Cassandra was ruminating on the balcony of her room, looking at the view around her. The wide blue sea full of ships and boats coming to and fro from many places always mesmerized her. So many people went about their works, continuing their daily lives. But, her life was different. She has been a prisoner for the last five days. She was trapped in this beautifully decorated room like a doll in a case. She repulsed it. Everything around her disgusted her. Any other time, she would have loved to sleep on this feathery bed, smell the salted air of the sea, and gazed at the valley beyond which illuminated with the rays of the morning sun. she missed her home, her simple cot in the precinct of the temple, she missed her father and his pat on her head. Mostly she missed her brother. Throughout her life, she had been an ardent devotee of Athena and Apollo. Why did they do this to her?Karseus visited her every day, drunk and high, and coaxed her into submission. But she stood fix up
Argus moved closer. Selene knew what was coming. Her heart pounded in her throat, echoing through her entire body as she lifted her hand and placed it on the warm expanse of his half-open bare chest to stop him from moving forward.Time stopped and the world shrunk and she was caught up in a moment of wild ecstasy. All reservations broke loose and all limitations cracked when Argus held her close. Hard and quick with strong arms enfolding her, he brought her up against his tall frame as he bent his head. Selene met his lips hungrily, leaving all her shame and embarrassment behind.Their mouth closed and fought, his tongue strong and battling with her. She had him under her hands, her fingers against the warm skin of his neck, the damp fringe of his hair, pulling his chiton open.Argus lifted her and slammed her onto the wall. He swept her into his arms and kissed her soundly. She accepted his command and answered w
Throughout the day Argus worked and trained with the Kraken soldiers. They were known for their brutality with swords. The way they whirled and twirled the piece of the blade was enthralling to watch. They were lethal with flexible bodies and indomitable spirits. Clytus had sent messages all around the kingdom, to all the tribes who honored Karmen to join for the common cause. Many of them arrived with their phalanx and regiments. Argus was revered by all. His capacity and aura initiated a sense of respect among the people. His gravity to tackle every situation, his manners and his compassion for the people of krakens earned him a name. Everyone desired him as their leader. He was a truly worthy heir of Karmen. On one hand, he behaved like a baby when he played with the children of the tribe and on the other hand he was a fierce warrior who gave hardcore back-breaking training. From being a son of a priest, he wolfed into the king that he was destined to be. This was how the Three S
The journey to Corinth began at the first light of dawn. Fabian was equipped with all the necessary paraphernalia. He was still limping a bit. Maybe a day or two and his leg would be fine as before. He has chosen Theseus and two other best Kraken spies: Olus and Hermes, twin brothers. According to the plan, they would reach Corinth and try to know the political situations out there. They would disguise themselves as fishermen and traders and would blend among the Corinthians.Corinth was also known as Ephyra, after the daughter of titan Oceanus, lord of the ocean who was later overthrown by Poseidon. The biggest port of Corinth Magna Graecia was known for having the largest docks in the country. People from Athens, Cyprus, and the Levant arrived in Corinth through that port and set up business and trades. Fabian and his group too would join these bunch of traders and step foot into the city. Then they would manipulate and bribe the sentries and guards of the castle and
“ May I come in?”, asked a young girl standing on the threshold of Cassandra’s room.“ Yes please”, Cassandra replied. She was combing her long hair, standing before a large human-sized gilded mirror. The hot water bath has soothed her senses and cleared her mind. Father always used to say “ proper bath and food could solve any problem”. He was right. A few hours before, Cassandra was panicking. Now she was relaxed and calmed. She trusted her visions. She had faith in her lord and her brother. No matter what happened, he would surely come to save her.The girl came in. she was wearing a full-length white fustanella, her hair was neatly tied into a bun on top of her head. She had a pair of beautiful eyes and a pointed nose.“ My name is Myra. I stay and work here”. Saying this she placed a tray on the table. There were some herbs, bandages, and a bowl of clean water.“ What are these for”, C
“ He is keeping her as a prisoner”, cried, Argus. “ How dare he? How dare he does that? Doesn’t he fear death?”, he clenched his fist and unsheathed his sword.“ Argus! Argus”, Selene came up to him and tried to calm him down. “ Do not let your anger take control over you. Calm down. We have to think about it. You can't decide with blood boiling in your sinews”.He was breathing deeply. He closed his eyes and tried to subside his anger. After a few seconds, Argus looked a bit normal and his breathing became more relaxed.“ You are right. Anger won't help me to rescue her. We have to think of a plan. A strategy”.Selene nodded. She looked at Theseus and asked,” what do you know about the place ?”-“ There is a very big fort near the sea with an underground prison. It was built by King Phillip. Hundreds of guards are guarding the area. Karseus has started amassi
“What did you say? I would die after 15 days”, Karseus broke into a laugh. He laughed hysterically and so did his friends. All tumbling and clutching their tummies in laughter.“Friends, did you hear that? I would die after 15 days”, he mocked at her.“ No, Karseus you would be beheaded”, Morpheus rectified him.They were all jeering and catcalling at her. Cassandra simply smiled. She knew whatever visions Apollo showed her would happen in real too.“ Fine”, she snapped.“Fine, if you still don’t trust me, it's fine. You can have me, my body, and my soul after 15 days.”“ Really?” karseus was amazed at whatever Cassandra said.” Are you sure of this?”“Yes, I am sure. After 15 days from today, I am all yours if you stay alive.”“ Princess Cassandra, you better get ready then”, mocked Morpheus. “A hundred soldiers
“ He was a good man. A good father to all of us”, said Clytus, the most trusted man of Karmen. The good leader’s body was being washed and decorated with jewels and perfumed clothes to travel to Afterlife. His funeral rites were to be held in the Athenian way.
