Their explosive encounter will be spoken of for years to come. More
Beautiful and dangerous, Hera has become a figure of legend: a powerful goddess gifted with terrible powers known for being trapped in a marriage with the sly, despicable Zeus. In this short story, Zeus and Hera’s relationship has become so volatile and toxic they have not spoken or seen each other in centuries. Hera wanders the Earth alone and Zeus spends his time bedding human women and getting them pregnant and then leaving them. It has become a twisted game between them. He doesn't try to hide his actions from Hera. He wants her to find out about his lovers. He wants to shame her. Or, at least, that is what Hera thinks as she raises her hand to knock on the door of Cassandra White.
