Hermes was pacing back and forth in Olympus' throne room. In fact, he was worried because a prophecy had recently been made about him.
"The god of the thieves one day shall meet
the one person who makes his heart beat.
He shall fall in love with the daughter of the seers,
who will make all of his angst disappear."
After everyone had been informed of this miraculous prophecy, it had been decided that Apollo would father the child. He was, after all, a prophetic seer, and his prophecies always came true. Hermes was full of joy, until he realized one question remained. Who was his love?
He had no idea where to start looking for her, and the gods had never heard of any other seers apart from Apollo and his children. However, the thief refused to lose hope. They would just have to pay attention to Apollo's daughters until they found her.
This, was his journey for love.
