Percy sat silently in front of the shrine that stood in the center of Celestic Town as he waited for Annabeth to return from whatever it was she said she needed to do. He let out a sigh. He should be out there looking for Grover, not sitting here doing nothing, well he didn't really need to be doing nothing.
He stood up from sitting down and grabbed both his Scalchops. He then started to use his Razor Shell, trying to perfect his usage of them. It wasn't just enough to take on the infected with them, he need to keep practicing so he didn't get rusty with them.
Being out in the open wasn't such a great idea, but he needed open space so he didn't hit anything that he didn't need to, but he wouldn't mind a practice dummy. Normally Annabeth would practice with him, but she wasn't here at the moment so it was just him. He could here some rustling to the right of him and spun around in time to see an infected Glameow pounced at him, he instantly used his Protect, the Glameow let out a screech as it bounced off, and he instinctively used his Razor Shell to finish it off.
He put his Scalchops back to his sides and let out another sigh before going back to the shrine and leaning on it. He started to hope nothing bad had happened to Annabeth. Losing Grover was bad enough, he didn't know what he would do if he lost her as well.
