Chapter 1- How Cheyennes Legend Began
1930- Delphi, Greece</b>
Among the Ancient ruins on an ancient temple an 20 year old woman travels alone into the entrance of an ancient temple. Her middle length brown hair is brown, she hides her dark brown eyes from the sun's rays with a dark brown Fandora hat that has a small felt red maple leaf pinned in the ribbon. The rest of her attire is a white cotton tank top, a suede light brown jacket, dress watch on her left wrist, a belt, brown pants and boots. Hidden by her jacket on another belt hanging loosely around her hips is; her cased revolver, a 6 foot long bull whip, and two small cases of ammo. Then on her back she wears a back pack with her tricks of trade inside.
Ive been doing this for years, she told herself in her Atlantic Canadian accent, But this is the first time doing it alone. The woman then found the entrance of the Oracles sacred temple, as she went down she can feel a strange feeling in her heart, this could change her way of life. Well Cheyenne, you got to start somewhere. she told herself as she lit a torch and then took out her revolver as she went down the stairs that lead deep, underground.
Cheyenne then smelled an awful stench and sees an shadow hiding within the shadows. Cheyenne tilted her torch straight like a sword as she then saw a Cyclops. It placed its hand over its eye as it then charged her once she lowered the torch. Cheyenne smiled as she shot it in the eye, it fell down as it then died on the tiled floor.
One down, how many more to go? she chuckled as she traveled farther.

Meanwhile outside a group of Nazis come in not knowing another Archaeologist was way ahead of them. They traveled down and found the dead body of the beast.
<Looks like we arent alone here>. said the Commander in German. As they continued on their journey into the dark Labyrinth.
<Who can this person be Sir>? Asked the Soldier who was Second in Command.
<Some who is very experienced yet, very young>. said the Commander.
The Soldier whom was Second in Command did not dare ask why the Commander knew that this person was young. Yet he knew they were on an deadline to retrieve the artefact that their Leader wanted.

Meanwhile Cheyenne had made her way to the first trap. She noticed axes swinging from all directions; vertical, horizontal, diagonal, while there were some coming down like an guillotine. She didnt dare to count them, Cheyenne then threw a stone to notice that they were shaper than she had originally thought.
Whoa, gnarly. she spoke she returned her gun to its case, then threw away her torch as it was chopped to splinters by the axes only feet away from hers.
Over the sounds of the axes Cheyenne heard the faintly: voices and the heavy, hard footsteps of the Nazis who too were in peruse of the artifact she was after, although she heard their coming she wasnt 100% sure who they were yet.
Oh Lovely, Competition. she thought, Well whoever they are this should be fun. Cheyenne the concentrated as she timed the first pair of axes then ran through. One axe going diagonal missed her chest. She took a second to find out that her breasts werent cut off, as she did her signature check; Brain, Left breast, Right breast, Belt, phew Im fine she thought with an huge sigh of relief.
Phew, Im going to need these someday. she said, as she then went through the next two sets of axes, stopped then timed the next three sets, then made a run for it. She panted as she stopped to catch her breath. Then Cheyenne continued on this time she ran, fast through an tunnel of boulders.
After that trap, Cheyenne collected her thoughts as she quickly studied the wall of murals then the Greek text. She noticed that they were parts of it was from the Iliad, inserts of the Trojan War, and finally an carving of the prince Paris giving an Gold Leafed Apple to Aphrodite the goddess of love and beauty. Now she knew what the Artefact was it was Aphrodites Solid Golden Apple. Yet she knew she would have to kill a few sacred beasts to the Goddess.
Cheyenne then continued on as she heard the screams and yells of men far away as she then recognized the language they were speaking.
Germans. she said as she recognized the language, then she asked herself; Why does it have to be Germans, why not Americans just for once?
Cheyenne shrugged as then knew she had no choice but to continue running again. She didnt even notice that she had ran past one beast an Medusa whom was hiding in the deep dark shadows. The Medusa followed her, Cheyenne then suddenly stopped as she heard the sound of ten knives sharpening against each other. Cheyenne then noticed an silver polished shield, and a sword, she dove for it as Medusa attacked her, using the reflection as an guide, Cheyenne then attacked Medusa as she threw the sword like an boomerang as it sliced her head off. With an nasty hiss Medusas head rolled back into the shadows. As its blood poured a Black Mare formed out of the Medusas bleeding decapitated neck then blended with the shadows as it disappeared into thin air as it reared up into the air in front of Cheyenne then disappeared in the mist of shadows.
Cheyenne then continued on as she found herself facing two Nemean Lions, five times larger than an regular African Lion. Cheyenne took her gun as she shot them as they attacked and she resisted using her gymnastic abilities then she used her whip to jump out of the way, of the snapping jaws of the Lions.
Cheyenne was getting tired of this foolishness, she then took two grenades out of her pack and threw them in the mouths of the Lions. Cheyenne then landed as her whip loosened as he made a run for it as there was an huge explosion exploded behind her.
Then in an pool of water on an small man made island she saw the Actual Golden Apple of Aphrodite on an alter. She noticed an way over the pool to the alter an ledge, she smiled as she noticed her whip was still in her hand. She whipped it and glided over the water to the island, she rolled up her whip placing it back on her belt.
<NO>. cried the Second Commanding Officer whom appeared to be the last Nazi standing right where she once was.
Cheyenne blew him a kiss as she took the Apple. Suddenly there was an earthquake, Cheyenne kept her balance as the Island lifted up to the surface to an escape route.
