Jupiter walked around a corner and he saw the beautiful Io, he was directly in love.
Juno saw that Jupiter did something with Io, so she decided to get a better view of what was happening. Jupiter didn't want that Juno should know what he was doing, Jupiter transformed Io in a beautiful cow.
Jupiter said to Juno that he was admiring a beautiful cow. Juno said to Jupiter that such a nice cow shouldn't be safe in a dangerous world like this. Juno said that she would take care of the cow and that she should guard Io. The guard was Argus, the man with hundred eyes.
Jupiter let Mercury come to him. Jupiter said to Mercury that he had to rescue Io and to get her to a safe place. Jupiter wanted that Mercury should do it, because he was afraid that Juno should become angry when Jupiter should rescue Io.
Mercury went to Argus to rescue the beautiful Io. Mercury had thougt of a ruse. He talked to Argus, he made jokes and he did it all night long. Argus became so tired that he fell asleep, to never wake up again. When Argus fell asleep, Mercury took his chance to rescue Io.
In rememberance of Argus, Juno took off all the eyes of from Argus and put them on a nice bird. This bird became a peacock. That's how a peacock comes to his eyes.
