Vera’s POV Who would have thought that William and Venus will go along very well? I know that Venus is not William’s ideal girl. Not even his type. She’s an independent kind of woman and William is like a nurturing guy who wanted to take care of someone. And Venus is not someone you need to care about. I just witness something this morning, and I’m beyond amused. As I walk to the office, I saw Vera talking with a guy next to the pantry, and I know it’s not William. He’s Andrew, the office's hottest bachelor. He’s from the accounting department and a flirt. But to compare it, Willia
Aphrodite’s POVFor some reason, I feel kind of irritated while watching this movie. I know humans love to imagine things, but this is far from what is real.I’m watching Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, and wow I don’t remember Uncle Poseidon being this handsome just like how they portray it in the movie.William insists that I should check movies related to us gods.“I don’t even have long exposure in the movie. I can’t see how they portray me,”Is the artist beautiful? Ugh!“Haha, relax it focused on Percy’s life that’s why.”“I hate this kind of movie.” He just laughs at my comment.It’s been weeks after I got punished. And I haven’t heard any news from my father.I’m just worried about how to finish my job here. I’m helping him regarding Vera. The girl is very extra
Aphrodite’s POVHaving my power decreased affects my job as a goddess. I have to pull an all-nighter just to finish some of my work.Going on this mundane job is an effort I need to do too. Why am I doing this?The office is a bit noisy this morning. Few of the female employees are talking loudly like news broke the whole country or something.Actually, I really hated noise. Back in Mt. Olympus, I even ask them to build my temple far away from my sisters, because I know that they will pester me every day. I just don’t know why my sisters have a lot of free time to do that.William goes to the office a little bit early today, and I just can’t wake up that early.I got my coffee right now and I guess mortal’s coffee can wake the hell out of you.As I reach for my office table, I heard something from the two women who just came from the pantry.“Did you see it?&rdquo
Vera’s POVI don’t know what I’m doing. I’m messing up everything.I know what I did. I know I’m supposed to leave William alone and let him be happy with his new girlfriend.I did my decision long ago. And it’s irreversible.Breaking up with him means breaking him too as a person. Not only that but also rejects his proposal of marriage.After that night, I thought I’m finally free to do anything that I want.How to explain this, William is very kind, actually, he’s too much kind that I wanted to break free from him. I don’t know what came to me.I suddenly lost my interest in him that time.Then I got Marco now. Actually, he’s not my ideal man. I don’t even like him before. But suddenly we started to hang out and it’s just happened.I suddenly forgot about William.He’s always overworked, to the point that
William’s POV I just wanted a quiet place to rest my mind because I’m so stressed with so many things in mind, but Jerry’s been an annoying fellow right this moment. “Are you happy now? Being surrounded by pretty girls, I feel so jealous Will.” If only I can roll my eyes right now. He’s overreacting. If only Jerry knew the truth. “How can you even get a girlfriend like Ms. Venus? She’s the epitome of true beauty. But Ms. Vera is pretty too. She got her own charms I think.” Sigh. Jerry that woman is the goddess of love; of course, she’s the symbol of beauty. “But you know I still don’t understand why Ms. Vera is still trying to make a move on you, after your break up. Is she unsure of her decision before? But what about the “fiancée” thing? Is that an act to make you jealous?” I know he’s trying to find a reason behind Vera’s actions. Because same here, I don't understand either. It doesn’t
William’s POV I don’t know that this would be embarrassing, standing between Aphrodite and Vera and the whole office knew in an instant that there is something going on. Even Jerry won’t leave me behind on this. “Now, listen you two, you will be working under my supervision. I don’t know what the manager thinks to even assign me to train you both.” I sigh. “You don’t have to, I got all that I need to do.” And that’s the goddess for you. I know she’s familiar with office work. So does it mean I only have to look for Vera? Vera on the other hand is a bit vexed. I can clearly see it on her face. But what does she expect anyway? “T-then, can you teach me some of the things around, Will?” Actually, that was unexpected, for Vera to call me on my nickname. I somehow feel a bit annoyed because my heart skips a beat. “You don’t need to do that, dear. I can teach Vera everything she needs t
Aphrodite’s POV I am all serious about working in the same office as William. Not for anything but for Vera to leave him behind. But he seems not fine with this setup. “Is that even a good idea? You, working in the office with humans? I just remember how you called us stupid and etc.” I have to admit I really think of them as stupid beings. So many times I witness some gruesome decision one human can make. Well, that’s a different story. “Hmm, can’t say it’s good. But you want to remove Vera on your track right? It’s the only way I guess. For me to be an employee like her and be with you.” I just have to guard William so that he can forget about her. “Actually, I have an idea, and I’m thinking about it for a while,” He was so hesitant based on his approach just now. What is he thinking? “I don’t know if this is good, but I wanted to take my revenge.” Revenge?
William’s POV The sudden shake caught my attention as I opened the door after going out to buy our dinner. The house is fine thank goodness if it's a small earthquake. I have to ask Aphrodite and Nona to get out of the apartment for safety in case there are aftershocks. But as I walked inside the house, I knew it’s not an earthquake that caused the sudden shaking. I heard Aphrodite is talking to someone calmly but a bit annoyed. Who could that be? Should I even ask who is it? But then I realized that it’s my home and I have all the right to ask who it is. I didn’t hesitate now that I stand in front of the door. I knock and opened it. “I bought us dinner,
