Hey, I read 'Mares' and I thought it was really good. Just a few grammar things to point out though:
~ At the start of the story, when you were describing the stranger, did you mean scared or scarred?
~ You don't need a comma when you said, 'the stranger said as he slowly and painfully walked, towards the boy'.
~ In the paragraph where you said, 'his eyes looked crazy and wild' etc. you forgot to put the 'o' in Porphyrion's name.
~ When you said, "Hurry your a long distance from the top," it should be, "Hurry, you're a long distance from the top."
~ Instead of 'venerable' I think you meant 'vulnerable' because venerable actually means respected...
~ It should be 'Goddess of Love' instead of 'Goddess of love' because love is part of her former title so it needs a capital.
~ Same with 'son of Zeus'. It should be 'Son of Zeus'.
~ I think if you broke up the sentence about the horses it would flow a bit better, eg. 'As he drew his sword, he was stopped dead in his path by a team of horses with blood-stained lips and dark, sunken eyes. They sent feelings of death and despair deep into his soul.' or something like that.
~ Maybe instead of saying, 'Porphyrion was being torn apart by the beasts' you could just say 'Porphyrion was torn apart by the beasts'.
The only other thing I would have done is add a bit more description and try not to rush things too much. I know this is difficult as you have a word limit, but it might help a little bit.
I really liked your story and I think the way you have done it is really clever! You have done the July Challenge theme really well and I liked how it started out with Peter thinking Porphyrion is on his side but it turns out he isn't, which is exactly what you need for the Challenge. I also like how you ended it, it left a bit of a cliffhanger and was a good story finisher. Great job, you have written an awesome story! (Which is saying something 'cause I don't normally enjoy reading stories based around Mythology!)
