Chapter 8 The Confusing Myth Of The Red Blood Moon

  • AUTHOR'S POV
  • Werewolves are, according to some legends, people who morph into vicious, powerful wolves. Others are a mutant combination of human and wolf. But all are bloodthirsty beasts who cannot control their lust for killing people and animals.But guys I promise werewolves are now a lot nicer now and won't eat you up or anything like that,but for the poor cute animals. I am not really sure about them.
  • While some legends maintain werewolves shape-shifted at will due to a curse. Others state they transformed with the help of an enchanted sash or a cloak made of wolf pelt. Still others claim people became wolves after being scratched or most likely bit by a werewolf.
  • These are some of the legendary myths you will get about these mythical creatures when you look them up. Wikipedia commons and the Metamorphoses have a lot to say about the tale of assumedly Snow Hades,Jaden and Jasper King's ancestors.
  • Here is the story of Kings Lycaon,the First Werewolf:
  • Once upon centuries ago, there lived a very powerful king who is very popular across the universe for his wealth and powerful battalion of soldiers. The name of this powerful king is Lycaon. He ruled over the vast land of Arcadia, a land filled with milk and honey , King Lycaon had lots of smaller cities and villages under his control. He also had thousands of men and women under his ruling command. His palace was filled with the best of gold among other rare gems like the sapphire , emeralds and diamonds, fine healthy wine and foods and elaborate masterpiece artwork.The dream reign of every king, as nature will have it. We will not always get what we want or have it all. It was the same in the case of this King, one thing he did not have was love.As a king, different young beautiful ladies were brought to him from across the world but he never felt any deep connection with any of them and he really wanted to marry someone he truly loves.
  • One day King Lycaon was out hunting alongside his royal bodyguards in the forest and he heard a lovely melody being sung that made him trace the voice down into the forest and he came upon a small lake not too far. As he approached it, he saw a young lady sitting at the edge of the lake, singing melodiously while playing a musical harp.
  • Her song was a song full of passion yet it has this harmony of longing in it. Drawn and captivated by the lyrics and feel of her song , King Lycaon dismounted from his horse and approached the young lady who was backing the king; he could only make out her overy long straight and sleepy looking white hair and the pink gown she was wearing. When the young woman senses their presence and turns to face the King,her incredible beauty struck him like a million lightning. Her eyes were as sparkly as the brightest star,she looked like a goddess directly sent from heaven.
  • “My lady, your song is the most beautiful song I have ever heard but yet so depressing at this time. Please tell me what you wish for and I will do everything in my power to grant it, especially if that would not make you lonely again. But first, what shall I call you beautiful one?”
  • “You may call me Fortuna, my Lord. I am indeed distressed because I fear I will never find a man to love till I die. My father is too hard to please and he will not grant permission for me to marry anyone.”
  • The King had already fallen for the beautiful damsel with the lovely long white hair and so he was quick to volunteer to be her lover. I mean any father would be so glad to get his daughter married to a powerful king like him, he thought smugly.
  • “Certainly her father would not deny his daughter from marrying a King! Come with me and I will make you the happiest bride in all the land and the entire universe.”He told her as she led the way to her father's heaven.
  • Fortuna has heard a lot about King Lycaon, despite being rich and powerful. What a great kind king he was to his people and empire. She loved him for that and was very pleased that he was offering his hand in marriage, but said she would only marry him with her father’s approval.
  • “Who is your father?” the King inquired, curious about this man that would not let his beautiful daughter live a happy life with the man she loves.
  • “Well, he is Jupiter, king of the gods.” No wonder she looked like a goddess the king reasoned, her beauty and melodious voice was simple yet divine and out of this world.
  • “My heavens!” King Lycaon exclaimed. “I’ll have to prepare the greatest and most grand feast and celebration in the history of man.”The King put his chiefs in charge to make everything spectacular. He really wanted to impress the great god Jupiter, his soon to be father in law. .
