The Lost Lover
Epilog: The One Where the Kidnapper is Being Punished
Poseidon had his fingers clawed into his throne. His ex-wife Amphitrite sat on his left, Triton on his right. Next to their thrones was Zeus, in the mightiest throne of them all, with his two older sisters Hestia and Demeter sitting left and right to him, Jason Grace sitting with a frown on his face in front of the throne. On Zeus' other side were Hades, Persephone and Nico di Angelo.
In front of the Big Three stood the smaller thrones of the others. On the farthest right was Hermes, with Iris and Travis on either side of him. Next to them was Hephaestus, having Hecate and a very excited Leo Valdez alongside of him. In the middle were Dionysus and Athena, Annabeth Chase standing between them with an unsure expression on her face. On the Wisdom Goddess' side were Ares and Aphrodite, a very confused Piper McLean standing between her mother and her mother's lover. The last ones were Apollo, Artemis and Nemesis.
"What... What exactly is going on here?", whispered Piper, walking to stand closer to Annabeth.
"I'm not entirely sure myself", replied the daughter of Athena.
"You're here because you are special", replied Hestia softly. "The saviors of Hera, the lovers of Percy and you, Annabeth Chase, his best friend. You're here for the judgment."
"Judgment? What kind of judgment?", asked Piper, scooting a little closer to Annabeth.
Travis hit Leo upside the head as the fire-bender jumped around a little too eager. He understood this, the first time he had been on Olympus it had been exciting for him too. But now seemed not to be the right time for excitement. His mischievous blue eyes scanned the room, taking all the gods and goddesses in, as well as the demi-gods. He settled for the Ghost Prince, standing confidently behind Hades. He was probably the only not immortal who didn't look out of place. Leo was giddy to investigate Olympus, Jason was slowly calculating what was happening here, Piper was looking nervous about being there and Annabeth was too distracted by Piper's proximity to think.
"You rescued our sister, young heroes", continued Demeter, looking from Leo to Piper and settling for the son of Jupiter. "Even though one of you does not belong here."
"We know he's Roman, but that's not a problem, right?", interrupted the daughter of Aphrodite.
"Oh my dear", smiled her mother amused. "That's not quite what she's talking about."
"Then... what do you mean?", asked Leo cautiously, suddenly not so giddy anymore.
He took a step up, to stand closer to Jason, not feeling comfortable with the way everyone was looking at his not-quite-boyfriend (was there a proper term for 'we just met three days ago, but got fake memories about being a couple'?). The blonde though was still frowning. Travis observed how Nico seemed to hide more within the shadows, making him frown himself.
"What's going on here, dad?", asked Travis, turning to Hermes. "I mean, seriously."
"Mother does not like father's children", chuckled Hephaestus darkly.
"Especially not the demi-god kind", snorted Ares. "So why is he still alive?"
"Why going through the trouble of protecting him?", added Apollo with a frown.
"The most important question however", grunted Dionysus. "Why sending him to camp?"
"Why mixing Romans and Greeks now?", growled Artemis, tapping her fingers against her throne.
"I... Don't know...", muttered Jason unsure feeling as if they were talking to him.
"Oh, no one is talking to you, sweetie", snickered Hecate amused. "We're talking to her."
The demi-gods, by now standing between the two rows of thrones with Leo and Jason standing kind of awkwardly next to each other and Piper and Annabeth holding hands in support, started at the gods in confusion. That's when a shining light illuminated the place in front of the thrones. The teenagers turned around again to face the front. Just to find Hera laying on the floor.
"Seriously, what is going on here?!", demanded Annabeth to know. "Mother! Anyone!"
"We're here to be judges", replied Nico softly. "Or do you think the gods, of all creatures of the planet, would show mercy towards the one who ripped away the one being they love most?"
"You mean we're here to judge a god? The queen of gods?", grunted Leo dumbfounded.
"No, Leo Valdez", chuckled Nemesis amused, eying him curiously. "You three are here as witnesses. You rescued her. We want information from you. The others are here as judges."
"What are you going to do?", growled Hera, lifting her head.
Her eyes shone with anger, nearly madness even. Leo shuddered and backed off some, just to bump into the very well-defined chest of his nearly-boyfriend. A slight blush graced his cheeks and he threw a curious glance over his shoulder at the Roman. No blush. Well, not that it surprised the Latino. Jason was too well-educated and too well-trained to show such emotions...
"Push her into the deepest pit of Tartarus and close it", growled Nico indifferently.
Travis blinked surprised and locked eyes with Annabeth concerned. The rage and fury of the one whose fatal flaw were grudges was... concerning. The look in those storm-gray eyes told the trickster that she was having similar thoughts.
"We've had that suggestion already", noted Iris, looking the Ghost Prince curiously up and down. "Amusingly enough it also came from a member of your family."
"Well, father and I often agree when it comes to things concerning Percy", grunted Nico.
"It was not your father suggesting that", snickered Dionysus amused.
"What? Don't give me those looks", huffed Persephone and crossed her arms in front of her chest. "I've been the illegitimate stepdaughter for so long now, I know her true colors."
"But still", interrupted her mother, coughing slightly. "She is our sister and she was our queen for long enough. Tartarus is... too harsh a punishment for my baby-sister."
"Was?", repeated Hera ridiculed. "I am your queen!"
"Banishment", whispered Annabeth, her head lowered.
"What was that, girl?", asked Zeus attentive.
"I said banishment", repeated the daughter of Athena and took one step forward. "Away from Olympus, away from the place where she can manipulate us all."
"That's all nice, but where to?", asked Hades with a dark frown.
"I think I have a simple answer for that", smirked Travis.
Attention shifted again to focus on the demi-god trickster. The son of Hermes shifted a bit.
