Futile Hiding

Disrobing himself, he poured a flagon of alcohol onto him, removing his scent.

"The cloak conceals you, but she may still sense your presence. Are you sure about his, Perseus?" Hermes' words echoed in his head.

"If it means saving her from that possessive man, then so be it."

Ditching his sandals, he knew its leather would ring against the cave's walls, signaling his approach. Crouching, he silently crept in. Controlling his breathing, his heartrate slowed. Using his shield as a mirror, the magical aura Athena bestowed made it glow ethereally, that which only his eyes could perceive. Using its reflections, he navigated the caverns.

"Well, what do we have here?" Her words slithered into his ears. Spinning in circles, he tried locating her position, but he couldn't spot her. Then, a small glimpse appeared in the shield's reflection. First it was camouflaged against the wall, soon she was upon him, wrapping him up in her scales.

Tens of forked tongues tasted him, sharp scales rotated around him. His body was wrapped up tightly in a muscular grip. Fearfully, he shut his eyes. Waiting for her to strike.

"Did you honestly think that you'd sneak up on me," she slapped his ass, groping a handful of his demigod Persian musculature, "with them thangs clappin'?!" She laughed in his face, whilst her weaving snakes continued licking him. "Thanks for bringing me some alcohol. Most men don't know how to treat a woman. Still, even invisible, my vipers' pits could sense your heat even in the darkest nights."

"Do you plan to kill me?"

"Maybe, but it's been some time since I've had such handsome company. Besides, I enjoy playing with my food before killing it."

"You vile-."

She gasped, loosening her coils, "Seven Hades! What misfortune befell your cobra?" She examined his manhood, "Was it born blind? Did something gouge its eyes out? Poor thing, even its hood's mangled."

Exiting with a bloody bag, Hermes greeted him, "Hey, you alright Pers? Killing's not everybody's thing."

Perseus sniffled, "She mocked lil' Perseus!"

Hermes laughed, "Come on, Pers! Bro, even your horse's name's weird!"


"Peg. A. Sussy!"

"OH, YOU TRICKSTER! PEGASUS!" They chased each other around the beach.

Thavien's Token:

This idea about "Perseus and Medusa" was living rent free in my head for a few days, based off a meme. L.C. Schäfer's "Fucked Up Fairytales - An Unofficial Challenge" gave me the perfect opportunity to evict it.
