Hey Soldier How are you doing said Uncle Apollo
I knew something was wrong. I could feel that Robin was in danger, I had been anxious about it.
But there was something which was hiding beneath all this melancholy.
You know when you have an empathy link you feel as if there is some sort of connection with the emotions. It's like you get to feel what the person at the other end of the Empathy Link is feeling. It is like you could sense it, whatever is happening with the other person.
I somehow knew Robin was angry really angry, he was miserable, He was hurting, but he was not afraid.
And when you know Robin, that's all you need to know.
Right now, I am thinking all of this, even though I am about to puke.
My Mother, Artemis called in my Uncle Apollo to escort us to the Camp. Hunters were gonna stay with us for now, till the further notice. By notice I want to signify if we are going to be alright or not. Probably if we are gonna be alive or not. So the situation was not quite ideal you know.
"HEY LOOK AT YOU!
LOOKING AT ME
OF COURSE WHO WOULDN'T AT THIS LOTTA HANDSOMENESS
YOU ARE AT MESS
AND YOU HAVE THE SAVIOUR
OH THIS MANY PEOPLE!
BUT MORE THE MERRIER!
WELCOME THE SLAYER OF PYTHON
THE MIGHTIEST OF ALL
THE GOD OF SUN
WHO IS ALWAYS UP FOR FUN
BOW OR DANCE
DO THE LATTER WITH ME
OH Y'ALL WITH ALL THE GRIMNESS
THAT I PITY
CMON MAKE YOURSELF FEEL
ALL THE PLEASURE ALL THE FUN
OH YOU KNOW WHAT,
ACTUALLY JUST KNEAL"
Well, this was pretty much Uncle Apollo's entrance extravaganza. Yup Alliteration.
After he was done with some flirting, My Mom showed him the look.
Believe me, YOU DON'T WANT THE LOOK.
And now, he was consistent of Thalia driving THE SUN CHARIOT.
Apparently, Thalia was terrible at it.
So now, you can pretty much know what I am going through.
While I was sitting there with my eyes shut. Uncle Apollo came and sat beside me.
" How is it going soldier?"
" Uncle, Robin is in an obnoxious situation, I can feel it with the empathy link and Mom has gone for some hunting. She didn't say more. I just feel like I am standing at the middle of a path. And the sky is all dark. It's a new moon day and I just cannot see what is next to me and for that matter not even what was behind."
" Hey don't think like that, You have the Sun my baby niece." Okay I want to just tell you this. YOU DIDN'T HEAR THE NAME HE CALLED ME.
And yes his dialogue' continuation, " I will be here don't worry about it, just relax from all the worry you gotta chill. Now tell me How is Margret?" Here it goes.
" You came here to ask that only right?"
" You wont the truth or my answer"
" Well anyways, Aunt May is good."
" Oh just tell her to pick her Iris Message sometime."
" You can un pick it? "
" She is quite capable, she has her ways."
" Okay I have plan, I will Iris message her sometime, after a minute you join me."
" I always tell Artemis, Marion is my favourite."
" Robin told me you said that to him once."
" He is a bad liar."
He winked at me, and then rushed towards Thalia because apparently the news was that a few countries were roasted.
Then as we were hurtling towards the Camp, apparently Thalia was still holding the steering and she pulled it downwards so hard, ouch!
The might sun chariot experienced something anew. Yup it got through wash, with the clear water of Lake back at my home, Camp Halfblood.
So after a while we all were going to the dining pavilion for dinner.
Nico sat along with Hermes Cabin since he was unclaimed for now.
I liked my original place at the Artemis Cabin Table, where I would sit with Robin and we could just pour down whatever was disturbing us and we would try to discuss solutions.
This feeling made me sick. Robin was not here anymore. I had tried several times to try and make contact with him through our Empathy Link, but he hadn't been replying. I knew he was there but something was definitely wrong. Even my mother was off to a secret mission of her own which was not any less risky.
I felt really guilty that I was here. Why didn't I go for Annabeth. I mean I know why, but why didn't I just go recklessly and force my way into. Okay I do realize how that sounds, but dudes, I am my brother's sister.
