“Come on, sister. Cheer up!” I say while lightly rubbing Lucy’s back.
She says nothing but just looks away from me.
Right now, we are sitting on the back of a small wagon, going on a well-build road surrounded with dense forest on both the sides. Our speed is rather slow but the pace is steady. In fact, the road is also empty except us and the only voices resounding here right now are the hooves of the horses pulling our cart and the light chirping of the birds returning to their nests as the night commences.
Even inside the wagon, there is only the driver except us because I reserved the whole ride for just the two of us. Though I also made sure to place enough boxes of goods between us so that he cannot see what we are doing back here.
And why did I did these things? Well, because I wanted to get a bit flirty and touchy with my sister along the way. I even hoped to get a nice and long blowjob from her in the end.
Though it’s all in vain as my sister’s mood is a little too bad right now.
“I get that you hate our mother, but aren’t you even excited to meet our other sisters?” I ask.
Lucy’s head turns back to me with a strange look is on her face.
“I decided to never see any of them again when I left home with you, Lucas. And you know the reason behind it. But you are still forcing me to…”
Her voice trails away.
Yes, I very well know the reasons.
Lucy absolutely hates our mother because when Zeus was tormenting me, she did nothing to save her own son.
Well, I can second this because I haven’t even seen her face but still…
What makes Lucy even angrier is the fact that everyone in my family was actually happy and content except for me.
According to Lucy, Zeus never mistreated her or any of my other sisters. In fact, that fucker even fulfilled most of their wishes to make them happy. And as for our mother, according to Lucy, Zeus loved her as well. He used to shower her in jewels and riches. Her life was a really luxurious one.
And Lucy just couldn’t bear seeing this extreme difference in treatment and that no one is doing anything about it as well… which eventually resulted in us running away.
Though I also know that Lucy doesn’t actually hate our sisters as all of them were really young and couldn’t have done anything much. It’s just that she doesn’t want to return to this previous life of hers.
But well, all of this is what Lucy thinks.
Me personally? I would love to meet my sisters. In fact, I want to meet my mother as well.
Knowing how big of a bastard Zeus is, who knows if he did some magic stuff on my mother to keep her from helping me before?
Though Lucy disagrees, I would like to see and know things by myself.
And after requesting a lot and even falsely getting angry with her, I convinced Lucy to come with me as well. Though now, she is angry with me…
“I really appreciate that you agreeing to come. It really means a lot to me… Lucy,” I say.
The expressionless face of my sister breaks and her cheeks blush. I can even trace a slight smile forming on her face which she is trying really hard to suppress.
Hahaha… You are so cute, sister.
No matter how angry Lucy is with me, I have a few absolute measures I can use to please her.
The simplest one which i just did, is by calling her by her name. The reason it works too well is because the only time I call my sister by her name is when we are either having sex or when she is angry with me.
I don’t know why but she really loves to hear me call her name.
I open my mouth to start teasing my sister a little more but suddenly, both of our bodies jerk back as the wagon gains speed. Curiously, I look outside to see the reason why.
“Hey, we have reached Asione!” I say to my sister.
Asione is one of the many small towns in the monarchical country Leontactus and is also the hometown we left 12 years ago.
As we move nearer to it, I start to see high walls made of stones surrounding the town, providing it protection from the creatures and monsters of the surrounding forest.
Though I have seen the inside of this town once before as well ( when I was running away with Lucy) but I don’t remember much of it because of the situation at that time.
Getting even more closer, my eyes start to focus on the huge wooden entrance gate. The area around it is brightly illuminated by magical stone and I can also see a few guards sitting and talking to each other in front of it leisurely.
Though the moment they see our wagon approaching, a few of them stand up and gestures us to stop.
I thought that they would do some strict body checking (I was prepared to fight if any of the males tried to put even a finger on Lucy’s body) but they just glance inside the wagon once before opening the gate for us.
Thought the town doesn’t have much grandeur, it’s still really beautiful with well lighted and neatly arranged houses, clean roads and artistically designed structures. As we move further on the road, the liveliness of the city starts increasing along with the increase in density of the population.
The ratio of non-human races looks fairly well here. I can see Centaurs, Satyrs and also a few natural spirits here and there. And I am sure that demigods must be here as well, though distinguishing them from normal humans is a near-impossible thing.
In just a few more minutes, we reach the town square which is bustling with people. There are different types of shops, food stalls and many other recreational places doing their business in the prime time of the day.
Our ride also ends here and after I pay the driver 2 silver drachmas (almost triple the normal amount because I reserved the whole wagon), we get off.
I look at Lucy and see that her face has become exceptionally expressionless again.
Well, she must be reminiscing the memories of this place… or not.
“Sister, do you remember the way? Or should we ask someone?” I ask Lucy.
Without answering me, she simply starts moving forward. I too begin following her without saying anything anymore.
Sometimes, it’s just better not to nag her much, even if it’s intended playfully…
Me and Lucy keep moving and the number of people we see starts lessening again. The night is in full bloom right now but the street is visible because of the faint moonlight and the magic stones fixed after every few meters.
Suddenly, Lucy stops and looks back at me.
She says while pointing at a nice looking house which is slightly larger than the other ones around it. From outside, it looks as if it’s properly and regularly maintained. And I can also see the lights from it’s windows, indicating that there are people inside right now.
Well, I guess this is it. Time to meet my family…
The moment I start to move forward, Lucy puts her hand on my shoulder.
“Are you sure about this, Lucas?” she asks in a toneless voice.
“Yes, I am,” I answer immediately.
“And what if they don’t want us here? What if something happen that you will regret forever?” She asks.
“Don’t worry, sister. It’s not like our bastard father lives here anymore. And well, we will always have each other even if everyone else rejects us,” I answer with a smile.
Lucy does not react but I can see that her face has softened a bit.
I know that my sister just doesn’t want to see me get hurt in any way…
I again move closer to the house and this time Lucy follows silently.
Reaching the front door, I knock twice.
“Who is there!? Name yourself!”
And instantly, a sweet cute female voice enters my ears.
Hmm… This voice does not sound mature enough. It must be one of my sisters.
I take a deep breath in as a slight smile forms on my face…
“I am Lucas. Your brother. And I have come back home.”
