Excerpt:

(Enjoy!!:D)

     The sound of metal clashing against the floor made Eris frown – she was taking longer than she meant to – and she had to escape, with Set or not. She tapped one of her feet impatiently on the floor.

     New guards were coming.

     It was time to get out or risk being caught.

     She swiftly decided to take a new approach – a desperate one, yes, but she was on the edge. “Set. Don’t you miss the adventure? The feeling of being the best of them? I can give you that pleasure. Just come with me.”

     Getting up, Set sighed. “It had better be worth it.” 

     Biting at bait Eris set forth was never a wise thing to do. But considering his options, what was worse- Eris or a prison where he would live forever?

     Eris put her hand inside of the cell, offering it to Set, and he promptly refused. Sighing, she in-stead waved her hand through the air, and the stones of his cage started to fall apart, leaving a hole for him to exit. Set smiled and stood up, cleaning the dust from his clothes.

     The other prisoners were very agitated now – they were very loud, thrusting their hands outside their cages, trying to grasp on to Eris and Set.

     The duo started running as quickly as they could towards the exit door, passing over two unconscious guards. Their exit wasn’t very far, and they pushed harder. They were suddenly cut off as guards emerged with weapons drawn, closing off their portal. Leading the group was Sif, angrier than ever, her eyes on fire as she stared furiously at Eris.

     She nodded to the guards and commanded loudly, “Don’t let them escape.”

     She was staring at Eris, smiling and shaking her head. Trials of blood had dried over her eye-brows and chin. She ignored it, letting the spear dance between her hands.
