The Legend of The Dancing Trees by catch---22 The Legend of The Dancing Trees by catch---22
Kalil's attention soon turned to four trees that were bent and twisted in a strange way.

"Grandpa, why are those trees twisted like that?"

"Those are the dancing trees," his grandfather said.

"Why do they call them that?"

"Well the legend says that during the full moon, if a person has no evil, they can see them dance...

...a long, lobg time ago, when our people were still slaves, there were four slave women that decided they didn't want to be slaves no more. Now these weren't no ordinary women. They knew magic. So late one night, when the moon was full, they set out."

Somehow, the slave catchers got after them and chased them to these very woods. Now these four women were trapped, the slave catchers behind them and the river in front of them. So those women built themselves a fire and they began to chant and dance around that fire. The slave catchers could see the fire from a distance and they could see the women dancing around it, so they closed in. By the time they reached this spot though, the women were no where to be found. The legend says they turned themselves into those four trees there."
