He didn't like gymnasiums; specifically gymnasiums set up for dances. A scowl on his young face, Nico sat on the bleachers shuffling through his mythomagic cards. When he came to a particular creature he paused and a brief smile lit up his face before it turned a bit sad and nostalgic. The picture depicted on the card was the three headed cerberus. Nico had had a chance to meet a real cerberus, even become friends with it. That had been a few months ago though back when he and his sister were staying at the hotel in Nevada before their family lawyer came and brought them to this place. Nico hated it here. It was all military and uniforms and drills and getting up early. And there were creepy people here. They sort of reminded him of glimpses he'd gotten of people in Washington, D.C.

Sighing, he shuffled his card some more and wanted January to hurry up. The cerberus said he'd come visit him on his birthday. That was a whole month away! And what if he couldn't find him all the way over here? Whenever the cerberus came to visit and took him to play, it had been while he and Bianca had lived at the casino. It had been a very awesome summer! He learned how to do something that was called shadow travel. Bianca hadn't believed him and didn't want him to try and prove it to her. So he'd sulked and didn't say anything about it again. She hadn't believed he'd had a puppy visit him either. It hadn't helped that every time he saw the dog, it seemed to get bigger.

Scuffing the toe of his boot against the polished gym floor, he looked up when a shadow loomed over him. It was the vice principle. The man gave Nico the shivers. It was like the man was always watching him, analyzing him, and waiting. That was one reason that he stuck close to his sister. She always protected him and knew what to do. This time though, she had gone to the bathroom leaving him alone.

"Hey!" he yelped when the man's hand descended on his shoulder and grabbed him by the collar of his black long sleeve shirt. The movement had caused him to drop his cards as he was dragged out of the gym and into the hall.

"Let's go find your sister, shall we?" The man asked in that weird tone he had when he talked.

"Lemme, go!" Nico tried to kick the teacher in the shin but jerked off balance and nearly fell and choked himself because the man still had hold of his shirt near his collar. "Awk!"

Busy trying to not choke himself and desperate to try and do something he did the only thing he could think of. He attempted to shadow travel. Unfortunately he wasn't concentrating properly and never had tagged alone with anyone but the cerberus. The next thing Nico knew was that they were in the snow outside the school. Both teacher and student were temporarily in shock but the man recovered before the boy. There was elation and triumph in the man's expression that Nico didn't like. Busy tugging at his shirt trying to get away, kicking and flailing he failed to notice they weren't alone anymore.

When Alexei had received the quest from Ares he had been very shocked and weary of what the God wanted, after all, fetching Lord Hades' kids to bring them to Camp Half-Blood wasn't going to be an easy task, considering that with them being Children of the Big Three, Alexei would have to be more careful about where they went and how he fought. It wouldn't be easy but he was going to make sure that the two children got to camp without any problems.

The quest, he was sure, would be a headache and a half so he had decided to go on his own, not wanting to risk any other demi-god on a quest that would, and could, quite possibly end up potentially dangerous with two children of Hades there. As children of Hades, Nico and Bianca Di Angelo were tasty food for the monsters out in the world and travelling with the two of them would bring danger to Alexei as well and he had no want or need to bring newbie demi-gods who could get killed at thinking they were invincible.

Making his way to Maine hadn't been hard especially since he had gotten all the particulars of the quest that informed him that the two children were in the school there. When he got there, he had been glad that he got there that quickly as the only thing he saw was the young child, a boy no older than ten or even eleven, being manhandled by an older looking man who was looking very elated for some reason but Alexei didn't care for that, the only thing he cared for was the child trying to get away from the bigger and clearly stronger male.

"I would let him go if I were you," Alexei said coldly as he stood behind the man, a dagger in Alexei's hand as he held it to the man's neck, his eyes flashing in anger before he focused on the young boy. "Are you okay Nico?"

It had been awhile since he had last shadow traveled because each time he had done so, it had left him tired. This time had been no different but he knew that he had to fight but then he registered the sound of another voice and his struggles ceased as he looked beyond his captor. He stared, his angry and scared gaze fixed on the man and his –bronze?- blade at the teacher’s throat. The creepy thing that made Nico’s voice freeze in his throat and stark terror to course through him was that the blade didn’t seem to faze the man. In fact, the man’s eyes lit up with a hunger as he inhaled deeply, the mouth stretching into a cruel smile.

“Do you really want to do that, demigod?” The teacher’s form seemed to blur and shift for a moment and suddenly SCHHWAFF- something whizzed by and grazed Nico’s cheek causing the boy to let out a sound of both surprise and pain. There was something hovering behind the teacher’s shoulder that he couldn’t quite see. “The next one won’t graze him and I would much rather have him alive.”

