In mainstream Christianity, the devil is usually referred to as Satan. Some modern Christians consider the devil to be an angel who, along with one-third of the angelic host (the demons) rebelled against God and has consequently been condemned to the Lake of Fire. He is described as hating all humanity (or more accurately creation), opposing God, spreading lies and wreaking havoc on the souls of mankind. Other modern Christians consider the devil in the Bible to refer figuratively to human sin and temptation and to any immoral human system.

Satan is often identified as the serpent who convinced Eve to eat the forbidden fruit; thus, Satan has often been depicted as a serpent. Though this identification is not present in the Adam and Eve narrative, this interpretation goes back at least as far as the time of the writing of the Book of Revelation, which specifically identifies Satan as being the serpent (Rev. 20:2)...

"Miss Heavenly," Mrs Johnson snaps from the front of the classroom. "What are you reading?"

Stuffing the papers under my desk, I look up to her as innocently as I can,"The textbook."

"Very well, name me Cornus“ children."

I think hard, trying to remember what I had memorised by heart. "Um...Zeus, Poseidon, Hestia, Hera and Demeter."

"Miss Heavenly you missed out one," She smirks like a cat with a plate of cream.

"No," I rebuke, looking straight at her. "Hades an outcasted child of Cornus."

Her smirk is wiped clean off of her face. I“m right.

Mrs Johnson doesn“t ask me any more questions after that and I continue to read the papers that I got from the library.

The bell rings and I gather my things, sighing having found nothing relating to his words, I walk out of the classroom.

Going to my locker, I take out my jacket and my school bag to go home.

Greek Mythology is a dry subject that could give History a run for its money when it comes to how boring they are.

Walking out to the carpark, sleek silver Range Rover Evoque is waiting for me. Punctual as ever...

Getting into the passenger seat, I buckle up, smiling slightly to the reddish brown haired, twenty-year-old man wearing a red plaid shirt over a white T-shirt with a pair of worn out jeans and walking boots, before turning to look aimlessly out the window.

"How was school?" He asks, not taking his eyes off the road."Victoria?"

"Huh?" I mumble, looking over to my older brother, Danny."Oh, school...it was as boring as ever."

"Anything weird happened today?" The standard question...

Yes. "No."

"Good. So, same old same old eh?"

I give him a weak smile. Yeah...not really.

There is no way I“m telling him what happened, my mind drifts off as I watch the trees, cars buildings and whatnot speed by the window...warm hazelnut brown eyes...the tingles I felt when he pulled me from the floor...how warm he was...

"Victoria?" Danny snaps his fingers in front of the car w

indow. "We“re home."

Shaking my head, I open the door going to the elevator across the underground carpark.

Pressing for the thirteenth floor, I avoid the curious stare of my brother by looking down at my worn out black high tops.

"So...where do you wanna live next?" Danny asks as the elevator takes its time crawling up the levels. "It has been five months..."

I don“t reply, I can“t be bothered to. I know it“s never up to me where we move to next, to me it has always been a family tradition to move in June or December. Seeing I“m not talking to him, Danny gives up on trying to get me to talk to him.

Going into the three room apartment, I don“t bother to call out that I“m home knowing mum is probably at work. Dumping my bag on the floor of my simple bedroom, I hop onto my bed grabbing the papers that I was reading before.

Who gave these to me?Who am I supposed to be looking for?

Shaking my head, I discard the papers into an empty file on my study desk. Grabbing the cursed things they call homework, I begin to do my advanced calculus homework. By the time I make it through hell, it“s almost ten O“clock and I haven“t had dinner yet.

Stretching, I moan loudly as I feel my tense muscles relax from sitting in a hunched position for so long. Grabbing my sweater, my wallet and the file, I go out into the living room where Danny is fast asleep.

Scribbling a note on the reminder board on the fridge, I say I went out to get food for dinner, grabbing my high tops, I exit the apartment and wear them as I go to the elevator. I walk down the street to the pizza parlour around the corner and order a take away Hawaiian pizza and a slice of only cheese pizza to eat here.

Sliding into a vacant booth, I open the file and begin to read the rest of the papers as I continue to read, I find the papers begin to talk about Greek mythology.

Cronus learned from Gaia and Uranus that he was destined to be overcome by his own sons, just as he had overthrown his father. As a result, although he sired the gods, Poseidon, Hestia, Hera and Demeter and by Rhea, he devoured them all as soon as they were born to prevent the prophecy. When the sixth child, Zeus, was born Rhea sought Gaia to devise a plan to save them and to eventually get retribution on Cronus for his acts against his father and children. (Cronus also fathered Chiron by Philyra.)

Cornus knew that his children could never possess the full power and responsibility of being Gods, so before the prophecy was to be fulfilled Corus split the powers of his six sons all across the world burying them in wombs of virgin girls who grew up to give birth to daughters who possess the remaining powers of his sons and let himself be defeated once this deed was done.

At the bottom of the page was a single line.

“My name is Dominic Hunter but to my brothers, I“m called Hades. Nice bumping into you today, my other half.“
