Giants are not only brawn but they got brains too. They can think and asses certain situation. Here, the Queen Fairy try to punish the Humans.
Sad Songs in the Rain.
The High Priestess then conferred with the gods that dictated the human world. They agreed that the young human would be sent to conquer the land beyond the clouds. Those giants there have caused them countless sleepless moments when they played with the rain-bearing clouds.
In the past those giants would hold back the rain-bearing clouds from moving to the human’s sky. This act of cruelty resulted in rain not coming for months and the land of the humans would be dry. Crops would fail and animals died. Many humans starved. The rain fairies would cry for days because they could not come out to dance and play.
So, our young humans, seven in all, set out for the land beyond the clouds. After marching for days they came to that misty land. Imagine how surprised they were to come across acres and acres of fluffy clouds.
A short while later they came across piles of weapon neatly stacked in front of them. One by one they tiptoed about seeking for those who owned the weapons. They stopped for a while when they heard snores thundering from among the piles of cloud. They crept on toward some clouds that seemed to have been rolled about.
There in front of them, rolled about in the softest of all the clouds, were the giants. They snored and mumbled in their sleep. The young humans motioned to each other of chopping the giant’s head at one.
In a flash the giant’s head were chopped off. Not the slightest cry of pain was heard since they were all fast asleep. Grabbing a giant’s head each, the young humans raced down to their world. Only after a while were cries heard in the giant’s land when they realized that their greatest warriors were dead.
However, unknown to the humans the High Priestess ordered a portal to be erected not far from the path that led to the Giant’s land. The portal was to be seen as a short-cut to the human’s world.
The humans were in for a big surprise.
As the young human raced for their life, in front of them was what appeared to be short-cut to their world. Not wanting to waste another moment they rushed toward the portal. They run along the corridor and back into the Giant’s world.
The Giant King was waiting for them. Imagine how surprised they were when they found out the predicament they were in. The young humans froze.
Not long after that rain clouds were seen again floating to the human’s world. Rain falls as usual. People rejoiced and their harvests were bountiful.
Back in the Giant’s land, our Giant King realized that his warriors were guilty in playing with the clouds. If his warriors did not hold back the clouds the humans would not have come and kill them. So, he ordered that the clouds be set free.
The rain fairies were very sad. Their lovers did not come as promised. However, they waited and waited. Like always, when the rain falls they would again sing their sad song.
Even these days if one were to listen carefully, especially when one is alone, those sad songs will still float by. Be alone one rainy day and listen!
You can still hear the songs.
Sad, sad songs.
