Present Day...

Psyche was too busy. She had a million things to do, even being a goddess didn't help. Cupid's constant nagging, the mortals constant whining and Aphrodite's constant clawing almost drove her to the boiling point. Right now though, the only thing she had to worry was her daughter Pleasure, who at the moment was acting more like her father.

"At least it's better than being in Olympus," she said to herself.

While Psyche was busy dealing with everybody else's problems, Pleasure was busy creating her own. She was running up and down the halls of the huge palace with her arms up in the air like a bird's.

"Pleasure! Don't go out too far, okay! Watch where you're-Pleasure!"

Psyche turned around to see Pleasure standing next to a fallen stand and a broken vase on the floor with a curious look on her face. Psyche grabbed a broom and went over there to clean it up.

"Well, what do you have to say for yourself? This was your father's favorite vase!"


Suddenly, Psyche heard two loud knocks coming from their door.

"Ugh, what now? Come on!"

Psyche grabbed Pleasure's hand and took her into the living room and sat her down.


The person on the other side of the door knocked twice again and Psyche went to answer it.

"Yeah, yeah, I'm coming. Who is it?"

"Hi. I'm an old friend of Cupid's, do you think I could come in and talk to him?"

"He's not here right now, do you think you could come back later?"

"Well, I won't be in this part of Greece for a while and it's really important that I talk to him. By the way, who are you anyway?"

"I'm his wife, Psyche, and if it's that important, why don't you come in and wait. I'm sure he won't be gone long."

"You'll do."


"Oh, nothing. Sure, I'll come in and wait."

Psyche opened the door and let the stranger in. The stranger looked around and saw Pleasure sitting in quiet contemplation.

"Do you think that we could talk alone? I don't think that someone so young should hear this."

"Sure. Pleasure, take the broom and go clean up the mess you made."

"Oh, mom. I want to-"


"Oh, all right."

Pleasure and the broom disappeared into thin air and Psyche offered the stranger a chair.

"No thanks. I don't plan on being here long."

"That's fine. It's just that I've had such a busy day today. You know, you look too young to know Cupid."

"I'm older than I look. Much older."

"That's cool. You want something to drink?"

"No thanks. I'd rather just get down to business and get going."

The stranger pulled out a shining sword that had a ruby on its butt and strange symbols on its hilt.

"What's that for?"

"For me to use on you."

"Who are you?"



"That's where you're wrong. I can kill you, but I was actually after Cupid and since he's not here, you'll have to do."

Psyche started to run but the stranger flipped over her to face her and raised her sword ready for the kill.

"Pleasure! Pleasure! Go find yo-"



Xena and Gabrielle were walking Argo down the main road to Jappa after receiving a message of distress from one of the surrounding villages. It was another clear sunny day and as they were walking, they were playing one of their favorite games.

"Okay, my turn," said Gabrielle, "I spy with my little eye something...fuzzy."

"You mean something like your tan line," Xena replied patting Gabrielle's stomach.

"Very funny, but not right. Try again."

"Well, how about Argo here?"

"Too obvious. Try again."

Xena looked around in her usual manner, scoping the forest out for any sign of danger.

"Well, how about the hairs on the chiny-chin-chins of those soldiers hiding in those trees?"

"Do you want to scare them off or shall I?"

"Looks like their's about ten men, I'll take them. I need to get the blood flowing anyway."

"Suit yourself."

Xena took out her chakram, flung it out in the air and bouncing off certain areas, managed to take most of them out before catching it. She then took out her sword and gave out her famous battle cry. One of them came down from the trees and Xena kicked him in the stomach and took out another soldier with a kick to the face. Gabrielle, on the other hand, was fully confident of Xena's abilities and left the fighting to her. Xena dodged the last soldier's punch, hit him in the face, gave him the Touch and knocked him down.

"I just blocked the flow of blood to your brain. You'll be dead in twenty seconds if you don't tell me what I want to know."

"Okay, okay," replied the soldier.

"Who sent you?"

"Draco. He knew you were coming, so he sent us to stop you from failing his plans to take the village."

Xena was about to put her fingers on his neck to remove the Touch when a strange feeling came over. It was like a wave of complete emptiness took over her soul and left her emotionally numb. She wasn't the only one affected. Gabrielle just sat on the ground next to Argo looking like an empty shell and the soldier, just before he died, stopped writhing and fell to the ground. All of a sudden, just as fast as it came, it ended.

