Loki muttered furiously to himself as he flew towards Elysian, fear etched onto his face. He felt his hands tremble and shake. The weather grew darker and darker, till it seemed as if the sun had vanished completely. Elysian appeared below him, looking much smaller than it had when he had last visited. He looked in shock at the near black water. The citizens of Elysian had become corrupt by dark forces. He thought of his mother, alone and vulnerable in her hut. Then to the image of Apollo’s smouldering features. He shook all images out from his minds and determinedly continued on his way. Two shadow men stood at the gates, their armour filled with raging mists. Loki knew there was no possible way to take down the mist warriors. He cursed once again. Bane appeared outside, cloaked in a dark cape. Loki reacted immediately. He leapt off his horse and held a glass dagger to Bane’s neck.
“Surprise!” he grinned. He felt as if his luck had changed. Relief coursed through his veins providing him with both comfort and warmth. The shadow men glared down at him with their faceless features and intimidating stance. Loki let out a shuddered breath as they led him inside their new home. Opal ran to him, crying with joy. She buried her head in his chest as Loki forced Bane onto the ground.
“Get Apollo and get out of here!” he cried. Opal timidly obeyed his command. The soldiers stood impassively around the edges of the room. Bane lay on the carpet. His filthy body ruin the hard work put into the masterpiece. Apollo was soon freed and rushed to Loki’s side. Loki refused to look at him, anger overcoming all his senses as Bane struggled against his grip.
“GET OUT!” he screamed. Apollo stood there shell-shocked. Opal tugged at his hand and together both of them ran out of the room. Loki glanced after him, a huge mistake. All at once, Bane disarmed Loki and held the dagger to his neck, drawing blood. Loki stood stone still, refusing to cry out in pain.
“Men! We have work to do!” cried Bane with a laugh that echoed throughout the room.
