When the video was over, Chiron decided to get Annabeth, Grover, Tyson, and even Clarisse to the Big House. \"What's going on? Why are all of us suddenly summoned to the Big House?\" Annabeth curiously said. \"Annabeth, we some devastating news and I don't think any of you will be happy.\" Chiron said. Everyone walked into Dionysus's office and Chiron pulled down the screen and tossed a golden drachma into the screen and it dissolved through. It then showed a list of categories, Chiron picked \"Message Videos\" The most recent one was from Luke Castellan, son of Hermes. Chiron quickly clicked the file name and it appeared a picture of Luke.\"Hello old foes, as you know your friend Percy Jackson has left Camp Half-Blood.\" Luke said suspiciously. \"What's going on? What did he do with Percy?\" Annabeth panicked. \"Percy is doing just fine. If you consider being beaten to pieces fine.\" \"No!\" Annabeth started to cry, \"No.\" Luke stepped aside and then showed Percy being beaten with huge wooden clubs by Luke's men. He was bleeding all over and grunting weakly. Annabeth couldn't look. Tyson started to whimper a little and turned away. But an eager Cyclopes like him, he turned back.\"Usually, he would get one beating per, oh I don't know, week. Since our men are pretty tough.\" Luke said with a smirk, \"So, I'm basically doing a favor for you, giving you time to come to get him but fail, or I could just kill him now. Be happy about that.\" Chiron shut down the system and comforted Annabeth. Grover was looking super worried. Clarisse looked worried too, like she was about to cry, she tried to hide her feelings but she too thought they should do something about it. \"Chiron, we have to save him. We can't let Percy die like that. We have to go get him.\" Annabeth said with tears flowing down her face.\"That's why I summoned you here. All of you, even Clarisse, will go on a quest to save Percy. And if you are going on a quest, you're going to need equipment.\" Chiron quickly. They followed Chiron to a secret room in the Big House and they saw an unlimited supply of Greek Fire, books, weapons, and more. When Chiron reached the books section he pulled out a book of cures and information about Apollo's healing methods. He gave the book to Grover and he examined the cover. \"The Big Book of Healing and Medicine: Apollo's Methods?\" Grover raised an eyebrow. \"This book is utterly necessary for your quest. Percy's in grave danger and you need this book to save him.\" Chiron said. They kept walking and along came the section of The Gods' Gifts. Chiron searched the Hermes section and gave them a yellow duffel bag. \"The duffel bag Hermes gave us, when we were going to the Sea of Monsters.\" Grover said with a memory jog smile. Annabeth managed a smile. They walked to the weapons section and found loads of Greek Fire, one of the most deadliest thing on Earth. Chiron grabbed about 15 to 20 jars. He stuffed them into the duffel bag and moved on.\"We have all the things we need for this quest.\" Chiron surely said. \"Wait, what about Mist? Just in case we run into mortals or something.\" Grover mentioned. \"Doesn't Annabeth have some sprayable Mist?\" Chiron asked. Annabeth reassured, \"Um... I ran out of my Mist. I used it a lot for Tyson and gave him some.\" Everyone looked at Tyson. \" I ran out of Mist too.\" Tyson said as he was prepared for yelling and disciplining. \" That's alright.\" Chiron said putting his hand on his shoulder, \" Now it's time to see the Oracle.\" \" Wait, why would we need to see the Oracle?\" Annabeth questioned. \" Not we, you.\" Chiron pointed at her, \" Since we don't know where Percy is, the Oracle will tell us. Now, I need you to go up in the attic, say what you are seeking and she will speak to you. Alright?\"They walked back into the public area of the Big House and Annabeth headed upstairs. The old stairway creaked and felt like it was about to collapse, but the magical glue held it together for centuries. The first thing you would see is The Spirit of Delphi. As Annabeth moved forward, lights started glistening, fog slowly flowed out of the Oracle's mouth. It asked what was she seeking. Annabeth replied, \"I want to know where Luke has taken Percy.\" \"This comes from a former tale. It has said that it is held underwater, but did you really think that?\" GO WEST IF YOU MUST  BUT TRY AND STAY UNDER THE DUST THE PLACE YOU SEEK, YOU WILL NOT MISS AND BRING HIM BACK WITH TRUE LOVE'S KISS Annabeth went downstairs speechless. Chiron asked what the Oracle said but Annabeth was too shocked to say so. Finally, after a few minutes, she recited what the Spirit of Delphi said.\"What in Hades does \" True love's kiss\" mean?\" Clarisse asked impolitely,\" I mean, who would want to kiss on a quest? And \" To bring him back?\" I'm guessing Percy.\" \" Clarisse!\" Grover whispered while elbowing her shoulder. Chiron stated, \"Alright, now all of you will be going on this quest tomorrow morning. Mr. D and I will be looking for more supplies for you to carry in the bag and be prepared in themorning. After Capture The Flag, you will eat dinner with us and go to bed immediately. You will travel at 6:00 in the morning. It's relevant that you go early.\"
