            So, the Underworld isn’t the best place for a date. The burning pits and tormented souls set the wrong tone. But, Adele didn’t seem to mind, and I was just glad she was beside me.copyright protection15PENANARqqu5glIg1

            “So this is the afterlife.” Adele said leaning against the railing. We were on a balcony of Hades palace, just looking out over the fields filled with death.copyright protection15PENANAGuK2LmBiPa

            “Doesn’t make you look forward to dying does it?” I said.copyright protection15PENANAWyF6qMaSfX

            “There are better places in here too.” Adele told me. “In the myths there was a special place for heroes and good people.”copyright protection15PENANAx7nXBteXbu

            “Hmm, maybe we qualify for that.” I said. “Since we were gods and all. That and fighting Kronos.”copyright protection15PENANAYSYJUK6w2V

            “I think that we’ve all learned that being a god doesn’t make you above anyone else.” Adele said. “And Kronos being free is our fault anyways, so defeating him will only get us even again. No Deon, we will have to live better lives.”copyright protection15PENANAHZtm5T9gLp

            “So what are you suggesting?” I asked.copyright protection15PENANAdiwBg74u4g

            She turned towards me and gave me a little smile. “Let’s not think about it too much. I don’t plan on coming here for again for a long while.”copyright protection15PENANAY38XM3HTAK

            I took her hand and pulling her back inside said. “Let’s go and take our mind off of these sad things.”copyright protection15PENANAOhJhEPbN5W

            “What do you have in mind?” Adele asked.copyright protection15PENANAcifJUvRZ0W

            “I need to talk to you guys.” I turned around and saw Albany standing there.copyright protection15PENANAfZ0oWMrEG1

            “Umm, I guess that counts.” I said kind of disappointed.copyright protection15PENANAouj8MXXXL3

            “What do you need amigo?” Adele asked letting go of my hand and walking over to the former love goddess. Leave it to a love goddess to interrupt your love life.copyright protection15PENANAUYlaHgGyfG

            “I need to find Blade and the others.” She said.copyright protection15PENANAuuFuTChkhX

            “We’re looking for Blade too.” I said. “We can help you find him. Do you want revenge for him kidnapping you or something?”copyright protection15PENANAmGsFOeDMco

            “What? Kidnapping?” Albany was shocked. “Blade didn’t kidnap me.”copyright protection15PENANAP6mbg3rWCH

            Adele and I shared a look. “But he attacked Eric and dragged you away with him.” I told her. “It was on the news.”copyright protection15PENANAD7bjC5WUpd

            “No. Blade was cutting Eric out of his handcuffs. He wasn’t attacking him! Blade is on our side now. He’s helping us.” Albany told us. “I need to warn them, not attack them.”copyright protection15PENANASMTkrIz4uL

            “You trust Blade?” Adele asked.copyright protection15PENANAtkSPv9TX6v

            “Yes, I know where he came from, I know what he was. But he has changed.”copyright protection15PENANAEJDQ3fVZ9l

            I wasn’t so sure. “He attacked Olympus. How can we just forgive him?”copyright protection15PENANAc176lzOVEj

            “Because there is no Olympus!” Albany shouted. “Blade is one of the few gods left. He is one of our best hopes.”copyright protection15PENANAG7DzW8IQ6P

            “I’m feeling less hopeful now.” I said.copyright protection15PENANAmKyZACevBn

            “Deon!” Albany about slapped me. I had never seen her like this before. “You need to stop with this crap. Please take this seriously. I saw Kronos. He can’t be killed by regular people like us. We need a god to defeat him.copyright protection15PENANAQOpXUKxJGb

            “But you said Gaia fought him.” Adele said. “If she couldn’t defeat Kronos, what chance does Blade have?”copyright protection15PENANA2miFWfOE5U

            “A better chance than us.” Albany said.copyright protection15PENANAusE2rfFFKg

            “No, I don’t believe you.” I said defiantly. “This whole time you’ve been preaching that there was a reason the gods picked humans to replace them. Maybe this is the reason.”copyright protection15PENANA3B5szZd6IT

