Nuwa Fixed The Sky
By Vickie Chao
  

1     Have you ever wondered why the sun, moon, and stars always move across the sky from east to west? Have you ever wondered why there are rainbows? This lovely Chinese myth answers both questions.
 
2     A long, long time ago, the god of water and the god of fire had an argument. After hours of fighting, the god of fire defeated the god of water. Feeling humiliated, the god of water hit Mountain Buzhou. Buzhou was not a usual mountain. It was so tall that it became the western pillar that supported the sky. When the god of water hit Mountain Buzhou, he snapped the pillar in half. Right away, the sky collapsed, and the earth cracked. Monsters, forest fires, and floods all came loose. People were miserable!
