THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD

FABLE

When the earth was made, the four gods of the world met together for the first time in the center of the earth. They wanted to make things resembling to them, so they thought it was time to create the earth before gods form other worlds took control over it.
In the meeting, each one had to say their characteristics. The god of the water said: “I represent transparency and honesty”.
Then, the god of the wind said: “I balance harmony among things, whenever you have problems, call me and I will appear as soon as I can”.
The third god, the god of the earth said to them: “I’ll give life and fertility but only if I have your help and I represent prosperity”.
And finally the god of the fire told them: “My characteristic is bravery, but my nature is very impolite”.
At first the god of the fire recognized his impoliteness but then he realized how powerful he could be, so he started destroying what the water, the earth and the wind tried to make together. Unhappy, the three gods went with him and said: “You will live under the earth, that way you won’t cause danger anymore”.
After that, the three gods started creating a new nature. The water, the earth and the wind occupied their own territories. When they were occupying their territories the god of the earth said to the god of the water: “I allow your entry to my territory but only in the form of channels and deposits no bigger than me”. The water said to the air: “You will enter to my territory only if we fusion, that way you can help me create my living beings, I will help you too”.
The fire also wanted to have his own creations, but as he was living under the earth, he grew downwards, and he created the nucleus of the earth.
Once the eyes of the universe saw how enthusiastically the gods were creating new things, he said to the sun and to the moon:
“Your mission is that you, emperor Sun and you empress Moon, help the gods of the Earth”.
The god of the air let the soldiers of the sun enter to the earth because that was the only way the sun could have access to it.
After one day of working together, the moon and the water fell in love, so when the moon had to move, the water followed her.
With the support of the sun, the animals of the earth appeared, and the earth gave them plants to eat. And the earth created flowers to thank the Sun for his help.
The water created a great diversity of fishes to fill his wide territory, and created the starfish to thank the moon for her love and support.
The air created the birds, and only by the allowance of the god of the water and the god of the earth, they could descend to feed from their creations.
The god of the wind traveled all over the world to take small parts of the god of the water and the god of the earth to go all over the world. And when the god of the fire saw he couldn’t contribute, he concentrated all his forces to escape from the mountains under the water and the earth.
And so it is today, the living things in Earth are constantly evolving thanks to the help of the gods and the emperors.

Fable

Once upon before time ever existed, and everything was just a whole big moment, in a faraway land, so beautiful and diverse that the desserts, rain forests, and the tundra where all nearby, lived in a very tall oak tree a numerous owl family. But one misfortunate stormy day that the wind blew strong and the rain poured heavy on their feathers, a lighting strike this same tree and fell, leaving one tiny owl creature the only survivor.
Having no family and no one who took care of him, mother nature choose a variety of candidates to make up for little owls family.

First little owl was send to live with Mr. Eagle, Mr. Eagle was a also a bird like him, he could fly into the sky and dive and hunt, all the eagles had one very special talent, and was that of their sharp vision that could detect any movement from over 2 kilometers to the ground. Little owl had an incredible vision too, but only in the night, the sun rays made it difficult for him even to open his eyes, and as hard as he tried to opened them and as many books as he read to learn he just couldn’t be as the eagles, and realized could never be one of them, so he asked mother nature to relocate him with a different family.

This time little owl was sent to Mr. Bat`s family, bats where almost blind, and hunted only in the night, little owl liked this a lot, but there was a small detail that made little owl feel as he didn’t belong; bats ate mostly fruit.
Little owl, tried to like it at first, but he didn’t, and he suddenly realized this wasn’t the food meant for owl, and as hard as he tried to like it and as many books as he read to learn. He just couldn’t be like the bats, so he asked Mother Nature to relocate them with a different family.

Little owl was sent to Mr. rattlesnake`s family, rattlesnakes liked to hunt at night and they would have the same dish just as little owl wished, and as they hunted they would slide along the ground and make that hissing sound before attacking their prays. Little owl tried also to slide graciously in the ground and he shook and cried to make that hissing sound, but all that came out of his mouth was a hoot! hoot!, little owl felt like an outsider again so tried to hiss, but as hard as he tried and as many books he read to learn, he just could be like the snakes, so he again told mother nature to relocate him with a different family again.

Life went like this for little owl, as he went on and on with different families until he then became one smarty Mr. Owl. It was then that he realized he couldn’t be as the other animals, he was unique, he was meant to read books and be wise, so later on, life for Mr. Owl was so much easy, he became a teacher and spread his wisdom through the entire kingdom and all the animals came to him for advice on how to be better selves.
