Aero tossed the rope aside. He will not use the rope. Aero charged forward. This time the right head tries to spit fire again, but he beat him to it.
He punched the head as hard as he could. The dog flew backward with pain and blood. Without giving it time to get up Aero jumped and landed a kick on the right head.
The head buried itself to the ground because of the impact. Since they could not move because the right head was stuck in the ground Aero pummeled the middle head until blood spurts from its nose.
Until finally Aero beaten him to almost an inch of death then suddenly he hear voice booming, that echoes through all the Underworld.
Then the sunless sky turned darker and colder. Shadows thickened. Souls screams and wails. Death pervaded the place like a short brief wind.
And from the darkness emerged a figure.
He looked regal and dignified. His expression was cold and hard. His white hair falls down around his forehead hiding his left eye.
Behind him becomes dark and gloomy. If all this gloom in the Underworld comes from him, Aero couldn't imagine how strong he really is.
He rode a golden chariot drawn by a team of four sable black horses. The horses were like living shadows. It had red eyes fashioned from darkness.
The chariots was inlaid with obsidian and gold, and you could see the chariots was decorated with scenes of painful death.
Hades wore black armor and has something like a scarf covering his neck. On top of his head was his helm.
It radiated pure terror and dread. Deria was already trembling when he sees the crown.
So Aero also looked at it.
Then suddenly he felt like he was in the River Styx all over again. And unconsciously even Aero body started trembling. Quickly Aero decided to avert his eyes away.
But Aero managed to see that around that person hip is a collection of keys decorated like a skulls.
He wielded a bird tipped scepter that radiated the power to govern life and death. Aero need no explanation.
He must be the King here. And he knows how he is looking at. He is the first God that he met that frightened him to the core.
"To Lord Hades, magnanimous, whose realms profound are fixed beneath the firm and solid ground, I offer my respect" Aero said while kneeling.
Deria also kneels and said
"To thee, great king, all sovereign earth assigned, the seat of gods and basis of mankind."
Lord Hades smiled coldly towards them and then he said looking at the three headed dog and gently said
"Cerberus, come here boy" Then all the binds on the dog head magically unbind itself as the dog got up and shakes their head in happiness at looking at their master.
The dog quickly wagging their tails and ran to Hades.
"Now, go to my palace and guard it like always"
The dog barked happily.
"Here's the ball" Hades open his palm and a ball appeared.
Then the dog barked again and this time they listen to Hades. They quickly turned to shadows and disappeared. Then Hades turned to back to them
Aero is still kneeling. So is Deria.
"Now, what should I do with both of you?" he said while he is grinning a malevolent smile. There is an uncomfortable silence in the area.
Then suddenly that awkward silence was broken by a voice
"Reward them" A gentle and majestic voice sounded
Aero immediately glow in happiness as he recognizes this voice.
The lights shimmered and she appeared before them. Hades looks at Athena like he is analyzing her. Then he said
"Yes, that what you would want" Hades said boringly towards Athena. Athena was not discouraged and said
"Have they not proved their worth?" Athena said
"I subdue the dogs" Hades said calmly
"No, you know as well as I do, if you let them, that boy would haul back the dog right at your palace entrance" Athena shot back
Then they just stared at each other. Hades then smile mysteriously and nodded with a faint amusement in his eyes
Then he takes the key that jangle in his hips and turn the key in the empty air.
Suddenly the entire underworld trembles and the souls quieted down and a heavenly melody sounded out for a few second before a golden a door appears behind Hades
Athena eyes gleamed with brightness. But Hades is not Hades if not for such a spoilsport
"You want to release Hephaestus son, don't you Athena? But heed my words. This will be the only exception. This adventurer should not have been in the Underworld in the first place. NEVER AGAIN!" And then the entire Underworld shakes and roars with him. Athena bows her head humbly and Hades glared at Athena.
"Of course, Lord Hades. I do not want to anger you" Hades only nodded and then he turned to shadows an d melded into the darkness and then disappear
Then the sound of notification sounded in Aero ears.

"You can go out now, Deria" She said

"But-" Deria seems reluctant
"It's okay Deria. Let's meet when I finished the last task." Aero said assuring Deria.
