Oceans

Long ago, when the creator of the waters, Oceans, lived all alone, she became sad and gloomy. She got so sad and gloomy she decided to create something that was all hers. So she had the worlds largest ice cube made for her personally. Within the next 6 weeks all she did was sit on that ice cube eating peanuts. After every peanut the salt would fall into this puddle of water that she was creating. After sitting on the ice for over a century, it finally melted and all that was left was the water full of salt. She thought the smell was extraordinary and refreshed with the salt. She decided to taste the water and since it was full of salt thatĘs all she could taste. As she walked along this puddle she felt a cool autumn breeze and as the sunset she watched the water glisten, wishing that she could be one with the puddle she slowly lost conscientious. So within the next day as she awoke, she gradually walked toward the horizon and was never heard of again. To this day we know the puddle as the Ocean for when she died it was her that was one with the water so they called it the Oceans.
