            I was in a living nightmare. I had attacked Kara. I had fled the city. I had disappeared from my friends. And none of it was my fault.copyright protection4PENANALB5yIgtlSN

            There had been a car waiting for me. I don’t know why or where it was going, but I go in it and it drove me away.copyright protection4PENANA91auPvIAh5

            “What is happening?”copyright protection4PENANAVpCYgreQSc

            “Hush now, everything’s going to be a-ok.” The voice reassured me. “I’m in control now.”copyright protection4PENANAvEOAcwRFSJ

            “Who are you?”copyright protection4PENANAt2LDwA9fbr

            “Little bitty love goddess, all alone. Little bitty love goddess, has no home…” The song was coming out of my mouth now. My voice spoke the words softly, just barely a whisper creeping away from my teeth. It sent chills down my spine. I was screaming inside my own head. I wasn’t me anymore.copyright protection4PENANAl6QX57pjXh

            The car stopped. I had no idea how long it had been driving. The door opened and a man helped me out. “Right this way sir.” He said.copyright protection4PENANAwsVk38RVNK

            Sir?copyright protection4PENANAFhMqUj14zd

            “Hmm, little bitty love goddess…welcome to my home.” My body calmly walked up the steps to the front porch and entered the building. It reminded me of fancy hotel, the kind my parents would stay at.copyright protection4PENANAvUjlSoshIp

            “Without you.”copyright protection4PENANAzeSuzWCrRq

            There was no one else in the lobby, and the man who had opened the car door had not come inside with me.copyright protection4PENANAbwHYWCiYGS

            “This way my Lady.” My mouth spoke. I walked to the elevator and pressed the button. A soft ding announced the opening of the doors. I walked inside and pressed the only button on the panel. It was labeled Z’s. a familiar tune played in the elevator.copyright protection4PENANAbbMvxFUZXC

            “I love this song. Little bitty love goddess…uhh so catchy.” The voice told me. “You’d be surprised to learn how quickly I came up with the words. Practically wrote itself.”copyright protection4PENANApwRi1qeER5

            “What am I doing here?” I asked.copyright protection4PENANA43CM2yokx4

            “We’ve been spending so much time together…I just thought you would want to actually meet me.”copyright protection4PENANAcIgZeNF8NC

            The elevator doors opened and my legs carried me out. I was in a single room, no doors no furniture. The only thing was a bed at the far end of the area. And lying in it was a man.copyright protection4PENANAKd9Cwa2KOU

            “Hello Albany. It is nice to finally see you.” I walked to the side of the bed and saw that the man, who was incredibly wrinkled and old, was fast asleep.copyright protection4PENANAQTXsFZ13ky

            “Who are you?” I asked.copyright protection4PENANA8xhowvccE0

            “I am a god, much like you. However I’ve been one for much longer.”copyright protection4PENANAOpeX1K83uX

            “How are you controlling my body?” I asked. “Why can I not move?”copyright protection4PENANAXkQVNvVOzf

            “My godly talents have their uses.” Was the answer. “Tell me, are your godly talents useful?”copyright protection4PENANAmHME6jajvO

            “What…what do you mean?” I asked.copyright protection4PENANAjkdxieiriM

            “I have been in your head for long enough to know that you feel love. You feel all kinds of love, do you not?”copyright protection4PENANAog7ebUK7Ij

            I could sense what this man was feeling. It was not love. He had already taken away complete control of my body from me, would he take even more?copyright protection4PENANAm519J8tTrZ

            “You know what I wish of you now love goddess?”copyright protection4PENANAILjVjC9B3s

            “You’re a monster.” I shouted. My body and face remained calm, only my voice remained mine. “My friends will be looking for me. They will find me, and then we will kill you.”copyright protection4PENANAorIvFUqq19

            “I have friends too.” He said. “Would I abduct an Olympian if I did not think I would live to…enjoy it?”copyright protection4PENANAJneLxYT0Sl

            “Why are you doing this to me!”copyright protection4PENANAZA6jwpVG1Y

            “I believe you are no stranger to desire. Even before you became love, men desired you, yes? What man does not…dream…about laying with the goddess of love? Dreams, I think you have learned, can be very dangerous. So for eons I neglected my dream, I attended to other people’s dreams and fantasies instead. But you could imagine my pure excitement, when an old and powerful friend came to me and asked me to fulfill my dream. I couldn’t contain myself, so I started right away.”copyright protection4PENANA8ppQU5KlvL

            “Someone asked you to do this?” the feelings inside this…man’s…heart were growing stronger, and that meant I could sense them with more clarity. I began to cry. “Don’t do this.”copyright protection4PENANAuf9J1GIVHB

            “I am Morpheus, god of dreams.” The voice told me. “Now come, little bitty love goddess, won’t you have a sweet dream with me?” My body willingly obeyed. That was the worst part. He took control. And I was unable to do anything except relive that hell over and over in my dreams. I wanted to die. I let it happen. I let him do that to me. And now, love will never be the same.copyright protection4PENANAgGbm0HMVnN