            “This isn’t the reason.” Albany told me.copyright protection15PENANAhLgAqdQfSV

            “Why not?” I demanded. “Why couldn’t this be the reason? We sure as hell didn’t do any good on Olympus. The way I see it, we have some redeeming to do. I believe the reason we were chosen is because we can overcome Kronos. Gods fail where we could succeed.”copyright protection15PENANA9moOpP44vO

            “Deon, I saw him.” Albany said. “We can’t beat him.”copyright protection15PENANAkyqq10pf68

            “No.”copyright protection15PENANA9oTqZkDPzv

            “What do you mean no?” Albany asked.copyright protection15PENANALJR9ygYClt

            “You want to just sit back while the gods get slaughtered by Kronos? I don’t think so. You say that Blade is our best hope, but I think we are his best hope. I think that no one in their right mind gives us a chance against Kronos. And that is why we will win.”copyright protection15PENANArG2R64RvjY

            “I don’t understand.” Adele said looking curiously over me.copyright protection15PENANAEtmxTmSxbr

            “Kronos isn’t even hunting the gods himself. He is having Gaia do it for him. He is so arrogant that he thinks he has won. He doesn’t even bother to leave the Lincoln Memorial.”copyright protection15PENANA2WaU6Ib4kw

            “I assume he leaves to use the restroom.” Albany said.copyright protection15PENANAyMcBDjFvOZ

            “Really?” I demanded. “You interrupted me for that?”copyright protection15PENANAtttQ1mcTTo

            “Please continue.” Adele urged me on.copyright protection15PENANAkWkvRre2vz

            “Anyways.” I glared at Albany. “Why don’t we bring the fight to him. He won’t expect it.”copyright protection15PENANAz4lMFZ5luU

            “What do you suppose we do?” Albany asked. “We aren’t soldiers. You may have fought in a battle, but you fought skeletons that basically died when you looked at them, with Kronos it’s the other way around. We die when he looks at us.”copyright protection15PENANAlXnOOob0i5

            “That gives me an idea!” Adele shouted. “Medusa! We can have Medusa turn Kronos to stone!”copyright protection15PENANAoC1J8TamVG

            “One problem. Medusa doesn’t exist.” Albany said. “Athena, that was you Adele, turned Medusa into that ugly thing or whatever. Zeus is dead, no Zeus equals no Athena, no Athena equals no snake haired lady.”copyright protection15PENANAWvLhhqgnML

            “I was a good idea.” I told Adele.copyright protection15PENANAh8IFWw47xm

            “Speaking of good ideas.” Albany. “Apparently they don’t exist in the Underworld. Are you crazy Deon? We can’t bring the fight to Kronos he’d kill us in an instant.”copyright protection15PENANAcWZeF77Pu3

            “You don’t know that.” I said. “I believe that if we snuck up on him…”copyright protection15PENANAwqzhIRIZev

            “Is Gaia dead?” Adele asked randomly.copyright protection15PENANAKwDtcz0gHx

            “She could be.” Albany said shrugging. “She was my friend, and she saved me. Kronos wouldn’t have spared her life after that. She would have to run away or win to get out of there alive. And Gaia isn’t the running type, and she had no chance of winning.”copyright protection15PENANACUtC99JhZe

            “So she’s dead?” I asked for clarification.copyright protection15PENANAlvFVNnMvn1

            Albany sighed and met my eyes with a sad, somber look. “I think we have to assume that anyone who crosses Kronos is dead.”copyright protection15PENANA07xDBJdB0V

            “So Gaia is…MIA right now, presumed dead. And she was Kronos’ hands and feet. Without her, how will he hunt for us?” We thought it over.copyright protection15PENANA9DQDf0MZhL

            “You don’t think that?” I asked. “I mean he’s not…”copyright protection15PENANAdDhTy4gkAD

            “Kronos must be coming out himself.” Albany finished my thought for me. “He’s coming to kill me.”copyright protection15PENANAmALUenEsYE

            “Kill us more likely.” Adele corrected her. “I think we are all in the same boat here.”copyright protection15PENANAo8ifLxfyxx

            “He can’t know we are here?” I asked. “Can he?” Kronos was a lot less scary when I knew he was safety in Washington D.C., but know…the thought of him bursting through the door and killing everyone was a little unsettling.copyright protection15PENANAjLaBEJGV4g

