There once was a nymph named Echo. She was a chatterbox, and would talk nonstop.
In Mount Olympus Hera was looking for her husband Zeus. She thought he probably was down flirting with the nymphs. Hera was furious
When Hera got there the first nymph Hera saw was Echo. Echo started chatting to her. Hera coudn't ask where Zeus was, because Echo was chatting on. Zeus saw Hera and snuck back to Mt. Olympus.
Hera went to talk to the other nymphs and they were all afraid of her temper. Hera blamed Echo that Zeus had gotten away. She gave Echo a curse that made it so Echo couldn't form any words on her own. From that time on Echo could only repeat what someone else said.
One day Echo saw Narcissus. She fell in love with him, but he was so in love with himself that he never noticed her. One day she followed him to a pond.
He knelt down to get a drink and saw his reflection and couldn't believe the beautiful creature behind him. He would not eat or drink and sadly he died. If you go to a pond and call out Echo will repeat what you say.
