HOME HOW MYTHWhy do humans blush when they’re embarrassed? A very long time ago, there lived a God named Hermadeus. He was a strong andpowerful man, of which many people despised of. Although most people held hatred towardsHermadeus, they could not protest against him for he was their God. Hermadeus was so powerfulthat the humans seemed almost helpless against him. Hermadeus had two young assistants,Keldon and Mylan, who acted as his servants. Day after day, he would order them to do multipletasks, making their lives as miserable as he could. If either of his assistants were ever to die, hewould select new assistants for him to torture. For the people, they all dreaded the ‘Selection Day,’for no one wanted to be chosen as his new assistant. Keldon and Mylan were the two assistantswho had lasted the longest. One evening, when the sun had gone down, and Keldon and Mylanhad completed their last task for the day, they decided to sneak off and have some fun. It was theirone hundredth day of acting as a servant to Hermadeus, and so they wanted to celebrate. Theywaited until Hermadeus was asleep and then travelled to the Land of Freedom. There, theydanced, sang and carelessly played around as if nothing else mattered. After what seemed likehours, there was a sudden loud noise that broke their fun, and Hermadeus appeared from a cloudof smoke. Keldon and Mylan were so embarrassed and ashamed of themselves for breaking therules and getting caught. Hermadeus was furious that they had disobeyed him and so heperformed the ‘Ritual of Shame.’ He shoved Keldon and Mylan to the ground, where he drew a lineof red paint on each of their cheeks. As he did this, he chanted a curse. He proclaimed that fromthen on, whenever a person was to feel embarrassed, their cheeks shall turn red in colour. And so,this is why humans now blush when they’re embarrassed.
