Here is a story that I will tell. It will be a story that will probably be a work in progress as most stories should be, until all lessons have been learned and the truth is finally revealed to all through God and His Word. I will give you this story in parts, because it is long. I always appreciate comments or suggestions, as I am only a part of the body and can always learn something new myself. God made us parts and not a whole, so that we would always be dependent on Him first and then would be dependent on each other (this creates a need to always learn to get along with each other, therefore making us, His peacemakers).
Because our desire for fantasy is strong, then this story will be a fantasy. If you see hints of different kinds of mythology or even truths in here, you may be right. But like all fantasies or myths, the point is not to see the reality of the characters, but the lessons that they might teach. Mythology we must remember is based upon the hearts of the lost men who were created in God’s image and we must not forget the angels who have been with us, since the beginning of time. We have a tendency to worship things we do not understand and therefore we created our own myths and made the angels into gods.
A King and His Son part one
There was a King and he had a son. And this son was like the King in every way. The King loved his son so much and knowing that his son was exactly like himself, he gave his kingdom over to his son and he left for another land. From this land, he could watch over his son. He would also be able to rest from the burdens of running a kingdom. This place that he went , only his son would be able to go to . No one else would ever be allowed to enter. And his son was always with him, even when he was away.
The second King had a son and a daughter, but they were not like their father in every way. One had the quality of the love of his father and the other had the quality of the wisdom of her father. These two children were very beautiful and were very happy and were good in every way. But then they grew older and it came time for the new prince to learn how to rule. The princess was also to learn her place and was to always follow the wishes of her brother, the prince. Her role was to help the prince and to be his advisor only.
Because the young prince was full of love but not of wisdom it became very difficult to rule over his sister. He tended to love her, but not to guide her. His sister was wise but not loving and she enjoyed outwitting her brother. In fact she enjoyed it so much that she decided that it was better if she ruled over her brother. So the battle began. The King being very loving and very wise, knew that if he interfered, they would not battle when he was around, but when left alone the battle would renew itself. He knew that he would have to send them away and they would have to battle it out amongst themselves, before they could return. He told them that he would send them to a land where they could prove themselves worthy, and once they proved themselves worthy, then they could return. The prince was to learn to rule over his sister and his sister was to learn to always obey her brother and to help guide him with her wisdom. They must learn that they each were given a purpose and that they must honor and pursue that purpose. They must come to know that each purpose they were given was honorable and good.
Before we go on further let us add to this fantasy, by describing the places you will be reading about. There will be three places. The first world will be where the first King went after he gave his kingdom to his son. This place we will remember, but never visit. The second world will be the place where the second King reigns for his father. The third world will be the land that the prince and princess will be sent to for as long as they battle. The first King remains, as always, as the most powerful and from his home he remains the strongest. And that is why he can keep all from entering his place of sanctuary. Because his son is like him in every way, then he allows only his son to enter his place of rest. The second King like his father has power to control all things and so with this strength he will keep out all that he pleases from the second world. Only the ones that he permits will be allowed to enter his kingdom. The third world is a place where things can evolve so that the inhabitants will be able to adapt to any new changes in their environment that may come about.
Now you must stretch your imaginations to a new level. In fantasies before, we have had elves and fairies and goblins and ghosts and those are fine for other stories, but they just won’t fit here. In this story we have a King and he is the first of all Kings to come. His power is the greatest force of all. The second King has the exact will and qualities as his father, so his father knows that he can give his son unlimited power. Because the second King’s two children do not have all his qualities, he knows that he must limit their power. They will only receive the power that the father gives them. Just as elves and fairies are given names, then it would only be right that we gave all our characters in this story names also. The first King, we will call King Armorustus. The second King we will call King Armorus. The prince, we will call Prince Amor and the princess, we will call Princess Morus.
So let us now journey to the land where the prince and princess were banished to . This new land had inhabitants already, but they could not see or hear the prince or the princess. Since they would be entertaining Prince Amor and Princess Morus unknowingly, but nevertheless entertaining them, we will call these inhabitants, the hosts. The hosts had no power what so ever and so they depended on the world around them for everything. Another characteristic of these inhabitants is that they had no love or wisdom in them and so they had nothing to follow except their instincts that told them that they were hungry or cold or in pain. But they did have some understanding of how things work together and so they could learn from their world around them. In other words, they had brains that made them capable of surviving in their world. All of the inhabitants had different sized brains, according to where they fit in the order of things in their world. All existence was based on this order and there was nothing here to upset this balance. Were these beings happy? That is a good question. They really had no desire to explore outside of their physical needs, so their lives continued on the same for thousands and thousands of years. They had all they needed to eat and drink and be healthy, so they were content with a very simple life.
Nothing new ever occurred in this world, just as one might see in a community of bees or ants, where life continues on the same until something strange or wonderful or disastrous happens. Since nothing different ever occurred here, life continued to go on the same endlessly. That is, until the day, that “they” arrived. To be continued......

I'm on the edge of my seat... :o) waiting for the next part. I love those names you gave them. The prince and princess remind me a lot of people who are not in line with what the Word says concerning marriage and the church. Yes, I saw quite a few little spiritual connotations in there. I'm quite anxious to read more.
