Iris was reading her mail from Electra, her mother from the cloud palace, as she was making her way to Mount Olympus' palace, finding Hera for a message from the Muses and Nymphs. She saw a figure with perfectly styled hair, enchanting blue eyes and his little smile. Iris thought it was love at first sight.
Prologue; Zephyrus Edit
Zephyrus was just roaming above in the clouds, feeling happy and overjoyed. But as he played about, he saw a beautiful young maiden fly as fast as lightning, leaving a scent of flowers behind, flying around and around while collecting some cloud mists. She had the most amazing wings, rainbow colored wings, the most beautiful face he had ever seen and her hands were as delicate as snow.
As they were flying in the clouds, Iris bumped into Zephyrus, dropping hundreds of letters for Hera and Zeus.
"Sorry!" Zephyrus exclaimed and picked them up.
Iris perkily giggled. "It's alright. I'm tired anyways, thanks!"
"Your wings, they're beautiful, just like you. And you travel so fast, how do you do it?" Zephyrus said. "Oh, I didn't introduce myself. I'm Zephyrus, god of the west wind." Kissing her hand in greeting.
Iris blushed. "Thank you, I'm Iris, goddess of rainbows."
They talked and talked for hours, and had fun talking. Iris was so carried away she forgot she left her jug near the Sirens, she was going to have to retrieve it by going to Hebe.
"I'm so sorry. I have to go, Zeus is going to get mad anytime soon if I don't make a rainbow."
"Can't you stay a little more?" Zephyrus begged, pulling on her hand.
"I'm sorry, I can't." Iris said upset.
The next day, Zephyrus remembered to meet Iris up in the clouds. Iris was already waiting there, and she saw Zephyrus.
"Hi, Zephyrus! I feel overjoyed that you remembered!" Iris smiled.
"Of course, why wouldn't I?" Zephyrus asked. Then he got the craziest idea. He knew this was only the second time they met, but he was going to tell Iris he liked her.
"Iris, I have to tell you something." Zephyrus said.
"Me too." Iris replied.
Zephyrus took a deep breath and got his confidence back. "I love you very dearly."
Iris was overjoyed, tackled Zephyrus and kissed him. "That's what I was going to say!" They laughed and laughed since their feelings were exposed, and they decided to live together forever.
