5. V. Challenge From Drew

    "Why won't you jump?" the voice boomed, "Many will be after your life tomorrow."

     I remained quiet.

     "Don't you want to avenge your mother, Jake?" it asked.

     That hit me like a pile of bricks.

     "Who are you anyway?" I asked in suspicion

     "Have you not guessed yet?" it said, "I am called by many name, but the one I'm called the most is Zeus."

     My eyes widened. "Z-Zeus?" I fumbled my words, "D-Dad?"

     "Hahaha." Zeus laughed. His laugh echoed through my dream as Chiron's had during dinner.

     "Child, tomorrow during Capture The Flag, as I've said, many will be after your life." Zeus said, "If you want the strength to survive and avenge your mother? Then jump."

     I finally gave in. I ran to the edge of the cliff and jumped.

     I dropped like a stone. The spikes at the bottom grew closer and closer. 

     "I don't want to die!" I screamed with my eyes closed.

     Suddenly, I halted in mid-air. I opened my eyes to find myself floating in mid-air. I tried to get up and my body began turn until I standing on both my feet. Well floating, actually. I willed myself to go forward and I did. Then I willed myself to go back, right, and left and my body did.

     "Considering that you are my son, you should have some cool powers, right?" I heard Zeus's voice boom from the sky. "You have the ability to control the air currents, which allows you fly.. You also have control over lightning, like me. You are not granted my other powers because you'd become too powerful."

     I flew back to the top of the cliff and said, "Thank you."

     "No problem.  You are destined to do great things, my son. Good luck." Zeus said.

     Immediately, vision turned black and once again awoke.

     I opened my eyes to find myself floating above my bed.

     "Thanks Zeus." I said under my breath.

     I flew around my room for a while until I got the hang of it. Finally, I landed on the floor and made my bed. Then I found a Camp Half-Blood t-shirt that looked like the one Beth had been wearing. I off my old one and put on the new one and then walked out the door. There I found myself face-to-face with Beth.

     "Please?" she said.

     "Please what?" 

     "Can you be my cabin's ally in Capture The Flag today?" she asked.

     "Why?" 

     "Some of our allies teamed up with the Ares group. Now all that's left is the Hermes, Apollo, Hephaestus, Dionysus, and Hecate cabins on our side! We're outnumbered!" she yelled.

     "Oh my gosh, are my ears working right? The smartest, fastest, strongest, and most beautiful at camp asking for my help?" I joked.

     She blushed.

     I examined her face. "You look cute when you smile." I joked again.

     She blushed even harder. "Shut up!" she yelled.

     "OK, OK. Just kidding." I said.

     "Anyway, can you help us?" she asked.

     "Sure." I said.

     Her face lit up.

     I put one finger up. "But I have one condition." I said.

     A frown quickly appeared on her face. "What is it." she asked.

     "You have to explain the rules to me first. I have a feeling this isn't the normal Capture The Flag that you'd play at school." I said with a smile.

     "No problem." she said.

     We walked over to the fireplace and sat down and she began explaining.

    I ptetty much understood most of what she said. She said that Capture The Flag was played in the forest, which was divided into two section by the Zephryos Creek. Both teams had a flag and had to hide it somewhere, but that place had to be visible. We used swords, armor and other weapons and armor.. Magical items were allowed, whatever that meant. There was no maiming or killing during the game. If an opponent surrenders, they are to go to the other team's jail and they're not allowed to leave until a teammate comes and frees them. The only way to win is to capture the other team's flag and run across to the other side of the creek with it.  Fun, huh?

     "Chiron serves as the referee and battlefield medic. " she finished, "An question?"

     "Yes just one," I said, "Is my death going to be slow or quick?"

     She ignored me. "Thanks for helping us out. Come on, let's go to Swords and Shields. They're skipping cabin inspections today." she said as she ran in the direction of arena.

     When we arrived, they were people everywhere. Some where sitting down, and some where in the arena. For some reason, everyone focused on one guy in the arena who seemed to be training the others. He was tall and looked stronger that the others. His blonde hair sparkled in the morning as his eyes careful watched his trainees practicing.

     He looked at me and Beth as we walked down the stairs. He stood up all the way and held his head high.

     "That's Drew Mainer, son of Ares. He has, well, a crush on me." Beth whispered to me.

     I immediately burst out laughing. Everyone turned their heads and looked at me. I ignored them and kept going down the steps until we were at the bottom, where Drew stood awaiting our arrival. Well, Beth's I'm guessing.

     When we reached the  bottom, Drew grabbed Beth's and kissed it. "Come to challenge my cabin?" he asked.

     She pulled her hand away."No, thank you." . She grabbed my hand and pulled me toward a front row seat.

     Suddenly, I felt a strong hand grab my shoulder and stop me. I immediately knew that it was Drew.

     "I challenge you to a cabin fight, Jake." I heard him say.

     "Why not?" I said looking for a chance to shut him up.

     'What are you doing?!" Beth asked.

     I let go of her hand and turned around to face Drew. Number one, Drew had his sword ready, two, everyone had cleared out of the arena except for a few who also had had their swords drawn, and three, I had no idea what I had gotten myself into.

     "Why are they with you?" I asked.

     He pursed his lips. "Are you stupid? A cabin challenge means that the whole cabin fights." he said.

     What?!

     "Now lets get started?" he said.

     Everyone charged at me but Drew who just stood there and watched as his half-brothers attacked.

     The first one reached me in about two seconds. Be brought his sword down quickly and I quickly grabbed my necklace, Lightning, which turned into a sword, blocking his attack. He mouth dropped opened in surprise and I hit him on the forehead with my hilt, knocking him out.

     The others stopped dead in their tracks.

     I swung my around and said, "Who's next?"

     They all immediately charged again. It was harder than I thought blocking and dodging them together, even if my senses were heightened. But somehow, I managed. Finally, I got tired of them attacking and I switched to offense as well. They stepped back with every attack I threw at them. Finally, I saw an opening and took it. When all their swords were lowered at the time, I swung Lightning with its flat side, knocking them all out. They all fell to the ground and I stepped over them to face Drew.

     Before I could charged, I heard a battle cry coming from behind me. I turned around to find the someone charging at me. I recognized him as the first person I'd knocked out. I guess he must recover quickly. He swung his sword and I quickly bent back,, letting the sword pass over my face.

     Yes! I've always wanted to do something like this after I watched Neo The Matrix. I felt like I'd just accomplished a life long dream. OK, back to the fight.

     As I bent back, I controlled the air currents around me to keep my back steady as I kicked him in the stomach. He fell back, butt first. I chuckled and  got back up. I turned back around for the second time and faced Drew. Then I got an idea.

     "Hey Drew, what do you say we finish this during Capture The Flag?" I asked.

     A sinister smile spread on his face. "Sure why not?" he replied, "Winner gets to be Beth's girlfriend."

     "Sure whatever." I said.

     I let go of Lightning. It disappeared and reappeared around my neck as a necklace again. I heard a few 'ohhs' and 'awws' from the crowd when Lightning transformed. I walked back Beth and sat next to her. 

     "What did you just do?!" she yelled at me.

     I put my hands up in defense. "I changed the time of the duel." I said.

     "You fool! You just agreed that whoever wins during your duel gets to be my boyfriend!" she exclaimed.

     "Oh, that? Don't worry, I wont make you my girlfriend when I beat him." I said.

     "You have no idea what you got yourself into, do you?" she asked.

     I smiled and shook my head. "Nope. No idea at all."
