            “You two need to wait here.” Pan ordered.copyright protection16PENANA7l0dr8wAIG

            “That’s the guy?” Paul asked pointing to a lone boy swimming in his backyard pool.copyright protection16PENANAAtwKVjZ68h

            “It’s one of them.” Pan muttered.copyright protection16PENANAW5tZaxXRMN

            “One of them?” I asked.copyright protection16PENANALU8M7AUDaC

            “You two are two more of them.” Pan explained. “I was charged with bringing you three in.”copyright protection16PENANAkL6Qv19u8h

            “So he’s going to be a god like us.” I said nodding appreciably. “I wouldn’t mind sending forever with him. He’s got that swimmers body.”copyright protection16PENANAL4nf4xM2py

"Great." Paul muttered. "You don't even know the guy and you already want to spend forever with him?"copyright protection16PENANAPasXWzyRdI

"Little Brother." I said shaking my head. "It's not that I want to spend forever with him, it’s just that no matter what, we will be gods together. And that means we will spend forever together. I'm just taking advantage of that fact.copyright protection16PENANAuxuAnZBxtK

            "Alright, I see what you mean. When we get to New Olympus, I'm going to take advantage of the goddess of love." Paul said smiling.copyright protection16PENANAPfPcuUJgW8

"When you say it like that, you sound like a rapist." I muttered.copyright protection16PENANAPLjiIgSh75

Blushing he hurried added. "I meant that I can go on a date with the goddess of love before you can go on a date with that guy.” he challenged.copyright protection16PENANA0BCub0tNyX

            “Eww gross.” I said.copyright protection16PENANAyncozHijXe

            “What?”copyright protection16PENANAsNZM5I2XZa

            “What if I’m the goddess of love?” I asked.copyright protection16PENANA2ZMFtXGXLe

            That sent a visible shiver down his spine. “I take back the challenge.”copyright protection16PENANAUkB6IbN0vL

            “Eww.” I muttered as an afterthought.copyright protection16PENANAeXzeJEWMCV

            Pan shook his head. “I had to recruit the weird ones.” He walked over to the edge of the pool and knelt near the boy. He showed no signs of wondering why this strange man had walked into his backyard.copyright protection16PENANAWFVIlpG1ms

            “Do you think the kids going to come?” I asked.copyright protection16PENANAfgMRnv2bvy

            “Course he will, who wouldn’t want to be a god?” Paul said.copyright protection16PENANAXKvwYfbU1O

            “Apparently the old Olympians.” I muttered. “Besides we didn’t know we were going to be gods until after we committed.”copyright protection16PENANAQYtMGObnPy

            “Whatever.” Paul said. “I’m still betting that he joins.”copyright protection16PENANAP5PCWc7ZoC

            “How long do you think this will take?” I asked.copyright protection16PENANAxln3Sli4gk

            Paul looked at me. “Do you have somewhere else to be?”copyright protection16PENANAS6jlT0a5nZ

            “No, but…”copyright protection16PENANADd5sP1FX04

            “Then shut up.” He said. After that we just waited quietly. Several minutes passed until finally the boy got out of the pool, dried off, and walked towards us with Pan.copyright protection16PENANAAyqXBiiUnz

            “Sid, I want you to meet Artie and Paul.” Pan said pointing each of us out. Sid did have a swimmers body, his abs made me very self-conscience and his dark tan made his look more like a bronze god, than a Greek one. The perfection ended with his eyes, which were totally bloodshot from the chlorine.copyright protection16PENANAffGyAzyKEW

            “Hey guys.” He said in a deep voice. “You like to swim?”copyright protection16PENANAKh9PKZRqWS

            “No.” Paul said.copyright protection16PENANAuxqVu1eNWB

            “Yeah.” I said excitedly. “You look like you swim a lot.”copyright protection16PENANAmbQ2KrCjcg

            “I do, I live in the pool most times.” Sid said smiling. “I hear you guys are going be gods with me?”copyright protection16PENANAfXypMipEJm

            “Yeah, we’ll be living together forever.” Paul said strangely giving me a sideways look.copyright protection16PENANAweTW9nYnbU

            “Great.” I said faking a smile. I hoped to the gods that I wasn’t the goddess of love. Hey, did I just pray to myself?copyright protection16PENANAYx6PARgcas

            “Come on, the others are probably on their way back by now.” Pan said ushering us along.copyright protection16PENANAtqq1PckeR3

            “How exactly do we get to Olympus?” I asked.copyright protection16PENANABniujrSiP3

            “New Olympus.” Pan corrected me. “And only a god and take you there.”copyright protection16PENANAdOBkDcbUol

