Gratal and Gabardiella were two mountains which were united and in love, which is how lovers tend to be.
But Gabardiella’s father did not approve of the relationship. His daughter was young and beautiful, and Gratal was already an old hill and would surely die soon.
So Gabardiella’s father hired Guara, a heartless killer, to put an end the union. Guara was a professional, and with a single stroke, destroyed the mountain range where Gratal and Gabardiella were together. A sharp blow that did not kill the love that the two had, but it did prevent them from being together. In the gap that was left, Gabardiella shed her tears, creating the river Flumen.
But Gratal was an old hill and had the patience to wait for the right time. When Guara fell asleep, Gratal tore off his own peak and sank it into Guara’s chest. Since that day, if you look at the skyline at the top of Guara, you will see it, lying there, motionless for ever more.
