Jason Chang was the son of a village chief, a young boy that always did whatever he could for people. He could often be seen fetching wood, fixing things or doing whatever he could to help his neighbours. Our story begins on the day that Jason decided to capture a horse for himself. Now wild horses can be found roaming freely in the forests in some places; and Jason’s village was near to one of them. Jason had decided long before that he needed a horse to help with some of his chores around the village and to ride in whatever spare time he had left.
The day seemed perfect for horse catching, the sun was shining brightly overhead; the birds sang. If you listened carefully, you could even hear the tiny voices of fairies laughing as they danced around the trees. To top all of this; he had even seen the perfect beast the day before, wandering aimlessly amongst the trees.
Jason searched the forest with a song in his heart and it did not take long before he came across her grazing in a clearing. There she was gleaming in the morning sun, as white as snow on a winter’s morning and dazzling to the eye. It was hard to see her properly as her coat reflected the sun into Jason's eyes, blinding him with its brilliance. She wandered over to him then. Jason marvelled at how tame she seemed, and after tying a loop of rope loosely around her neck he began to lead her home.
Suddenly the sky darkened ominously, as the first storm clouds gathered over the forest. A cruel wind whooshed through the trees whipping the branches across his face. Protecting himself as best he could, he ran to seek shelter; as an awful storm raged through the forest. The horse also ran, galloping as fast as she could; the wild wind howled through the trees around them. Her hooves thumped thunderously into the dark depths of the forest as they ran for safety.
That cruel wind whooshed through the forest; it picked up trees and hurled them at him with deadly accuracy. This storm seemed to have a mind of its own, as if it were somehow enchanted. Jason knew that he had to seek shelter and quickly, or he may fall victim to the terrible force of that demonic storm.
Jason ran through the trees as that wicked wind whooshed behind him. As he ran on, the horse forgotten in that moment, he saw a hope of escape and turned to run toward it. The wild weather seemed to become more furious and seemed to even chase after him, throwing giant fir trees at the frightened boy. Jason ran toward a tree-stump as mighty trees rained in his wake. His foot got caught on an exposed root and he fell suddenly to the forest floor.
