Chapter One: The Meeting
''Hey Hermes! Zeus has called a meeting!'' Aries called to the messenger from at the bottom of the stairway. ''Coming!'' Hermes yelled back and then ran down the stairs. Then the two headed to the place that Zeus intended them to go. ''What do you think he wants?'' asked Aries. ''I havent the slightest clue.'' replied Hermes. Aries sighed and put his hands behind his head, ''Who else do you think'll be there?''
''Most likely Hera, Hestia, Poseidon, Aphrodite, Apollo, Demeter, and Hades. If its an actual meeting, none of the other minors will be there.''Aries put his hands to his sides and said, ''Well not all of the others are minor. Take Medusa for example.'' At that, Hermes shuddered. ''I hate her!''
''Exactly why I mentioned her.'' Aries chuckled and ducked when Hermes aimed a hit at his head. When Hermes was gonna try and hit him again, Aries pointed ahead and said, ''Look! We're almost there!''
Hermes looked where the other was pointing and they where in fact almost to the meeting place. ''About time, it took forever.''
''It didn't take that long.'' Hermes looked at him with an 'Are you kidding me?' look on his face and Aries sighed. They reached the giant door leading to the room and opened the average sized door that is hidden in the giant door and walked into the building. They looked around and Hermes guess was correct. The people he thought where gonna be there where there.
''Aries. Hermes. Please take your seats and the meeting will begin shortly.'' Zeus spoke up from his throne. The two did as they where told and they waited for about 1 minute and a half until...Dionysus and Hephaestus showed up? ''I guess this isn't a normal meeting...'' Aries pointed out to Hermes. ''I guess you're right for once...''
''Hey!'' Hermes rolled his eyes and once Dionysus and Hephaestus sat down, Nyx and Erebus walked in and sat down. After them, came Mosiah and Orpheus and they sat down and then a few several more others came until a god they didn't expect to see arrived.
The blackette shifted uncomfortably when all the eyes were set on him, and laughed nervously, "Hey guys, how's it going? Um...could you all not like, stare at me all at once? Please? I would appreciate it..."
"Thanatos. Take a seat." said Zeus as he motioned his hand over to Thanatos's assigned chair. Said god gave a thumbs up and went to go sit down.
Zeus scanned the area, making sure that everyone's attention was on him and stood up to indicate he was going to talk. "Gods and Goddesses. Residents of the Underworld and Mount Olympus. I have called you here today for a very important reason. Because of your recent behavior to each other causing a great effect in everyone's daily lives, I have decided to take the responsibility to present a punishment that I, if I do say so myself, think is quite humorous." He decided to pause to add some dramatic effect, "You will be attending a High School!"
The room erupted in disagreement and protest and Zeus chuckled, "A lot of you needn't worry. Only a few who I think really need to be punished, will be." Once the room quieted down, he continued, "I will be reading names off of this list," he held up a piece of paper, "and the ones who are not said, you may leave the room. The ones that are, stay where you are."
He cleared his throat and began reading the names off the list, "Poseidon, Eros, Aries, Hermes, Dionysus, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Hypnos, Thanatos, Orpheus, and Nemesis. But everyone else do not leave just yet. I have more to call on, but not for punishment. Its to watch those who are being punished so they do not get in trouble." He pulled out another piece of paper and began reading off of that one, "Athena, Mosiah, Hestia, Hera, Nyx, and Hades. Everyone else may leave now."
A huge group of people left with murmurs and mutters of relief that their name wasn't called and once everyone that had been allowed to leave, the ones who had to stay groaned and some *coughThanatosandAriescough* started banging their head on the table repetitively. "I don't see why we have to babysit them!" Hades exclaimed to Zeus.
"And I don't see why I have to be punished!" yelled Poseidon, "I only tried to break up the fights!"
"Yeah, by trying to spear my head with your damn trident!" Thanatos yelled at Poseidon. "Hey! I wanna argue to!" Nemesis interjected.
Zeus sighed and clapped his hands together so that it made an echoing sound to interrupt their...'conversation'. "That is enough of that. If you continue like this, you will not be able to even last a single day in a High School. Now, one more thing I need to take care of before you head off, is your names. All of the people on Earth know of us and I am pretty sure there are no normal people named after Greek Gods and Goddesses so I need to give you human names." he pulled out yet another piece of paper, "Thanatos, you will be known as Riley McKinnley. Athena, you will be known as Emelia Conner. Hestia, you will be known as Natalie Knight. Hera, you will be known as Alex Daniels. Nemesis, you will be known as Nathan Jensen. Orpheus, you will be known as Noah Morgan. Nyx, you will be known as Allison McKinnley. Hermes, you will be known as Kristopher Turner. Aries, you will be known as Cody Daniels. Hades, you are Vincent Perez. Poseidon, you're Remy Anderson. Hephaestus, you're Jonathon Daniels. Dionysus, you're Erik Allens. Mosiah, you're Oliver Morgan. Eros, you're Troy Wilkerson. Hypnos, you're Jonathon McKinnley. Apollo, you're Rodney Hanson. And Aphrodite, you're Cecelia Price. Got it?"
A few shook their heads and Thanatos gave a thumbs down. Zeus sighed and said, "Fine, I'll make name tags or something. But from now on, call each other by your human names so you wont accidentally call each other your actual names when you're on Earth. So do you all at least remember your own name?"
Everyone nodded and he sent them off to get ready for their journey and punishment to a high school. Oh what a wonderful time this will be.
