Nu Wa Creates Humans

After the world was made by Pan Gu, Nu Wa, a goddess, came to Earth. According to the myth, she made people. It all started when she was all alone, and lonely. So she got some mud, some water, and mixed it up to get clay. Her first batch of clay people were like puppets. They didn’t move, didn’t talk, didn’t have life! So Nu Wa blew on them, and they came alive. They were mindless though, they couldn’t learn to adapt their environment, and would die out really fast. So everytime they died, Nu Wa had to make a new batch. It was tiring work.

She kept making them, and soon the clay people learned to control themselves and live. Nu Wa also let women and men get together to reproduce. That way, the human population would never die out.

The Story of the 10 Suns

Once, long long ago, there used to be 10 suns. They each took a turn going up the sky each day. Since they all agreed that they’re all lonely when they go up the sky alone, they decided that they should go up the sky at the same time and play as long as they want. So the next day, they all went up. Weeks went by, and when the king knew about this, he prayed to god for it to be normal again. Many died because of the heat. Soon, the king of heaven saw the human king’s prayer, and sent the master archer, Chang E’s husband, to take care of the mess down on Earth. So he went to earth and saw how much plants and people were dying. So he got his bow and his arrow and shot 9 right out of the sky. He was about to shoot the 10th one, but just then, his wife, Chang E appeared out of nowhere and told im to spare the last sun. Humans need the light and energy of the sun, and if the archer shot all of it, then, the humans won’t be able to live either. So from then on, only one sun watched over the earth.

The Rat in the Rice Tank

Once there was a rat. He was very skinny, because he had been wandering for quite some days now, with an empty stomach. One day, as he was walking in the woods, he saw a nice house. He snickered to himself and sneaked inside. There was no one home. Probably the owner was on vacation. He saw  a vase on the table. It smelled like food, so he climbed up the table to have a look. He climbed all the way to the tip and tried to climb in. It wouldn’t let him in, so he tried even harder to get in. Instead, the vase wobbled and it flipped him all the way to the end of the table, into the rice tank.

He was scared at first, then touched the white rice to examine.

” Oh my goodness! It’s rice!”

Then, he ate and ate and ate, until he was full. He wanted to get out, but then thought,

” If I get out, then I’ll never be able to eat this ever again. Hmm.. Just a little more.”

So he ate even more. He lie down for a nap. When he woke up, he ate more.

“Ahh.. Why not just stay here forever and ever and ever? I’ll never have to look for food again!” he thought.

So he ate. And stayed there. One day, the rice  ran out.

“oh no! The rice ran out! Well.. Perhaps it’s time to go now.”

He tried to climb up the side of the tank, but he kept sliding down.

“What’s happening? It’s supposed to let me out, and I’m supposed to jump right out without struggling! Oh no! What now? What if someone finds me?” Actually, he didn’t excersize at all! So he grew fat.

So he stood there. just then, the owner of the house came back. Thr rat was wiggling so much, that the rice tank shook!The owner noticed, and the rat had no choice but to get caught.

The Lion Who Pretended to be Sick

Once there was a lion. He worked out everyday in order to capture his preys. But, he didn’t really suceed. He hasn’t eaten anything for two days in a row. That day, he saw his first prey in 2 days. A small colt. He was playing until he saw Lion.

” Don’t run away! I want to eat you!” Lion roared.

” AHHH!! DANGEROUS!!” The colt screamed.

” NO!! Come back!” Lion yelled.

The colt dissappeared.

“Argh. It got away. How do these little animals run away so fast?!”

He went home, with an empty stomach.

” How am I supposed to get those animals without working? Working out is useless, basically.”

Then, a light bulb flashed on top of his head. Ding!

He thought that if he pretended to be sick, all the animals would come to his house and they’d get eaten! So he lied in bed, and waited. His first prey came. It was Lamb.

” Hello? Lion? I heard you were sick? I came to see how you were.” Lamb yelled from the other side of the door.

” Oh, yes. I am terribly sick. Could you do me a favor and cover me with my blankets? I’m too weak to handle this little thing.” Lion replied.

So Lamb fell for it. He got eaten. The same thing happened to Rabbit, Monkey, Deer, and many other animals.

Then, Fox came. He saw the footprints of other animals going in Lion’s cave, but never coming out.

” Fox, come in!”

” I’m afraid I can’t. If I go in there, I’m never going to come out, like the other animals. So long!”

Aftert that, he left.

” No! Wait! Fox! Grr.. Fox is just too sneaky! So sad. No food today.”

Fishing Sinensis

There was once a young man who fished for sinensis. Risking his life to go to the bottom of the sea everyday, he got all the sinensis he could find. It took a whole day to get a full bag. Then ,at the end of each day, he went to the marketplace and carted his sinensis down the street. He parked his cart in his usual spot, next to the coal seller. Then, he started to yell,

” Selling sinensis! Here! Precious and rare sinensis!!”

But nobody came. It seemed that his neighbor, the coal seller was doing a fine job at selling his coal. Then, a young lady came up to him and said,

” How much are you selling this for?”

He replied,” $100 a piece. ”

“What? That’s way too expensive. Who would buy you’re sinensis?” Then, she stalked off.

The young man sighed. At the end of the day, the coal seller was sold out and had earned money. But, the lad didn’t. He didn’t even sell a piece.

That’s when he thought of an idea.

” Hmm.. If I sell coal, then I could make more money!”

So he went home, got the rest of his sinensis, and fried them until they looked black as coal. The next day, he went to the marketplace to sell them.

” Fresh Coal! For the cheapest price on earth!” he yelled.

When his neighbor the coal seller saw him, he shook his head and said,

“silly boy.”

At the end of the day, he sold out. He was incredibly happy, but he only made a few coins. An old man walked by and asked,

“So, how was the business today?”

“I fried the sinensis to make it look like coal, and I told everybody that it was coal. I got these few coins for it.”

” Crazy boy! You used valuable sinensis to sell it as coal! Something easy to find and not worth much! You weren’t paitient to wait for the right moment!”

He walked away, shaking his head. He had finally learned to be paitient.

On the Moon

Once  there was a woodcutter and he always wanted to become a god. He asked many masters to accept him as a disciple. They all agreed, no matter what, but his lack of paitience stopped him from getting what he wanted.  One day, the god of heaven saw this, and he went down to Earth disguised as an old man, and told the young lad, to follow him. He led the young man through a forest, and pointed at one tree in particular. He was a woodcutter, so it would be easy for him. But, the trick was, everytime the man rested after cutting a little of the trunk, the wood would heal itself. So, what he HAD to do was cut it all at once. Which was impossible. He tried for many years, but never cut it . The old man had told him, that, if he wanted to be a god, then he must cut down that tree. But it was hard. Right now, he lives on the moon, and is probably still cutting the tree right this moment.
