Choke Chapter 9
"Are you sure about this?" Chiron asked, rubbing his temple.
"I'm positive." Nico stood next to the window, peering out through the window. "I don't think he's aware of it yet, though."
"I hate to say this, but I need you to get him back here immediately, use any means necessary."
Nico blinked a few times, staring at the back of Chiron's head. "You've never said any means necessary before."
"Yes, well this situation calls for it. Percy will be a danger to himself and to others on the outside. We need to get him back here for training." There was a knock at the door and Leo popped his head in. "Have you located him yet, Leo?"
