Aphrodite's lost love by MistressMustang Aphrodite's lost love by MistressMustang
Alright, yet another myth drawn and done. Only took a few hours, I'm getting quicker at this. :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Myth: [link]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Short version of myth:

Aphrodite got hurt by her son's arrow. Adonis came up and helped her. She fell in love. She quit taking care of all her things cuz she was soooooooooooooooooooooo in love. She told Adonis one rule: Don't touch the hearts of lions and bristly boars. Of course since he was a man he wouldn't listen. So him and his men tried to kill a boar and he lost. He died. She was sad. And so she sprinkled nectar on the blood; and as they mingled, bubbles rose as in a pool on which raindrops fall, and in an hour's time there sprang up a flower of bloody hue like that of the pomegranate. Ta-da!

I feel sad for her. :(

Lemmie know what yall think! No stealing please! :police:
