Hera's modern life - chapter 9
“I feel sick,” Wang Li said when we were having dinner.
I placed down the fork in my hand and tried to confuse her, “How? You are eating a lot! Don’t you feel that you are getting fat? After we return home, let’s go lose weight together.”
Unfortunately, Wang Li was not the kind of person who could be easily fooled and my memory blurring trick wasn’t as good as I imagined. As the saying goes, each profession had a specialization. I am not like Hermes who was dedicated to playing with people. Repairing marriage was my specialty. Why couldn’t it be like Harry Potter? As a guardian Goddess of marriage whose own marriage was about to break down I felt a lot of pressure.
“It seems as if there is something I can’t remember…. strange, I was obviously chatting with you, why did I suddenly fall asleep?”
Wang Li was very confused, she placed her hand on her chin, and I refused to answer.
It was strange that the sleep wind was too strong. Even I couldn’t wake her up from her dreams earlier. Wang Li felt very strange when she slept from morning to night.
“Xiao Le,” Wang Li called me.
“You say, have we encountered something not pure or have we been hit by a ghost?”
I almost sprayed the soup from my mouth. I pulled a napkin and wiped my lips, “How is there such a thing? We are in Greece, not in the high-spirited zone of Japan.”
“But it’s really weird.”
Wang Li pouted, casually using her finger to draw on the floor-to-ceiling window.
“It’s like now, I think someone seems to be watching us in the dark.”
Our restaurant was very famous in the local area, especially for its floor-to-ceiling windows that were close to the sea. We had to book the table there two days in advance. In order to comfort Wang Li, I used a little power to grab this position. Initially, I didn’t want to use the power that belonged to Hera at all, but it was hard to resist this kind of thing once it recovered, because it was really convenient to use. I held the glass and took a sip of wine. I wanted to convince Wang Li not to think about it. What should I do? But the next moment, my eyes stopped on something out of the window,and I really spattered the wine.
I saw a face that could scare any child under the age of five, funnily clinging to the glass. Two big black eyes staring at me. Even if I know that human beings couldn’t see him, my heart was still jumping out of control.
“Wang Li, I am sorry. I am suddenly a little uncomfortable. I think I better go out and take a breath of fresh air,” my voice had turned hoarse.Then, without waiting for her answer, I pushed the chair, stood up and ran out of the restaurant. I found that the napkin was still in my hand.
The big man who was lying on the glass saw me running out and was shocked. For a moment, he forgot everything, dragged his leg and limped to run. I shouted, “Try taking another step!”
He froze in the same place and didn’t dare to move. I tried to ignore the pedestrians who saw me as a lunatic. I stepped forward with a black face and tried not to say anything in anger, “Follow me, if you dare to try to escape, you’re dead!”
Finished, I didn’t even dare to think that Wang Li, who was sitting in the restaurant, would treat me as a madman.
Which normal person would yell at the air on the street?
I didn’t use invisibility, but the street disappeared, all those who passed turned blind for a moment!
I walked to a secluded street corner, and made sure that no one was nearby. I took steps back and restored my original goddess form.
No way, Hephaestus was so tall, at least more than two meters. Standing in front of him, the short Han Xiaole, could only look up. Why should I look up to my son?
“Sorry, Hera,” with a hedgehog-like horrible hair and a towering geek’s face, he bowed his head and said docilely.
“Don’t apologize, I don’t blame you.”
He scratched his head and looked up. I couldn’t help feel overwhelmed.
Yes, he was my son. I could remember my pregnancy. He was my first child born to a decade of pregnancy. In the end, it was because I had a big fight with Zeus over his habit of cheating, he had a premature birth. I mourned for at least three days. That night, I almost didn’t want to live.
As a result, the child born did not look like me or Zeus. He was born with a blazing flame, as the Goddess of wisdom predicted. For Zeus it was an evidence of my struggle. However, because Hephaestus was ugly, Zeus never liked him or even held him once. At that time, I was just married to Zeus. I didn’t handle the countless illegitimate children and Goddesses as calmly as I did later. I didn’t hide in my own palace all the time with my tearful face.
It wasn’t until Hephaestus fell from Mount Olympus and broke his leg did I suddenly remember the fact that I still had a son.
It was a pity that it was too late to make up. Even if I was a Goddess, I couldn’t do anything. Hephaestus could only walk with a crippled leg. Every time I saw him, I got uncomfortable and felt that I was the most unqualified mother in the world.
“Don’t apologize, I am very happy to see you. You know, even if I don’t like every God anymore, you will never be on that list.”
Squeezing out a blunt smile, I reached out and touched his metal-hard hair. God knows when was the last time I did this, maybe when he was still on Mount Olympus when his wife and his brother betrayed him. He had tied them together with gold nets, which shamed them. Initially, I rebuked him for doing something so ugly. But when he saw me, the usual docile and quiet man got angry, and yelled at me that this marriage should not have happened from the beginning. The guilt in my heart overwhelmed everything. So I touched his hair and said a lot of gentle words.
Then I was thrown into this world by Zeus. Suddenly I got an impulse to curse and swear. No, no, I have to maintain a dignified and majestic image in front of my son.
