In 55 Words FD MC Challenge 2017 – Day 118

Today’s piece draws its inspiration from Greek mythology, namely the story of the Twelve Labors of Hercules.

The protagonist may be a demigod but even he is powerless against the charms of a hypnotic woman.


No Labor at All

He had fought lions, bulls, nine-headed monstrosities, captured man-eating mares and stolen sacred apples and an Amazonian belt. He was tired, needed to rest.
“You’re going to sleep for me now,” Megara whispered.
Hercules’ head slumped forward as her words took root inside his mind. Going into trance for her was no labor at all.
