Short Story History – Zyathien and the Triton of Poseidon
Long ago when man worshiped gods and gods believed in humanity the gods came down from the heavens and made personal relationships with the mortal women who gave birth to children known as demi-gods half human half God.the gods gave birth to many children but it was one demi-god who was going to go down in history as the first to turn on the heaven’s.
Across the vast lands on a old farm a women gave birth to a boy, during her delivery she perished once he entered the world. As the child cries filled the air alone travelers could not help but notice the sorrows of a child. The traveler came into the ruins and noticed the child by the mortal remains and picked the child up and wrapped him up in a soft cloth he found beneath the frivolous body. He said from here on you will be known as Zyathien. Why zyathien – prince of hope, strength and finding your way etc.
In time as the child came of age the old man had passed.zyathien was on his own. At the age of 8 zyathien came part of society in the city of modur causeing havoc stealing and turning the kingdom into his playground.zyathien had no memory of his mother and only a faint memory of the old man as time passed the boy made a friend name Turk that lived in the streets of the kingdom just like him the two broke rules of the city and made a complete mess of things.
Not long after that the king banished the two boys to the out lands and told them never to return.the first day in the out lands zyathien and Turk came upon the woods outside the kingdom zythian spoke
“there is another city just beyond these woods”
Turk shared the same passion of troublemaking as zyathien but not the same bravery.Turk said in a brave but soft spoken voice
“I heard story’s about those woods anybody that has went in those woods never returned”
zyathien spoke has my dear friend spirit of adventure been replaced with that of a mouse” “no” Turk replied
zyathien spoke “well lets go and make our way thru the woods an onto to the city”
as they approached the woods a old stopped in the front of them-
“beware the creature that lies in the middle of the woods”‘
Turk said cre cre creature he quickly looked at zyathien and seen what the man had spoken to them did not make zyathien any less braver than what he already was
“move old man we are going in”
“zyathien ” spoke any creature that lies in the middle of those woods should be afraid for I don’t believe in or seen such things your story doesn’t shake my spirit old man.the old man paused and began walking and slowly turned around and spoke again heed my warning beware the creature in the woods”
Turk and zyathien entered the woods. Turk couldn’t help but notice the dark damp woods covered with dead leaves “zyathien” Turk spoke
“do u think what the old man was telling us is the truth,I got a bad feeling about this place” Turk spoke.
“hush” zyathien spoke softly you hear that somethings coming right at us.footsteps and crackling of old branches that laid on the ground of the woods that was once distance became Closer and closer
“Turk watch out!” zyathien yelled “watch out’!

zyathien then whispered to Turk stay down the foot steps came from a distance and got closer zyathien swung the thick branch and hit what appeared to be a man but the lower body of a goat next to the goat was a pitch fork very unique silver with carvings engraved into the pitch fork which looked like the ocean tides.zyathien approached the fork Turk yelled “no you don’t know what it is it could be dangerous”
zyathien looked at Turk and spoke dangerous and danger is what we live for my friend. zyathien stepped over the creature and reached for the staff before he touched the staff the creature jumped up and yelled “no!” Zyathien grabbed the Triton and before his eyes a huge lighting bolt flashed in the front of his eyes and what seemed to shake the Forrest only had blinded zyathien for a second as zyathien vision started to clear and what he seen was a man covered on gold platted armor with a cape as white as the clouds in the heavens
