New demigod visiting Olympus: who’s that?
Aphrodite: that’s Ares, my boyfriend
Demigod: and the other one?
Aphrodite: that’s Apollo, Ares’ boyfriend
Demigod: how does that work?
Aphrodite: They’re gay, but sometimes Ares and I make out. But don’t worry, Hephaestus is cool with it
Demigod: who’s Hephaestus??
Aphrodite: Hephaestus is my husband. But if you ever see someone kissing him, that’s not me. That would be his girlfriend Aglaia, my handmaiden.
Aphrodite: if you ever see ME kissing a girl, it’s Persephone, who’s married to Hades. Got it?
Forever and Ever

N/A: I know I was absent for almost a month and I'm very sorry for that, but I went through a terrible block and couldn't write, for a brief moment I thought about giving up writing, but after so long I finally managed to write something I really enjoyed and that reminded me why I love writing. Forgive me for the sudden disappearance, I swear it won't happen again.
It all started with a dream... you remember every little detail letting every little memory take over your mind, every dirty word and the little whimpers of your name that made you want him even more. Little by little you imagined what it would be like if it wasn't all a dream, what it would be like to really feel him so close to you? would the touch of his hands on your skin be as soft and rough as it seemed? What would it be like to kiss or touch him? At that moment you would do anything to find out the answer.
He was dangerous, feared, you grew up hearing horror stories about all the bad things he was capable of, but if Billy was such a cruel being how could he still be the most beautiful thing you had ever laid your eyes on?
Slowly that unholy and reckless desire grew inside you, even though your most rational part begged you to let go of that insanity, nothing could stop that feeling.
"Take me with you" you begged one day, before Billy left again for his home, the underworld.
"What did you say?" he asks turning to look at you, the brown eyes were deep and so penetrating, you could easily get lost in them.
"Take me with you." repeats "I hear it's quite lonely down there, alone, no light...no life."
"I hear it's not much different from the way you live here" to a slight amusement in his eyes when he mentions the way you lives with your mother "always trapped, like a little bird in a cage."
"I can be great company and if you get tired you can send me away whenever you wish" for a moment you wondered if that whole scene didn't make you pathetic, but wouldn't mind if the answer was yes "Please" it would be more than perfect to finally get out of your mother's over protection.
Billy moves closer, his gaze lingering on you getting even more intense, his long slim fingers touch the skin of your arm gently moving up the entire length of it letting a slight chill hang over your entire body, he moves a lock of your hair away from your face smoothing the small purple flower stuck in your ear before smiling again.
"And what's in it for you?" He was so close you could have sworn you felt his breath hit your face.
"Freedom, an adventure...maybe a little fun"-you said the last word only to yourself.
The god of the underworld walks away with that beautiful smile still stamped on his face and you let out the breath you didn't even know were holding until that moment, he let his gaze rise from your feet to your head impressed with the almost angelic beauty that belonged to you.
"Okay..." His voice sounds deep with a fake irritation in the background "Be here tomorrow at exactly midnight and I will take you with me, no delays, but you will leave as soon as I want you to."
You nod with a barely contained smile on your lips, you had gotten what you wanted without even needing that much effort.
Billy turns around and starts to walk away smiling mischievously to himself as he thinks about how easy it had all been. Just a few nasty dreams and a poorly worked out agreement had made the silly little girl fall for his plan even easier than he had imagined. There was no turning back, you were his...and so it would be forever and ever.
