Chapter 24

The Hilton's:
Time To Move On
Richard and the others were able to get Danny, Javier, and Lilly in beds for them to recover. As Athena looked upon Danny, the room door opened and in came Echo.
Athena: So you took the cure Echo?
Echo: Yes...I couldn't stand being a vampire another day!
Athena: Richard do you think that Danny and the others will be okay?
Richard: Yes. They all suffered serious injuries, but due to their vampire bodies they should be up in no time! As for Danny....Whatever you did, he has already healed! We just have to wait until they wake up.
Echo: I just can't believe that you gave much Athena!
Athena: It may seem like a lot, but it is nothing compared to ensuring that my child stays alive!
River: I still can't believe Ron has taken on the inititive! I always thought Ron was just another pawn of Zeus'!
River: Tell me Echo, what happened at the estate, to you and the others? Where is Victoria? And how did Zeus react to Ron's power?
Echo: Honestly, most is a blur. I know that Ron has immense power! He killed....
Echo stopped and looked at Richard.
Richard: Go on Echo.
Echo: He killed Harley, Corri and.....Melody. But he didn't mean to kill her, it just happened! My memory of what happened to Sheri is still hazy. But Zeus seemed more ammused and kept Victoria, to ensure that Danny would come for her!
Richard: Oh Ron! Do you know what happened to Felicity?
Echo: I believe she is with Ron.
Athena: I'm so sorry Richard.
Richard continued on checking on the others to take his mind of his family, trying his hardest to fight back tears.
Later that day.
Athena: Your finally awake! I'm sure you have a ton of questions for me. Danny...I'm sorry for doing what I did. I-I just couldn't lose you too!
Danny: I'm not mad at you mom. I'm sad for you. I'm sad for my family, for Richard, and I'm just so very sad!
Athena looked upon Danny and did her best not to cry and run to him and embrace him.
Athena: Use it! Use that saddness to help make you stronger, so you can finally bring your family peace!
Danny: I-I will!
Athena: Now that you have my immortality, you also obtained most of my memories and magic. Do you understand why I left, why I can only stay in one place for one life time.
Danny: Because of your father.
Athena: "Father", I may refer to him as that but he isn't my real father. He was our savior, my brothers and I. We were turned by a vampire against our will and used as his property! But father saved us! Killed our maker and took us in as his own. He taught us the ways of a vampire and gave us purpose. Once we were capable of being on our own, he returned to his family! He is one of the very first vampire's in this world! Later on he would be our greatest enemy, our greatest fear.
Danny: Why? What caused this?
Athena: He went through vampire's like matches! He liked me and my brothers for our magical abilities. So he took our children, our first born. My brothers all gave up one of their children, but once I had mine and discovered they had our abilities, we ran! And continued running until we reached Egypt and gained power and wealth! But the peace wasn't to last, soon I killed one of my children and sealed my brothers! From that day on me and my daughter were on the run! 
Danny: Where is she now?
Athena hesitated to answer.
Athena: I honestly don't know. I can tell you that she and I never really bonded after her brother died. One day she said she was leaving to begin her own life. She hugged me and said goodbye. That was two or three life times ago.
Danny: I'm sorry.
Athena: Don't be. I know that she is still alive out there! Maybe, one day you two will meet. Enough of memory lane, let us discuss our plan of action....and Danny, please put some clothes on!
Hours later.
River: Are you sure you want to do this Danny? They could still be of some help in the fight.
Danny: No. I won't lose any more family and friends to this war.
Athena: It is a wise decision Danny. This will ensure your families legacy.
River: Or ensure our quick defeat.
Danny: No. This is the right thing to do. I-I know that I can beat Zeus and save my family!
Danny then called everyone to come together for a very important announcement. As Javier, Richard, Lilly, and Echo came, they all noticed the bottles of the vampire cure and a very serious looking Danny.
Javier: Danny....what's going on?
Danny: In light of Sean's and Melody's death, I've decided that you. The last members of my family will not continue in this war!
Lilly: What the hell are babbling about! You can't decide this for us! We've lost friends and family too! My Aunt Corri! No! I won't stop...I can't, I have to fight and avenge my Au....
Echo: Enough!
The room fell silent. Lilly stopped talking as tears began to roll down her face. She quickly wiped them away.
Echo: Danny knows all this...why else would he want to spare you and the others the same fate as your Aunt Corri, Melody, Sean, and everyone that has died!
