The ancient goddess of love and beauty
Ignites a tumultuous spark
From the Blacksmiths ire and fury
To the Warriors jealous heart
She longs for her handsome Adonis
But the skilled hunter cannot halt his fate.
As the wild boars tusks pierce tender mortal flesh.
Youth is forever fallen, love abandoned, destiny
no longer awaits.
