The Magical Herd

The Rainforest


Breathing a sigh of relief, you pass by the fiery Kaylon. But it seems like you weren't going to be safe for long. A viscious leagus mare suddenly reared up and pounced forward.

"Gotcha!" she said. You lay on the ground, gasping for breath and trying to come to terms with the fact that you were not about to be eaten. "You ok?" she asks after a bit.

You nod and she helps you up. "Didn't mean to scare you like that. You didn't really think I'd eat you....did you? Sorry." You forgave her since she looked truly sorry. "I just wanted to play. My name is Zahayva. Rantha says that I'm quite the handful."

You think back at the leagi you had met so far, but none named Rantha came to mind.

"Oh, Rantha took care of me when I was just a filly. She was one of the original herd of the Pragosi Rainforest. She's not my mother, but I pretend she is. I don't actually know who my parents are, I never knew them. Rantha tells me something terrible happened and that's why they had to leave me. But Rantha took really great care of me. We played a lot."

"You know, if you'd like to visit her, you just have to follow that path over there. She's really nice and she doesn't pounce on visitors and scares them half silly." She gave you a sheepish look and you once again tell her that you forgive her. Mostly you were just shaken up over having met Kaylon. When she heard that she brightened.

"I've noticed he has that affect on strangers," she laughs. "He's a hot head, but pretty harmless.....most of the time anyway."