"What in Hades was that?"

"I don't know. It was like something inside me left and then all of a sudden it just came back, but it wasn't the same."

"Me too. Xena! The soldier!"

Xena turned around to see the soldier on the ground with his face pale white, his nose bleeding and his eyes rolled up.

"Damn! I was hoping to rub it in Draco's face. We'd better get to the village right away."

"Right, I'll get Argo ready."

While Gabrielle was busy with Argo, Xena picked up the soldiers body to bury it and felt his skin.

"This is odd."

"What's odd?"

"He's as cold as ice on a mountain."

"So? Aren't all dead people supposed to be like that?"

"Yeah, but not for a couple of hours."

"So your saying he's been dead for a couple of hours?"


"That's impossible. You put your touch on him only a few seconds ago."

"I know that, but the dead don't lie, Gabrielle."

"So what's going on?"

"I don't know. But I'm going to find out."


Cupid was sitting on top of a bell tower watching some sapless suitor trying to impress a lady who wanted nothing to do with him. Cupid knew that he promised Psyche that he wouldn't do something so stupid, but he was always one to lend a helping hand to those who were unlucky in love. He loaded his crossbow and was ready to shoot the lady in the back.

"This is going to be too easy."

Just as he was about to shoot, the wave of emptiness came in and when he did, it went way above the lady's head and hit the temple wall.

"Dang! I never missed that badly! She didn't even have to dodge it!"

He jumped off the bell tower and flew down to the ground to get the arrow.

"Excuse me. Hello?"

He looked at the lady that he was going to hit and waved his hand in front of her face.

"Hello? Anyone there?"

The lady didn't even flinch. Cupid looked around and saw that everyone else was the same way.

"Something weird's going on here. I'd better get home."

Cupid pushed the lady out of the way, grabbed his arrow and flew away. On his way back he looked down to see that everybody sitting or standing but they all looked like living statues. When he got back to his abandoned palace, he saw that the door was open and went inside.

"Psyche! Honey, I'm home! Psyche?"

Cupid looked around the room and down the hallway and saw a broken vase, a fallen stand and a broom on the floor.

"Pleasure! Is anybody here? If this is a joke, it's not very funny!"

Cupid was worried now and searched the palace room by room, which, even though he had wings, took him the better part of two hours and still found the rooms as empty as the first. When he reached the final room, he saw Psyche lying on the floor and ran to her side. She had a big hole in her chest and blood was coming out of her headless body. He took her hand and wept openly. As the tears flowed down her arm, smoke suddenly rose from her body and he stopped crying.

"No! Oh, no!"

The smoke that rose from her body was thicker now and slowly, starting at her feet, her body turned to ashes and her bodily frame fell apart. Cupid put his hands over his eyes and wept again.

"If only I could have saved them!"

He suddenly thought of Pleasure. He didn't see her body at all. 'Maybe she was lucky enough to get away.' Now all he had to do was find her as well as the person who did this. Cupid looked up and saw a trail of blood from where Psyche's body was up to the wall above her. He saw on the wall, in her blood, a heart inside a circle with a slash through it and right below it was a message written in Ionic which said "No More Love". Cupid had a look of surprise and fear in his eyes when he read it.

"No! It couldn't be! I've got to warn the other gods!"


Xena and Gabrielle arrived in the village riding on Argo expecting it to be surrounded by Draco's soldiers and under attack. But instead, when they got there, they saw some of the villagers moving around in a trance-like state picking flowers and the soldiers were dancing with the other villagers. They stopped in the middle of the village, got off Argo and looked around.

"Oh, this just keeps getting weirder and weirder. What are these people on?"

"Relax, Gabrielle. I'm sure there's a pretty good explanation for all this."

"Yeah, well, right now I would love to hear what it is. You know this has been the weirdest day. I-oh, look at the pretty flowers."

Gabrielle went out to get those pretty flowers and Xena scratched her head in confusion.

"Gabrielle, get back here!"

"Hey, don't be a meanie! Be cheery and friendly!"

Xena turned around to see a little girl stanidng behind her in a richly covered dress with a smile on her face.

"Are you the one causing all this?"



"Because everybody should be happy and cheery and friendly and nice and-"

"Okay, okay. We get the point. Who are you?"

"My name is Pleasure."

"Pleasure? Shouldn't you be in Olympus?"

