Just the Guy with the Tool Belt - The Lost HeroIt had been a little over an hour since the three's departure from Camp Half-Blood. Festus glided beautifully through the clouds, running like clockwork (although not without the few shakes and oil leaks, he had to admit). They had settled into a gentle rhythm as the dragon occasionally flapped his lengthy metal wings to keep them aloft, their bodies softly swaying, synchronized with the movements of the metal beast.

breathes a new glow over snuffed candles.
I feel the weight in these empty rows,
how a breath couldn't cease to be breath
in the midst of prayer.
