Me and the other guys were still in room we woke up in still trying to process everything that has happened when a Japanese American wearing Greek armor came into the room with a pile of clothes.
"I'm Ezekiel Nakamura son of Nemesis." He said placing the clothes on the couch
"Um hi." Luke greeted him warily
"Don't worry I'm not going to threaten you or anything. I'm waiting for a friend to rescue me like you guys." He said smiling slightly
"Really?" Ashton questioned
He nodded and then motioned to the clothes "You guys should change so we can go get your weapons and armor ready for training."
"Who are we training with?" I asked hoping it wouldn't be Kelly, Ben, or Justin
"With me. I'll be outside waiting." He said before walking out
"He seems nice." Calum said going through the clothes looking for something he liked
The rest of us followed his example grabbing the clothes before quickly changing before walking out of the room.
The four Boybanders walked out of their room to see Ezekiel leaning against the wall messing with a sword at his side. He looked up to see the four guys staring at the sword wide eyed.
"Is that real?" Ashton asked
Ezekiel tossed the sword to Ashton who caught it but was shocked by the amount of weight the sword had. "Did you think we face monsters without weapons. Anyways let's go to the armory to get you sized for your armor and a weapon." Grabbing his sword back he began to walk down the hall. The 4 guys looked at each other before rushing to follow after Ezekiel who was waiting for them to catch up. Ezekiel led them to the armory room (In reality was a second Grand Ballroom) which had weapons and armor everywhere. One section had chairs and tables of different sizes of armor, shields, helmets, etc. The other side had weapons everywhere.
"First let's get you guys armor." Ezekiel said motioning them to the different sizes of armor. He pulled a few sets of armor and handed the boys each a set.
“Whoa! This stuff weighs more than I do!” Luke said putting it on
“How can you fight with this stuff?” Calum asked holding his armor
“Hey, you either wear it or you get killed without it.” Ezekiel said straitening Calum's armor
They looked up at him, fear in their eyes. Ezekiel sighed and walked over to the weapons side and handed Michael a sword. Michael weighed it in his hands and smiled.
“Does it feel okay?” Ezekiel asked
“Yeah. It’s great.”
Ezekiel smiled and handed armor to all of them and made sure it fit them right. Then he let them chose weapons before leading them to an abandoned training area.
Leading them to straw armor wearing dummies Ezekiel showed them basic sword movements before letting them try on their own correcting them when they were wrong or showing them a new technique.
~Minor Timeskip brought to you by Rogue Venti~
All the boys were tired and sweaty after the intense workout given by Ezekiel.
"It's time for dinner." Ezekiel said standing up from his position against the wall
The 4 guys nodded and they all went to their room finding out that the room in front of theirs was Ezekiel.
"Wash up then I'll take you to eat." He said before he entered his room
The 4 followed his example and went to wash up in their new room which seem to have expanded while they were gone.
~Another Minor Timeskip brought to you by all the crazy dedicated Boyband Fans out there~
Ezekiel walked out of his room to find the Boybanders waiting for him in the hallway on their phones.
Ezekiel swiftly grabbed them out of their hands causing them all to protest "Monsters use the Internet to track demigods down. I can get you some that don't attract monsters, but not right now at least. So let's go get dinner unless you guys don't want to."
"Let's go I'm starving." Michael said
The other three nodded and followed Ezekiel who led their way to the cafeteria.
When they got there the boys except Ezekiel were shocked. Monsters and a few demigods dresses in armor were all eating.
A group of hellhounds were eating what looked like to be ground beef from large bowls. In one table were empousai drinking cups of what they hoped was wine and not blood and chatting together. Ezekiel led the boys towards the food handing them each a plate before he filled his own plate with food. The four guys filled their plates before following Ezekiel who had chosen a table near a large window that gave a view of the ocean. Sitting down everyone began to fill their stomachs after the intense training they had.
"Get used to all of this. Cause this is how everyday is going to be until we get a quest or something." Ezekiel said motioning with his hand to everyone in the cafeteria
"Have you been on a quest before?" Ashton asked
"Not in this life at least. In my previous life on the other hand I have." Ezekiel said cryptically
The four looked at each other in confusion, but continued eating.
