Pertemis: A Wolf’s Tale

Chapter 5 Tales Under the Glittering Carvens

Artemis's POV

"We're here" he said.

In front of us was the entrance of a cave. It was opened at the side of a cliff. It was wide, with diameter of two meters and high about one. One either sides, crystalline rock had been shaved into Grecian columns. The arch was glittering with little diamonds or some kind of precious rocks. At the top, moss and some kind of seaweed plants dropped down like curtain. The aroma of sweet and fresh coming out from the cave really caught my attention as they assaulted my nostrils.

Next to the cave was the cliff, few meters below of white limestone. The sea clashed its wave on the rock, but instead of the roaring crashing sound, it sounded calm and pleasant like a sequence of piano.

The ocean sent a tinkling breeze of cool air and little of sea water to my skin. The sun was now starting to hit the horizon far far away. It mixed its orange and golden colour with the blue clear sky.

I turned to Perseus to see his annoying grin. "You coming?"

He set the natural seaweed curtain aside for me with a gesture of inviting.

I huffed "And why should I?"

"Well if you don't want to come" he said. "I'm going. There's something I want to show you."

He stepped inside, not thinking of what I was going to say next. I gave him a glared and looked away. There's no way I'm gonna enter that cave. Get along with him in one room. That would tear down my reputation. He has already slept with me on the same bed, I wouldn't want anything similar like that to happen again.

But the moment he's gone. The warmed sun turned dark by the clouds. The breeze from the sea turn to strong winds wielding in. I shivered from the contact.

Really? Do you really have to do that Fates? First my mother wants me to go with him, now you want that to happen to?

That sea-green eyes of his always looked so innocent yet piercing that I never made eye contact with him for long. His eyebrows knitted together made him look even cuter than-wait what the Hades!? Why am I having those negative thoughts now? Twice I have thought about a male, twice my heart twisted and the weird feeling happened.
