A Yellowstone Myth Made by Me

A long time ago when the gods of the universe were still at war, they wanted to create a planet. The two most powerful gods, Terrava and Aquid, were given the task of creating the new world. Terrava was the god of lava and earth. Aquid was in charge of all the water jobs. These two gods were enemies and they always fought. The final battle happened in a land where there was nothing else. The two gods fought where Yellow Stone is now. The battle lasted for days. Eventually, Terrava let out an angry cry and exploded with all of his fiery rage. Terrava had made the biggest volcano in the universe. Aquid did not like to lose. When Terrava went back home, Aquid was left on earth. He began to make holes in the volcano, and geysers were created. To this day Aquid is still there, waiting for his super volcano to erupt and to destroy Terrava’s terrible creation.
