  I had talked with Ashton for a while before her eyelids drooped and her body softened. She had knelt over herself in sleep. I gently pushed her shoulders back, letting her lay on her back.

After that I went to Jason and curled up next to him. I closed my eyes and breathed in deeply before sleep.

I woke up the next morning to find Jason clutching at my waist, his eyes opened and panicked. He was breathing heavily and the panting was right in my ear.

"Whoa, Jase, what happened?" I said, smirking with concern at him. I put my hands over his hands at my waist.

"It's just-you-and her." Jason gestured to Ashton, turned on her side, sleeping with labored breaths.

"Whoa, what?" I propped myself up on my elbow so I could easily look down at Jason. It was a feeling I didn't get often, as Jason was a little taller than me.

"I-it was you and... Ashton you were-"

"Whoah, Jason, are you ok?" Jason was cut Ashton suddenly waking up, leaping over next to him. She looked me in the eyes, her own full of concern.

"Perce, what happened to him? Is he hurt?" Ashton asked. I shook my head.

"No, he's fine. Just a bad dream." I replied, looking over to Jason who was still pale but nodding along. Ashton's body seemed to relax and she let out a sigh.

"Good. Well, we need to get a move on, don't we? We have a long way to go if you two want to go see my dad." Ashton said kindly helping us up. I took her warm and stood up, brushing the dirt off my pants.

~This time skip is brought to you by: Hades; stay deadly my friends~

Jason, Ashton, and I had only been walking for about five hours before we ran into trouble. Towering before us was a giant, six headed Hydra. And, surprisingly, little Ashton was the one to take care of it. In less than an hour she had the monster disintegrating into dust and floating away before her.

"Wow Ashton, that was great." Jason said, clapping her on the back. He seemed a bit more talkative towards her since this morning, but was still acting strange.

"Thanks..." Ashton replied meekly. Jason and I laughed at her shyness and continued on. We chatted all the way into the darkness.
