Aphrodite was green.
Athena’s satnav system had directed the four-horse-drawn chariot directly through the fiercest of storm clouds. Athena and Hera were both ‘sat’ in the front of the chariot, and Aphrodite had the back seat all to herself.
The chariot plummeted, gained height, and flipped over right and left. It was all Aphrodite could do to keep herself inside the vehicle.
The two goddesses in the front seat – which was only intended for one – couldn’t move as they were so tightly squeezed in, although they both had trouble holding onto their respective pieces of equipment; Athena and her direction giving gizmo, and Hera with the horse’s reins. This was her chariot, and there was no way anybody else was going to steer it.
Hera managed to steer the chariot out of the way of a bolt of lightning, just in time.
Aphrodite’s green became a paler shade.
