            My stunt with Eric and the jail seemed to work out. Like I had predicted it actually helped us. Artie and Paul found their way to us the very next day. They had seen us on the local news and remembered everything. Granted at first they were trying to rescue the others from my ‘mind control’. But once we convinced them that I was a changed man now. Things worked out ok. Hector knew who we were when we showed up to get him, and he even said that the only reason he hadn’t come looking for us was because he was scheduled to work. Things were looking up for us.copyright protection4PENANA9l7ZCyHHS7

            “See I told you it was a good idea.” I was telling Albany. “You were worried for nothing.” Our group was spending the night at her freaking huge mansion. We were planning on looking for the others in the morning.copyright protection4PENANA7kGzMj883s

            “This isn’t over.” She informed me. “Bad things could still happen. I think that Kronos could be on his way right now.”copyright protection4PENANALyA51rJepy

            I saw no substance to support her worries. “Well then thank Zeus that your windows lock.” I laughed. “Come on Albany. Do you really think Kronos watches the news?”copyright protection4PENANAkyTsyw0geT

            She frowned. “I guess not. But I still think that was too risky.” We were walking together towards the dining room. While she had convinced the other gods to not kill me, Albany still thought it best to keep me as far away from them as possible. “After you sir.” She said opening the door and bowing.copyright protection4PENANAole4U0n38r

            “Why thank you.” I smiled walking in. “Hello everyone.” I wasn’t normally a cheery person. But I had decided to put on my happy face for the others. Maybe that would earn their trust.copyright protection4PENANAvTZ6Z1yJfX

            “Hey.” Eric was the only to respond. Once he decided I wasn’t an enemy, he realized it was pretty cool that I had come back from the dead. “What’s up Death?”copyright protection4PENANAhAwb24H2kV

            I sat down at the table and grabbed a roll. “Just chilling killing.” I said with a smile on my face.copyright protection4PENANAWIhaNbbafk

            Eric laughed rather loudly. “He’s the god of death, and he said he was chilling KILLING!”copyright protection4PENANABKeBRdCpXS

            “Yeah.” Paul muttered. “But he’s not Hades anymore. None of us are gods anymore.”copyright protection4PENANAmfsTquX8xi

            “Paul!” Artie pushed him. “We’re alive. The gods aren’t. This is one of those times that being human is better than being a god.” Paul frowned, but didn’t say anything. He wasn’t the only one that seemed really upset to be human again.copyright protection4PENANA4t1lEOxPZN

            “Who are we looking for next?” Albany asked sitting across from me. “Who do we go after next?”copyright protection4PENANA9ByncpBPOy

            “Well Artie and I picked up Sid with Pan the first time, so we can go there next.” Paul suggested. I could probably figure out how to get there. He was probably swimming or something when the news showed you guys.”copyright protection4PENANAHbN94eE2nb

            “Yeah, that or he just didn’t know where to find you.” Artie added.copyright protection4PENANAlsFmNjbl9b

            “Sounds good. We will find Sid in the morning.” Albany stated. “Now, I know that I’m the only one that really cares, but what are we going to do about Kronos?”copyright protection4PENANA8iMHGZ6iOV

            “We all care.” I told her. “We just are waiting to get more of us before we do anything.” Albany was insistent on making a plan to fight Kronos. I however was dreading that moment. I had met the Titan. I had been held frozen in time while he bragged about what he would do. I was afraid of him.copyright protection4PENANARv6EFaTjdg

            “But we still will need to have some sort of plan for when we do fight him.” Albany persisted. “We need to fix this. The gods should be in charge.”copyright protection4PENANAvyIaVwu7SD

            “The gods are dead.” Paul reminded her. “Remember? That’s why we’re not on Olympus right now.”copyright protection4PENANAi1W5IC4PVT

            “Paul!” Artie scolded him again.copyright protection4PENANAKMpQr41koe

            “We will find a way.” Albany said confidently.copyright protection4PENANABUMk5IRzPK

            “Miss Albany?” Baxter the butler entered the room.copyright protection4PENANAc7M9cuMgkH

            “Yes, Baxter?” Albany turned to him.copyright protection4PENANAa4tzVVDWf2

            “Someone at the door for you.” He said.copyright protection4PENANAbRWXc1F4Bv

            “Who is it?” Albany asked standing up.copyright protection4PENANAOOCAXP5J6p

            “There are three people, and none gave me a name.” Baxter replied.copyright protection4PENANArguUPpPsl5

