When Nature Calls

Aphrodite and Helene were wiped out. The evening at Mont Olymopos Club was a success, both on the floor, dancing their tails off, and in the darkened alcoves doing…things.

Many times.

Upstairs in the restaurant, they had just finished an exquisite meal of Pan Seared Scallops with pureed turnips and shitake mushrooms, followed by warm Gaia Apple Pie topped with Dove ice cream. Wine flowed throughout.

Later, checking themselves out in the ladies room mirror, Helene asked: “Where’s next?”

“A descendant’s Science Fair project,” Aphrodite answered, fixing her makeup.

“Shells?”

“Shells, again. Sigh. But, afterward: RUM!”

“Party!”

They both smiled.

  1. I love that you brought these goddesses to a human level! They sound like my kind of gals (if I were still twenty.) I guess when you’re a goddess you can play as much as you like. Well done.,

    • I’m surprised, Roy. This all revolved around Aphrodite’s mythology: came out of the sea on a shell, embodied sex & sexuality, Helene was a sycophant, doves were one of her associations, Gaia for the hell of it…basically, just hedonistic goddesses, with a touch of “maternal” feelings and duty to go see a great great great et al grandchild’s Science Fair project.
