Dragon Slayer

There was once a huge dragon in China who went from village to village killing cattle and dogs and
chicken and people indiscriminately. So the villagers called upon a wizard to help them in their distress.
The wizard said, “I cannot slay the dragon myself, for magician though I am, I am too afraid. But I shall
find you the one who will.”
With that he transformed himself into a dragon and took up position on a bridge so everyone who did not
know it was the wizard was afraid to pass. One day, however, a traveler came up to the bridge, calmly
climbed over the dragon, and walked on.
The wizard promptly took on human shape again and called to the person, “Come back, my friend – I
have been standing here for weeks waiting for you!”
