            “How do you spend your last hour in a world where you know your actions will be erased?” I asked. Adele and I were sitting next to each other on a stone bench. The bench itself wasn’t very comfortable. But Adele’s fingers wrapped around mine removed all stray thoughts like a simple discomfort in my bum. That sentence could be misinterpreted…copyright protection16PENANAHhpJ8qDABb

            Adele smiled at me. “What have you always wanted to do?”copyright protection16PENANAUR4Qu5qjj7

            “So many things, so little time until Albany changes this timeline.” I said. I leaned in real quick and kissed her cheek. “But there is something that I’ve always wanted to do.”copyright protection16PENANAqdWwYAcZI4

            Adele lifted our entwined fingers and kissed the back of my hand. “Just name it.”copyright protection16PENANAeqmE9v5M6G

            “We will require some transportation.” I said standing up and pulling her with me. We walked through the hallways. Me leading her, she, more than willingly, was following. I had no idea where to look, but I knew that I would find him sooner or later. We probably explored five corridors in this undead palace until we found our god.copyright protection16PENANAY0x2R28ims

            “Deon and Adele.” Thanatos said observing us as we entered. He was standing near a bookshelf. It was full of old and yellowing scrolls.copyright protection16PENANAqNFmjEXwDG

            “Are you busy?” I asked.copyright protection16PENANABS6XwftC2z

            “Well seeing as the danger is over…I was just reading the history of this world. Without Zeus things took quite a different turn. Did you know that they call it McDaniel’s here?” Thanatos said turning to and running a hand across the assembled scrolls.copyright protection16PENANAi0AQ3rSbJe

            “So you’re not busy?”copyright protection16PENANAD92jwlXtRB

            He sighed. “No, not really.”copyright protection16PENANA9sugq0vUCx

            “Well, since you’re not doing anything I was wondering if maybe you could take me and Adele somewhere.”copyright protection16PENANAtVy4LBvENf

            “Where do you want to go?” Thanatos asked. He turned back to us and took several steps closer.copyright protection16PENANASrpVKVgIp8

            “Well, I’ve always wanted to see the Northern Lights.”copyright protection16PENANAkzBOP2PlWs

            Thanatos cracked his knuckles. “Very well, close your mouths.”copyright protection16PENANATqnsu83ZMR

            I was just sitting here. Just sitting on the stone floor in this shadowy room. I had no idea where I was. I just wanted to sit here though. I was comfortable here, I felt like I was supposed to be here. And to a man with no memories, I craved a sense of familiarity.copyright protection16PENANAZ6zBUpDJLz

            “Where do I know this from?” I asked myself. I had to ask myself, there was no one else to ask. I had not seen another person my whole time being awake. Until now. I looked down to see a door opening. A boy came in and slowly shut the door behind him. “Who are you? And where am I?”copyright protection16PENANAcEZz6uIauv

            He just smiled at me and began walking towards me. I got a very bad feeling about this. I stood up and tensed. I had a feeling that this boy meant me harm. “Who are you?” I repeated.copyright protection16PENANA1JbkoMnYE9

            “You really don’t remember anything?” he asked.copyright protection16PENANAYEfxfaXSTI

            “No, what happened to me? Where did my memories go?” I demanded. I still had a very bad feeling about this.copyright protection16PENANAs6nsFuWoFq

            “Your name is Blade.” He explained. He was grinning wickedly.copyright protection16PENANATHa51ySoww

            “Blade! Is that even a name?” I shouted.copyright protection16PENANAxuaN2pX0iQ

            “Now we’re on the same page.” The boy practically growled at me.copyright protection16PENANAJKW7cCB90h

            “Do I know you?” I asked looking him over. I couldn’t help but feel that I had seen him before.copyright protection16PENANAzUYK0ZiSoP

            “Let me introduce myself.” He offered me a handshake. I reached out and clasped his hand. As soon as he had a hold of my hand he twisted, hard and fast. My arm bent and I dropped to a knee.copyright protection16PENANAoVjyImYFng

            “Arghhhh!” I cried out. The boy let go of my hand. I tucked my arm in close to my body. I looked up to shout at him but my upturning face was rejected by his fist.copyright protection16PENANAw60tdd6Pm7

