The One Direction members with Paul, Ceci, and The Wanted members were at Half-Blood Hill.
"Stay safe." Ceci said hugging each one of them
"We'll try too." Liam said
Paul was placing their things in the van waiting for the boys. The Wanted members hugged them before walking back into camp with Ceci.
One Direction looked back at the camp before walking to the van. They got in and looked out the windows seeing that they were going back to their normal lives. Once they got on the plane to England they wanted to train, hunt for Ben and be back at camp.
"Kelly. Welcome to the Chimera." I said staring out of the window
I felt Kelly staring at me "I did it. I set the Pit Scorpion on Harry. He should be dead."
"Good. Then let's get out last boybanders on our side." I told her turning around to face her
"Katie is still at camp spying on Ceci and The Wanted members. One Direction left home. Luke and Giselle are on quest." Kelly informed me
"Good. Let's go get them now then." I told her
The two of us left heading to New York to get our new demigod recruitment's.
"So who are we picking up?" I asked as we were dropped off at a storage unit area by a satyr
I was in a lair and it was semi-pitch black. The only source of light was from the window high above me. I was in a warehouse; that much was obvious. I walked around, trying to find whatever I could to tell me where I was. That was when I saw him… strapped to a chair.
His face was bloody. A long slash went across his cheek bone. I barely recognized him. The boy was even frail. His hair was matted down and his eyes had a petrified look. His chocolate brown eyes that had made sure I didn't fall when my eyes had adjusted to the light when he opened my cell door.
"Where are you?" I spoke quietly. He looked up at me.
"In Canada," He said.
"We're coming to get you. Just hang in there a little longer."
"No!" He shouted fiercely. "They're worse than the others."
"I don't know. But they can freeze me up and then it takes days for me to thaw. I know I am near Niagara Falls. I can sometimes hear the roar of the waterfall."
"Me and friend are coming. We WILL rescue you." I promised
~End of Dream~
"A demigod in Canada. His name is Edmund Keynes. Ridro thinks he's a son of Athena. Ridro also reported that a giant took him." Giselle told me
"That's just great." I grumbled
"Let's just get my car so we can drive to Canada." Giselle said
We walked to the right storage unit where we found a black and blue veilside mazda Rx7 (gotta love the Fast and Furious trilogy). Giselle took out the keys opening it and got in. I followed after her (stealing the keys and getting in the drivers seat).
"Do you think the One Direction members stayed at camp?" I asked driving her car
"No. I think they went back to trying to live a normal life." She told me "I know where to look for Edmund."
I nodded staying focused on the road.
Driving to Canada… in a car… at least four hours… was…freaking…torture! I mean I loved being a demigod and all but the ADHD we had was not fun. At all. Me and Giselle talked about what I had missed like camp, books, camp, movies, new campers at camp, and places we want to go, which included how many new people that might be demigods we would meet. We didn't miss camp at all, right?
Finally, Giselle started to doze off so I was in complete silence. Giselle muttered something, and it sounded suspiciously like babe don't die meaning she was dreaming of a character she loves… again.
"Giselle," I shook her a little to wake her up. Surprisingly, she woke up pretty easily, but was a little disoriented at first.
"No don't die!" She said immediately. I laughed and she looked over at me, and innocently asking, "What?"
"Nothing. Hey, I'm stopping for gas. Do you need anything?"
"The bathroom!" Giselle exclaimed
"That's all?" I inquired.
"Yeah, maybe some snacks also." Giselle giggled
"What do you mean?"
"I mean like are you buying any food."
"Maybe depending the places," Giselle said
"True," I said pulling, into a gas station
"By the way, how long have I been out?" Giselle said yawning
"For about an hour," I answered. "I'll be right back."
I got out of the car and raced to the bathroom. I needed it like a rushing race horse! Once I had both used the bathroom, I bought some candy and soda before heading out to the car where Luke was waiting patiently for me. I hopped in and handed Luke his Skittles and Dr. Pepper. While I enjoyed a bag of Sour Punch and Skittles and Dr. Pepper. We had about four more hours until we arrived at Niagara Falls so I decided to stay awake with Luke.
