-----Percy’s Point of View-----

It didn’t take long for me to fall asleep, but I regretted it as soon as the dream started.

******************************************************************************

The room was dark, and the floors were bitter cold. The only source of light was a single bulb in the center of the room, but the only thing visible was what looked to be a large brick wall. I tried to move forward, trying to find out what was happening, but I couldn’t will my feet to move forward. I squinted, trying to make out what looked to be attached to the brick wall. Then I figured it out; it was (Y/N). She was curled up in a ball against the wall. I couldn’t see her face, but I could hear her quiet sobs. She stayed that way for a moment until her head shot up all of a sudden, her bloodshot eyes darting around. She finally focused on one spot to her left. I could barely make out a silhouette coming ever so closely to her. (Y/N) shuddered and tried to scoot away, but the cuffs on her ankles and wrists only allowed her to move a foot or two.

“The time is drawing near. Your pathetic friends are going to come for you, just like I planned. I will squash them all out one by one!” a voice barreled.  It took a step closer, but I didn’t need the light to show me who he was. I already knew; Hades. I would never forget that voice.

“You will never hurt them!” she shouted but her voice wavered a bit. She looked genuinely afraid, and if it wasn’t for the mysterious force in my dream keeping me still, I would have pulled out Riptide and ran to her aid.

Hades laughed, and it felt like even death lurked in his warm breath. “We’ll see about that,” he said as he retreated back into the shadows he had emerged from.

******************************************************************************

I woke with a start, hot and sweaty. It was getting close to 8:30. I quickly managed to drag myself off the couch so I stood outside near the gate waiting for Annabeth and Grover to return. The sky had cleared, and the stars shone brightly in the darkness. They were mocking me. The one girl I had cared about was gone, but yet the stars continued to burn brightly, trying to outshine one another. Chiron was just walking over towards me when I spotted two silhouettes in the distance. They rushed over towards me, eager to tell me everything they had done, but I was the first one to speak.

“(Y/N) has been kidnapped by the Minotaur. We need to get to the Underworld and rescue her as soon as possible,” I said, not stopping for a breath.

“Wait whoa whoa whoa wait, (Y/N) was captured?” Grover asked, looking very confused and concerned at the same time.

All I could do was nod. It pained me to talk about her. Just thinking about what she was going through…I don’t even want to consider it.

At that moment, Chiron walked over to the three of us. “It’s good to see you both back here in one piece,” he joked but his eyes didn’t have their usual lightness in them. “I take it Percy has told you what has happened.”

Annabeth and Grover nodded in response.

“Now, going to the Underworld isn’t an easy task, as you all already know. However, I think I might have an idea on how to get you three in and out of there without using pearls this time.  Travel to Olympus. Talk to Hermes. Get him to tell you how he gets in and out of the Underworld, and use that knowledge to get (Y/N) back.”

All three of us looked at each other. It was a pretty good plan except for one thing: we wouldn’t know if Hermes would even tell us. That’s one of his biggest secrets. He’s not going to let just anybody know how he does it, especially a bunch of demigod teenagers.

Instead of saying this, however, we all just nodded.

“We better start packing and leave as soon as possible,” Annabeth said and she started walking toward the Athena cabin. I started walking toward my own cabin with Grover falling in sync right behind me.

“Do you really think this’ll work?” he asked.

I kept on walking. “I don’t know, but it’s our only hope,” I admitted.

We reached the Poseidon cabin, and I walked inside. I grabbed the blue backpack that was lying in the corner and started packing everything I thought we would need: some nectar, a bag of ambrosia, a flashlight, and a couple of extra batteries. Riptide was safely tucked away in my pocket where it usually was.

“Are you taking anything?” I asked as I zipped up the bag.

“I’ve already got everything I need,” Grover said as he showed me the reed pipes that were hanging around his neck.

I nodded and walked out of the cabin. Annabeth was waiting for me near the entrance of the camp with Argus waiting beside her. He started to walk down the hill to get the van ready as Grover and I made our way up.

“Took you long enough,” she said and crossed her arms, clearly annoyed.

“Unlike you, I’m not always prepared for a quest. I have other, more important things to do,” I snapped back. I didn’t want to argue with Annabeth but she was obviously not happy with either me or this quest.

“Let’s just go,” she said and jogged down the hill towards the waiting van. Grover and I looked at each other before running after her.

All three of us climbed into the vehicle; Grover in the middle with Annabeth on his left and me on his right. Annabeth stared out the window the whole ride, not saying a word to me or Grover. Grover bit his fingernails because he forgot to bring any tin cans for the trip. I, myself decided that it would be best to give Annabeth some space right now instead of making things worse than they already were. I tried to concentrate on the song that played from the speakers: Coldplay, I believe, but my mind kept wandering everywhere; what was happening to (Y/N); my problem with Annabeth; the plan; just everything. Eventually, I drifted off into sleep again. I had the same visions of (Y/N); curled up and chained to the wall. Hades wasn’t anywhere to be seen. All I heard was her soft whimpering and whispering my name softly. It pained me to see her this way, even if it was only a dream. I woke to the sound of squeaky brakes and the entrance to the Empire State Building.

I'm still working on the next chapter. I don't have my laptop right now so I'm not able to write it but I'm hoping to get it up soon. I should have written it sooner but I just haven't had the time. But don't worry, there will be more, I promise! :)
