[To Tame a God]
Teala heard the snickers at her back and stiffened. She reached for the goblet and took a long drink, closing her eyes to the sweet liquid that slid smoothly down her throat. She opened them and grinned as her insides began to warm deliciously. The cup disappeared from her hand and
she bowed her head.
As she took a deep breath, she looked up into the face of Zeus, “I am the Lion Tamer, in search of her perfect mate.” With a boldness she had never felt before, she locked eyes with Hercules and her blood raced, her heart pounding wildly in her chest.
Zeus threw back his head and roared with laughter, soon joined by the rest of the gods—except Hera, who only gave a cool stare.
“The Lion Tamer, is it? Well, little tamer, you have been chosen as my favorite tonight, so your wishes and fantasy will be the first to be granted.”
Teala felt herself being lifted off the ground and suspended in the air before the king of gods. She was breathless and her body began to quiver.
“Tell us, Lion Tamer, which of us is to grant your fantasy?”
Teala did not hesitate as her eyes instantly locked with deep green ones. “Your son, Hercules.”
Zeus smiled knowingly, his pleasure easily read in his eyes. “Then you shall have him.”
