In Terry Town, there's a valley that got called Sleepy Hollow because of the peace it had. The people in there believed in many ghost stories, the most famous story is "Headless Horseman", a soldier that got killed at war with getting his head cut. He appears every night and goes back to his grave before the daylight.
His name is Ichabod Crane, the only schoolmaster in the town, because of this he's respected by everyone. He lived every week on a different farm and every night he went to have dinner on any of his student's house because their moms cooked good and had pretty older sisters. Crane enjoyed ghost stories but got too scared so he sang psalms during the night.
Katrina is a young 18-year-old lady, unique daughter of a farmer who's rich. Ichabod fell in love with Katrina at first sight, thinking about that he wouldn't have to work again in his entire life. He felt so happy that he wanted to marry Katrina.
A Terrible Race
Every young man admires Katrina, but one of them was extremely handsome, this guy is named Brom Bones. Katrina's family was happy with Ichabod, but Brom Bones got mad (as he wanted Katrina), so he decided to do things that scared Ichabod, like moving everything at the school. There's a party at Katrina's farm, everyone in town went.
Ichabod was totally excited with the party, he got well dressed for his love and decided to ride a horse called Gunpowder. At the party, they both danced, but the young and beautiful Katrina ends up kissing Brom Bones.
Ichabod leaves the party on his horse, crossing the forest with just the company of it. He was totally scared, everything he saw was scary. At a moment, he encounters a tree and screams with the belief that is the Headless Horseman. He starts to chant along until he sees a shadow and Gunpowder starts to ger crazy, running immediately. The Headless Horseman was really there and Ichabod starts to race beside him.
