“Well that’s a little depressing” I grumbled. Kronos merely chuckled; something that is unusual for him. “I find it ironic. Your greatest enemy.. Now your closest friend?” We pondered that thought for a minute before Kronos mentally snapped his fingers to get my ADHD mind back on track. “Well-“Kronos began. “Back to the destroying any ties thing” I said dryly.
“Where is a place you hold dear to your heart?” Kronos asked. I mentally replied “Camp Half- Blood” “I knew it would be that wretched place” Kronos sighed. “Why do you ask?” I asked. “That will be the place we will do the process” Kronos said simply. “What process?!” I asked, exasperated. “In order for us to begin the host process, you must renounce your family and loved ones.” “And just how will we do that?” I asked. “With the necklace around your neck and the flower in your pocket” Kronos clarified.
Chiron had decided to IM Poseidon, so now the entire godly family was squeezed into the tiny Poseidon cabin. We were still keeping an eye on Percy; so far nothing new has happened. “What is the meaning of this-“Zeus said loudly before being shushed by Thalia. He gave her a look that clearly said “How dare you disrespect your father like that!” But Thalia wasn’t paying attention. She, like me, was staring intently at the screen.
“Where is a place you hold dear to your heart?” Kronos asked Percy. Percy tilted his head and seemed to be thinking. “I knew it would be that wretched place” Kronos sighed. What “Wretched place” could he mean? “Why do you ask?” Percy asked. “That will be the place we will do the process” Kronos said simply. “What process?!” Percy asked, seeming exasperated. “In order for us to begin the host process, you must renounce your family and loved ones.” I choked and Poseidon looked pained, glancing at Chiron. “And just how will we do that?” I asked. “With the necklace around your neck and the flower in your pocket” Kronos clarified. I saw Percy subconsciously reach for his camp bead necklace. But what could the flower be?
“And what are we going to do with them?” Percy asked stiffly. “Were going to burn them at the place you hold closest to your heart” Kronos explained. We all glanced around at each other; where could this place be? “Well can I at least get a night’s sleep before we set out on this perilous journey?” Percy complained. “Fine. We will set out in the morning” Kronos reasoned. Percy layed back and closed his eyes. “Night, gramps” Percy mumbled. Every demigod in the cabin burst out laughing; receiving dirty looks from the Gods.
Since Percy was currently sleeping, we all decided to have a meeting inside the cabin. “What do you propose we do about my…son” Poseidon had to force the last word out. “Well isn’t it obvious?” My mother Athena said disdainfully. She hated being in a cabin that worshiped her rival. “We execute him. Therefore ridding the world of Kronos new host” “That’s my son!” Poseidon argued. “Your son has gone over to the dark side, Poseidon. No saving the little punk now” Ares put in his two cents. “May I remind you all my boy.. Luke” Hermes forced out his name. “Was able to be persuaded to rejoin us, in the end. Maybe there is hope for young Percy too” Athena looked doubtful, but she nodded her head. “I guess we will just have to keep an eye-““Wait hold up” Thalia interrupted the maiden Goddess. “How did Percy get this way anyway? What caused him to join Kronos?” “Nobody here knows-“Poseidon began. I shifted uncomfortably in my seat. “I do” Apollo suddenly spoke out. Everyone turned towards him. “You all did” He clarified. “What do you mean..?” Zeus began when Apollo touched Poseidon, and surprisingly me, on the fore head.
