This is the real story of how chocolate created Part 1:
Once there was a spirit name Choc. Choc was the protector of the village near the sea. The villagers were quiet people, working for their survivor. One day a stranger came to the village. All people welcome him and they offer him shelter and food. The stranger told them his name was Gloomy.
Gloomy liked the place and started making friends with all the people. He was very different with the villagers. His clothes were fancier, prettier and his accent, it was nothing they have ever heard before. Villagers visiting Gloomy’s house to hear stories from places he had visited.
“I come from a place far away from here”
“How far?” A man asked
“Further that your imagination goes” Gloomy replied.
“How is there?” Another man asked
“From where I came from all people are dressed like me. They don’t work as hard as you do, but they have more time for their families and friends” Gloomy respond.
“But if they don’t work how they ensure that their table will have food?” a girl asked.
“My dear child. From where I come from people are so generous that they give jobs to other people, so they share their work with others, who don’t have work. I’ve been travelling from town to town, village to village, to learn new things, to see the world”
People were amazed of what Gloomy said. All the stories he was telling them sound so magical, they believed he was more than a simple man.
Choc was worried about the new villager. He sow that people stop coming to him for advice, to talk to help them solve their problems, and they went to Gloomy. Choc agreed that what Gloomy said was right, and he gave good solutions to peoples problems. Choc was happy, from one hand, that someone could guide those people, but on the other hand, there was something wrong about him. Spirits can feel the danger from miles.
Everyone believed that Gloomy was the nicest person in the world. They didn’t new what Gloomy actually wanted from this village. He started poising peoples mind. He was talking to each villager individually:
“You know from where I come from, people using this to pay for nice things, things they like, instead of trade them with other items”
Gloomy took out of his pocket a small bag. In side there was some shinny round things, some in the colure of sun and some in the colure of silver.
“Those called coins” Gloomy continued “With them you can buy anything. You know not all places accept to exchanges goods with goods. If you have lots of them you become the most important person in the village”
“We don’t make such things here Gloomy” people explained. We are happy the way we trade” they told him.
“ Once you start using them you’ll see they will start multiplying more and more, as other people from other villages cities will come with coins to buy from your village. You my friend will be better that anyone else in here” He smiles and left them thing about it.
People had started thinking ho many good things they could buy if they only had started using coins instead of exchange products. They liked the idea of being the most important person in the village.
Gloomy also said: “Having people working for you is very important if you want to remain the popular person”
