What you are about to read is an original Myth created by my son. He wrote this as part of a project for his Honors English class in High School. His assignment was to write and original Myth, explaining how something came to be. He was to use at least three Greek and Roman Gods or Goddesses in his story, as well as characters he invented. Since their course of study was Mythology, my son decided to explain Magic. Without further adieu, here is his Myth:

How Magic Came To Be.......

One dark and misty night atop Mt. Olympus, an amazing thing happened. Gothik, God

of Darkness, was strolling through the flower garden. Although he felt gloomy that evening, he

started to feed all the white doves which were perched on nearby bushes. He watched how they

flew effortlessly through the darkened atrium. Gothik also noticed how Luna’s moonlight

touched their wings and made long shadows on the pavement. Gothik became lost in thought for

the next several hours.

Meanwhile, Balderdash who is the God of Confusion, was also outside taking a mid-

night walk. Balderdash was trying to clear his mind after having a very busy day. Suddenly he

heard the noise of fluttering wings in the distance. Balderdash followed the intense sound until

he saw Gothik sitting in a remote garden area. Balderdash began to approach slowly, so as not

to startle his friend. He arrived inside the garden to see several doves flying about, lighted only

by bright moonbeams. Gothik soon noticed Balderdash and they exchanged welcomes. After

they briefly told each other of their days’ events, both began to think about the doves.

The beautiful white doves flew and dipped within the light of the moon. As they passed

outside of the atrium, they seemed to disappear into the darkness. When the doves flew back

into the garden, they seemed to reappear from nowhere.

Gothik and Balderdash both had an idea at the very same time. They thought that

combining their realms, bringing darkness and confusion together, they could bend reality.

They would be able to trick people into thinking something was not there. The two also figured

out that they could make people believe anything. People would see doves vanish and reappear,

as well as other seemingly impossible things.

It was at that moment, Athena, Aphrodite and Hera walked into the garden. The three

girls saw Gothik and Balderdash talking. They also saw the beautiful doves vanishing into the

darkness and reappearing back into the moonlight. To the girls, the whole scene looked so

unreal. Athena, Aphrodite and Hera walked over to Gothik and Balderdash and began to talk.

They demanded to know what tricks these two were up to.

Balderdash and Gothik were forced to think quickly. They agreed to tell Athena,

Aphrodite and Hera everything, provided the three girls took an oath of secrecy. The girls really

wanted to be part of something special, so they all agreed to never break the oath. The three girls

often assisted Gothik and Balderdash when presenting these tricks for others.

Word spread fast about all of the strange things Gothik and Balderdash were doing.

Soon, people from all over would pay their hard earned money to see the wonderful tricks being

presented within the flower garden. Often times, the tricks were so amazing the audience would

cheer and clap loudly. Balderdash and Gothik were pleased with their creation. Athena,

Aphrodite and Hera were also glad to be part of the show.

Gothik and Balderdash, with the agreement of the three girls, decided that they would

call their new found fun, Magic. They also agreed to never tell anyone about their secrets. This

oath was given the name, The Magician’s Code. Darkness and Confusion would become one,

from that day forward.

This then is how magic came to be. The magicians code became part of both realms;

darkness and confusion. Gothik and Balderdash were the first two to present their magic for the

world. All they ask in return is, for the readers here, to keep their secret safe.