"Yeah, but I'm looking for my father."

Xena sighed and saw Gabrielle chasing a butterfly and acting like a child amazed in its wonder.

"Oooh, pretty butterfly."

Xena grabbed Gabrielle by the shoulder and pulled her toward her.

"I tell you what, if you take your spell of my friend here, we'll help you find your father, okay?"


Pleasure snapped her fingers and Gabrielle returned to her normal self.

"Hey, what the-oww, let go!"

"What about everybody else? Should I take off them too?"

"Why don't we leave them alone for now, okay?"

"Okay, let's go."

"Not so fast. I've got to take care of something first, then we'll go and look for your father, okay?"

"But I want to go and look for him now!"

"I won't take long, I promise. Why don't you go with my friend and when I get back we'll look for him, okay?"


"Good, just stay here for a second."

Xena took Gabrielle by the arm and walked a couple of feet away from Pleasure.

"Gabrielle, I've got to go and have a little talk with Draco. Take Pleasure with you and go to the cave outside the village and wait for me there."


"Thanks, Gabrielle. Oh, by the way, try not to make her angry."

"Come on, Pleasure. Let's go."

Gabrielle and Pleasure started to head out of the village while Xena whistled for Argo and headed toward Draco's camp.


After Xena rode off, a head popped out from behind one of the huts. It was the stranger, who now had a decision to make.

"Let's see now, should I continue to follow the little brat or head after the Warrior Princess?"

The stranger thought carefully on what to do. "Xena may prove to be a bit of a problem. I need some sort of diversion. Draco may be of some help after all, and besides, either way, Cupid will come for the girl."

"Hey, man. Want a flower?"

The stranger gave the cheerful villager a blow to the throat and pushed him down.

"Drop dead."

She looked around and saw a horse and its owner resting next to a hut. She walked up to them and untied the horse from the post it was attached to.

"Hey, that's my horse!"

"Oh, I'm sorry. Mind if I borrow it for a while?"

The stranger hit the owner in the face, got on the horse and rode off toward Draco's camp hoping she would get there before Xena did.


In his tent, Draco pondered on what to do next. He hadn't heard anything from the soldiers he sent to the village or anything else for that matter. He didn't even know if they even made it to the village. He was consorting with his fellow associates when they were rudely interrupted by a guard staggering in with a dagger, which had a skull design on its hilt, stuck in his back. Draco ran to his side to find out what was going on.

"Who did this to you?"he asked angrily.

"She-she killed them."

"Killed who?"

"Mattheius and Atticus and ahhh-"


"She wanted to-uhhh."

The guard fell to the ground and the stranger made herself welcome.

"Draco, I presume."

Draco and his associates drew out their swords and poised themselves to attack.

"Relax. You won't need those. I'm here to help you."

"And how does killing my soldiers help me?"

"Oh, well. They weren't that good anyway. You're better off without them. Can I sit down?"

The stranger pulled her dagger out of the guard's back, kicked him out of the way, pulled up a chair and sat down.

"Who are you?"

"A friend."

"What do you want?"

"I already told you, I'm here to help."


"What if I told you that Xena was in this village and is on her way to see you now."

Draco put his sword away and ordered his men to do the same.

"So, the Warrior Princess is on her way to see me. And what does this have to do with you?"

"I need you to do me a small favor. I'm sure it won't be too much trouble."

"What is it?"

"When you go up against Xena, I need you to keep her busy a little while longer than you usually do."

"How do you expect me to do that?"

"I'm sure you'll think of something. I'll even give you her annoying sidekick as bait."

"Now why should I help you? What are you up to anyway?"

"It doesn't matter what I'm doing. She's on her way, Draco. Do you agree to the terms or not?"

"I agree."

"Good. Well, I'd better get going and hold up my end of the bargain. See you later, Draco."

The stranger got up and left Draco's tent. She did serveral backward roundabouts followed by a mid-air flip to land sitting down on the saddle of her horse. She rode away and headed toward the cave. Draco looked on to see her departure and then turned around thinking of what to do next.

"Change of plans, gentlemen. Here's what we're going to do."


Xena was riding Argo at full speed towards Draco's camp when a winged man appeared out of nowhere and stood right in front of them. Xena told Argo to stop before she ran him over.

"You almost got me killed. I could have fallen off."

"I'm sorry, but I need your help Xena."

