Tanabata and the Story of Orion and Artemis

W: Orion, we’ve finally met! I've missed you all the time!

M: Artemis! You killed me! You shot my head with your arrow! To be honest, it really hurt!!

W: I’m truly sorry, Orion. I was tricked by my malicious brother, Apollo.

M: HOW could you be tricked by your brother and assassinate me? I’ll never forgive you!

W: He hid your silhouette with his darn sunshine! I didn't think it was your head floating on the ocean! It looked like a colossal moving rock.

M: So now you're trying to emphasize that my head looks like a rock? Sorry for having some rough hair! I should have taken care of it with some better hair treatments! Well, WHY would you shoot a moving rock, for god's sake?

W: Because Apollo dared me to show whether I could hit a moving object...

M: Enough of your absurd excuses! My anger towards you is unending, as infinite as the stars!

W: Hey, at least I made you into a constellation! All humans LOVE to see the constellation Orion! You shine bright in the sky!

M: Ah! You don't know how HOT Betelgeuse and Rigel are! I feel like I’m having a daily Finnish sauna!

W: But still, your name will be remembered, and your tale will be told by everyone forever and ever! You can thank me!

M: Oh, my god...

W: Yes. I AM a goddess, by the way!
