Archie took his time walking back to Brownstone. After all what was the point
Archie shivered and zipped his blue hoodie all the way. It had started to
get colder these past few days even though it was only the beginning of
September. Summer had definetly come to an end.
Just as Archie was leaving the park he stopped. Something shiny in the long
grass caught his eye. He bent over to observe the strange object more clearly.
He hesitently picked it up. It was some sort of pendent, similar to his own
but it was silver, not gold. This pendent was a little bit heavier and instead of
a circular disc it was shaped like a diamond.
Archie stood up, still observing his strange little discovery. His first
thought was to bring it home and show it to the others. He doubted any normal
person could have lost it since no one wore these kind of pendents anymore (aside
from sevens teenagers- I think you know who I'm talking about). But he stayed put
getting more and more curious about the pendent with every second he spent
starring at it. It wouldn't hurt to try it on, would it?
After looking around to make sure no one was watching him - he was a guy
after all and he didn't want to be seen trying it on, since men don't wear
necklaces - and put the pendent's chain around his neck.
The pendent felt much lighter around his neck then in his hands. The chain
was ice cold against his skin. So cold he almost yanked it off but he couldn't.
Suddenly he didn't feel the coldness of the chain against his neck. He
couldn't feel, or think. What was happening? Why did he feel nothing? No
emotions, no coldness, no pain, nothing. Something was happening to him. He
tried to move but he couldn't control himself. He couldn't yank the pendent off
his neck. He could only manage to smack himself across the face, to make sure it
wasn't a nightmare, but he couldn't feel it. He couldn't feel pain.
He saw something move out of the corner of his eye. A black hole? No, a
portal. Cronus! Normally he would have brought out his whip to fight but he
couldn't. He had no control over himself. Cronus could only laugh as he watched
Archie struggle to gain control of himself.
" Give it up, you fool, you are in my control now!"
Rather than pass a snide comment as he would have done in his normal state,
Archie stopped strugging and stood up straight and looked Cronus in the eye.
" What do yo want me to do, master? " he asked.
" Excellent," said Cronus.
In case your wondering i made up the whole pendent.
Hope you liked his chapter. More will come soon.
