11. Oracle Time
Zayn and I ran into the big house. Ceci, Niall, Louis, Liam, Harry, and Chiron were gathered around the ping pong table talking.
“Hey guys.” I said walking up with Zayn beside me
“You saw it too?” Liam asked
“Yeah.” Zayn said
“We must ask the oracle.” Chiron said “She will know.”
“Rachel isn’t here yet is she?” Ceci asked
“Who’s Rachel?” Harry asked
“Our oracle.” I explained
“Rachel showed up yesterday.” Chiron said
“Where is she?” Niall asked
We turned and saw our oracle, the curly red hair I knew too well. Rachel walked up to the table. She rubbed her eyes, her sticking up in odd places. She was still in her pj’s.
“Well, what are we going to ask her?”
“Rachel, what does the yellow blue thingy mean?” I asked
Suddenly, Rachel doubled over, before she shot up, her eyes pure green while the green mist surrounded her.
Seven half-bloods shall see the sign,
And follow their path to reach the north line.
The stolen item shall find its home,
So that the love will be accepted, shall be free to roam.
Rachel gasped and fell to the floor. Zayn caught her and pressed his hand to her forehead.
“She’ll be alright.” He said, carrying her to a spare cot in the big house.
“So, what does that mean?” Louis asked
“Well seven half-bloods, that is an easy part.” I said “We are the seven half-bloods who was the sign.”
“Make sense.” Liam said
“What about following the path and reaching the line?” Ceci asked
“The north line. Like a border or something.” Harry said
Everyone was deep in thought before Niall jumped up and yelled “CANADA!”
We all look at him.
“What?” I asked
“Well, the north line. Harry said boarder, and Canada is north of us.”
“Good job Niall.” Louis smiled
Niall blushed and smiled.
“What about the stolen item?” Harry asked
“Well umm, I may know.” Louis said “My father was talking to me. And he said that the most powerful item in the universe was stolen again.”
Oh crap. Not again.
Chiron and I exchanged glances and I felt a bead of sweat trickle down my face as it paled.
“That has to be only one thing.” Ceci said grimly
“What?” Zayn asked
“Zeus’ master bolt.” Chiron said looking at me
Everyone stayed quiet for a while.
“But, the prophecy said that it shall find its way home!” Liam said
“Yeah but sometimes, the prophecy has a double meaning.” I explained
“And love. Does that mean me because I’m the son of the goddess of love?” Harry asked
“I highly doubt that.” I said “Because it says to be ‘accepted’ in the prophecy.”
“So. Tomorrow, you seven shall leave on your quest. You may all go back to sleep now.” Chiron said leaving the room.