            I cried for hours afterwards. He seemed to like it, he relinquished some control, allowing me to writhe in anguish across the bed. I felt dirty, I felt used, I felt weak. I didn’t feel like a goddess, I didn’t even feel human. What he had done to me…people didn’t do that to other people. Monsters do what he did. Horrible hideous beasts that deserve the most severe punishments in Tartarus. Life had been hell for me since he invaded my mind. But that had been nothing to when he invaded my body. That I could never erase, that I could never forget. He burdened me with a curse. A curse that tainted who I was, who Aphrodite was. That was not love. That was an affront to love. He conquered more than just me. He conquered everything I stood for and everything that made me divine. He washed over everything, and I knew I would never be the same again. I was his victim, but then why did I feel so guilty.copyright protection4PENANATwcjm7p7tU

            MORPHEUS!copyright protection4PENANATXa2HbJq6q

            The man lying next to me started shaking violently. His mouth opened in a silent scream. I watched in horror as every vein in his body bulged outwards, color rose to his skin and his once pale wrinkled skin was now flushed and sweating.copyright protection4PENANA1n7cJ7Uw2i

            Defiler of Love, this transgression cannot be ignored. Die now and know your pain will never end.copyright protection4PENANAjWOwgbEFi7

            Morpheus started seizing uncontrollable, an arm whipped wildly at me, knocking me out of bed and onto the ground. I started screaming, I was horrified. I had no idea what was going on. Blood slowly bubbled from his mouth and the seizing picked up in violence.copyright protection4PENANAAb5KeNWXd3

            A dagger skidded to a stop at my feet. There was a dove carved into the blade. I picked it up and jumped back onto the bed. Now onto a bucking and kicking Morpheus, I knelt on his chest to try and hold him in place. I put my left hand on his chin and pushed, tilting his head back and exposing his neck. Blood was dribbling down from his mouth and staining his neck.copyright protection4PENANAneqvraClGF

            I liked the sight of blood on his neck. Gripping the knife in my hand tighter I gingerly rested in upon his Adam’s apple. Slowly, and forcing myself to watch every moment, I slid the knife across his throat. Blood sprayed onto my face. Morpheus’ movements died down, the more stained his sheets grew the paler his skin became.copyright protection4PENANAE0CsxSDbyW

            Retreating from the spreading red mess I backed into the corner of the room and cradled my knees. His death moans slowly murmured into silence. And then, he was gone.copyright protection4PENANAi88oSmbPjo

            Pass from this world knowing what you did.copyright protection4PENANATHDjc4uPqb

            “Albany.” I looked up in horror, but Morpheus was dead. I looked around I could not see who spoke. “Albany, you’re ok.”copyright protection4PENANAv4b8xJ1bUz

            “LEAVE ME ALONE!” I screamed. I held the knife out in front of me, hoping to ward off this new voice.copyright protection4PENANA7dHfBACNqV

            “I have never, nor will I ever abandon you.” The voice said softly.copyright protection4PENANAbjDODQT8Gj

            “Who are you?” I demanded.copyright protection4PENANAjbnvkVel69

            “I am with you.” I realized this voice was in my head. “I have been with you since you removed your blindfold in the throne room. I have watched you become a goddess, and know that I am proud of knowing you carry my legacy.”copyright protection4PENANAVdmCtYd6LE

            I let the knife drop to the floor. “Did you…did you kill him?” I asked.copyright protection4PENANA1WXFLBvEJc

            “We killed him Albany.” The voice told me. “Together we avenged us. We did no worse evil to him than he committed against us.”copyright protection4PENANAY3omyIhN4n

            “We killed him?” I asked.copyright protection4PENANAWZBjC5hQb2

            “He killed love.” The voice shouted. “He needed to die.”copyright protection4PENANAudZsSL3opN

            “Are you going to kill me?”copyright protection4PENANAAoQYKoH1cL

            The voice sounded surprised. “Do you want me too?” I looked at the knife, bloodied, with the dove staring at me. I imagined my blood mixing with his.copyright protection4PENANAp8K0rn6Jdh

            “No.” I answered. Tears formed in my eyes and overflowed onto my cheeks.copyright protection4PENANALHvL9owdMW

            “I will never hurt you Albany.” The voice reassured me. “Because I love you.” I winced at that word. He had used it…during…and I never wanted to be ‘loved’ again.copyright protection4PENANA0nkQm5f36r

            The voice knew this. “My love for you is pure. Becomes it comes from within you.”copyright protection4PENANAPwAAx2XDMa

            “Who are you?” I forced out.copyright protection4PENANAVxRqj1OPeB

            “I am you.” The voice told me. “Or rather, the version of you that is Aphrodite.”copyright protection4PENANAMeZ64lbkpi

            I was shocked. Sitting there naked and bloody. “Aphrodite?”copyright protection4PENANAMePnOmpMZb

            “Yes Albany?”copyright protection4PENANAWUJNl3O9S3

            “But I’m Aphrodite.” I told the voice. “You can’t be her.”copyright protection4PENANALEhKLm5XGv

            “No, you are Aphrodite AND Albany. And each of us represents one half of that.” The voice explained. “I am Aphrodite, and you are Albany. Together we are Aphrodite AND Albany. We are two that equals one. Together we can protect love. Together we can save all those like us, and punish all those like him. Love is dangerous, and we need to teach the world that we are love…and we are dangerous.”copyright protection4PENANAgtK5Qzrglq
