Chapter Three : How...and why?
That awkward moment when you realise you don't know what you're fighting for.
"So...remind me, Laura, what are we doing here?" Lucas asked tenatively, as they strode through the forest, his brave smile faltering.
All three, Jason, Jaylyn and Laura, gasped in shock at this question; he wondered if they were doing this purely out of spite, or whether they were genuinely surprised. Of course, it turned out to be the latter, as it generally was.
"You don't know." Laura looked on the verge of laughing. "Olivia lost her sight."
"Olivia? The Apollo kid?" Lucas chuckled. "What if she likes being blind?"
"She doesn't!" snapped the usually timid Jason- although Lucas didn't know, he really loved Olivia, the shining light of camp as everyone who was anyone called her.
"Fine,fine. So what are we doing?"
"You're the leader- but we're finding the tears of Fortuna." Jaylyn explained shortly, shaking her head exasperatedly, waiting for the raucous reaction that was sure to come.
"WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!" exclaimed Lucas loudly, so loudly in fact he could have disturbed the whole forest and alerted everything of their presence. Luckily, he didn't, and they carried on with their voyage.
Jason stopped suddenly- they all did when he noticed his uneasy look.
"What?" asked everyone but Jason simultaneously.
"Where are we going?"
All heads turned to look at Lucas, who shifted uncomfortably under the gaze.
"I don't know. I'm not a leader... I'm not... I can't lead you! Everything I boasted about, they are lies, lies... I just wanted you to like me better...I was jealous of Olivia."
"You can." said Laura.
"You can." announced Jaylynn.
Jason grinned. "You can."
