Ananteyahu crawled from the waters which had fathered her first child. She laid her egg in the sand, covering it to keep it safe and warm.
Now it so happened that when the child was hatched Mother Ananteyahu was down at the water’s edge. Gandrahaeshova tore free of his shell and emerged from the sand to find himself alone. Gandrahaeshova, the storm, was angry at being left and he raged, throwing the sand and the water about. Mother Ananteyahu was afraid of her son’s rage and she crawled up the beach and hid in a cave deep in the rock so that Gandrahaeshova could not reach her, and while she hid there she mated with Rock.
Ananteyahu braved her son’s anger to lay her eggs in the sand and there were three of them. The golden egg she named Senyamuhatae and the two silver eggs she named Nomanaedehu and Nomanaedanya. She covered them with sand but Gandrahaeshova tore the sand away from them. He was jealous of the new children and sought to destroy them. Time and again Ananteyahu stood between her son and her eggs but she knew she could not hold out against him for long.
Eventually Ananteyahu took up the eggs and she threw them far out, away from the ground, up into the sky, so high that Gandrahaeshova could not reach them. And since that time Senyamuhatae has shone down on the land by day and Nomanaedehu and Nomanaedanya have shone down by night, a golden egg and two silver eggs.
Again Ananteyahu retreated up the beach but this time she did not seek shelter in the cave, she entered the forest and it was here that she produced her children, the yahu, fathered by Forest and hatched in the warm, damp earth, out of the reach of Gandrahaeshova. Warmed by their brother Senyamuhatae in the day and watched over by their twin sisters Nomanaedehu and Nomanaedanya at night.