Nico’s heart pounded in his chest as he began to feel woozy and slumped a little in the tight grip on his shirt. What had cut him was a spike and the boy was very much scared. If Cerberuses were real and other things he’d seen that were on his cards, this teacher must have been a monster! He tried to wrack his mind what could shoot spikes but his mind went blank as he screamed in pain clutching the cut on his cheek.

“That would be the poison.” The teacher-monster stated in a sadistic tone.

There was something with the man that just made Alexei's blood boil in anger, his eyes slitting and his teeth bared, a barely-seen breeze ruffling his clothes and hair as he watched something hit Nico, the stench of poison filling his nostrils before the bronze blade in his hand suddenly struck itself in the man's collarbone, his other hand shooting out to grasp a hold of the hand that was holding Nico and he twisted it, smirking in delight at feeling of bones grinding against each other.

"Would you please let Nico go?" Alexei said with a pleasing tone of voice, though the look on his face was anything but pleasant as small sparks of lighting started to appear in random intervals around him, the breeze suddenly picking up the more he watched the man hold Nico. "I really don't want to get violent but I will if I have to."

He was quite sure the man wouldn't listen which was why he had another dagger in his hand, this one poised at the man's heart, the bronze tip digging into the skin. The scream from Nico made Alexei flinch and he cursed himself for not being quick enough to stop the spike that had hit the boy, unfortunately, though he doubted that he'd be able to get any quick help for Nico anytime soon. Maybe he should've brought one of the Apollo kids with him?

The manticore snarled and shifted its form completely losing the appearance of a human after the bronze blade dug into his pelt. The suit it had been wearing burst unable to contain its monstrous form inside the clothing. His face stayed humanoid, but the mouth chanted to that of a predatory carnivorous animal. The human body contorted and became that of a lion while its tail was fully that of a very large scorpion.
Showing its sharp incisors the monster’s answer to the other’s plea was obvious as its mouth closed around the demigod’s arm that held the weapon at its throat. One paw threw the younger demigod since there wasn’t any worry that the incapacitated boy would escape. It wasn’t worried if the boy died as there was another one in the school that could be just as useful. The scorpion tail whipped out and tried to strike the older demigod in the back.

“To think I found three children of the elder gods,” the manticore laughed cruelly jumping away from the demigod after he’d released the arm from his maw. “My master will reward me handsomely.”

Alexei jumped back from the monster way before the human form disappeared to reveal the monstrous form of a Manticore; a monster that Alexei had more than once seen on quests and just in the forests in general, he even remembered seeing one when he was younger as it tried to kill him.

The moment the sharp incisors bit down on his arm, Alexei used his other hand to pull out his third, and last dagger, out its holster on his back and he stuck it into the other's back, wincing as the sharp teeth were pulled away from his tender flesh, leaving deep bite marks though he paid it no attention, there was no need for him to worry at the moment he wouldn't die just yet.

"...What?" The brunette blinked his eyes at those words but decided to push them away from his mind, he'd figure it out later, when he wasn't fighting for his life and the two children of Hades. It wouldn't do if either Nico or Bianca died on his watch and he wasn't about to fail this quest in any form.

A tiny voice in the back of his head was telling him to use the lightning that was flickering around his body and without even thinking about it, Alexei tossed a lighting bolt towards the Manticore, his eyes widening at the sparks flying in the space between him and the Manticore, watching as said lightning bolt hit the Manticore.

What... the hell?! He didn't remember ever doing that before!

Konan was traveling with Alexei on his quest. Sometimes taking his full cerberus form. He was very excited to be able to help Alexei. More so when he learned the quest was to retrieve his little Nico Nico. This made him very, very happy and excited. They had made good time and distance. His rubbing his scent all over the other. Running around in his puppy form the closer they got. Yipping before shifting to his human form and then back to his puppy form. -So excited! A quest with my mate and not only that we're saving nico nico. Nico and his sister. Yay! I am so happy and excited.- The other stated with all three hands yipping. Tails wagging and form traveling with Alexei.

Small skip to the current time

His excitement would be short lived because his senses went crazy. They arrived at their destination and he took off. Howling and growling as he took down a hidden smaller monster that was eyeing the vunerable form of Nico di Angelo. Growling and tried to warn Alexei but everything happened so fast. He went from super happy to super angry. All three heads let out this eerie and bone chilling howl as the smell of brimstone, sulfur and hellfire filled the area. Sulfur filling the area and Konan's primal beast instincts smothered Konan. His Cerberus genetics were in full blown mode. When the smoke cleared....all the two demi-gods would see was thisdark fur blur.

