Not Just A Demigod ~ Percy Jackson

Two girls, Jayde and Aria have come to Camp Half-Blood; both demi-gods who are incredibly powerful. Why? Because they've been blessed by all 12 Olympians, and been raised on Olympus. Now a new quest is set, one that might spell the end of the world. But then again what quest hasn't.

4. Chapter 4

“ Zeus’s What” Percy asked, eyebrows furrowed. His sea-green eyes reflecting his confusion.
“ Zeus’s Gorgoneion” I explained “ In ancient Greece, the Gorgoneion was originally a horror-creating pendant.  So pretty much just a Gorgon head plastered on anything to ward off evil spirits. Athena and Zeus each have a Gorgoneion Amulet soaked in the blood of a Gorgon. One heals the other kills. And the one stolen just happened to be the one that kills”
“ So Zeus had a necklace that can kill” Thunder crackled at Percy’s statement, I flinched knowing the Gods wrath. Even I couldn’t get on his good side just his ‘to tolerant’ side. Aria managed though, he actually likes her, Weird considering her daddy is his sadistic brother. Thunder crackled again.
“ Seriously, even my mind isn’t safe” I muttered
“ Huh?”
“ Nothing Percy” Forgot he was here for a second, I can’t focus on things for a long time apart of being a Demi-God I guess. A horn blew in the distance. "I'm guessing that means dinner, right?" I turned to him, smiling. Percy nodded, and led me to what I assumed was the dining pavilion. 

Sure enough, pretty much all the campers were seated at the tables inside the pavilion. Their plates went from empty to full within a split second. That could only mean they had the same enchanted plates here that they had on Olympus. Good luck for me, then. I looked around for Aria, hoping to sit down next to her, when I noticed all the tables were assigned to children of each god. So, with a quick wave and a smile to Percy, which he gladly returned, I moved around and sat with all the other Apollo kids.

I pushed a lock of my curly black hair out of my eyes, catching a breath after my training. I'd managed to get rid of Grover after about 10 minutes. He seemed nice enough, but in an annoying way. Just as I raised my sword again, preparing for another round of hacking at a straw dummy, a horn sounded. I turned towards the sound, and saw a whole bunch of campers going up to the dining pavilion. Dinner time. I sheathed my sword, and followed the crowd.

Once I got a glimpse of the place, I noticed all the tables were filled with kids who had the same godly parent. So I wouldn't be able to sit with Jayde. Which really sucked for me, considering I had a hard time socialising with anyone and everyone. Hey, what can I say, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. 

I glanced around, looking for any sign that there might be a Hades table. I  was kind of hoping there wasn't; I'd rather sit with Dionysus and Chiron than some random half-sibling I didn't know. Unluckily for me, I noticed a boy wearing all black, his shaggy dark hair falling into his eyes. Oh yeah, that was a child of Hades for sure. Reluctantly, I trudged over to the table and sat down opposite him. "Hey," I said, causing him to look up. Briefly, a look of recognition and alarm flashed across his features, but it was gone as soon as it came. "You're a son of Hades, right?" He nodded, replying, "My name's Nico di Angelo." he hesitated, "Do you... Do you know Bianca?" I furrowed my eyebrows. Bianca? I shook my head.

"Oh, I forgot to tell you my name. It's Aria." I told him. "I'm not a demigod, though. My mum's Persephone." When I said that, he grimaced. "Not a fan, huh?" I noticed. "Well, me neither, really. I think she wishes I was more like her than dad. Sometimes I swear she doesn't even know me!" I rambled. "Yeah, I don't like her that much." he mumbled. Well, it was a start.

The other Apollo kids chatted with each other, and occasionally asked me a question, or aimed a discussion towards me, but I was too distracted to talk to them. I glanced over at the Poseidon table. Percy was the only person there. I couldn't quite see what he was eating, but he was drinking something blue. I'd have to ask him about that later. 

In the meanwhile, I thought about the quest. Aria, Percy and I. I wondered if they would get along. Percy, with his playful nature, and his comforting aura, and Aria, with her quick comebacks and her somewhat unsettling feeling. Yes, I know. I'm a terrible friend. But it's true! Even after so many years of knowing each other (hades, we were practically raised together!), I still got chills around her sometimes. Must be an Underworld thing.

After what seemed like hours, dinner was finally over, and everyone went over to the campfire to sing. Well, almost everyone. Aria lingered behind, chatting amiably with a boy who looked similar to her. Must be a half-sibling. I skipped over to Percy, who was approaching me anyway. "You going to the campfire?" He questioned, his sea-green eyes sparkling. I wish I had his eyes. They were so... 'Snap out of it Jayde!' I told myself. 

"Nah, I'd rather stay and discuss the quest tomorrow with Aria. You coming with us? You don't have to, but-" he silenced me by putting his hand over my mouth. "You ramble a lot." he grinned. I shrugged, trying to ignore the blush I felt creeping up my cheeks. "Hey Aria!" Percy called, "You coming with us?" he asked. The dark-haired girl turned to face us. "Yeah, coming! Bye Nico! You should really ask Chiron about getting a summoning pit in our cabin!" she called her brother. Summoning pit? What was she going to do with a- You know what, I don't even want to know. 

Aria jogged over to us, leaving her brother to follow the rest of the campers to the huge bonfire nearby. "So," she grinned, "What's the plan?"
