I woke up to find Eudorus now by my side. "You're awake."

"How long have I been asleep?"

"All night and most the morning. Are you hungry?" he asked, full of concern. "A little." I admitted. He handed me a bowl full of grapes and as I ate, sat there with eyes full of question. "Please, Eudorus. Ask what's on your mind." "Are you a nymph?"

"No. Why would you ask that?"

"You came out of the sea and know our names."

"I just came from a different situation than you."

Before he could respond, a shout of "Troy!" reached our ears, causing us to run up top. Barely on the horizon, we could see the beaches of Troy. The men then started moving all over, gathering their shields and weapons while we continued to race ahead of the Greek army. Eudorus also noticed this. "My lord. Should we wait for the others?"

"They brought us here for war."

"Yes, but Agamemnon's orders..."

"You fight for me, Eudorus, or Agamemnon?"

"For you, my lord."

"Then fight for me, and let the servants of Agamemnon fight for him."

Eudorus and I exchanged looks as Achilles turned away. "Him and his pride."

"He may be overly proud, Eudorus, but on this I would have to agree with him. I would never fight for a king like Agamemnon."

He said nothing. Just then Achilles called to me. "So, little water nymph, Patroclus told me about you and your knowledge of us."

"It is true that I know much of what is to come in this war but I am no nymph of any sort."

"I know this but the men had made this rumor as their explanation of how you came to us in the water."

"Is this a good or bad thing?"

"Patroclus explained that you came from another land to them so they just figure shipwreck. Probably nothing will come out of this situation but I still promise to protect you. I feel responsible for you like I did when my aunt and uncle died and I took in Patroclus."

"I feel honored."

"Stay on the ship until I say its safe."

He smiled at me and then his eyes shifted elsewhere. "Patroclus! Put down your spear."

"I'm fighting the Trojans."

"Not today."

"I'm ready. You taught me how to fight!"

"I'm ready. You taught me how to fight!"

"You are a good student. But you're not a Myrmidon yet. Look at these men." he said, calmly indicated to the warriors preparing for battle, "They are the fiercest soldiers in all of Greece. Each of them has bled for me. You guard the ship."

"But this is a war." Patroclus continued, pleading.

"Cousin. I can't fight the Trojans if I'm concerned for you. Guard the ship."

They turned away from each other, with Patroclus throwing down both the shield and sword in anger. I followed him, hoping to calm him.
