“It wouldn’t hurt you to have some faith. There are things bigger than we can see.” Mom clenches the steering wheel until her knuckles turn white. Snowflakes pirouette to the pristine white ground. Your head’s killing you; you take a hangover like a champion, but the sunlight reflecting off the snow is drilling you into dull, irritated, headachey oblivion.
You sigh, “You like to say that, but it doesn’t mean anything,” and run your thumb over your temple absently. You’re not being very subtle, but you don’t need to be: she already knows. That’s sort of a thing, with her.
It’s not that weird, anyway. Some mothers smoke with their daughters. Some ignore their drinking. It’s almost the same.

The Big House’s attic is a lot more pleasant now than it used to be. The same can be said of Rachel Dare, though Annabeth would hate to admit it.
The home of Apollo’s oracle is more like an art studio than anything; there’s posters advertising bands Annabeth’s never heard of, piles of dirty laundry, paint palettes and canvases and, of course, the oracle herself, chewing the end of her pencil and pensively staring a hole into the sketchpad on the easel in between the two of them.
That’s why Annabeth is here, after all. When Rachel approached her with the proposition it seemed like just the sort of ridiculous thing Rachel would run by anyone, and Annabeth has never been one to back down in the face of a challenge. Between saving the world and running from monsters and terrorizing junior campers she’s never had the chance to do many impulsive-yet-mundane teenage things.
Rachel Elizabeth Dare is someone you’d assume is an expert in doing impulsive teenage things, and if half of her stories of what goes on behind the scenes of performance art shows are true, that assumption would be more than correct. She’s hardly wild right now, though; while drawing she’s more concentrated than Annabeth has ever seen her, and that includes during divine possession.

Instead of just looking up into the sky, you’re actually gazing down into the infinite cosmic abyss, with only gravity holding you onto the surface of the earth.
