So she quietly swift through the crowd of mothers and found herself right in front of her son, she spoke in a quiet voice trying to tell him who they are, and where the shower was but it was all in their language. The children understood right away though and asked for one of the mothers to direct them because of all the space taken up in the area. When they reached the shower they jumped right in and knocked their heads on the roof.

“OWWWW” said one of them.

“OWWWW” said another.

“Why is this roof so short?”

“Well, we are all very short and small so we made a roof not so high for us made out of clay, so it may be hard removing it from our shower area!” exclaimed the woman.

“Well then if we can’t change it we might just need to discover a new planet.”

“You're right but we need to gather many materials for it.”

So the children gathered many material that they could use to make something, they named it “The Spaceship” Everyone in the village thought that they were crazy and told them that it would never be possible but they never listened to what they said.

After a few weeks of hard working they were ready to leave. Their mothers packed some food for them but the rejected it because of they believed they would find something on their journey.

TITLE: Independence

MYTH: A long time ago, there was nothing but darkness. A powerful god named Eues created the foundation of Earth. He then created other gods, like Riviera, the god of colors, or Ajax, the god of the sun and moon. Eues made a castle in a planet where everyone lived called El Timaeus. Eues was a very influential and powerful god, and no one dared to object him. Suddenly, from the ground, trees and plants started to grow. Rivers started to flow. Then, Eues started to create other people. He scattered the people around the world. After that, he spawned animals in the planet so that the humans could eat and survive. After that, Eues and Riviera started to color the world. They made the leaves green, soil brown, water blue, etc. That is how the world came to be.

However, Eues hated the Pekkas as they wanted to rule the world. They were rebels, and they were against the gods. The Pekkas had troubled many people and the gods got furious and frustrated. The gods prepared their children in a likely situation of war. That was a very smart move from the gods. Soon, the Pekka army tried to invade El Timaeus. The gods and their children decided to fight back. The gods and their children battled the Pekka’s. The battle lasted for over 6 months when Luke, the son of Mapuche, the God of creation destroyed the “Apol”, which was a orb that energised the Pekka’s. However, the gods had planned to send the Pekka’s to Gucci, which was where evil monsters and people were sent. Mapuche repaired the orb and the Pekka’s were thrown in Gucci. Eues executed Luke for his sins, even though the other gods had suggested not to. Mapuche was very sad, and he created a cave and hid there. Eues was very mad and was going crazy, so he send his 2 powerful children, Gecko and Samsun to hunt him and to kill him. The humans started to riot and protest, so Eues went in his grand balcony, and summoned a strike of lightning! However, it backfired and the lightning hit his palace and it collapsed. El Timaeus was in shock and was on verge of getting destroyed. It was very chaotic, and there was too much of emotions. Suddenly, everything exploded. It was like a volcano, then everything became dark. Centuries later, a few gods created a new planet and called it Earth. That is the planet we are living in.

TITLE: The Ash-an-ti God.

MYTH: Once long ago there was darkness in the world. Then came a fruit from the sky, a man named “Ash-an-ti” emerged from it, when he stood up, he saw the world around him was dark. He lay down in darkness, cried and slept. His tears became the salty seas, the rivers and the lakes. He woke up the second day and saw the water bodies around him, then for the first time, he smiled, when he smiled, all the water bodies turned blue, also his smile made the trees and the fruits and he touched them, his touch made the fruits red and green and made all their colours. But he was still lonely, so with nothing to do, he went back to sleep. When he was sleeping, his breath transformed to the first humans. He awoke from his slumber and saw the humans, he named them Ba-ko-fo, which meant first beings.

Then the day passed he went back to bed and his happiness became the earth, the heaven, the otherworld, the sun moon and stars. But there wasn’t death so the humans felt lazy and Ash-an-ti didn’t like that, so Ash-an-ti spat out two spirits, he named them Oku-fo, which meant killing people. The Oku-fo were meant to take human lives who didn’t listen to Ash-an-ti, which they did for sometime. But the Oku-fo turned against Ash-an-ti and killed the people for disobeying themselves(Oku-fo). The Ash-an-ti found out what the Oku-fo spirits were doing and He went up to their home and said, “Oku-fo, please stop torturing the humans”, then the Oku-fo said “We shan’t stop it, we want all the power for ourselves, so unless you give us your power over the people we won’t stop torturing them”, Ash-an-ti was shocked by what they said. The Oku-fo noticed the expression Ash-an-ti made on his face after they had stopped speaking, and challenged Ash-an-ti to a duel(war), Ash-an-ti accepted the challenge. Unfortunately the duel(war) between the Ash-an-ti and the Oku-fo is still going on, and the Oku-fo still live up till today, and they take the lives of people who misbehave, and also they persuade people to steal and to do bad stuff.

After a lot of thinking he thought of making the planet earth, but once the planet the planet was made he thought this planet had feelings like he did so he made more and more planets and moons to be friends with the planet earth. But then he thought that it was getting a bit chilly and he needed warmth, so Glactumus created the sun. But after years of roaming these planets he thought he was a little lonely and had no one to care about. Glactumus made human beings that were meant to roam the earth, but then they got tired of roaming the earth they settled. When the human beings settled, Glactumus saw this and was not happy, so he created trees, grass, mountains, lakes, rain and all sorts of animals on the earth so they could explore more.

When all was good he went for a little holiday, but when he came back, he saw that the earth was to corrupted and full, so he thought of a good way to try to not have the earth corrupted, so with some hard thinking and some time he came up with idea of death. The humans were terrified when they saw their friends and family go in such a ‘what it seemed to be, abnormal’ way for their loved one go. So they buried them whenever it happened and they would have a party to Celebrate their loved ones. Years later he was roaming the earth and he noticed that the humans were dying fast because of the extremely hot sun.The only thing that was keeping them alive was the super thick ozone layer that was getting weaker every 1.3 second and he knew that was not going to keep up for much longer so he experimented on where the human civilisations that were on the earth would live, for a longer amount of time.he found a place that was 93 million miles from the sun that was unoccupied so he found a way to not harm the humans and get them to this spot and when he did all was well.

Odea, stayed on the earth protecting her duty. While Eion, the god of the humans followed the path Odea had made. When he arrived Odea didn't know what to do. She called upon Syfara, and her companions. Syfara made more gods to help poor Odea; The god of weather, Orion, The god of seasons Dexion, and the god of time Ytyx. Though when Ytyx was born, time had not been for Syfara. She was old, and passed away.
