The Love Story Of The Underworld God: Pluto

764 words - 4 pages

Our story takes place a long time ago, where gods and humans lived together in the world. Gods and humans did not, however, mix together much, but when they did, more often than not, it was because of love. Pluto, one the three sons of the king of the gods, Saturn, knew nothing about love and frankly could not care less about it. His main concern was to be the best possible warrior out of all the gods, winning as many prizes as possible. He had just acquired a golden chariot drawn by four black stallions from his brother Neptune.
One day, he was riding this very chariot in the sky, when he heard the cries of a young maiden, who was being chased by a three headed dog in the forest. While he didn’t like to get involved with humans, something about the girl drew him closer and when the dog would have bitten the girl, he drew her into his chariot. The moment he met the beautiful green eyes of the maiden, he fell in love with her. Even though the girl was scared, she quickly understood what had happened and thanked the handsome god, who had saved her life and invited him to her home.
From that day on, Pluto visited the girl, whose name was Ariana, every day, helping her around the house, walking with her from merchant to merchant, dancing with her on the festivals.

She will die soon; you can’t make her an immortal and you cannot become a mortal. Save yourself the trouble and leave her now!” However, Pluto did not listen and kept visiting Ariana, even thinking about marrying her.
When news came to Jupiter, Pluto’s oldest brother, what he was planning, Jupiter decided to take action. He followed Ariana around when Pluto was absent and tried to find a fault with her, however, he could not find anything.
