Staff Of Serapis
The staff of serapis, p. The Staff of Serapis, p. Skipping classes on a regular basis to save the world from monsters and rogue Greek gods was seriously messing up her GPA. Unfortunately, her brain had been mush. She glared at the sky. Annabeth had done so many quests for Hera, but still the Queen of Heaven left presents from her sacred animal right where Annabeth could step in them. The goddess must have had a herd of stealth cows patrolling Manhattan. It was too late for the movie, but maybe they could get dinner or something.
Then she spotted the monster. It looked like a lion and a wolf lashed together, wedged butt-first into a hermit-crab shell. The shell itself was a rough brown spiral, like a waffle cone — about six feet long with a jagged seam down the middle, as if it had been cracked in half, then glued back together.
Sprouting from the top were the forelegs and head of a grey wolf on the left, a golden-maned lion on the right. They dragged it behind them down the platform, weaving left and right as they tried to pull in different directions. They snarled at one another in irritation. Then both of them froze and sniffed the air.
Commuters streamed past. Most manoeuvred round the monster and ignored it. Others just frowned or looked annoyed. Annabeth had seen the Mist in action many times before, but she was always amazed by how the magical veil could distort mortal vision, making even the fiercest monster look like something explainable — a stray dog, or maybe a homeless person wrapped in a sleeping bag.
Before Annabeth could decide what to do, both heads turned and glared directly at her. At the moment, her most deadly weapon was her backpack, which was loaded with heavy architecture books from the public library.
She steadied her breathing. The monster stood about thirty feet away. She was a child of Athena. She stared down the beast, letting it know she meant business.
Then the floor rumbled. Air rushed through the tunnel as a train arrived. The monster snarled at Annabeth. Then Crabby turned and bounded off, dragging its huge shell behind. It disappeared up the stairs, heading for the A train.
For a moment, Annabeth was too stunned to move. Given the chance, monsters almost always attacked. If this two-headed hermit crab had something more important to do than kill her, Annabeth wanted to know what it was. Then she ran up the stairs after the monster. Annabeth jumped on board just as the doors were closing. The train pulled away from the platform and plunged into darkness. Overhead lights flickered. Commuters rocked back and forth. Every seat was filled.
A dozen more passengers stood, swaying as they clung to the handrails and poles. Maybe they saw the monster as a random drunk guy. Annabeth followed. As Crabby prised open the doors to the next car and clambered through, Annabeth noticed its shell was glowing faintly.
Had it been doing that before? Around the monster swirled red neon symbols — Greek letters, astrological signs and picture writing. Egyptian hieroglyphs. As Annabeth got closer, she started to get nauseous. She felt a warm tugging sensation in her gut, as if she had a fishhook in her belly button, pulling her towards the monster. Annabeth tried to steady her nerves. She had devoted her life to studying Ancient Greek spirits, beasts and daimons. Knowledge was her most important weapon.
But this two-headed crab thing — she had no frame of reference for it. Her internal compass was spinning uselessly. She wished she had backup. She had her cell phone, but, even if she could get reception in the tunnel, whom would she call? The signals attracted monsters. Percy was way uptown. Crabby kept shoving its way towards the front of the train. Many gagged and hunched over in their seats, as if someone had opened a locker full of spoiled lunches.
Others fainted onto the floor. Annabeth felt so queasy she wanted to retreat, but the fishhook sensation kept tugging at her navel, reeling her towards the monster. The train rattled into the Fulton Street station. As soon as the doors opened, every commuter who was still conscious stumbled out.
The monster let the woman go. Both sets of eyes fixed on Annabeth as if thinking, Do you have a death wish? Then it threw back its heads and roared in harmony. The sound hit Annabeth like an ice pick between the eyes. The windows of the train shattered. Mortals who had passed out were startled back to consciousness. Some managed to crawl out of the doors. Others tumbled through broken windows.
Through blurred vision, Annabeth saw the monster crouched on its mismatched forearms, ready to pounce. Time slowed. She was dimly aware of the shattered doors closing, the now-empty train pulling out of the station.
Had the conductor not realized what was happening? Was the train running on autopilot? Only ten feet away from it now, Annabeth noticed new details about the monster. Its red aura seemed brightest along the seam in its shell.
Glowing Greek letters and Egyptian hieroglyphs spewed out like volcanic gas from a deep-sea fissure. Published:

Через пять секунд она вновь закроется, совершив вокруг своей оси поворот на триста шестьдесят градусов. Сьюзан собралась с мыслями и шагнула в дверной проем. Компьютер зафиксировал ее прибытие. Хотя Сьюзан практически не покидала шифровалку в последние три года, она не переставала восхищаться этим сооружением. Главное помещение представляло собой громадную округлую камеру высотой в пять этажей. Ее прозрачный куполообразный потолок в центральной части поднимался на 120 футов. Купол из плексигласа имел ячеистую структуру - защитную паутину, способную выдержать взрыв силой в две мегатонны.
В этой недоступной для посторонних базе данных хранились чертежи ультрасовременного оружия, списки подлежащих охране свидетелей, данные полевых агентов, подробные предложения по разработке тайных операций. Перечень этой бесценной информации был нескончаем. Всяческие вторжения, способные повредить американской разведке, абсолютно исключались. Конечно, офицеры АНБ прекрасно понимали, что вся информация имеет смысл только в том случае, если она используется тем, кто испытывает в ней необходимость по роду работы. Главное достижение заключалось не в том, что секретная информация стала недоступной для широкой публики, а в том, что к ней имели доступ определенные люди.
Беккер поднял. Дверцы автобуса открылись, но из него никто не вышел. Дизельный двигатель взревел, набирая обороты, и в тот момент, когда автобус уже готов был тронуться, из соседнего бара выскочили трое молодых людей. Они бежали за уже движущимся автобусом, крича и размахивая руками. Водитель, наверное, снял ногу с педали газа, рев двигателя поутих, и молодые люди поравнялись с автобусом. Шедший сзади, метрах в десяти, Беккер смотрел на них, не веря своим глазам.
Его так просто обвели вокруг пальца. Танкадо не собирался продавать свой алгоритм никакой компьютерной компании, потому что никакого алгоритма не. Цифровая крепость оказалась фарсом, наживкой для Агентства национальной безопасности.
