A BEDTIME STORY
“Do not settle for hero when you can be a legend.
Do not settle for legend when you can be a God.”
Billions of years ago, when each entity of this universe was coming into existence, two supreme beings were giving this universe a habitable shape. Two energies, Light and Dark, joined forces to begin the basic formation of this universe. Two Celestials, BOSON who controlled the light energy or pure energy, along with SPECTRE who controlled the dark energy or black matter, fused the seeds of creation. This fusion of two seeds liberated tremendous amount of energy forming atoms, molecules and structures which later led to the formation of stars and heavenly bodies. BOSON and SPECTRE both wanted a place for dwelling and habitation. BOSON, along with SPECTRE, created the most beautiful planet, a place consisting of all the necessities required to birth a civilization, the planet Earth. Gods were later created by BOSON, while Demons were created by SPECTRE.Both Gods and Demons used to live peacefully on Earth, the trade and administration on Earth was smooth and fluent. Over the course of time Gods got so proud of their powers that they started forcing demons to worship them. Demons refused to do this as they were equally superior as Gods, with the same power levels. Gods wanted someone to worship and to serve them. So, they went to BOSON for help. After listening to the Gods, BOSON concluded and decided to create an intelligent life, an organism who is curious to learn and understand the teachings and facts of life. He shared his plan of creating an intelligent life form with SPECTRE, to which SPECTRE refused. He declined the proposal of creating any new life just for the Gods to be worshipped. SPECTRE’s answer made BOSON angry, so he decided to create it on his own.
BOSON, on that night, goes to a jungle for search of an organism who could be manipulated into an intelligent life form. At the corner of a bush, he found an ape breaking a nut with the help of a stone. With his enchantment, BOSON paralyzes that ape and brings him to his experiment room. After understanding the anatomy and physiology of the ape completely, he took the Serum of Evolution and injected it into its cells. Mutation of the cells led to the creation of entirely new intelligent cells. Nurturing it, those cells later developed into a full-grown life form. BOSON named it human. Later, many humans were similarly created by BOSON. This news somehow went up to the ears of SPECTRE, but he refused to take any action and behaved like he does not have any information. But the infiltration of humans on Earth increased the tension between Gods and Demons. Humans became the worshipper of Gods which directly made them fearful of Demons. The Supreme Celestial, creator of BOSON and SPECTRE interfered in this.MATAE, the Apex of this hierarchy appeared and divided them into three realms. The Heavens for Gods, Underworld for demons and Earth for humans. Even after this separation, Gods continued to maintain their influence on Earth which made the demons furious. This increased the animosity and led to wars and battles. Many wars were fought for ages and millennials. A council of Gods was called to defeat demons and to rearrange the civilizations on Earth. King Caeli, the Wind god, the head of the council and king of gods along with Thunder god Volton, Fire god Ignis, Sun god Solis and Earth god Terra, defeated the army of demons and pushed them under into the darkness of the Underworld. They created an enchantment and sealed all the six doors to the Underworld, the doors to six spheres of the demon world. The door to the sphere of ASOR, RAKAS, PESHACH, NAGAS, PRETAS and SHAKON. All the six keys later were concealed at six different spots on Earth, keeping the Underworld sealed forever.
Gods were victorious over demons, celebrations were everywhere, feasts and parties were arranged at the palace of Gods. Every single God was drunk in the name of their victorious feat, bragging about their achievements and glories. Gods later helped humans begin several civilizations and to start administration. Humans became the devotees of Gods, worshipping them, building places where they could be worshipped. Even in literature, victory of Gods over Demons was glorified as the victory of good versus evil, stories were told from generations to generations.
“But grandma, will demons be ever coming back to Earth? And where did all those Gods go? Why can’t we see any of them on Earth now?”
“Oh Iris! When you ask me such questions, it makes me adore you even more. Seeing human civilizations prospering and flourishing, Gods finally came to a decision to leave the Earth and settle in the heavens permanently. When Gods finally shifted to the heavens, BOSON left his body and his spirit vanished into the eternity. And after that Gods never came back to Earth.” Grandma replied.
“Please don’t end this Granny! I want to hear more stories, tell me more, I want to hear more!”
“Iris, no more stories kid. You are not a child anymore. You will be turning twenty soon. Just go to sleep now, I do not want you to be late for your college. Cover yourself with the blanket otherwise you will catch a cold. Now close your eyes and go to sleep.”
Kissing her forehead granny said good night to Iris and closed the door of her room. Iris, dreaming about the entire gods and demon’s thing, she finally fell asleep.
