"D*ie,di*e,di*e," I yelled at the computer. I was playing a new game, it included taking over kingdoms and driving a army to war. I felt a finger tap my shoulder. I looked behind me to see Ares, God of war."Sup?"
He growled at me. I continued to stare. "What`s up," he muttered. "The stupid war games are what`s going on," he cried. Tears streamed down his face and I sat next to the big guy(on my bed) after I had pulled out my headphones.
"So,the games are destroying your image?" I had to ask and he kinda laughed.
"I`d think you were a child of Athena."
"I`m not smart enough for her."
He laughed more. "So, I hear you`re good with problems."
"My image is getting around," I said."Muhahahahahahahaha!!!!!!"
"That is really creppy."
"It`s not as bad as my witch laugh!!!!!"
"Anyways," he continued. He obviously wanted to get off the topic of laughs. "I really need help adjusting to the games sorta making funny me."
"Well,you need to describe your problem more..." I whispered. I wanted to say it softly, because I didn`t know what he would do. "You need to tell what`s excatly making you think they are making fun of you."
He breathed a deep breath. I hinced at it and I was not expecting what was going to happen. He started to sing!!!!!!!!! I am not kidding. He went into whole Opera mode. I just sat there, with my jaw hanging loosely.
"The games are curseing my image. I want them to stop and it`s only irritating me. I`ve sent over two thousand messages to companies and producers. It`s only getting worse and I am so sick of it!"
The song sounded an awful lot like Misery by Marron 5. I started to tap to a beat and let him sing. It was really kind of cool.
"There isn`t anyone who will listen to me. The games are getting awfully bad and they don`t have my have my back. No, they don`t have my back. I wanna get them back for the torture. I wanna get them back."
I continued to tap along and he started to smile. I sang along.
"I know they really got you bad. I know you wanna get them back, yeah you wanna get them back. The only thing is ,you really can`t. No, you really can`t."
Then the music got slower. It went to Give you heck, by the allamericanrejects.
"Yeah,they wanna make me fall so hard. The truth be told, I also play the games too. Yeah,they`ll never see what they`ve done to me. Because if they want, they will never. When they walk by, they hope it gives me heck!!!!!"
I slowed the music even slower and quickly speed up to match Up in the Air, by Thirty Seconds past Mars. "No,no,no. they don`t think that. I bet you, I think they just like your agent. I think they wrapped the idea so much in the air, they seen it only a thousand times before."
He started to think for a moment and he started to sing again. " I keep the creators in line. It`s like they never wanna let me win."
"Tell me what you need to do!!" I was singing along with Rockstar by Nickelback.
Finally, Aress jumped off the bed and did a guitar solo. He actually kinda rocked it. "Yeah. I need to get help and get them to get stop the games!!!!!!!"
I couldn`t stop laughing. "I didn`t know you sang!?!"
He laughed too. "You weren`t bad yourself."
"Fine. You are Apollo`s blessed one." I put up my fingers to the rock-on sign. He repeated the sign and smiled.
"I have one question,though."
"Yeah," he said. He pulled out his we*apon and picked dirt out of his fingernails.
"Why did you sing your problems?" Wrong thing to say. Listen,if a god/goddess sings at your house, don`t talk about it. His face went snow white and the blood rushed down his face. You could see the gold blood rush out of his face.
"I thought we had to sing our problems. That`s what Aphrodite told me."
I burst out laughing and he picked my up by some skin on my neck.
"My, you really are skinny."
"You`d think," I said back.
"So,we don`t have to sing our problems?"
"Why in the world would you think that? Oh, yeah. Your girlfriend told you. Heehee. That`s too funny. I really liked that, though. I should make that a requirement."
He paled again. "You don`t tell anyone about this." Whoops.
"Fine,fine," I cried. "Just let me go. I just can`t wrap my mind around Aphrodite doing that. Hephaestus, totally. Aphrodite, no way. Dude!!!!!! I think he made a clay statue of her. Le gasp. He`s messing with you."
"No," Ares screamed. He set me down. "He wouldn`t do that. He`s my brother."
"Hush up smart one. How would you know what he might do."
"That makes no sense," he bellowed. He looked around my room.
"There`s nothing in here. Seriously. Nothing happens to my room that I don`t notice," I reassured him. He didn`t seem satifised. He continued to look through my room and sniff in random places. I hacked.
"Well,there`s something you don`t know about. Look," he whispered and opened my door. Two nets came down and I was now entwined in a gold cage. I didn`t struggle. I knew they only got smaller.
"Muhahahaha. I got you Ares. Wait,what`s the mortal doing here. Grr. She only disrupts my plans. Ugh. Maybe she`ll take you too," a voice bellowed.
"Hephaestus!!!!" I screamed. "What`s your problem?!?!?!?!"
The voice didn`t respond to me. "I`ve caught you, Ares. Now you can`t take my wife away from me!!!!!"
"So you do love her," I yelled. I was trying to solve this case, since when I found out about it.
"Of course, mortal. Now hush."
"LALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALA," I screamed. Nobody tells me to be quiet.
"I will take away your voice, Mortal,"Hephaestus yelled at me. "I will have your own blesser take away your gift!!!!!"
"Don`t bring the kid into this," Ares cried.
"I`M NOT A KID!!!!!!!!"
"Hush mortal," Hephaestus cried at me again. I could tell he was getting tired of me.
"Ugh. Mortals. I`ll just shut you up myself," Hephaestus said. I started to rock my cage back and forth. I wanted to get out. Soon Ares did the same and he took ahold of my cage and stopped rocking me.
"Shh," he hissed. I nodded and kept yelling my La`s at Hephaestus. Ares quickly tried to tie our cages together with success. He rubbed his hand quickly agaisnt them as I sang my loudest. I looked towards my computer and willed it to turn on. It did and started to play music really loud. Ares looked at me funny, but shook it off.
"Hey," I hissed at Ares. I took a deep breath and sang really loud before continuing. "What are you doing?"
He finished whatever he was doing and screached at his hand. "Shoot. Ugh. I can`t get this to mend. Will you try?" I nodded and rubbed my hand agaisnt the cages. They gave really easy. The gold melted under my hands and I fell out of my cage. Ares eye`s got big and he sang at his loudest.
"You are the mortal!?!?! How dare you? And are you singing Ares? "Hephaestus screamed. I laughed at the comment and rubbed the bottom of Ares`s cage. I sang International love, by Pitbull as loud as I could. Ares soon fell out as the gold melted through out my hands.
"I will get you Ninja. Just wait," Hephaestus yelled. I laughed.
"I`ll be ready for it. I can`t wait," I said back. He growled at me and dissapeared. Ares continued to look at me.
"Wow." Those were the only words out of his mouth.
