EXT. VILLAGE ROAD 3. AFTERNOON.
They are right before a neighboring village when they all get stuck in mud. They have to remove their sandals to get out.
Ew! Why did we go through the mud!
I’m sure there’s a cobbler somewhere
in this area come on.
They find one not too far away from the town’s entrance and walk in.
INT. COBBLER’S HOUSE. AFTERNOON.
NIKE (an old man with a wild beard and misty eyes) comes out from the back room to greet them.
Welcome to my shop! I’m Nike.
Like the goddess?
Yes. My mother thought I’d be
a girl. But I thought it’d be fitting
to become a cobbler.
Nike and shoes…Nah, I don’t see
that catching on.
What can I do for you?
Well, as you can probably see from
our feet we are in need of new shoes.
Ah, so you want to adopt one of my
Try him on.
Ditzia looks a little uncomfortable as he puts on the shoes.
There. He fits you nicely.
(to the shoes)
You’re going to find a good
home today, my dear.
(whispers to heroes)
That is so creepy.
They are for you.
And for you.
And you two are a perfect
I’ve got a special pair for you.
It’s in the back. Please excuse me.
Nike goes to a store room. Some beautiful and seductive singing is heard. Exelda continues to stare at the room where Nike is. Geekius is too busy thinking to notice. Ditzia stares at feet, still creeped out. Narcius and Hypnos are drawn to the music. In a trance, they leave the shop.
At least they’re comfortable, right?
She looks up to where Narcius and Hypnos were standing and notices the two missing.
Where did they go?
They’re in trouble! Let’s go!
Ditzia and Exelda leave.
Wait, where’d everyone go? Don’t
leave me alone with…
Nike comes out.
EXT. VILLAGE ROAD 3. AFTERNOON.
Hypnos and Narcius walk in a trance towards the SIRENS (three beautiful women wearing sexy clothes and make up). Exelda grabs the boys’ togas.
Wait! These are the dangerous
women who make men crash
We’re not on a ship!
They cannot break free of her grip, so they drag Exelda along. Ditzia stands in front of the doorway where the Sirens are standing.
Stop looking at them!
It is enough to break them of their trance and they look away. The Sirens tickle Ditzia, and she falls down. They follow the boys singing and trying even harder to seduce them. The boys hid behind Exelda. Geekius comes out with his fingers in his ears. He too hides.
I’ve got an idea! Someone hit
Exelda his him. He gets knocked out.
Too hard, man. I mean woman.
Narcius picks up a rock and throws it at the Sirens’ direction. It hits one in the eye, and their attitude changes. The boys feel safe looking at them as they examine on of the Siren’s eye. Seeing how she might have a bruise, the girls start growling.
I’m starting to regret my idea…
The Sirens change into snarling beasts (who look like a cat except they are purple and have a hideous face). Exelda picks up a huge rock and throws it at them. One gets knocked out. One takes a swipe at them, and the three who can still move scatter. They keep throwing rocks at them since its seems to be working. The beasts want to fight each of them, but they get confused with stones flying everywhere. Exelda runs out of stones and throws Ditzia at them. One beast is pinned down. Hypnos distracts the last one with his fire. The beast runs and trips over an invisible Geekius. Narcius quickly pins it down while Exelda uses the big rock to kill it. Hypnos kills the knocked out one. Narcius picks up Ditzia while Exelda kills the last one. The town rejoices. Geekius wakes up and they start to leave.
Hey! You forgot to pay me!
Send the bill to Philoles. He
owes us money!
INT. MERCINON’S OFFICE. EVENING.
Mercinon is rather flamboyantly practicing sword fighting. Darius walks in and almost gets slashed.
Woah! You almost killed me!
You really gotta start knocking.
What do you want anyways? Are
you here to tell me how you
screwed you screwed up this time?
We brought down the blonde girl,
and I was so sure the rest of them
Mercinon’s swordplay gets stronger.
What’s your next move?
Well, I found Echinda…
The mother of all monsters! That’s
brilliant! Our regime can continue
I should’ve known there was a but.
Mercinon slashes more.
Hades came and took her for a pet.
So, who are you sending out instead?
I spent all day getting Echinda. Now
it’s too late.
You think you deserve sleep after this?
Mercinon moves so fast that he falls down to the ground.
Are you okay?
Okay, I’m gone!
