Title: Golden Apples
Summary: A collection of drabbles about Archie,
On their morning runs,
Archie would try to keep up but
She got it. He had his pride. He didn’t want to admit he couldn’t keep up with her. Sometimes she felt the same way, like when she was pinned and refused to call uncle.
She just wished that he could tell her to slow down, so she could run beside him.
It was always a dangerous endeavor to accept the gifts of gods.
The ancient Greek myths spoke to the trickery, vanity and greed of the gods where they did things for their own gains and amusements.
Though Archie’s personal experience with the gods showed them to be something of a Disneyfied version of their ancient personas, he was hesitant to trust them completely.
For this reason, Archie was unsure if he should accept Aphrodite’s gift, no matter how sincere she seemed. His own experience, and that of his ancestors, had taught him just how dangerous a golden apple could be.
