*Laughter and unintelligible chatter can be heard*
"Ophelia and the Earth, I CURSE you!"
In Olympus's secret garden, two friends (Ophelia Elias, and Augustus Anastas), unlike any other pair, sat and shared the delicious fruits before them. They talked as if time had never passed,surely making up for lost memories, as the lilies stared down at them.
Athena arrived in the garden, finding a peach she thought ripe. She picked it from the tree and bit, allowing the juices of the peach to drip onto her chin. Ophelia and Augustus continued their chatter.
As Athena turned to wipe her chin, Ophelia caught her eye. Immediately she dropped the fruit onto the silk grass. She was WRITHING in anger! How dare Ophelia have beauty more vast than Athena's?!!? She had to do something. She decided she would curse the mortal world to perish. This would surely teach Ophelia and her clueless mortal friend a lesson!
After those words escaped the mouth of Athena, Ophelia felt something inside her change. Before Athena's escape, she shed her robes and burst into the air! What was happening? Light beamed lustrously from Ophelia's figure, sending beams of hope, optimism, and healing onto the damaging Earth. She was flung to the ground, unmoving.
Augustus stood in awe and complete horror due to the events just occurred! He fell to the silk grass of the garden ground next to his friend, though soon after, she rose. She exclaimed her concern for the Earth's condition, and suggested she go check upon it. To her surprise and delight, the Earth and the people were healing slowly, but surely.
Ophelia returned to the garden. She called to Athena to come forward, and told her the severity of the things she had done with disgust. Athena walked away, guilty, defeated.Augustus waited at the other end of the garden for Ophelia. She told him of the Earth's recovery, and he was overjoyed. They shared a warm embrace before sharing a dance, and gazing upon the stars. The calla lilies watched with attentive eyes.