"Well, spill it, boy", growled Poseidon slightly annoyed.
"There is that friend Percy mentioned once or twice", started the thief to explain. "He said she had been banished by you gods after the first Titan War. Do him a favor, free her. And while you're at it, let someone else take care of this island."
"Ogygia", muttered Amphitrite in realization.
"Calypso", nodded Annabeth. "He had been talking about her often these days, ever since the war is over. I think he wanted to talk to you about freeing her anyway..."
"And we can't have Ogygia staying empty", murmured Triton thoughtful. "It's a good place to keep her. Forever isolated, but not lost to Tartarus."
"Who agrees may lift their hand now", announced Zeus.
Everyone present lifted their hands. Some lifted both their hands. Hera stared at them wide-eyed and in disbelief. How could they do this to her?! She was their queen!
"It's decided", growled Zeus and stood. "For screwing with the rules of Olympus, the holy rules to keep Romans and Greeks separated, and for manipulating us, you are sentenced to spend eternity on Ogygia, tending to the stranded but never setting foot on our lands again."
"But not before you tell us where Percy is", added Poseidon, his sea-green eyes full of rage.
"Why should I?", hissed his sister back. "You're going to banish me anyway. Why should I tell you? He's put away, he will sleep. Sleep until he is needed. I'm not giving you the satisfaction of having your little plaything back to jump from bed to bed!"
"He is needed!", growled Nico angered, the shadows closing in on Hera. "Return him!"
"Don't talk to me like that, brat! I'm still a goddess!"
"Not for long though", drawled Hades. "We will strip you off your powers. Now talk."
"Wait", interrupted Annabeth confused. "Isn't Percy at Jason's camp? With the Romans?"
"Oh no, no he isn't", snickered Hera. "And he won't be. Not for a long time."
"Enough!", exclaimed Zeus enraged. "You will never return to Olympus and you will never be one of us again. If you're not willing to tell us where Percy is, then we will find him on our own."
With that said, a bright light engulfed Hera, forcing the demi-gods to avert their eyes. She vanished with a screech, leaving nothing but a faint, purple mist.
"What... What did she mean...?", whispered Annabeth, her hand over her heart.
"I have no idea, Annie", muttered Nico, walking up behind her, resting one hand on her shoulder. "But it means we are facing a rough task. We'll have to find Percy on our own."
"Don't pull a Dark Knight stunt, Ghost Prince", warned Travis, coming to stand next to the son of Hades. "We're in on this together. Mission: Rescue Percy starts now."
"You... know we'll help, right?", smiled Piper, nudging the blonde encouragingly.
"Yeah", nodded Leo with a broad smile. "We'll built the Argo II and then we'll go over there to the Romans and we will find your lost boy. She just said that to screw with you, I'm sure."
"I'm not so sure about anything with her", murmured Jason with a calculating frown. "But this Percy Jackson will be safe with Reyna. I know that."
Pain passed through Leo's eyes. He didn't like it when the blonde mentioned Reyna. There was such a softness in his eyes, a softness that somehow frightened the son of Hephaestus, because it was unusual for Jason and it made Leo fear that he had someone to return to. Someone special.
"It's good that you agree on this", said Zeus as the gods stood to circle the half-bloods. "Because you will be in charge for finding Perseus and returning him to us. You're our chosen children. We can't interfere in such matters ourselves, as you know. We send heroes."
"And we want you for this job", ended Poseidon. "My son is missing and I want him back. And there is no one I would trust with this more than you, Annabeth."
"You're the strongest lad I've sired in a while. If anyone can build the Argo II and find Perseus, it's you, Leo. I want you to give your best", grunted Hephaestus grumpily.
"Love, love is such a delicate matter", smiled Aphrodite mischievously. "Percy's love-life has long since become more than just entertainment for me. I want my friend returned to me. I know this is going to be a though journey for you, Piper. But I know you can do it."
"Your brother will return from his quest and then you two will behave your best and help", said Hermes, throwing a warning glare at Travis. "A sleigh of hands or two will be helpful for them."
"Your time with the Greeks will not be a simple one, but it will be worth it, I promise. As long as you do everything in your power to help pushing this quest forward."
While every demi-god was being addressed by a god and explicitly invited onto this quest, the silence between Hades and Nico spoke books. The Ghost Prince did not need to be told what he had to do. He had to keep in touch with the Romans without the Greeks knowing. He had to make them believe that what Hera said had only been said to mess with them. He had to keep their hope up and keep them out of trouble. Aside from that, he also had to figure out what was going on between the two idiotic tricksters and himself. Oh, and while he was at it, he also had to help his best friend, also known as the wise girl dense to feelings, figuring her own feelings out too.
Piece of cake, he'd say.
Laying one arm around Annabeth, with Travis' arm around his own shoulders, he steered their group out of the throne room. The daughter of Athena had her fingers linked with Piper, who was talking animatedly with Leo and Jason next to her. This was only the tip of the iceberg.
~*~ The End ~*~
Author's note: The end of The Lover of Olympus 2! I'm glad I really managed to close it within the year. The next one, the oneshot collection, will be started as soon as I find the time for it, but since it will be a collection of oneshots I won't handle it the way I handle my multiple chapter stories with the schedule and all. Because they will most likely be longer and take more time off, so I'm going to write them parallel to the chapters of my longer stories.
Next, with me having closed/closing/soon closing four of my multiple chapter stories, I've been thinking of starting a new one. Since I'm having soo many ideas in my head, I started a poll to see which of the ideas are most liked by my readers. It won't be started before Christmas, that much is for sure since I'm having enough stress and delays in my updates as it is at the moment. But if you'd check it out, you would be of great help to me, thanks.
