I have no idea what to say right now so…


"Kill? That doesn't sound very nice." said Grover shaking uncontrollably.

"No my tiny little satyr it is not very nice." Loki said smirking.

"Why did you possess Percy?" Annabeth said when she jumped out of the van.

"Because he could have gotten me my prize. Hand over the tooth Rowan."

"No." she said defiantly. "I have a better idea. Ailsa beina!" Rowan yelled tearing the tooth from her throat "Varou!"

Percy heard a load growl and instinctively reached for Anklusmos. Before he could even reach his pocket a large, pure black wolf came out of nowhere and leaped onto Loki. He looked around wildly for Rowan but she had disappeared. In her place was a large, rust red, blue eyed wolf. Rowan charged Loki sending him sprawling. Both wolves jumped away and attacked again and again forcing Loki back.

"Whoa, calm down nice puppies." Loki said. "I'll just be going." A large pop was heard and Loki was gone. Percy walked closer to the red wolf.

"Rowan?" he said timidly. The wolf smiled showing her canine teeth, one of which had a chain running through it. "That wasn't a wolf tooth, that your tooth!"

"Took you long enough." Rowan replied, reverted back to human form and putting the necklace back on.

"You- did he- what?" stuttered Grover.

"Seems that I am protecting you now Grover."

Grover mumbled a bit more and went off to skulk. Slowly, the black wolf crept toward the group and started growling.

"Ailsa, quiet, these are friends."

"It has a name?" Percy said surprised.

"She is not an 'it', her name is Ailsa. Now, we must not tarry any more. We will miss our ride." the Norse demigod replied.

"How much longer do we have to drive?" Grover asked as he came back to the group.

"None, we're already here."

Rowan gestured toward a dense thicket of trees. Annabeth, Percy, and Grover looked confused until she walked over, whispered something, and the trees parted. Behind the trees was a dock with a gleaming Viking ship floating on the crystal clear water. Percy started to look kind of excited. Water was his element, that's where he had power. He started to head towards the boat, but Rowan grabbed him by the back of the shirt and hauled him back holding him up a foot from the ground.

"Don't even think about it. I told you that you will get eaten alive if you show you're powers in this way." She growled angrily.

"I'm sorry, can you put me down? I think I'm starting to lose the circulation in my feet." he said quickly. Rowan dropped him on the ground and headed for the boat.

"Excuse me? Rowan?" Annabeth said kind of timidly. "What do you mean by 'eaten alive'?"

"We cannot anger Njord."

"Isn't that a car company?" Grover asked.

Rowan slapped a hand across his mouth and peered around anxiously. "Watch what you say, or I'll pull your tongue out."

"Hey… You can't do that!" Percy protested.

"Yes… In fact, I can, because without me, you'd all be torn to pieces. Or, will be."

Percy glared at her with open malice. That's it. He thought. A familiar tug in his gut followed as he tried to summon the water to his aid. He closed his eyes for harder concentration, but the water just didn't come. The Norse girl took at look at Percy and knew what was going on.

"Ovitr armr neffolr kyr!" she screamed. "Get on the boat!"

All ran full speed except for Percy who had no idea what just happened. Rowan threw him over her shoulder and carried him into the boat. Flinging him to the ground she leaped to the tiller. The boat was off. "Typical Son of Poseidon, I tell him not to do something, and he does it."

"How was I supposed to know this would happen?" Percy retaliated, standing up.

"I told you not to. Here's the thing. You're in Norse territory. If you want to live, listen to me. If you want to go home, go now, before we get too far."

Percy crossed his arms over his chest, but he didn't move.

"Good. Now, before we get to Asgard, we'll have to take a quick detour."

"Where do we need to go?" Annabeth asked.



Ailsa beina- Ailsa (name of wolf) come!

Varou- Transform

Ovitr armr neffolr kyr!- Ignorant wretched yellow-beaked cow!

I apologize for having this chapter in my folder for about two months and not bothering to finish it. My bad!
