The Mystic Lantern

A myth submitted to the site by Lauren

Country, Morocco

Centuries ago, there lived a young girl named Beijeita, who lived in Morocco. Her mother, Cressidina, lay on her bed coughing and wheezing.
Knowing that she was going to die, Cressidina gave Beijeita a locket. Then Cressidina slowly died. Cressidina was a goddess but she didnt want Beijeita to know. She thought that Beijeita wouldent handle it very well. Then, Beijeita started to cry.

A few days later after her mother had been drifted away into the sky to live a new life as a god, Beijeita put on her locket and went for a walk that she had never been to keen to go down before. But what Beijeita and Cressidina didnt know was that the locket was full of bad souls and spirits.

As Beijeita walked down the bumpy road, she stumbled and fell onto her knees. The locket went flying, until it came to a huge smash on the rocky road. The spirits flew out of the locket and soared into the sky. Beijeita didnt notice that her locket had gone and smashed, but she thought that falling was a bad sign from her mother, so she headed back to the hut that she lived in.

The spirits flew round Morocco for days and days until one of the gods Rattle found a black lantern. The lantern was black with patterns and had red and green lights making it shine. Rattele knew that this would be safe, but he wadsnt completly sure. He told the other spirits to fly into the lantern and that they would live there for all eternity. But what the spirits didnt know is that the mystic lantern was owned my a mystic Moroccan Genie

The genie was forced to sell the lantern to an antiques shop to get money for clothes and food. That lantern was his most prized posession and he wasnt happy with selling up but some choices you dont want to make but you have to do the right thing. He found an antiques shop in the Lake District and sold it to them for 6 and thruppence.

Legend still has it that if you listen closely you cn still hear the rattles of the rattle snake god.
