It was 15 billion years ago, a nothing but green paradise you could see, no matter where you walked. A beautiful landscape without a name, no noice, no pollution, not anything but the big blue non polluted sky. Mountains, sea and big tall trees. But suddenly in the empty clear silence there was a Bang!
Oh I think this is the place the master had been talking about, said the Lion. The Faun serious as usual, just heard the Lion. This is, this is, isn´t it like something that we had ever seen or am I wrong? The Faun didn´t answer, he just stood still beside that big ground whole from where they had come, and analyzed the place. I don´t get it my friend, what are we suppose to do Faun?
Oh, hi there, are you the great Faun? Whispered an acute but loud defiant voice.
Who is there? Asked the Lion, looking up searching for someone to come out of the trees. In the other hand, the Faun showed not even a small sign of surprisement.
What are you doing here already, I wasn´t specting you anytime soon, murmured a big yellow snake sliding from the big brown tree trunk. I hadn´t see you in years my dear friend, she said. Referring to the tall horned Faun.
Oh my dear old Leviathan friend I feel shame to tell you I hadn´t miss you a bit, said the Faun with serenity.
Well, we had our differences in the past but I am sure we can solve things out. The Lion interrupted the snake with a huge loud Roar! Who are you? And what do you want you little beast?
Come on F, please control your little puppy. Tell him to have a little respect for his superiors.
The Lion inmediately tried to run toward the snake, but he failed in his attempt of even moving a muscle. He roar more loudly this time.
Mantain calm Leo, mantain calm. She isn´t worth it, said the Faun.
Oh I am worth it my friend, I have been here just destroying any new creature our father has sent down here. I am sure this new puppet won´t make any difference. After all I feel glad the Lord had the necessity of sending you here with him my brother.
Dumb as always, you just want to manage things the wrong way Levian.
The Faun clapped, and smiled. Here is where you are wrong , Leo won´t commit the same mistakes that the last two creatures so called Adam and Eve made. He is the Lion and he will get to be the king of the jungle one day.
