But all good must come to an end, for the humans that had been created in such likeness to the gods of the Heavens began to grow arrogant in their 'perfection'. They stopped paying attention to their creator and began trying to seize dominion over the world and ignoring the gods that had ruled over them. This angered the young god and so he created 'miseries' and unleashed his fury upon his insolent creations. Death, pain, sorrow, war... all were cast upon the humans and their unearthly wails of despair filled the air and traveled to the ears of the rest of the gods.
Soon, even the mother of the young god, the goddess of creation, heard the cries of sadness that filled her eyes with tears. She grew disappointed in her son, for his arrogance had blinded him and his own creations that were so like the gods had begun to think just like him. The act could not be undone and so she punished her son by banishing him from the Heavens, charging him with the task of living upon the world he had created for 500 years so that he may open his eyes and become humbled.
As for Nede, the humans began to destroy the world and the other gods could only watch with sorrow as the once proud and perfect world crumbled and decayed away under the onslaught of sin. They gathered together and decided to protect the last remaining beauty that was on this world, and thus created what could only be called 'Paradise' or 'Eden' on earth.
Only this forest was saved from the shadows of disease and its beauty remains; untouched by human hands and scorn and pure in the relics of what once was.
It was here that she had resided for several years now, saved by a kind soul after her friends and family had fled from the tides of danger within the deep depths of the ocean.
She had lived here for far too long that she no longer needed the sea to live, for indeed the plant-life had found its way to grow on top of her as her once red hued mane became leafy and green like the foliage of the tall trees that graced the skies.
Wherever she trotted, flowers bloomed under her hooves as her tail dragged behind her; a remaining feature of her once sea-dwelling days. The creatures that resided in the forest knew her and their chatter brought peace to her being as she laid down in a small clearing where the warmth from the sun peaked through the green leaves of the trees.
As the sun's rays touched her face and back, she tilted her head upwards to welcome a new day.
