I yelled a battle cry and drew my sword. I charged the beast, but before I could even lung lay, swing my sword, the Nereid caught my hand and made me drop my sword.
“Please, I do not wish to fight you. I am the River spirit bạn sought out. I can provide bạn with a thêm efficient form of flight then pegasi as long as bạn don’t mind riding a drakon” the spirit offered
“Why did bạn send a drakon to attack my friends?” I demanded, remembering my tour with Musica
“What are bạn talking about? I would never do that!” The Drakon protested “I only control the drakons in Greece” he added
“Well bạn could’ve started with that!” I exclaimed “A couple weeks ago, me and my Những người bạn got attacked bởi a green water drakon!”
“I am sorry to hear that one of my kin was so irresponsible” He apologized
“One?! ALMOST EVERY DRAKON IN NORTH AMERICA WANTS TO KILL US ALL!” I yelled
“Please lower your voice. I have much too great hearing and this cave echo’s tremendously. bởi the way, your Những người bạn are coming” he notified
“Sorry, and thank you” I apologized
“No worries. Here, bạn look tired. Sit down. I know it may be awkward sitting on a drakon, but it is surprisingly comfortable” he offered
“Okay. I guess it couldn’t hurt to sit for a while” I said
Then Percy, Nico and Annabeth burst in, swords in their hands, battle cries going.
“Guys wait! This is the river spirit we’re looking for. He just so happens to be master of the drakons in Greece too” I explained
“Then why was he curling around you?” Percy asked
“He was being courteous and giving me a seat!” I exclaimed
“I am Serpios, master of this river and the drakons of Greece” he introduced “I take it bạn are the group looking for the person who lấy trộm, đánh cắp Apollo’s immortality”
“No, we are the group gathering the ingredients for an immortality potion” I corrected
“Well, I am only supposed to help the group who is tracking the thief” he said
“Oh. Woops. I guess I’ll shadow portal them here” I đã đưa ý kiến as I opened a shadow portal and Robin, Kalder, Wally, super Boy, and Artemis fell onto the drakon. Megan just sort of floated down.
“Again with the falling shadow tunnel?! Really?!” KF exclaimed
“Woly shiz! Isn’t that the thing that attacked us at the bờ biển, bãi biển when bạn fainted?” Robin exclaimed
“In my defense, I did not faint. All my power just left my body and I was exhausted. And no, this is Serpios, master of this river and of the drakons in Greece. He is to help bạn guy’s track the thief” I corrected
“And that I will. I will get my fastest tracker drakon to give bạn guy’s a lift” Serpios added, using his tail to beckon to the Nereid.
“Find Pipsqueak and inform her that she will be flying six mortals around to find a thief” he told her
