Long ago, there was no daytime. There was only nighttime. The sky didn't have a big ball of fire to appear every once in a while to shine upon our land. It only had a big white floating rock and tiny little twinkling dots back then. The world was basically in total darkness.
Luckily, humans had the ability to produce fire with their bare hands. They can manipulate the flames and control the fire with their will. They used this ability to see in the dark, to cook their food and to provide warmth. This ability also measured their greatness. The bigger the flame you can produce, the greater the person people consider you are.
But what if one cannot create a flame that can satisfy others? Jealousy and hatred happened.
Bullied and teased by how small and weak her production of flames are, Helia wanted to grow stronger. Driven by rage, she wanted to end the cruelty that was treated to her. She thought that the only way to grow stronger was to make others weaker.
One by one, she hunted every single person and stole their abilities. She was the only one who could do it because she was the only one who could think of such a wicked act. She did it by holding another person's hands so tight and letting her most selfish desires do the rest.
When she has consumed all the fire from everyone, it was too much for her body to take. She started to transform into something entirely different. She felt the raging heat within her body. She felt excruciating pain and yelled, "It burns! It burns!" Flames were coming out of her skin uncontrollably. It consumed her like how she consumed the abilities of others. She regretted what she had done. But it was too late for that, the fire was eating her alive making her inhuman.
Frustrated, she flew to the skies. While she grew bigger, the pain started to fade away. She was enormous when her flames stopped growing bigger. She realized how powerful she had become when she looked down on her world and saw how she provided light to it. She knew she would not be able to return but she didn't mind at all. She thought that she should stay up in the heavens to provide light and warmth for everyone to pay back her wrongdoings. But still, she hasn't forgotten the bullying that was done unto her, so she decided to appear only for a while in the sky. Then she would leave and let the darkness come back.
Today, we call her the sun.