            “We’re gods.” I said.copyright protection16PENANAnRLNTB0dQR

            “Not yet.” Pan said. “Not yet.”copyright protection16PENANAhrezVy1NRR

            “You’re a god.” Paul pointed out.copyright protection16PENANAQ4FsojEzd2

            “Good job!” Pan exclaimed. “The rules are different when humans are involved. I have to take you to the others, and then you’ll go as one group.”copyright protection16PENANAVAUHoOio18

            “Others?” Sid asked.copyright protection16PENANAfizuSu3TiU

            “Yeah, the other New Olympians.” Pan said. “Now cone on.”copyright protection16PENANAK8YqBnJfXX

            “Did you know he’s a satyr?” Paul asked Sid as the three of us followed Pan away from Sid’s house.copyright protection16PENANAiSxczW0Sk2

            “That explains the beard.” Sid said nodding.copyright protection16PENANA0Alz4d487m

            “Beard? What do you think a satyr is?” I asked laughing.copyright protection16PENANA2Sv1i6p2lm

            “I don’t actually know.” Sid admitted. “But I think his beard is weird.”copyright protection16PENANAZDfxQPtRHN

            “Don’t you want to bring some clothes or something?” I asked looking back at his house. “I don’t know, maybe say good bye to your parents?”copyright protection16PENANAUHofhttlBA

            “My dad’s in jail.” Sid said. “And I’m wearing the only clothes I’ll need.” He pointed to his swimsuit.copyright protection16PENANAIDtdFMk4OF

            “Pan!” Paul shouted. “Didn’t the ancient Greeks swim naked?”copyright protection16PENANArOjHlawO1e

            “Not on my watch!” Pan shouted turning around. “No, no.” Pan grabbed me by the shoulders and placed as far from Sid as he could get me. “Artie, you’re not allowed to talk to boys.”copyright protection16PENANACVW0betEA5

            “It wasn’t even me! Paul’s the creep.” I complained I turned to Paul and watched as he smiled at me. Then I turned back to Sid. “What about your mom?”copyright protection16PENANAeiJIwouQti

            “That’s the reason Dad’s in jail.” Sid explained ominously.copyright protection16PENANAwV6PCsZ9g1

            “Oh.” I said. That was weird I thought to myself.copyright protection16PENANAoTXkU8yoM8

            “Our Dad…” Paul started to say, but Sid interrupted himcopyright protection16PENANAt1rcJXBdO5

            “Are you two twins?” Sid asked.copyright protection16PENANAwk1DaD5aNm

            “Yes.” I answeredcopyright protection16PENANAbbf9wah5y4

            “Cool.” Sid muttered. “Do you have twin telepathy?”copyright protection16PENANAe25FfPDR2s

            “Maybe.” I said.copyright protection16PENANAWzMXcXBh7p

            “Cool.”copyright protection16PENANADjBTs74KdC

            I shook my head. Maybe the chlorine wasn’t why his eyes were so bloodshot…copyright protection16PENANAOrFU7UJKMM

            “Sid, since your parents aren’t home do you mind if we take their car?” Pan asked. “We got a long way to go.”copyright protection16PENANAcJlZHxXiP4

            “Sure, and you probably won’t have to bring it back.” Sid said. “Dad won’t be driving again for a long time.”copyright protection16PENANAIsojmRrqBE

            “Alright.” Pan said. We went up and all started climbing in Sid’s dad’s car. Pan noticed that Paul was trying to make me sit next to Sid and said. “Artie, why don’t you sit up here with me?”copyright protection16PENANA3q6IkdD3Yp

            “No offense Pan, but I’d rather sit in the back with my sister…and Sid.” Paul said quickly climbing in the car and pushing me in with him.copyright protection16PENANAPb8bbPI88x

            Pan frowned then he looked at Sid. “Hey big guy.” Pan smiled strangely. “You wanna drive?”copyright protection16PENANAdR0BantCN5

            “Cool!” Sid exclaimed. He clambered into the driver’s seat and began examining all the buttons and dials on the dash. “I’ve never driven before!”copyright protection16PENANAhRvnzQBdUA

            Pan groaned. “On second thought, why don’t you take shotgun.” He said pulling Sid out of the car and escorting him to the passenger side.copyright protection16PENANADKLMVWCE5L

            “Pan,” I said, “can you drive with hooves?”copyright protection16PENANAciCdUNAnpo

            “I honestly don’t know.” Pan said. “But I’m betting I’ll do better than this moron.” he said pointing to Sid.copyright protection16PENANAtHfY4PPG2J

            “Look what you caused Paul.” I muttered climbing in the car.copyright protection16PENANAgGt1spY434
