This is the beginning of the story, and it needs to introduce the key parties—Jade Dragon and her children—as well as set the preconditions for their conflict.
To do that it uses a couple of special mini-loops
For each party the snippet:
- Introduces them with a statement of fact.
- Describes their baseline behaviour (deciding when the rains come vs helping mother with her work).
- Describes their baseline emotional state (proud vs good and kind).
At the very end a relationship is created between the two parties, because the behaviour of the children is a trigger for the mother (they fly and she feels proud).
