Twisted Fairy Tales: The Crane Wife

He was barely a man when he took in the injured crane and nursed it back to health, knowing it would be a bad omen to let it die. When he let it go, he thought that was the end of it. But the crane came back in the form of a beautiful woman. He recognised her at once and married her. A good deed deserves a reward, he reasoned, and made her use her magic to do his weaving for him. Soon, they’re rich; but the crane wife, forced to use magic against her will, grows sicker with each passing day.
