The Whispering Trees and the Sacred Fish

Chapter 1

The Time of Creation

Once upon a time, in the ancient world known only to the most powerful creator among all, “Samay”, there existed a time when the Earth was a realm of simplicity. Water and land coexisted harmoniously, adorned by towering trees and inhabited by a few living organisms that maintained the delicate balance of the environment. It was a time when trees possessed remarkable abilities. They traveled from one place to another using their roots, created a protective canopy of leaves to shield the Earth from the scorching sunlight, and communicated and navigated through their branches. These majestic trees were the vital connections between the realms of land and water.

However, amidst this serene landscape, a new kind of life emerged on land. It began to develop intelligence and an insatiable hunger. Initially small, resembling a snail but thick like a cobra, it surpassed all other land creatures in size. This creature, known as “Sarp”, had no legs, eyes, or ears. Rumors spread among the trees that Sarp was created by “Thairaav”, the twin brother of Samay, in an attempt to replicate the creature created by Samay in water, known as “Matsya”. Samay had only created a few Matsyas, but one of them stood out as extraordinary, already displaying the ability to seek out essential resources through its remarkable senses.

Thairaav, eager to stand apart and prove himself as the most powerful creator, named his land creature “Sarp”. As news of jealousy, hatred, and competition reached the trees, the king of trees, “Botbrisk”, established a group of small plants to keep a watchful eye on Sarp’s actions.

Millions of years passed, and Matsya utilized its extraordinary senses to bring peace to the underwater kingdom. Every organism and species in the water thrived, thanks to the pathways Matsya created, the food it sourced, and the shelter it provided. Underwater trees and plants served as the sole sources of energy and sustenance for Matsya and its kind.

With time, the population of Matsya’s species multiplied, leading to worries about their future. It was then that “Inari”, a small and intelligent plant and a close friend of Matsya, shared the secret of their creator, Samay. Inari, well-respected by Botbrisk, the king of trees, possessed knowledge of both the affairs of land and water. Recognizing that the time had come for Matsya to venture beyond its previous accomplishments, Inari advised Matsya to journey eastward, traversing the scorching hot belt of lava, in a quest to meet its creator before Samay ascended the upcoming hill.

Meanwhile, unsettling reports of missing tribes of Matsya reached Inari’s ears. Filled with a sense of urgency and a yearning for answers, Matsya wasted no time and embarked on a perilous adventure to find its creator.

The journey was fraught with unknown dangers and mysteries waiting to be unraveled. The air carried a mix of anticipation and trepidation, as Matsya swam through the vast waters, encountering majestic coral reefs, ancient sea caves, and creatures of all shapes and sizes. The smell of salt lingered in the air, while the distant sounds of crashing waves and the occasional calls of seagulls created a symphony of the sea.

As Matsya ventured further, leaving the familiar territories behind, the heat intensified, emanating from the looming hot belt of lava. The scent of sulfur and molten rocks overwhelmed its senses. With each stroke, Matsya could feel the intense energy of the environment, the scorching heat penetrating its being. Fear mixed with determination propelled Matsya forward, its heart filled with the hope of finding the answers it sought.

And so, Matsya pressed on, braving the searing temperatures and the inhospitable terrain. It swam tirelessly, driven by an unwavering determination to reach its creator, Samay. The journey seemed endless, as the days turned into nights and the nights into days. Matsya’s fins propelled it through the molten currents, each stroke a testament to its resilience.
