The Arrival of Blue

The first color created was Blue.

Blue looked around and saw he was the only color there was, and so Blue got an attitude right away.

Blue declared himself the greatest color of all time and forever, and since no other color existed at the moment to challenge such an assertion, Blue’s declaration became the law of the land, according to Blue.

The second color created was Pink.

Blue understood that other colors would be arriving soon, and so, thinking tactically, Blue took Pink as a lover and dominated her, mostly by convincing her of the importance of birth order.

The third color created was Yellow, who appeared medicated and happy.

When Red arrived on the scene, Red tried to claim Pink as one of her own, as per common sense, according to Red, specifically that Pink is so obviously a shade of red. But Blue denied this, saying Pink was created before Red, so Red is no mother to her. This served to redden Red, for Red did not believe in the importance of birth order as Blue did, but rather, like all of us perhaps, she believed in her version of justice and the application of power to that end.

In the first great battle between Blue and Red over Pink and other things, nothing significant happened other than Blue surrendering quickly and Pink and Yellow retreating from the scene and meeting up with Green when she was born, and Pink and Yellow and Green quickly becoming best of friends before all the rest of the colors arrived.

fazlisa, yellow is female. all colors, except for all the shades of blue, white and a few grays are female.

There is a language here that appeals to the little child in all of us.
That's what makes me not just read this, but enter it.

It's all imagination, and wishful...wouldn't it be great if this is what happened??
