            “Deon?”copyright protection5PENANAnGWOsKzQbY

            “Yeah.”copyright protection5PENANAffAm3EDhdY

            “I’m studying.”copyright protection5PENANAijtgHRqZ28

            “Yeah I know.”…Bounce.copyright protection5PENANAspOpeh9N8k

            “This is a quiet room. I’m here to study and concentrate. Bouncy Balls belong outside.” Adele closed the book and looked at mecopyright protection5PENANAMnAnKD1nVe

            “I’m sorry.” I said. “It’s just, we’ve been here for hours.”copyright protection5PENANAmdxQueIUdK

            “I know. But you didn’t have to come.” Adele started flipping through her notebook. “I told you that you’d get bored.”copyright protection5PENANA2GaR5o8fcg

            “I hate your exam more than you.” I muttered.copyright protection5PENANAAYEamoNnMI

            “Goddess of wisdom baby.” Adele smiled at me. “I like learning…almost as much as you.” She leaned over and kissed me.copyright protection5PENANAB9W9ZqoHkC

            “I know.” I said.copyright protection5PENANAsniCeo1nDd

            “Tell you what.” Adele turned and started rummaging through her backpack. “Why don’t you go and get me a coffee. When you get back we can go and hang out in the park. No books. No studying. Nothing but you, me, and a couple coffees. Here.” She tried to give me some money.copyright protection5PENANAEecioyHcWu

            I stood up and backed away with a look of horror on my face. “I would never make my lady pay!” I said astonished she would think otherwise.copyright protection5PENANAVxDRGDi5lC

            “You paid last time.” Adele protested.copyright protection5PENANAHNZZqensB1

            “And I’ll pay next time too.” I said.copyright protection5PENANAFffSxErfQn

            “Let me pay once.”copyright protection5PENANAJMVmDC0WHl

            “When you ace your exam, I expect a steak dinner to celebrate.” I said smiling.copyright protection5PENANAyo9ynAML2n

            “You won’t let me buy you coffee, but you think you’re worth a steak?” Adele jested grinning at me.copyright protection5PENANANID3AbI2qz

            “For the goddess of wisdom, you have much to learn.” I told her.copyright protection5PENANAp9lkwZXwVE

            “Oh really?” she raised her eyebrows.copyright protection5PENANASu212qBPcE

            “I can teach you many things my lady.” I leaned in and pecked her on the cheek.copyright protection5PENANAdZmQ3W1LZr

            “Go get my coffee.” She pushed me away playfully. I made my way through the bookshelves and exited the library.copyright protection5PENANAkoBFJ8FHFA

            With Adele in college now, most of my life was spent watching her study. She was always busy with schoolwork it seemed. Me being Dionysus and all, I didn’t see the point in expanding my education. Greek god was a pretty sweet gig to be honest, but Adele loved to learn, so here I was. College was fun, especially when you didn’t have classes, but part of me missed how life was before. And I don’t mean high school. Never going back to that plague. I mean living on New Olympus, the home of the gods. Actually getting to be a god. Granted we had a lot bigger problems than exams. But I really did miss it. This hiatus was killing me. I just wanted to be back on that mountain.copyright protection5PENANAlx4nz7ObW0

            The coffee shop was small, cramped, and smelled like heaven. And I don’t even like coffee. There were probably more hipsters than there were coffee beans, which was ironic, or not ironic…I forget which way hipsters try for. But anyways, the line was long, and the baristas were taking their time.copyright protection5PENANAP90c0491P8

            I finally got my coffees and hurried out the door. Adele had probably proved String Theory while I was waiting in line. I was rushing to get back to her that I almost didn’t see the child standing in front of me.copyright protection5PENANAtax4QhdvYS

            “Zeus! Watch it.” She shouted as I nearly spilled coffer all over her.copyright protection5PENANA5jqaHZhvbe

            “Demi?” I asked surprised.copyright protection5PENANAw1oxdoBmqr

            “Call me Demeter.” Demi, sorry Demeter, was another of my fellow New Olympians. Her along with me, Adele, and all the rest were reincarnations of the old Olympians. The one’s whose names we had taken over.copyright protection5PENANAuTB1YribXh

            “Oh right. You changed your name.” I said frowning.copyright protection5PENANA33AudhtvNF

            “Merged my personalities.” Demeter corrected me. “My chakra just wasn’t right when I had two names.” Demi used to be really shy and quiet, those were the days. What had once been a sweet little girl was now in middle school. And boy had it ruined her.copyright protection5PENANAJkG7RUwtgW

            “Whatever. Why are you here? You don’t go to college.” I asked.copyright protection5PENANAULPwNOY6ZV

            “And you don’t go to school at all bum.” She snapped back at me, and then literally made a snapping noise with her gum. I didn’t like Demeter as much now.copyright protection5PENANAn3YYxcg1H3

            “Shut up, you’re like 12.”copyright protection5PENANAHroozgi5Jz

            “Whatever Kings of Deon. I got a message.” Demeter said. She snatched one of the coffees out of my hand and started sipping it.copyright protection5PENANA1EkRa8G8eF

            “A message, from who?” Who would have a message for me, I guess the better question is who would trust Demi enough to have her deliver a message. I bet Adele’s coffee all the popular girls in Demeter’s school heard this message before me.copyright protection5PENANA3CJ2AgeQiW

