What the Underworld?
A young boy, hmm, fine--
but, flying sandals?
Must be another son of Zeus.
Ah, yes, the flash in his eyes,
the gait,
the perfect posture.
A hero.
Oh, look at that sword!
That would have been nice
to have noticed five minutes ago.
And--
Deities of Olympus!
He's coming for me!
Yes, yes, I know,
I must look SO menacing.
LYING HERE ON THE FLOOR HALF ASLEEP!
Maybe it's the snakes? Is the dress trying too hard?
Rats.
I'll have to stick to black. More like my soul.
Yeah, white isn't my color.
I know that when his sword
Reaches its target, a horse as pure as Zeus (cough, cough)
will leap from my bloody neck.
How did it turn out that I will be survived
by a pegasus?
