            “Compromise?” Sid asked.copyright protection3PENANAPEXbMOccnL

            “Yeah, compromise, it means a settlement of differences by mutual concessions.” Kara explained. “And we need to make one.”copyright protection3PENANAUM6uFcquN6

            “I knew what it means.” Sid muttered. “I was just expressing that I didn’t think we needed one.”copyright protection3PENANAVh2AFmgD6z

            “Sid, you’re an idiot.” I told him. “We definitely need a compromise. This Blade problem has divided Olympus.”          copyright protection3PENANAFWeD71rkeP

            “Actually, we’re on New Olympus.” Herman offered helpfully. “Old Olympus has nothing to do with this. Well that’s not true. Gaia was telling me that the buildings and layout of New Olympus are almost identical…”copyright protection3PENANA68BcCgp3Lc

            “Cool.” Eric interrupted. “Now shut up.”copyright protection3PENANAaGudgazxNG

            “You shut up.” Albany said. “Why don’t you go and play with your sword again.” Sid smiled and giggled quietly. “Not that sword!” Albany said blushing.copyright protection3PENANA6sCk5Klx5z

            “Enough!” Deon shouted standing up. He cleared his throat. “Guys, PG.” He motioned towards Demi. “There are young ears present.” Demi seemingly wasn’t paying attention. She was too busy juggling a tomato, peach, and potato. She could only juggle fruit and veggies. I guess that had something to do with her being the goddess of farmers. Anyway, you should have she her juggle fifteen coconuts.copyright protection3PENANAnbIYokfOo0

            “Focus on the compromise.” Kara said also standing up. “We need to settle our differences. We must have a plan set in place in case Blade attacks.”copyright protection3PENANA1yHvLYGlvt

            “If Blade attacks.” Adele insisted on thinking that he wouldn’t.copyright protection3PENANA1CWEX2piAu

            “No if.” Zack said. “Because we won’t give him a chance. I say we attack that prick right now!”copyright protection3PENANASXGAW4VbTj

            “Yeah!” Eric shouted. “To battle!”copyright protection3PENANAcUSUqDS6Zo

            “No, we need to be certain that this issue is really as serious as you all are making it out to be.” Hector said quietly. Everyone stopped what they were doing to stare at Hector. He never talked in councils like this, unless he was forced to. So when Hector willingly spoke, you knew that something was up.copyright protection3PENANAA00wFXz4g9

            “What do you mean?” Paul asked. “How do we know how serious things are?”copyright protection3PENANAy87eJ3jFec

            Hector shrugged. “We take a trip to Hell. See what things are like down there.”copyright protection3PENANAYr7RlyveEu

            “Hell no.” about five people shouted at once.copyright protection3PENANACeuCL9AkdQ

            “Why would we willingly go to Hell?” I asked.copyright protection3PENANAuMZB1JEkoT

            “Heck!” Deon corrected pointing to Demi.copyright protection3PENANAxnkFeGdJUS

            Hector didn’t have an answer for that. “Guys, I don’t think any of us should go to…heck.” Adele said glancing at Demi.copyright protection3PENANAdw7I9TRKe5

            “Yeah!” Demi shouted as she balanced the peach on her nose.copyright protection3PENANABISBkTkZeJ

            “Uh, ok. Anyways Blade wouldn’t take it kindly if we just showed up in his…home.” Adele continued. “He wouldn’t just tell us that he’s going to attack us, I mean why would he?”copyright protection3PENANASM6drlUF5O

            “She’s right.” Deon said. “It would be a pointless and stupid waste of time. Not to mention we’d be in…down there.” He said censoring himself.copyright protection3PENANAxilE1vxTfL

            “Yes, but we still need to be sure of how Blade is reacting to all this.” Paul said. “I mean we need to take a trip down under and see for ourselves.”copyright protection3PENANAYQuRrOKMNY

            “No, we could have someone else do it.” Herman said.copyright protection3PENANAvGKCUbYOR3

            “I know we’re gods, but we can’t just send innocent people to Hell.” Albany said. “No matter how much we hate them.”copyright protection3PENANADomY3ntBgI

            “Not like that at all.” Herman said. “We just need a minor god to go down there and see what’s up. He can even pretend to want to join Blade, IF Blade is against us.” He said looking at Adele. “IF.”copyright protection3PENANAnfzR61GRNu

            “Thank you.” She said.copyright protection3PENANAPjazW5LUUC

            “Yeah, someone who we know is loyal to us. But not so loyal that Blade will question them being there.” I said thinking. “Nyx.” I suggested.copyright protection3PENANAYx1kw4IZFZ

            “No, Nyx is so not going down there.” Albany said. “Her and Thanatos together, not good at all.”copyright protection3PENANAI2fiUljBc6

            “Why.” I asked.copyright protection3PENANA52qgCmlohf

            “Because Nyx and Thanatos used to date!” Albany said. “That would be very awkward for the two of them.”copyright protection3PENANA1fN2zj6hjM

