Aiden had resigned himself to his room since his father made the proclamation that he leaves Neptune by nightfall.
He had to see Hestia his sister and lover before he leaves and he had quickly summoned her into his abode with his eyes that longed for her.
He was waiting for her, while he paced the room in restless state.
His gloomy eyes didn't leave the secret door his sister was to use in entering his Chambers.
His room was all white like the cloud having only a bed, vanity mirror and decorations which his mother made with flowers, gold and other shiny things she could get her hands on.
The bed was for when he deemed it fit to rest.
Although gods did not need to sleep they needed to rest. Most times however, the bed was used for making love.
The walls of his room were made of the purest refined gold. It's pillars were as high as the sky and the balcony above the clouds.
Aiden was staring into the darkness, counting the stars when he finally stopped his pacing after a long while.
Troubled about his sisters lateness he perched on the bed then shifted inside. He caressed the satin sheets loving the feel of it, it reminded him of his sister whom he loved. He feared that she might not come, that once again she may have broken a promise to him.
His heart sunk with the thought of it. Didn't she hear that I have been sent away to die?
Does she feel so little of me that she doesn't dim it fit to see me on my very last day in Neptune and maybe my Last day alive? He questioned no one in particular, he was getting angry. This was all his fathers fault and___
Aiden heard the secret door to his room move, a door hidden behind a huge painting of him in the garden sketched by the best painter in Neptune.
He Quickly jumped up thankful that Hestia had kept to her promise. He stood up, turned back and saw her standing before him in all her beauty.
She wore a red scarf that flowed down to her legs and a white gown that was just about the same length with her scarf. Her neck was adorned with red diamonds and her skin was as shiny as gold.
"Sister." Aiden finally said breaking the spell that had locked both their eyes together immediately she stepped into the room. He walked to her and pressed a kiss on her forehead holding her close.
"Father has sent me on a journey of no return sister." He spoke with sadness. His eyes filled with tears. "He really hates me so much, haven't I told you sister, he will do anything to keep me away from you. He will do anything to keep us apart."
"You speak such sad words Aiden." Hestia sighed releasing herself from her brothers tight embrace. "I'm sorry I didn't come for the meeting. I should have been there, I would have stopped him. Mother, mother is useless in these matters, she can't stand up to him even for her own son. I'm ashamed. Take my hand brother." She said stretching forth her hand.
Aiden did as she said. Taking her hand they both sat on the bed, hands together, eyes locked.
"Even if you were there you cannot challenge father you know that. I won't let you endanger yourself for me. We've seen now how he shows no mercy." Aiden sighed.
He pressed his sisters hands reassuringly. He was so thankful that she was here.
His blue eyes were fixated in her green ones, he loved them with all of him. He caressed her hands with his thumb and kissed it. "I don't want to loose you sister, you are all I have."
"And Apollo what did he say about all this?" Hestia asked drawing near to him so they could feed of each others want. "I trust him not to have remained silent."
"He tried to reason with father but father would hear nothing about his thoughts or desire. In the end he left in anger, my poor friend."
"I hope you are not upset with him, I know he would have done more had he not recently fathered a new born child, what's his name."
"Lucio." She said in remembrance. "A fine little lad he is just like his father, and God father."
Hestia could not hold back the stray tear that fell down her cheeks as she spoke. Aiden wiped her tears away with his thumb and licked them off, his eyes not leaving hers as they were filled with such tenderness.
"You don't have to cry for me sister, I'll come back to you."
Hestia held on to her brother, drawing him close to her as she took in his heavenly, tender smell. "I don't want to lose you too. I should have blackmailed him. I should have done something, anything to stop him."
"You can't do anything, I won't let you. You will be cast away. You were supposed to be a Virgin bound to the gods. Do not forget the oaths you've broken. You would be banished to hell!" Aiden exclaimed, in disapproval mixed with love and fear.
"A Virgin yes but he made me sleep with him." Hestia argued she knew Aiden was right, but she was too hurt to accept the truth.
"You had broken the vow first by sleeping with me if you hadn't he wouldn't have thought about taking advantage of you. It's all my fault that you have been put in this chaos maybe I deserve what I am getting. Maybe father doing this on purpose to punish me is exactly what I deserve." Aiden sighed.
"Love is not a crime. I love you and willingly gave myself to you." Hestia muttered, her voice low.
She removed her hands from Aiden's, raised his chin up and moved close to him so she was almost sitting on his thighs. Then she kissed him.
That was all the sign Aiden needed to unlock his fierce desires.
He returned the kiss fiercely. His hands moving to her scarf to pull it off her head so her embroidered gown remained her only clothing. Her cleavage showed through the gown reminding him of what lied underneath.
When they stopped kissing to catch their breaths he looked lovingly at her and smiled. "You are beautiful. Alway's beautiful. So beautiful."
She grinned at his confession. Her heart flustering in love and admiration for her gentle brother.
She wiped his lips with her thumb and kissed his chin softly.
Her core throbbed when he pulled a little part of the skin of her neck with his teeth, seductively staring up at her.
"And I am yours." She declared, in a hushed whisper.
Her eyes held his as he brought his lips up to hers and she kissed him yet again holding his hands in hers.
Their kiss was gentle at first each wanting to savor the last moment they had together before he leaves but when her tongue touched his lower lips he lost his bearing.
