First time posting.

The promises. Hera promised power; Athena, wealth, and Aphrodite, Ah! She promised the most beautiful woman in the known world.

He must think. Think! Aphrodite whispered in his mind. Whisper, whisper.

He closed his eyes. Without another hesitation, he chose. Wealth was easy to lose, and power wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Helen would be his, and his alone.

A wild peal of laughter escaped his lips. Yes! It was done. Aphrodite smiled in triumph, while Hera look like one of Her sacred cows giving birth.

Cassandra warned him not to go, that it would be bad.

That made me giggle. She was pretty pissed. Good job :)
Thanks. I've been fighting with a babbling putz that has taken up residence in my mind, so this was not the easiest thing to write. I just happened to remember a little chunk that a fellow classmate had in a report about Hera and Her having sacred cows. Good gods, though, that was at least eight years ago. *looks around* I feel old now.

I know the feeling. I've had a few little ideas pop into my head but they're always too long, or I just can't write them well. :/

I like your icon, as well. I share the same feelings. :D
I'm a single mom, that saying is more appropriate than people realize.
