Aphrodite and her human lover, Adonis lie in a meadow after a long hunt. They've just taken a bath in a nearby stream and are letting the sun dry them off. Aprhodite reflects on her affections for Adonis and decides to show him just how much she appreciates him.

A cool breeze blankets us alongside the gentle sun...birdsong fills the air and every so often, we are greeted by a cautious doe or a squirrel. It’s so peaceful here. Far away from the tensions of Olympus and the cruel dark of the underworld. My skin is chilled from our recent bath in the river.
