I love Mythology, always have, can't remember when I didn't. My name is Mariah Matthews. I live in the USA, and this blog is about a novel that I'm currently writing, working title: : MYTHS OF HELICON MOUNTAIN.

CHAPTER 23: Hera's POV

Chapter 23: Setting the stage for what happens later at Athena’s Acropolis in Attica:

Hera asks, “Why does a mortal like Minyas need a Treasury?  A Human is but a flyspeck to us.  They live for a brief season and then are naught but a pile of dust upon this planet.” 

Athena replies, “You take what’s given to you for granted, Hera.  Who brings you food and does your bidding?  Until our Taurian leaders find us and send ships to rescue us, we prevail in Thessaly only at the mercy of Deucalion’s people.  Treat them badly and they’ll turn on us without a moment’s notice.  Then we’ll see who’s naught but a pile of dust upon this planet.” 

 Hera can not imagine herself as dust.  Nor can she imagine her Humans turning against her.  She’d strike them dead if they tried and good riddance!  She and Zeus ruled Kabera through fear, depending upon the unsettled minds of their Humans there, and that’s how she rules now on Mount Olympus.  Surely, by this time, ships from Aldebaran are on their way to rescue the Titan lords and their Pleiad servants.  They all believe this.  How can it be otherwise? 

Athena’s words of warning fall upon deaf ears.
