The face in the lake

Zeus came to the lake, everybody followed him. Zeus’ brother, Eliza was very jealous,. Whenever he followed ,Arac would step in front of him, and talked nonstop. Elza was furious so he cursed him. “ You will only be able to say the first words people say!” said Ellza Arac was so sad he went around the lake to the beach, there hes saw Lilac. He ran, and threw his arms around her. “ Get off me,” cried Lilac.” Get off.” said Arac dreamly. “ Go away,” said Lilac, and ran away. Arac walked over to a tree,and went to sleep.Lilac was picking up sticks, and one dropped in to the lake, Lilac went to pick it up and saw someone in the water. She went to shake her hand, and only touched water. Lilac got so angry that she threw her sticks, then the person in the water also threw sticks. Then she learned it was only her reflection. Day after day she came back back to the lake. One day she went to go get more food, and realized she missed her reflection so much she went right back, and stayed there. Lilac didn't eat or drink water, then one day she got really sick. A week later later she died. Arac was sad, but kept living. When Arac went looking for Lilacs’ body all he found was a Lilac.
