The Gods Arise... I think

Chapter 1

"Hey, narrator! Author! Jerk! Is it my turn to talk yet?"

Well, I suppose you just did, but no. Not yet. I'm sorry, visitor. That's just Zeus. He's arrogant, annoying, rude, ignorant. Need I say more?

"I heard that!"

Be quiet. Okay. Zeus is also very loud and obnoxious, and -- oh dear.

"Hey, narrator. I am not obnoxious."

Yes, you are.

"I also am not loud, or arrogant, or anything else you said."

Again, yes you are.

"I am not! I am perfect! And did I mention very humble?"

"Zeus, who are you sleeping with this time?"

"No one, I'm just yelling at the dumb narrator. Anyways, who are you? My wife?"

Actually, young god, I am quite intelligent. Remember that I created you guys. So, I'm just going to ignore Zeus for a while. He's honestly getting on my nerves just a little bit, so I'll put him on mute. But anyways, moving on... if he'll stop slapping me. I'm really sorry, let me go put him in the Box of Shame.

"Hey, rude!"

Not any less rude than you are. Good, now I can't hear him. Oh, hello Athena. Now, Athena is one of my favorites. But don't let any of the others catch wind of that. I know you're good with war tactics, so you better watch your step with this one. Anyways, so Athena generally tends on the leadership side, even if she sits in the younger half of the group. She and a couple others are sort of unanimously recognized as leaders. She usually breaks up the figh-- speaking of which, I apologize yet again but I need to help her. Please excuse me.

"So, how are you?"

"I'm Hades. They all think I'm moody, but I just think a lot. How are you enjoying the first chapter?"

"Oh, you don't talk? Anyways, you can skip chapters, read them out of order, we don't really have a major storyline anyways. So, just pop in and out whenever you want. It'll still make sense."

Hades, my dear. I have a special spot in my heart for him, and I think he may be aware of that, but if he is fortunately he doesn't take advantage of it. These three-- Zeus, Hades, Athena-- make up the bulk of the tussles in the family. You can probably picture the role of each. I try to protect Hades as much as I can. He's not much of a violent person, and I suppose I made him into a little dork, so he gets a bit of the short stick. Sometimes though, I'm a little late, so thank god for Athena when I need her.

"Narrator, may I leave?"

Of course. If you need help just give a yell.

"Okay. Thanks."

Bye kiddo. He's so sweet and polite, can't you see why he's the special one? It really kills me to see him suffer. Back to my original point, though. I want to watch these kids grow into full fledged gods and goddesses. As of yet, only two of them have their powers; Hestia and Demeter. What? Who's the oldest? Hestia of course. Being immortals, they don't age as humans do, so currently they all look close to their ages. Hestia is 27, followed by Aphrodite at 26 and Demeter at 24. Hera is 22, Hades is 15, and Poseidon is 14.

Finishing up the group, we have Zeus at 13, Athena at 12, and Ares and Hephaestus at 10, although Heph is older. Apollo and Artemis are both 9, Dionysus is 7, and finally Hermes closes the book at 5 years old. All of the kids over 18 physically stay 18, and the younger kids grow until 18 and then stop. It's okay if you need to reference this for their ages later; even I will have to do that.

"Author!"

That high-pitched squeal was most likely Apollo yelling at Hermes for taking one of his toys. Or maybe his bow. Yes, the twins both have fully equipped archery sets. No, it's not dangerous. They were born shooting arrows. Hermes! Put the bow down! Do I need to take away your flight shoes?

"No! Sorry! Wahh!"

Hermes, don't let me catch you doing that again. I've had too many complaints from your siblings. If you break it, I may get very mad.

"Like I am now! You jerk!"

Ares! What did you do? Why did you let Zeus out of the Box?

"B'cuz I wanted to. Duh."

Wipe that little smirk off your face. I'm putting you both in the Drawer.

"Wait, the Drawer? No! Wait, sorry! I didn't mean it!"

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly.

They should have different names a...
