watership down ◆ prologue part III

"My friend," said Frith, "have you seen El-ahrairah? For I wish to give him a gift."

"No, I have not seen him."

So, Frith said, “Come out, and I will bless you instead.”

"No, I cannot. I am busy. The fox and weasel are coming. If you want to bless me, you will have to bless my bottom. "

"Very well. Be it so."

And El-ahrairah’s tail grew shining white, and it flashed like a star, and his back legs grew long and powerful. He tore across the hill faster than any creature in the world.

"All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies. And whenever they catch you, they will kill you…But first, they must catch you…digger, listener, runner, Prince with the swift warren. Be cunning and full of tricks…and your people will never be destroyed."
