The burning stick landed on Wood and Wood swallowed it up. The fire got trapped inside of Wood and glowed like a furnace. The Fire Beings circled around Wood, begging him to give the fire back. Wood ignored them. They struggled to get their fire back. They tried banging Wood on the ground and throwing him in the air, but Wood refused to give up the fire. The Fire Beings were defeated and slowly trudged back up the mountain.
The animals gathered around Wood, wondering how they were going to convince Wood to give up his fire. Clever Coyote knew how to get fire out of Wood. He took Wood to the village, and showed the Humans how to make fire by rubbing Wood against another stick.
From then on, the Humans had fire in all four seasons. They could warm their homes and cook their food. The Humans appreciated Coyote's help because now they were safe during the deadly freezing winter.
