         “Deon?” Demi said quietly. “Where’s Hestia?”copyright protection17PENANAK9gJs5jcul

            “I told you Demi.” I said. “She’s talking to someone right now. She’s trying to get her to join us.” When I pictured myself as a god, I did not think I’d be babysitting.copyright protection17PENANAWGR1Wzka43

            “Oh.” Demi said. “Why didn’t she take us with her? She took me with her when she talked to you.”copyright protection17PENANARXpxO3NMB8

            “I don’t know Demi.” I said. “Maybe this time it would be harder for her to recruit the girl with us, so she left us her.”copyright protection17PENANAKmh15J6oWB

            “Is she coming back?” Demi asked.copyright protection17PENANAJTiBUeaeof

            “Yeah, why wouldn’t she come back?” I asked surprised by the question.copyright protection17PENANAifcHM1LAOm

            “I don’t know.” Demi muttered. “My mommy never came back.”copyright protection17PENANAIyIZzOJGcF

I was taken aback. How do you respond to something like that? “Don’t worry.” I said. “This time it’s different. Hestia won’t leave us.”copyright protection17PENANAhWzAxtOIId

“Ok.” Demi said. We sat in silence after that. Me not knowing anything to say, and Demi busy playing with a stray cat. Maybe ten minutes pasted before Hestia showed up again, and she wasn’t alone.copyright protection17PENANAX0saIfctQ0

“May I present Adele.” Hestia said. “Adele, this is Deon, and that is Demi. They’re like you.”copyright protection17PENANAQyzzy8nhPA

Adele had long brown hair tied in a braid that went across the top of her forehead, around down the side of her head and hung swaying in front of her shoulder. I looked up and saw she had bright blue eyes that caught the sun perfectly.copyright protection17PENANAX7wxH40wMJ

“Hey.” She said. “So you guys are my fellow Olympians?”copyright protection17PENANAJKJcVss7Wi

“Not yet.” Hestia said. “Demi, Deon! We need to leave now.”copyright protection17PENANA7MQHmpPJHF

“Where’ are we going?” I asked.copyright protection17PENANAjENQbvVc1I

“To meet your other fellow FUTURE Olympians.” She put extra emphasis on the future. “Now come.” She said.copyright protection17PENANAVKsFWn7ou3

“I’m Demi.” Demi said to Adele.copyright protection17PENANAHCQxjcX9WE

“Oh, hello Demi.” Adele said smiling. “She’s so cute.”copyright protection17PENANAPfjC6v71H9

“We’re going to be goddesses together.” Demi informed her before running up and grabbing Hestia’s hand.copyright protection17PENANAJDTbjQzrf4

“Wow, isn’t she a little young to become a goddess?” Adele asked me.copyright protection17PENANAuXGlv0ysau

“And we aren’t?” I pointed out.copyright protection17PENANA6ZKpCQUKRC

Adele nodded. “That makes sense.”copyright protection17PENANATAgNMzEm0U

“We’d better catch up.” I said. “Hestia doesn’t like it when you get too far behind.” I said.copyright protection17PENANAqvR7Rm7pPi

“I always pictured her as one of the nicer goddesses.” Adele said. “But she’s kind of strict.”copyright protection17PENANATViDlUugFl

“I never pictured her before I meet her.” I said. “I didn’t know much about the gods before, well I still don’t to be honest.”copyright protection17PENANATzW9nJI25J

“I’ve always loved ancient Greece. And now I get to live it.” Adele said shaking with excitement.copyright protection17PENANAWvfOD6bKv0

“Yeah.” I said. Personally I had slept through most of my own history classes. So my knowledge of Greek Mythology was very limited. But when chatting up girls, their interests become your interests. “I just so excited to get to live in Greece.”copyright protection17PENANA3pWl3hgxxV

Adele looked confused. “Hestia told me New Olympus wasn’t in Greece.”copyright protection17PENANATqvPASzjUF

I tried to look surprised. “What? How can we be Greek gods if we don’t live in Greece?”copyright protection17PENANA2RahGNnRyT

Adele smiled. “I know right? What I find most interesting about all of this though is just being in the presence of a real goddess. I meant Hestia…she’s the real deal. She’s been a goddess longer than time!”copyright protection17PENANASBiOXl5dTD

“You know it.” I smiled. This girl liked old things way too much.copyright protection17PENANA8M3ECDwbWr

