Beings from all the realms witnessed and glorified the Gods for their noble deed. But not everyone was with the same mind and heart. Some disapproved of man's worthiness and claimed the civil hand for themselves secretly fearing the Gods' wrath if they openly laid their claim. The desire lurked like the long dark shadows of the deep woods and drew darker and stronger lines with the light from the godly moon.

Thus, the Lesser Gods summoned the Michums (Little People) from the forgotten realm and struck a bargain with them to steal the spoons. The Michums would be rewarded with the key to the hidden door that led to the world of men and find their way into the stories for children. They will be remembered and thus not fade away into time.
So, even today the Michums find their way into the houses of men and take away the spoons when it is the darkest of nights.
If you don't remember your spoons they disappear from your kitchen closet and if you ever wonder why; the Michums took them.
