Let the beast out

“The room fell away as his eyes focused on the motions of his hand. His mind was still and quiet, and he was solitary inside as he moved to his right hand and began the dance again.
The world stopped as he retreated into his head, and he let the beast out of its cage on a thick, heavy chain. It roared under the surface of his skin, his control on it always paper thin. It bulged and strained against…

His siren.

“Ares smiled at the memory as steam curled up around him. She had always been his siren, the one he couldn’t resist, the one that he would fight through Tartarus to have. He was addicted to her, and she was to him. They were Mars and Venus, man and woman. They were destined to be together, and he would show her. She would not deny him anymore. Not as long as he had breath.”
-Staci Hart, Snake in the Grass
