Everyone loves Echo, but she talks too much.
Everyone Loves Narcissus, especially Narcissus.
When Hera discovers Echo's deceit, she curses Echo. Echo can only repeat words she hears. When she falls in love with Narcissus, he never says the words she needs to express her affection. Then Narcissus falls in love with his own reflection. Can Echo save him?
"“Don’t say a word!” Mythia mouthed in the sudden silence. Even the birds seemed to sense the danger. There was neither sound nor movement.
Excerpt from "Wordtrapped"
“It’ll work, trust me,” Echo slowly mouthed back. Standing behind the crowd, she couldn’t see the faces of her sister nymphs in front of her. Only Mythia, cowering beside her, met her eyes. Caught like errant children, the nymphs were as frozen as statues, their laughter swallowed up in fear of punishment.
Her sister nymphs were her dear friends. If Hera found out Zeus was among them again, she might destroy them all. All eyes were riveted on Hera. What would the frustrated Queen do this time?
A voice of warning filled Echo’s head, but she was determined to ignore it. Hera will find out. You know she won’t stop until she does. The message was reflected in Mythia’s ashen face. Echo ignored the warning and charged forward.
