4. Daniel

I tossed and turned all night. So many thoughts drumming through my head made it impossible to sleep. The wind was howling outside and constant thunder and lightning made it hard to close your eyes for a second before opening them again with shock. I sat up. Realizing I was not going to get any sleep any time soon. I walked across to the window. My heart skipped a beat as I saw a thin figure sitting up against a tree. Heart racing, I grabbed a shirt and jeans put them on along with my trainers and walked cautiously to the door of the Artemis cabin. 


A boy was sitting against a tree in the rain. He had a freckly face and unruly sandy hair. He looked up at me and smiled. "Hi Daniel" He sighed in a melancholic way. I was lost for words. Here was my best friend sitting in a forest on a dark stormy night. "James, what the Hades are you doing out?! never mind the time! Look at the weather!?" He smiled at me faintly. "its's so dark" I said blinking. He held his hand out and produced a tiny ball of light. His solemn face merged into a small smile as he played with the light between his fingers. Being a son of Apollo, James could do that kind of stuff. 


I sat with him under the tree for a while. "Even in the darkest of times," I started "you always find a way to make things light up" I grinned. He gave me a sarcastic but friendly look. "Well, Duh?" He answered.


Just as we had finished joking, a bolt of lightning struck the tree above us causing it to burn. I yelled and we rolled under the tree near missing it. All the campers had run out onto the field and the Hephaestus cabin was in flames. James looked across at it "How ironic..." He muttered with a slight grin. "DUDE!" I punched him, grabbed his arm and we ran up to the field. Ashley was there too. I watched she tripped over a piece of rubble. I lunged forwards and grabbed her hand. We looked at each other for an awkward moment. "Uh, thanks." she said brushing a strand of hair behind her ear.


Annabeth was up at the mess hall examining a large stone slab. "Oh no..." she muttered. "PIPER!" She yelled across the field. The girl with the brown choppy hair ran over to Annabeth. "Oh Gods.." She said. Campers were running round trying to rebound the lightning back up to the sky with no luck.


Annabeth turned round slowly. "this is bad." she muttered. "Really bad....."
