Hera took the front seat of the carriage, and took charge of the reins. Aphrodite and Athena had to take the back seat. Athena typed instructions into her satnav.
“This is the way!” Athena said, referring to her satnav’s directions and not their method of travel.
Hera pulled on the reins, and the four magnificent white steeds pulled the carriage out from the garden of the home the Goddesses referred to as the Lap.
They gracefully flew Earthbound, feeling the chill of the cool air around their faces, and the wind through their hair.
They ignored the swirling mass of dark clouds, rumbling thunder and intense lightning that was behind them, a side-effect of them crossing over from their realm which is just outside of our known Universe.
They were on a mission. They were looking for a man. Athena in particular had a score to settle.

Gerald looked out of his bedsit window. He watched the dark clouds swirling overhead. He watched the torrential rain pouring from the very same clouds. He jumped when the thunder rumbled loudly overhead, and listened as it trailed off. He jumped again when there was another clap of thunder. He blinked as fork lightning bolted across the sky in front of him; its brightness emphasised by the pitch blackness of the storm clouds. He looked down at the blank piece of paper on the desk in front of him, and sighed.
Words were definitely not coming easy to him today.
