~~…………. I moved across the floor in a daze and leant on the wall and looked at Lykos lying on bed his brow was furrowed and the sheet was knotted around his legs as he tossed and turned. His fists clenched and unclenched. I paced the floor unsure of what to do; I took a deep breath and walked over to the bed. I sat down and put my hand out and touched him arm.

“Lykos…” I shook him gently “Lykos it’s alright…” he opened his eyes and I saw anger in them like the night in the tent when he had tried to choke me. He pushed me away and sat up his breathing coming in hard gasps as he twisted and put his feet on the floor with his head in his hands “Lykos”

“You were with him...” he pushed up from the bed and walked to the water jug and poured a cup before he sank it “You left here and went to him didn’t you?”

“Went to who?”

“Constantine… you went to him and you…” he braced his arms on the table

“I went to the beach I rode almost half way around the island” I got off the bed, he huffed and shook his head

“I’m not a fool…” he snapped he rubbed the back of his neck like he was trying to get rid of a headache

“Well if you are not a fool you need to stop acting like one” I bit back “I do not have to justify to you where I was I’m doing it because I have nothing to hide”

“Like you hid you were a god” he faced me

“I am not a god because if I were do you think for a minutes I would have the life I had… I have no choice in my parents the same way you didn’t have a choice about yours” I threw my arms out

“But you have a choice to tell people and you have a choice over the men in your bed”

“I do and because I didn’t tell you about Zeus means nothing he is my father and I hate him and the rest of the gods, and yes I have control over the men in my bed and in my entire life I have had two men in my bed and both of them ended up braking my heart… Believe me if I wanted Constantine he would be in that bed and naked and I would have made sure his wife was dead” is eye brow rose “What you’re shocked at that” I tipped my head “I fought in a war I’ve killed more than I can count killing a woman that sent an assassin to kill me  would just be another head” he watched me as I walked over to my armor and allowed my fingers to run over it

“You and he…”

“Me and He nothing” I snapped “I do not want him and a readymade family, he is not the man that makes me catch my breath when I see him, he is not the man that makes me wish we were alone far from here… he is a soldier, he is a General and he will always be part of my life because I am his friend” I slammed my hand on the table “I do not know what lies and terrors Aphrodite has filled your head with but they were just dreams in your mind… I was on the beach with another man” his head snapped up “I was on the beach and my Father came to me and I have really had enough with men and how they think I should be handling my life”

“I’m not trying…”

“Oh you are you’re persecuting me for my Father and for the fact you are jealous I wasn’t’ a virgin and you weren’t’ the one to break me in… but you were the whore to a goddess that wants to get revenge on me for us falling in love and the only way she can do it is by destroying your love and trust for me because she does not want to fight with Zeus over this… so if you want to allow her to do that then so be it… but I’m not going to apologize for my life or my actions or for falling in love with you”

“Aleks” Lykos reached his hand out for me I shook my head

“You need to think and you need to decide what you want and what you want to believe… I would never betray you because if I did you’re lifeless body would have been feed to the crows for deserting your Temple” I picked up my sword “You can stay here I will move rooms… Good night  Lykos” I walked out leaving him  looking after me, I hadn’t meant to be so angry with him for what she had done but I couldn’t help myself……..
