I refuse to marry Ishtar. I recall how she destroyed all her previous mortal lovers when she grew tired of them.
Ishtar is mad with rage that a mere mortal should reject her. She complains to sky father Anu, oldest of the gods. As punishment for my insult, he commands that the "bull of heaven" be released back in Uruk, to destroy my city!
Maybe it doesn't matter? I can still force them to accept me as a god. Then it won't matter if one city is harmed, compared to my influence on all cities. On the other hand, this is Uruk, my responsibility. If I leave now I might lose influence with the gods, but I can arrive back home before the bull has done too much damage. Should I stay or go? Or should I do something else?