Lilly rolled her eyes in anger and was very displeased to the truth.
Echo: So much death....Don't you guys see, Danny wants to save what little family he has left. To carry live!
Javier: So what will you have us do Danny? Take the cure, go home and continue life as you fight?
Danny: Yes. I want all of you to go and live. I want to end this without losing any of you! I want you I need you guys to continue on.
Lilly: I don't think I can.
Danny: I know you can Lilly. I know your mother and your aunt would've wanted you to live on.
Lilly fell silent and fought back more tears as she remembered her mom and aunt.
Danny: I know it hurts and that all of you are mad at me right now. But this is the way it has to be!
Richard:'ll save them won't you? Ron and Felicity are my only siblings left.
Lilly: No there not, you have us! We're your siblings too!
Danny: I'll give my life to bring them back Richard! I won't stop until I save them all!
Richard nodded in agreement and looked at Javier and Lilly and then at the cure that sat in front of him.
Richard picked up the bottle and drank it!
As Lilly watched on, Javier also drank the cure. Lilly slowly turned her attention to Danny.
Lilly: I can't....not yet anyways. I'm sorry....but I will listen to your wishes!
Danny: Don't be sorry Lilly. As long as you live, I'll be happy.
Within moments the cure started taking its effects on Javier and Richard. They were human again!
Danny, Athena and River prepared to leave, as they were leaving Danny turned around to look upon the ones that would continue the familiy legacy.
Danny was reminded of the day he first left his family so long ago. Back then it was Oliver, Stella, Logan, and Ron that said their goodbyes to Danny before he left.
Richard: Grandpa, you better come back home from this!
Javier: Kick Zeus' ass for me! And whatever you do, don't forget that you have us to rely on!
Danny nodded in agreement as he gazed upon the last members of a great family!
Danny: I will come back and I'll never forget all of your support!
The time had come, Danny and the others had reached the estate and entered! They were greeted by an unexpected site!
Athena: Oh God! Zeus! Stop!
Zeus was at the end of a spell of taking Poseidon's powers and immortality!
Zeus continued to drain Poseidon as he gazed up to Athena and the others. He didn't say a word, once done Zeus dropped Poseidon to the ground!
Poseidon moaned in pain. Danny quickly saw Victoria uncounscious behind Zeus.
Zeus: Sister, so glad to finally see you! I knew that my "children" would be no match for you!
Athena: Yet you still sent them to their deaths!
Zeus: Don't pity the the weak Athena, your better than that....
Athena: Zeus, you never did give me a straight answer as to why you need all this power and to resurrect your children.
Zeus: Father!
Athena: What about him?!
Zeus: He's coming for us! He knows where we are!
Athena: How do you know this?!
Zeus: I was visited by one of his children...Our sibling Hermes!
Athena: Hermes! When? What did he say to you?!
Zeus: It doesn't matter! All that does matter is that father is coming and I need the power and army to stop him!
Danny: Stop him from doing what? None of you have children to offer him!
Zeus: We don't but Athena does! Don't you sister!
Danny: Damn you Zeus!
Zeus then realized what Athena had done for Danny and shook his head in disbelief!
Zeus: You stupid woman! You gave your powers to him!
Athena: Upset, that you didn't get a chance to take them from me brother?!
Zeus: I'm only taking them to ensure our survival! Father wants us DEAD!
Athena: Why?!
Zeus: He seeks to replace us! To punish us, there is no real reason why! Father does what he wants! You of all people know this!
Athena: So for "our" survival, you intended to strip us from our powers to increase yours! Sounds more like your doing it to ensure your survival brother!
Zeus: Well, you never where that gullible like our brothers! But you made one big mistake sister!
Athena: And what would that mistake be?
Zeus' gaze then drifted to Danny. Zeus then smiled and then looked back at Athena.
Zeus: You made my job at aqcuiring your powers so much easier!
Quickly the group prepared themselves for Zeus to attack!
Athena: You won't lay a finger on my son....not again!
Zeus: It's to late for you chose mortality for your child! I chose to live forever no matter the COST!!!
As Athena's group looked on, Zeus began to tranform in front of them!
Zeus: Poseidon's power flows within me! I can feel the immense POWER!!!
Zeus: Sister! If you only knew the feels AMAZING!!! NOTHING WILL STOP ME NOW! I AM A GOD!!!
As intense amount of energy engulfed Zeus, Athena could only watch in horror as her brother turned into a monster!
Zeus: AHH!!!
Zeus had finished transforming, then turned his gaze unto his sister! In a demonic tone of voice he spoke!
Until Next Time!!!

