You know I can't live forever like you can, right?
I know, but I wouldn't bear a day without you
I didn't even get his name
On a wonderful autumn day, Iris was off to do her messenger work for Hera.
After all the years...
Thanks for helping, I'm feeling a lot better now.
Don't cry... it's okay!
As Iris was flying, she spotted a man in the grass and after hanging out everyday, they fell in love.
The man was getting very sick as he got older and Iris knew he wouldn't last much longer.
The man died and Iris was devastated, so her sister, Arke, tried (and was successful) to cheer her up.
Iris's main emotions were so strong, that they turned into colors: red for angry, yellow for happy, and blue for despair.
The colors mixed, making the three secondary colors. Her emotions never left heart, so the rainbow followed where ever she went. This is why we sometimes see a rainbow, a sign that Iris was just in that area.
