to be in the open air.
The king and his huntsmen saw the beautiful animal and started after him, but they could not catch him, and whenever they thought that they surely had him, he jumped away over the bushes and disappeared.
The next day the hunt began anew, and when the little deer again heard the hunting horn and the huntsmen's shouts, he could not resist, but said, "Sister, open the door for me. I must be off. His sister opened the door for him, saying, "But this evening you must be here again and say the password.
When the king and his huntsmen again saw the young deer with his golden collar, they all chased after him, but he was too fast and nimble for them.
And so it went the entire day, but as evening fell, the huntsmen had surrounded him, and one of them wounded him a little in the foot, causing him to limp. Slowly, he ran away.
A huntsman crept after him to the little house and heard how he called out, "My little sister, let me in," and saw that someone opened the door for him, and then immediately shut it again. The huntsman took notice of all this, then went to the king and told him what he had seen and heard. The little sister, however, was terribly frightened when she saw that her young deer was wounded. She washed the blood off him, applied herbs, and said, "Go to bed, my sweet deer, so that you will get well again.
But the wound was so slight that the next morning the deer no longer felt it. And when he again heard the merry sound of the hunt outside, he said, "I cannot resist it. I must be there. They'll never get me. Crying, the sister said, "This time they will kill you, and I will be alone in the woods, forsaken by the whole world.
I will not let you out. Then the sister could not help herself, and with a heavy heart she unlocked the door for him. The deer vigorously and joyfully bounded off into the woods. When the king saw him he said to his huntsmen, "Chase after him all day long and into the night, but take care that no one does him any harm. As soon as the sun had set the king said to the huntsman, "Now come and show me the little house in the woods.
The door opened, and the king walked in, and there stood a girl who was more beautiful than any girl he had ever seen. The girl was frightened when she saw that it was not her deer, but a man wearing a golden crown on his head who came in. However, the king looked kindly at her, reached out his hand to her, and said, "Will you go with me to my castle and be my dear wife?
