Hello. Miss me? xD
So continuing on from where we left off in the last post, I’ll be explaining about the birth of Ares, the Greek god of War.
After Zeus bore Athena, Hera became really depressed. This was due to the fact that Zeus now possessed both the titles of parenthood, and apparently didn’t need her. Hera wanted to share those titles and was determined to find a solution. She searched the depths of all the oceans, every nook and corner of every forest in the world, but in vain. One day she happened to stumble upon the house of Chloris, a nymph. Chloris, sensing Hera’s distraught, asked her what the matter was. Hera conveyed her dilemma, and noticed that Chloris was hesitantly looking away from Hera, as if she had something to hide. Hera knew at once that Chloris had some kind of a solution for her. She pleaded with Chloris to tell her all she knew. Chloris complied, but on one condition: Hera would have to keep her source anonymous and safe, and Chloris should not experience the wrath of Zeus.
Hera immediately agreed to the simple terms (she’s a goddess, remember?). Chloris told her that there was a flower that was endemic to her garden, which had the potential to make Hera a mother, without the help of a male. On touching the flower’s petals, Hera suddenly convulsed in pain and bore Ares. Right on the spot. At the time, Hera was overwhelmed with happiness for she didn’t know the monster Ares would become. In that moment, she had not a care in the world.
There we go, finally done with it. 😀
