The Story of the Seven Sisters
Long ago, before there was time or stars or many of the things that we know today, there lived seven sisters who were the daughters of Net, the Queen of the Sky. Now, the sisters could have lived in the infinite palaces of their mother’s realm, but the sky was really big and really empty in those days, and at night it was terribly cold and dark. So the sisters chose instead to live in a small cottage on top of the tallest mountain in the world. It was a bit crowded with seven people in such a small house, but the sisters enjoyed being in each other’s company, telling long stories and sharing delicious meals around the fire. That was why they lived together after all.
