Look, the King of Ephesus tried to take away one of your nymphs. I heard her screaming just a few minutes ago. He left her and is swimming away right now.
Meanwhile, back in the woods, Artemis scowled at Apollo for what happened the previous night. Apollo told her to calm down and told Artemis a lie. A lie that would kill Orion.
Apollo made Artemis kill her friend, Orion. Artemis mistakes him as the king in which Apollo lied to her about.
Later, when Artemis goes to check on the nymphs, she realized that Apollo lied. She realized that she killed Orion.
When she asked Zeus and Hades to bring Orion back, it was too late. Orion's soul was already in the Asphodel Fields.
So, in memeory of Orion, Artemis hung him as a constellation. And as a warning to all, she also hung up the scorpion.
And to this day, you can see Orion and the scorpion (known as Scorpio) fighting at night, when the sky is clear.
