    Aphrodite

    She walks down the street glancing at the scenery. She was headed home after a long day. Even though she was frazzled she was almost glowing with the beauty she was named for. She had long loosley braided honey blonde hair and soft mezmerising blue eyes. She wears a flowy white summer dress with thints of gold.
