Mrs. Hamlett's assignment for creative writing. November 2017.
Zelda was the goddess of the sky. She had a very handsome son named Boom.Boom was quite attractive to the ladies of the sky. But the sky goddess had already planned his wedding. Boom was to marry Xyla, the goddess's friend's daughter.
Zelda had soon found out that Boom had been seeing a young spirit named Enola. She was furious. Zelda decided to trick Boom into marrying Xyla.
Will you marry me?
Yes. I love you Boom!
Boom kept on seeing Enola, and when she decided that the were to get married, Zelda told her husband, god of the trees, that he was to make the trees cover the spot of the wedding. Zelda made the sky very dark on the wedding day, so nobody could see what she was about to do. When the bride walked down the aisle, there was a sweet surprise waiting there for her. Little did Boom know that he was actually marrying Xyla.
I like being sneaky. I now have a rich and adorable husband.
As soon as Xyla kissed him, that was a commitment that could never be broken. When Boom realized that it was Xyla he married and not Enola, he screamed and tried to run away but he couldn’t. Finally Zelda couldn’t take the screaming any more, so she whisked him away in the stillness of the night
This is why we hear the wind whistling in the night. It is because Boom is still screaming for his almost wife.
