Weather War

Calvin 胡凯 200120718

Once upon a time, there was a man with supernatural powers who lived in a small village but could collect weather and change it with his magical bottle. For example, when it was sunny, he could open the bottle to assimilate the sunshine into it and then release it to make the weather sunny when needed.

He made many contributions to the small village with that bottle. When it hadn’t rained for many months, he would open the bottle and release the rain it contained. Suddenly, clouds gathered together, and it started to rain heavily. Everyone was happy because their crops had been saved, and they didn’t need to continue suffering. Also, once, it rained for about a whole month. The river flooded over almost everything and people died. As what you are thinking, he used that bottle to dissipate the rain and be sunny again.

However, if there are heroes, there are evil ones. Don’t you believe that? Let me show you. Carillo, a monster who ate weather, lived near that village as well. It had been killed 500 hundred years before, but as luck would have it, this kind of monster would resurrect every 500 years. And guess what day that had happened? Yes, you are right!

With big earthquakes, storms, weather changing every minute from sunny to cloudy, cloudy to rainy, it was telling people that it had come back. Crops died quickly, and the people were all screaming. But when evil ones come back, heroes will stand against them, or how else would we survive until today? And so, there came the hero.

Carillo ate as much weather as it could, making all the weather in the village disappear without a trace. What would it be like if there were no weather? Think about being on Mars (I know you haven’t ever been there, so just imagine) or any other celestial body which doesn’t have an atmosphere. I bet you get that feeling now. Let’s name our hero Santi. Santi saw what had happened for sure, so he was ready to devote himself to defeating the monster. But how?

Santi knew that the only method to beat Carillo was to use weather. Yeah, its (the monster’s) favorite food. Carrillo could be hurt by certain weather. For example, if it was sunny, its skin would burn, and that's why it ate all the weather.

Fortunately, Santi still had some weather left in his bottle. Santi ran all over the area, releasing a different kind of weather. Suddenly, here it was raining and there the sun was shining. But Carillo wouldn't let things slide for sure. It kept eating all of the weather that Santi released, which became a fairly fierce competition. However, Santi found that it wasn’t really working well because the weather resources he had in the bottle were limited, but Carillo could eat as much as possible. It seemed that the only effective way to beat it was to kill it, face to face. He kept searching and searching, but couldn't find it at all. Carillo was not stupid, it knew where to hide from Santi and kept eating weather at the same time. Obviously, it came to a deadlock.

As things were going, people were suffering still. But don't forget, there is strength in numbers. People noticed that they could give Santi a hand in finding Carillo. They created a signal lamp together, which they would light up when they found a place where the weather was gone. And that worked.

Finally, when Carillo was eating a tornado near a river, people lit up the lamp and Santi came. A war broke out. He tried his best, but it was still neck and neck. Thinking about that if he couldn’t defeat Carillo, the people would die, and the world would be destroyed, Santi decided that he would have to make a sacrifice in order to kill it again. He was a brave man; I have to admit. People saw, that without hesitation, he inserted his weather bottle into his body and suddenly, something colorful filled it. Drawn out, it was thrown to Carillo. It turned cloudy, and Carillo lost all of its energy. It turned rainy, and Carillo's skin started to decompose. It turned misty and Carillo became blind. What’s more, there was thunder, which made Carillo deaf.... Eventually, it turned sunny, and Carillo was burnt and exploded into ashes. It finally died but sadly, not only it; Santi ran out of all his energy, that is to say, he died as well. A gust of wind blew, making Santi’s corpse disappear. But at the same time, trees turned green, rivers became full of water and fish, and people laughed again.

And about 480 years later, I was born, and now I’m already 18 years old! As you can guess, I heard this story from villagers who’ve been happily living here for many years. Oh wait, I remember that they said that Carillo will revive 500 years later after its last death, which means.... Two years from now?

While I’m thinking this, I find that suddenly there’s something in my pocket. As I take it out, I find it’s a... Bottle?
