Chapter 19 Jessica

Okay, so I knew more than I was letting on, but it was for our own good. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to use the finding spell or not. It was supposed to take us four months to find Annabeth and Juliet, but is that because of the spell or not. I'll wait till tonight and hope for a dream. Yeah, a demigod hoping for a dream.

Gem and Dæmon had to wait above land for us, and I was really going to miss talking to my dragon.

"Can't you just use the communicating thing?" Percy asked me when I voiced my unease at being so far from her.

"It's not that simple, Percy," Nico told him.

"Why not?"

I answered with, "It has to do with their age. They're too young for it to work."

I was lying, and Nico knew that, but Percy didn't.

"Oh, okay," was his reply.

We walked for hours before setting out our sleeping bags for the night. I passed out some jerky, and we went to sleep. Nico took first watch, and both of them agreed that I was not allowed to. I thought that was so stupid, but when two men agree about something like that, you just listen and pretend to sleep.

After about an hour, sleep consumed me. As was normal for a demigod, I had a dream. My dream was not far into the future compared to now. I was using the spell to find Annabeth and Juliet, but we didn't find them right away. The dream then shifted to my previous dream, but I noticed something I hadn't before. There was a blue arrow pointing us in the direction of their prison. As we reached them, something appeared. It looked like some sort of man, but he had three torsos. I thought Percy killed him once before. He wasn't supposed to reappear for three hundred years. Then I remembered the Giant war. He might have escaped and hid long enough to exact his revenge on Percy. I couldn't remember his name, but I planned to look it up as soon as I woke. I had all of the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus books in my bag. I had asked Lou Ellen to enchant my bag for me so that it was bottomless.

When I woke, there was a Cyclops staring down at me, and it was not Tyson.
