F ebr U ary - Valentines Day competition

My name is Eron, pronounced, "Air-on". It's really Eros, but I gotta keep cover, people study about me. Most people would know me as Cupid and well, that is true. Every February - gross - I find 5 people their true loves. IF I don't find their true loves, my grandfather, Zeus, punishes me by taking away my wings and bow for the rest of my life. Do I get anything good out of it? Nope, just me doing a favor for everyone else.

14. Chapter 12: The verge of death

It was the next day and I’m literally about to kill myself. Everyone’s getting even more serious with this Valentine stuff. There are hearts on strings above me everywhere on the streets as a decoration. Then a little girl ran up to me with her tiny heart outfit and offered me a rose. I reluctantly took it even though I didn’t want to. She grinned at me before she walked away. After she left, I trashed the flower like an asshole.

            I saw my mom flirting with some rose-selling man. He was buff, ugly, and looked like a cow. I just judge people right away and honestly it wasn’t a problem. I walked up to my mom and her new 3-day fling.

“Hey, mom.” I greeted, shoving my hands in my pocket.

“Oh – Eron! This is Mr. Hyrcanus, he’s a math teacher at your school.” She said, introducing him to me.

“Hello Eron, pleased to meet you.”

“Cool,” I replied, walking away. My mom raised her hands and yelled at me, “Eron Hart! What on earth are you doing? Get back here!”

            I just kept walking along. Sometimes I just had enough of my other. She needs to control her adult- hormones. People would expect me to be the horny one. By the time I reached the end of the street, a pink confetti blizzard started to harass me.

“Fuck it, I’m out.” I said as I dipped onto the first subway I saw. It wasn’t crowded at all. Usually there’s no space to even walk, but today there were only three girls on board. I started to notice who they were. Priya’s minions.

“Hello, Eron.” One of them greeted. She had dark brown hair and green eyes. The other girls looked similar but had black hair, and another had blonde hair.

“Uh, hi,” I replied uncomfortably.

“Is your love coming to light yet?” The black haired one asked me. I shook my head in confusion.

“What do you mean?”

“It means, did you finish your task?” The light one said. I widened my eyes. They know what I am. I tried and exit the subway, but the door closed fast. Faster than the blink of an eye.

“Why leave?” They all said at the same time. I groaned and turned around.

“How do you know?”

“Because we’re the muses.” They all said at once again.

            The muses? What the hell is a “Muse?” Obviously, they weren’t mortal. I bit my lip and tried to escape the door. I heard them all giggle a creepy giggle. How can Priya hang out with such psychopaths?

“What the hell are the ‘Muses’?”

“We can see the future. We can predict deaths.” They said again at the same time. It was kind of annoying. There was a sudden breeze that rustled through my blonde hair.

“Okay – well if were going to talk, could you not talk at the same time? It’s Hella creepy.” I said, sitting down.

“Sure.” The blonde one perks. She was suddenly in a valley girl mood, while the others were the exact same.

“No. I’m not even close to finished with my task.” I grumped, leaning back in my seat. The brown haired one sits next to me.

“What about Artina and Henry. Then you could put Henry and Priya together as well.” She suggested. I scoffed at this.

“What the fuck? No! that’s not true love.”

“It is if the arrow is involved...” The black haired one snickered. I was uncomfortable.

“So what you’re saying is, I should make them have the worst relationship’s in all of life?”

            They all gave me an evil grin. A grin so evil, that Harry would be scared of them. Harry is pretty evil for being the god of the underworld. My phone buzzes.


Priya: What’s your favorite food?


Me: I enjoy Chinese.

“Priya Bloom.” The blonde one said. I jumped and shoved my phone in my pocket. The whole time I was texting her, I was grinning, and they were watching. They know I like Priya and they’re probably going to tell her now.

“Don’t say a word to her or I’ll shoot you all.” I threatened, pulling out my tiny arrows. They giggled.

“You can’t kill us.” The dark haired one said. I tilted my head.

“What, you guys are invincible?” I asked, lowering my weapon.

“Honey, we create the deaths. And you’re is just around the corner.”

            I froze. My death was just around the corner? I’ve been doing everything – most things right! I have two true loves and a half which is good...right...? These girls that hung around Priya often seemed to know their shit.

“How can I prevent it?” I asked, standing up and holding a bar to keep steady.

“Finish your task.”

            When I got off I was in some sort of china town. Everything was stringy and there were no hearts, or signs of valentines anywhere. This was heaven and I think I’m going to stay here for a while before my mom texts me thinking I ran away. Nearby, there was a tool sharpening place. I went in and handed the dude three of my golden arrows.

“sharpen them.” I ordered, slamming my fist a little over-dramatically on the counter as he gave me a dirty look, “sorry.” I muttered after.

            I had a plan. Sacrifice was a part of it. I’m going to summon Artina and Henry to the cave along with Priya because I’m meeting Priya there. I’ll hide in the cave ceilings and shoot. Then, they’d all fall in love. It would be weird, but maybe I’ll get over Priya by then.


Can’t go a February without a true love, right?
