Eros' Story: Part 1

by Amy | Score: 4850

Eros Zanas is an architect who has been searching through one of the Greek temples for days without sleep, as if he doesn't do this assignment well, he could lose his job.
A lab technician named Nikitas Logidis is going to take over the site soon and turn it into a marker production laboratory and he needed to act swiftly.
Eros comes across an altar which has an engraving of the events that happened before Rome took over Greece. All of a sudden, Eros falls into a deep sleep and wakes up in a bed.
Confused, he sits up and meets a woman who claims to be his wife, Voula Zanas, who has brought him breakfast, a fried egg. After a look around the house, he realizes he has somehow been taken back to Ancient Greece.
Voula takes him out for a walk and they meet an auctioneer who sells them some silk. Eros takes a liking of Voula as she is smart and inquisitive but gets angry with the auctioneer's sexism.
They get in a fight and Eros is almost arrested. Voula's parents try to convince her he has changed and is a bad person but she refuses to leave him.  The goddess Athena, impressed by Eros' bravery and courage, blesses him with immense wisdom.
Eros becomes a philosopher and helps the Greek army build greater weapons and advance in technology, while also becoming closer and closer to Voula. They soon have two sons and a daughter together, Alexis, Dimos, and Iliana .
One day however, Eros wakes up from his sleep in a hospital. It turns out, Nikitas drugged him and did experiments on him to learn more on Ancient Greece.
Eros becomes depressed, longing for Voula and his family back.
