Klas le måe ube agael.
Ube le çarna.
There was nothing. So Meisa Darag created land and made grass grow on it, trees started to grow, but she was missing something, so she asked Muça Darag to fix that emptiness, she decided to create animals. She took a leaf from a tree, and transformed it into a bird, then she took a flower, and made a squirrel. She continued creating animals, but she realized that they were thirsty, so she asked Yånga Darag for help. Yånga Darag dug large holes on the ground, which he later filled with water, he made rivers and waterfalls. It started to rain, and more flowers appeared. Now there was light.
Naåreg Darag saw what was happening, so he decided to contribute too. He poured water over some sand and sculpted a human body; he then gave it life. The Earth slowly became more beautiful; there were more animals and flowers every day. Lual & Gadeal Darag saw all this happiness, and they decided to create madness, they created diseases, conflicts and more. Now the world was balanced.
It was the beginning.
