Wolf within Chapter 4: Flames Of Hades
As they their breaths become heavy they stumble to a stop. Jim strode In front of an stranded town "how's many humans have they murdered?" He scoffs, all the roads that were in sight, empty, not a single person in sight it's beginning to worry them "hello?!" Ariel pleaded, she gasps as her voice echoes through the empty ghost town "Jim!" She screamed her voice sounded dry and hoarse "I know." He sighs, and calls out again there was a reply, a small cry sounded like a scream of an angered cat "it's eris!" He whispers as he pulls the girls behind a house and put his hand on the coarse wall paint that smelled like Burnt animal fur.
"Fools! How could they turn against me when I took them in and fed them?" She pauses "so this is how they repay me,huh?" Then Jim heard a small litter patter of feet, that must be clopin "I'm sorry mistress, I'll find them right away." Said he in his cold raspy voice. Esmeralda inches closer, the Jewels on her skirt clanked against the wall, she winces "I hope they didn't hear that.." Jim and Ariel nod "is that Esmeralda I hear?... Come out deary."clopin hissed. Esmeralda silently cursed and went around the back inadvertently making more noise "no Esmeralda stay here." Commanded ariel "I gave us away I must go somewhere else to divert his path." She grumbled, ariel looked at Jim, he paused "let her go, she will be fine." Jim holds Ariel's hand. Esmeralda nodded as Jim nods at her "but what if clopin turns into that thing..." She hid her face.jim looks at her in confusion "what thing?" He widens his eyes curiously "he..." She gulps "tell me I can take it." He firmly holds her hands "he..."she gasps, he turns into a vicious black dragon.but this is no normal dragon.
Black as night are his wings and red menacing eyes that stared right into your soul, ariel quivers in fear "ariel stay behind me!" Jim grows forcing her behind him."you won't lay a claw on her! Or I'll kick your big dragon butt!"he barks "well, James Hawkins that's not very nice." Clopin patronized, Jim sneered and growled, bearing his sharp teeth he gets on his hands and knees, a glowing blue light danced around him gently spinning him up in the air, Jim transforms, the light turns to blue a flame tornado as he spins and lands on the ground.jim didn't look like the same wolf as he was before he was white, with glowing blue flames upon his white fur, his eyes glowed even a brighter blue than the bluest moon.jim looks apron himself seeing that his paws were white and had glowing blue claws 'what just happend?' He thought, clopin and eris gasped in complete shock "you're..... The ischyró éna.." Eris said shocked."what? What does that mean?!" Eris rolled her eyes and pounced on Jim biting at his neck "I'll never tell you, you brat!" She roared. she tugs and tugs at Jim's neck as he barks and whimpers as her teeth clench tighter.he pulls away ripping a huge chunk of skin, Jim growls, his wound heals, he breaths deeply and barks so loud it could damage any nearby humans hearing, blue flames shot out of his mouth scorching eris. eris looks at him angrily and attempts to get up but fails, she looks at clopin and he takes to the sky with a big flaps of his large demon like wings and hisses.
Jim stares thinking of a way out of this "a ischyró éna is the powerful one,young man and that's apparently what you are." His voice low and demonic voice chilled Jim to the bone "what do you mean." Clopin smiled mockingly and flew closer "you were born as the chosen one to save all animal-humans and humans. The powerful one was said to be a pure white wolf that glow blue and have extraordinary powers." He hissed slowly "is that why eris picked me up in the first place? And the reason she tried to destroy me?!" Clopin flies over Jim, looking down upon him, he smiles devilishly "yes James..." He mocks, ariel transforms and barks ready for battle " let's go Jim!" She yelled.jim nods and the both attack biting at his wings pulling him down, he yelped as thier teeth clench down upon his leathery wings.ariel steps on his neck and pins him down "now now ariel.." He persuaded "you wouldn't kill your old friend clopin right?" She looked at him with great fire in her eyes "yes I would kill." She smiles evilly, she pounces on him and gouges both his eyes out of his head.
Clopin screamed in agonizing pain as his sockets bled black blood, ariel took that moment and pinned him to the ground and ripped at his neck until clopin passed out, ariel spits out a black sphere " there... You'll be alright now clopin." She smiled as she laid her hands on him, and chanted some kind of prayer. Then water surrounded clopin and lifted him in the air, healed his wounds and turned him back to a human, he hands in Ariel's arms. Ariel sniffles covering his nude body with her cloak "the evil that has been put upon you is no more, my friend." She smiles as she strokes his hair nursing him back to health.
