                  It was bad enough we were sending two people to Hell as spies, let alone a little girl. You should’ve seen the faces on the others when Khione walked in.copyright protection17PENANAhLSSzT0sjd

            “You want this girl to go to Hell?” Paul asked pointing at Khione. “Should we send Demi too? Or how about some babies?”copyright protection17PENANA6SCLC7zPR1

            Eric actually laughed. “No way!” he punched his throne. “This just keeps getting better and better!”copyright protection17PENANAJKpYKaRyxL

            “This isn’t what I had in mind when I said I wanted a compromise.” Kara said looking at the two goddesses skeptically. “I pictured this differently.”copyright protection17PENANAvPxoI6hIzB

            “Hey, don’t count them out yet!” Albany shouted sounding determined. “I went into this thinking the same things we are thinking now, but then I met Iris and Khione. They’re two tough goddeses. I’m confident that they can get the job done. They must be pretty confident themselves seeing as they both volunteered for this.”copyright protection17PENANAVFuyr7G0Wy

            This little fact sent ripples through the room. The rainbow goddess and a little girl had volunteered to go to Hell and determine if the Lord of Death was planning a war with New Olympus. They made us, the twelve most powerful teenagers in the world, look like cowards.copyright protection17PENANA2FirE3CvCa

            “They volunteered?” Artie asked. “Really?”copyright protection17PENANAh7ZPwHWOqv

            “They did.” Adele confirmed. “I mean we asked them, but they had the choice to walk away.”copyright protection17PENANApmbUVD1BDX

            “Did they understand how serious this is?” Herman asked looking at Khione. “I mean did you explain that this isn’t a joke?”copyright protection17PENANA9GDs8hwLN8

            “Even I know what’s going on!” Demi shouted.copyright protection17PENANAV5gUVMCRA3

            “They volunteered.” Hector pointed out. “They can go if they want.”copyright protection17PENANAm0pyUkbWWP

            “Blade will think I’m a weakling.” Zack muttered shaking his head. “Sending girls to do my work, young girls at that!”copyright protection17PENANAU5vxyEP4pD

            “Thank you Lord Zeus for not mentioning that I’m the rainbow goddess. I’m trying to live that down currently.” Iris said bowing.copyright protection17PENANAclJsfEfSvQ

            “What’s wrong with girls?” Adele asked, kind of defensive. “Girls can do anything guys can do!”copyright protection17PENANAVSQkqLFBIB

            “That’s not true.” I muttered. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for equality and an end to sexism. But that statement just wasn’t true. “Biologically speaking. When’s the last time a girl has fathered a child? Everything else is pretty much the same I think.”copyright protection17PENANAqCHWagBZk0

            “Or won a NASCAR race?” Eric added.copyright protection17PENANADxlmZB0fuv

            “Or become president?” Herman contributed his voice. “Girls are equal, but not able to do the same things.”copyright protection17PENANA5pnWKOIqpq

            “Pigs!” Adele muttered sounding disgusted.copyright protection17PENANA2Q3KNd0ock

            “Girls can do things guys can’t do!” Artie shouted.copyright protection17PENANAoPRKcRmc7Q

            “People! We’re getting off topic!” Kara shouted. “Let’s debate this later. Now though, I say we vote on whether these ladies can go to Hell.”copyright protection17PENANAIcg690USrk

            “Seconded!” Sid shouted.copyright protection17PENANAjtamdXzdmM

            “You don’t have to second it. That’s what we’re already doing.” Paul muttered. “Besides, how did you know to say that?”copyright protection17PENANAyKBpvOhR0o

            “I’m not as stupid as you all make me out to be.” Sid said shrugging. “I do enjoy the presence of a brain in my cranium.”copyright protection17PENANAHJBXQKYKDq

            “Big words.” Paul muttered nodding happily. “He’s not a total loss.”copyright protection17PENANA5WTgi6eRkA

            “Back on topic!” Kara shouted. “Voting, now. All in favor of Iris and Khione going to the Underworld on a scouting mission to determine if Hades is plotting against us?”copyright protection17PENANADSlfiQ3zH4

            Sadly, everyone voted to send these women to Hell. Personally I felt bad since Khione was so young, but she had volunteered. And Iris, well Iris had a look in her eye that reminded me of Eric on an angry day.copyright protection17PENANAXpOynEimoV

