Sweet Saturday Sample- Child of War-A God is Born

After Alena fed Raven and tucked him in for an early afternoon nap, she wanted to go down to the Mortal World and get food for him, but Ares wouldn’t let her. They started to argue about it as they walked down the hall but Ares suddenly stopped, put his hands on his hips, pointed his nose and took in a deep sniff. “Something wrong?” Alena asked, already knowing what was on the horizon.

“They had sex! In my house!”

Hanging her head and breathing a deep sigh, she cupped her hands around his upper arm. “Oh that nose of yours,” she said as she shook her head.

“You knew! How long has this been going on?”

There was no point in lying now that the cat was out of the bag. “Eros and Onya have been seeing each other for a few months.”
Ares nostrils flared as the thick muscles in his neck tightened. “A few…”

“Now, just stop. They wanted to tell you but, well, look how you’re acting already.” Laying her head on his arm, she patted it with her hand and led him away from the other end of the hall and to the staircase. “They’re adults, Ares, and they shouldn’t have to sneak around like this, you know?”

“They shouldn’t be sneaking around at all; she’s my woman.”

“True, technically true, but she is a woman and you’re not, well…you’re not.”

“So what? She’s still my woman, she’s in my charge and I’m responsible for her,” he asserted as they stood at the top of the long staircase. “At the very least, Eros should have been man enough to come to me and ask me.”

“You know he’s not very good at confrontation.”

“Yes, I know.” Ares stroked the beard on his chin, thinking that if Eros were any good at confrontation Zeus would install him as the heir and Trinity would never exist. “Still, I’m insulted.” He was the man of this house and as such felt he had the right to be consulted on matters, all matters, even those such as this.

“You sound more like her Father than her ex-lover or…employer.” Alena turned to look up at her Husband and see the wrinkles on his brow. “Look, if nothing else, since Eros has Onya you don’t have to worry about him having eyes for me, right?”

Well, that was an undeniable plus to the situation. “Fine, but there will be rules for this dating thing, I will have a talk with both of them.”

“Ares,” Alena tilted her head and smiled, “really?”

“Her first duty is to this family and this house, not to Eros…until or unless he marries her.”

“Whatever you say, just don’t be an ass about it, all right?”