There was a trail of burned ground as the red eyed and raging cerberus hound (puppy) that was Konan was livid. This Manticore DARED attack BOTH his boys?! "Big Mistake" (Konan) "You." (left head) "Will" (right head) "DIE!!!" (three heads in unison) Even as they rushed there was the noticeable feeling of death in the air. The lightning strike startling Konan as the yelp left but anger was a stronger force. "YOU HURT OUR DEMI-GODS AND AIMED TO EAT THEM! FOR THIS WE SHALL SEND YOU TO THE DEPTHS OF THE UNDERREALM!!!" They shouted in synchronization. The three headed hound launched into the manticore and landed. tails moving like weapons as the headed tail bit in and the three heads began tearing into the manticore even as they were stung and knocked off. The large (but still small compared to his father) form of Konan began to fight with and tear into the Manticore. It wasn't dead yet but it was badly injured.

Howling as the middle head looked at Alexei. -Get Nico. I got this. We'll get Bianca. You need antidote. Konan will protect and carry you all- He said through their bond link and was soon struck on the face and whined. That stung! That stung! It angered him more! Launching at the manticore aggressively. He would take it down...

(((OOC Note: Cut off to allow the manticore and nico and alexei all a chance to react before the finishing blows hit Razz )))

Shivering in the cold, Nico sat up from where he'd been flung, his body aching and the right side of his face burning from the cut he'd received. A soggy shirtsleeve was pressed against the wound as he tried to stay conscious. Unsure if his mind was playing tricks or not, the boy's eyes which had been near shut from pain and were very wet, he'd seen the lightning that hit the monster. His vision blurred when he saw a massive black form and a familiar voice that wasn't familiar at the same time. The words were muffled and all he was able to make out was a howl before he lost the battle and dropped to the snow again this time unconscious. If he'd been awake he would have seen something he'd never seen before.

The manticore hadn't anticipated the cerberus. Nor had it known that the demigod would be able to summon lightning! The blast caused the monster to shriek as hole was blasted in it. The cerberus' rage filled attack wasn't something he could shake off nor fight and had already been dissolving when it had hit. There was confusion along with the pain because the cerberus wasn't supposed to be here but in the Underworld guarding the gates. The manticore snarled and swore vengeance when it was able to reform. For now it allowed itself to turn to dust and yellow vapor as his essence went down to the Underworld.

Alexei had known that Konan had been following him, it had been impossible to not feel the Cerberus who was also his mate, just trailing behind him but not actually getting in his way. He hadn't minded, the Cerberus was a welcome companion to all of this, especially since it meant that he would be able to get Nico away and into safety along with Bianca, the elder sister of the youngest Di Angelo.

Nodding his head at Konan's order, the demi-god went over to Nico, grimacing as he watched the would seep poison, he'd seriously have to get Nico to camp and to the Apollo cabin, hopefully, Adrian would be there to help him save the youngest son of Hades. The Apollo demi-god wasn't exactly friendly but he and Alexei had a tentative friendship going on.

"I'm so sorry Nico." He whispered softly as he gingerly picked the half-blood up and cradled the young child towards his chest as he stepped further away to watch Konan battle it out with the Manticore though there pretty much didn't seem to be much left of the monster after Alexei had literally fried him with the lightning, which he still wasn't too sure about. He had no idea where it came from.

(I swore this was posted to already. its not as great as the originals but I quickly put a new one together)



Konan sent the manticore down and ensured this specific manticore would never respawn anywhere. He wiped his faces and paws in the cold ground. Seeing Alexei nodding his head he focused on taking out the second monster that arrived to see what was taking the original one so long.Fiercely attacking before taking it out. For a second he poofed back into his small form. Landing with a soft ploof sound in the soft stuff around them. After a minute returning to the bigger form and ran over to where Nico and Alexei were. Rushing over as the left head and right head worked together to relocate Alexei and Nico onto his back. The middle head turning and licked both boys injuries. Nuzzling both and whining. He waited for Alexei's instructions. What happened? Why did Nico Nico go still?

Had Alexei been a bit quicker then maybe Nico wouldn't be in such pain but then again maybe he would've been worse off; there was no need to actually think of the maybe's though, what happened had happened and Alexei needed to get Nico to safety behind the camp barrier.

Just as he was leaning down to pick up Nico, that's when a bag wrapped around his neck came into his view and he cursed himself for forgetting; damn it, why did he forget that he had some Ambrosia on him all this time? Quickly opening the bag, he pulled a small plastic bottle out of it and eyed the nectar inside it.

Uncorking it, Alexei placed one hand under Nico's head and pulled him to sit up just a tiny bit as he started pouring some of the nectar down Nico's throat. "Come on Nico, swallow it." He ushered the child as he rubbed his throat, urging the unconscious demigod to swallow the healing drink.

Watching with baited breath, Alexei let out a sigh of relief as Nico finally swallowed the nectar; it would slowly start to heal the young demigod and hopefully, it would be enough until they got to the camp.

"Konan, we need to fetch Bianca and then we need to head back to Camp. We're ahead of schedule but I'd rather be behind camp barriers with Nico to get him treated then get caught unaware again." He told the Cereberus softly, leaning down to nuzzle his face in the Cerberus' fur.
