Disclaimer:I do not own Goddessgirl series.
I waved at Athena and Aphrodite, my two best friends. I watched them wistfully as they descended onto Mount Olympus. Between my 3 bffs, Athena Aphrodite and Artemis, I was the only one who lived at home. I wish Mom wouldn't be so…so…paranoid! I looked at the beautiful sight and saw a stream so I went there to wash off my makeup. Doesn't Aphrodite know that inner beauty comes from the inside? But then I chided myself for thinking like that. After all, she still is my bff!
I sat on my black stallion as I watched a beautiful red headed goddessgirl washed off her makeup in the stream near my cemetry. When she finished, she still looked beautiful. I wonder if I could ever have a chance with her. Probably not! Then she flew up into the sky but some off her things fell down into my cemetery. I quickly rode my horse there to help her with her stuff but she had already picked it up and she was not really beautiful when you got closer…she was breathe taking!
I saw her pick up some lilies and at once they became beautiful again filled with coulor life. Just like her.
I saw some lilies scattered to the ground and picked them once, the wilting flower bloomed and the stalk straightened and became greener. I whispered, 'It's so beautiful.'
'So are you.' A voice complimented me. I spun around and saw a cute godboy on a black stallion. I blushed at what he said.
'Hey,you're Persephone,right? I've seen you around school.' he said.I was surprised he knew my name. He looked older than me, maybe 14. I recalled seeing him skulking in the hallways. Some bullies had teased had been the leader. I asked,'What's your name?' He raised an eyebrow, as if he was surprised-and a little insulted that I didn't know.
'I mean…sorry…um…'I tried to apologize. He chuckled and replied to my question, 'I'm Hades.' I stared with my mouth open and then started to stutter what I thought of him.'B-b-b-b-b-but you're too…too…'
'B-b-b-b-but you're too…too…' I heard her say. I questioned, 'Too what?'
'Too beautiful.' I heard her answer softly.I blushed a deep red. There was an awkward moment. 5 seconds…10 seconds…20 seconds…I noticed she was staring at me. I decided to break the silence. I questioned her,'Doesn't it creep you out to be here?' She tossed her gorgeous red hair which flowed down her back to her waist.
She replied, 'Not really. I find it peaceful here.' I was pleased by her was different from other girls, goddess or mortal. I agreed with her, 'Yes, it is. When I need a break from stuff, I come here.' Persephone replied, 'I can relate. It's good to be away from people for a while and think about stuff.'I nodded my head then I mumbled.'You really are special,Persephone.' I realised I was falling in…in…love.
I started to say thank you but was cut off by a familiar voice.
'Peserphone! What are you doing? Do you know how late it is,young lady? 'It was my mom! Why, why, why? Why must Mom always do this to me? I saw Hades stiffen as Demeter,you know,my mother swooped down and landed her got out and told Hades, 'Stay away from my daughter!' Hades looked upset but then his face hardened and he turned away to mount his face was well…a poker face. He mumbled, 'See you at school,Peserphone.' He then rode away.
'Mom!'I grumbled. She said, 'If you don't like me hunting you down,you should tell me where you are and what you're doing.'I started to think about Hades,about his striking eyes,his deep laugh and how he understood me. I was falling in love…
That night in my bedroom, I thought about Hades. How I couldn't have him. I sang a song.
'When the rain
Is blowing in your face
And the whole world
Is on your case
I could offer you
A warm embrace
To make you feel my love
When the evening shadows
And the stars appear
'Persephone! You have school tomorrow! Go to sleep!'
I reluctantly obeyed my mom and had some dreams about cliche...
