Chapter 8: The Discovery - DWC ETERNITY

Chapter 8: The Discovery

The Olympians tried their best to keep the Book of Eternity secret and safe, but eventually it was found. A human being, a young archaeologist by the name of Alexander, unearthed the artifact in the largest of the Greek islands, Crete.

Alexander's quest to learn the mysteries of history and achieve immortality had led him on a long and fruitless hunt for the book. He had grown convinced of the book's veracity after reading up on its legends. If he could only locate the book, he reasoned, he could then harness its power to usher in a golden age for all of humanity.

At the site, Alexander discovered a tomb he thought was related to the book. After spending weeks digging, he found a secret chamber in the tomb. As promised by the stories, the Book of Eternity was waiting for him within the room.

The book's cover featured a leather binding and an Ouroboros, the snake-like symbol of Cronos. At that moment, Alexander was overjoyed because he finally had his hands on the book he had been looking for.

The Olympians learned about Alexander's find and realized they needed to take swift action to safeguard the book. Alexander's discovery of the Book of Eternity was shocking, but what came next was much more so. Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades, the powerful Olympian gods of the sky, sea, and underworld, approached him while he studied the book.

Alexander stood before the three gods, who each exuded an imposing and awe-inspiring power. Zeus, the supreme deity, was a towering figure who wielded a lightning bolt. His presence was one of strength and power, and he commanded respect with every action he took.

God of the sea Poseidon was just as awesome. A trident in his strong hands exuded an aura that was at once soothing and empowering, and he was decked out in seaweed and shells from head to toe. His presence was at once comforting and foreboding, embodying the sea in all its majesty and might.

The underworld deity Hades was the most enigmatic of the three. The shadows concealed his face, and his cloak was as black as the night. His eyes were like daggers, and the staff he carried was formed of black smoke. His presence was both terrifying and captivating; he was the personification of death and the unknown.

When Alexander learned the truth about the Olympians, he was struck by their might and strength and was awed by them. They warned Alexander against opening the book and unleashing Cronos's wrath. They also stressed that the book was too dangerous for any single person to possess.

Alexander recognized he was in the company of genuine gods when he saw the Olympians in all their majesty. He finally understood that the tales and legends he had heard about the Olympians were not fabrications but rather historical accounts of their actual exploits. In the face of the gods' true might, he felt both awestruck and grateful.

Upon learning that the Olympians were real and had been keeping an eye on him, Alexander was split between his desire for power and his dread of the repercussions. The Olympians presented Alexander with a choice: he could either return the book to its hidden chamber and leave it undisturbed, or he could join them as a protector of the book.

Alexander finally made up his mind to join the Olympians and defend the book after considerable deliberation. The stakes were high, and he knew it was crucial to protect the book at all costs. Being trusted with the responsibility of guarding the Book of Eternity's secrets was an incredible privilege for him.

When the Olympians saw that Alexander had made up his mind, they gave him instruction in the ways of guarding the book and bestowed upon him some of their strength via the EternalProject wristwatch. As an immortal guardian of the book, Alexander kept working as an archaeologist while simultaneously keeping a close check on it.
