Fury

"So you mean to tell me that the Avengers, Earth's mightiest heroes, were defeated by a kid." Fury's voice was frighteningly low. He honestly couldn't believe what he was hearing.

"I told you," Thor said, shrugging, with a smirk playing on his lips.

"You're a god, you could have beat him! Why didn't you help?!" Fury's voice got louder with each word.

"Oh, no, I would never be able to defeat Perseus."

"Whatever. I gave you a job and I want you all to do it. Bring me the boy."

"I can convince him to come, but only if I go alone," Thor said.

"Then do it. Now. Go."

But after Fury sent Thor for the boy, someone with a higher status called him. Fury now had to fulfill that person's order, even if he didn't approve. He had to do it.

And those orders involved bringing Perseus Jackson to Stark Towers.

Fury sighed and muttered to himself in his empty office, "I truly hope you have a plan, Thor."

Percy

Percy was having fun visiting his mom and Paul. She had made blue cookies and he was enjoying them while they chatted. At least until the doorbell rang. Fun never lasted long when it came to Percy.

Outside the door was none other than Thor, but this time he was alone. He still wore the red cape, his hand tightly holding his hammer. Percy only raised an eyebrow.

"Can I help you?"

"Young Perseus-" the god was interrupted.

"Percy." Thor nodded once before going on.

"Young Percy, before I go on with the business that brought me here, I want to tell you that I admire you, and so does everyone in Asgard. You are a legend there." He bowed his head like last time. "Now, I need you to come with me, please. The mortals I work with believe you are a threat. Foolish thing to believe, I know, after all you have done for the world. I am deeply sorry for this."

"I'll go with you. You just have to promise that I'll be free to leave whenever I want to." He knew that if they tried to lock him, he would be able to escape anyway, he just wanted to lower the number of people he would hurt as much as possible.

"I promise. Now come, I will guide you."

Percy hugged his mother in farewell. He knew she had heard the conversation so there was no need to explain anything. Sally didn't like the situation much, having him leave after just coming back from war, but she understood he had to do it.

They both just hoped to see each other again soon.

"Can I put you handcuffs? My boss will kill me if I don't," Thor asked awkwardly. The demigod just shrugged, knowing fully well that handcuffs wouldn't give him any disadvantage if he had to fight or escape.

They entered Stark Tower, Percy in handcuffs, and Thor headed to the elevator. In the moment Percy noticed that, he stopped dead in his tracks.

"I'll take the stairs, thanks." He had had some bad experiences with elevators; he didn't use them anymore. Thor looked confused at first, but then seemed to understand. The arch and the Doors of Death. Bad memories.

They headed up for about 60 floors before finally reaching the place they were supposed to go to. Needless to say, none of them were out of breath.
