How We Learned To Cry

A myth submitted to the site by Olivia

Along the shoreline

One sunny windy day two gods named Temp and Hercules, Temp was god of temper and Hercules was the god of feelings.

One day both gods went out hunting for dinner for their families along the shoreline. When they first arrived they saw heaps of seals lying on the shoreline in a bunch, like a bunch of bananas. They were so excited Temp said, “I can’t wait to have this for tea. Yummy”

Suddenly the seals began to dive into the crystal clear water. Hercules said, “Now all our yummy food is gone”. Not long after, they just realised that there was one seal left sitting on a little sand bank. So they slowly moved to the little sand bank. But then, with excitement, the seals jumped up and swam back into the crystal clear water and swam away.

Temp stoop up looking sad. He had felt like hadn’t felt like this before. Suddenly, water fell from his eyes. Then he touched it and tasted it, he said it tasted just like salty water. Then they both heard a strange sound, it was a woman. The woman saw Temp with water running from his eyes, so she ran to the shoreline to see it he was OK.

Hercules then told the story about how all the seals got away. The woman said “they have a home and a family just like you”. Then everyone started to have water fall from their eyes , and Hercules and Temp promised that they would leave the seals alone , and only eat ham, bread, cheese and tomato sauce .
