The Eqlmundi Kirwela of Culev Larsze
A woman came into a small town in what we call India. She was a striking woman with a kind face and she was riding on the back of a Sabertooth Tiger. Her name was Culev Larsze.
The people of the village gathered around her, the kids especially. But they kept a little distance, of course. Culev Larsze nodded, but she did not say a word.
One of the kids was a girl named pSegolene and she had a pet lizard--a kind called a Rockmary Lizard. Now, Rockmary lizards make wonderful pets because they are one of the few lizards that can read your mind. Very special. Everyone loved pSegolene's lizard.
By now, Culev Larsze had still not spoken. Then she climbed down from her Sabertooth Tiger, standing next to it and she began to stare into space: She was having a vision. After a while her vision was so real everyone else started to see it too.
It was a vision of a tower of wisdom (called an Eqlmundi Kirwela) that was so tall it went up into the sky, through the bottom of the ocean, and into the clouds again. It was a kind of monastery with an incredible library and hanging gardens and maybe even villages along it.
In fact, this vision was so real that the Rockmary lizard jumped off pSegolene's shoulder, ran across the ground and climbed up the tower--even though it was only a vision!
Everyone laughed. This broke the spell. Culev Larsze's vision disappeared and the lizard fell to the ground.
The Rockmary lizard was stunned by the fall. A huge bird suddenly swooped down to eat the lizard, but the Sabertooth Tiger jumped on the bird and ate the bird, saving the lizard.
Everyone was happy with the Sabertooth Tiger.
Then suddenly, Culev Larsze could speak, and she told her story:
There were terrible wars in Kymaerica (a part of Kcymaerxthaere) between those who believed in Gods and those who believed in the Worlds. And the gods were always using their super powers to help their followers. Culev Larsze thought that was very unfair. So she decided to trick the gods into staying out of the fighting.
To make a long story short, she tricked them into putting the Armies of the those who believed in the Worlds onto an island where they would be safe. But by then she had already tricked the gods into not helping their armies reach the island.
Culev Larsze only made one mistake--she smirked after she got her way. The gods were angry. Kmpass, the Urgend God of Directionality, the one who is always trying to make the world too simple, said she must be punished.
And so they punished her by taking away her gift of language. She did not even have a voice in her head. She could not even talk to herself when she saw her reflection in a pool of water. They said her curse would be over only when she spoke without words, to one without words.
She wandered for years. But when the Rockmary lizard climbed her vision of a tower, at that moment Culev Larsze had finally spoken without words, to one without words--and the spell was broken.
Culev Larsze had been speaking for a long time. In fact, it was now sunrise. And, as the sun came up, people could see that the tower was there--for real. It had been built by her telling of the story to the village.
If you visit this village today, you can see a mural done by the children after hearing this story. As well, there are five slabs of concrete, each with a portion of the story, marking the corners of what was the Eqlmundi Kirwela.
