Chapter 40

Piper

  • Piper wakes up in a sidewalk café with stylish new duds. Leo and Hedge have also gotten a makeover, but Aphrodite left Jason mostly alone because he's sexy just as he is.
  • Hedge says Mellie blew them across the country and cushioned their fall.
  • Aphrodite left them with some money too, so they can pay for their coffee.
  • They talk about how evil Gaea is and then head off for Mount Diablo to rescue Piper's dad.