            “Wow, I had thought someone would feel bad about this.” Kara thought out loud as she realized that we had unanimously voted to let them go to the Underworld. “Well, Iris and Khione, looks like you’re going to Hell.”copyright protection17PENANAMuSFKaMY17

            “I’ll get to see Waddles!” Khione muttered quite loudly to herself. “I will bring you back my penguin!” she vowed.copyright protection17PENANAyFZTUhKYQr

            “Thank you for this opportunity.” Iris said bowing to each of us in turn. “I will not let you down.”copyright protection17PENANA3NRRmevEBU

            “Thank you.” Zack said. “Now go, report back once you are sure of the situation.” He dismissed them with a wave of his hand. “This is all unnecessary.  Blade spit in my face, he won’t he making macaroni faces down there. I know he will be preparing for war.”copyright protection17PENANAAnot38DQ7F

            “Well thankfully you don’t get to decide.” Albany said. “Iris and Khione will just allow us to know all the facts before we charge into this dangerous situation.”copyright protection17PENANAXFkWzfeje4

            “How do we know that Blade will let them join him?” I asked. “I mean if I were that weirdo and I heard that the rainbow goddess and a little girl wanted to join me I’d make sure that they got the wrong address.”copyright protection17PENANALhSC8eRETs

            “Deon is right.” Eric muttered. “Nobody will be convinced that the little girl wants to join a war.”copyright protection17PENANAyuQXXT5AJc

            “You know guys, none of this helps now.” Kara pointed out. “We already sent them down under.”copyright protection17PENANAgGSBDsQRM5

            “G’day mate!” Sid shouted in his best Crocodile Hunter voice. Paul and Artie both face palmed.copyright protection17PENANAWxmOav319W

            “And there goes my hope for him.” Paul said shaking her head. “I’m surprised it lasted even that long.”copyright protection17PENANAuIrkFoeLZY

            “Are we done here?” Herman asked. “I got some godly things to do.”copyright protection17PENANAYfFRQijHa5

            “No you don’t!” Kara exclaimed. “You just sit around all day!”copyright protection17PENANAM6C9VMFYOO

            “Even if he doesn’t have anything to do, I do.” Zack muttered. “And I’m Zeus, so we do what I say.”copyright protection17PENANAVixmDcKSYK

            “No.” Albany muttered shaking her head in complaint. “Not true.”copyright protection17PENANAQW0wNRP6yZ

            “I’m leaving anyway.” Zack said. “Tell me when those two get back.” Zack made his way out of the throne room. Once the king was gone, the rest of us decided to pack it up as well.copyright protection17PENANAcl6Pu1C9Zq

            “Come on, let’s go.” Adele said to me. “I need to get out of this room.” I got up and followed the wisdom goddess out with Demi close on my heels. I was partial to the little girl, but she kind of ruined my already tattered image on New Olympus. I mean I was already the grape dude what an awesome thing to be a god over, grapes. In the council room I ranked above Sid, the moron, and Hector, the mute, at least in my books. With blessed little Demi tagging along behind me everywhere I went it just completed the puzzle of me being a poor excuse of a god. The others New Olympians usually just ignored me, but not Adele. I guess that’s because we had come here together. Anyway, at least somebody knew who I was.copyright protection17PENANAYUJwhnJ1fH

            “Do you think that they will be okay?” I asked Adele.copyright protection17PENANAM6DMCqDrxc

            “I don’t know, but if something happens to them I would just feel so terrible.” Adele shivered. “What if the Underworld ruins a sweet little girl like Khione? I would never forgive myself.”copyright protection17PENANArKxxz2ybcy

            “It’s not your fault.” I said trying my best to be cheerful. “They willingly went. Nothing would ever make them blame you.”copyright protection17PENANACbtlHKJqMZ

            “I know, it’s just…” She stopped talking and took several deep breaths. “Deon, I’ve got a bad feeling. A really bad feeling, not about Iris and Khione, but something darker, bigger, and worse.”copyright protection17PENANA7y5LlIcYaJ

            “Like what?” I asked confused. Adele was the goddess of wisdom,  I wouldn’t have been on the same level as her intellectually even if we were still mortals. But even I knew that gods don’t just get bad feelings and not have something come from them.”copyright protection17PENANAbBuI93LIeX

