"Now, you just need to think of a name for him" Queen Narella said.
"I have found the perfect name" Gaia said.
"Which is?" King Odell asked.
Gaia smiled and turned to look at the baby in her arms "Endymion… my setting sun"
Divinity: A question of honor - chapter one
Eros walked outside his chambers to talk to the doctor "Something happened am I correct?"
The doctor sighed and nodded "I don't know how to tell you this Your Majesty"
Eros frowned "Tell me whatever it is, without hesitation…"
"Her Majesty's health is delicate, giving birth worn her out very much, she had a hemorrhage we managed to control after the baby was born but…" the doctor trailed.
"Tell me the truth doctor" Eros asked.
"She cannot bare another child Your Majesty, if she gets pregnant once again her life will be at risk, considering she had a delicate pregnancy and a very hard labor" the doctor said in a serious tone.
"I understand…" Eros said.
"I'm so sorry to bring you this news in such a beautiful moment Your Majesty" the doctor said sadly.
"No…it's good to know this, I thank you for your diagnose" Eros said.
"She needs to take several precautions, like rest, do not expose to stressful situations and of course have a very healthy alimentation" the doctor said.
"I will personally make sure she takes her precautions well, I thank you once again doctor" Eros said.
"I'll be coming in a couple of days to check on Her Majesty and the baby" the doctor said.
Eros nodded, giving cue to the doctor to leave; a maid and his assistant were waiting for him at the end of the hall.
"Oh my…I can't stop looking at him…he's gorgeous!" Queen Narella said to Gaia, she was holding her first grandson in her arms and couldn't believe such miracle.
Obelix came close Gaia and sat beside her on the bed "How are you feeling little princess?"
"Very weak…very tired…but happy" she said softly.
"He looks like you" the priest smiled.
"Because of the hair?" she asked weakly.
"And your nose" the priest smiled.
The baby in Queen's Narella's arms was sound asleep, his rosy cheeks looked like two small red apples, his hair was midnight black, darker than his mother's, his skin a very fair tone, his small hands were curled up into tiny fists.
Eros came back into the room and smiled at the sight of his mother holding his child "It's hard to say who resembles the most" said Queen Narella.
Eros smiled and turned to look at his exhausted wife "Let's give Gaia some quiet time to rest…"
"You're right dear, she needs to rest" Queen Narella said.
"I think we all need to rest" said King Odell.
"I know…it's just that…seeing this bundle of joy I forget about anything else…" the queen's voice was soft.
Narella placed baby Endymion on his bassinet next to their bed and covered him with a blue blanket with little brown horses on it.
"We will see you later today for dinner" King Odell said to his son.
"Is there something I could bring you Gaia?" Aurea asked softly.
"No Aurea…I'm fine…I just…need some rest" Gaia responded with a weak voice.
Aurea nodded and left the room with Leonidas.
Eros stood still looking down at the bassinet, he stared at his son's steady breathing, his little peaceful form, he watched his hair and was amazed by how dark it was, he couldn't believe this miracle was a part of him and a part of her. Then he turned to see his wife, she looked different, she looked beautiful.
Taking off his boots and his military jacket he went to lie down on the bed next to Gaia and in a matter of seconds they both fell asleep.
"Your Majesty, there's a letter addressed to King Athan and yourself"
Serenity turned to see Luna in a pale yellow gown "A letter, from whom?"
"The Higher realm in Olympus" Artemis said.
Serenity took the letter from Luna's hand and broke the seal to start reading it, her eyes widened in shock.
"Is something the matter Your Majesty?" Artemis asked concerned.
"We are being calling to an audience with the Higher Gods…" Serenity said, she turned to leave the room quickly.
"Your Majesty?" Luna asked worried.
"If you get to see my husband, tell him I'll be waiting for him on Olympus" Serenity said.
Luna and Artemis nodded.
"What do you think this means?" Luna asked Artemis.
"It must be something very important" Artemis said.
"Ares, there's a letter addressed to us from Olympus" Eris said from her vanity.
Ares turned to look at his wife combing her dark hair "Did you read it?"
"It says we need to be present for an audience with the Higher Gods…" she said.
"Referring to?" Ares asked.
"It doesn't say anything else... but I'm almost positive what it's about" Eris said.
Ares remained silent; Eris continued combing her long hair "For how long is she going to keep stealing everyone's attention?"
"Why does it bother you so much? It has nothing to do with you…" Ares said with discomfort.
Eris placed her comb on her vanity "It's about a Goddess you trained and had feelings for… I'm married to you; of course it has to do with me"
Ares sighed and turned to leave "Don't go if you don't want to then…"
"You will always be a ghost in Ares's mind Gaia…always" Eris said looking at her reflection on the mirror.
Serenity appeared in Olympus, gods and goddesses from all over the universe were directing towards the big white audience room. The same room Gaia was last seen.
"Serenity!" Aphrodite called her from a far.
Serenity turned to see the goddess of love and beauty with a concerned face "Aphrodite"
"Do you know why they called us?" the blonde goddess asked.
Serenity shook her head "No…"
"You have a very close relationship with Chronos don't you?" Aphrodite asked.
"Well, we talked several times recently but he was more close to Gaia" Serenity said.
Ares appeared next with Eris on his side; he stepped aside from her and went to talk to Serenity.
"This must be important, everyone is arriving" Ares said.
"Do you know what this is all about?" Serenity asked Ares.
"No…maybe they just want to inform us something, not out of the ordinary" Ares said.
