Children of the Sun
Once upon a time when men were strong and fearless as Heracles this story had happened.
One day our Sun didn’t arise in heaven. That early morning all people were awfully scared and confused. They asked one another: “Where is our Sun? Why didn’t it come? What will we do? How will we survive? During three days they were holding on without Sun in the darkness. And at night, when stars were seen well in heaven , they prayed as if they see miracle.
Meantime, one fisherman set off to the lake for fishing. He didn’t see our Sun for three days either, but with no fear he believed, that darkness has own value. “Probably I will find out a special sign the Creator has for me.” he thought.
Soon the fisherman approached a lake where all of a sudden he saw a boat. The waters of the lake took a good care of her twists. There were two children in the boat. Under the moonlight those two looked very charming and fairy. The fisher hadn’t seen before such a beauty and harmony of Nature in one image. Their clothes, embroidered with gold, were merging with stars’ glimmer. And our fisherman suggested these two aren’t from the Earth. “They are from heaven!” he exclaimed in a loud voice. “It’s miracle! I have found these two instead of fish!?’’he smiled.
The man gladly waved them and asked if he could give them a hand. When children went ashore, a peaceful energy were gleaming over them both .And behind and in front of them. On the lake bank those two gently waved back to the fisher and when he asked them to follow him into his house, they agreed courteously.
All way long the children whispered something and smiled to each other, but each time the fisherman turned his face in hope to ask about them ,to get to know them – they stopped with a fear and wonderingly stared at him. All the said since he has met them ,was just two words: “Ikar’’ and “ Heka”. “Ikar is a name of the boy and Heka – she is a girl.” thought in a surprise the fisherman.
Next morning Sun rose up gorgeously and all the village people happily greeted one another. They looked upon heaven and praised the Sun over and over again .Heka and Ikar were very much happy too. They even gave a present to the fisherman . It was an amulet.
Since then nobody haven’t seen again those two –Ikar and Heka. Nobody knows where are they nowadays.
Our fisherman tells this story to other children some time , but he never shows his amulet to anyone. He just says when he is lonely he goes down to the lake, sits on the lake’s bank under the moonlight and holds an amulet in his hand. He says he believes the children of the Sun will come back one day to reveal the secret of the amulet.
Brother and Sister
There were a brother and a sister. Once in the morning the sister woke up all in tears and sobbingly said to her brother : “I saw a bad dream , dear brother . I was dreaming that a scary beast waded into our house and instead of his severed head each time a new one had appeared ! Let’s go out of our house, let’s quickly set off to the forest! I shall put enough food into a basket . Then we may stay overnight out there. I will take silver threads to sew a new shirt for you .Please ! Let’s go faster! ” “All right, dear sister, let’s go ! But stop weeping, please, or you will awake the servants up not in a right moment . They will start pumping about everything and you know very well that I dislike it. Let’s immediately go !So that they will not notice our escape at all. Let them think we have disappeared! Let them think that we have disappeared forever! The girl took a basket with supplies for them , the boy also collected all he needed and they went on to the forest. The weather was wonderful. Birds were singing joyfully , the foliage of trees gently whispered and our children safely settled down in the meadow. I should tell you my dear friend that in this forest they have been before. They have got in here even a structure like a hut they had built from mixed woody sticks and an old sail. The brother went for a walk into the woods and his sister began sewing a shirt of silver threads. She believed that such a shirt would shield her brother against any evil forces . Tears after a bad morning dream sometimes clouded her eyes and quietly dripped over silver threads ,as she were sewing. At last the very last stitch was ready and the girl full of joy and excitedly rushed to give a new shirt to her brother.
“Probably he is carving figures of bear cubs and dolphins again , right down the stream. Why does he need so many? I do not understand! He cuts out and cuts out and so goes on and on ! Soon this lovely figures might need a separate room to live in ! ” she thought happily.
Suddenly the clouds have obscured the sun. It became completely dark and a powerful gust of the wind hit the girl to her back. It hit her so strongly that poor tiny girl fell right to the ground. Being frightened, the girl decided that it might be the tricks of the evil foe , hunting on her brother. At once she decided to come back home and spy whether something had happened over there. Throwing a new silver shirt at the tree in the woods, with the hope that it will find her brother in a right time itself, the girl rushed home in the semidarkness. Near the house ,secretly, she sneaked to the back door, opened it and turned out in the wine cellar. Once with her brother they have found inside the cellar that one of the walls had rotten part of a tree and they made a hole in it . Since then at any moment they could see and listen to what happens in the kitchen and what about their servants tittle –tattle. Looking through a hole , the girl saw nothing .Only a muffled sound of sifting flour reached her ears and then she more calmly continued her way to the upper rooms : she carefully looked round ,went into her room and checked up the wardrobe and a place under the bed .
“ Have someone planned to put a curse on me? With an urgly straw – dolls which are more worse when with needles in ?” she said in a loud voice . Then checked properly under the carpet, but have found only a dry spot of a resin and an old blade . There were no beast ! The girl happily exhaled and thought: “It’s time to go back to the forest. My brother worries I guess where am I .” Getting out through the back door of the house she hurried to her brother. All the way she recalled incidents had happened during a day and was very flurried . But bad thoughts left her as fast as she got sight of a familiar silhouette :
”Well, what a nut you are ,sister ! What for you had left my new silver tunic in the middle of the forest ?! Where have you been ? I hailed you!” the brother asked a girl ,smiling. “ I cut out a heap of a new dolphins and one bear cub , while was waiting for you! Look,what a pretty one! And I have found the best flower of all forests and meadows ! Here you are! ”
“I was at home! Listened to the gossip of our servants and yet I have found … Look what! Exactly saying, on my way to you I have found it! It was on the ground near our pathway ! It might be yours , it’s very similar to those you always curve your figures .
“No! It’s not mine .Where have you founded that, sister ?asked the brother with a disquiet in his voice looking at a small penknife .“May I take it , give me, please .let me see .For me you founded him ,didn’t you ?This is exactly what I need! Let’s go sit in the hut, or somewhere else. I’m a little tired .You’re either short of breath.”
In their small woody hut the children were debating a newmade figures and the girl dreamed how beautiful it would be to decorate them with all colors of the rainbow.
They did not notice as they fell asleep and did not notice as night fell down.The stars shone upon them, and they saw beautiful dreams.
They did not know that in their Kingdom an evil monster had suddenly appeared d and burned out many houses. They did not know that their house as well was burned to the ground . They did not know they fell asleep for many years. Creator has saved them from such a poor fate . And when they woke up, the Sun tenderly warmed them up with its rays. They could understand the language of birds and animals round ,could understand what leaves whisper and what the sparkling streams want to tell .
They knew they are the Children of the Sun.
