You watched Percy and Jason fight the giants.
On one hand you wanted to help them, but on the other one you were actually glad that you weren't – up in the emperor's box you were safe and if you'd been down in
the arena, you wouldn't have been anything but a hindrance anyway.
So you just watched, still weak, but getting stronger with every moment.
You asked yourself why the god wasn't helping them. He was an enemy of the giants, too – didn't he cared if they won?!
You got angry at him. Still, you were actually really scared of him -the feeling of power around him confused you.
If you thought too long about your anger, you'd probably attack the god or do something similarly stupid.
Instead, you focused on the fight again.
Suddenly a shadow felt over you.
A ship, a flying ship, descended from the sky. I was built in an ancient greek style, made out of wood and bronze.
You had seen it before and even – like everyone back at Camp Half-Blood – helped to build it:
The Argo II.
The ship fired at the arena.
Jason and Percy ducked as the explosion rocked the Colosseum.
The giants were nearly knocked out by it.
The lares cheered as the ship landed.
You saw Leo standing at the helm, along with two other teenagers you didn't know.
One of them was a tall asian looking boy. You guessed he was about 15 or 16 years old.
Next to him stood a smaller girl. She was pretty, with dark skin and hair. She seemed to be a bit younger than the boy. They must have been from the other camp, from the romans.
Coach Hedge, the satyr who was send to surveillance the demigods, stood at the firing platform.
Percy yelled something at the emperor's box you wasn't able to understand. The god disappeared and you saw him appear again down in the arena. He walked to the edge of the lake, which suddenly dried out. He raised the thing in his hand- you suddenly remembered it was called a thyrsus.
The crowd jeered and hollered. You saw how everyone of them pointed their thumbs down.
The god smacked the giants head. The corpse turned into dust. As the ghosts screamed even louder he walked to the second giant.
He tipped him on the nose and the giant crumbled to ashes.
The lares threw confetti at the god who stood there as id he had just saved every single person on earth.
You, Nico and Piper got up and, leaning on each other, climbed down to the arena. You were able to walk slowly, but you were in no shape to run or even fight anything.
The cheering crowd had disappeared and everything got quiet in a sinister way.
You still heard noises from the outside , cars and lots of people – after all Rome still was a modern city, but it all seemed damped.
The fake mountains and animals turned into mist and it quickly looked like just a bunch of ruins again.
As you came closer to Jason and Percy you noticed that the crew of the Argo II had also joined you.
'Well', said the god. 'That was fun. You have my permission to continue your voyage.'
'Your permission ?' Percy snarled.
'Yes. Although your voyage may be a little harder than you expect, son of Neptune.'
'Poseidon' Percy corrected absently. 'What do you mean about my voyage?'
The god ignored him and turned to you. 'And you, my dear.. I'm sorry, but you have to go back.'
'Back where?' you asked angrily. Who was he to decide about your life?! 'And why?'
'You are powerful, daughter of Kronos.'
You noticed how Percy looked sharply at you, gripping his sword tighter.
'But your time here is over.' the god continued. 'The camp will need your abilities soon, but you'll have to recover first.'
'How will I get there?' you asked. 'I will send you'.
'What about Nico ?'
'He has another quest to pass.'
You wanted to argue, but stopped. After all, that was a god you were talking to.
You turned to Nico.
'You will hurry, OK?'.
He smiled. 'Sure.'
'If not' you said, 'I will come and get you out of whichever mess you're into then.'
He laid one hand on your cheek and leaned closer. You closed your eyes as your lips met.
His were, as before, cool, but they seemed to be closer to your temperature. You laid one hand around his neck as Nico held you at your waist and pulled you even closer to him.
Suddenly you remembered how many people were watching you and you blushed.
You took a step away from Nico.
The god cleared his throat. 'Are you ready then?'
You and Nico held eye contact.
'y/n' he said.
'Goodbye', you whispered. 'See you soon'
You still looked into his dark eyes when he and everything around you started to fade.
You closed your eyes when you felt the floor disappear.
Shortly afterward, you felt that you sat on a sandy ground.
You opened your eyes and looked at a nightly beach.
You were back at Camp Half-Blood.
Hearing the waves break at the shore, you stood up and walked towards the cabins.
