The Message Pool

A myth submitted to the site by Andrew


Once there was a great king named Atlantis. He had a daughter named Ophelias and her mother Atlanta was in a really bad condition because of her sickness. She wanted to help her mom by getting her berries from a tree next to a lake.

She went to pick it and as she was picking she saw a man. A man with a long beard, as if he were a wizard or magician. She hid behind the tree hoping to see what happens. Then suddenly, he disappeared into the lake.

She looked into the lake and she saw a message saying:
"Today someone will pass on to the underworld and rule its waters from below the earth's surface."
Ophelias immediately returned to the palace and found out that her mother had past away before she even got there. She wept for hours, thinking of her mother and her great times with her.

So she went to the pool and sent her body afloat on the water and she disappeared into the lake. Later on, minutes after, there was a message:
"Heres to the new Queen of the great lake, Lake Ashlentina. The new ruler is Queen Atlanta." She was crying for her mother's disappearance and her proud honor.

After that she renamed the lake Atlanta for her mothers remembrance. Ever since, she cleaned the lake, for its beauty was remarkable.