            “Nyx and Thanatos dated!” Herman shouted.copyright protection3PENANAh1PwjKRDl4

            “Focus! Guys come on, let’s compromise.” Kara said trying to rein them in.copyright protection3PENANAKq7aGJw28N

            “Of course they dated!” Albany said. “Night and death, kind of related. Who do you think taught Thanatos his little shadow teleport trick?”copyright protection3PENANAi935bCoiUI

            “How do you know all this?” Deon asked.copyright protection3PENANA4bJUH3EzH0

            Albany looked at him strangely. “Goddess of love. I know everything regarding everyone’s love life.” She laughed. “Everything.” Right then everyone was blushing.copyright protection3PENANAErqMB7w89E

            “Moving on.” Kara said quickly. It might have been my imagination, but Kara might have glanced nervously between Zack and Albany. “So not Nyx, who then?”copyright protection3PENANAWsNZxYCWgw

            “Gaia?” Eric offered.copyright protection3PENANAElIogqsV09

            “No, nobody would believe that’d she would betray us.” Albany said.copyright protection3PENANAVFAmrctXkD

            “I think we can agree that it can’t be Nyx, Gaia, Pan, or Hestia.” I said. “They brought us here, they wouldn’t betray us. We need someone that isn’t well known.”copyright protection3PENANACg5pgDnSzE

            “Adele, you’re into the old Greek Myths.” Eric said. I was surprised to see that he seemed to be supporting this idea. “Any recommendations?” I was also surprised he used a word with that many syllables.copyright protection3PENANApe08Dgz5bA

            “Well, let me think.” Adele said brushing her hair out of her face. “Someone not well known? Iris.” She suggested. “The rainbow goddess, Iris should be loyal to Olympus, yet not so openly loyal that Blade would question her wanting to join him.”copyright protection3PENANAe6fPtH1WFm

            “The rainbow goddess?” I asked skeptically.copyright protection3PENANAAhDGGTj4MT

            “If I were Blade my question wouldn’t be whose side Iris was one, but rather why the rainbow goddess wanted to join a war.” Herman said. “I mean really, the rainbow goddess?”copyright protection3PENANAIc8JkLZUQa

            “Iris would be a good choice.” Deon said supportively. “I say we see what Iris thinks about this.”copyright protection3PENANAu5hJVLrWH6

            “Any other suggestions?” Paul asked. “I mean Iris isn’t out of the running yet, but I’d like a backup.”copyright protection3PENANAiinVY4Pi9B

            “A backup?” Adele said thinking.copyright protection3PENANAcSNkB85A2W

            “Perhaps the butterfly goddess?” Eric suggested cruelly.copyright protection3PENANALw23gXOHTw

            “Shut up guys.” Deon said. “If you’re not going to come up with your own suggestions, then you can’t criticize Adele’s.”copyright protection3PENANANcOb8NgX6p

            “Yeah you guys.” Kara interjected. “We’re trying to reach a compromise here.”copyright protection3PENANAzihnDSvIty

            “I got one!” Adele said. “How about Khione?”copyright protection3PENANAFe5HhlE53y

            “Never heard of them.” Zack said.copyright protection3PENANACRKq3SejQk

            “Better not be the butterfly goddess.” Eric muttered.copyright protection3PENANAJpD0MgTiZm

            “Khione is the goddess of snow.” Adele explained. “She’s not really mentioned a lot in the Myths which could prove helpful to us. The less Blade knows about her, the more likely he is to believe her story.copyright protection3PENANAREAWmSi0Yl

            “So, you want to send the goddess of snow to the fiery depths of Hell?” Herman asked. “Won’t that melt her?”copyright protection3PENANAzAcj1fcgz3

            “Snow goddess and rainbow goddess. Great picks.” Eric muttered.copyright protection3PENANABisejfvcyu

            “Hey!” Kara said. “None of that. These are the only suggestions we have, so get over it. You don’t like it, then you come up with something better. Got it?”copyright protection3PENANAzq99mv2Fw0

            “I say we vote on it.” Deon said. “Who thinks we should send these girls to Hell!”copyright protection3PENANA06BdpDtCT2

            “Whoa, not how this is going down.” Albany said. “We should ask Khione and Iris and they can say yes or no.”copyright protection3PENANAFul8JEoeRX

            “Yes, they will need to volunteer for this task.” Paul agreed.copyright protection3PENANAIqnSzKoCpV

            “It’s not volunteering if we ask them.” I pointed out.copyright protection3PENANADq1eErR73L

            “Whatever, they’ll have the choice to say no.” Paul snapped back at me.copyright protection3PENANAaJfwSYahc1

            “Ok fine. We can see if these girls want to go and spy on Blade for us.” Zack permitted. “Adele, go find them and bring them here.”copyright protection3PENANAeVrCO1mcEM

            “Yes sir.” Adele said running off.”copyright protection3PENANA7hc8wQzoYD

            “Rainbows and snowflakes. They better say no, those goddess wouldn’t stand a chance in Hell.” Eric said cracking his knuckles.copyright protection3PENANA99noFfnQxA
