Seaweed Brain's sister

If you're a Percy Jackson fan you would have regonized this right away. Anyways this a story I made. It's about a girl who comes to Camp Half-blood and Percy is shocked at who she is. The seven from the Heros of Olympus series including Nico Di Angelo and this girl are going on a new quest. A love triangle brews between this girl and two others. Will this change how the quest will turn out? Who will return and who will not?

I've also put this story on Wattpad if anyone is interested. My username is lottieismyname so look that up and you'll see it on there. I couldn't put the cover page on for some reason though.

17. Decisions (Read Author's note)

~Amanda~

The clanging of the swords rang through the room. Jason and Leo sat on the side, watching intently. My hair started to fly out of my ponytail but I was more focused on my opponent. He went to swipe under my feet and I jumped. Once my feet touched the ground again, I lunged at him. 

He jumped out of the way and tried to hit me with the hilt of his sword but I blocked it. Doing a barrel roll, I whipped around and the tip of my sword met with flesh. Wilfred dropped his sword in surprise but then smiled. "You've gotten better" he complimented. I returned the smile and sat on the floor. "I had some help" I replied. The door to the training room opened and Alessio walked in with Lizzy.

I lay down on my back and stared up at Alessio. "Hello brother" I greeted. He crouched down right behind my head and poked my forehead. I scrunched up my nose and poked his cheek in return. Alessio laughed and helped me up. "How was practice?" he asked me.

I smirked as I threw my arms around Wilfred from behind. "I totally whipped his butt. Bet I could do the same to you" I challenged Alessio. He raised an eyebrow at me and picked up Wilfred's sword. I lightly pushed Will out of the way as I picked up my own sword. We took our stance and lunged.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Victory. Is. Mine!" I laughed at Alessio as he bent over and placed his hands on his knees to support his weight. He wiped some sweat off his brow and flicked it at me. I smacked him on his shoulder in return. "That was sad" Leo said while chuckling. We all laughed at him, even Jason cracked a smile. He's been so stoic this whole time, it was nice to see him smile.

"Your Highness? There's a visitor" Luke called as he entered the training room. I shook my hair out of its ponytail and glanced at him. "Who is it?" I asked. "It's... It's Lady Clara" he replied.

Alessio, Wilfred, and I froze. Lizzy groaned while Leo and Jason looked at us confused. "Lady Clara? Who's that?" Jason asked. "No time. Luke, take them to change. Lizzy, Will, and Alessio you guys go change too. I'll dress Alex and myself and we will meet you all in the ballroom" I instructed. They all nodded and went off. 

I sighed and ran my fingers through my hair. This is going to be interesting.

I rushed out of the training room and to Alex's. She was sitting with Gabby while they played with dolls. Alex looked up at me while grinning widely. “Mommy! Come play with us!” she cheered. I smiled but shook my head. “No time right now baby. We've got to get you all dressed up” I said as I picked her up.

Gabby looked at me, confusion on her face. “Lady Clara is here. I’m assuming it’s about Mother and Father. Find Alberto and he’ll get you a dress” I whispered to her. She nodded quickly and left. “What’s going on momma?” Alex asked, her big green eyes looking up at me.

“We have a visitor. Can you guess who it is?” I asked as I put her on the bed and started looking through her closet. “Hmm… Is it Harrison?!” she squealed excitedly. I chuckled at the thought of her friend. He was six years old and Alex’s first ever friend. He had big blue eyes and blonde hair. Many people thought he was Wilfred’s younger brother.

I found a pink dress and pulled it out. “No, it’s not Harrison. Come here” I instructed. She quickly rushed over. “What time did you take a bath?” I asked as I started to unbutton her shirt. “This morning, after breakfast” she replied. I nodded and got the rest of her clothes off.

I helped Alex put on the frilly pink dress. I sat her down in front of her vanity and started to brush her tangled curls. I dragged my fingers through the now silky strands. “Beautiful. Now, come along Alexandria” I said. She stood up and slipped on a pair of white flats before following me to my room. I had her sit on the bed to wait for me while I got dressed.

After showering and drying my hair, I pulled on a fluffy white robe. I opened the bathroom door and went over to my closet. “Alex honey, which dress should I wear?” I asked as I pulled out two dresses. One was a dark red with black designs on it and ruffles on the bottom and sleeves while the other was a long, blue dress that got darker at the bottom. The front of it rose up a bit and the straps were spaghetti straps.

I didn’t hear a reply so I turned around. My gaze softened at the sight of Alex sleeping on my bed. She was slightly curled up and her hands were curled into small fists. “Guess we’ll just brush your hair again” I sighed. I went over to the mirror and held up the dresses in front of me. After switching a few times, I decided on the blue dress and put it on.