            “He can figure it out pretty quick I’m betting.” Albany said. “So, now we really need a plan for Kronos.”copyright protection15PENANAzqRlk6IYzG

            “I think this palace would be a good place to make a stand, we can get Hades’ undead to fight with us, maybe we can overwhelm him?” I suggested.copyright protection15PENANADYPVdAts80

            “If you want to kill yourself, you could make it a whole lot easier than that.” Albany did smack me this time. “That’s a recipe for disaster!”copyright protection15PENANAZsMa4qTKmX

            “I don’t think we should fight Kronos.” Adele said.copyright protection15PENANA1VoTgI0YGz

            Albany turned on her. “I think become friends is out of the question. Our only option is to fight him.”copyright protection15PENANAFkxufK5Ide

            “Did you hear me say make friendship brackets?” Adele sassed back. “I said we shouldn’t fight him. Not all wars are won on the battlefield.”copyright protection15PENANAJdGvnKVgvi

            “The interesting ones are.” I mumbled.”copyright protection15PENANAewdCqulqt2

            “Take the Trojan War for example.” Adele said.copyright protection15PENANAZ9mxEBiJjv

            “The Greeks slaughtered the Trojans I thought. That doesn’t count as a battlefield?” Albany said slowly.copyright protection15PENANAX2IEy5otmU

            “The Trojan Horse didn’t fight on the battlefield, and that was why the Greeks were able to slaughter and burn the city.” Adele instructed. “Former Goddess of Wisdom speaking here, in the future let me finish my point.”copyright protection15PENANAMBrZeRuzhX

            “Sorry.” Albany said.copyright protection15PENANABh6XOKy7uS

            “So, I still don’t really understand.” I said. “What does this have to do with Kronos?”copyright protection15PENANACrVl5truXO

            “We use a Trojan Horse.” Adele said. “He’s coming for us right?”copyright protection15PENANAoJpQJDHdcZ

            “I don’t know, you’re the Goddess of Wisdom.” Albany said.copyright protection15PENANAaNghK52jcw

            “We need to draw him in. The gods defeated Kronos the first time by tricking him.”copyright protection15PENANAbPY6a3zByw

            “Yeah, Zeus was replaced with a rock and then chopped us his dad.” Albany said.copyright protection15PENANAqXgPNZtvcF

            “Wouldn’t a rock and a baby look different?” I asked.copyright protection15PENANAuntLEeQGx3

            “Maybe Zeus was an ugly baby?” Albany said. “Zack was an ugly person.”copyright protection15PENANAdJSbP3fpFN

            “True…but they would taste different. Kronos had to be really stupid to not notice.”copyright protection15PENANAW5LcVybo4o

            “I wouldn’t know, I’ve never eaten a rock.” Albany said smiling wickedly.copyright protection15PENANA4yLxkqLa7j

            “SOOO.” Adele interrupted. “As we had been SERIOUSLY discussing. The only logical way to defeat Kronos is to trick him.”copyright protection15PENANAek27wSbLhQ

            “Trick him how?” I asked. “I mean, what kind of prank will save the world.”copyright protection15PENANAzeWkrRTCfX

            “Somehow we need to trick him into not killing Zeus.” Adele said.copyright protection15PENANA1jwMQQdC1l

            “We could send him to child counseling. There’s a good seminar called Parenthood 101 at my local rec-center. I think one of the topics is going to be Don’t Eat Your Children.” I suggested, and was ignored.copyright protection15PENANAVfGYncQyX8

            “We can’t just kill him is what you’re saying.” Albany said thinking things over. “Killing Kronos will still leave us with no Olympus and Gods.”copyright protection15PENANApxmlRNcLqs

            “Yes, we have to get Kronos to not kill Zeus.” Adele said.copyright protection15PENANAIrLfeC5sf7

            “That shouldn’t be too hard.” I said.copyright protection15PENANANant9KGZjE

            Adele gasped. “That could work!”copyright protection15PENANA8Ibv33jgOJ

            “What?” Albany asked.copyright protection15PENANAIxbuMq6STm

            “Oh my Zeus! I have an idea!” Adele said. “I need Blade’s help, like now.”copyright protection15PENANAZGxmaG6QGq