Robin learns from me, I will always say that J
Currently, the Hunters are sitting at the table, and I am standing near the entrance just thinking all this, and I feel so alone.
" Hey!" I turned to look who had called me.
It was Connor, Connor Stoll.
" Hey" I said back
" Wanna come sit with us?"
I never liked to be given attention when something was wrong. There was one term I'd rather not be called and that was weak.
" I am fine, its okay, you don't need to pity."
" I am not. I just figured that you'll find it better to sit with some funny, clever and nice people.
" Oh yeah? Sure I wouldn't mind sitting with y'all. But I will remember you saying that my Mom's hunter are not funny, clever and nice people. Haha"
So I sat down at the Hermes Table.
I caught Mr.D eyeing me but he didn't say anything, so all good!
I would certainly say, sitting at Hermes table was really fun.
I made sure to check my food before eating, boy ere they pranksters?
Connor seemed nice.
" So, what's with Luke and you?" He asked me.
" Uh um nothing"
" Was he your boyfriend?"
" Um nope."
" Did you want him to be?"
" Why are you asking me this?"
" Hermes kids are bound to be curious."
" Oh yeah?"
" Look, before I had seen, heard , Luke saying he liked you. But now you are saying he wasn't your boyfriend. So you rejected him?"
" You know you talking about all this, just sounds like you are a Aphrodite kid."
" You are saying I am handsome?"
" HAHAHA, so you are saying I am not handsome?"
" Clever. I should have seen this coming."
" Half Athena demigod calling me Clever, ACHIEVEMENT!"
Okay so he was hilarious.
" So you rejected him?"
" He told me that that he liked me. I told him that brothers are supposed to like their sisters and Robin is an exception though"
" I should have waited to hear that part."
" So you just went away after you hear him say that?"
" Well I didn't knew you would reject him. Nobody Rejects Luke."
" I didn't reject him, first of all. And even if I accepted or even reject him for that matter, Why did you really go away?"
" Half daughter of Athena, should have seen this coming."
" You are a son of Hermes, Connor. Youcould have stayed there without us even knowing you were there, So why don't you tell me?"
" Okay so"
Something was happening. Oh crap! Robin!
I passed out.
I could hear people shouting shrieking, and Someone picking me up, I think it was Chiron, and rushing towards the infirmary.
I could feel as if my face was on fire.
I felt a piercing pain in my head, and my legs and arms felt wobbly.
I could see Robin standing with cloth tied over his eyes, fire all around him, him saying.
" Marion, we are fine okay, I am gonna bring Annabeth and Mom back. You hear me we are fine I just have to do a couple of tasks for Atlas and the dumbass, but I need your help. I cant do this alone Mar, Listen very carefully, it is a PART. Now cmon I will die if you wont come. Love you"
" ROBIN!" I shouted.
I woke up. In the infirmary.
" Are you alright Marion?"
" Connor! Robin just told me it is a PART"
" He said it in a different accent, so it means it's a message. Call Annabeth!"
" Marion, Annabeth's"
" Oh yeah she she's gone"
" I get it I get it!"
" What" I asked him perplexedly
" It is a word play. If you put the words of Part in another order, you get Trap. The message must be a Trap."
" That makes sense, and Mom is with them too"
" Robin wants you to stay here Mar"
I was about to cry.
" You know soldiers also cry sometime." Connor told me.
I started crying, really bad, it all flushed down. Connor sat down patiently. He also had tears in his eyes, my crying was so bad.
" I DON'T WANNA CRYYYYYYYYYYYYYY"
" I know. But you gotta"
" I need to come up with a plan."
" Yes, We need to"
" Connor you don't need to."
" I know. But I want to."
" Why are you doing this?"
" Because you inspire me. I need to prove it to myself. I need to help you. It will be the best thing I would have ever done."
" What was it you were about to tell me before I passed out?"
" Uh it was gonna be some lame sarcasm."
" Oh lol, cmon we need to save the world."
