The Boy from the Sea

The story of the Boy from The Sea (also known as Gnel Wrangor) was a favorite cautionary tale of mother and fathers throughout Kcymaerxthaere.  He loved building sand castles and he would never listen to his mother's warnings that he had to keep his eye on the waves. Late one day a giant wave crashed ashore, the roar breaking the boy too late from his trance of play. High ground was too far, so he escaped into one of his sand cities, finally diving between the sand grains themselves—just as it washed away. He was safe, but only for a moment—he had not drowned yet, but the surge of water sluiced him into menonterken, the great gorge that in its own way circles the world. It took him far far away where, even as he was rescued by a mostbeautiful sound, he feared his mother would be so angry she would decide to forget him. But her thoughts, you can imagine, were very, very different. These are the pieces of his story we have installed in the world so far.
