Hey gals and guys! Another update! Lets get going!
Disclaimer: Just look at the first chapter.
The beach was peaceful when I got there and nobody was there from what I could tell. I walked until I could feel the water hitting my toes. The water was cold, but it felt good running over my feet. I could smell salt in the air from the ocean breeze. It calmed me and made the aches in body go down. I felt at home here. I took a few steps back from the water and laid down. I was so tired all of the sudden. I fell asleep to the sounds of the ocean.
I was sitting in my throne room when one of my guards came in. He looked worried. I sat up and addresed him.
"Go on and tell me." I said. He nodded and bowed at my feet.
"There has been a sighting of a young boy on the beach at Manhatten. He is said to be around the age of seven. He has black hair and he is giving off a strong demigod scent, my lord." He said uneasily, as if I would do something bad at the mention of this. I nodded my head and dismissed him and flashed myself to the beach at Manhatten.
When I got there, I didn't see anybody there. I looked around for awhile till I saw a bundle on the ground a few feet in front of me. I walked up to it slowly and saw that it was the boy that my guard told me about. The boy looked to be around 6 or 7 and he had messy black hair. Crouching down beside him I saw that there were brusies and a few scrapes on him. I knew who the boy was and it scared me to see that he was hurt. I carefully picked the young boy up and flashed us to the palace.
We arrived at the throne room to see my wife sitting on her throne. I walked over to her and waited for her to say something.
"Where have you been darling? I was worried about you." She said getting up and coming over to me. I waited for her to notice what was in my arms.
"I had to go pick something up." I said motioning to the person in my arms. She looked at him to.
"Who is that?" She asked calmly. I knew she was going to blow up soon.
"This is my son Persues." I said stroking his hair gently. Persues cuddled closer to me and sighed. I smiled down at my sleeping son. He was just so cute.
"Why did you bring your son here? You know that I dislike your spawn from other women." She yelled out. Persues started to shift like he was about to wake up.
"Shhh! I don't want him to wake. The reason I brought him here was because he was on the beach asleep. He is also hurt." I said in a wisper. My wife looked down at Persues once again and saw that he had scrapes and brusies everywhere on his small body. I saw her expression soften as she took him in.
"Does he have no other place to stay?" She asked in a quieter voice. I shook my head no. I knew Persues's mother had passed away and his step-father didn't even like him. He had no one but me to love and take care of him.
"I guess he can stay." She said with a smile on her face. Persues was alseep and he still managed to wrap my wife around his little finger.
"I'm going to go put him to bed and call Apollo to check up on him." I said turning to go.
"I'll come with you." Amphitrite said. That really surprised me. I guess she was already in love with him.
"That's fine. Come on, let's get him to bed." I said walking towards one of our nice guest rooms.
Finshed. Well not yet. I have a question. To the first person who can awnser it they get to be in the story someway. The question is, who is the god/goddess of sleep? Well goodbye for now.
