The Legend of the banana

A myth submitted to the site by KOI45432

Cainta , Philippines

Once upon there was a girl named Raja.
She was the only friend of the fisherman named Galencio.
Sadly Galencio died because of heart disease.
Raja was so alone that she talked with animals even plants.

One day while Raja was talking to a bird, a rabbit came running.
She followed the rabbit till she reached a dirty cave.
At the cave she saw a spirit, she followed the spirit she stumbled and find herself in a place full of gold, diamonds and silver. She began to jump.

The spirit turned to flesh and kissed her, she slept and woke in a beautiful golden bedroom.
The spirit man was Baanna, he married Raja and had a son. Baanna know that it his time to return to the spirit world .. on that day he went out and disappeared, all could Raja see was a bleeding heart. She picked it and planted it and the plant grew and bore a golden fruit, as golden as the golden bedroom - she named it banana as a honor to Baanna.