            “That’s weird.” Albany hurried from the room with Baxter following behind her.copyright protection4PENANAvwXsu9uae5

            “Did you order a pizza again?” I asked Eric.copyright protection4PENANAF2TiDR7JAd

            “NO!” He said defensively. “That was one time, before I knew that food would be prepared for us. Let it go.”copyright protection4PENANA82tCWi2MLn

            “Why would three people deliver a pizza?” Paul said turning to me. “That wouldn’t make sense.”copyright protection4PENANASgUPJpZdAe

            “Have you seen him eat?” I retorted pointing at Eric, who currently had his mouth stuffed with potato chips. “They would need three people to just to carry that pizza.”copyright protection4PENANAiggcyU3GDE

            “I may not be the war god anymore, but I can still stab you.” Eric said showing me a rather wimpy looking butter knife.copyright protection4PENANAUMGnoDGqqs

            “Put the plastic knife down.” Artie muttered. “No one cares.”copyright protection4PENANAOiIJ8s98FJ

            “I ain’t afraid to stab a woman.” He muttered threatening to her. Paul and Artie stood up and picked up their bows, which were leaning against the wall.copyright protection4PENANAmY0Dazxefb

            “You aren’t nearly as tough as Ares was.” Artie warned him.copyright protection4PENANAT9XAxmddME

            “But both of us are still just as accurate with these.” Paul finished his sisters thought as they both simultaneously drew their bows. The arrowheads were unwaveringly pointed at each of Eric’s eyes. I knew what it felt like to stare down those shafts. The twins had greeted me in much the same way when they first arrived.copyright protection4PENANAFBXol5Quew

            Eric dropped the knife. The twins fired their arrows into the wall, making sure he felt their breeze as they blew by him. “I swear, if there weren’t two of you...” He muttered quietly.copyright protection4PENANAeBueeENMT3

            “You’d what?” Artie asked him. “Huh? What would you do?”copyright protection4PENANAXMdUmKgAY3

            Eric picked up his knife again and with his other hand grabbed a napkin. It wasn’t the best weapon choice. But it was the napkin or me. “You wanna find out?” Erics jumped on top of the table, spilling Hector’s soup.copyright protection4PENANAfEFc30iUvw

            “It was getting cold anyways.” Hector sighed sitting back.copyright protection4PENANAqJ7UXmzL8s

            “Sit down.” Artie ordered, but she and her brother’s bows stayed trained on Eric’s head.copyright protection4PENANAO6f11CMicK

            “I don’t take orders from a goddess.” Eric sneered at her.copyright protection4PENANAlso1Es2Wmx

            “I’ll make you a goddess!” Artie shouted. Her aim dropped from Eric’s eye down to the junction of his legs.copyright protection4PENANAtMgBHeXgZ6

            Paul turned to his sister. “I know he’s a jerk, but come on sis. That’s just uncalled for.”copyright protection4PENANAJOdYQeACwN

            “You want to be next?” She asked angrily. “Cause I can make that happen!”copyright protection4PENANAnSfMTTeVQA

            Eric would rather lose his dignity than his manhood and he wisely stepped down from the table. The twins were on the ends of their ropes ever since they got here. Partly because they didn’t fully trust me, and partly because Eric was constantly picking fights with them.copyright protection4PENANAskmJV3XTkX

            “Look what the cat dragged in!” Albany returned ushering in our guests. It was Herman, Nyx, and Pan.copyright protection4PENANA03Ld1CsCeY

            “Pan!” The twins put down their bows and hugged the satyr.copyright protection4PENANApBRFoLzCGp

            “Hey Herman.” Hector said.copyright protection4PENANAd9KATGEQzY

            “Lord Hades.” Nyx bowed before me. The room got real quiet. Everyone was looking at me.copyright protection4PENANAOA1AO3cgGq

            “No, I’m just Blade now. None of us are gods anymore.” I told her.copyright protection4PENANAf526LrRk3y

            “None of them are gods anymore.” Nyx corrected me. “You, son of Kronos, are still Hades.” Now the room was really silent.copyright protection4PENANAKgIuRBavsK

            “But Hades died in Atlantis. He died with all of the children of Kronos.” I said. I knew it was true, I had read it on the internet.copyright protection4PENANAthkvR9z3pf

