One day really long ago king G. was in his garden by himself alone he was thinking over things. He new that he was the strongest person I mean he could pick up mountains I mean gosh how many people you know could do that hum??? None so ok let's continue, he also new that in one breath he could go to the bottom of the sea, gosh I can barely go down 3 feet lower than me, and he new that if he ever fought any of those weird monsters he would freaking win. But he was bored he was like man there's nothing to do wats the point of haveing powers but not being able to use them, I would go crazy if I had nothing to do and I was the most powerful on earth. An you know how he always won well the monsers were afraid of him so he could not fight them, like I am a monster and I say oh I am going to do something bad but, the king comes to fight and I run away in to the forest and stay hidden, man if he was a full god he would just fly over the forest and fined there hiding places and beat them up till they cried no more till they died. So king G. dragged himself to his feet and wandered towards the ziggurat to join his people in prayer. An when he got there people were like wow what the heck is that. He was praying that he some thing to do. Then the gods looked down and king G. And they saw him praying and his wish was fair so they made it happend. Then fast as a flash the gods created Enkidu a big wild man stronger and faster than him she they tried to beat up each other and they started laughing and became freinds and journed to have more adventures. Then when the people and the monsters heard that there king left they parted and they prayed that he and his freind would have advenchers together for a long time.
