10. The Pain...
About a minute of us walking, we ran into our first monster. It was an earthborn. I've never had to actually fight a monster but I managed. I got out my sword and started using the techniques Percy taught me. I tried ducking it's swings but it didn't help it had 3 arms on each side. It swung at me once more but this time it hit me and I have to say... It really hurts when an earthborn smacks you with three arms at once. I fell to the ground with so much pain, but I got strait back up and had a plan.
I snuck away and got in a tree right above it. I put away my sword and took out my spear. I aimed for the middle of it's head and fired. It stumbled backwards, then disolved into dust. I climbed down carefully and started walking back on course like that was no big deal...Because it wasn't... Then I looked back and realized Leo and Marci weren't moving forwards just staring at my leg. "Come on, we need to mo-" Then I fell to the ground with pain in my left leg. I looked at it and saw it... A huge gash on my leg from my mid-thigh to a little past my knee. I winced as Marci began doing first aid on it with our supplies as Leo fed me a little Ambrosia. It always tastes like good memories, but this time... it tasted like the chicken wings Leo and I shared the day I woke up from my two-three day coma.
It really took the pain off my mind. I felt the warm loving memory like it was yesterday... I watched as Leo stared in my eyes smiling but I knew it was only to distract me... I doubt he liked me the way I like him...
I saw Paris's gash on her leg and gasped and stared at it. "Come on, we need to mo-" She said and collapsed to the ground.I ran over to her and Marci started first aid as I fed her Ambrosia. She smiled as I fed it to her. I stared into her eyes with my goofy smile on my face to distract her and she smiled back. "All done!" Marci said. I smiled and helped Paris up. She winced a little as she walked but she seemed fine. Man I love this girl...
Hey! I work hard on this one so keep liking!
