Phila, the Whirl of Wind

A myth submitted to the site by Crystal

Athens, Greece

Have you ever reliedd on someone too much? Did it get you into trouble? Throughout history, people have been relying on people to make sure they do everything. Well this story got Helena, Candice and Avella into a very bad situation! Listen closely…

One day, there were three girls called Helena, Candice and Avella. They lived in Athens. They wasted all their crops by eating them all up in the winter. They went to Zeus, the main god in Greece, and asked him for more crops each and every day. The last time they begged for crops Zeus had enough! He was so mad he came up with a cunning plan to punish the sisters for taking him for granted.

With his powers, Zeus created a ferocious lion with wings entirely out of sand and water. The goddess Athena breathed life into the big lion and named it Phila. Zeus used the lion to make a whirl of wind to go after the sisters! When Helena, Candice and Avella came with empty baskets, Zeus refused to give them some food. The sisters started to argue with Zeus but then stopped. Just then, Phila swooped out of the sky and turned into the powerful wind and chased after the three sisters.

Every time they waste things and take Zeus for granted, he sends Phila down to them. People in Greece name this a ‘Tornado.’ You should never waste things that are yours.
