1009. carter kane hated going to museums in the winter. there was one time a few years ago when he went to a museum in washington dc. he remembered looking at aircraft models when a sudden terrifying roar filled his ears. he turned around and was shocked to see a hummer-sized lion with glistening metallic skin. he remembered hiding in a gift shop and watching a dark-haired boy with a sword and a girl with a spear charge the beast as two other girls dressed in silver climbed an aircraft, shooting arrows. then the boy ran inside the gift shop carter had hidden in and grabbed a few things, prepared to run back outside. it wasn’t until he saw carter, with his wide and scared eyes, underneath the register that the boy stopped, grinned, and told him not to worry. after that, carter never went inside a museum during the winter, afraid that maybe a large lion made of metal might be there and the dark-haired, green-eyed boy wouldn’t.
690. among the many ancient histories and mythologies annabeth studied, egyptian was one of her favorite, her favorite studies coming from julius kane. she had planned on seeing one of his lectures and was shocked to find out he had died recently. she sent a letter to the son she knew traveled with him. she sent him her condolences and told him how much she respected his father and was disappointed she never got to ask him her many questions. the letter eventually made its way to carter kane, and he replied that he’d be glad to answer any of her questions. usually discussing archaeology and architecture, the two have been pen pals ever since.
