25. Everything gets ten times worse

Annabeth narrowly dodged the empousai at the last second, although Helena wasn't quite as lucky. The acid from the empousai's tongue ripped through Helena's body. "Helena!" Annabeth screamed in alarm, "oh Gods, are you okay?!" she screeched as she fought off the minotaur and a Cyclops. The final two Cyclops' surrounded Annabeth and she thought she may not make it. For the fourth time in her life, Annabeth wondered whether she would make it out of this mission alive. But then, she remembered that this was the fourth time she'd felt this way, and every other time was worse. "Annabeth! Annabeth!" Helena yelled. "ANNABETH!" she tried again and yet again she got no response from the blonde. "ANNABETH!" Annabeth finally looked at her, out of wonder rather than anything else. "Helena, please not right now. Kind of in the middle of something." she shouted back to the daughter of Poseidon. "I know, just move" "That's kind of hard to do right now Helena" "Annabeth, move!" "Helena, I can't! I'm surrounded!" The pain in Helena's body was fading. If she could just-. "Annabeth, please just MOVE!" Helena finally got to her feet. Maybe if she angled it right she could get to Annabeth and not take one of the Cyclops' with them. There wasn't enough time. She had to do it. "ANNABETH. MOVE!" she lunged for Annabeth and the pair fell just as the ceiling above them crashed, collapsing on top of both Cyclops'.

 

Annabeth realised Helena's discomfort, but she realised something more important too. "Helena, I know this is going to hurt. Trust me - I know first hand how much this is going to hurt - but I need you to do something for me, okay?" Helena looked at Annabeth. "Okay?" Annabeth asked again, having not received a reply. "Yes. Okay." Helena told her with a less-than-enthusiastic nod. "Good. Okay. I need you to pick up that sword, okay?" Annabeth looked at Helena in the eyes. Helena suddenly had the realisation that the empousai were gaining on them. "Okay, sure. I can do that. The pain's almost gone" The last sentence didn't sound very truthful as she winced, picking up her sword. Annabeth saw this but she too, knew there was no way she could be too empathetic at that exact moment - they needed to get past these monsters. This was just their first task set by the labyrinth. There was plenty more to come - they both knew that. Helena made eye contact with Annabeth. The two decided simultaneously to turn around, swiping their swords to the ground as they did so and swipe the legs of two empousai. Acid was spat like water in a jug over the two demigods but they continued, doing their best to avoid each other's blades as they dodged the acid. The empousai circled the pair for a while before they both saw that all three empusai had damaged spots. Helena saw that one had a wounded side and decided that that would be the best place to attack first. Annabeth saw that another had a torn cartilage in their right shoulder. They both let the empousai circle for a while, letting them believe that they were in charge. Both demigods lunged, and hit the wounded spots of both empousai in front of them. The two shattered like glass, leaving piles of dust in their wake. Only one was left, and Annabeth and Helena smirked before attacking. This was going to be fun. "You take the head, I'll have the body" Annabeth sniggered. "Oh, you're too kind" Helena laughed in reply. They both lunged and swiped and before they knew it, they were surrounded by puddles of dirt, just sitting at their feet.

 

"Thanks for saving my butt out there." Helena told Annabeth. "It's fine, you get used to it after being around Percy for so long" the slightest eye contact made the two burst with laughter. "But seriously, thank you. I'm sorry you had to deal with the first lot on your own" Helena told Annabeth. "I just hope you're okay." "Yes, honestly I am. Fine I mean." She gave Annabeth a weak smile. "I'm glad to hear it" Annabeth smiled back. They had been walking the labyrinth for hours, in the hopes they would find at least something. The occasional arrow would try impaling them but both had incredibly good instincts. A few walls fell but nothing too bad happened to them during their journey. "Who do you think it was? The person that took it?" Helena asked Annabeth. She knew it possibly wasn't the best time but Helena wasn't sure when the best time would ever be. The best person to ask would be Annabeth. "I have a feeling - but it's never a good feeling." Helena wanted desperately to know. She needed to know. "But who? Annabeth, please." Annabeth sighed and Helena felt a slight accomplishment - no one made Annabeth give up that easily. "It's not good - but I have a feeling it's your brother." "What?" "Not Percy - Gods no." Annabeth said. "WAIT. Tyson?!" Helena half-yelled. "No. Not Tyson..." Helena looked at Annabeth.
