Aphrodite and the Morgon

A myth submitted to the site by Kimran


Long ago in a land far away their lived a goddess named Aphrodite, the goddess of battle strategy. Aphrodite was on a quest to find the amulet of Tara. So far, she had, had no luck.

After many days on human land, Aphrodite had scrutinized sunny, sandy beaches and smelly, revolting sewers. Giving up was her next option but then a bulb lit up inside her head. She wondered why she didn’t think of this before. Diving head first, from a fluffy cloud, she landed in the vast, deep blue ocean.

As she swam to the bottom of the sea Aphrodite recognised and appreciated the beauty the ocean withheld. Soon she came to a rocky cave full of coral. Inside the tangled, orange coral there was a peculiar box. Also there was an amulet, which had a sapphire bejewelled in the middle. The amulet of Tara! Aphrodite brought both the box and the amulet to Mount Olympus.

Once at Olympus Aphrodite gave Zeus the eerie box to inspect. He let Aphrodite keep the box with a warning. The warning was:

If anything happened to anyone at Olympus you will pay!
One year later, a new sorcerer, Kerlin, came to Olympus to show Zeus her powers. Kerlin had to share a room with Aphrodite. She had almost forgotten about the mystical box. One ordinary day Aphrodite was sitting in her room admiring her beautiful treasures. She soon came across the box that was forgotten about. Suddenly she heard trickling water and smelt rotting flesh. Turning her head to the box she saw that the lid had burst off. Water overflowed the box. Snakes slithered and spiders crept out. Terrified, bewildered, worried Aphrodite backed away…

Suddenly a water Morgon emerged from the box. A water Morgon is the most cruel and cunning creature ever to set foot in all dimensions. Aphrodite grabbed her sword ready to fight but the Morgon, who had green gruesome scales, was too strong for her as he made her collapse on the floor…

Getting back on her feet, she staggered towards her treasure shelf. Protecting it using her arms, that now turned pale white; she made sure there wasn’t even a scratch on her precious belongings. The Morgon may have had green scales on his body but its face was a sickly PINK. She was blinded by the vibrant face. Unable to see Aphrodite protected herself using her razor sharp, gleaming sword. But still the water Morgon scraped her skin leaving blood dripping all over her.

Aphrodite had never been beaten before and wasn’t going to start now!
Remembering Zeus’s fatal warning, Aphrodite stood up tall ready to fight even though she was still blinded by his fluorescent face. Waving her sword around like a maniac Aphrodite only got one hit on the Morgon. Out of nowhere Kerlin burst into the room with her new concoction ‘Leminosa‘ in a glass bottle. Reacting quickly Kerlin splattered the Morgon with the bubbly potion. Soon the Morgon was paralyzed. Aphrodite plunged the sword into the Morgon’s chest. Defeating, him once and for all.

A day later Aphrodite let the box go in the vast, blue ocean she found it in. She watched it float away into the unknown…
