The Golden Nest

Tai was a blacksmith. He was making a horseshoe at his forge when someone pushed him hard. SPLASH! He fell into a trough of water.

When Tai looked up, he saw captain Batu, the biggest bully in the empire.


“The emperor’s crown was stolen because I fell asleep on guard duty,” Batu said.

“Do you know who took it?” Tai asked.

“A dragon,” Batu said. “I woke up as it was flying away. Now you’re going to track it down and get the crown back.”


“Me?” cried Tai. “Why should I go find it?”

“Because if you don’t, I’ll tell the emperor you stole it!” said Batu.

Tai knew Batu would carry out his threat. So he grabbed his trusty hammer and set out to find the emperor’s crown.