"Cupid, I take it. Well, get in line."

"Wait. I'm looking for my daughter."

"Does she have brown hair, hazel eyes and wears really strange clothes?"

"That would be her."

"She's in a cave outside the village. You're welcome."

"Wait. That's not all I need your help for. My-"

"I'm sorry, but I got a village to save and a warlord to meet. You're going to have to wait."

"Xena, my wife is dead!"


"Psyche, she's dead."

"Let me get this straight, your wife, a goddess, died! That's impossible!"

"Oh, it's possible. It just hasn't happened in a long time, and if we don't stop her me and Pleasure are next."



Pleasure and Gabrielle were sitting on the ground in the cave eating some fruit and playing "I Spy". Pleasure didn't know how to play and Gabrielle was explaining the rules to her.

"Okay, you pick out something that you see and then you say "I Spy" with something describing it. For example, take this apple here, you would-"

"I don't want to play anymore."

"Come on, cheer up. We'll find your father. What happened to your mother anyway?"

"I don't know. One minute she was telling me to go find my father and the next thing I know, she's gone."

"Oh, poor baby."

Pleasure and Gabrielle turned around to see the stranger standing at the enterance of the cave. Gabrielle grabbed her staff and told Pleasure to get back.

"No way, I can handle this."

Pleasure snapped her fingers and expected the stranger to act like the villagers but she just stood there yawning. Pleasure kept snapping her fingers but to no avail.

"By the gods! What are you?"

Instead of answering Gabrielle, the stranger headed toward Pleasure but she blocked her way. She tried to hit the stranger with her staff but the stranger caught it, grabbed it and hit her in the stomach and then in the face, knocking her out.


The stranger then took Pleasure's hands and bound them together with chains, hung her up and put a gag in her mouth.

"Be good and stay put. Daddy will be coming for you shortly, as for your friend here, she's got a date with a warlord."


Xena was riding Argo at full spped to the cave and Cupid was flying at the same speed. Xena tried to listen as he explained to her who this new threat was.

"Her name is Jeanre Black. She's a half-hind, half-human immortal."

"Hind? As in Golden Hind?"


"I thought Serena was the last one."

"She was. I told you, Jeanre's half-human."

"So how was she able to kill Psyche?"

"She's immune to the powers and weapons of the gods. Not even Zeus' thunderbolt can kill her."

"So what kind of weapon does she use? You can't just kill a god with your average run-of-the-mill sword."

"Not unless you call the sword of Cronos your average sword."

"Why couldn't she use her blood to kill them?"

"She tried that two hundred years ago. It didn't work because she couldn't even cut her own skin. Besides, you have to be a pure hind for that to work and she got her immortality from the Tree of Life."

"How did she do that?"

"It's a long sotry and I don't have time to tell it. Any more questions?"

"Yeah, how in Hades could she have two names? This is Greece! Everybody has got only one name!"

"The Romans captured her for a short time about eight years ago. They added Black to her name as a joke, she liked it and it stuck. Are we almost there?"


"Good, I just hope were not too late."

Xena and Cupid picked up their pace and reached the cave. Xena got off Argo, took out her sword and they went inside to see Gabrielle missing and Pleasure with her hands chained and her mouth gagged hanging over a fire.

"Pleasure! Hold on, daddy's here!"

"Well, it's about time you showed up!"

Jeanre walked out from one of the corners of the cave, took out her sword and made herself presentable.

"Hello Cupid. Hello Xena."

"Where's Gabrielle?"

"Oh, you mean the annoying blonde? I gave her to Draco. I didn't need her, I have my bait right here."

"We'll see about that."

Xena took out her chakram andd threw it at the chain holding Pleasure up but instead it bounced off it and the wall and Jeanre caught it with her right hand.

"Nice toy, but it's useless. That chain and those cuffs were made by Heaphestus. I don't have anything against you Xena, I just want him."

"Go, get Gabrielle. I'll take care of her."

"Don't be ridiculous, you're not even armed."

"Yes, I am."

Cupid took out his crossbow and shot an arrow. It went by so fast that Xena didn't even see it but Jeanre caught it and tossed it to the ground.

"Okay, maybe not."

Xena took out her sword and handed it to Cupid.


"What about you? What are you going to use?"

"I'll be fine. I might need my chakram back though."

"Oh, here you go."

Jeanre gave Xena the chakram and Xena left the cave to get Gabrielle.

