Story: Seven Sisters
The Seven Sisters lived on earth with their father, who loved, adored & was very protective of them. He did not want his seven daughters to marry. One day a man came along and was looking for a wife. He saw the Seven Sisters and desired to marry one of them and chased them around to get one of them. The father found out and protected them from him by taking them to the sky. When the man learned that the Seven Sisters were taken there, he too went to the sky and found them and started to chase them around the sky. They travelled around fast to get away from him but there was a slow sister, who was always slow and behind the Seven Sisters.
The man eventually got one of the sisters as his wife.
