Pertemis: A Wolf’s Tale

Chapter 13 Welcome of The Tale

Percy Point of View

The fact Percy left his mother behind was still wilding him, but right now it was replaced by the new world surrounded him.

They walked in a forest, the trees were so strange and the flowers, the sky was so blue and clearly that he nearly forgot the danger he was in. He thought of the world outside the island would be different, but it seemed just the same. So far, he hadn't seen any person walk passed them. Only Percy and Artemis walking under the afternoon sun. However, there was a change that this place was hotter than his island home.

As he was paying too much attention to the surrounding, Artemis suddenly came to a halt and he nearly bumped onto her.

"Uh why are we stopping?" he raised a question.

"It's because we are at the perimeter to my hunt Perseus" she told him. "One more step and they would detect you."

"They wouldn't attack you right?" He said. "I mean they must know that I'm an acquaintance to you"

"Yeh I know but I must make it clear to them first" she sighed in annoy. "After all I'm bringing a male into our home, which has broken our rules. I must confirm them before taking you there."

"But what if they don't accept me?" He said. "What if they-"

"Oh for Leto's sake can you just stop asking!?" Artemis bellowed. "I've promise to mother that I'll take care of you and I'm doing it now. Listen to me and stay here, and do not wander anywhere."

With that, she left him and walked into the hunters' area. Percy scoffed and leaned his back on the tree. Now he was wishing to go back home, where his mum would be making lunch and him looking at her at the kitchen's doorframe. The thought made his heart ached for home. The concern about his mother's safety rushed back into him again. He swept the thought aside and looked around for Artemis.

He had come to like her. It wasn't that like-like of a sister. He never yearned to have Artemis as a sister. He always looked at her as a friend, and right now it was advancing into something more than that. He knew it was wrong to have those feeling for her, that was a taboo for both him and Artemis. Because he had never seen any other female in his life except Leto and Artemis. Of course when she appeared, a strong sensation made his heart vibrated rapidly. So far, Artemis was the most beautiful person beside his mother he had ever seen. Her auburn hair always curious him that he had a thought of touching them, her pale skin and flawless of a rare quality and that beautiful features of hers. Her eyes were the most fascinating to him, like those ambers rare rock that glitters on the island. Every time he stated straight at her, the two full moons just showed from that window of her soul. He never got able to control when he looked at Artemis, the fact being near her got his legs trembled. Despite the fact she hated him, he was still glad that she didn't treat him as bad as the other males.

A moment later, Artemis returned with a half pleased and half not face. That got him worried.

"So how was the negotiation?" he asked, clapping his palms together and grinned.

"They have accepted you to live there" she informed him, which made his shoulders to drop "however don't parade it soon because it's not gonna be easy afterwards."
