Buffy blinked. A demigod? For serious? She'd run across powerful beings that called themselves "gods" before, but never any modest enough to claim only half that title.

Regardless. A god, even only half one, wanting to make off with her baby sister? Yeah right. Good thing Dawn had called her. Where did this boy get off? Just because some huge, horned monster had attacked the college they both attended, and Dawn did better with ancient languages than English, that didn't have to mean Dawn was some mythic Half Blood, too.

She saw what Dawn saw in him-- pretty eyes, dark hair, just the right combination of awkward and aware to feel familiar. But contrariwise? Their Mom would never have....

The thought trailed off as Buffy remembered that technically, she was Dawn's mother, not Joyce. Technically. And they never had discovered where the rest of Dawn's DNA came from. They should've known that would come back to haunt them. And it would help explain Dawn's terrible luck with Tuesdays. Stupid Powers.

"Okay. But I'm coming, too."

Percy winced apologetically. "Normal humans can't cross the threshold of the camp, I'm sorry."

She smiled thinly. "Oh, I don't think that'll be a problem."
