Hey guys! I'm so awfully sorry for my exceptionally long absence from the writing world! I'm not going to bother with pathetic excuses or trying to justify myself because I know that the reason for this delay was because of my utter laziness. And the fact that I was on holiday for a month without any steady access to a laptop. Oh look, I'm feebly trying to justify myself again. Once again, I'M SO SORRY. I will try to go for more frequent updates (this might not end so well). This chapter is more of a filler, nothing momentous. And it's pretty short (in comparison to the rest of my chapters). Not one of my best pieces of work, but I guess that's what I get for just writing it in one go. ANYWAY, without further ado, I PRESENT TO YOU CHAPTER FIVE (finally).
The wind started howling in the treetops as I turned the page and beheld the first page to Persephone's diary. Her loopy scrawl decorated the page like a beautiful artwork proclaiming "This is the personal diary of Lady Persephone, Goddess of Awesome." I openly chuckled at this, something that had previously been unheard of that was becoming a frequent occurrence. 'Please, we all know that there is only one deity of awesome, which would be ME,' I thought to myself chuckling. I turned the page and was assaulted by vivid and bright colours decorating the page. I rubbed my eyes and blinked a couple of times to clear my eyes. 'It's now or never', I thought before I immersed myself in the story of Persephone's life.
Mother has given me this diary for my eighteenth birthday saying that it is for, and I quote, 'you to write down all your thoughts and feelings'. Please, I know she's just going to attempt to read it every time I write in it in the hopes of uncovering whether I have any 'love interests' or something silly like that. And that is why I am going to hide my diary in the floorboard under my bed.
Anyway, today I met a rather interesting character while I was in The Glade. You would never guess! I met my dear Uncle Hades, God of the Underworld etc. You know that really scary and depressing looking guy? I hope my dry wit and oh so brilliant sarcasm has not been lost on you diary.
I don't think I can refer to him like that now though. When I met him in The Glade today he was completely sunburnt and quite resembled a tomato! Can you imagine that, the high and mighty Lord Hades, red all over like a ripe tomato? The fact that he had green anti-sunburn paste on his face just added to the hilarity. It was absolutely hilarious; I wish I could have had a picture of that! He was so shocked and embarrassed, acting all flustered like a little girl! I must say though, he does have flair. Come on, he MADE a chasm in the ground, left for his kingdom through it and then closed up the hole leaving no evidence of his presence there! Freaking hell! He didn't look too bad either which was quite surprising. You would expect the Lord of the Underworld to look all sickly and weathered like a decrepit old man or something. But no, he defies convention and turns out to be the hottest looking piece of eye candy I have ever seen. His body was perfectly toned, but not too toned that he resembled a big rock. Cough cough, Ares. Oh and that jaw line! So perfect and strong… drool…
He is slightly self-obsessed though; when I happened upon him he was in utter despair because his "beautiful face" had been burned. His words, not mine. Come on, man up! It's just a bit of sunburn! I'm a bit embarrassed about our meeting though because I mistook him for a mortal. Imagine my humiliation when he revealed that he was Lord Hades, one of the 'Big Three'! I don't think I would be able to face the almost certain mockery that would be awaiting me. But I really want to see him again; he's just so handsome… Ugh, restrain yourself woman! He'd probably just dismiss you as a silly little girl like he did today… Oh well, it's not like I'm ever going to see him again anyway, for a couple of years at the least. He has no business with me, what with him being a god of the dead and me being an earth goddess. Hopefully by the time I next meet him, he'll have forgotten about my somewhat embarrassing slip up.

I was chuckling as I read her diary entry; sweet little "Kore" has the hots for me! How flattering. Yes, I remember that day clearly… She was quite flustered now that I think of it. No wonder. This diary was just about the best thing I've ever come across, it's so juicy! And I'm only on the first diary entry! I settled down to skim the rest of the entries for further references to myself. This was turning out to be quite the enjoyable afternoon…
Once again, I'm so sorry for the infrequent updates. The fact that people still subscribe and story alert this even though I am clearly underserving makes me all teary eyed. And so do reviews. Wink wink.
Tell me whether you liked it, hated it or if it was just… okay. Also, if any of you have any requests for the story (such as any ideas for the plot), I'm open to any suggestions.
Once again, I'M SORRY!
Love you guys,
