Just so you know, Eros’s arrows haven’t been tampered with yet. Also, please give me constructive criticism! I’ll cherish it and love it and use it to make this story better. I know the chapters are short.
Chapter 1: Love is Everywhere
“…and the good vial will cure anything. It has been used to raise the dead and make them live again. And no, they do not come back as zombies.”
Hecate Point of View.
Last time I checked, there were no signs of romance on Mount Olympus. I’d decided to leave the Underworld and go there, because I was so sick of hearing ‘I’m so glad Valentine’s Day is in winter, so I can spend it with you’. Spring needed to come a lot quicker.
“I love you, Eros,” Psyche said, “Did you know that?” Eros answered her question with a full out kiss on the lips.
“Ugh,” Athena muttered, “Disgusting.”
“Can you guys make out somewhere else?” I snapped, “I didn’t want to see that. It’s gross, Okay?”
Love was everywhere, and everyone had something special for the one they loved.
Maybe I should visit Olympus more often.
Aphrodite skipped over to me. “Hi, Hecate,” She greeted, “Do you want a heart shaped cookie? A makeover? A boyfriend?”
“No,” I said bluntly, wishing I could rip out her hair. Of course the ‘No getting blood on the marble floors’ rule made this wish ungrantable. Stupid marble floors.
Aphrodite skipped up to the other maidens and asked the same three questions. Hestia muttered a ‘No Thank You’, Athena tried to be polite and took a cookie, but refused the other two options, and Artemis, along with several of her nymph friends, glared at her wordlessly.
I decided to go out to the Courtyard -where you could get blood everywhere without a care in the world-, but was stopped by a sharp pain in my arm. Eros.
“Eros, What’s your problem?” I asked, pulling the arrow out my arm.
“Aw, Hecate,” Eros sighed, “You got in the way. I was going to hit Apollo. Again…”
Because I was hit with his stupid arrow, I had no intention of hurting him whatsoever. The good news is, I had no intention of kissing him either.
I handed him his arrow, “Leave before I use you to test out my new potion,” I said, “I have no idea what it does, but the name of it sounds deadly.”
Zombie Elixir. Yeah, really deadly.
