I remembered very little about my life. What I could recall was a string of disappointments, mostly. I hadn’t learned Korean like my mom had wanted me to, I had only been kissed once, I hadn’t applied myself in school. But another thing I knew, something I could be proud of was that I had always been fast.
But if I was fast, this thing chasing me was definitely faster.
It wasn’t a fair race, of course. Whatever sort of venom it carried in its needle sharp fangs was nasty - bad enough that, yes, it could probably kill a god, especially a young god like myself. If it could get a hold of me, that is. It had surprised me before, but I was doing my damndest now to make sure that didn’t happen again.
The cards were stacked against me. I was in the underworld and so, way out of my element. The air here was thick, like breathing through a cotton ball. I felt lost, powerless. How could I even attempt to plan an escape from this thing if I didn’t know where I was? The most frustrating part was that I had let that monster herd me down here.
Thinking under pressure. Another thing I knew I hadn’t excelled at in life and nothing had changed after I’d died. Kicking the things butt was also out of the question, I was quick but I was not strong in that way. The Pantheon knew me as a jock, a prankster. Friendly and somebody you’d want at parties, sure, but I wasn’t the person you’d call in to plan or lend a hand in a fight.
The shadow behind me growled. It may have been my imagination, but I swore I could feel it’s warm, acrid breath on my back. It had gained on me and I was tiring quickly. Endurance was more my sister’s game and I could’ve really used her about now. We were better together, everyone said so. But, as she’d told me once: Thor would sooner die than be caught in the Underworld (not literally, of course, because then the point would be moot).
