Chapter 2 : The Other Players


Chapter 2 : The Other Players

Argos son of Ares, stands ready
The battle covered in blood
As he swings his sword
Breaking through skulls without a thud

He is a demigod built for battle
Fighting for what he feels is noble
Not realizing fate will summon him
And that his power is no greater than a tumble

Smashing through the front lines of the orcs
His hands hold his two handed blade
Spinning he cuts enemies clean in half
His aim never strayed

Enemies laid in halves over the battlefield
As their allies now step back
He grins as they slide away
Trying to avoid his next attack

He arrived not to win the war
But to challenge himself for honor
His memories fractured by events of the past
He sees himself only as a goner.

Wondering who his father was
If his father would be proud
Though he only had a few friends
That would follow him through any crowd

Grindle a dwarf though short in stature
Would wield two shields covered in spikes
He would pull them close around himself
Blocking any enemy strikes

Push then spin like a top
Grinding away all in this path
Though he did suffer from an illness
Booze would bring out his wrath

Two elf sisters Snowy and Ash
Snowy was a young master of fire
As Ash would do a deadly fan dance
Young they were and full of desire

A deadly ranger named Chuck
Whose arrow could hit a fly
From up to 100 feet
His target would always die

Against the odds they stand together
Their bonds had grown over several years
They healed each others wounds
Cleared each others blood and tears

They held their line throughout the night
Causing the orcs and trolls to retreat
Though they knew the enemy would return
And they would never give in to defeat

The group of four head back to an inn
Drained and tired from the fight before
They looked at how few had returned with them
Knowing there was far more in store

Agros keep his friends moral up
Though whispers of fear were always in the air
He feared that some unholy force
Gave the enemy strength and care.

The gods have not answered his prayers
Nor the prayers of dwarf, elf or man
The skies had turned red, and the clouds grey
He knew that soon he would need a plan

Grindle found himself and ale
Agros gave a deep sigh
Before long Grindle was drunk
Standing as Grindle asked Agros to give it a try

Cruel Agros found Grindle’s obsession
Denying Grindle’s slurred proffer
Chuck took up the proposal
As Ash and Snowy ignored the offer

Agros’ mind was full of thought
Pondering what it is he needed to do
Standing outside he looked to the sky
He begged the gods for some kind of clue

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Zeus sits on his throne in the clouds
Troubled times had divide his house
Faith in the gods had faded
As he often cheated on his spouse

Before the war broke out
The mortals below wanted to be free
And now they beg for aid
Though sick of paying the God’s Fee

He ponders what to do next
As he hears news never before told.
Hades had been slain, by an unknown force
Zeus’s throne room suddenly becomes cold.

Zeus, “what could have slayed a god?
What could dare defy us to this measure?”
Disturbing he found this all to be
This meant the end of his leisure

Soon Zeus received more ill news
As even more gods had been discovered slain
He stands now full of concern.
He sends out word for all to come to his reign

Soon Ares, Artemis arrive
Not long after Poseidon, Athena, and Hera join
Zues looks worried as no more answer his beckoning
Hera walks in behind Zues and speaks in Koine

The native tongue of the gods
It had been so long sense they all had met
Now troubled times bring them together
Shocked as they listened to Zeus fret.

Zues sends word for the aid of Angels
Judgmental beasts who only act when they must
Zues and them had several issues in former days
This causes strain on a long fractured means to trust

Gabriel leader of the angels responds to the summoning,
They discuss the ill events, but Gabriel refuses to assist
Stating that the issues of Gods do not concern him
Zues grits his teeth and clinches his fist

Gabriel departs and the gods begin to discuss
Where is safe, and if anyone has faced this new foe
The clang of armor is heard as Gilgamesh enters through the clouds
Zeus glares as the immortal sits and makes Zeus wine flow

Gilgamesh sips the flavor with the joy of a child
As Zeus demands for the name of the man before him
Gilgamesh,” I hear the gods have fallen on troubled times
I may know the cause” he says with a pause which intrigues them

Zues,”Tell me, who walks into the house of the gods
With information but does not tell me his name?”
Gilgamesh,” Oh but my name is of no matter…
I have just decided to change the rules of your game!”

Gilgamesh,” I will give you this once chance
To bow before your new King
Or I shall be forced to destroy you
For death is the only gift I bring

Zues,”It was you?”
He stands and summons a lighting bolt
He fires it at Gilgamesh who takes the hit
Gilgamesh lies on the ground like an ill colt

His body fried as Zues throws a few more striking him true
Gilgamesh starts to laugh and Zeus does pause
Gilgamesh black and burnt stands and the gods eyes widen
Gilgamesh,” My turn” He drew his sword and told them who he was

Gilgamesh,” I am Gilgamesh, Leader of the Immortals, Future King of all”
The other immortals minus Cecil walk in behind him and are revealed
Gilgamesh’s sword was covered in white gold, and he gave it a swing
Sending four waves of green rings towards each god and their blood was spilled

Broken and defeated the gods fall from the sky
Landing on the world of mortals…the sky begins to bleed
And blood rains down from the Heavens
Agros looks up and shakes his head at this new heed

A new pit formed in his heart
A feeling of deep despair
He felt the Gods were of no help
And that there was no need for prayer
