Part 1

The room was cold a result of the power emanating from the gods as they sat around the round holy table. The walls felt tighter. Although far apart, it felt like they were closing in on them.

The only noise that could be heard, the harsh breathings of the angels that served as personal messengers to the gods. There was no fire, nor heat just cold, freezing air and unbearable silence.

Each of the gods had taken a seat in Oceania, the centre of the world of Neptune, the home of all the gods. The meeting was presided by Zeus, the king of all kings and the god of all gods. He sat on the high chair in the middle of the table with his son at his right hand side and his wife at his left.

There was not a smile on anyone's face as they sat around the round table thinking and contemplating. Their faces edged from the fear of war. The life of the people of Neptune was being threatened by hades and they were at a loss on what to do to stop him.

"The question is, if indeed the prophecy is true can it be averted?" Apollo asked. His eyes shone like the sun, his skin glowed like fiery clay, his red lips were curved in a frown. He seemed to be more affected with the turn of events than any of the gods because the people believed greatly in him and he loved them sincerely.

"I don't care If the prophesy is true or not. I do not care for it to be averted. I want Hermes dead and I want him dead before the first festival. This throne shall never be contended. The prophecy be dammed." Zeus growled. His voice causing the wall to close in even more on the other gods. When he was angry they feared.

He hit his staff on the ground in fury, his eyes did not leave the golden altar that was set in front of him.

A total of six gods sat on the round table their eyes never leaving Zeus. Demeter, Apollo, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Ares and Hestia.

Aiden the son of Zeus who was at his right hand was less concerned with the happenings of the gods. The war was not his to worry about and he did not like to worry about it. He watched with little concern whilst stopping himself occasionally from yawning. His father had never sent him on a war before he won't now. He still could not understand why he was asked to be in the meeting in the first place. A god he was, yes, but of what use was he if he knew not how to fight.

He had been quiet through out the meeting What was he to contribute? He had no place amongst them, they had never made it more clearer than they did now. Only his friend Apollo spared him a glance when he walked in. But he was here for his father and he wouldn't let their arrogance discourage him.

He was the youngest of all the gods and had much to learn from them. His father would always tell him the best way to learn was to listen. He was to listen only and maybe one day he would be sent on a war. His feelings about this was that of ambivalence. He had lived his life like a tree in the wind from birth, waving opinions wherever the wind sent him. The wind, his father.

"You say it like it's easy. No one of us can step into the gate of hell and return. Except those of the original blood and you know that." Aphrodite said. She flipped her white hair back exposing her veined neck. The gown she wore flowed down her legs and her skin was as white as snow. She too was worried and like others she didn't have a plan.

"I'll go then." Ares stood, courageous as always. His arrow slung on his shoulders and his sword glistened on the table. The god of war never chickened out of a battle. He was the god of war after all. "I'll bring him to you on a platter of gold my Lord."

"Don't be stupid Ares." Demeter admonished. Her pretty lips curved in distaste. "This is not a war with Demons, this is going to hell. This is no time for courage___

"Enough of this bickering." Zeus bellowed. He had no time for this, the prophecy must be stopped by all means yet his fellow gods seemed not to understand the severity of the matter. If they did they would not be here waisting his time with meaningless things. "My son will go." Zeus breathed.

His words shook him as much as he did his son and others. Aiden's eyes widened as he was forced to look up at his father.

Aiden had watched the gods argue with mock amusement and disinterest in the issue but when he heard his father call his name he immediately became alert. His blue eyes glowed as he stared at his father in shock. Although he was a god and had the blood of his fathe

r making him second to his father. He had never once been to a battle field his father never allowed it before why now? He swallowed, his ears must be failing him. He turned to his father in protest.

"But father__"

"My decision has been made. You leave by night fall. Bring me his head on a platter." Zeus turned to him and placed his hand on his sons shoulder. "You are my son and the gate of hell shall not harm you."

"But you can't do that! Aiden has never been to a war before and then you send him for the most dangerous. I cannot permit it." Apollo objected standing up. His golden eyes shone in fury.

"And you don't have to, he is my son."

"If he is then you should know better than to send him to a war where he would probably end up dead. Zeus think about this!" Apollo beckoned him with a pleading voice. "Even if you won't change your mind permit me to make a warrior of him before you send him off."

"My word is order, that is how it has been and that is how it will always be." Zeus said firmly. When Apollo saw that he couldn't convince Zeus otherwise he looked over at his friend Aiden for help but he wasn't speaking.

Aiden stared at his father in shock. He felt nothing at that point but fear and disappointment. A god should not fear they would say. A god should fear nothing he told himself over and over again but it didn't stop his blue eyes from twinkling in fear like the rays of the star.

"Do you not trust my judgment Apollo?" Zeus asked calmly. Both eyes locked with fury and Apollo turned away. But he knew that he wasn't going to give up so easily. Something did not just feel right.

When the argument stopped the walls became tighter for Aiden.

Hera looked at the man she loved with pain, anguish almost tearing through her. She should save her son, she ought to, but to challenge her husband in front of lesser gods had it's consequences which was worse than death. She tore her eyes away from her son with great difficulty as she walked behind Zeus to the higher table. Zeus sat on his throne and Hera joined in.

The throne was made of gold and diamond. It shone as bright as the sun powered by Apollo himself. And as Zeus sat, the brightness increased a thousand. Calling the gods to stand on their feet, all six of them stood.

"It is my ruling today. I Zeus god of Oceania have ruled yet again that my son, Aiden, shall leave by nightfall fall for the gate of hell. Only to return after with the head of Hermes or never to return." He hit his staff on the ground and all the gods disappeared as a loud thunder struck the heavens gate.

Zeus ignored the disappointing glare Apollo gave to him as he too disappeared from the palace.

Immediately the gods left Aiden rushed to his fathers side, his eyes twinkled with anguish and fear. He almost fell to his knees before his father but was restrained only by shame.

"Father I've never been to a war before! Do not bring death upon your only son!" He pleaded meekly. He stood at a distance from his father so his father won't notice just how much of a coward he was. But his father knew already, he needn't hide his cowardice from his father. Zeus sought to teach his son the act of bravery by all means possible. The son of a god would not be a coward especially not his son.

"And that's why you have to go for this one. The people of Neptune see you as a coward that hides behind the shadow of his fathers glory. Someday you will rule and if the people do not respect you now they won't respect you then and the kingdom will not stand. You have to earn your name son just Like I did mine. You should no longer be referred to as the son of Zeus but by your own name." Zeus spoke, his deep bass voice firm. If there was ever a doubt in Aiden's heart it was cleared. It became obvious that his father was not going to let him off the hook this time. His mind had been made up against him.

Zeus felt his wife tense up before him, he could sense that she wanted to intervene for her son so he gave her a signal not to speak.

"What If I do not return father?" Aiden asked. He scoffed. "I doubt that I shall return, father please give more thought on this matter."

"If you do not return then the prophecy will be fulfilled and we all shall go up in the flames of Hades, but I shall not give my word and take it back. There is no more thought to give on this matter, it has been decided and I'm not changing my mind. You hold the fate of Neptune in your hands now son."
