The Goddess of Good Luck

A myth submitted to the site by Travis

Once upon an island a baby was born to goddess Ariadne and King Alcemy. Her name was Aresa and she wasn't the only daughter. Ariadne had been bewitched and gave birth to a baby every year. The curse was lifted six years after Aresa. She was the first offspring and the most perfect.

Ariadne always was whispering about her precious daughter to all her maids. "Aresa is good luck. A day after she was born the Ozera war end." The maids gossiped to the farmers who always told their wives. The whole Vordakar Archipelego knew about the lucky Aresa.

Aresa hadn't chosen a husband though millions of suitors came to her palace. Finally she chose a man that had fought in the Ozera war. She then stayed with him for four years and had a child. On the the year the baby was born Aresa learned that her husband only married her for her money. She was heart-broken and left the Vordakar Archipelego.

She traveled to Ozera with her child and lived a very lonely life. After this all the local people said she was very unlucky. Aresa trained her child to fight getting her ready if another war came in Ozera. She named her Allila and after that Allila never had bad luck.

Aresa then realized that anything she named would then have good luck for their whole life. She was overjoyed and reported this power to Therdon the king of the gods. She was crowned goddess of good luck and married a kind but poor man. The family had good luck forever.
