FICTION: How The Sun, Moon, Fire and Water Came Into Existence.

A long time ago, the world was in total darkness. There was neither water nor fire. Men lived in this condition for a long time because of King Eagle, who was the custodian of the sun, moon, stars, water and fire, had bullied them into accepting that situation.

Meanwhile, Eagle had a charming daughter who had fallen in love with Crow - a handsome spotless white bird. As their friendship grew stronger, Crow got to know what Eagle was keeping away from men. On one of this visit, therefore, he secretly stole Eagle's hidden treasure that consisted of light, water and fire and flew away with it.

As soon as he got outside, he hanged the sun in the sky. Instantly, the whole world was brilliantly lit up. When the sun set, he fixed the moon and spread the stars around it. Then the darkness of the night began to lift. He was so thrilled by his achievement that he glided and swerved in a beautiful display in the sky. While he was doing this, the water fell to the ground and formed rivers, lakes and streams.

He still held fast unto the fire in his beak. Suddenly some strong and violent winds blew smoke from the fire over Crow's beautiful feathers. The smoke made the feathers jet-black leaving a band of white feathers around his neck.
