Every story begins at birth but for me it started after me dying. For 17 years I've live my life as a human and honsetly I thought to myself sometimes "Why wasnt I born a dinosaur or even a dragon. Goblin seems fine too". I was born poor always out in the street trying to make a living. There were even time I had to look for leftover food in garbage bins just to fill my stomach and dining together with me were dogs. Lived a life similar that of a dog so what difference there is between me and a dog. No, even dogs were treated better than me at least some passer-by would throw them food while what I got was disgust and spit on my face. So when my time finally came, I accepted it with pleasure. But it seems that there is still another chance! And now in front of a strange figure with godly powers. I humbly protates myself. "Please turn me into an animal!"

I am average in almost every way (or so I thought). Average looks, average grades, and average family. But one day this System changed it all... ___________________________________ English is not my first language so I'm not that good at it. So if you ever see some mistake in my wording you could and please comment at the chapter you found it. This is also my first book that I wrote with a plot, so I am still not that good when it comes to writing so please bear with it as I will try to make it readable...
All three of the great Greek Tragedians have written plays about the bloody chain of murder and revenge within the royal family of Argos. Yet theirs is in fact not a story of tragedy, but rather one of redemption. As they move from darkness to light, from rage to self-governance, from primitive ritual to civilized institution, their spirit of struggle and regeneration becomes an everlasting song of celebration to be heard throughout the ages. Forming a discourse set against the emergence of Athenian democracy out of a period of chaos and destruction, the Orestian plays are compelling stories of the tensions between our obligations to our families and the laws that bind us together as a society. In the beginning, we witness how a king’s decision to sacrifice his daughter and turn the tide of war inflicts lasting damage on his family, culminating in a terrible act of retribution. In the aftermath of regicide, we behold how a son must set out to avenge his father’s death by committing a most egregious sin. In the end, the sinner is tormented by supernatural powers that can never be appeased, but ultimately finds redemption and ends the curse on his house once and for all. Woven through all of this is the story of a friendship so close that it elevates itself to brotherhood - Where the blood of the covenant is shown to be indeed thicker than the water of the womb. In this very brief twelve-chapter modern rendition of the Orestian plays, I have chosen to place my focus mainly on the lives of the characters Orestes and his best friend Pylades. The chapters, each around 2000-2500 words, are split up evenly between them in first-person narrative. I hope that you will come to enjoy reading this heartwarming story, but more importantly, that you see how the conflicts portrayed in the story, whether human or institutional, are still much very relevant to our societies today. Note on Sources: The details of this story is very loosely based on The Oresteia by Aeschylus, who was one of the three great Greek Tragedians (though this story is not a tragedy). And I mean very loosely. Other sources that I referenced for detail and inspiration are Mythology by Edith Hamilton, Electra by Sophocles, and Iphigenia in Tauris by Euripides. You may also find that I have quoted some of these works, and others (such as Shelley's Ozymondaeus), without citations (average of 1-2 such quotes per chapter). I did this because I do not have the ability to describe certain scenes nearly as well as some of those writers. If you read a particularly beautiful piece of prose here, chances are it's probably stolen lol.