Jim impressed nodded in approval and turned towards eris and growls, his new discovered form glows blue" now for you eris..." Growled Jim, he climbs on eris, she struggles but he has his claws I braved in her arms "I'll never surrender.." She screamed, Jim widens his eyes as he came to the realization that eris must have the same thing in her neck "she's too far gone Jim, it's too late for her the darkness has consumed her." Ariel shouted. Jim nodded and got uncomfortably close to eris and he asked "who is turning our kind into these human eating monsters?! I demand to know." He raises his paw ready to strike if she didn't "what are you going to do young man? Kill me? Isn't that stooping to my level? " " no it isn't because you are trying to kill all of the humans on earth, how is killing the true murderer stooping to thier level? If it is, you deserve it."he barked with dazzling glowing blue eyes "fine I'll tell you, it's hades who is behind all of this evil...I don't know where he is but..."she paused agrivated "what?! Tell me!" He barked he bears his teeth.
Eris gulps and rolls her eyes and speaks "your parents know hades location." Jim backs off shocked "what?... T-they're dead." "That's where you were tricked young man they live, they just um..they were captured by hades there's no telling what happend to them." "Then how are they alive?" Jim asked very confused "hades can capture the living he's done it before ." Jim puzzled sits down "the how are we gonna get to the underworld? Don't you have globe a demigod to enter on purpose?" Eris rolled her eyes "not exactly anyone can enter as long as they have a demigod with them." Eris looks at ariel "ariel?" Ariel nods "I'm the daughter of trident, which is another name for Poseidon." She smiles "we should bring another demigod, maybe we can bring my cousin Hercules ?" Jim's eyes widen " what? Hercules? Like THE Hercules?!" "Yup, he's really nice." Ariel gasps and points behind Jim. The smell of brimstone and fire filled the town, a foul smell, so foul Jim turned human and covered his nose with his jacket. Jim turns around and eris is on fire , her blood curdling scream filled thier ears, it filled thier hearts with fear. "Eris! No! " screams Jim, he still had more questions. Questions like, where is Hercules? Jim cursed and screamed at ariel "use your water powers and put it out!" She does some gesture that looked like kungfu then water came from the lake behind her, she threw it at the fires around eris, the fire isn't going out.
Jim agape as he watches ariel attempt to put out the fire that's unnatural blue color "it's fire from hades!!" Ariel panicked "what?!" "The fire of hades cannot be put out! It's so hot it's boiling my water, and my hands!" She screams and drops her stream of water and looks at her boil infested ands and cries "ariel! Can you heal yourself?" He ran to her side, he picks her up "yes get me to the lake!" She screams in pain, her hands were so boiled her hands didn't look like hands anymore it looked like a burnt piece of rolled up bubble wrap.jim runs to the cool lake and sat her on the edge, he heard a male voice say "my daughter, thank you for saving her" thought there was no one in sight except him and ariel, the water flowed over her like a backwards water fountain, she didn't get wet from the water which Jim thought was pretty cool. Her hands slowly returned to normal, she sighed with relieve then rubbed her hands together greatfull her hands were back.
Jim quickly carried ariel back to where eris was still burning but her screaming ceased, she's gone, clopin still lay unconscious next to a building, something strange happend a figure appeared in the flames "hades..." Jim said resentfully "ah so this is Ariel's girlfriend nice to meet you." He smugly laughed, Jim furrowed his brows "just kidding I know your a guy...loosen up man, your just like your parents." Then two figures a man and a women appear, Jim looked just like his dad except his father had grey hair and a beard, his mother looked just like Jim pictured her, long brown hair, blue eyes very pretty lady but both his parents didn't look thier best. They're hair was messed up and singed at the ends "mom? Dad?" They smiled wearily. Hades looks at Jim and smirks "I won't tell you where to go to fine me." "How will I find you then." Hades cackles "figure it out!" The fire extinguishes in a flash, like it wasn't even there in the first place. In it's place, was a charred corpse of eris. Jim felt bad she had to perish that way, however she did deserve it.ariel stands to her feet,brushes herself off and strolled to Jim's side "I know how to fine hades follow me,first where is esmeralda?" Jim shrugs"im not sure" esmeralda shows her face from behind a church "that was amazing you guys." she smiles ,she pulls an object out of her pocket."what is that?" jim asks, she opens her hand, the object was a cross "I thought this might come in handy in hades so i went into the church." they all laugh "thats genius." says jim "thanks, so lets go find Hercules." esmeralda exclaimed, jim and ariel nod in agree ment. They walked down the gravel road hand in hand.
