Why The Sun and The Moon Live In The Sky(Southeastern Nigeria)

A long time ago, when the world was new, the Sun married the Moon and they lived as happily as can be. They lived in a little cottage near the Ocean.

One day, the Sun and the Moon invited the Ocean to their house for a visit. The Ocean liked it so much. He wanted to stay in a little cottage. The Sun and the Moon liked the Ocean and hoped the cottage would be big enough for all three of them.

     So the Sun and the Moon invited the Ocean to stay with them. What happened then? Then came the Ocean with all his friends; the whales, the fish, the tortoises,the crabs and all the creatures that live in the sea.

     The water rose higher and higher in the cottage. Soon, there was no more room for the Sun and the Moon. Oh, how poor they were. They rose up into the sky where they have lived ever since. Well, that’s the story.

what’s spoken flies, what’s written never dies
