Chapter 1-His Weakness is Gone
"Are you ok?" Achilles asked Briseis as he wrapped his powerful arms around her. She was now. It didn't matter that her home was burning to the ground around her. Briseis soaked up her lover's touch, enjoying every second of it. From the corner of her eye she saw a man approach. She turned her head to see Paris rasing his bow. Briseis quickly jumped in front of Achilles.
"Paris! Don't!" She screamed. But it was too late, Paris had shot the arrow. The weapon found it's way to Briseis's chest and she screamed as pain engulfed her.
Paris dropped his bow and staggered backward, shocked at what he had done. Briseis fell into Achilles's arms and watched as the blood began to pour from her wound. He gently laid her on the ground and held her close.
"Please don't leave me," He said as tears fell from his eyes. She weakly rose a hand to stroke his tear stained cheek. He kissed it and held it in his own.
"I love you," She said weakly as her breathing became shallow.
"No, you can't die. Please." He begged. She gave him a frail smile, and rose her head to give him one last kiss. When their lips parted, she fell back on the ground and her soul departed for the underworld.
Achilles slowly rose to his feet. He let out a scream filled with torment and anger. He then turned to face Paris, who had witnessed the entire seen.The look Achilles gave Paris was enough to drain the color from any man.Which is what it did. Paris, knowing he was in trouble, took of running. Achilles grabbed his sword, preparing to go after him. When a Greek soldier appeared.
"Don't fret, mighty Achilles," he said, "I'll take care of the Trojan tramp's body." The soldier made a move to grab Briseis and Achilles turned his sword on him.
"You will do no such thing," he said fiercly, "now get out of here before I cut your throaght." Terrifed, the soldier quickly ran away. Now Achilles was alone with his lover's body. He fell to his knees and buried his face in his hands. His only weakness was gone.
