Jason and his wife did not loose heart over this however. One year later Jason's wife was pregnant again. The traveler had moved out of their home and now had a home and a wife of his own who was also pregnant.
The traveler begged Jason and his wife to reconsider...
I don't see why that's necessary. There are plenty of other gods and goddesses who can help me give birth to a healthy baby.
Please listen to what he says.
Please, you must pray to the goddess Artemis this time.
...but they did not. Months later Jason's wife gave birth to a healthy baby boy. The traveler's wife did as well. A year the two families lived happily until Artemis decided to punish Jason and his wife again. She led the child away from it's home and into a nearby forest. Artemis did not want to take the life of another innocent child so she took mercy on it and transformed it in to a bear cub and let it run free.
Jason asked if anyone had seen his child at the daily democratic meetings at the agora but found nothing. After two days later he and his wife realized that if their child wasn't killed the first day is dead by now. They were heartbroken...
...But this time they had learned their lesson. They decided to try one more time and this time pray to Artemis.
Artemis acknowledged this and Jason's wife gave birth to a healthy baby who would this time grow up.
