"Well... This is interesting. I have a sudden urge to splash in some water and sing a song." He looks down from the tree and thinks to himself for a moment, a few random things that are unimportant, but the most important of all is flying. Walking to a edge of a branch, he dives off. And falls. He hits the ground, and looks around. "Well... That didn't work at all..."
You finally succeed in guiding the girl through the forest, and watch as she comes to the cabin. There's a scurrying sound inside, and after a while she goes through the door. You have a feeling you know what's going to happen next, so you do your best to fly over for a closer look.
Once you get there, the cabin seems a lot smaller than it did. As you take a few steps closer, you realize you've been returned to your normal form.
"Grandma, what big eyes you have!" you hear from inside the cabin. "Well of course, these coke-bottle glasses make them look enormous. I mean, all the better to see you with, my dear." "And grandma, I didn't know you had a snout like that. It's so big too!" Not the sharpest knife in the drawer, this one. "It's useful for tracking prey. Er, and smelling you, my dear." "And grandma, what--" "All right, you know what? I get the whole rule of three thing, but screw this. Let's get on with it already." "Oh, no, you aren't my grandma, you're a wolf! Are you going to eat me?" "You bet your tired old fairy tale I am."
Celestial felt a little bit silly for guiding the girl to the cottage now that the wolf was there. She really should have known this would happen but for some reason she got so caught up in solving the puzzle that she completely forgot about the way the fairytale ended. That or she did not think that the girl would actually be fooled by the wolf, like most sensible people. Oh well.
She flew in closer and peered into the window, glad to be back in her normal form once again, although she refrained from giving her wings an experimental flap in case she hit one of the others crowding around the window. As soon as the wolf got up to attack the girl, the mage rolled her eyes and stepped back, turning into her dragon form. She huffed and puffed and blew down the door with a well-aimed sonic shockwave, bringing it off its hinges.
She poked her head into the door.
"Okay, dude, seriously? Young girls for dinner? They're skinny,barely have any meat on them and always get saved in the nick of time by some guy, usually at the cost of your neck. Trust me, I'd know. How about we get away from here and grab a nice steak? I know a great restaurant which is fairly cheap and does the best rare sirloin this side of...wherever this is," she said in a casual, conversational tone.
Gelquie frowned as she turned back from a bird. So soon? She was really looking forward to the potential flights she could have as she could soar away on her winged fancies. Sure, she was ultimately more used to being human, but if she had known she would have had that short a time as a bird, she would've just flown her own way randomly to take in as much as possible.
The worst part was that now she had to act witness to this event with the wolf. This was utterly stupid. She could understand the girl just maybe not being that good with mazes, but how does a girl confuse her own grandmother with a wolf? Gelquie was highly tempted to just let the predictable event happen. She brought it upon herself, after all. ...But she'd probably lose the game then. And ultimately, she didn't really want to watch someone get eaten alive. Gelquie let out a disgrunted sigh and lifted her hand.
The sudden sound of a shotgun split the air in close proximity with the cabin, followed by the sound of laughing and a loud voice very excitably chattering about a wonderful opportunity for his lovely day of wolf hunting.

Hearing the sound of a wolf hunter approuching, only one thing went through Draco's mind.
"This better not be some good looking guy who is full of himself, possibly named Gaston..."
He's not really sure how, but he has a bag of popcorn in his hands. Looking around for a answer, he can't find any, so he begins to eat it. Bumping the bag into a few of the others to see if they wanted any.
Celestial was standing in the doorway, so he couldn't go in that way. There was a window nearby, looking into an empty kitchen. Nobody seemed to crowding it yet, so Amneiger put both hands on the window and pulled.
It moved upwards a fraction of a centimeter before stopping. Locked.
He'd pay for the window later. He dashed to the edge of the trees, grabbed the sturdiest-looking branch he found on the ground, and ran back. Amneiger gripped it like a baseball bat and swung.
The window shattered inwards, scattering glass onto the floor inside. Amneiger swept the branch along the windowsill, brushing away any more glass, before climbing inside.
The girl was still standing there, staring at the wolf with an expression of shock on her face. She hadn't even turned to look at the sound of glass breaking. Amneiger pulled out his dazzler with one hand and tapped her on the shoulder with the other.
"Why don't we run out the door right now."
He spoke much of the sciences – of electricity and psychology — and gave exhibitions of power which sent his spectators away speechless, yet which swelled his fame to exceeding magnitude. And where he went, rest vanished; for the small hours were rent with the screams of nightmare. Men advised one another to see Nyarlathotep, and shuddered.

Kristy the Boo stood at a window, sulking. She had liked being a bird, and was sorry it was over. The Wolf and Little Red were chatting.
"Huh, I coulda sworn I've seen this before, or read it. Doesn't Little Red and Granny get eaten, and then cut out of the Wolf's stomach alive? Ewwwwwww! Ooh, popcorn."
Kristy took a piece of popcorn out of the bag Draco was proffering, watching the chaos that was beginning to unfold around her, Celestial was now a dragon, a wolf hunter was coming, Amneiger was in the house. She smiled, maybe this would get fun.
Azalea looked around, a bit saddened by the loss of the bird form. Unfortunately it soon became apparent that there were more pressing matters. For one, Amneiger had just broken a window. For another, Celestial was a dragon. Azalea looked in and saw the wolf. Quickly she shrunk to bottlesize and flew in the window, all the while watching the wolf. He didn't look too malicious; in fact, he almost looked bored. Reverting to her normal size, she landed and approached.
Rahu fumed to himself, annoyed that he didn't get to assist in... leading the little girl to her potential doom. After realizing that, he smirked, reassuring himself that he was indeed the best person out of the bunch, as he didn't lead a girl to her doom. Nodding, he then fumed that he didn't even get to fly or anything, because he was too busy fuming about being turned into a bluebird and not a raven or something.
Sitting on a tree branch nearby the cottage, he watch the scene before him unfold as he tried to calm down, being careful not to get to interested in oh hey look, free food. He jumped down from the tree branch, and walked behind Draco, stealthily grabbing a handful of popcorn. He'll never know! MUWHAAHAHAHA!
In the depthss, no one can hear you sscream. Well they can, but it'ss really muffled.
