Seeking Happiness

Chapter 4

I sat on a pile of pillows and watched her… watched her pace, watched her panic, watched her stare into that dagger of hers. She tried to glimpse the future, what was coming tonight. Of course even if she knew what was coming I would never let her fight. Percy and I had our plan, Put the girls below deck, maybe even lock them in if we have too. We know what’s coming, and there’s no way we’re going to let them get hurt.

I finally had enough of the pacing, I walked over to her and took her hand and pulled her into a hug. “Look all of this worrying isn't going to help anyone. We’re all going to meet below deck and figure out what the plan is.” She nodded her head and squeezed my hand. I felt really bad tricking her like this. But I’m a leader, I do what’s best for the people I love whether they understand it or not.

I lead her to Annabeth’s room, the designated “holding cell” for the night. We were the last ones in there, everyone grouped together hushing reassurances. Then there was Leo, tinkering in the corner keeping to himself. I sat down in the only remaining chair and pulled Piper into my lap. “Look Piper, whatever happens next, just remember I love you. I don’t know what I would do without you.” She went to respond but I just pressed a finger to her lips. I nodded to Percy, giving him the signal.

He nodded back, letting go of Annabeth’s hand. “So as you know, we called everyone here to… uh… discus… our battle plans.” He walked over to the door of the cabin and the rest of the guys followed. Annabeth gave us a curious look, “Percy… What’s the Plan?” He gave her a pained look, “This is the plan.”

We all ambushed out the door. Percy started barking orders. “Leo guard the door, remember what we talked about! No one in, and no one out, under any circumstances! Frank go scout, turn into whatever you want but you make sure you report back to me or Jason when you know anything. Jason… Do your thing.” I winked and flew out into the air.I had to keep reminding myself that Percy was my equal. It usually would rub me the wrong way when he would try and undermine my authority. But tonight, what’s coming… it’s coming for him. Tonight is his battle, it’s his enemy, but there’s no way I’m going to let him fight it alone.

From my bird’s eye view I could see him on the main deck, concentrating on the water no doubt. There was one time before when we made a pretty wicked storm together, if it came to it we knew we had that in our back pocket. I wouldn’t mind just starting out with that, but Percy insisted that he needed to at least try to win this one on his own.

It was starting to get a little tiresome and boring, just flying in circles looking for any sign of attack. I was starting to descend back to the boat when a chill shot down my spine. Something was wrong, I don’t know how I know, I just do.

As soon as my feet hit the deck Frank and Percy rushed towards me. Percy eyes were crazy the way they always were before a fight, due to lack of discipline if you ask me. But that’s not all that important right now. “Jason, he’s almost here! Frank saw his ship about half a mile west of here.” I took a deep breath, there was no doubt in my mind we could win this fight. The only liability would be Percy’s biggest weakness. I sent a quick prayer to the gods to send him strength, “Alright, I guess now we wait.”

We stood back with all three of our backs to each other. Within minutes I saw the nose of the ship nudging its way through the light fog. Percy warned me that the ship had some pretty magical qualities, like for one wherever it goes heavy fog follows. Seems pretty cowardly if you ask me, hiding in the fog. They didn’t make any move to attack, they simply pulled up beside us.
“Jason, Frank, whatever happens he’s mine. Don’t interfere unless I tell you to.” He’s so stubborn, “Yeah, whatever you say man. “

A plank came through the fog and hit the deck with a loud thwack. We all jumped at the sound, he laughed as he immerged on our side of the plank. I assumed he would be a lot bigger, but according Percy he was pretty dangerous.

“Percy! How long has it been? You know since you killed me?” Percy’s nostrils flared, “Luke, this isn’t you. You know I didn’t kill you, it wasn’t my fault!” The man seemed to think that was funny, “Oh? And how about when you left me in Tartarus? You knew I was alive, yet you left me there. I doubt you even told Annabeth.” Whatever he saw on Percy’s face must have been confirmation, “What, don’t tell me you’re scared a little competition Jackson? Scared Annabeth may prefer me over you?” Percy drew riptide, “I’m not scared, not of you Luke?” Luke drew his own sword back biter, “Oh but you are scared Jackson, you’re scared of losing her. Don’t worry after tonight you won’t have to worry about it. I’ll kill you and she’ll be mine…”

Percy lunged at him, and a song of clashing swords began. Luke definitely had an upper hand when it came to combat but not by much. I wanted to help so bad but Percy told me not to. It would be so easy just to send a little breeze slowly pushing towards the edge. If Percy could just get him into the water.

Just then eight hellhounds stepped around them, encircling them baring their teeth at me and Frank. “What you didn’t think I’d let you get near the water did you? I’m not that stupid, and plus you have brought friends, I thought it only appropriate that I bring my own.” The scar on his face twitched near his eye as he lunged at Percy and the song resumed.

I looked around but I couldn’t find Frank, but then I counted and realized there were now nine hell hounds. One of them must be Frank. I drew my gladius and started at the first hell hound. They were strong and quick. Some I slew by sword others by storm. But by the time it was almost over I was bloody and on my knees trying to catch my breath. Frank was working on the last one, when I heard him cry out.

It was definitely Percy, and it definitely wasn’t a good sign.

Percy was on his hands and knees blood flowing from numerous wounds, the worst one right above his eyebrow flowing over his scalp. His black hair matted with sweat and blood. I tried to help but I literally couldn't move I was literally drained, I was beginning to pass out.

Tears were in Percy's eyes "Luke, you got to be in there somewhere. The REAL you. Come on man !" Luke just chuckled, "This is me Percy. It's ironic really, you could have saved me. But you ran to save Annabeth instead. Well now I'm going to kill you both..." Luke raised his sword above his head and I watched helplessly as the sword came down.

I read all of the books years ago, but I have recently been getting into fan-fics. This is honestly the best one I've read so far. Only request is more of Grover, other than that one chapter it feels like you forgot about him. But great read overall!