"We better go inside and take our seats" Aphrodite said.
Inside the majestic round room, Serenity seated on her rightful place as Goddess of the Moon, minutes later Athan seated next to her.
"Artemis informed me of this audience" the lunar king said.
The doors were finally closed and in the center on the room, up high on their respective thrones were the Higher Gods, Zeus, Poseidon, Apollo, Hades and Chronos. As always, Zeus broke the silence.
"This is not an ordinary meeting; it's about something that concerns us all…"
Serenity turned her face to where was supposed to be Gaia's golden chair, Geb and Nut were sitting in their respective chairs next to the empty space. Their expression was one of worry.
"We've been involved in a very uncomfortable position by dealing with a lower being who called herself a Mighty Goddess…" Zeus said.
Serenity's heart pounded very fast and looked at Chronos's stern face. When he was not in an audience like this one he was a very sweet God, but when it was time to become the Higher God he rightfully was he imposed his position.
Serenity could tell Zeus was talking about Gaia, what she didn't like was the way he was referring her to, she was once indeed a Mighty Goddess and she still was, she just didn't live among them anymore.
"Most of you had to battle her and caused disturbing among our Alliance… Metallia was her name and we clearly know who she used to be friends with…"
"She seems to be vanished from Olympus and we know why…" Zeus turned to look at Geb and Nut with a serious look.
Nut held her husband's hand with all her might.
"It seems someone made justice by her own hand, without consulting us first" Zeus said.
"Mighty God Zeus… what is this disturbance we all felt?" Athena asked from her seat.
"A strong energy we know well, an energy that only can come from an immortal being" Poseidon said.
"We are well aware of your daughter's strength Geb and we know it's her…" Poseidon said looking at the Earth's former protector.
"I don't understand…" Geb said.
"She took the sacred crystal you used to protect and you never informed us…" Zeus said his voice stern and cold.
"Were you trying to fool us?" Poseidon asked.
The whispering couldn't wait any longer, the tension in the room became evident; Ares was silent and paid close attention to the matter and so Serenity.
"Your daughter not only took the sacred stone from you, but she used it on a mortal's realm. But that's not the important matter of this meeting" Zeus said.
"But you stripped the Goddess off her title and took away her immortality with it her powers…" Goddess Hestia said.
"Yes, we did. And she lives a mortal life now. But it is something important what happened and needs to be attended" Poseidon said.
"What is that..?" Rhea asked with a dead glare.
"Gaia gave birth to a mortal child" Zeus said.
"What?" everyone started asking in surprise, Serenity turned to look at Ares then to Chronos who still held a stern look.
"But that is impossible…" Apollo said, turning to see Chronos.
"That child is not to be near any of us…a descendant from traitors must be punished if he dares to come to us" Hades said.
"We will not allow any link from the mortal's realm to this one! We must stay away from any contact with them, earthlings are not to be trusted" Poseidon said.
"No…" Serenity said.
Chronos turned to look at the Moon Goddess and shook his head no.
"The son of Gaia is not supposed to exist" Zeus said.
"We cannot leave Earth out of our Alliance…why? That child doesn't have any fault of what their ancestors did! Gaia didn't do anything wrong!" Serenity said.
"Serenity…stop it!" Athan hushed.
"How dare you to speak to us in that tone? To question our judgement?" Poseidon said.
"That baby is innocent…" Serenity said.
"That baby comes from a family who betrayed us, who broke our laws" Poseidon said.
"We must take care of this matter…" Hades said to Zeus.
Chronos turned to look at Hades "What are you saying Hades?"
"We must destroy that child…is the only way to keep at peace this realm. I'll take the child's soul to the underworld and we could have everything under control" Hades said.
"Time will create a distortion…we can't act that way" Chronos said.
"That child has royal blood…that child is indeed a miracle…but we cannot expose ourselves" Zeus said.
"Zeus, we cannot take his life with us… we are not Higher Gods to act like the beings that have been put under a seal" Chronos said.
Athan pulled Serenity back to her seat, she turned to look at him with a worried look "They can't do that…"
"Serenity, we can't be against them…we just formed an alliance" Athan said.
"Chronos, why are you defending this child so much? She is nothing yours! You saved her from her brother…but we don't know if her child has the same blood as he…" Zeus said.
"We cannot change destiny Zeus…or have you forgotten your past?" Chronos asked.
Zeus sighed and stood up.
"It is now completely forbidden to have any contact with Earth, it will cease to be in our realm and protection alliance. Any of you who dare to go there will have to pay for severe consequences. This decision is final" Zeus said.
Serenity couldn't hold the things they were all saying about her friend and her child.
The Higher Gods stood up and disappeared, giving cue to everyone to leave, the meeting was over.
Geb and Nut stayed in their seats, Serenity walked towards them "King Geb, Queen Nut…" she said softly.
"This can't be happening…" Nut sobbed.
"Nut, we need to go home…" Geb said, helping his wife they both vanished from the room leaving light blue sparks were they were sitting.
Serenity turned to see her husband waiting for her and started to cry, walking out of the room she met Aphrodite.
"Serenity…" Aphrodite said softly.
Athan came to stand next to his wife "Let's go home…"
Serenity turned to look at Athan with a stern look "Home is a place you call when you feel at peace and happy and neither of those things happens when I'm around you…"
Athan widened his eyes "What are you saying?"
"What you heard…" Serenity said.
"Please, leave me alone…" Serenity vanished and left Olympus.
"I'm so sorry Serenity…" Athan said almost like a whisper.
