Every ten years, the Gods see fit to punish mankind for his misdeeds. The great Goddess Hera chooses nine unlucky (or perhaps VERY lucky) men to curse with a pussy. This story tells the tale of nine such men: Herodotus, Barnabas, Mydon, Stentor, Nikolaos, Artaxerxes, Perikles, Leiandros, and Darius, who never saw it coming.

“Nikolaos,” Deimos told her, because Brasidas was wonderful - more wonderful than Deimos deserved after hurting him so badly, nearly killing him in that last fight. He took the corner of Kassandra’s blanket and picked at it, pulling at the threads and the fuzz and the tiny tears Ikaros’ talons had made in it. “I don’t understand. He let me be thrown from Mount Taygetos but… We care for each other. He loves me. He’s Pater. But you don’t see him like that.”
Deimos is healing, but not healed; Nikolaos confuses him. Kassandra will help.

Pythagoras, in another world, could have been Nikolaos on that deck, kissing Myrrine in the shadow of the sunset. Kassandra could have grown up in Sparta with a different kind of mentor to train and guide her, to actually prepare her for her own nonsense destiny. Alexios might never have had to become the Deimos who kissed the scar he’d given Brasidas late at night when he thought no one would find out about their trysts. So much hurt avoided, in that other world, that other simulation.
Kassandra and her family, when all is said and done.
