You may know other superero stories, with their parents telling them to hide their powers, conceal don't feel, all that stuff.
But that isn't my Story. In fact it's quite the opposite.
Well, first of all, I'm not a superhero.
Sure, I have powers, I save the world, I guess you could say I'm a superhero but I don't consider myself one.
I'm something else entirely, something better.
I'm a Demigod.
That's literally half a God and I'm more powerful than most.
I'm getting off track though.
I'm not a superhero, my story is way more tragic.
My parents may have loved me, well at least my father did, i never knew my mother, but he knew as well as I did that there was never a happy ending for me.
I was a warrior, a savior and ultimately a sacrifice.
That's what I was born to be and that's what I trained all my life to be, but I didn't let that bring me down.
I'd had a good life, a happy life. I had friends, family and most importantly my girlfriend, Lea.
You'd think I'd be more devastated to lose all of that, but having known all my life that I'd die young gave me more than enough time to prepare for it.
And I knew, today was the day.
Today was my day!
My name is Jay, son of Zeus, wielder of σχίζω-ἀστεροπή and heir of Olympus. And this is where my story ends, at least that's what I thought.
Me and Lea were standing at the bottom of Mount Othrys. The Titan Fortress was just above us. I could see Kronos staring down at us. He threw his Scythe like a boomerang but i quickly snatched Lea up and zapped away. We reached a path to the top of the mountain. The fact that there was an empty path should have thrown me off but my thoughts were elsewhere.
When we got to the top Kronos was gone. I didn't notice his presence until time literally slowed down. He jumped at me from behind but this time i was prepared. Chiron had told me what to do. I charged my fists up with as much electricity as I could and smashed it into the ground sending a schockwave into Kronos and unfortunately also Lea.
It did it's job though breaking Kronos time spell. I quickly activated σχίζωἀστεροπή to block a strike aimed at my head. I tried to attack but Kronos was swinging his Scythe wildly and I had to keep ducking, jumping and zapping away.
I internally smirked when I saw Lea standing up behind Kronos and preparing to stab him. I tried to distract him further by charging straight at him. To my suprise he didn't seem baffled, instead he was was smiling knowingly at me. That's when I realized he knew what was going on. I tried to scream, to warn Lea but he had placed me in his time spell once again.
I could only stand by and watch as Kronos swiftly turned around and tried to decapitate her. Luckily Lea was a better fighter than he had expected and blocked the strike with her shield. She kept that up, tiring Kronos out, but I knew it was only a matter of time before he would land a hit on her.
I felt the time spell fading but decided to wait for it to be completely gone to get the jump on him. That was the biggest mistake of my life. I saw Kronos feint a strike to her left, when she went to block he just dropped his Scythe into the ground. Using her confusion to his advantage, he summoned a dagger in his right hand and stabbed her right in the heart.
I saw her shocked face.
I saw her fall to the ground.
I saw Kronos kick her off the cliff.
I wanted to scream, but my throat was as dry as the desert. I wanted to jump after her but my body was frozen in place. I looked up to see Kronos smiling madly. Then I lost it. I lost control of my own body and was consumed by an aura of pure energy.
I never found out what happened. I heard Kronos had been banished to Tartarus again. I heard I had stopped the rise of the Titans. I heard that mount Othrys was shattered into a million pieces.
The only thing I know is that I died that day.
