Voyage to Athens and Eleusis (41.6)
April 13, 2017
True to his word, Alliona and Sophie were allowed to dress in looser gowns typical of upperclass matrons of Athens. He advised them that sheer gowns, such as worn by Iris for the procession, are forbidden during the day, “Darlings, I am sure you remember the effect the two of you had upon Timaeus and Critias when they first met you in your ceremonial armor? They were transfixed and forgot about Iris.
“The effect is much greater today, as both of you have immortalized erythrocytes circulating in your blood stream. Subsequently, during our teaching days, the two of you must do nothing to enhance your beauty. I have created a wonderful perfume for you two to use during the day. It is designed to make you appear no prettier than when they saw you in your armor and focus the attention of the males on the lessons and exercises.
“Additionally, I have hidden your pregnancies from the population. So the only persons who will actually perceive you, as pregnant, will be the elementals, Iris, and myself. Iris will not betray our ruse for she is now in love with me and worships the two of you. She will conceive on the next full moon, on December 30, and be joined by blood to the three of us.”
While Gabriel was speaking, Alliona carefully observed Sophie for any untoward negative responses to his instructions and information. Sophie seemed perfectly happy with the proposals, even when Gabriel explicitly mentioned Iris.
In fact, upon mention of the upcoming full-moon, she innocently asked, “Honey, I am glad that Alliona and I will be with you on the night you satisfy all of her desires. I like Iris and our ‘fairy tale’ needs three Sisters and not just two,” turning to Alliona, “am I not right, Sister?”
Alliona responded, “Sounds very nice to me. I remember reading of a Djinn fairy tale about a wonderful magician who married three Sisters during the Great Djinn War. The Magician and the Sisters lived happily together during the pregnancy. None minded that they shared the attention of their Magician, for he was always available to each Sister, as if he had only married one. Moreover, the Sisters found that the more they loved the Magician, the more he loved each of them, and the more they adored each other.
“Toward the final weeks, the Magician was called away so to deal with a civil disturbance. While absent from his castle, three evil Djinn Brothers came and kidnaped the Sisters, each Djinn taking one Sister to his fortress. Though, each Brother lusted mightily after the Sister in his keep, every attempt at rape failed for each Sister was protected by several small dragons with extremely sharp teeth, but no flames.
“Each sister delivered a beautiful daughter during the full-moon on the fifth day of captivity. The deliveries were accomplished by birthing elementals assigned to each. Even though, the Brothers refused to feed each Sister food or drink so to induce them into carnality, the Magician’s kitchen elementals thwarted their plans.
“The Magician had returned two days following the abduction, but was unable to locate their whereabouts for about a week. He was worried, even though he realized that each Wife was protected by three young dragons he had assigned to each. The Sisters had been imprisoned for some nine days before the Magician could locate and rescue each.
“The Magician was not merciful during the raid and ogre and Djinn carcasses rested everywhere. As for the three Brothers, the Magician reformed their stance by giving them severe and progressing ankylosing spondylitis so that they were bent forward at the hips, permanently 70-degrees from the vertical, completely emasculated them, cut out their tongues, and banished them naked to a very dark place for the remainder of their miserable existence.
“At last, the Sisters and Magician were reunited and home. After hugging and kissing each other, the Magician brought each baby to its rightful Mother. When the daughters were produced, the Sisters immediately saw that each daughter appeared identical to her siblings. Perfect triplets. They looked with astonishment at the Magician.”
The Magician laughed, “Darlings, I love and respect each of you equally. I treat each of you equally. The love shared by each of us is pure and honest. So of course, the babies are triplets, identical in all appearances. Would you expect anything less from your Magician Husband?”
Sophie replied, “Alliona, did you just make up the fairy tale? It rather sounds like a possible future for Iris, you, and myself,” turning to Gabriel, “we aren’t going to be kidnaped by evil Djinn, are we?”
Gabriel smiling said, “No, darling. Alliona’s story is from an old Djinn fairy tale book. It is called, the Miracle of the Three Sisters. It is just a teaching tale for Djinn children.”
