The horse thrashed and stumbled, but soon found itself in aclearing at the forest center. Drooping its head to rest and drinkfrom a stream, the horse was surprised by a voice. "What have wehere? A runaway?" It was a wizard, one of those elusive forestdwellers the horse had only heard stories about. "You've sufferedgreatly, I can see," said the kindly wizard. Perhaps a bit of magicwould give you a new future." The horse suddenly felt an itch inthe center of its head. It dipped its head again toward the waterand was startled when the moon suddenly revealed its reflection inthe placid stream. A long, swirling horn had appeared! The wizardpatted the surprised horse on its back. "What shall we call you?The very first of a new breed. How about a unicorn?"
