When time started, humans lived in a world without any light or warmth.
To improve life, two gods were born: Sun and Moon. The two ruled day and night respectively.
Sun gave off light and warmed all those in his presence and everyone enjoyed his company due to his kind and inviting nature. Sun could do many things: warm, illuminate, promote growth, life the spirits of those around him, and many smaller things. Everyone would wake up just to greet Sun and his light.
However, his older brother Moon was another story.
Moon wasn’t as great as Sun. Not only was he smaller, but he could only bite off of what Sun could do. With Sun absent in the night and the cold of night filling the air, Moon was blamed for reminding the people of their time in darkness. Moon also could not give off light, so he instead reflected the light Sun created. He was seen as lesser than Sun. He dreamed to be as great and as loved as Sun, but as long as he stayed in the night, no one would ever care for Moon. In fact, just so that they would be ready for Sun, many people slept in Moon’s presence.
Eventually, despite their being brothers, Moon grew extremely jealous of Sun. He slowly began to make his way into the day which caught the attention of some. Taking notice, Moon devised a plan to become as loved as Sun.
The following day, Moon challenged Sun. Sun, unaware of Moon’s feelings or intentions, accepted the challenge anyway.
Moon began to move about more and suddenly outdid Sun, but only for a moment before Sun’s ability was shown again. It didn’t last very long, Moon’s triumph and his happiness. Seeing as his efforts only earned him a quick flash of glory, he felt ashamed and fled to night once again.
Sun, finally understanding Moon’s feelings instructed everyone to search for Moon in the night, for Sun’s ability to create light and warmth prevented him from entering the night. Despite everyone’s efforts, Moon could not be found. However, having heard their calls, Moon began to poke out of his hiding place. Sun saw this and moved to help guide everyone to Moon.
With Sun’s help, everyone was able to see Moon’s beauty and brilliance that was hidden in the darkness. Feeling loved, Moon began to cry tears of joy, raising the tides. To help end this, Sun came in and comforted Moon. His warmth and kindness reached Moon’s heart and dried his tears, lowering the tides.
To this day, Moon does sometimes get jealous and try to cover Sun.
To this day, Moon does raise and lower the tides with his fluctuating emotions.
To this day, Moon does take cover throughout the months, hiding so that when he does show himself, he is more appreciated.
To this day, Sun does come to Moon’s aid and comforts him in his time of need.
Sun and Moon balance each other, creating a perfect bond that cannot be broken.
