Sutton knew Chales was going to ask her that at some point, but she didn't mind. It was better now than ever. She took a deep breath first to calm her nerves. "I went off campus by myself for some reason, I can't even remember why. I rarely go in the outside world because being a daughter of a Titan and all, but of course with my luck I was ambushed by Kronos campers. I was too far away from camp to go back or even get help, so they knocked me out and took me to their camp. I was stuck there for a while. I lost track of how long I had been there after about three weeks. I tried to get out, but one girl against a whole camp? Not a very smart move. I only made it worse for myself. It was like hurting someone was a sport to them." She took another deep breath before continuing, "Then a blonde haired daughter of Zeus got me out somehow after a week or two. I was practically half dead when I got back to camp. I only got out of the infirmary less than a week ago." Sutton finally finished. She could feel a tear slip down her cheek but she quickly wiped it away with the back of her hand. She was starting to not be able to think about it everyday. The first few days back at camp were hard because of her fear. She still got the nightmares, and she had a feeling they wouldn't be going away anytime soon.

Sutton nodded her head, acknowledging when he said. She took a step or two back from the stall Bucker was in. "How come he's okay with you then?" She questioned as she looked at the other horses in their stalls.

Charles didn't know what to expect when he asked that question; maybe a monster encounter or an arena mishap, but he could never have imagined that it was that worse. Seeing the look on Sutton's face made him regret asking. Some words were best left unspoken, after all. Charles watched her warily as a tear rolled down her cheek. He turned away. "I'm sorry."

He patted Bucker one last time before the horse retreated to the back of the stall. He didn't take his eyes off the horse even when Sutton asked him why Bucker seemed okay with him. His hands fell to grip the fence tightly. When he spoke, his voice was softer than the nickering all around. "He was my best friend's."

Walking towards the other stalls, Charles seemed intent on cutting the topic there - busying himself by checking the hay and troughs. "You were asking about what we feed the horses? It's mostly just hay," he said, putting aside a stack of it that had toppled to the floor. "Also grass when we take them out to graze. Sometimes apples and carrots. They're like treats I guess."

Sutton knew answering his question would have made things a bit awkward and depressing. "Don't worry about it. I'm here now aren't I?" She said with a faint smile. She didn't want to think of that awful place right now. It always seemed to make her upset all over again. She was reminded of it everyday. It was rare for her to get an interrupted night of sleep. She always woke up panting. After that she'd try to go back to sleep, but she couldn't out of fear it would happen again. She asked the Hypnos campers if they could do something for her to get a full night's sleep, but they couldn't do anything. The only thing she could do was wait it out.

Sutton could tell that Chalres didn't want to talk about it. She'd rather leave the topic alone than make things worse. She nodded her head to show that she acknowledged his words. For the first in a while, she didn't know what to say. The silence between them wasn't that awkward, she thought to herself. She listened to him before asking, "Do you feed them sugar cubes?" Being the daughter of an actor, she'd seen lots of movies, and in a few of them the rider always fed the horse a sugar cube.

Sutton stayed where she was when he went to go fix the stack of hay that had fallen down. "What time do you usually wake up to come here?" She asked, attempting to change the topic of the conversation.

"Yeah. I guess that's what matters," Charles said with a small smile.

The change of topic relaxed him. After straightening out the haystack, he stepped back towards Sutton. "Sometimes, if I can nick some in the mess hall," he said. "I usually get up around five. It's nice because there's no one around and you kinda feel like you have the whole place to yourself. Ain't a thing better than a morning stroll on horseback."
