The Sea God's Daughter

Bethany Krisner would have never believed that she was the daughter of a powerful Greek god. That is, until one day, when the strangest thing happened to her. She is taken to Camp Half-Blood, but will she fit in? (Before the book "The Lost Hero" by Rick Riordan)


3. Zeus' Rage


Chapter Three:

Zeus' Rage


       I wish I could say that riding the pegasus was fun. Unfortunately, it was not. I had to desperately clutch Annabeth's waist to stay on, and I closed my eyes almost immediately. I hate heights and I prefer keeping my feet firmly on the ground. This was completely out of my comfort zone.

       "Are we almost there?" I yelled over the wind. I could feel Annabeth shake with laughter.

       "We have barely left, let alone arrive. Camp Half-Blood is in New York, and since we're in Delaware, it'll be quite awhile before we get there," she yelled back. I sighed. This was going to be a long ride.

       About twenty minutes passed by, and my leg was starting to fall asleep. I shifted uncomfortably on the winged creature, but that didn't help very much.

       "Ah!" I winced as the terrible pins and needles feeling crept into my leg.

       "What's wrong?" Annabeth shouted, worried.

       "Nothing, it's just that my leg has fallen asleep." I assured her. As we flew over land, I glanced down at the busy cars and bustling people. "Won't people see us?" I asked her.

       "No, the Mist will keep them from seeing us," she explained, "to them, we probably look like a bird or an airplane." I laughed a bit to myself thinking, it's a bird, no it's a plane! Wait a minute, no, it's a pegasus!

       Not too long after, the sky began to look ominous and gray. I poked Annabeth and pointed up at the dark clouds forming. She nodded and seemed to ignore it, but I could feel her tense.

       "What's up?" I shouted.

       She glanced up at the sky again and replied, "Zeus must be angry about something to start a storm on a sunny day like this." It took me a moment to process this.

       "You mean Zeus the lightning god or whatever?" I inquired. The sky seemed to hear me, and flashed gold, letting out an earsplitting BOOM! I winced and tightened my grip on Annabeth.

       "Yes, and be careful what you say. You don't want to upset a god, especially Zeus, Poseidon, or Hades." Annabeth warned, taking a cautious look back at the sky.

       I stared blankly at her, "I think you're going to have to refresh my memory."

       "Zeus, like I said, is the god of the sky, Poseidon is the god of the ocean or sea, and Hades is the god of the underworld or death," she explained. Suddenly, a bolt of lightning came alarmingly close to us. The pegasus whinnied nervously and pulled into a dive. I held on for dear life as we rocketed towards the ground.

       Before we hit the ground, the pegasus pulled up sharply and we landed somewhat smoothly in a field. To add to our luck, the rain started coming down harder and faster.

       "Great," I muttered, "just great."