            “The gods did not die with Atlantis. They escaped the sinking city. Kronos believed that he had killed them, but he did not.” Pan explained. “We were there kid. We know.”copyright protection4PENANAuFlwM6XEr1

            “What?” Artie asked. “He’s still a god.”copyright protection4PENANAcbiVG9xRE0

            “All the children of Kronos are still gods.” Nyx said. “Except of course Zeus. He actually died.”copyright protection4PENANAB8hWE85dcv

            “Are you still gods?” Hector asked the two adults.copyright protection4PENANAtGaOdWVbBn

            “Yes. We don’t owe our godly ascension to Zeus, so we remained when he died.” Nyx explained. “We are still gods, and there are a few others.”copyright protection4PENANAdNyvJfFh6k

            “So are Kara and Sid and the other children of Kronos still gods?” Albany asked. “Because this totally changes how we should plan for Kronos.”copyright protection4PENANAhHszE6HKkU

            “We don’t have a plan for Kronos.” Artie reminded her.copyright protection4PENANAfNAqCNnyZY

            “What others are there?” I asked.copyright protection4PENANAVcMtHvInMP

            “Not many.” Pan admitted. “The gods are still at war with the Titans. Whenever they find one of us…” He slid his finger across his neck.copyright protection4PENANAH4waDbglVB

            “Many were killed long ago. Even more stopped being gods, they gave up.” Nyx went on to explain. “We have not tasted happiness or hope for a long time.”copyright protection4PENANAfaoQB1EYzD

            “What about the Olympians. The old Hades and Poseidon? Did they not try to stop Kronos?” Albany asked.copyright protection4PENANAXuPJYxfHV2

            “I remember that after Atlantis, all of the gods with any sense didn’t show their faces for a few centuries.” Pan said. “Sure there were some attempts to fix this, but none of them worked…obviously.”copyright protection4PENANAwC63MKe359

            “The problem with fighting Kronos is that no one has seen him since Atlantis.” Nyx said. “He doesn’t do anything. We can’t kill him if we don’t know where he is.”copyright protection4PENANAFlk4bV5PTE

            “How does he kill gods if no one sees him?” Paula asked.copyright protection4PENANAtQ8jA7RPOM

            “The other Titans do it for him.” Pan says. “But mainly it’s Gaia.”copyright protection4PENANARkpYncICgN

            Albany’s mouth dropped wide open. “Gaia is on our side! She was mine friend, she wouldn’t kill gods. She was a god…she was a Titan.” Albany seemed to be having a battle in her mind. “I remember that she was originally a Titan but she changed sides.”copyright protection4PENANALV85Zk149U

            “Gaia chose the Titans in favor of the leaderless and floundering gods this time. And she made all the difference.” Nyx said bitterly. “The earth has ears and eyes everywhere. Sooner or later, if she’s looking for you, Gaia will find you…and when she does. Hell hath no fury like Mother Earth.”copyright protection4PENANAJCLSWmZNbN

            “So she could find us here?” Eric asked sounding not as tough as when he was staring down the twins earlier. I knew that he had witnessed a sample of Gaia’s power before. And looking at Albany confirmed it.copyright protection4PENANAz38Y2waK8q

            “Is this house on the Earth?” Pan asked. “Because if it is, then she can find you.”copyright protection4PENANAyTmHZl10qb

            “This changes everything.” Albany muttered. “How do we fight the Earth?”copyright protection4PENANAV9OH1K31xf

            “Global warming.” Herman suggested. “Everyone says that it kills our planet. If we all go and buy SUV’s, maybe we can weaken her by driving around.” Sadly that was the best idea we had, and it was a joke.copyright protection4PENANAP6jX5lug5C

            “Do you think Selene would let us live on the moon with her? She is the moon goddess right?” Hector asked.copyright protection4PENANAHEw3lvomwO

            “Selene and Helios abandoned Earth a long time ago.” Nyx said. “They aren’t coming back. And they aren’t alone.”copyright protection4PENANAyrYm906d1E

            “We could burn down a forest?” Herman suggested again.copyright protection4PENANAsRLLPQ6j7c

            “How can you tell jokes at a time like this?” Artie shouted at him. Get enough Olympians together and shouting will follow shortly.copyright protection4PENANAVOQsRcYfzu

            “Because I’m not as deathly scared when I make fun of all this.” Herman admitted.copyright protection4PENANA47W2t62Aj4
