The three story brick building was boarded over and looked like it was in need of some desperate work. Scaffolding lined part of the sidewalk in front of it. Freddy squeezed Demeter’s hand as he let go a low whistle. It sure as hell didn’t look like a meeting place of the gods. He was certain he didn’t want to take his pregnant wife in there.
She tugged on his arm. “Looks can be deceiving.”
“Doubtful.” He led her up the staircase to the weather beaten door to find a rather large, imposing, antique lock strapped to it.
Demeter reached past him. “I’ll get it. I’m…”
“One of the original six that defeated the Titans,” Freddy interrupted. “And I’m a demigod and your husband. I’m fully capable of unlocking the door even though I wish you would have stayed home.”
“Baby, it’s going to take all the firepower we have to undo this.”
“I know.” He laid his hand on the lock. It convulsed against his skin for a few moments before it popped open the door. It must have been searching for some sort of divine blood. He didn’t come by his naturally.
He nudged the door open further and they ventured inside. The interior wasn’t much better, many of the rooms empty other than discarded wooden crates and a thick layer of dust. In what must have been the living room stood Poseidon, Mack, Athena, a woman with dark hair dressed in blue jeans and a biker jacket, and a tall man with blond shoulder length hair and a five o’clock shadow. From their brief interactions, he knew they were Artemis and Apollo. Juliet was curled up in a ball on one of the boxes rocking herself back and forth. He saw her body shudder with a sob.
