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.