            “Eww.” She dropped the coffee she had taken and pretended to gag on what she had drunk. “That’s not pumpkin spice latte.”copyright protection5PENANAUZninWyF1h

            “It’s nowhere close to October.” I said. “Demi, tell me about the message.”copyright protection5PENANAf3WzV6IBeW

            “Demeter.”copyright protection5PENANAhiy0l8hzZz

            “De-I’m going to beat you with that parking-meter.” I said frowning at her.copyright protection5PENANAvTyTbWPKBR

            “Whoa!” Demeter put her hands up and turned around in a circle.copyright protection5PENANA2QUYqQ48rj

            “I don’t have time for this.” I walked past her. “There is no message. This is just like the time when you told me giants were attacking New Olympus.”copyright protection5PENANA5JCDJXM0wM

            Demi snort laughed. “Ha! That was funny.”copyright protection5PENANAz2F8VR4LCG

            “So was your last math grade.”copyright protection5PENANACExxDXnH6P

            “Oh my god, you know that teacher hates me!” She shouted at me. People were started to look at us.copyright protection5PENANA1byDPiACi7

            “Goodbye Demeter!” I shouted over my shoulder.copyright protection5PENANAoSa416V5Ry

            She ran after me. “Deonosaur!” She stood in my path and spread her arms, blocking every route of escape.copyright protection5PENANAMucj1Phpxn

            Just kidding, I walked around her again. She grabbed my non-coffee occupied arm and pulled. She slowed me down…but only because I didn’t want to spill the coffee. No middle school girl is stopping Deon. She wasn’t even pulling that hard, but anyways.copyright protection5PENANAezzNcp5N2n

            “Ok seriously. Stop.” She told me. “I really do have a message it’s 100% legit. I swear.”copyright protection5PENANAVrg5vhbrn3

            “That’s what you said all those other times.” I said. “You’re a liar and I don’t trust you.”copyright protection5PENANAZ9xcsz1KYz

            “Aletheia take me.”copyright protection5PENANA8c9HZl7499

            To you those words probably didn’t mean much, but swearing on the truth goddess held some merit to Greek gods like myself. I turned to look at Demi. Even she, with all her lies, tricks, and jokes wouldn’t invoke that oath lightly. “Tell me what you know.”copyright protection5PENANAs4AIa6Zlxm

            “Kara sent me. There’s a problem.”copyright protection5PENANApwwWIYvKIt

            “That’s it?”copyright protection5PENANAkQGtyGPGKY

            “What do you mean that’s it!” Demeter stared at me like I was stupid. It was a look I often got, not even gonna lie. “When is trouble on Olympus good? When is a sudden summons to Olympus good? When is anything we do in this ‘job’ good?”copyright protection5PENANAPd3qVdwVz4

            “You have a point.”copyright protection5PENANAiYAOUjNq4w

            “Kara told me to bring you and Juliet back to New Olympus ASAP.” Demeter explained.copyright protection5PENANAUonASWgHC1

            “Who’s Juliet?” I got the ‘are you stupid’ look again.copyright protection5PENANAGseJTaXp6w

            “ROMEO AND JULIET! DEON AND ADELE.” Demeter shouted at me. “Adele is Juliet in that metaphor. I’m supposed to bring you and Adele in.”copyright protection5PENANAtpu4epo2Qs

            “Who’s Romeo then…I’m JOKING! Only joking. Adele’s in the library, hurry up this way.” I led the way as Demi and I hurried towards the large old building.copyright protection5PENANAyKRWkJSBqv

            Our pace was slowed by a librarian who angrily shushed us. We were forced to silently power walk the rest of the way. It was probably an odd sight, but I didn’t care. Mythical problems worried me more than my image at a school I didn’t attend.copyright protection5PENANAC7XRRQ2Og9

            “Hey Deon.” Adele said calmly when we arrived at our table. “Oh! Demeter, how nice to see you.”copyright protection5PENANAkKzPONfdP5

            “What’s up Rolling in the Deep?” Demeter said smirking at her use of word play.copyright protection5PENANAFoPwlagdLH

            “Here’s your coffee, Olympus has a problem and needs us all to come back.” I said in one breath.copyright protection5PENANAJoOHgFyjtO

            “Oh.” Adele looked surprised. She glanced between the two of us. “What’s this now?”copyright protection5PENANAsOz1EnPTAF

            “Kara sent me with a message. She said, there’s a problem.” I don’t know whether Demeter knew this was too serious of a situation to mess around, or if she just respected Adele more than me…but it would have saved time if she had been that up front with me.copyright protection5PENANAYg3ONoY3CJ

            “What kind of problem?” Adele asked. “Like, on a scale of Old Blade to New Kronos?”copyright protection5PENANAKm7y3oeBHI

            “It would be right around, the queen of the gods called us back to New Olympus because some serious shizznit is going down.” Demeter replied.copyright protection5PENANAp9wYbbm04X

            “But that could mean anything.” Adele said. “We shouldn’t jump to conclusions. However we should probably get there as soon as possible.”copyright protection5PENANAG3eJR18P4L

            “I like the way you think.” I said.copyright protection5PENANAyO7Gna4BLL

            “I swear to the gods if you guys start kissing or something I’ll make corn come out your eyeballs.” Demeter said matter-of-factly.copyright protection5PENANAjbVQa71x76

            “Shut up.” I told her.copyright protection5PENANAvN9Jx1KGQO

            “Aletheia take me.”copyright protection5PENANAspDA60LbCx
