Shang, the wizard and an evil forest witch!

A myth submitted to the site by Sarah Walker

Many moons ago in a village called `Forest Pathway` was a sign that said, `Beware of ... the forest, of all that dwells here..` If you dare enter, you will not return! People knew a wicked witch dwelt not far from that sign, and kept well away.

In the village lived a mighty wizard. People were afraid for many years until a brave man called Shang finally went to ask the great wizard for help. Shang expected to be sent away as you would think wizards would have much more important things to do! But he said yes, and whispered one word into Shangs ear.

The moment the sun was in the sky and that second the wizard died; but how? Shang knew he had put all of his magic and soul into the spell word to save the village and this had killed him. The village mourned his death for 100 days.....
