"Especially not Cupid." Favonius continued as if he hadn't heard. "I fell in love with a mortal named Hyacinthus. He was quite extraordinary." "He…?"

So…Cupid struck you with his arrow, and you fell in love."

I never did, and that made me really fucking angry. Thank God I was learning how to deal with that."
