“Be careful of love. It’ll twist your brain around and leave you thinking up is down and right is wrong.”

“The sea does not like to be restrained.”

“They sent forth men to battle, but no such men return; and home, to claim their welcome, come ashes in an urn.”
- Aeschylus, Agamemnon.

Luke delays resurfacing for as long as he can, until his head starts spinning and his lungs feel like they’re going to burst out of his trunk. Kicking his feet against the tiles for a boost, he swims back to the surface, gasping for air as soon as his head breaks out of the water. He hears Louis’ phone beep when he stops the timer.

“How long was that?” Luke asks when he’s caught his breath. All Louis seems to be able to do is stare at the numbers displayed on the screen of his phone, then gaze at Luke for a while before looking back at his phone, only to repeat it all over again.

“What the fuck,” Louis blurts out eventually, eyes still trained on his phone. The light it emits reflects in his eyes. Luke can almost read the numbers it displays in his irises. “What the fuck.”

Or Luke has to flee to Camp Half-Blood with his (apparently demigod) best friend Louis, but what they’re running from turns out to be bigger and closer than they ever imagined. And the gorgeous boy named Michael with the cocky smile and the pretty eyes that everyone warns him about isn’t of any help at all.
