The Water Giant has always lived in the Pacific Ocean. He gets very angry with people if they invade his territory.

One day, Wang, a 10 year old Japanese boy, swam out to sea 10 miles. The Water Giant got angry with the boy and told him to leave. Wang refused to go to shore. The waves began to grow higher and the wind picked up. The boy still was brave and didn't go to land. The Water Giant now was screaming with anger. But the boy kept on swimming. Then all of a sudden an enormous wave came and flooded most of Japan.

Japan used to be a big country that strecthed to Hawaii. Now Japan is smaller than the U.S. state of Texas.