“My name is pain BITCH!” the boy shouted. The punch knocked my head into the ground. Dazed and under attack I tried to stand up. A foot connected with my ribs and flipped me over. “That was for starting the war.” He knelt on my chest, careful to press down hard on my ribcage. Using one hand he grasped my neck, forcing me to look at him. Leaving my face exposed to…there it was. A punch that smacked into my nose and cheek. “That was for unleashing Kronos on us.” He swung again, this time my mouth was the recipient of the strike. “That was for everyone that had died because of you.”copyright protection16PENANA6W24G24ZUs

            “Eric! What are you doing?” I heard rapid footsteps. The boy got off me, pushing hard on my gut to raise himself.copyright protection16PENANAOjn8S6vQMS

            “I was just trying to knock his memories back.” My attacker muttered shrugging. Someone knelt next to me and looked into my eyes.copyright protection16PENANA6jY7MckT1H

            “Cal…so.” I muttered closing my eyes.copyright protection16PENANA08E2cl5hk0

            “Great, I think you might have caused brain damage.” The new boy shouted at Eric.copyright protection16PENANAJ8j7gbeL20

            “CALYPSO!” I shouted. I remembered.copyright protection16PENANAE8jDg6PBZR

         She was hugging me. I had my arm around her shoulders. Her head was gently resting on my shoulder. “They really are beautiful.”copyright protection16PENANA7dLqk2CyOE

            “Just like you.” I said kissing her forehead.copyright protection16PENANAzsNS54ZUFY

            “Stop it.” she said playfully pushing me away. “You have to say that.”copyright protection16PENANAMYYLV0Ye7r

            “Only because it’s true.” This time I kissed her on the lips. I liked kissing her. I really did.copyright protection16PENANAQfFCGZEiys

            “Can we go back now?” Thanatos muttered. He was standing right behind us. People never really enjoyed being the third wheel, gods hated it five times worse.copyright protection16PENANAX7UL00PZUu

            “Thanatos, you agreed to take us wherever we wanted until the bright light thingy happened.” I reminded him. “I don’t think we agreed that you could talk.” I jested.copyright protection16PENANAYGtWspWqD4

            “You are mortal now.” Thanatos muttered. “And mortals die, I am death, I can make things happen.” He whispered.copyright protection16PENANASujx60xKj6

            “Thanatos is right.” Adele said pulling away from me. “We should go.”copyright protection16PENANAdge72e7Re2

            “Thank you, I knew you were always wisest.”copyright protection16PENANAmcJP8ce5CS

            “Time to leave here, but not time to go back.” She smiled at me. “I’d love to see the sunset on Paris.”copyright protection16PENANA9vmt3stAcN

            “Good idea.” I said smiling at my lady.copyright protection16PENANAHp4Vx69FYo

            “So cliché.” Thanatos muttered. “I have so much better things I could be doing.”copyright protection16PENANAIkAraIEpOh

            “Don’t you want a break from death?” Adele asked him. “Aren’t you tired of all the gloom and doom? Why don’t you take a break, see the world a little bit.”copyright protection16PENANAhXMDrP5Vqi

            Thanatos frowned. “Have you ever been under the Eiffel Tower?” He gave us his hands. Making sure our mouths were tightly closed, we welcomed the shadows.copyright protection16PENANAI7IM3fTcVR

Albanycopyright protection16PENANAADbb5mUJLI

         “Stay down Miss Albany.” I looked and saw Gaia standing above me. She had saved me from Kronos.copyright protection16PENANA03FMG7CM33

            “No!” I shouted at her. “You were supposed to protect Zeus.”copyright protection16PENANA4LbNye3rqY

            “My friend it is fine. My grandson is in good hands.” She smiled at me. “A shepherd and his wife are watching him for me.”copyright protection16PENANAi1BudHQ7qC

            “Mother!” Kronos screamed. “How dare you attack me?” Gaia gave him no answer, unless you count a rock to the noggin as an answer. Kronos growled at her and came swinging.copyright protection16PENANAPqGvdmDQ9G

            “Not so fast.” Kronos was stopped in his tracks. I looked and saw shadows enveloping his waist and down, he was trapped. A body appeared behind him, a black body with white eyes and hair.copyright protection16PENANATer410i4rJ