Chapter 23

The Hilton's:
Deals Are Made To Be Broken
Unbeknownst to Richard, he had finally found Danny and Athena! But to his horror he found Danny close to death and Athena not looking so good herself!

Richard: What happened to my grandfather?!
Athena: Don't worry, he'll be fine! I've made sure of that!

Athena slowly laid Danny back to the ground, then she seemed to fade back to normal and extremely tired!

Richard: What have you done?
Athena: I ensured that Danny will live a very long life!
Richard: What do you mean?!
Athena: I gave him my immortality....with it my past and my future! I know it wasn't what he would want....
She then slowly gazed at her last son.
Athena: But a mother would do anything to help her child!

Richard: So your mortal now?!
Athena: Yes....but I still have enough power for one, maybe two spells.

As Athena sat by Danny, River entered the room!
River: Finally! I can now take his soul and leave this place....

As River grined and over looked Danny's body, he then realized what Athena had done!
In a spark of fury, River's form changed immediatly!
River: How dare you interfere with our deal! Danny should be dead, your interference has cost me his soul!

Athena sadly glanced up to River and then back to Danny.
Athena: Don't worry'll get an old soul....maybe more soon enough!
Back at the Hilton Estate, the sounds of beatings echoed throughout the building!

Still unconscious, Echo laid quietly, while Victoria stood by in almost a shocked state as she watched Javier and Lilly being beaten by Zeus and Poseidon!
Victoria: PLEASE....stop it!

Zeus: Pathetic! I was expecting more from you troublesome beings! 
Zeus continued to stomp on Javiar's chest, while Poseidon dealt with Lilly.
Zeus: I thought I told you Javier, not to face me until you became more powerful! If you think your strength has grown....then you truly disappointed me!
Poseidon held tightly to Lilly, almost to the point of crushing her neck!
Poseidon: You people think that you can come here and expect to beat us!
Lilly struggled to get free, but in the back of her mind she was getting weaker and knew she was about to die!
Thankfully Echo/Ron had woken up and caught the attention of Zeus, who stopped beating Javier.
Echo/Ron: You have finally come home I can avenge my family!
Poseidon dropped Lilly and looked at Echo confused.
Poseidon: What the hell are you talking about Echo?!
Zeus gazed at Echo and then he broke a small smile.
Zeus: You don't see it, do you brother?
Poseidon: What?! What the hell is going on?!!
Zeus: Ron....He's controlling her, he has been behind this whole ordeal! But more importantly he is the one responsible!
Poseison: For what?! Damn it brother stop speaking in riddles and spit it out! What is going on here?!!!
Zeus: You killed Hades, didn't you Ron?!
Echo/Ron: Yes....I now hold his powers within me! And I know all your secrets Zeus! Your brother knew about your true motives....sadly he accepted his fate he was to suffer!
Poseidon: You killed Hades! I've been killing these people based on a lie! Brother what is he talking about, what secret have you been keeping?!!!
Zeus: Calm yourself Poseidon! I'll tell you in due time. So Hades knew all this time. Well, I guess he was smarter than he lead on! Tell me Ron, how do you want to play this little game of yours?
Echo/Ron: I want you to spare my Uncle Javier and Lillian. They fought for the right to live on.
Zeus: What of your dear grandmother Victoria?
Echo/Ron: She stays....Danny will come for her. I want all of you here. Besides I gave my dear grandmother her chance to leave and live, sadly she chose to come back!

Zeus: Agreed. I will send your two relatives home...but...
Echo/Ron: "But"?
Zeus: I want to send Echo with them. She has served me well and I want her to carry on.
Echo/Ron: She is a great scientist. I guess her services will serve the greater good or she could also be the spoils of war! Fine.
Echo/Ron: One more thing, I want you to greet Danny when he arrives.
Zeus: Ha! In other words you want us to kill each other! I have no problem killing your dear grandfather if you don't have the heart to do so yourself!
As Ron controlled Echo to join Javier and Lilly, Zeus began to chant a spell to send the trio home.
However, Javier wasn't about to go without fighting till the end!
Javier: Damn you Zeus! Ron! RON, YOU CAN'T DO THIS! WE'RE FAMILY!
Ron: Family?! Dear Uncle, our family is dead! There is no family anymore!
As Javier and the others seem to fade away, Zeus then looked at Poseidon and Victoria.
Zeus: I guess the final battle is upon us! About that secret brother....
Back at the under ground bunker, Athena and River continued to argue over Danny and his fate. Richard could only do his best to keep the peace!
River: I was promised Danny's soul! What can you offer that would be worth more than him?!
Athena stood up and looked straight at River.
Athena: Dear Reaper, Angel of Death. I swear to you, that I will be the one to take my son's place! And who knows...I may be joined by my brothers too!
Just as she ended her sentence a bright light came from the living room. Within the sparks and light Javier and the ladies appeared.
Javier and Lilly were unconscious, while Echo sat on the floor confused and scared.
River and Richard ran to see what was going on and where shocked to see the three appear out of no where!
River: I knew I felt another Hilton pass on!
Richard: Oh God! Javier...Lilly! Echo...where is Sean?!
As Richard stared at Echo, she suddenly began to sob! Immediatly Richard knew, there was no more Sean.
As Richard helped the others, Athena stayed close to Danny.
Athena: Looks like the end is coming my son.
Athena: need to wake up and get back on your feet. Or your family will be no more!
Until Next Time!!!
