Myths explain how natural events occurred and are set in really ancient times; before history even began. They are normally set a very long time ago such as when the world was being created. Myths may have gods and goddesses who have amazing powers to make extraordinary things happen. The word “Myth” actually comes from the Greek word “mythos” meaning “word of mouth.”
Legends are stories that people made up as well. However, legends are about real life people and what they did. Legends always have an important purpose, but the facts are always a little exaggerated to make them more interesting and exciting!
White, The Pegasus Of Rain
by Elif Akyazıcı and İris Göktan
In a dark night, a white and beautiful Pegasus came to her home; the woods.The only place she was safe from gods and goddesses that were trying to steal her power.She was ready to rest from a long tiring day.Her life was going to change a lot but before I can tell you that story I must tell you this story of how she became a pegasus.
It was a normal day of running from god’s hunting for food, the white horse was exhausted. She wanted to go home and rest. Right when the tired horse was going to go to sleep, she heard a sudden movement in the bush. First, she tried to ignore it but she kept hearing the voice. It sounded like a girl was trying to get its attention. She stopped, trying to ignore it, but she heard the movement whispering “ I have something to show you”. She went in the bush and she couldn’t believe her eyes.
She was so frightened because she saw a little girl alone on the island of dark.The little girl looked scared.The horse just wanted to save the poor little girl. But the problem was that the girl was in the sky. White couldn’t do it even if she tried. “She is a poor little girl. I need to help her!” she thought and yet she jumped ready to lose herself to death.
Something weird happened. After that, she opened her eyes, she was not hurt. When she looked around, she was still at the same place. Also she had wings and she could make rain but she didn’t know yet.
While the White was going up, the little girl wondered “Who is that which looks like a weird horse but with wings?” When White came closer, the little girl shouted “Hello please help me! I am stuck on this island”. White asked the little girl “jump on my back”. and the little girl did that in a hurry.
