The Magical Herd

The Rainforest


Aazhaer stopped in her tracks. "This is weird..." she said quietly. The rainforest had frozen over. Icicles hung from the trees, the streams of water had frozen solid, the ground crunched with a fresh snowfall. The mare shivered as her breath came out as a puff of smoke in the chill air.

You both pause in the silence of the place.

Suddenly there was a crunching of snow and a tinkling of ice. A green mare bounded out from the trees with a sprig of holly in her mane.

The mare didn't stay long, and bounded out of sight in a shower of snowflakes. Aazhaer started laughing as the snow started to melt, drip by icy drip.

"That was Keiy. One of several Christmas leagi in this rainforest. They have quite an effect on the climate, do they not?"

You nod, recalling that you'd met a few before this one. There was the white stallion, and the entire family of reindeer-horned ones. You were amazed to see the greeness of the leaves when the snow finally faded away. The forest had not been damaged by the temporary deep freeze.
