A myth submitted to the site by Charlotte Boyd-Walsh
A very long time ago in Greece, on the Island of nothing, there lived a young boy named Eydest. He lived with his father Reabooth. They weren’t a wealthy family at all.
One day Eydest said to his father. “Why isn’t there anything up in the sky?” Reabooth didn’t say anything, he didn’t know why. He just started to walk away from Eydest.
King Cloudest also lived on this island. He was the King of this land. He had ten servants. He lived with his wife and dog. One day King Cloudest was outside looking up at the sky, wondering that maybe something should be up there, something large, floating and moving.
King Cloudest decided to do something about this. So on this day, he went out and made a fire and with his special powers, he went into the fire and somehow started to blow, which made a white blob go up into the sky. He kept on doing this until he got tired.
And that’s how clouds were first made and they got their name from King Cloudest. When sunset comes each night and the red and orange colours show through, that’s fire from King Cloudest.
