“Hera raised her Godly eyes to Zeus as the latter gazed upon the selcouth female in swaddling as the babe laid her head against her mother’s bosom. The Goddess unleashed her heavenly fury toward the master of the Pantheon in the manner of words most ineloquent. “Not content with your seed creating the half-celestial male, Hercules, you also have to spread your seed into another and spawn a half-celestial female by the name of Cora”

Sitting under the tree with the blossoms falling around her, Cora studied the parchment that her mother, Alyssa, bade her read. Looking up at her mother in stunned silence, the young woman opened her mouth to speak several times before closing it sharply with a “clop” of her jaws snapping together. “Are you telling me,” she finally managed to blurt out. “That my father is Zeus, and that Hercules is my half brother?”

Alyssa dropped down beside her daughter and sighed in resignation. “Unfortunately so, sweet one. He can be extremely persuasive. I had no idea it was Zeus. He appeared in the form of a man I loved.”

Cora smiled without humour. “Does that mean I have some sort of Godly mega ability then?”


This may turn into a series. I have no idea yet

  1. Whoaaaah, man! Definite series material. Poor Cora! Poor Alyssa.
    This prompt site looks interesting — I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing it with us.
    GREAT writing — I loved the idea of using the parchment to break the news to Cora.
