There once was a God, Tucker, who fell in love with a mortal woman named Lily. They had a lot in common. Lily's family didn't respect the Gods and Tucker's family didn't want him interacting with a mortal
They plotted and plotted to find a way for them to be together, but neither of them could find a way. It was a lost cause. Tucker couldn't come live with Lily, her family would never believe he was human because of his bright, yellow eyes, even if he could shrink to size.
Finally, he came up with an idea...
I'll pull her up here and we will be together. I'll find somewhere to hide you
He would grab her and pull her up by her hands so she could be on Mount. Olympus with him.
She was almost off the ground before they heard a terrible crack... her wrists POPPED OFF
Lily was so worried about what her family would think, she couldn't find an explanation to why her hand and arms were disconnected, so she had to create something to hold them together... a thin, barley noticeable elastic band that she would wear everyday for the rest of her life...
Tucker was so embarassed of what he did him and Lily never spoke again. Her family never found out, they just thought it was an interesting fashion statement.
