The Story of the Teal Rose
- Main article: The Story of the Teal Rose
A hunter, Ajanix, was hunting in the forest, and he was close on the tail of a jack rabbit that could feed his family for a week. Then a shimmering orange figure appeared as he stared at the hunter who gently aimed his crossbow at the jack rabbit. The shimmering orange figure was Atwon, who was the god and protector of animals. He cursed the hunter, and deep in the wood, another hunter saw Ajanix as a large buck and foolishly shot the 'deer' in the chest. Atwon carefully left the scene, but still stared from the heavens at the dying Ajanix. The hunter who shot Ajanix left, thinking he saw a ferocious wolf. The figure was actually the goddess Athasia, who, on sight, immediately fell in love with Ajanix. Then she stared down at the dark shaft of a crossbow bolt that was buried in his now bloodied chest. She cried to herself, and the sound of her cries made all the animals come to the woods and stare on at the goddess and the man. The man stopped breathing, and pity fell on Atwon. He turned Ajanix's body into a teal rose, and Athasia declared that rose sacred to her. Then Atwon turned Ajanix to the immortal god of crossbows and archery.
The Beauties of Flowers
Berrilia had been in love with the most beautiful man in Alexandonium. That man had gone out with her several times, and they both were happy. When Berrilia's boyfriend had asked her to create a flower for him, she did. 'Oh, that is beautiful.' the boyfriend would say. Then he'd ask her to make more. By the time she'd covered millions of acres of flowers. Then she fainted.
When she woke up, it was a bright day. She tried flying, but she couldn't do it. All her godly powers were gone. She was a regular mortal. She began to cry, and her tears made the flowers form a great stalk to the heavens. She began to climb the stalk, and when she reached the heavens, she cried to her mother Athasia, who granted her immortality, but added thorns to the rose, which reminded Berrilia of the protection of the flower, but also its beauty.
