Either way unlike popular belief there was plenty of evidence that they had nothing other than a mere friendship (despite Orion wanting more but he may or may not have acted on it and tried to rape her).
In the unlikely case of Artemis being in love with Orion, it would have likely ended with Apollo wanting to make sure Artemis kept her vow and he either sent Scorpio to kill him or tricked Artemis into shooting Orion.
A poem of Callimachus to the goddess "who amuses herself on mountains with archery" imagines some charming vignettes: according to Callimachus, Artemis, at three years old, while sitting on the knee of her father, Zeus, asked him to grant her six wishes: to remain always a virgin; to have many names to set her apart from her brother Apollo; to be the Phaesporia or Light Bringer; to have a bow and arrow and a knee-length tunic so that she could hunt; to have sixty "daughters of Okeanos", all nine years of age, to be her choir; and for twenty Amnisides Nymphs as handmaidens to watch her dogs and bow while she rested.
She wished for no city dedicated to her, but to rule the mountains, and for the ability to help women in the pains of childbirth.
Orion was the self-proclaimed best hunter in another version and Hera sent Scorpio to kill him, in this version Zeus put him in the stars as a constellation as an apology to Orion for what his wife did.
It was most likely in most case that Zeus was the one who put him in the sky and only the ones where Artemis was in love with him would Artemis have put her in the sky.
She then told Aphrodite that love was worthless since you would most likely have a broken heart in the end. Hera (who was also the goddess of childbirth), made sure that the birth would not come easily for Artemis. The myths also differ as to whether Artemis was born first, or Apollo.
Most stories depict Artemis as born first, becoming her mother's mid-wife upon the birth of her brother Apollo.
All of her companions remained virgins, and Artemis closely guarded her own chastity.
It is believed that a precursor of Artemis was worshiped in Minoan Crete as the goddess of mountains and hunting, Britomartis.
While the connection with Anatolian names has been suggested, the earliest attested forms of the name Artemis are the Mycenaean Greek a-te-mi-to and a-ti-mi-te, written in Linear B at Pylos. Various conflicting accounts are given in Classical Greek mythology of the birth of Artemis and her twin brother, Apollo.
Artemis caused no pain to Leto, earning her the title of goddess of childbirth.
After she was born she helped Leto give birth to Apollo her twin brother.
