            Thirteen figures were gathered around a great bonfire in an enclosed room. “I can’t believe they did it. They actually defeated Kronos.”copyright protection4PENANAg8wSMvU5V4

            “Ahem, I seem to believe that Aphrodite was the one who finished him off. Or have you forgotten already my dear family.”copyright protection4PENANAElBbkSm2pj

            “Yes, yes it’s all good and dandy that love prevailed over all, and that wisdom and wine hooked up. But I will not have it forgotten that this boy Blade sacrificed himself for the greater good. I will also have my lieutenant Thanatos’ contribution noted, as well as the children seeking refuge in the Underworld. These must not be forgotten. I move to be reinstated upon Olympus with my own throne and a seat on the council.”copyright protection4PENANAyhs59fA4kv

            “Oh be quiet Hades, or I’ll do you like Zack did.”copyright protection4PENANA8YRKabCwe1

            “The plan worked. Granted a few bumps and unforeseen challenges, but the plan actually worked. How do you do it?”copyright protection4PENANAQauCuw23V4

            “Brain over brawn.”copyright protection4PENANAnulPzv59Ap

            “You wanna test that theory?”copyright protection4PENANAFIoxszI55X

            “Of course you’d be looking for a fight. Kronos has fallen and the future of Olympus has been secured. I bet you’d love nothing more than a new enemy and a new war.”copyright protection4PENANA7V7ByB8BE3

            “Are you insulting me?”copyright protection4PENANAF1y0R7wXh6

            “SILENCE.” The figures bowed their heads and held their tongues, for their king was about to speak. “These mortal replacements…these gods in training if you will. Have they not done all we have desired of them?”copyright protection4PENANAmWPLtikcoq

            “My lord Zeus, they have defended Olympus and defeated your father Kronos.”copyright protection4PENANA9vmh7USfvx

            “I am aware of this.”copyright protection4PENANAjazRbrZHog

            “They have completed their tasks and the plan has succeeded.”copyright protection4PENANAOLdEwHWRUk

            “This is glorious news. Shall we return again? I yearn to be on my throne once more.”copyright protection4PENANAi4QElXyed3

            “Well…”copyright protection4PENANALwelnpMm7b

            “What is it?”copyright protection4PENANADWWQAtxxlr

            “I…I believe that…”copyright protection4PENANARDwHhRFP5S

            “Do you not think they have overstayed their welcome? Do you not wish for us to rule again?”copyright protection4PENANATRo7cMxZ9F

            “That is just it.”copyright protection4PENANAaMB7DbAbIV

            “What do you mean?”copyright protection4PENANADAy9iQ0XF6

            “I do wish to be a goddess once more. And I speak for everyone here I believe when I say that. I believe we all want to rule atop Mount Olympus once more.”copyright protection4PENANAQzYfHb2fbb

            “Then why do you hesitate? We should descend on these mortals and force them back from whence they came! They have completed their task, now we must take back what is ours.”copyright protection4PENANAUlYvtCH3Nq

            “No.”copyright protection4PENANAZq0xAjnBh3

            “No?”copyright protection4PENANAI7DGmkSoz3

            “We wish to rule again, not for the world’s betterment, but our own. For selfish reasons we would see ourselves once again atop Olympus.”copyright protection4PENANAAupz0SbIVY

            “You dare to say these mortals deserve to be gods over us?”copyright protection4PENANA8Vp9s0sQBJ

            “These gods in training, these mortals…these children, did something we had never been able to do. They saved the world.”copyright protection4PENANAUjQx0dSSCs

            “And that makes them deserve…”copyright protection4PENANAWdXlMXdXF9

            “None deserve to be a god! You do not earn god status, it is given to you. Watching these mortals discover themselves in this crisis has taught me many things. One is, the people are not the servants of the gods, but rather the gods are the servants of the people. Gods should have their people’s best interest at heart. A god should defend and protect his charges, not terrorize and loom over. He should better his people and aid them in bettering themselves. These humans saw that before I ever did. In all of our eons of arrogance and ignorance, did we ever help a single soul? How many lives did we save? How many people did we help? How many did we hurt? How many were smite down by us because they showed greatness? How many were killed due to our jealousy or anger? The Titans were tyrants to us, we replaced them. And now the tyrants are being replaced once again.”copyright protection4PENANAWO4mXxnpoY

            “We were gods!”copyright protection4PENANA9ii0QjdJbQ

            “No longer.”copyright protection4PENANAb838tQ6HOM

            “You would throw the past away?”copyright protection4PENANARKAV7xtuXR

            “No I am protecting the future.”copyright protection4PENANAt6aM615kKh

            “We are the future.”copyright protection4PENANAaWpe5S5bAT

            “We are ancient names and stone statues. We are crumbling temples, and half forgotten stories. No…I do not believe that we are the future, rather we shall step aside and allow time to move beyond us. It is for the best. It is for the greater good.”copyright protection4PENANAXrExmL5Qg2

            “You believe we should die? You believe we should just fade into the mist of memory and disappear altogether?”copyright protection4PENANAIJ8SvfUAzE

            “The humans no longer build shrines to us, they do not pray to us anymore. They have already moved past us. Allowing the world to do so as well will only be a benefit. It would be a kindness. We died long ago.”copyright protection4PENANASKAhZGa4RK

            “Gods never die…”copyright protection4PENANAXPbBmynroD

         My eyes opened slowly. I was confused at first, but then memories returned. I looked around. We were on Olympus again, in the throne room. I counted thirteen chairs including my own. All were full. All were well.copyright protection4PENANAylb9DaPNeH
