Chapter 68

[Third Person's PoV]

Lucian reinforced the mist surrounding them so they could hear their conversations, while Thalia, Luke, and Annabeth looked like they were losing their minds at the revelation.

"How is that possible!?" Annabeth almost screamed. "How could it be possible that your mother is Medea!? Wasn't she from ancient times, like millennia ago? How could it be possible for her to be your mother!?"

Thalia looked surprised. "Could you possibly be from the past!? Like you were born during those times and your mother found a way to freeze you or something, and only recently you were thawed out? Or did she cast a powerful spell that accidentally opened a portal to the space-time continuum and you ended up here in our time?"

Lucian slowly turned and stared at her and gave her a 'Are you crazy' look. Both Luke and Annabeth looked at him with expectation in their eyes, as if they believed Thalia's theories and wanted him to confirm them.

Before he had a chance to deny or confirm the statements, both Luke and Annabeth started sharing their theories.

"Did you die really young and because you're the son of the God of the Underworld, they made an exception for you and let you leave a few years ago?"

"Did your mother create a Spell that made her practically immortal?"

"No and No," Lucian said with a plain voice.

"Then what? You're either lying or…" Thalia said, moving her hand as if she was a scale.

Lucian then sighed before reaching for his neck, "It had something to do with the three fates, they didn't allow her to die until recently"

Lucian looks at them and smiles, which sent a shiver down their spines,

"Wanna know something funny?" He said, still smiling.

They tilted their heads in confusion as Lucian continues, he turns away from them and looks ahead still smiling.

"My mother died exactly on my birthday, it was the exact moment the clock struck twelve. The fates are such a bitch that for my birthday present they took away from mother"

Elsewhere:

The three sisters didn't utter a word as they did their usual routine of spying on Lucian. All three sisters stopped what they were and slowly turned to look at each other.

"What have we done…" Clotho whispered to herself but due to how close they were the other two were able to hear her.

"Do you really think he hates us that much or is he just saying that figuratively?" Lachesis said, sounding hopeful, wanting it to be the latter.

Atropos let out a sigh as she put down her scissors, "We can't be too sure, I don't didn't detect any hate in his tone or voice… just sadness"

"We messed up didn't we?" Clotho said with tears in her eyes, "I don't want our husband to hate us"

"We really weren't thinking about the repercussions, after all we never had to before" Lachesis muttered gripping her hair.

Atropos bit her lip, "Relax would you, since we can't fix what we've done, we can at least make his life more fortunate as a way to show our remorse and make up for what we've done"

The two other sisters nodded their head, liking the idea,

"We should get him a quest, a quest that would lead him to treasures that would be helpful or at least of use to him…" Clotho suggested.

"But would he really like that? I doubt treasures are something that would excite him much given who his father is. We may need something more, something as important as a life… THAT'S IT!" Lachesis shouted startling her sisters as they didn't expect her to shout.

Lachesis went running across her room, opening cabinets, scurrying through them, throwing out random things from inside them, "Now where is it, I know it's here somewhere."

"What are you looking for, Lachesis?" Atropos asked in a cold voice.

"You'll know my plan when you see–Ah Ha! Here it is" She yelled in an excited voice, she pulled out a ball of yarn.

Normally such an action would have just made people look at her as if she lost her marbles but not Atropos and Clotho.

Their eyes widened upon seeing the ball on string in her hands, they both then whispered, "The Red String…"

"That's right, fated partners, we will give him a fated partner… well apart from us obviously."

"But who…" Atropos asked with a raised brow wanting to see what Lachesis would respond with.

"That's the thing, Lucian really loved his mother, so to make it up to him it should be big, as a way to show our remorse, something never seen before… well give him a Virgin Goddess.

Although it may not be same and insufficient in his eyes, one of the Virgin Goddess should be able to quell his anger"

"A life for a life" Atropos said with a smile before nodding his head.

"But which one, which one do you think it should be?" Clotho asked as she went to the side and brought forth 3 strings, as for who the strings belong to it couldn't be more obvious. Artemis, Athena, and Hestia.

"But wait, what about our father…, wouldn't he be angry if he found out what we are doing?" Clotho asked as she laid the strings in front of her.

The three didn't say anything as they looked at each other for a minute before they broke out in laughter.

"Hahahahaha"

"Hehehehe"

"Hahaha, as if we cared for what he thinks, so how do we pick which one?" Atropos said in amusement.

"Ohhh I know!" Clotho said as she pointed to the first one, "Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, Catch a tiger by the toe. If he hollers, let him go, Eeny, meeny, miny, moe." She said stopping at the first one.

Both Atropos and Lachesis look at each other with a deadpan expression before sighing and deciding to go with their sister's whims.

"Alright, I guess this is the lucky lady that will have the privilege of sharing our husband." Lachesis said as she unraveled a bit of the string before tying Lucian's string with the one that one.

Earlier Back on the train:

A shock look overcame them as they looked at Lucian, their shock expression became one of pity, which caused him to snarl at them.

"Don't give me that look, I hate it, there is nothing to pity, every single one of us here have unfortunate childhoods. Do you see me looking at you like that?"

They quickly realized that he was right which led to an awkward silence, which Thalia decided to break.

"I'm honestly surprised you are alive…" Thalia said that without really thinking it through her words.

"What was that… Do you have a death wish or something, don't say shit you don't really know" Lucian said glaring at Thalia.

Thalia flinched upon noticing his look, "What I didn't say anything wrong, I'm just said that considering her history–"

"History fucking wrong, so like I said don't say shit you don't fucking know" Lucian said aggressively taking them all by surprise.

"What's with you all of sudden?" Thalia asked with worry

"I know what you were implying, you were talking about the part of my mother killing her children… which should technically be my brothers"

"Wait… there's more to the story then, there's more to the history of the Argonauts?" Annabeth asked with widened eyes upon realizing Lucian may have insider information than what's known.

Out of nowhere Lucian felt his heart make a large thump causing him to grunt and hold his chest, taking them all by surprise.

"Are you alright?!" They all asked with worry.

"Yeah… I–I don't know what just happened…"
