Myth: The Bull and the Sky
In the Early Days, before humans forgot their natural ability to speak with the animals, a young girl entered Bull’s field and settled herself on the lush grass for an afternoon of cloud spotting. The Sky was a brilliant azure, and the few clouds present were delicate brushes of white; wispy trails across the infinite canvas of the heavens.
Out aloud the girl exclaimed, “This is the most beautiful sky I have ever seen!” A dismissive snort was uttered by Bull. “Beautiful? What’s so beautiful about that plain sky?” Chided, the girl quietly returned to her cloud spotting and Bull returned to his grazing.

Eternal Blue Heaven, angered by Crane's envy, struck her blind with a flash of lightning. As Crane screamed out in fright, her eyes appeared on Peacock's tail.
Owl turned his head to watch Peacock as he passed, and cursed his beauty. "Look at how his ornate tail flows in all directions! My plain tail does nothing for me!" Etern