            “Nyx.” I said recognizing the goddess. Kronos strained against her shadows, but she held him fast.copyright protection16PENANA3KLFeYm56M

            A loud and strange cry echoed out overhead. Looking over my shoulder I saw a chariot being pulled by a large flaming bird, a phoenix. The man riding the chariot was on fire, no big deal. As I watched he let loose a shot of fire like a flamethrower at Kronos. The Titan roared as the flames enveloped him.copyright protection16PENANAIVdorqL4gU

            Nyx appeared behind Gaia, stepping out of her shadow. “Helios should know that I can’t hold him in those flames. Shadows don’t exist in fires.” She complained.copyright protection16PENANAK99ceacwfE

            “I know friend.” Gaia said. “But we needed all the help we could get.”copyright protection16PENANAgio1XD0jJ6

            I tried to stand up but my legs had been sucked down into the mud. I struggled to pull myself out, but I was distracted. Kronos roared once more and jumped free of the flames. He charged at Gaia and Nyx. Going much faster than before, the fire had dried and harden the mud.copyright protection16PENANA6r2jQtJCy0

            Gaia placed her hand on the ground and pushed. The slope below us gave away. It just crumbled. We were now overlooking a very large cliff.copyright protection16PENANAxjaGvoRIV6

            “I’m glad I’m not fighting you.” Nyx muttered as she melted back into shadows. Gaia stood by me and Helios circled overhead, raining fireballs down into the valley randomly.copyright protection16PENANAnboLdmpdF8

            “You were very brave to stand against Kronos.” Gaia said keeping her eyes focused on the valley below. I could hear Kronos’ roars of rage and the sizzling of Helios’ fire rampaging below.copyright protection16PENANAkLAm5rQO3o

            “I was just doing what I had to.” I said. “I wasn’t brave. I just had nowhere to run to.”copyright protection16PENANAPBIZhen8Wj

            “Without your presence here Kronos would have eaten or even killed my grandson Zeus. You changed that.” Gaia gave me a quick look. “You are very brave Albany.” Our conversation was cut off by a very strange sight. Shadows flying.copyright protection16PENANAfjvD5I0vWG

            Nyx was hurtling through the air, so fast and so high that she collided with Helios’ chariot. And as you know, the sun and shadows do not mix well. The phoenix exploded when Nyx hit it and I lost sight of the two gods in the flames.copyright protection16PENANADgseDxFtmJ

            “Kronos is coming.” Gaia warned. She leaned over the edge to try and see. She saw him alright. She saw him right up until her knocked her out. Kronos jumped up and with a mean uppercut he pounded Gaia out of the way.copyright protection16PENANASbkAaCPyLL

            Looking down and seeing me he grinned. “I am no one’s slave.” I knew he would strike me next, I knew it would be coming. So I went out and met it. I managed to pull my legs free and I pounced. I wasn’t very strong, or very big…but Kronos was close enough to the edge that I didn’t need to move him very far. Really I just had to tip him back a couple of inches. Only a couple of inches. If love could knock people off their feet. If Aphrodite could turn everyone head over heels, then surely Albany could bump one person a few inches. Surely I could get him off that cliff.copyright protection16PENANAR05mEb5EG1

            My eyes were closed. I wouldn’t have been able to jump if they had been open. Kronos and that open void would not have been an inviting target. So I shut my peepers and pretended I was a cheerleader again. All I had to do was jump. That was so much easier than regular cheer moves, so much easier than being a god. All I had to do was jump, and win my few inches.copyright protection16PENANAkkhMyVkeoG

            My hair fluttered around me. Flapping in the wind. I didn’t have to open my eyes. I believe that I won those inches. I could tell.copyright protection16PENANAYhRjS1VHzH

         Paris was beautiful. We got to see the sunset under the Eiffel Tower. Adele and I were just sitting on a bench in the gathering twilight. That’s when it happened. That’s when the sky turned white. BOOM!copyright protection16PENANAUlMc8l7szv

            My ears stung but I called out “SHE DID IT! ALBANY DID IT!” I held Adele close, she was all I could see. The rest of the world was white. And then we heard the second boom.copyright protection16PENANA8yNZRF1NnB
