Prompt: Pandora was the Goddess of human souls and emotion. What she felt controlled what human beings felt. Distraught by the rejection of a god/goddess she loved, her emotions became too powerful, causing all near her to go crazy. To protect Olympus and mankind, Zeus and his brothers removed her emotions, sealed them in a box, and removed her memories. The box, full of the world’s happiness, sadness, and lust, was given to Pandora to guard and protect.
However, as centuries pass, Pandora’s loss of emotion takes it’s toll on the Goddess. After all, what does one do without emotion…
Muscles cramped in her chest as years of unshed tears battled to come forward. The goddess gasped in breathless desperation.
Her hands are pressed so tight against the lid, knuckles crack.
“Oh god” She sobs. The silver mist leaks out farther and her breathing accelerates.
