The Baby Theory

Humor / Romance

Ch 1: Supremely Pissed

The twelve Olympian Gods (along with Hades and Hestia) were having their usual gathering to discuss important worldly matters. Like always, the meeting room became chaotic as soon as all the Gods were present.

Zeus and Hera sat in the middle of the table arguing about the amount of women Zeus flirted with within that week.

On the right side of couple, Athena and Poseidon stood nose-to-nose shouting verbal insults and name-calling at each other whereas Artemis kept shooting silver arrows while chasing her twin brother Apollo and his partner-in-crime Hermes.

At the far left of the table Ares and Hephaestus kept sending death glares at each other whilst staying near Aphrodite, and Hades, Persephone, and Demeter were having a heated discussion about…cereals. Hestia witnessed the Gods' and Goddesses' childish antics in a silent but clearly amused manner.

Surprisingly, Aphrodite wasn't too keen on gushing about the rivalry between her husband Hephaestus and her lover Ares; instead, she was thinking of one Percy Jackson and his beloved love interest: Annabeth Chase.

The goddess was dying to know of his and Annabeth's romantic progress and if both Demigods have started dating already.

She magically pulls out a pink mirror from her non-existent pocket and stares at it intently. The mirror then showed a pink marbled room – which she named the "Matchmaking Room" – full of stings of different colors: golden yellow for the gods, silver for the demigods and plain black for the mortals.

She flicked the mirror again until it focused on the silver strings and squinted to look for the slightly golden one. Since Percy practically plunged in the river Styx, it made him sort-ofimmortal. When she saw it, no words could describe how angry the Goddess of Love felt at that moment.

Aphrodite produced a dark aura after discovering that no string had attached to Percy's yet. She gritted her teeth and found the gesture uncomforting so she decided to take the anger and frustration on something else aside from the now-broken pink mirror she held on awhile ago.

Unfortunately that 'something else' happened to be the council's grand table itself.

Aphrodite angrily flipped the gigantic marbled table, effectively destroying it in the process and earned the immediate attention of all the Olympians present.

Thirteen pairs of wide eyes stared at her in shock since it was the first time she ever showed physical capability.

The goddess uncharacteristically huffed, sent a 'don't-you-dare-follow-me' look to Ares and glared at the rest like it was their entire fault that Percabeth still hasn't dated yet before power walking towards the exit.

As soon as the doors were slammed close, the gods looked at each other and shrugged; chaos then resuming like nothing had happened.

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

MelanyFrey: This story is just so realistic and so amazingly written that I felt I was a part of it. It starts off completely ordinary, describing the lives of three young brothers, then slowly shifting the focus on one of them, putting him into the spotlight and following him into this unusual, but yet so r...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

Kasey Pinney: This book had me from the beginning. I never came across a part I didn't want to read or that didn't entertain me. The characters are well developed and the internal conversations fit the book well.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
