All Heroes Fall

Wood, Theft, and Olympus

I startled awake from my dream. My blissful, wonderful dream. Godsdammit Hades. Why does Tartarus have to be come between everything? Sitting up in bed, I held my head in my hands and just sat in silence, trying to remember his smell. It was so brief. It wasn't enough. But at least he was alive. How could I complain when he was still alive and breathing. A little shriveled up and tired, but he was alive. I had so many questions. So many unanswered. But at least I was able to tell him what he needed to know. I had a long day ahead of me. Might as well get going with it.

I dragged myself out of bed and ran to the breakfast hall in my pajamas with a new sense of urgency. I had to tell the others about my dream. I burst in through the doors to find everyone in attendence. Everyone except for Frank, but I'm sure Hazel could bring him up to date.

"I talked to Percy last night!" I blurted. The pancake Leo had been digging into fell from his mouth.

"Well," Piper said after a while. "What did he say?!" I took my usual seat and explained my dream. I told them how he was fine, but a little shaken up and dirty. I told them how I told Percy of our plan, and I told them about how he had to wake up, because something was attacking him. I stopped and filled my plate with two pancakes, some eggs, and strawberries. Four pairs of eyes cut into me as I made my offering to the Gods. As I started to eat my breakfast, Jason finally spoke.

"I guess this means we'd better hurry on up with our plan." I nodded.


"Hmm?" I smiled.

"You ready to go steal some wood?" Leo smiled evily.

"Hell yeah!"


"Leo would you stop humming! You're going to give us away!" I hissed. I swear to the Gods if he doesn't shut up I'll kill him.

"Sorry." He whispered. I didn't really believe him, but it got him to shut up. We were on Mount Olympus. The supply room was as big as two malls put together. Shelves and shelves of supplies. It was incredible. And it was all mine for the taking. Current projects had been pushed aside due to the fact that Percy was in Hell. Poseidon had argued against Zeus to let me halt the projects for a while. It had taken time, but it had worked. In the hurry to leave Olympus, Zeus had forgotten to take away the keys to the equipment room, and pretty much everything else on Olympus. The only real problem, would be smuggling the wood out. All of Olympus knew that I wasn't working on anything currently.

Leo, Hazle, Jason, Piper, Frank and I crept along the walls. Using my key I unlocked the door and stepped in. I emerged a few minutes later with a few planks of wood. It was only a couple minutes to the elevator, but that didn't mean I didn't need to come up with an excuse for the security guy in front. We silently walked. Toward our possible demise. Zeu's temper had been explosive as of late.

Leo pressed a button on his little remote. The little bastard had built it in an hour. It deactivated all security cameras. We were about to croos over into the elevator, when the exit man stopped us.

"Annabeth! I thought you were taking a break from all this architectual stuff sweetheart!" I smiled sweetly at Daniel, and nodded.

"I was, but I'm working on a little project with my friends here. We needed the wood to make it look pretty." I batted my eyelashes. "We'd better head out, Chiron will be wondering where we are. I'll talk to you when I get back on the job. Bye Daniel!" Piper, who had been staring intently at Daniel, smiled and waved. Daniel waved back, looking more confused than ever. We piled into the elevator and I gave Piper a high five. She'd worked on her Charmspeak, to be able to do it without actually speaking now. It was amazing how I was willing to just lie through my teeth for one guy. But it's worth it. He's worth it.