  • King Lycaon proceeded to enlist all of his men and women to prepare the palace in a magnificent manner for Jupiter’s arrival. He had drapes of gold hung from every rafter. Fine food was imported from every corner of the world. And he brought in performers from distant lands to provide luxurious and ultimate entertainment.
  • The King had prepared to luxuriously host Jupiter over the course of seven days. The very first day Jupiter arrived on a golden carriage stepping on the shining cloud from heaven. He was very regal in his flowing royal purple robes, carrying a gold staff. The palace suddenly appeared dull next to his glowing radiance to the awe of even King Laycoan himself.
  • Each day the King would try to engage the god Jupiter in order to impress him with his power and wealth. He gave Jupiter several great expensive gifts of gold,wild pets, furs ,perfumes and even a portion of his kingdom in large amounts, but the god Jupiter offered no more than a simple thank you, not even a smile or an appreciative glance.
  • Throughout the proceedings, Jupiter would hardly look at the King. Feeling greatly insulted, the King tried all the harder to win over Fortuna’s father, but the more he tried, the more Jupiter resented him. The next five days carried on in the same fashion — eating, drinking, and being entertained.Without application or acknowledgment from the god Jupiter. It was becoming deeply alarming and annoying even to the palace residence.
  • If King Lycaon had one flaw it was his temper, he easily gets angered. When he was pushed, it didn’t take very much to set him off. Jupiter knew of Lycaon’s temper and didn’t believe he was a good match for his daughter. In order to push the King past his limit and to test his temper for himself ,Jupiter insulted the King’s mortality. He laughed at how puny and finite the King’s life was .Mocking him of his impending death even if he rules over all the kingdoms of the earth just to get a rise from the King,it was simply a temptation.
  • In retaliation, the King told his head cook to prepare a steak of mortal human flesh, but to make it appear delicious and appetizing. In that way he would take revenge and get back at Jupiter by tricking him into eating the unclean meal.
  • Fortuna was unfortunately out at the market, when the King had his next meal with Jupiter. The cooks served the meal as usual, but Jupiter immediately recognized the ruse. He was a god, little tricks like this can't go undetected by him.
  • “How dare you serve me human flesh! You have insulted me by trying to bring me down to man’s level. In return I will bring you down a level lower than men. For you will roam the world in the form of a wolf from this day forward.” instantly, King Lycaon transformed into a wolf. With a glance back, Jupiter threw away his blessing — believing Fortuna would flee once she saw the King's true form.
  • “You have permission to marry my daughter, but I doubt she’ll want you now that she can see the beast you truly are.”Jupiter said, satisfied with his verdict.
  • Then Jupiter vanished to the heavens leaving the King to tend this mishap.
  • King Lycaon was horrified at what he had become and ran to his bedchamber shutting it because he was greatly ashamed. Luckily, Jupiter’s wife, goddess Juno, was watching the whole scene unfold under her nose. She snuck into Lycaon’s chambers and made a deal with him. If he could control his temper, she promised to mend Jupiter’s curse and make it a lot better .
  • “Yes! I’ll do whatever. Just please free me from this wretched form!”the King begged in tears.
  • Goddess Juno transformed King Lycaon back into his true human form, but warned him that whenever he lost his temper he would turn back into a wolf and that he would not return to human form until he calmed down.Therefore he need to be patient in all situations to avoid reversing the curse.
  • With Jupiter’s blessing, Fortuna and Lycaon got married to each other and lived together happily for a few years. Until one day Fortuna insisted that Lycaon apologize to her father for what he did.King Lycaon became greatly enraged because he felt the god Jupiter should be the one apologizing and not him.Suddenly he shifted into a wolf due to his rage.
  • Fortuna was horrified to discover his curse and finally believed that King Lycaon was indeed a monster the way her father told her. She fled from Lycaon’s kingdom. Little did she know that she was already pregnant with a witch child — the first werewolf child.And this werewolf child happens to be a beautiful goddess princess called Anastasia.
