One day she followed them into the woods, but her little legs could not keep up and she soon lost her way. It became dark, and still she wandered, lost and hungry. Finally she cried herself to sleep, curled in the roots of a Weir Tree. As the moon rose over the forest, wild creatures of the night crept out of hiding and surrounded her, snuffling and wondering would she be good to eat?

A Wild Cat was just about to pounce on Little Red to take a bite, when out from the thicket leapt a Dire Wolf, sigil of the House Stark. The Dire Wolf snarled at the Cat, and soon chased it and the other night creatures away. It then looked at Little Red, perplexed at what a small Stark child would be doing at night so far from home.

As the sun rose, she rode on its back and it brought her to the edge of the forest near Winterfell, where it left her.
