The Phoenix died over and over again...

Thousands of years ago, there was Phoenix who lived on a mountain in Saudi Arabia. This Phoenix sang for the sun god named Ra. 500 years past by and the Phoenix grew weaker every day. He asked the sun god if he could help him be young again. Ra agreed to help. But the Phoenix must do as he says. He needs to find twigs, sticks, and myrrh to make a nest. The Phoenix found all the ingredients and stood in the nest. Suddenly the Phoenix burned into ashes and the same Phoenix came out, but it was younger. " Every when you feel like dying just step into the nest." said Ra. From then on the Phoenix lived forever.