"I want my daughter back right now!"

"Well, if you want her, you're going to have to get through me. "

"Whatever it takes."

"Oh, don't be stupid, Cupid! You don't even know how to use that."

"Oh, really."

Cupid swiped Xena's sword at her but Jeanre ducked and picked up hers. The two swords clashed as each tried to hit each other but to no success. Jeanre showed off her skill by flipping over him and thrusting her sword at him, but he just turned around and blocked it.

"I see you've been practicing. Good, Ilike a challange."

Jeare pulled her sword back and lunged at him so he had to move back toward the cave wall. The swords kept clashing and Jeanre kept trying to push him toward the wall.

"Enough of this."

Jeanre kicked the sword out of Cupid's hand, then gave a roundhouse kick strong enough to push him back against the wall. She put her sword back in her sheath, held up her arms and twitched her wrists. Out of the bands on her wrists came out two daggers which pinned his wings to the wall.

"That's my little toy. Now to take care of your daughter and finish what I started."

Jeanre took her sword back out and headed toward the chain that held Pleasure up. Cupid was trying to reach for the daggers that pinned him to the wall but being unable to move he was unsuccessful.

"Why are you doing this? We haven't done anything to you."

"After two hundered years, you think you would have gotten it by now. I told you twenty-five years ago; what goes around, comes around. Someone has to bring the gods to justice. Why not me?"

The whole time they were talking, Cupid reached for the dagger and pulled one out and was now grabbing for the other one.

"Your ends are just but your means are ruthless. You didn't have to kill my wife. She didn't derseve it."

"But you do! All the lives you ruined, all the hearts you broken. This just is part of the punsihment."

While Jeanre was lowering Pleasure, Cupid removed the other dagger and hit her from behind. He flew up to cut the chain that held Pleasure up. Jeanre got up, walked to the cave's enterance, ran halfway, jumped and flipped high enough to land on Cupid's back. She then took her sword and put it to his neck.

"Time to finish it."

She raised her sword and then took his head. His body fell to the ground and Jeanre flipped off him before it did. She turned him over and rammed her fist into his chest, ripping out his heart. She then took both parts to the fire and watched his body turn to ashes and feathers. Pleasure just turned her head and started to cry.

"Well, that's settled. Now it's your turn."


Xena was waiting in a bush outside of Draco's camp. She saw a few soldiers walking around guarding the camp and guessed that the others were over at the village or watching Gabrielle. She got on Argo and rode toward the camp, got out her chakram and flung it at the guards, flipped off Argo, landed on her feet and caught it. She looked around and found the camp suspiciously empty. Xena tied Argo to the post and searched for Gabrielle. She went in one of the huts and saw her tied up.

"There you are."


"We've got to get back to the cave. Cupid doesn't stand much of a chance against Jeanre."


"I just hope he's alright."


"What is it, Gabrielle?"

"Hello, Xena."

Xena turned around to see Draco and his men standing behind her with spears in their hands. She stopped untying Gabrielle and put her hands in the air.

"I'll take that chakram now."

Draco waved his hand and two of the soldiers tied their hands together and marched them to Draco's tent.

"I tried to tell you that they were behind you, but did you listen, nooooo."

"Be quiet."

They took Xena and Gabrielle in the tent and tied them both to a huge pole inside. Draco told two of them to stand outside the tent and left. Xena was moving around trying to get the ropes untied.

"Well, I hope you got a plan."

"Don't I always. Just keep them busy."

"Hey, you. Yeah you, the one standing outside the tent. Did you ever hear the one about the boatman and the harpy?"

While Gabrielle was telling the guards the bad joke,Xena was moving a little more and a dagger popped out from her breastplate. She caught it with her left hand and untied the ropes.

"I never heard that one before."

"I made it up."

Xena knocked out the guards and looked out for any sign of Draco.

"Well, let's go."

"Hold on. I've got to go back."


"Three guesses."


They walked to the other side of the camp where it was mostly empty. Xena then took out another guard with an elbow to the neck and headed towards Argo. Gabrielle followed and once again Draco's men popped up.

"Hello again, Xena. Why do you keep trying to escape me?"

"Because you make it so easy, Draco."

Draco hit Xena in the face and tried to do it again but all of the sudden another wave came in and he lowered his hand. They didn't turn to living statues like the last time but instead became sullen and depressed.

