All she wanted was a dance.
Years she had waited for her chance to spin and glide. To be free.
“Is it time yet?” she asked Percy.
“Not yet. Soon, Cassie. Our time of rest will be over.”
She sighed. How much longer?
Percy reached out to her, to hold her. Yet she was still too far. As they had always been.
Together but separate. Stuck in a timeless void.
Cassie looked to the earth. “Soon, Perseus, we will dance together.”
“Yes, Cassiopeia. Once the earth has finished her life cycle and the stars can move again, we will dance.”
