- The Gentle Waves of March -

Sunlit Tides Balneary, Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala - 5 p. m.

The sun was setting on the beautiful horizon of Sulint Tides. Anael was lying on a hammock, watching the clouds slowly moving away from his sight; the sky seemed to be changing quite slowly.

His eyes were half opened, and his countenance was serene. He was blinking slowly and gently, as if he wanted to get some sleep. All he could hear was the sound of the waves to his left. He looked at the sea, admiring its perfect waves.

[Anael] - *Thinks, closes eyes* I wish I didn't have to go back to my town... To my double life... Wish I could just stay here, staring at the sea...

He took a deep breath and half-opened his eyes, looking at the sky once more.

[Anael] - *Sings* In the forest, deep inside / Over cunning trees, tangled in vines, you'll find/
                            Remains of stealthy Scouts*, they all fade away...

[Anael] - *Takes Corazon of Guatemala, looks at it* Sargent, did you find/ Land of Giant Snake**, doom for Men?/ Or did you hurt its head (and) fell on the River/ in Maria's symphony?

[Anael] - *Puts the Corazon of Guatemala in his chest. Looks at the sky* When the soldier*** sweeps away/ He shows that the dream of Honorato was true/ A life lost he will find again/ Hear the call of the depth of the Caninana**** song/  do you dare enter the river?/ Hear the call from below of an underwater world/ Land of Giant Snake is close to the stars/ in the arms of Amazon River you'll live as hypnotized...

[Anael] - *Looks at sea* Call of Boiuna*****, the Giant Amazon River Snake, rise!

When he looked at the bright waters of the sea, he could swear h saw a female form in its waves. His eyes widened and became full of tears. Could it be her?

[Anael] - *Sad* When the soldier sweeps away/ He shows that the dream of Honorato was true/ A life lost he will find again/ Hear the call of the depth of the Caninana song/ Do you dare enter the river?/ Hear the call from below of an underwater world/ Land of Giant Snake is close to the stars/ in the arms of Amazon River you'll live as hypnotized...

He slowly blinked, and the image on the sea disappeared. His countenance, which once was serene, was now gloomy. He gave a final look to the Corazon of Guatemala, pressing it against his chest. He closed his eyes and felt as if flutes were being played near his ears. He let the smooth sound of the waves and flutes penetrate his mind and invade his thoughts, sleeping on the hammock as the night finally began.

To Be Continued...

Glossary:

The Lyrics sang by Anael are based on Therion's Lemuria; the original lyrics can be read here.

(*): Scouts - the explorers whose campaings allowed Brasil to have far more area than originally. These men are called "Bandeirantes" in Portuguese.

(**): Giant Snake or Honorato/ Norato Snake (Cobra Honorato/ Norato) - a good, giant snake raised in Amazon River, son of an indigenous woman with Boiuna, the Giant Snake. At night, he could become a man and live a normal life. In order to become a regular human, someone must spill milk in his mouth and injure his head while he was in his snake form. He was the benevolent Snake twin, the counterpart of Maria Caninana.

(***): The Soldier - The man who made Honorato become a normal person.

(****): Maria Caninana - Honorato's evil twin, she was killed by him on the day he got tired of her evil deeds.

(*****): Boiuna - father of Maria Caninana and Honorato. He is the mythological version of Sucuri, the animal in which his myth was based.
