8. Healers

I woke up the next morning to the sound of foreign voices. I opened my eyes and looked around, Thalia had been taken from the room during my slumbering hours. I looked around for answers and found that no one I knew was in the room with me. My familiar back-home-but-on-Olympus room was filled with little medical gods, they looked like goats with human heads and hands. They had human medical equipment but they didn't wear any clothes.

"Why are there goats in my room?"

"We're the medical satyrs. We've come to heal thee. Now Goddess Aglaia, we've heard much abaaaout you. Sorry sometimes my beastly half gets ahead of itsbaaself."

"Its fine. But where is my Soul Pet, Thalia?"

"She is being healed as we speak. Now rest your head upon your pillow, and when you wake you'll be good as new. We satyrs take, our jobs, as seriously as we take cake. Now as you listen to my words, you'll visit the mystical land of our woods. There you will sing and dance, and play the flute. When you wake, you'll be able to bake, your boyfriend in a cake! So don't fret now, Ambrosia is on the way, to take to our special place that no human can venture for its only for the injured adventure."

I didn't want to go to sleep but his words did lure me to a different place beyond discription. A place where nymphs ran free, and only injured Gods and mystical creatures roamed. I saw a griffon, a hippogriff, and some odd looking snakes. A beautiful nymph came up to me, and I recognized her from my dream in the coffee shop that seemed like a million years ago now.

"Hello Aglaia. My name is Nymphaeta the Nymph of Healing. Come with me and learn the sacred dance of my people."




I paced back and forth in front of the mirror Aglaia first appeared in, silently calling her name. Nothing happened. Sebastian said he tried to call for her but she never came. She told me she would always come unless something horrible happened to her. I needed to contact her, to be sure she was safe. I turned to make another journey in front of the mirror when it started to glow pink. Aglaia would glow purple. Was I going to meet her mother? Aphrodite! She appeared like magic, and actually materialized so I could touch her if I wanted.

"Are you Aphrodite? Aglaia's mother?"

"Yes I am."

"Is something wrong with her? Sebastian tried to call her to him, but she wouldn't come."

"She was kidnapped by Hephaestus and held against her will by a magical rope. The one used to imprison my father so many milennia ago. She is out of commission for a few more days and I will be offering my services if need be. So just go to your mirror and say my name four times."

"Why four?"

"Why there are four chambers in the heart is there not?"

"Well yes. And four stops in the drawing of a heart. You have the indent, the two curves and the point at the end where the two curves meet."

"I never thought of it that way. I will call you if need be. Aphrodite, before you go. Could you do anything to stop my parents fighting?"

"I think I can." she turned away from me, and blew a kiss down the stairs. I could _see_ the air inside of the blown kiss, there we dancing baby cherubs, with Love Arrows at the ready. Amazing.

"Thank you Aphrodite. I want to see Aglaia, could you bring me to her?"

"My father wouldn't approve, but he loves his granddaughter so if you think it will help her I can bring you to her.
