“DUCK! DUCK THE WHOE WORLD! DUCK ZEUS! DUCK HADES! DUCK APHRODITE! DUCK ARTEMIS! DUCKING SCHIST STYX YOU FREAKIN’ UNCULTED WITCH OF STONED HEARTED SPIDERS! DUCK! SCHIST! MAY YOU-“
“NICO! JUST STOP OKAY?! JUST STOP! IF YOU DON’T KEEP YOU MOUTH SHUT AND CONTINUE SPITTING THOSE VENOMOUS CURSES OUR PUNISHMENT WILL BE DOUBLED! SO STOP OKAY?! ISN’T IT BAD ENOUGH THAT THEY’LL KILL US, HUH?!” I stopped Nico from saying more curses.
I would do the same thing. Even much more. But this isn’t a normal problem. This isn’t the kind of problem with killing a monster or going on a quest alone. This is going against the will of the gods. We disobeyed their rules… and we will face of punishment.
“Hahaha, it’s over” I gave a bitter laugh. I still can’t believe what Styx said. Yes. She was truly not the kind of goddess whom we expected to see. Aphrodite was right. Now I hate her more than Artemis. I can’t believe we are going to die. After all we’ve been through. Everything will just turn into ashes. Nothing.
I curled down with my slender body. I looked from side to side. There seems to be no way out. You see, we are trapped actually. Or let’s put it this way, jailed. Maybe because the gods thought we are going to run away. What a stupid thought. Even if we run away, that doesn’t mean they’ll never find us. They will do anything in order for their words to be followed whether it’s against your will or not. I rest my head in my knees and I don’t know why but I broke down. I must look miserable now because Nico came in and spread his arms around me.
“Hey, don’t cry Thals. I’m sorry okay? I’m just so angry. So angry I could curse the names of the gods. I don’t even care what more they can do-“
“What if they’ll send you to Tartarus? Huh? You don’t know what they can do. What they are capable of doing. So I want you to stop. Just let the screams circle around your head. I don’t want you to suffer much more” I said within breaths.
“Oh. I- I didn’t actually thought about that. I’m sorry. I promise never to curse again” Nico said and kept quiet. Everyone is quiet. None of us dared to speak. We just sat there, in a long tight and meaningful embrace. It’s as if the hug is a life support system. If one breaks, then he dies.
After a few minutes, we heard the door clicked. It opened and we saw a giant with blonde hair and a Charlie Chaplain mustache. He wore somewhat an animal’s skin kind of clothes and he had yellow teeth. Gross. He had a pin attached to the left of his shirt. It wrote ‘Demeter’s Friendly Gardeners’
“Okay, time’s up lovebirds. It’s killing time!” He said with a huge smile. Since when did Demeter have a giant for a gardener? Well who cares, it’s not like we’re going to stay in this planet much longer. The reminder of it stabs my heart a million times.
“You’re somewhat hard for a gardener” Nico said with a tone of anger. If he’s not going to stop, I’m gonna have to slap him. This guy is bigger than him!
“Eh? So? You’re somewhat dark for a Romeo” the giant replied with a chuckle and Nico just glared at him. Good. He’s keeping his anger under control. I don’t know for how long but again, who cares anyway.
Mr. Gardener carried us towards a tunnel like structure. It’s dark as Underworld and I can’t even see anything. Good thing Nico held my hand or otherwise I’ll be screaming in terror. I’m not even kidding. We walked for like about 20 minutes and then arrived unto…
“WOW” both Nico and I said altogether. The gods sure do know how to make a title. This room is strikingly magnificent. A fountain that spits, I don’t know but it looks like gold. The walls, ceiling and floor are all made from marble and it the smell; oh the smell is unexplainably amazing.
