Jewelry from the Dreams of the Dragonfields Treasures, made by V. Castellanos

Nagakanyaka, the snake girl, was ready to join the game. She knew that Hadron had already made Ataxia a mother five times over and Behgonay Ghizig had made Kumudini the mother of uncountable stars and constellations, the Seven Sages and the Zodiac as well as the great ocean, Nab Okeani. So, Naga put on her perfume and painted her eyes. She dressed in a sequined gown and slippers, wrapped herself in clouds of veils and went to the end of the universe to wake up Lacuna.

Lacuna opened his eyes and he was impressed. He followed Nagakanyaka home and he gave her seven eggs, which was exactly what she wanted. Sad to say, after Naga got what she wanted she forgot completely about Lacuna and he eventually drifted away while Nagakanyaka, who after all was a cold blooded creature, hummed, polished her eggs and hardly even noticed he was gone.
Each one of her eggs was a different color; vivid gold, vibrant green, intense red, intriguing blue and unappealing gray, but two were black and the first to hatch was the bright, black, shinny one which was perfectly round. Without a word or a warning it began to spin and it spun round and about, fast and faster, until it became a blur and Nagakanyaka became dizzy watching and, then, like a bubble bursting, it split open wide, pieces flying everywhere. Out of it popped Oíche, the Queen of the Night, the Dragon of the Night, the Night itself, and the whole world was swallowed up in darkness. Without a sound Oiche spread her dark wings, rose into the sky and her covered all that was in mystery and Nagakanyaka was pleased that Oíche was not invisible like Ataxia’s children.
