I CHÓRA TOU VULCAN
"I welcome you all to this call of importance and of course, need."
Athena started, standing before the heap of villagers. The numbers of villagers had drastically increased. You could call that the aftermath of the ought-to-be but was-not war.
It had been said that several other people from different remote settings who had gone into hide when the king of the land was killed and the invaders swooped in returned. People who wanted a ruler who could save them and be there for them. And none of them seemed to find a better ruler other than the glorious Athena.
"I should start by taking into account your loyalty and how efficient you all have been since these past few days. Even majority of you had gone to the extent of bringing in many of your families and friends because you think it right that I rule you. Because you place your trust in me even in the face of opposition."
She paused again. The sil
In the woods. ~A group~ "Do you think she speaks the truth?" "What does it matter, whether or not twas the truth. We all saw it with our own eyes." "What if she really made us see what we wanted to see? What if it's all her plan all along. You can't be so foolproof to the plans of a witch." The third man chuckled and played the sole of his old cum torn sandal through the dirt surrounding him. "Are we still talking about her being a witch? What do you even know about the art of witchery? Did you really think that witches do not have their own limitations? You think all they wish to do is at their disposal? If so, why then do we have demons, familiar spirits, magical creatures and the gods? You're an old man, why do you speak as those youth whose intelligence had been smothered by booze?" The man who was being addressed sprung to his feet, "What did you just say? Do you want to die?" The
In a Cave.~The Princess and Aynea~"What should be become of us now?""You meant what will?"Aynea corrected, looking past the seemingly worried princess to the cold wall with stripes of brown and green scattered all over it. Many believed that the rock had lived several years before the existence of men. The Israelites believed that Nine hundred and Seventy-four generations existed before ours. And such stories did take the fancies of the Dryad."I could tell you several stories you've never heard about and we could make a travel away from this troubled land. Don't you think?"Aynea had added, now measuring the degree of mirth confounded by confusing splattered across the princess' face."You shouldn't had been that loyal to Athena despite the fact that she is authentic. We could had taken over the kindgom and send her running.""And then what?"Aynea tackled."Of course tak
I CHÓRA TOU VULCAN~The King and Queen~"Are you sure that was Poseidon? I do not mean to pervert your judgement or ridicule your words of course. But I'm just worried that setting the people on a verge for what we're not really sure about could be detrimental to both us and them."Vulcan took a break, taking a peek at his queen, his love, his woman, Athena. They were standing before the huge gate of the city which had recently been changed. The ramparts were under construction, and the borders of the village were the large forest to the West, rows of mountains to the East, the large lake to the North, and the desert of bones to the South.You could say that the settlement was a plague or Completion of existence in itself. But many of the people living in the land had no faintest idea of the desert of bones and the large lake.Everyone knew about the forest but only few knew about the rows of mountains. The f
In the woods.~Prium and Miargos~"Don't you think this is Madness?"Miargos' pace behind her gave her a sense of freedom, yet the stalker would not stop getting on her nerves. She spun around at him and yelled,"You know what madness is? Madness is you following me around. Following me about like a leech, whose anterior sucker connects to its host, giving it a lofty benefit to be stuck on the skin for as long as it wants."The fact that she halted was like a blessing to him. He had learnt to see beyond her bickers and indifference. He had learnt from his father that one's first love is like a gun put to your temple, whose trigger had been bothered. Just a movement of the finger and off the bullet goes, eating through the skin, crunching bones. Every obstacles in its way tantamount to bygone.He had been able to make just an iota of sense from that Maxim. And most times, he had knuckled under the fact that his
In the woods.~Prium and Miargos/ Vulcan and Athena~"Ahhhh!"Her throat almost bursted open by the pitch of her shriek. Without thinking, Miargos hurried to her and held her from behind, wrapping his arms around her, his arms brushing the base of her titties as he pulled her back."Stay behind me."He finally let go of her and looked away immediately at the Lion. He seemed like the intermediary between Prium and the Lion. Or say, the barrier.He stood in the way of the lion, few inches away. His eyes bulging at his socket. The young lion growling and moving in thoughtful sequence."Do you want to get yourself killed?"She called at him but he didn't respond though a silly smile escaped his lips. Who smiles at the face of death? Probably her concern about him loosened a nut in his brain.As the lion closed in the space between the both of them, Miargos began to move in a
The Cave.~Poseidon/Vulcan and Athena~"Is that how vulnerable you are? That you can't leave the mortals out of the show?!"Athena's intonation fell to rise. Her eyes running through the stern face of the young sorcerer who had his back to them. Vulcan was standing beside her.They had just entered into the cave and instead of exchanging pleasantries, Athena had shot those words at the fellow. You could say, that was her own way of saying a 'hi'."You must have a lot of guts to bring him with you."The sorcerer turned to face them. His eyes were red and there was a mask of laser running through his face. Vulcan tripped and freaked out. But then, the mask seeped into the sorcerer's face; his face sucked it in."He's my love. A mortal who has everything your immortal carcass can never reach."She shot back and he chuckled."Do you mean he has this!"He swiped his hand acro
In the wood~Prium and Miargos~"What's that up ahead?"Miargos halted suddenly. He was the one leading the way. Prium was just few steps behind him. She had argued that he kept his distance beyond or behind her else she'd stop him from going with her.She had a torn part of a cloth wrapped around some object which was clutched to her breast.She caught up with him,"Don't tell me that this is your own trick of walking side by side with me."He glared at her,"Funny."That expression seemed to move her."You seem to had grown wings now, eh?""Look ahead."He ignored, tossing his head to the front. She shook her head in disbelief,"Go to hell."She walked away from him towards the ridge up ahead of them. He grunted,"There's no winning with her.""Wait up."He hurried to catch up with her. But as he did, he stumbled on a long th
After few hours.~Prium and Miargos~"I couldn't believe that we are still alive."Prium let out finally, walking side by side with Miargos. She looked at the ridge bordering the rift few metres behind them. She looked back at the front."If you've actually trusted me on so many things, things wouldn't had gotten this worst. But of course you have your reason for whatever you do and I wouldn't ridicule that."He maintained, shooting her just a quick glance."Are you trying to be sweet and mushy now? Sucks."She growled and he chuckled. '"But seriously, what was that thing. For a moment, it seemed as though I was in some myth told by the sages and poets.""You don't think all the creatures discussed by writers are real?""I didn't. But after seeing that creepy creature, there's actually nothing to disbelief or doubt."There was a brief silence,"But your dad used
