I was walking in the woods, looking for my knife, which I lost. Again. I was also carrying a candle, because even though I can see in the dark, I’m… kind of scared of the dark. No laughing. So anyway, I heard a rustle, and I was super tense, because I was thinking of a harpie eating me or Eliza, or Diana, or another of my friends, so naturally, I reached for my bow and an arrow, and I pointed it. Someone was in the shadows! I quickly came behind the thing, and reached for my knife to scare this thing, or at least show this thing I was armed. But, there was no knife. The thing, however, was also fast and had its sword pointed at my throat. I raised my hands in surrender. however, he didn’t kill me. He asked “Isabelle? Isabelle Amaya?” in a stunned voice. I pointed my flashlight at his face. I knew who he was. I’d met him before. “N… Nico. Nico di Angelo.” I replied. He just stared att me and said “What are you doing here? Oh gods, you wouldn’t happen to be… no. you Hunters wouldn’t know yet…”. I wondered if he was talking mysteriously just to annoy me. I asked him to get to the point. “Well, with Gaea’s giants rising, and stuff, a… few hellhounds may have escaped.” I stared at him. Finally, I asked “A few? How many?” He looked reluctant to answer, but he answered that 250 hellhounds have escaped. I stared, dumbstruck. After about 20 minutes, I told him I had to go. So, we may have a tiny problem.
