In the starry night, the light started emerging. The bright light overcame the night and day began. On that special day, a child was born. It was a child of unique abilities and special talents. The child was named Nick, as his late great grandfather and he was promised to do walk the Earth and do wonders.
As he grew older he did not wish to believe this, as the burden of the prophecy was heavy and he had no one to share the burden with. He became rebellious and got into a lot of trouble. He defied the Gods and he screamed: "Lift this burden from me or I will destroy everything known to men!"
Few days passed and nothing changed, then weeks and months. He could not take it anymore. He was ready to destroy everything including himself, he was looking down from the edge of a cliff and he was ready to do the ultimate sacrifice.
At that moment he heard a loud scream behind him. Not far from him was an old man, and he needed help because he fell and he could not get up, his cane broke and he could no longer walk. He saw this young man and ask him for help.
Nick approached him and helped him get up, but the old man could not walk because he could not support himself. Nick found a rock where the man could sit, and he put him there while he ran away into the forest, found the best branch and made a walking stick out of it. When he came back, he gave the old man the stick and said: "now you can walk better than before".
The old man saw this young man for who he was and he saw his greatness, he recognized him and thanked him for his help.
He promised him that he will be ready once the ladder will lean on a huge dice in a vast forest. On that place flowers will grow in vases, mountains will become a part of a sea and the sky will give him more abundance than he is capable of perceiving.
Then, the old man, all covered in the dirt got up and started walking. He no longer required the cane to support himself as his body was light as a feather. Nick looked at him and he couldn't believe that this old man is now walking better than ever. He turned around and saw that mountains are becoming a part of the sea, that the sky has turned into a vortex with infinite abundance and that the old man is climbing a ladder which leans only onto clouds and in between them a huge red dice...
