One upon a time, the world was young. There was nothing and no one to stop it from blooming and being beautiful. The sun and the moon hadn't been separated long ago and they still missed each other and they would leave each other messages with the ocean. The sun would shine and sing love song to it and them he would deliver them to the moon at night. It was a painful arrangement for all three of them. The Sun and the Moon would never be together again and the Ocean would suffer being now aware of what Love looked liked. He would for ever be nothing but a witness of the great secret that keeps the stars from touching each other, always knowing that it is there but never being able to feel it himself.

But listen to me, I almost forgot what this story is really about. I´m not a spirit like the others, I do not know who I am or what my mission in this world is. I just know, I know stories. I just know that like the Ocean, I am a witness. I know that I see mistakes being made but I can not do anything about it. I just am and will always just be.

This story is about two spirits, very different from one another but two who could not exist without each other. Death, like me, has been around for a very long time. She was around when there was nothing and nothing was supose to be. We were just supose to exist and wait, but we did not knew what we were waiting for. We just knew we would be waiting a long time. We do not know time like you do. I can not tell you how long we waited for I do not know Time. She is always busy and everytime we meet, I am pulled away. But Death and I are close friends, sometimes I even think that I am the only one who undestands her and she is the only one who undestands me.

I remember Death and I floating in the Nothing when he came up to us. He told us his name was Life and that our wait was over. He started acting like he was the new king and calling all the other spirits. The called upon Light and Shadow, Ocean and Earth, Sun and Moon and all the other pairs that you can imagine. He told us the had a mission, a mission to create.

I can not tell you what followed, I can just tell you I was afraid. Light and Shadow, Ocean and Earth worked and worked, they did not rest and Life just would not stop until his vision was completed. I felt great pain and then I felt what I came to know as warm. I saw the knew face of Sun and started calling his real name but he did not answer, I was terrified. I ran until I saw what I came to know as the new face of Ocean and I undestood I was touch earth with my feet. I called their real names and they did not answer, I cried. I cried until I saw Moon, she conforted me although she said nothing, just knowing that Ocean was trying to get close to her and deliver the message of Sun made me feel like even though I was alone they still had each other.

As Sun and Moon came and went, I understood Time. I met what know are called animals and everntually I ran into my old friend Death and the one who started all of this, Life.