            “I don’t know. But there might be someone that does.” She said gazing off into the distant. Another thing about the goddess of wisdom, she not only knew things, but she knew the ancient myths and stories too.copyright protection17PENANAgQ8KcPuWgh

            “Who?” I asked.copyright protection17PENANAVnQ18bKkaU

            “Who…who?” Demi mocked me. “Owl time…who?”copyright protection17PENANA4lwy4GCPoR

            “Owls can twist their heads all the way around.” I told the young girl. “Can you?”copyright protection17PENANAMFHVpUKUQ0

            “All the way around?” Demi asked her eyes extremely wide.copyright protection17PENANAbMo2NxdxSn

            “All the way.” I confirmed.copyright protection17PENANAsXJYwNE8C3

            “No way!” Demi shouted. “I don’t believe you, Hestia!” with that Demi ran off to check my facts.copyright protection17PENANAZpIHk8B52s

            “Do you want to go and see the Oracle with me?” Adele asked once she had finished watching Demi run away.copyright protection17PENANA6eeug21uzT

            I wasn’t the goddess of wisdom, but I knew who the Oracle was. The legendary woman that could foretell the future, I mean who didn’t know that? I also knew that the future could be dangerous to deal with. But I was a god, so I should be covered. “Of course. Where is she?”copyright protection17PENANAS1RB0npFv2

            Adele shrugged. “Probably somewhere near here? We’ll just have to find her.”copyright protection17PENANAIvrrcLzOQC

            “Sounds like a plan.” I said smiling. So we started looking. By looking, I actually mean walking around pointlessly hoping for a miracle. Being a god doesn’t help your chances in getting a miracle, because we had no luck in finding this Oracle.copyright protection17PENANAhXRvr7ytC7

            “Where could she be?” Adele asked after we had searched what had seemed like the entire mountain city.copyright protection17PENANAnu9e6aBvQ7

            “Maybe we should ask someone.” I suggested. “Otherwise we won’t find her like this.”copyright protection17PENANAxzCZ0OKADB

            “I guess we can.” Adele muttered dejectedly. “What if the Oracle’s not on New Olympus? What if she still lived in Greece?”copyright protection17PENANAcUy3q0bYtO

            “We’re gods.” I said shrugging. “Then we’ll go to Greece.” Adele smiled and nodded. “Come on, let’s go ask that guy.” I said. That guy turned out to be Hercules, our doorman.copyright protection17PENANA6Rig5pqHUg

            “Hey Hercules.” Adele said when we saw who it was. “How’s it going?”copyright protection17PENANAPsQrrQgcrT

            “Lady Athena. Lord Dionysus.” Hercules bowed to us. “What makes you come and visit me?”copyright protection17PENANAOENnIdoUcS

            “Oh, we were just looking for the Oracle. Could you tell us where to find her?” Adele said amiably.copyright protection17PENANAIiJ0yPqZwl

            “The Oracle?” Hercules muttered to himself. “What business do you have with her? I would warn you not to seek her out. The future is a dangerous thing to deal with. The Oracle has a habit of telling you things that you shouldn’t know. And knowing those things makes you go crazy.”copyright protection17PENANAglN6NfX3so

            “So you’re not going to tell us where to find her then?” Adele asked.copyright protection17PENANAXh2KELY2Fa

            “The Oracle is a dangerous woman, I would say even more dangerous than The Fates, and I hate those three hags.” Hercules said. “Please, do not seek out the Oracle my friends. Trust me. You’ll be happy facing the future in the future. Leave it for tomorrow, for tomorrow is when you will deal with it. You do not need to know what is coming, and sometimes it is better not to know.”copyright protection17PENANAUnsEo1tO00

            “Maybe he’s right Adele.” I said. “What if this bad feeling, is just a feeling. Besides the Oracle could show you things that don’t even apply to your question. Let it be.”copyright protection17PENANA9gmXm9djdF

            “Alright.” Adele said after a pause. “Thank you for your wisdom Hercules. Say hello to Hebe for me.”copyright protection17PENANAIaXLVBwUEb

            “I’m sure everything will be fine.” I told her. “Do you want a grape?” I summoned a whole bowl of plump purple grapes and held them out to her. “I guarantee their freshness.”copyright protection17PENANA4zzxeYyHNz