Giselle was zipping through that bag of Sour Punch and Skittles causing her to be on a major sugar high. Of course, it was a good thing because she kept talking and that kept me awake while driving. It's not fun to be tired and driving. She was rambling on about some crazy conversation she had with Will and Sam. I listened and laughed because it was truly funny. After about two hours of constant babble, Giselle dozed off. I drove through customs without a hassle (thanks to some manipulation of the mist) and drove to a hotel. I quietly got out of the car and went to check in. Again, after some manipulation of the mist, I was able to convince the desk clerk that we were given a room for free for as long as we wanted. I went back to the car where Giselle was still out. I opened Giselle's door first.
"Hey, Gigi, we're at out hotel. Wake up," I shook her a little. Her eyelids fluttered open and she blinked. "Hey, sleepyhead."
"Hi," She replied, blinking some more. I rubbed her head and opened the passenger door getting our bags. She was quite touchy when you woke her up from a nap (long story…). Giselle got out of the car and we walked into the hotel, into the elevator, and when the elevator reached the top floor, which was our floor, we walked to our room. There were two adjoining rooms. We both decided to take that one so no matter what Giselle and I could go into each others room. It was six o' clock and none of us feeling up to going out to get some dinner decided to order room service. We devoured the food and once we had all taken showers and had gotten ready for bed, we crashed. I fell asleep when my head hit the pillow. I had some whacked out dream about me getting into a fight with a seal, and sadly, the seal was winning. How that worked out, I have no idea. I was just about to get slapped by the seal when I woke up to the sound of Giselle yelling quietly in her sleep. I leaped out of bed and ran to her.
"Giselle, wake up! Wake up! Giselle!" I pleaded quietly, holding down her flailing arms because I had a feeling getting punched by her would be worse than getting slapped by that annoying seal. She bolted up and breathed heavily. "Gigi, are you okay?"
"No, the dream… it was awful…" Giselle closed her eyes, obviously trying not to cry but she couldn't help it. Tears rolled down her cheeks. I sat down on her bed and wrapped my arms around her. She cried quietly and I held her the whole time. I asked her what the dream was about but she refused to tell me. I wanted to know what had scared her so bad.
"It's was the Titan war," She murmured.
"Memories?" I asked.
"It's okay, you're okay."
Slowly, she stopped crying and relaxed. I looked at her and knew she was asleep. I laid her down gently and left to go to my room.
The next morning, I went to the bathroom, brushed my teeth, and got dressed. I grabbed an apple from the fruit bowl taking a bite of the apple and yelled, "Ow!"
The apple was freaking fake.
I walked to Giselle's room to find her not in her bed. She was huddled on the window bench with the blankets wrapped around her. Her eyes were closed but tear streaks were dried onto her face.
"Giselle!" I yelled quietly, running over to her. "Giselle, are you okay?"
Her eyes opened and her brown eyes looked at me with curiosity.
"Luke, why am I on the window bench?"
"I don't know, why are you?"
"I wouldn't have asked you if I knew. I must have slept walk."
"Giselle, what happened?" I demanded quietly. I knew she was lying. I mean she was a daughter of the God of truth she can't lie for anything. "You never sleep walk."
"I… I had another night mare. I came to the bench because, well, I don't know, I felt safe. I didn't want to wake you up again."
"Giselle, I wish you would wake me up. I don't want you to be scared."
"Thanks. Help me up. I think my legs are asleep."
I lifted her up and she nearly collapsed but I caught her.
"I have no feeling in them at all," She laughed weakly. I lifted her up into my arms and laid her in her bed.
"Is there anything I can do for you?" I inquired worriedly.
"I'm fine, okay? I already have everything planned on how we're going to rescue Edmund."
I reluctantly left Giselle by herself and let her joined me at the table when she was ready.
