You've probably heard some Greek myths and legends but you've never heard one like this. This story is no myth. Forever, your view on the Greek Gods and Goddesses will change. They do not just sit around on Mount Olympus looking at the humans below. Wars come between them regularly. When you have a thunderstorm coming, or a hurricane, those are Zeus and Posiden having an a physical disagreement. We're sure you've never heard of Styx and Ares coming together to overpower Zeus and Mount Olympus. So now we're here to tell you our experience of saving the Greek Gods and Goddesses.
Amphitrite and Hephaestus
Greetings Non-Gods. It is a pleasure to finely be able to tell this adventure. My daughter Luna and Hephaestus's son Lucas will be able to tell this story first handed since they saved Mount Olympus. Not for them to take all the pride though, we Gods and Goddesses helped them too. I am Amphitrite, the Goddess of the Sea, and Hephaestus is the God of Fire. We are here to tell you some of the Ares and Styx story, as our children will be doing the same.
Luna and Lucas
Hey guys! Luna here. You probably already know Lucas and I from my mom's greeting. But she just covered the basics. We had to go through a lot of nasty
stuff to save Mount Olympus. We got some help from some of the Gods and Goddesses. Most of the main Gods and Goddesses didn't even realize Ares and Styx were
trying to take over Mount Olympus. Oh! I completely forgot. You guys probably don't know who Styx is. Styx is the Goddess of the underworld river. And you may
know Ares is the God of war.
This is Lucas and I'm going to start the adventure for you. Luna and I were at Half-God camp and we were doing archery when we saw the Main House light
up. All campers know when the main house lights up that you are to report to it. It was late in the afternoon so I was a little confused. I had a bad feeling about the
announcement about to be made. We knew we had to go there, so we dropped our bows and left for the house. "Lucas and Luna to the Main House, all other campers
head to dinner." Luna and I glanced at eachother with a confused look. With one last look behind us, we ran to the Main House. When we came inside we were suprised
to see our parents talking to Dionysus, the main camp counsler. When they noticed us in the doorway they stopped conversation and said "We would like to speak to you
two outside please." We obeyed and moved outside with them. We were all kind of looking at eachother when Amphitrite finally spoke up. "I have noticed that the
underworld river Styx is gaining power at a extremley fast rate. When I told Hephaestus about this, he said that Ares has been ripping off people for lots of power."
Amphitrite and Hephaestus
"If us Gods and Goddesses did anything, Ares would notice. Since you are Half-Gods he won't notice if you do anything. We do not have the power, like I said
before to do anything. We are going to try to contact Zeus to look over Ares and Styx. Until then we are going to ask you to take caution. We have no clue where this
might start, or end."
We left the camp after warning our children and headed to Mount Olympus. When we got there we spoke with Zeus and told him what we told our children. "I
will look over the case, although I am sure Ares is on a power spurt" said Zeus. We left satisfied and soon got a parchment from Zeus saying Ares was just on a power
spurt and had nothing to do with Styx. Styx is part of the Underworld, so Zeus had no say over what she does. After the letter though, I continued feeling Ares power
up. This was not just a power spurt. Amphitrite and I headed back to the Half-God camp. We needed our children to take down Ares and Styx. After talking to
Dionysus to gather up our children we gave them permission to head to the Underworld and defeat Ares and Styx, whatever they were doing.
Heading To The Underworld
Luna and Lucas
Lucas and I packed our bags and headed to Mount Olympus and found our parents and Artemis, Athena, and Apollo. Our parents had already talked to them
so we didn't need to explain our story. Going up to Posiden and asking for some help on our mission would be like going to a Non-God and asking for a million dollars. "I
am willing to share my secret passageway to the Underworld after seeing the proof. So here you go" Athena said while handing us a map. Artemis and Apollo both
walked up to us. "We will be with you along the journey. We can fight with you and protect you along the way." So that was it, we all got up and looked at eachother.
Our parents thanked Athena, Artemis, and Apollo and left. Athena said she would pray to Artemis if we needed help, then she left too. Artemis and Apollo took us with
them to a Roman City far beneath Mount Olympus. After getting to the secret passageway, night was rising. Lucas started the fire, he seems to be good with fire really well. Artemis brought some meat and dried apples back from the forest. We had two tents, one from Lucas and Apollo, another for Artemis and I. I sat by the fire, wondering when this would end. Right as I started humming, Apollo comes out with a lyre and starts playing with my tone. I said "Shhhhh! Your going to make Ares find us!" With saying sorry and getting back into his tent I climbed into my tent with Artemis, and all of us fell asleep.
When Luna and I woke up the next morning we packed up and set off in the secret passageway. With Luna handling the map and the water to keep up energy, whenever we stopped for the night I would handle the fire. We moved quickly and went deeper into the chamber. Soon we landed at a fork and the corner of the map had been shriveled up. It was near the end of the passageway so we couldn't look at the other side of the map either. Luna stood and started mumbling about this and that and even layed on the ground for a minute. "Go left" she ordered, and that we did knowing she could feel the Styx river. We came to another halt at a door and looked at the map. There was a combination written and we soon figured out how to open the door. When we did there was extreme amounts of heat and we were forced to close the door again. Artemis was instantly praying to Amphitrite for help of her water and recieved an awnser fast. "She said there's no use, it's a volcano." Luna said "Would there be anything way to turn around the combination to protect us in the volcano or something?" A giantic booming voice replies "NEVER!"
