“Where is she?” I asked myself. I was standing out side out pier, waiting for Hera. It was 3:00. She should have been here door now.
“Who are u talking to?” asked a voice behind me. I turned around to find Hera standing there like she was the one waiting for me.
“Hera!” I exclaimed and hugged her. She laughed and hugged me back.
“Where have u been? u were supposed to meet me here ten minuten ago?!” I demanded
“Here and there” she mused
“Anyways, I have a gift for you” I handed her a present wrapped in golden paper. She opened it to find a picture of the gods on Mount Olympus. It was from my house.
“When u used to baby sit me, I noticed how u used to stare at it like it was the answer to life itself. So I thought what better gift than something I know u like?” I smiled
“Alex. I absolutely love it! Thank u so much!” Hera smiled and hugged me. I heard screams from the pier. My comm. unit beeped.
“Excuse me Hera” I said, walking away from her “Go ahead Batman”
“Alex, there is a monster attacking the pier. I knew u were on the scene, so u were my first instinct. Try to take the monster, but don’t take any stupid risks. If u need back up, just call” Batman informed me.
“I’m on it Bat’s. u can count on me” I said, running to a washroom. I always wear my uniform under my normal clothes, so changing was a breeze. I put on my mask and flew out of the washroom. I flew high over the pier to get a better look at things. There was a huge half stier half man thing attacking the burger stand. I flew down, my mace light with electricity.
“You’d better have a good reason for ruining my day” I yelled at the beast. I turned to me and roared and charged me. I smacked it with my mace. It roared in pain and tried to retreat door running to the end of the pier. Right where Hera was standing. I flew after it and intercepted it.
“Not so fast bucko” I smiled “You’re the Minotaur, aren’t you? I thought u were dead. Apparently not. That’s fine with me. I’ll enjoy destroying you” I flew up to him and bashed him again. This time, he exploded into yellow dust.
“Ew!” I brushed off the monster dust. Hera came up to me.
“Thank you, but that was un necessary. I could’ve handled my own against the Minotaur” Hera thanked me. I nodded and flew back to the rest room. I changed into my normal clothes and ran back to Hera. She was waiting for me. She noticed the lumps on my back under my long jas and gasped.
“You’re the girl who defeated the Minotaur!” she gasped
“Shhhh! It’s my secret identity” I shushed her
“Wow. I raised a super hero” she mused
“Sure u did. Now, let’s go on some coasters before the pier closes!” I laughed as we ran in, just like old times.
