Excerpt – Tale of creation

Excerpt from “the Tale of Creation” as it is read to Archenon in chapter 2:

“In the beginning, Mother Nature wept for the loneliness she felt after having spent an eternity alone in the universe. As she wept, her tears became rivers, leading to waterfalls, turning into oceans, and thus creating the first of all elements of the world: water. With water came the first sign of life to the world of Aradria. Mother Nature found water to be quite soothing, yet she was not satisfied with her creation. There was no contrast in the scenery. She took a deep breath and blew air into the world, so as to make the ocean dance at her will. Shivering, as she did not feel balanced, she rubbed her hands until sparks flew from them and created the sun: as water’s counterpart. The world was now both hot and cold at different times. In need of balance, and longing for company, Mother Nature shook her hair, and the gems that lived within the strands of her golden head landed as mighty clods of earth at various places around the world …In order for her elements to thrive together, she provided them each with properties that would allow them to coexist. She made it so that they all depended on each other in life – and in death …

… As the four elements harmonized, taking and receiving life from one another, there was growth both below and above the ocean. As Mother Nature watched her world flourish, she found it to be perfect. Perfection, however, was not her intention. The creatures of both ocean and of land had no minds of their own. They grew, lived and then eventually died, as was their nature. For as she had created it, all things had to balance, and so what was once earth had to become earth yet again in order to allow new beings to find their place in Aradria. And so it was that Mother Nature cut out a piece of her heart and laid it down as a blanket upon the world, which created hopes and desires, blended with her own fear and longing. This was how the spirit of Mother Nature came to shape the hearts and destinies of all the individuals in her world, and thus a piece of her came to inhabit all the elements. It was flawed perfection, just as she intended it to be …”

I am a Norwegian writer, author of the Reborn series, and a social worker. I love to write, and it has been a passion of mine ever since I knew how to put pen to paper. I hope my love of magic and make-believe will touch the spirit of others out there, who share my passion for fantasy, or just the need to read :)
