One Hundred Years ago, Da-A-Fu's ancestors lived in a cold barren place. Despite that, they worked very hard to keep living on the mountain. They built homes and made jackets to keep warm. One night that all changed.
One night it rained pearls! When the pearls fell the ancestors said "Jewels from the moon" When the pearls hit the ground they disappeared. The ancestors rushed out to collect all of the jewels from the moon!
The next morning the ancestors realized that the pearls that disappeared were actually seeds. They then planted the pearls they collected, later that night it rained again. After that they were not foolish and waited the next day.
The seeds somehow were magically watered and were growing each day into the beautiful yellow flowers and silver trees. Night after night the pearls kept falling down to the earth and making the beautiful trees
Now, the mountain is filled with beautiful silver trees and yellow flowers. It still rains night after night and the mountain will keep getting more beautiful night after night.
