This handsome fella is at a local park to me called Hardwick Park. It’s a favourite place of mine and even on a busy day, you can normally find somewhere peaceful to take a bit of a break from it all. This guy is often surrounded by swans, geese and ducks (not to mention the odd seagull) but seems to be having a bit of peace himself when the photo was taken.
“What’s happening?” asked Hera.
Ares could barely contain his excitement. “It’s finally happening, I always thought it would be that pesky Mars whose always strutting his stuff and taunting me but I know he’s all bluff and blunder.”
“What’s finally happened?” asked Hera, impatience beginning to show.
“Those pesky Romans started it!”
“I never thought it would be those wishy-washy water gods that would be the first to come to blows though.”
“Come to blows? What exactly is going on?!” Ares heard Hera’s mom-voice come out and new she meant business.
“Well Neptune made fun of Poseidon’s fork…”
“Trident.” Hera corrected.
“Well, yes, and you know how sensitive Poseidon is about that.”
“I don’t understand, Neptune has a fork, blast, I mean Trident too.”
“Well after the fork slander, Poseidon said Neptune was only the god of fresh water, Poseidon was god of the whole sea”.
“Oh for god’s sake.”
“Hera, where are you going?”
“To do what all mother’s do, speak to Ops and get this all sorted out! There is more to life than names and war!”
Hmmmpphhh. Ares let out a sigh, it had been ages since he’d seen a good battle.
