“Excerpt from the Holy Book of the Abess of the Sacred Mercy…”

B

efore the first Auto-da-fé, and the ritual purge, when the world was young, the first critters that were born, were imperfect. Some were bigger, stronger or wiser than the others.

Battling against each other for survival, humans rose among the lesser beasts. They were considered among the weakest: bald hominids devoid of fangs and claws, but they soon learned to conquest and kill the others to provide for themselves, almost causing the ruthless extinction of every living beings that they considered inferior to them.

But many of the creatures, seeing that anihilation was close, cried to the heavens their fears and pain. So big was their cry to heaven, that the Mother and Grandmother came to the world. They undestood their plead, aknowledged the unfairness of their situation, and thus, used their divine powers to remedy the imperfect creation of the Child-goddess:

Beasts of almost every spaces and races on the planet evolved, they reached a form and size similar to that of the humans, to equal the survival opportunities. Now, they all got the ability to wield weapons, adding to the fangs and claws to defend themselves.

Besides, they got the intelligence to differenciate good from evil, and the wisdom and love for every other fellow creature.

Before, humans hunted them. Now, they were told to live peaceful among them, as if they were of the same kin. What happended to those critters who decided to remain outside the new pact? there were many of them: small birds and reptiles, fish and sea critters, insects, and a handful of proud mammals who considered themselves strong or clever enough to survive the way they had been initially created. Humans and all the Sentient Beings were allowed to use them to provide food and means of clothing.

Before departing to the heavens, the Goddesses gave one last condition to them:

„Be fertile and spread across the world, but thou shalt breed only within your species: cat with cat, unicorn with unicorn, falcon with falcon… the purity of every species is the legacy of your true Mother, the planet Aroura.“

Both Goddesses departed, and the beings of the world lived in peace for centuries, creating entire civilizations, sometimes helping each other, or roaming to search for countries they could claim as their own.

But they eventually forgot…

    1. Yay, you are welcome! By the way, the Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite Disney movies, maybe for the stunning library the beast gives to Belle, or because she was always with her nose buried inside a book, just like me! 😉

    1. Thanks! I’m happy to see that you liked it! You guessed right, I’m talking about the mythology in my story, and although with today’s post I did a huge jump to the future, I might write more about mythology later.
      I hope you found your books and had a great evening rereading them. 😃
