Silvia: Tío tío. Tell me a story like never before.
Henry: Hmm. What type of story would you like, Silvia?
Silvia: Tell me of when before civilization was alive.
Henry: Mmmmm. I’m not sure about that. I only know one story and it indeed is very long.
Silvia: Pleasseeee pretty. Pleasseeeee pleaaasse.
Henry: Hmph. Ugh. Fine, you cute little brat.
Once upon a time. Millions and millions of years ago. When the earth was just a little seed.
There was said to be a beautiful maiden deity. Who appeared out of nowhere and planted an unknown treasure inside of the seed. It is Said that for many years she wandered through our universe. Looking for a liveable planet but couldn’t find any.
The more she wandered. The more desperate she became. So she began retracing her steps. All over the universe.
Until she had found a planet. Where colorful plants thrived. There were animals beyond your wildest imagination.
She had come to a standstill. She sensed some familiarity. As though she’s been there before as she contemplated her new home.
Something lively was lurking in the back. Slowly approaching her. As she turned around. She saw 4 people arise from a bush.
It was said that the appearance of all 4 were very different. Yet very similar. It would be hard to tell their ages, as they looked dissimilar in age.
As they approached her. They didn’t speak a sound. All they did was observe her. The deity saw the 4 as no threat. So she kept exploring the planet. Untouched. Brand new. Beauty.
As she traveled through the planet. She named the fruits. Animals. Mountains. Rivers. As life progressed the deity heard the 4 followers speak and communicate. At that moment she decided to name them The Morphed 4. Higher beings of the planet.
One day. After many moons of venturing the planet. She had came across something that looked like a giant tree to others. but she had realized it was the hidden treasure she had hidden eons’ ago.
This energy. That looked like a giant tree. Was actually a whispering wind tree that the maiden deity had left. It is said once she found what she was looking for. She told the morphed 4 to cultivate the lands. Make a beautiful garden. While she took a quick slumber.
They of course. Without a doubt. Obeyed her wishes. They started to cultivate the beautiful lands.
As time passed. The morphed 4 began to feel something inside them continuously morphing. They began to feel new emotions such as greed, envy, obsession, love etc…
The saying goes that they all started out with love.
As a by product of their love. They began to reproduce their own seed.
But with the more time the maiden slept. The more the Morphed changed. One became obsessive. Then another greedy. And finally one let envy corrupt itself.
As time went on. the morphed 4 came to a conclusion individually. Everyone came to an acknowledgment that the maiden will not awaken in their lifetime. As time went on some declared war on others.
2 generation passed.
Suddenly, a red ray of light was shining upon the earth for 7 days and 7 nights. It was at first, believed to be the end of the world. But on that 7th night. 3 large, skinny, long old people descended from the red beam. As they were stepping out of the sky.
One of them said.
Where is she.
