Writing

I like a children’s story called “Black Beauty”. The Chinese name is “黑骏马”. This is a story about the whole life of a horse named Black Beauty. He was a beautiful black horse and grew up in a noble family. After being well trained, he had his first master. Beauty was gentel and smart, he even saved his mistress’s life by his fast and non-stopping running, so the master family liked him very much. But not for long, Beauty had to be sold because of the changes of his host family. After that, Beauty had several masters, some treated him very rudely, but some treated him as friend. In a word, he experienced the ups and downs of horse life. Luckily, Beauty finally returned to his first master and lived happily with them.
