Favorite excerpt-Mortals, Gods, and a Muse

I thought today I’d share one of my favorite parts of MGM. Hope you enjoy.

I had to keep my mind busy somehow. Tread water. Pray. Breath.

That’s how I did it the first time. The second time, I didn’t spend long in the water and I was fighting and screaming. This time I was going to rant.

“Send me across the world to find a dead man just to send my backside back to the ocean. When I find land, I’m going to eat, sleep, and come after you. I’m going to find as much C-4 as I can a bottle of wine and blow up that place that you call home. I’m going to toss that box in the bottom of the ocean…better yet I’m going to rent a sub, go to the Adriatic fault and drop you in the abyss.”

I kept swimming.

“I’m going to burn every book that has your name in it and make sure you are never heard from again. That goes as much for you Eros as it does for her. The family line is already dead, thanks to your antics. If the world never hears your names again there will be no harm in that.”

I was becoming more energized and focused as I moved. The ocean disappeared and rage was taking over. It felt good.

“I’m going back to Hades, cross that damn river and bring him home. By the time I’m done with this little swim, that river will be nothing. I’m going to take this damn vest with me and…”

My rant was over. I screamed when something grabbed the life jacket.
