Chapter One, Verse Twenty-Nine


Unlike her sisters, Green did not ask her parents for their help.
She had a stubborn spirit, instead of her sisters’ arrogance or anger.
When she wanted to make something new, she went at it alone.
To accept another’s help would somehow mar the ingenuity of the work.

The sisters each decided upon gods that grew and learned like humans.
Unlike Red and Blue, Green saw little use in raising a child.
A child required too much work and sacrifice to develop, she felt.
Green required a creature that was self-reliant from the very start.

Green, of course, had experience in making humans out of raw material.
But a god required something more, and she put in extra effort.
She made a mound of earth and metal, and fire and water.
She put some of her spirit into it, and she transformed it.
