I watched the assassin out of the corner of my eye. His face is pale. He stared at the spot where we all saw the Iris Message.

"Well, today is an interesting night," Chiron suddenly said. "But I suggest for the campers to go back to their cabins. It is almost curfew, anyway."

There were a lot of mumblings and protests, but they still did what the centaur had told them. Soon, the clearing only has Chiron, the Seasons, the Army, the Assassin, and I.

Chiron looked at me. "You may discuss what has occurred tonight. I will tell the harpies not to eat you. When you are done, the Chaos Army can stay at the Big House, since it has enough rooms to fit all of you."

And with that, he left.

No one spoke after the centaur left us alone. We just stole discreet looks at the Assassin. Finally, Summer broke the silence. I guess he just can't keep his mouth shut.

"So," he said. "What are we going to do now?"

His words were followed by silence. Summer looked away quickly, trying to hide his embarrassment.

Lucky for him, Autumn soon answered his question. "Synn sounds like she's in trouble."

"I know," The Assassin said. "She never told me to reveal our identity to others."

I furrowed my eyebrows. "Why?"

He just shrugged. "I doesn't matter. The rest of you can go now. Delta, Kappa, I need to speak with you."

I exchanged looks with my second-in-command. Both of us were thinking about the same thing. Why would he want to talk to us now?

I waved my hand at the Army, and they left. Kappa and I moved closer towards the Assassin.

"I'm Paenitet," he said, looking up.

I tilted my head. "Okay."

"I did not ask you to go here so that I can tell you my name," he said seriously. "It's about who you are."

Kappa narrowed his eyes. "What about us?"

"Everyone in your Army is dead, right?"

I nodded slightly. "Yeah. What about that."

"I think I know who you are. But if you're really who I think you are, then I need to tell you something…"

I opened my eyes and stretched. Sunlight had already flooded the room. I thought back to what happened yesterday.

I wonder why the lieutenant of Chaos looked like that. Also, what could Paenitet want with Delta and Kappa?

I shook my head to clear these thoughts out of my mind. Then, I stood up and got dressed.

Maybe you're thinking, What? Did he just change his clothes after waking up?

Well, yes. The Seasons do not need to take a bath. It is one of the perks of being a Season.

I walked out of the room and headed downstairs. I walked out of the house and went to the Dinning Pavilion.

The others are there already. Some of the early risers from the campers are already eating breakfast. Oh well.

I sat down next to Summer. He looked like he just finished a bag of skittles.

"Good morning!" He said cheerfully. "How's it going?"

I ignored him.

Summer huffed, and went back to chatting with Lee Fletcher, who decided to sit with us today. The sight just feels weird for me. The supposed-to-be-dead son of Apollo talking to the supposed-to-be-dead son of Hephaestus.
