"... Several years later, from a taxi, you will see someone in a doorway who looks like her, but she will be gone by the time you persuade the driver to stop. You will never see her again. Whenever it rains you will think of her. ” Neil Gaiman
Answer the riddle and you may pass, what is the thing that can act like glass but can never break, what can give life or your breath take, what can quench fire and melt snow, answer me this and you may go" the fairy smiled at us as she finished her riddle before disapearing into the fog again. I turned to my companion and said "well at least this time there aren't any flaming baboons trying to ax murder us" he gave me an exasperated look "I'd take that over a riddle any day" he groaned.
Chalchiuhtlicue ("She of the Jade Skirt") was an Aztec goddess of love, beauty, youth, lakes, rivers, seas, streams, horizontal waters, storms, and baptism. She was also a Goddess of Childbirth and protector of labouring women. Chalchiutlicue's association with both water and fertility is derived from the Aztecs' common association of the womb with waters. This dual role gave her both life-giving and a life-ending role in Aztec mythology.