“Yeah, she’s experienced all of the things in history. She probably witnessed some of the most pivotal moments in history. It’s just all so overwhelming.” Adele said clearly very excited.copyright protection17PENANAQZi1hYPEQo

“You’re really into this.” I observed.copyright protection17PENANAyI0QwXcCb5

“I surprised you’re not!” she said. “We’re going to be gods and you act like you don’t care.”copyright protection17PENANAfkRjYuWuFT

“I do care.” I said. “I’m just not as passionate as you.”copyright protection17PENANAVwTeyadnP4

“Hurry up.” Hestia ordered us. “I can’t be late to my own rendezvous.”copyright protection17PENANAMnMMejKqVV

“Why didn’t we just rent a car?” I asked. Hestia had had me walking around since she had picked me up at the park, and I was not happy about it.copyright protection17PENANAwbfoudSrIx

“Greek gods can’t drive.” Adele said smiling at me.copyright protection17PENANAlE4eSCo60d

“Sure we can.” Hestia said. “The reason we’re walking is because the rendezvous is just a few more blocks away.”copyright protection17PENANAaMAXzOgkfc

“Who are we rendezvousing with?” Adele asked a few minutes later.copyright protection17PENANAgLnv9SJ2js

“Umm…” I started to say.copyright protection17PENANAAE6ESZhh5h

“The other Olympians.”  Hestia answered before me. “Didn’t I say that already?”copyright protection17PENANAug45dEUuYa

“Oh.” Adele said. “Sorry.”copyright protection17PENANAGeW4K5Wu7g

“Carry me?” Demi asked of Hestia, holding her arms up high.copyright protection17PENANAWIU2mN2D48

“Deon?” Hestia said turning to me. “Would you be so kind?”copyright protection17PENANAVzoZFCDz6C

I groaned. So now on top of having my feet burning, I would have to lug Demi around. Great! “Yeah sure. Come here Demi.” I lifted the young girl up and held her against my shoulder. I don’t know why, but for some reason Demi felt like a little sister to me. Even though I had only known her for about a day.copyright protection17PENANAKNQGSBLO5T

“Now hurry up!” Hestia ordered once Demi was settled. We resumed our pace. About now we were exiting the city and entering an industrial park. Looking around I saw nothing that I’d think to rendezvous at. It was just factories and warehouse, and they all looked the same too.copyright protection17PENANA51BZ4YM7BR

“Why did you pick this place?” I asked. “There’s no one here.”copyright protection17PENANAfxqEw5haFn

“That’s the point.” Hestia muttered. “We can’t have the humans witness the gathering of the New Olympians.”copyright protection17PENANAMpbD53fRSk

“Oh.” I muttered. “That makes sense.”copyright protection17PENANALXmnXrlKyX

            “So is New Olympus here? Hidden somewhere?” Adele asked excitedly.copyright protection17PENANABOv2t18KcN

            Hestia scoffed. “In this dump? Of course not.” She turned around to face us. “Do you two have to ask every possible question? When I recruited Demi she asked my name and how to spell it, that was it. With you two, its question, question, and more questions.”copyright protection17PENANA7YdjCjmRaf

            “Can you blame us?” Adele asked.copyright protection17PENANAbWcyj9ZFTy

            “Why did Demi need to know how to spell Hestia?” I asked.copyright protection17PENANADvm8xPaFAm

            “See! I answer one of your questions, and it spawns two new questions.” Hestia pointed out.copyright protection17PENANAtIlG1XZoOa

            “Fine no more questions.” I conceded. “We’ll just blindly follow an old lady who claims to be able to make us Greek gods.”’copyright protection17PENANAD06QzqZy6T

            “Speak for yourself.” Adele muttered. “I’ve got a book full of questions.”copyright protection17PENANA7KptSWj3CU

            Hestia stopped suddenly. “Here we are!” We were standing outside of a landfill. Not even joking.copyright protection17PENANAp5CLMDIM1x

            I took one sniff and nearly burned out my nose hairs. “Phew!” I shouted. “It stinks.”copyright protection17PENANAWEy3u7tuGz

            “Yeah, well it’s a landfill…” Adele muttered.copyright protection17PENANAoNjOhcLBfn

            “Come on.” Hestia said boldly walking into the stench, quickly followed by Adele.copyright protection17PENANAvFt7qgL92M

            “Great.” I muttered holding my breath. I dove in after her.21Please respect copyright.PENANA4QRoE9BpKR
