Artemis sat by the lake, her finger drew circles on its surface. She gave out a frustrated sigh.

Why does that idiot take things so serious anyway? She thought. She admitted it was part of her fault. But she did try to apology earlier, well almost...but still. There wasn't any apparent reason for him to be mad and run away. Now she stuck here without knowing what to do.

she couldn't return home with a new Perseus missing. Leto gonna be so mad and she would never ever try to anger her. But she just couldn't wait here either. What if that idiot wouldn't come up? And how could he hold his breath for so long? It's been nearly ten minutes and she hadn't seen any sign of him drowning or bubbles appear on the lake's surface.

She knew she had to do something. Something to get him out of there before she gets into more trouble.

"Perseus" Artemis called out to the water. "Perseus you can come out now. You've been down there long enough."

Again, no answer, no response, no sign of him had heard her. She growled under her throat.

Percy sat at the bottom of the lake, his finger drawing the image of Artemis smiling on the sand by his finger. He didn't know why he was drawing her even when he was so mad at her. It was his mistake to bring her to this place. No, he shouldn't have to like her from the beginning. He had longed for someone to regard his presence, even just another person besides his mother. Yet now, when a second person added and that was the one he hoped most. She had disappointed him greatly.

Or strike down to the bottom to save him with the tank of fur at her back. The first option seemed to have more potential, but what if it didn't follow her up.