Two chariots arrived in the courtyard outside the Erechtheion close to noon. The first chariot carried a driver and two magistrates, Timaeus and Critias; the second carried Iris, her High Priest, Triptolemus, and a driver.
Iris and Triptolemus allowed the two magistrates to greet Gabriel first. As the duo was convinced that their three guests were divine, in unison, the magistrates greeted Gabriel, “Hail noble Eugenis, health and prosperity for you and your divine wives.”
“And greetings, I return to both of you, your families, your slaves, and concubines; though, I cannot say I approve of either slaves or concubines. But, I am not here for social reform. I have another agenda,” responded Gabriel.
Needless, the comment did catch the magistrates off guard. Gabriel whispered to Alliona, “We might as well give them some subtle social direction while we are here.”
As the magistrates interacted with Gabriel, the High Priest whispered to Iris, “High Priestess, our Guests are not mortals, I can feel it in my heart. What god and goddess they be, I know not. But, they are Divine.”
Iris replied, “Hierophant, I shall share a sacred secret with you, as I have known you since I first came to Our Temple. You have always honored my secrets and those of your vestal virgins so I can trust you. For the god permits me to tell you that they nay are mortal, they are Immortals. The god is Apollo. The goddesses are Demeter and Kore. But, you must act as if they are no more than messengers from their land. Promise?”
The Hierophant nodded his head affirmatively.
After a short conversation, Gabriel invited the magistrates to sit.
Immediately, Iris and Triptolemus descended the chariot and came to greet the Guests. Iris and the High Priest bowed at the waist for a moment in front of Gabriel, who remained seated at his coffee table. Iris said, “Divine Eugenis, may I present our High Priest, Triptolemus.”
Triptolemus said, “I am most honored to be in the presence of Divine Eugenis and his Divine Wives. I pledge my heart, my mind, and my body in service to your desires. May all the blessings of Demeter and Kore rain down upon you,” his face flushed for a short moment, as the words left his lips before he could stop them, but it did not matter for it was a common greeting in Eleusis.
Gabriel smiling replied, “Greetings dear Triptolemus and my precious Iris. Please come join my precious wives and the magistrates at our table.”
Sophie stood up from her chair. Though, no one knew Sophie was speaking, Iris heard Sophie’s sweet and honey voice within her head, “Come, Iris, you may sit next to my Husband and I will sit next to you. Mother and I know you are in love with our Husband, your virgin pelvis aches for his touch, come, let him feel how wet you are.”
Iris moved to sit next to Gabriel amazed that Demeter and Kore were not jealous as would by typical of Hera or Aphrodite. As she stood in front of her vacant seat, it seemed that Time had stopped and the Hierophant and magistrates were as statutes. Alliona, Sophie, Gabriel, and she were not frozen.
She again heard Sophie’s voice in her head, “Iris, sit in the chair to Eugenis’ right and pull up the front of your gown and take our Husband’s right hand and place it between your legs where your fountain of wetness pours forth its slippery nectar.”
Iris reached down and took Apollo’s right hand and spread her thighs apart so she could place Gabriel’s right palm against her maidenhead. Her labia and pelvis were not marred by hair and she held Apollo’s hand tightly against her clitoral sheath. Apollo’s hand grew warmer and warmer. Soon she experienced an unknown spasm and deep pleasure coursing through her very being. She would have fallen if Sophie had not stabilized her.
As Iris continued to have spastic discharges, Sophie remarked to Alliona, “Sister, what a good omen. Do you not agree? I think Iris will be a good addition so we can fulfill your Djinn fairly tale.”
Gabriel removed his hand, which had not even moved. “After our High Priestess readjusts her gown, I will restart Time and let us see what transpires.”
Time restarted exactly where it had stopped, and Iris seemed unaffected by her first experience of pleasure. She really did not understand what happened or why, but she understood that she had been accepted by Demeter and Kore and was to become a second daughter. One of the magistrates asked Iris a question and she answered as if nothing had occurred between her and Eugenis. Now that her serpent had been awoken, she desired more.
