Fall of the Ferryman
By: Nerisha Kemraj

"Something must be done, Lord Hades! This is madness! Cerberus is stealing the souls that Charon isn't ferrying across River Styx and Acheron!"

"What? Do the souls not have his obolos?"

"They do. But he refuses to work. Sleeping himself away, depressed."

"Don't tell me, he's still upset over Aphrodite? That was just her ruse to get to me!”

***

"Charon. The souls await their ferry. You have a job to do!" Hades thundered.

"I cannot work anymore. Obolos means nothing, if I do not have her for myself."

Without another word, Charon threw himself into the River Styx.
