Rosie couldn't bear it no more. She was tired of running. Her friends are out there waiting for the two of them to return with news. She was not going to disappoint them.

Gritting her teeth, she began to rise to her feet. Her eyes glowing in a bright shade of green.

"No. Stop with your endless lies!" She yelled at the man.

Ares and the man turned to look at her. Worry was apparent on Ares' face but she silently assured him with her eyes.

"Who do you think you are? To accuse and assume that what I say and have said are all lies is grounds for a punishment," the man said as he started to walk toward her. "Do you have any proof, Rosalyn?"