"What is it?"

"We're too late. Cupid and Pleasure are dead. Jeanre's killed them. We're suffering from their loss."

"You know what, I don't care. I don't care about anything. I don't care at all."

"Neither do I. I don't even know why I'm here. They don't matter to me. Nothing does."

Draco and his men were wandering around depressed with their heads down moping. All of a sudden, something clicked and everything returned to normal. Draco and his men were still walking around but this time in confusion. Xena and Gabrielle used this to their advantage by the grabbing the chakram, untying Argo and riding out. Draco got out of his mood swing and looking for Xena but she was already outside the camp looking back at him smiling.

"Draco, this isn't over. I'll be back."

Xena ordered Argo to turn around and rode of toward the cave.



"Who is this Jeanre? Is she the person who grabbed me?"

"Yes. She's a immortal who wants to kill the gods."


"She's immune to their powers."

"So that's why Pleasure spell didn't work. Xena, if we don't stop her the results could be catastrophic."

"I know."

Xena ordered Argo to go faster and soon enough they reached the cave. They got off Argo and Gabrielle looked for her staff while Xena kneeled to the ground and looked for footprints.

"She's gone. But she didn't go far. Gabrielle-"

"No need, Xena. I'm right here."

Xena looked around and saw Jeanre stanidng on a high branch of a tree. She flipped down to the ground and drew her sword

"Xena, nice to see you again. Cupid wasn't much of a fighter, but I'm sure you'll be a more intersting challenge."

"Let's get this over with."

"Yes, let's."

Xena told Gabrielle to give her the sword and they began to fight. Jeanre struck the first blow by swiping her sword at Xena but she blocked it with her own. The two swords kept clashing and each warrior kept showing off their skill by blocking each blow. Jeanre manged to kick Xena's sword out of her hand and flipped kicking Xena in the face with both feet on her way up and with one foot on her way down befor she landed.

"Nice move. Let me try."

Xena did the same manuever and kicked the sword out of Jeanre hand. They striked at each other trying to hit a pressure spot and Jeanre grabbed her arms and kicked her in the face. She then gave a palm blow to Xena's chest and knocked her to her knees. Jeanre put two fingers on two spots on Xena's neck.

"Say hi to Cupid for me."

Xena smiled and elbowed her in the gut and sweep kicked her knocking her down on the ground. Jeanre tried to get up but Xena grabbed her sword and pointed it at her.

"Got you."

"Well, go on."

"Nah, I think I'll let the law take care of you."

Xena told Gabrielle to get the cuffs and chain that held Pleasure and shackled Jeanre's hands.

She told her to get up and walked her toward Argo.

"Get on."

Jeanre got on Argo and they all headed for the village.

"Well, one problem solved. What about Draco?"

"I took care of that. I sent a message to Perseus to send some troops to round up Draco and his men."

"Figures. Well, it's over. A village saved and a warlord stopped."

"But at what price? Three gods are dead. What do you have to say for yourself?"

Jeanre just sat on Argo not moving a muscle or saying a word. They reached the village soon after and was welcomed by Perseus' men. They saw Draco and his men lined up and held in chains.

"Welcome, Xena. What have you got here?"

"An added bonus. This woman is responsible for the death of three gods."

"Wait a minute, did you say-"

"Yes, gods. Keep a close eye on this one."

"Will do"

Xena told Jeanre to get off the horse and the soldier told one of his men to take her and put her in a cell. Xena walked up to Draco and stood right in front of him.

"Hello Draco. I told I would be back. I have a goodbye present for you."

Xena kneed Draco in the groin and hit him in the face. The soldiers laughed and Gabrielle joined in. Xena heard a strange sound in the air and raised her hand telling them to stop. It was sounds of screaming and Xena ran over to where Jeanre was being held. The guards that were watching her were on the ground writhing and the shackles that held Jeanre were cut through. Xena reversed the pressure point move that Jeanre put on them and noticed that Jeanre's sword was missing. Gabrielle ran over to join Xena and looked around.

"What happened?"

"Jeanre escaped."

"Great. All that for nothing. Hey, what's this."

Gabrielle picked up a piece of paper written in Diombic which read "I'll be back" and handed it to Xena.

"What do you we do now?"

"Pray for the next god she's after. Let's hope they don't suffer the same fate as Cupid."

"Will she be back?"

"Oh,I'm counting on it."
