After the quest has ended and Percy is back at Camp Half-blood Heremes appears to Percy. At first Percy doesn't want to talk to him because he has to tell him that Luke was not reachable; that his son has given himself over clearly to Kronos. But, Heremes doesn't give him the chance to have to explain. He seems to already know. He hands him a package that has an envelope in it. It has two words that say "Brace Yourself".
