Strong Enough- 9&bull;|<p>I soon fell into a troubled but dreamless sleep. I woke to the sound of the bakers voice.<br>"Its far to much of a risk." An unfamilliar voice responded, assuring him of the oppisite. Then Jades small voice took a turn. "We wont be here much longer." The baker grumbled something and the other voice said something about triple payment. This seemed to close the deal and the door to the labrynth closed again.<br>Curiosity getting the best of me I pretended to wake up. And when I 'woke up' I found that Jade and I were no longer alone.<br>A handsom boy of about 16 was at the sink washing blood from a shirt. Curiosity had ahold of my voice and it rudely spoke out. "Who are you?" The shirtless boy turned towards me, studying me as I was him. Across his abdomen was a line of scars, sort of like Wolverine, and a fresh bleeding bandage tied around his shoulder.<br>"Im Zeke, and you are?"<br>"Eliza." I say going for my normal name. He flashes me a smile and truns back to his job. Jade sets my bag down on the foor next to me.<br>"Were going soon." She says in her plesant yet quite voice. I nod and stand up. I stretch and Zeke, still at the counter, truns around running a hand through his black hair.<br>"Where are you girls going." I leave the question for Jade to answer because I dont know. I was going to head down to Florida but that plans cancelled now since my parent wants me to stay with Jade.<br>"Camp Half-Blood." She says pulling her own bag on. I bend down to adjust my weapon in my boot as he replies.<br>"Ah, I was just there. On my way back to Jupiter but I should get my shoulder looked at by a medic. Care if I join you?" I stand back up in time to see Jade shrug. With her unhelpfull answer he looks at me.<br>"Sure." I say and he nods.<br>"Alright just give me a second." He says and wraps his formally bloody shrit around his wrist. He grabs a clean pruple shirt off a pile and pulls it on. With a few more preparations hes ready and we leave. As we walk out of the still unbusy Subway Zeke gives the baker a few golden coins which I guess is his extra payment. Standing on the corner of a intersection another curiosity question forces its self out into the open.<br>"How do we get to this camp?"<br>Jade gives me a green eyed smile. "By bus of course."<p>|&bull;Next part next res! I promise it will be soon&bull;|<p>&bull;&bull;Ana
