Zeus frowned. “You’ve developed feelings for this creature?”
Ares shoved his hands in his slacks pockets. “I have.”
“And Aphrodite? What about her?”
“What about her?”
Zeus settled in his leather chair and tilted back a bit as he studied his son. “You’ve been together for thousands of years. Your affair is legendary. You’re ready to give her up for this...vampire?”
“We haven’t been together for a while. Thanks for staying up to date on that. Aphrodite is dating a vampire hunter.”
“Is that so?”
“Look, Zeus, I’m not here to chitchat. I’m sure you have some shindig in the other room to prepare for. There’s probably a shitload of people in the other room ready to throw money at you. Can you help me or not?”
Zeus stared at him for a long moment. “No.”
Ares snarled. “Then what do you want of me? You summoned me. I’m ready to get out of here.”
“Stay away from the vampire. End it.”
Ares glared at him. Them he felt it. A smothering drowsiness filled the far recess of his mind. He closed his eyes and let it take over for a moment. Then he thought of Juliet. He focused all of his concentration on her. Then he thought of her safe, tucked in the red satin sheets of his bed. The drowsiness grew faint until it was just a slight irritation. She was now in another country away from this madness. It was that easy to move her. His cock stiffened as imagined her naked. It was time to get home.
He opened his eyes and grinned at his father. “When was the last time I listened to what you had to say, Dad? I’ll do what I want when I want. And I want Juliet. You think there’s consequences of us being together? Fuck the consequences. And fuck you. I’ll figure out another way to keep her.”
“She’s not a pet, Ares.”
“No shit.” Ares spun on his toe and stormed out the door. “I’m out. Tell Mom hello for me.”
He didn’t stop his stride until he reached the front door. When his foot crossed the threshold, he disappeared into thin air.
