Condition: Relatives, go figure
You spot her sitting in front of a mirror having her hair done. As you walk up, you are surprised by her response.
"Hello, Bedros. Anna, give us a minute, please." The hairdresser puts her things down and goes away.
Aphrodite turns to you and says point blank, "I'm not going back."
He was a little suprised though not completely. He had suspected she wasnt among the dead on Olympus when he hadnt smelled her scent which was a pretty exotic one and one you didnt mistake. That meant Father had made another mistake. He had under estimated her and her powers. One would always be wise to keep in mind the power of love, and the woman sitting in front of him was the very epitome of it in all its forms, lust, passion, love in its purest form."You say that like that is the only choice in the matter Aunty."
he responded evenly "Dont misunderstand me...
" he said cooly at the look on her face "You've been his lover, and you damned well know what hes capable of, especially with your daughter whispering her posion in his ears."
he finished with the low earthen rumble."Eris wants nothing more then war and strife for its own sake, and with nothing and no one to balance out Ares you Know! That he will do exacty that.""You think you can just hide here on earth while he wages a war of the gods on these people?"
he gestured to the people working all around them at the shoot. "What will be left to love when hes done huh? What love will there be in the world?""No Aunty the way I see it you have 2 choices..."
he paused a moment to let what he was saying sink in he also knew he was taking a risk saying what he was saying and about to say, But his Mom always said say what you mean and mean what you say or else all that comes out is Bullcrap. "You can stay here and be a petulant child while the world is drowned in war and bloodshed and stryfe and hatred, Where the only thing left to love will be the ashes of the world, where mankind and the love they still have for you and what you repsent is burned to the ground or lost to the love of war.O
"Or you can come with me, we can find your daughter and the two of you can go to Olympus where you can balance Ares, and her sister."
"War and Stryfe balanced by Love and Peace. You know I am right and you know what you need to do Aunty."
Finally he finished. He never raised his voice througout the entire statement not once. His voice remained low and even. He remembered what Seven had told him once. That sometimes the loudest words are the ones said in the quietest voice because they are the ones people strain to hear.
He stood there and let her think about it because he knew what the decision would mean for her.
