You are the River XANTHUS (aka SCAMANDER). You have had enough. Your streams are choked with the corpses of men slaughtered by Achilles. You attack him, roaring like a bull. Your angry waters overwhelm him, and he can't escape your flood. Even he cannot run fast enough to outpace you, and he has to pray in terror to Zeus.
