20. Everything starts getting easier - well, kinda!

She gripped her sword a little tighter.


"Please don't hurt me!" she cried. "Please, please, I'll do anything - please don't hurt me!" she started crying in the hope that her performance would become more realistic. It did apparently. She heard one of the creatures come slightly closer. "Aww cute! The little one's scared! Forget half, I'm having her all! I can taste the scared little girl already." Helena made sure her face was concealed before she smirked. "Please, please don't-" she unsheathed her sword before burying it into the surprisingly close cyclops' chest. He turned into dust instantly but Helena realised, the minotaur was more dangerous than the Cyclops. And, it was vastly approaching her. She started becoming the scared little girl she acted as. The minotaur faced Helena, he lowered his head, and had his menacing horns now facing Helena. "I was wrong about you, little girl. Didn't think you had that in you. Guess you probed me wrong, huh? That was pretty stupid, don't you think?" the minotaur said. Helena wasn't sure what she should really do this time and she wasn't sure she'd quite make it.


The minotaur leaped for Helena, in the hopes that it wouldn't skewer her like a kebab, she quickly jumped to the side, and the minotaur's horns missed her by centimetres. Helena suddenly realised she was on the floor and that the creature was advancing fast. She groaned slightly. Why the Hades do I always get myself into these situations? I should probably visit a counsellor to try and stop being so impulsive. It was idiotic for Helena to start thinking about that when she was in a situation like the one she needed to start avoiding. She decided that she should be paying more attention to what was going on in front of her. At an appropriate time too, as the minotaur had been watching her and finally decided to attack. Helena was standing and so she thought it would be possible for her to kill the minotaur far easier than if she were on the ground. And so, the minotaur leaped for Helena yet again, but Helena was tired and her burst of adrenaline from the fear was gone and replaced by annoyance. Therefore, the minotaur's attempt was successful and Helena found herself on her back on the ground with the minotaur laying atop of her, both of its horns on either side of Helena's head. The minotaur had the upper hand in the fight. Or so Helena thought.


She reached for her sword remembering that she had dropped it nearby to where she now lay. She could feel the handle. She could also feel the minotaur's nostrils flare close to her own nose. She needed a way to reach the sword. A way so it wouldn't make it as obvious to the minotaur. She considered moving her upper body. Like maybe her arm. She slightly scooted down. The minotaur was too close to Helena's face to see her move and was trying to rip his horns out of the solid floor. She could finally reach her sword's handle. She tried getting free, but the minotaur was too heavy, and any attempt would set him in pursuit of Helena even more. She tried again. The minotaur noticed, and just happened to get his horns out of the ground at that moment.
