18. Brazeedas's New Weapon

 

Brazeedas stood, trying to look poised and confident. He gulped, and shook. His hand was shaky and cold. His feet where a dirt factory, his face was filthy. He saw Goliath in the distance. Then suddenly he began to smile.

   “You are late Goliath!” Brazeedas shouted, “Are you afraid?”

   “Not in the slightest!” Goliath laughed, “I was talking to my friends, will you banish me for this? And anyway, I guess you don’t have any friends.”

   “I don’t need them, why are they useful?”

   “Strength, motivation, something or someone to live for in my case.”

   “Well that settles it, I am nothing like you. You are weak and feeble.” Goliath eyed Brazeedas’s grimy face.

“Oh look, you have been roaming around in the mud like a pig? Your ugly face gives you away.”

   “Don’t try to change the subject because of your fear. Are we going to settle this, or keep talking so you can get out of this?” Goliath raised his eyebrows. Brazeedas took a sword out of his belt and stopped.

   “You have no sword, how will you fight? You might as well return to Sparta, or let me slice your head clean off!”

   “If you were a man of decency, you would lend me one of your swords. Or are you such a coward that you want to cheat?” Brazeedas said nothing. He tossed Goliath a sword, and he caught it with ease.

   “Right,” he said, “May the best man win.”   They stood, three metres apart, slowly turning in a circle, waiting for the other one to move. Then Brazeedas stood up and laughed.

“Why do you laugh? Get on with it!” Goliath stood up too, and thought of what trick Brazeedas had planned for him, “You have no friends, no food, no water, and no Gods on your side.” Brazeedas just stood and laughed.

“You are so idiotic, Zeus and some of the others may not be on my side, but some of the more, more powerful and dark ones are.”

“Don’t toy with me Brazeedas. Even some of the evilest Gods would never join with you!”

“Maybe they would if they were an enemy to Zeus.”

“What?”

“None other than Zeus’s brother.”

“If it is Poseidon that you speak of, he reduced the waves so me, Septimus and Diolace didn’t drown.”

“A man who can control water is of no use to me.”

“Then who?” Goliath’s eyes widened, “No.”

“None other than.” Brazeedas paused and Goliath waited.

“Spit! It! Out!” Goliath yelled.

“Hades.”
