Myth Analysis Essay
There once was a goddess with a mystical power that made everyone happy; as long as she was happy they were happy. That goddess’ name was Ella. Ella has a twin brother named Evan. Evan has the power of mind-control. Ella lived high in the sky on clouds amongst the other god. Ella and the other gods got along very well especially when she was in a good mood. After living in the clouds for a very long time all the gods got tired of doing regular deeds for themselves. They decided to do something big to create something. They all joined together in a big circle around the largest cloud and spun around three-hundred-and-sixty-five times. As they all came to a halt, they all peered off the edge of Evan’s humongous cloud they noticed a gigantic sphere. The gods got together and decided to call this gigantic sphere Earth. The gods soon learned that they could travel to Earth and that life could survive on Earth by the god James who had the power to make life human and animal.
As soon as word broke that life was able to survive on Earth they gods asked James to make them serpents. James was fine with this as long as the other gods let these serpents have some free time also. After James said yes, almost every god had serpents except Ella. Ella has been happy for a while, until one day Gus the god of wind blew her cloud near the sun. Ella demanded Gus blow her cloud back, Gus unfortunately couldn’t. When Ella got to her cloud she realized her feet were extremely hot because the ground of the cloud was hot. Ella wanted a shoe that would not slow her down, a shoe that was light and mystical just like her. Ella soon became very sad because she didn’t know how to make shoes. After Ella became sad, so did all the other gods. Once James got sad he offered her several serpents. Ella got super excited; she accepted the serpents from James. James had taught Ella a trick to get serpents to the clouds, which he taught to all the gods.
James to Ella to snap, as soon as she did she was at her house on her cloud; she was impressed. As soon as Ella and the serpents started walking their feet began burning, she told them that burning sensation was what she felt. Ella snapped her fingers again; both her and her serpents were back on Earth. Most of the serpents made shoes of wood. They carved using tools Shiloh the goddess of tools had given them, with their hands. Ella did not want wooden shoes that were far from what she wanted; she looked to her last serpent that had a very strong leaf in his hand. Ella asked this man what he was doing with a leaf, he replied simply “making you a shoe.” Ella asked “out of a measly little leaf?”
The man was very wise he traded with a serpent of Veronica the goddess of strength and power which can obtain in animals or plants. The man told Ella that the “measly little leaf” was very strong because of Veronica. Also the man told Ella that the leaf could be used as the bottom part of the shoe. Ella took the leaf from the old man and put it on her foot she realized that there was nothing holding that bottom part of the shoe or leaf to her foot, so she told the serpent. The serpent had an idea. He told Ella that if they poke three holes in the leaf like a triangle, one at the top two on the sides, using stems of flowers also.
Ella thought this idea was brilliant. Ella knew she couldn’t do that without help from Veronica again. So Veronica and Ella come together and pair up as a team. Veronica made strong stems of flowers by moving jumping the higher and faster she jumped, the stronger and taller the plant would be. Finally Veronica gave the stems to the serpent and he put the m in the holes and tied knots at the end of each hole. To make sure the knots were as tight as they could be they had to pair up with another god Zack god of wisdom and strength. Zack tied the knots so tight that they could not be loosened. Just to make sure that the knots would not come undone and would stay forever the serpent suggested a collaboration with Fresh. Fresh was the god of fire.
After hearing what the serpent had suggested just to be on the safe side Ella, agreed with this collaboration. Ella really didn’t want to have Fresh involved because bad things tend to happen when he is around. When Ella first heard of the words come out of the serpents mouth she threw the shoe. While in the air the shoe did a flip and it hit a tree made a big WHACK, and had a very loud FLOP. Ella liked that sound, she wanted to hear it again so she threw shoe again. Finally Fresh came, to tighten the knots with fire. He rubbed his thumb and middle finger together and a spark of fire appeared. As soon as the spark appeared he put the fire on the knots and then snapped to make the fire go away. As soon as Ella saw the finished product she was amazed. She tried the shoe on it had a strap like a v shape. She remembered when she threw the shoe how it flipped and then made a loud FLOP. She named these shoes flip-flops.
