Rebecca nods in agreement. “Yeah.” She sighs. “I’m sure Lennon is okay.”
"I hope so."
Viv is quick on her feet, knuckles white from her tight grip on the scythe which she now keeps by her side at all times. But hellhounds don’t knock. Sitting back on the couch and leaning the weapon gently beside her, she calls out, “It’s open!” and proceeds to watch the door.
Rae doesn’t step too far inside and speaks as she’s opening the door. “You know I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for serious shit.” She pauses, still standing in the doorway. “We need to help Hazel.”
With bitter and begrudging footsteps, Rae makes her way across the grassy area between the cabins. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and that’s exactly what Rae tells herself as she walks up the steps and knocks on the Poseidon cabin’s door.
Rebecca shrugs. “Maybe they had help. Friends?”
She rubs her face. “This is all such a mess.”
She nods. “Maybe we should tell someone.”
"Yeah," She lets out a long sigh and nods, "Lets go talk to Chiron."
Hazel squirmed again, not being able to link the physical contact to her best friend, just wanting to get away. ”No!" Her voice was cracked and weak, reflecting just how much pain and grief she was in, still struggling to get away from Rae’s hug.
Rae jumps and is taken aback. The action is so unlike Hazel and it breaks her heart. Her teeth catch under her bottom lip and she gets up and steps back from the bed. Rae isn’t quite sure what to say, knowing she’ll get no response either way, and she quietly leaves.
Turning her gaze to the ground, Rebecca swallows hard. “Tristan’s gone too.” She looks back up and presses her lips together before speaking. “You don’t suppose they, um…left, do you?”
A long breath releases from her mouth. “Oh gods…I hope not…” She frowns, “How would they even know where to go, though?”
"A-are you sure? Maybe someone forced her to go, or maybe Sebastian went and she followed."
Rae rubs her face and sighs. “Gods, I hope not. No matter what any of the guys over there say, it’s not safe.”
All of her senses were muffled, as if she was being held at the bottom of the lake, but she was able to hear Rae’s question decently enough. She tried to get the words - or word out, but she just couldn’t, she couldn’t get the fact that all she wanted was Sean to come out of her throat and instead only another heartbroken sob came out of her in response.
The sob ripped a hole in Rae’s heart and she couldn’t help herself, she reached down and gave Hazel a hug.
"No, I haven’t." Rebecca’s frown that hadn’t left her face since she heard about Sean deepened. "You can’t find her?"
Rae shakes her head and blinks hard. “I got up this morning and dealt with…everything else, and I came back and noticed all of her stuff was gone.”
