     And so was it decided, on that Day of all Days, that the Heavens and the Earth would be separate. And so was it decided, on that Day of all Days, that One and only One would walk the Earth and tend to It. And so it was, for century upon century. The grasses grew, the animals prospered, and peace reigned in the Lands and in the Seas. And so it was.
     And there came a day that peace was broken in the Lands and broken in the Seas. And so it was that there were Two that walked the Earth and Two that tended to It, one of Light and the other of Dark. And so it was, for neither had the power to destroy the other. And so it was.
     And so it came to pass that the Earth was divided and the creatures had to choose. And so it came to be that there were two camps on the Earth. And so it was that no creature was allowed to remain neutral between the two camps. And so it was that war tore the Lands apart and the Seas apart. And so it was.
     And so it was that for many years war wracked the Lands and wracked the Seas. And so it was that the beauteous creatures of the Earth died by the hundreds. And so it was that the grasses stopped growing. And so it was.
     And so it came to be that the Heavens could no longer remain separate. And so it was decided that the Earth would be cleansed, the creatures reborn, and the grasses regrown. And so it was thought that thus the peace would be restored. And so it was that this was done. And so it was.
     And so it was that Two yet walked the Earth, and so it was that peace was not restored. And so it was that the Heavens could not remain separate. And so it was that the Heavens had to choose. And so it was that the Two were called for Judgement. And so it was.
     And so it was that the Two stood before the Heavens in all their Glory, one bathed in Light, the other shrouded in Dark. And so it was that the Two were examined and their Deeds compared. And so it was that the Heavens could find no difference in the Two. And so it was.
     And so it was that after great deliberation a Solution was proposed. And so it was that this Solution was accepted. And so it was.
     And so it came to pass that a Creature was chosen from the Earth and brought to the Heavens. And so it was that the Two were presented to the One, to whom the Burden of Choosing had been assigned. And so it was.
     And so it was that the Creature could not distinguish between the Two. And so it was that it chose. And so it was that one was destroyed and the other was not. And so it was that the Heavens were again separate from the Earth. And so it was.
     And so it was that the grasses again grew in the Lands and in the Seas. And so it was that the animals again prospered in the Lands and in the Seas. And so it was that peace again reigned in the Lands and in the Seas. And so it was that One and only One walked the Earth and tended to It. And so it was.
     And so there came a time when the Earth rose up against the Heavens. And so it was that the One headed the forces of Earth, and the Heavens were defenceless. And so it was that the Heavens turned to the One and asked Why? And so it was that the Creature assigned the Choosing came forth from within the forces of Earth and took the throne of the Heavens. And so it was.
