A myth about the moon's phases and how they came to be
I, Eemeli, demigod son of Artemis, challenge you, Hakon, son of Hera and Zeus to a race!
I ACCEPT- BE READY TO LOSE SON OF ARTEMIS, YOU'VE CHALLENGED THE WRONG PERSON!
Looks like someone's about to trip and fall! Loosing your balance???
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
ohhhhhhhhhhh, my head, ouch...........
HA HA HA HA- I'VE NEVER SEEN SUCH A WEAK GOD LIKE YOU!!!!! HA HA HA HA HA HA
EEMILI, THE DEMIGOD SON OF ARTEMIS CHALLENGES HAKON, SON OF HERA AND ZEUS TO A BATTLE, HE IS PARTLY DOING IT BECAUSE HE WANTED TO WIN, BUT EEMILI HAD OTHER INTENTIONS.....HE WANTED TO PROVE HIMSELF TO BE BETTER THAN A REAL GOD, SINCE THE DEMIGODS WERE ALWAYS PUT AS INFERIOR THAN THE GODS. THE RACE BEGUN!
You LEAVE ME NO CHOICE- Your beloved moon shall lose all brightness and be consumed by the darkness!
You retched demigod, how DARE you say such words to me! DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU'RE TALKING TO? You will REGRET disrespecting me! I CURSE YOUR BELOVED MOON, THE ONE YOU CARE SO DEEPLY ABOUT! It shall---
Please No, don't do it!
THE RACE GETTING VERY COMPETITIVE, HAKON LOSES BALANCE AND STARTS TO FALL..........
I shall show some formality and some mercy, but I cannot take the full curse back, I shall only lessen its intensity. Instead of losing all its light forever, the moon shall slowly lose its light and slowly gain it back.
Ah, godess Artemis, What could possibly bring you here? To me? Trying to convince me to take back my curse?
You should know that I don't go around pleading help from boys like you, but if I must, for my moon. PLEASE take the curse back, don't do it for Eemeli or me, but do it for the others who would suffer without the light of the moon at night!
AFTER HAKON FALLS DOWN, EEMELI IMMEDIATELY STARTS LAUGHING AND CALLING HAKON WEAK, AS HE'D JUST BEEN GIVEN A CHANCE TO MAKE FUN OF HAKON, FOR ONCE HE COULD MAKE SOMEONE ELSE FEEL INFERIOR.
HAKON IS DEEPLY ANGERED BY EEMELI'S ACTIONS AND HAS DECIDED TO CURSE THE MOON. EEMELI REGRETS HIS DECISION TO LAUGH AT HAKON AT THAT VERY MOMENT. HE GOES TO SEEK HIS MOTHER, ARTEMIS, GODESS OF THE HUNT AND THE MOON, TO HELP HIM AND SHE IS DEEPLY ENRAGED BY EEMILI'S ACTIONS AND GOES TO HAKON..........
AS GODESS ARTEMIS APPROACHES HAKON AND CONVINCES HIM TO AT LEAST LESSEN THE CURSE'S INTENSITY, NOW THE MOON WILL SLOWLY LOSE ITS LIGHT AND SLOWLY GAIN IT BACK. THIS IS HAPPENS OVER ABOUT A 30 DAY TIME AND EEMELI NEVER DARES TO LAUGH AT ANYONE AGAIN, INSTEAD HE DISAPPEARS INTO THE SHADOWS OF DARKNESS, NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN
EVER SINCE THEN, THE MOON HAS ALWAYS GONE THROUGH PHASES, LOSING ITS LIGHT AND GAINING IT BACK, AND THIS IS HOW WE GET THE MOON'S PHASES.
