Alex Fierro may just be having the worst first day of work anyone could have.
She didn’t expect for her day to change the way it did, especially not thanks to Magnus Chase.
Part 2 Spoilers
Ellie returns to Jackson. She’s a little older and a little wiser, and prepared to face the consequences of her actions. Even if it means breaking her heart all over again.

Dina wrestles with the depths of her anger and her need to understand that Ellie is real.
The girl didn’t move, only stared, until Ellie raised the talkie she stowed at her feet and made the call.
She was switched to a different position the rest of that night.
Later on, she would learn that the girl’s name was Dina.
She was seventeen.
And she was alone.
its cute i swear, just give it a shot
“You are the dumbest person in the world,” Dina tells her, a pained laugh falling from her lips as she wipes at her eyes.
“I am the dumbest person in the world,” Ellie repeats quietly.
Dina returns home to Jackson. Ellie follows.
