As I walk through the valley where Apollo’s being healed, I take a look at my hands and realize their shaking. I walked over to Zeus and realized he was sweating.
“Zeus are 你 okay?” I asked with concern
“I can only temporarily bring back his immortality. He has five days before he starts ageing again.” Zeus confirmed
“Why? Can’t 你 fix it permanently?” I wondered
“Not without two things: a rare golden jasmine, only found in the Underworld. I also need an equally rare golden Rafflesia arnoldii, only found on Themyscira. Finally, I need a Golden 苹果 from the garden of the Hesperides” He pointed out
“Then I’ll get them. I find some help and get all the 花 and fruits and be back here in five days” I 说 confidently
“What about the person who did this? Who will track them down?” Zeus contradicted
“The team will. I was going to get them to do that anyways” I said
“You will need help. If 你 wish, I can grant powers to one of your teammates who I find worthy” Zeus warned
“No need. My help will come when I find the person in this riddle” I disagreed “ I must find the one who can run but never walks, has a mouth but never talks, has a head but never weeps, has a 床, 床上 but never sleeps.”
“So 你 must look for a river spirit” Zeus said
“How did 你 know?” I demanded
“I made that riddle” Zeus replied simply
“Oh. Okay. Do 你 know which river spirit I need? I mean there must be over 100,000 rivers in this continent alone!” I pointed out
“You must find the spirit of the Spercheios river, in Greece.” Zeus told me
“Thank 你 Lord Zeus” I thanked. I jumped on Astéri and flew down to the street. I looked over and realized that the morning sky didn’t look so beautiful anymore. Just yesterday I had told Robin my 最喜爱的 time of 日 was dawn, when the sun rose because the sun was so beautiful in the morning. Now that was different because Apollo was not there to make it beautiful. I opened a shadow tunnel above me and took two steps back. The team suddenly fell into the 街, 街道 in front of me.
“Next time can 你 make it a walk through tunnel 或者 a jump-into tunnel so we don’t fall so hard?” KF complained
“Maybe 你 should’ve grabbed a 枕头 to land on then!” I snapped
“Woah, someone’s cranky” KF muttered
“Wally!” Artemis exclaimed “Stop complaining! I can tell she’s been through a lot tonight.”
I walked away from the group to a fountain. When I looked into the water I saw a tired, dirty, sad girl staring back. A tear fell from my eye when I thought about Apollo who would die if I didn’t finish my job in five days. I heard them starting to argue behind me. Then it all went silent. I turned around to see why. A huge beast of a dog with glowing red eye’s appeared in front of them, growling.
“Hellhound” I spoke just loud enough for the team to hear me
