I got some great idea.
The first story of creation ends with "b'hibaram" in Genesis 2:4.
אֵלֶּה תוֹלְדוֹת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְהָאָרֶץ בְּהִבָּרְאָם
It is the story in which the name of God, the Tetragrammaton, doesn't occur.
The first time the name of god is mentioned is Genesis 2:4b.
בְּיוֹם עֲשׂוֹת יְ-ה-וָ-ה אֱלֹהִים--אֶרֶץ וְשָׁמָיִם
Which I do think is the openingsverse of the second story of creation.
בְּהִבָּרְאָם, is written with a small letter "hey".
I saw it matches the large written letter "bet" in "b'reishit", the first word of the Torah.
בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ
(Just that both the small "hey" and the large "bet" must hang on the upperline- but I can't get that done).
As a reading-indication:
"With "reishit" God created the heaven and the earth" matches:
"these are the generations of the heaven and the earth that were created with the letter "hey" '.
So: "reishit" = the letter "hey" that was added to "shishi", etc.
