Wolf! Chapter 24
Evan was blown backwards and landed with a dull thud. We all raced over to him. His arm was bent backwards and I wasn't sure if his leg was supposed to face in that direction. There was blood around his mouth and nose and that was the part that scared me more than anything else because it was horribly close to the state that I found Charlie in.
It was then that I noticed the small fragments of glass on the ground and the small puddle of blood that was soaking through his jeans.
Evans hand came down and pulled what was left of a glass vial out of his pocket. There was a tiny amount of black liquid left.
"What is that?" I asked warily.
"I'm sorry Percy it's what I used to poison Charlie as soon as the poison goes in the blood stream you're a goner" he said weakly.
I gasped. "So you're the one that killed him" I said angrily.
"Percy I'm so sorry I wish I could take everything back but I can't so listen I don't have much time left." It had just occurred to me that Evan was dying and despite all that we went through to get here the idea made me sad.
"Fenrir sent me to kill Charlie and I succeeded so when he sent me to kill you. Since it worked the first time he sent me with the poison because he thought I couldn't take you on in a head to head battle. I forgot that the poison was in my pocket but it's too late now, it's smashed and now it's in my blood stream which means I could only have seconds left so you need to listen to me."
"Okay I'm listening" I said.
"Fenrir knows that he can't be killed if the alpha of the pack doesn't deliver the final blow and he knows that you're stronger than the rest of the pack so he will do everything in his power to kill you before you get your powers under control so you need to have your eyes and ears open at all times because an attack can happen at any point. You may be the only hope left for this world" he managed to say although I knew he was struggling.
The thought that once again I was to play a huge part in the coming battle was scary to me and I knew that I was way out of my comfort zone. The last time in the fight against Kronos I at the very least had years to prepare but this time here wasn't much time and the fight would be so much different.
He let out a shuddery breath and sighed. "I wish I wasn't such an idiot and I could have been there to help."
We needed his help if we were to get through this. We needed all the help we could get and he knew the opposing side he could have been so useful.
"Evan please we need you, there has to be a way to fix this" I said desperately. I was scared of leading the team to failure. I was scared that I wouldn't be good enough. People were counting on me and there was so much pressure. If I didn't do well enough then people were going to die and it would be my fault because I wasn't good enough to stop Fenrir.
"I'm sorry Percy but you need to lead this team on your own. I'm sure that you will stop Fenrir but you have to stay strong. Don't worry your team will help you" Evan said and I could tell that he could barely breath now.
When it happened it was very sudden. His chest wasn't moving and I could hear no air getting drawn into his lungs. I knew he was gone.
I walked over to the wreckage of the monster which was dissolving into the grass. I picked up the amulet that has cost Evan his life, knowing that it could do me no harm. It was warm and fit into the palm of my hand. I took a closer look at it.
It had four images engraved into the golden metal. A sword, a shield, a dagger and a wolf head. I didn't know what it meant now but I would figure out how to use it. I knew that it belonged to me and I felt guilty for not stopping the events that took place but like Evan said I can't take it back. In the end he was a true hero, I just hoped he knew that.
You can't stop the future.
You can't rewind the past.
The only thing I could do was keep going.
I slipped the shiny gold amulet around my neck and turned to face the others. "Guys it's getting late I think we should start looking for a place to camp for the night."
Sorry it took so long to upload and it's so short but I think I'll put this story on hold for a little while. Don't worry I will come back to it and I will write it in any spare time I have.