I slipped on a pair of dark blue heels and a small black jacket. I went over to my vanity and sat down. Brushing my hair, I decided to curl the ends. I only put on eyeliner and lip gloss for makeup. A knock on the door echoed in the room. “Come in” I called out. I heard the door open just as I clipped on my sea necklace and weapons charm bracelet. Someone walked over and put their hands on my shoulders. I looked in the reflection of the vanity mirror to see Alessio, a small smile on his face.

“You are so beautiful Amanda” he whispered. I reached up and placed my hand on top of his. “Thank you” I whispered back. “What about me, uncle?” a sleepy voice said from over the bed. We both turned to see Alex sitting up while rubbing her eyes. The warmth left my shoulders as Alessio walked over to my bed, sitting down on it, and picking her up. “Of course you’re just as beautiful as your mother. Maybe even more” he playfully said. She giggled then wrapped her arms around his neck, still looking sleepy. “We have to go. She’s waiting” Alessio told me. He stood up while holding Alex in his arms.

I nodded and followed him out of my room as we headed towards the ballroom. It only took a matter of minutes but we ended up in front of the large doors. I turned to look at Alessio. “Are you ready?” he asked me. I took a deep breath then nodded. I opened the door and we walked into the ballroom.

Standing in the middle of the room was an elegant looking woman. Her silver hair was pulled into a half up, half down hair style. Her burgundy dress flowed to the floor and a diamond necklace rested on her pale skin. The moment she turned to Alessio and I, Alex squealed.

“Grandma!” she yelled and jumped out of Alessio’s arms. Alessio’s grandmother and the woman who I call grandmother as well, Clara Nicholson, smiled and picked up Alex and spun her around. “Hello my darling. You look lovely today” Clara cooed. Alessio and I stepped forward. He bowed while I gave a graceful curtsey to Clara.

Her green eyes widened as she stared at me. “Oh, Amanda, my darling. You’re home!” Clara handed Alex to Alessio and wrapped me up in a tight hug. I returned the hug and pulled away while smiling. “Grandmother, I missed you. How have you been?” I asked. She led me over to a couch we had in the ballroom. I took notice of Jason, Leo, Wilfred, Gabby, and Lizzy entering the ballroom all at once as Clara sat me down. “Life has been stressful. Once you disappeared, all of the kingdoms went into chaos. Your mother and father nearly lost all hope but they received a letter, telling of your location. They went alone and then they disappeared as well. Your poor grandfather has gone ill because of it all.” Clara explained.

“Wait, they received a letter? Did it say who it was from?” I questioned. “The only initial was an M. The princes and I tried to tell them it was suspicious but they wouldn’t listen” she cried. A hand landed on my shoulder and I looked up to see Jason. His eyes were filled with something but I couldn’t tell what. “Who is this?” Clara asked. I stood up and she did as well. Jason and Leo stood behind me. “Grandmother, this is Jason and Leo. They are friends of mind who helped me in my disappearance. Guys, this is my grandmother, Clara Nicholson” I introduced them. Jason shook her hand while Leo gave a cheeky smile and a hand wave.

Wilfred came up and gave Clara a respectful bow. “It is a pleasure to see you again, Lady Clara” he said. Clara smiled but I could see that it was a tired smile. “You as well, Prince Wilfred. It is always a delight to see you” she replied. Luke stepped forward and bowed before addressing us all.

“If everyone is ready, dinner has been set” he said. “Well, shall we then?” Alessio said. We all nodded and Alex clapped her hands in excitement. We all headed to the dining hall and sat down. Lady Clara sat at the head of the table, I sat to her right with Alex next to me then Wilfred and Lizzy. Alessio sat on her left with Jason, Leo, and Gabby. The butlers brought out platters of food and placed them in front of us all. As we ate, there was small conversation.

“Well, now that you’ve returned, Amanda, we can search for your parents together. They will be happy to find that you’re staying in the manor once again” Clara said. I paused and put down my fork. “Grandmother, I’m sorry. I cannot stay at the manor at the moment” I apologized. She stopped eating, as did everyone else. Alex turned her large green eyes to stare up at me. “What do you mean mommy?” she questioned. “Yeah, what do you mean you’re not staying?” Alessio exclaimed. “You cannot just leave. What about Alex and your responsibilities as the princess as Altaria?” Clara shot at me.

I turned to look at Jason and Leo. They both had confusion swimming in their eyes. I looked back to the broken faces of my grandmother and my brother. “When I was gone, I found my real family. I have a brother, Alessio. His name is Percy Jackson and he’s my twin. Our mother is named Sally Jackson and they both live in New York. I have a responsibility there” I explained. “You have a responsibility here as well! I will not allow you to just drop that and run off to some family that didn’t even want you!” Alessio snapped. He soon realized what he said when he saw me shaking in anger.

“How dare you! You have no right to say that. I am leaving and you cannot stop me!” I yelled. I pushed out my chair, got up, and ran out of the dining room. I ran until I got to my bedroom and collapsed on my bed. Angry tears threatened to spill out of my eyes but I held them in. Alessio did have a point though.

Why was I so willing to go and help Percy when Sally kept him instead of me?
