《Legend’s Second Chance》[Legend’s Second Chance] - ∆Chapter Four∆

The sea of persians sallied forwards right towards me. My Spartan brethren were in formation beside me. When our forces collided, I cut left, right, and stabbed fourth unceasingly. With each swipe of my spear a head or a limb was severed and with each lunge of my spear a heart was pierced.

The Persians simply had no armor. The only advantage they held was in numbers. There was no end to them. Like a hydra, with each man that was killed two more replaced him.

My Spartan brethren and I fought for honor and for our families who could not protect themselves. We all knew that we would die, but we did not care.

In my past life I had been a warrior with no equal. I decided that I should perhaps train my brain in this life. That is what I told myself, but it was nothing but a lie to create some manner of drive to study math.

As I ate a cereal from the cabinet that had the most protein in it. I ate my cereal and drank several glasses of milk. Milk was extremely high in protein, so If there was a choice between any liquid or milk I would choose milk in a heartbeat.

My parents often wished that they had never told me the protein in lists of nutrients is what builds a persons muscles. I was overjoyed with this bit of knowledge and so I implemented it excessively.

Every time I do math, my brain melts out the sides of my ears. I can hear nothing, I think of nothing, and most frustratingly I do nothing. Helen calls this state the math coma.

After I ate breakfast, I worked out for thirty minutes. I did fifty pushups, fifty sit ups, and five minutes of front planks. My muscles burned and I loved that feeling.

After working out, I took a shower and then started my math homework. I had to do several sheets
