She only felt some uneven breaths mixing with gasps from Perseus. His wound didn't heal, the yellow liquid kept leaking out from the deep cut that sodded her jacket, yellowed the ground.

Perhaps it was her fault that he was caught up in this, or she'd broken her promise from protecting him from harms. But she knew it was more than that, his agony sent her to that world of pain. She could feel, could hear, could see what he had to endure. Maybe that they had
