Chapter 3: Zoey

What happened after the giant blue ball thing exploded- I wouldn't know. All I remember is blacking out. Maybe, if I'm lucky, it was all just some crazy dream. But it was too real. The blackened ground, the strange man- Hades. Hades. HADES. That didn't make sense.

Hades was a greek god. He controlled hell. Didn't kill Hercules or something?

I sat up, groaning loudly. After blinking a few times, my eyes focused on my surroundings. A bed, white and fluffy was under me. Sun streamed in through blinds against one wall. The walls were covered with paintings and swords and armour, everything. I couldn't even begin to notice all of it.

A boy sat in the chair next to me, smiling brightly. It annoyed me for a moment. I mean, my head hurt and the room was spinning so why smile?

"Hi," he handed me some tylenol before sitting back. "I'm Lee."

"Zoey." I smiled back, ignoring the throbbing in my head.

"Hi, I'll go get Demetrius and tell him you're awake." Lee said, and awkward expression on his face.

I actually wanted him to stay, tell me where I was and whether or not people were going to kill me. And what about Kate and that Lina girl? My gaze wandered over to a glass sitting on the bedside table. Without thinking, I grabbed it to take a drink. Within a few seconds, I definitely KNEW this wasn't applejuice.

"Well I think that since...." The talking stopped, probably because of me.

I was coughing wildly, trying to throw up whatever I had swallowed. Kate was staring at me, laughing loudly. A man stood next to her smirking at me as he held a clipboard. I wondered if he was doctor.

"Seems you've managed to swallow a whole glass kitchen grease." He laughed.

"Who puts kitchen grease in a glass?" I demanded, laughing painfully.

"You'd be surprised," Kate said, stifling more laughter. "Lina put it there. Said it would help you," she added.

"You're welcome," Lina's voice rang out from the hallway.

Kate shifted uneasily bevore pulling the door closed behind her, ignoring calls of protest. Her eyes seemed to search my face for a moment, then she sat down on the bed. "Zoey," she started slowly. "I don't like it here. I think we have to leave- now. Everyone is really wierd here. The Lina and I staying in a room, and it looks like a dorm or something. All these kids here, they all are seperated in different grouos. Like, this one group is all pink and bubbly. And another one has metal armour and stuff for clothing. I asked Lina about but all she did was tell me that we were in disneyland."

That was the most I've ever heard her say.

"Kate, I know. I wanna leave too," I said seriously.

She nodded, clasping her hands and sitting back. "I've read about Greek mythology. It's always the good guys who win," she murmured.

I slid off the bed, wincing when contact came to my ankle. I was wondering why I was put in a hospital bed.

I stumbled over to the closet. A short breath was taken in at the sight. This closet was big! It had rows and rows of clothes, all different styles. However, the more I shifted through the rows, the more I began to realize they were uniforms. Each uniform came with a black skirt, for girls, with a different little symbol on the side corner. I started making a list of what the emblem was of: Owl, flames, a boar, trident/water thing, sun, and a bunch of others.

"Uhhh, Kate. Can you come in here for a second." I called out to her, trying to sound calm. My voice broke slightly though.

I showed here the uniforms, shifting slightly while she continued to look at all the symbols. After a few minutes, she turned to me with a puzzled expression. "This is.....weird. This whole place.....It revolves around the greek gods and these signs- they have a greek god symbol."

"How did you come to the conclusion of Greek gods?" I challenged, placing a hand on my hip.

Her eyes narrowed at me. "Everything here is either Aphrodite or Ares! You haven't been out of this stupid room yet because you almost downed, and don't ask me where the water came from. I don't know! But I've been out of this room. I've seen what creeps these people are. I even attended one of the classes. I'm tellin' you- all the would talk about is greek mythology!!"

"What do the symbols mean?" I asked hesitantly.

Kate calmed completely, choosing a shirt with the owl on it. "This is Athena's symbol. And this fire thingy here, this is Hephestas. Oh and the boar is of Ares. I don't really know anything else. They also said something about Apollo, but if I knew his symbol, I'd probably tell you."

"What are you two doing in here?"
