Long, long ago when only animals walked the earth’s surface, there lived a very strange animal. It was different to all other animals around the world. It could fly, run very fast, it was extremely muscular, and had teeth bigger than a sabre tooth’s. It was called a leagle. Although its features sound very aggressive, this animal in fact was very kind and generous to other animals. It lived in a cave on the beautiful island of Niue.
A little north of this beautiful island lay a dark and isolated island. No land animals, no sea animals, no nothing. Just one cave surrounded by bones of dead animals. This island was Kiribati. Inside the lonely cave lay a cruel and selfish animal. It was the most feared creature in the whole world. T was the Chrino. Once a week this creature would swim around the world and bully all the other animals. He would tell them to give him food, and come about the same time the next week to collect the food for himself. If they didn’t have what he wanted, he ate them! Leagle did not know about this nonsense until one day, a bird came past calling for help. Leagle heard his call and reacted quickly to his yell for help. The bird told leagle what the chrino had done, killing his brother because he had refused to give Chrino food. Soon after, leagle and chrino had a fight and leagle won.
