As often when people are busy they
forget about their promises. This was the same for Wind. She watched her
children grow, taught them all she knew about the ancient ways of the Gods
and the new ways of the Humans. All of her children were quick learners
though their characters were very different.
Wind had wanted to given them powers sooner, but it hadn't been easy
deciding which direction should be given to which child.
But now, now her children were teens in looks and behaviour she thought she
knew what she was going to give to whom.
"Children!" she called.
5 pair of feet ran to the door. Wind Chimes as usual the lightest and
fastest of the group. Closely followed by Dewigenano. A bit later Dewinavho
entered, then her twin brother Dewivawest. And last Dewinazus, taking her
time as usual.
"What is it mother?" Dewigenano asked.
"I'm going to give you each a gift." she said.
"Me first!" Dewigenano yelled before the others could react.
"You get control over South Winds and the power to make the earth
fertile or barren. Please use your talent wisely and think before you
The others stood waiting, watching how their mother would continue.
"Dewinavho, my daughter, you get control over the Eastern Wind and the
power to create sandstorms. I know you will have a handy use for those
sandstorms." Wind said and winked to her shy daughter.
Then she turned to Dewivawest." You my son will control the moist
Western Winds that come from the sea. I'm also giving you the power to
create tidal waves." He nodded and took a step back.
"What are we getting mother?" Wind Chimes wanted to know.
"First let me give your sister her gift, they'll need you to use
it." Wind told her youngest.
Wind Chimes looked very pleased about this and let Wind finish her round.
"Dewinazus, you will control the North Winds and you've earned the
power to cause ice storms."
Wind looked at each of their faces and said:
"Each of these gifts can be very useful, but also dangerous. Remember
that what one does only the other can undo. So be careful and think before
you act." she looked at Dewigenano.
Wind Chimes was by now, jumping in the air. They had waited enough. Wind
bent down to talk to her smallest and youngest child.
"Dear WindChimes. To you I offer the gift of transportation and
communication. Without you all the others do will be confined to this
dimension. Their only contact with the outside world will be you."
Wind Chimes looked very solemn, for once their eyes focused on the same
point, her face.
"And what about you mother?" Wind Chimes asked.
"I will go now. I'll come back, but I need to finish some
business." Wind said.
It hurt her to know she was going to leave her children unprotected and
unsupervised. But it was the only way. With them safely locked inside the
Wind Dimension no-one would know they even existed. They would be safe from
the other Gods.
Wind got up and watched as her children left the warm sunny top of the
mountain. They all went a different direction... to play with their gifts no
doubt. She looked at the sky and wondered how her life would have been with
Serdayn at her side. Would they have been happy with their children?
Suddenly a shadow moved in the corner of her eyes. When she looked at it, it
was gone. She looked up, but there were no eagles. She knew that. She hadn't
Wind wondered for a moment if her eyes had been playing tricks on her. But
they had never before. She was a God. She should remember that. What she saw
was real... But then... Serdayn!