  • Unfortunately the Course did not end with the King Lycaon only, it followed it down to his offlng who carried the course Anastasia too had a life of her own and fell in love with one of her handsome and hardworking horse riders. She told him about her course of turning into a werewolf when it is full moon and he ignored this and agreed to still go ahead and marry her.
  • Anastasia because of her werewolf nature was always kept indoors and away from her friends except one young boy who rails her pony and horses. He was the son of one of the god Jupiter bodyguards and at a young age ,he mastered the art of taming horses. Jupiter thought it was a good idea for a young boy to keep his daughter company when she couldn't stop demanding for a horse and a friend. Killing two birds with one stone at a go.
  • Anastasia grew up with this boy and they grew in love with each other too. I mean, when a handsome lad is the only human you associate with apart from your parents,who wouldn't fall?
  • Anastasia married her bodyguard Thor and during love making and a night of pleasure she mistakenly Bulite her fawns into his neck and he started transforming and shapeshifting into a werewolf. Jupiter was greatly enraged and regretted starting this unending course especially when it affected his daughter and granddaughter's life and happiness.
  • Jupiter then went to Denarius the Guardian goddess to help me revert back the course but she told him his prophecies and curses are too strong. The only thing she can do is to make werewolves a little less vicious and have a bit of humanity to them. But Denarius, who happens to be the guardian of the heavens, demanded something from Jupiter and all werewolf races every year, which is four years of human race.
  • Denarius's only condition is that after every four human years on the leap year and date which will be called the blood moon ,every female werewolves above eighteen years of age and still haven't found his or her mate will have no choice but to turn into a guardian wolf with lots of sacrifices.
  • The Young and men will renounce all rights to get married and have offsprings. If they disobey and get married later on,both they and their partners will turn into werewolves forever till they die.
  • The rather fortunate women and men according to Denarius will dedicate their services to become guardians for the werewolves.
  • Guardians are blessed with special ability to prophecy and foresee what will happen in their future.They also play a key role in deciding the sacred code of conduct and decide the appropriate way to punish any werewolf that breaks the rules or poses a threat to the werewolf pack.
  • Anyways,trust guys with their high testosterone levels to always mark or mate someone while humping goodies. It was recorded over time that females have the high chance of becoming guardians ,well that was in the early century. What happens to those who lose their virginity to lesbians is still a mystery but they keep in touch for more impending twists to the myths.
  • Because Jaden Kings and Snow Hades, your two amazing yet stubborn rule crashers will definitely tell us if history actually has a hold on the present or if our destiny really lies in our hands.
  • Coughs. This is making so sound like some history teachers or well keep your finger crossed for your favorite Virgin werewolf Snow now that the Blood Moon I'd fast approaching and we both agree ,she is too sweet not to pass any of that to a younger version.
  • The most interesting myth is yet to be told.
  • I mean,you all will be wondering just like the Alaska Pack keep murmuring among themselves. Yeah, you are right.
  • The ruler Kings has two Alpha heirs to the throne and it has never been recorded of two leaders. One had to sit on the throne. Jasper Kings, well Jasper Kings might be the first as humans will say since he kinda popped out first but down in the werewolf realms the first to get conceived as a seed is considered the first twin. That should be Jaden Kings right?
  • To go by the rolling sacred law of the werewolves. The easiest way to settle this apart from a fight to death is that one twin has to fight the other till death to claim the throne or if they are lucky enough to have a blessed werewolf among them.The one she married gets to have the throne.
  • What's special about blessed wolves? They are the defendants of Denarius directly. This is a great reason on its own.
  • Bla bla bla. Your questions will soon be answered. Hang on there, the blessed wolf is the lady who breaks her virginity on the blood moon night. I really can't explain the concept behind all these sacred laws and sex things but with time we will definitely catch up. Let's wish our beloved heroes and heroines all the best in their unconscious quest and battle against fate and destiny.
