30. chapter 24
It has been two days since the 'teal hair' incident and I am horrified. I just found out that Luke is going to attack because we have hidden a couple pieces of Kronos in the underwater kingdom. Percy and Annabeth are here. Since Percy is son of Poseidon, he can breath underwater but since Annabeth can't breathe I have her a special potion that will enable her to breathe underwater. "hey are you okay?" I jumped and realized that i am shaking. "Yeah i'm fine" i'm terrified. I forgot niall was even there. i just got lost in my thoughts. i started to swim to the sacred garden, it was one of the three places i could clear my mind. "Hey Tessa!" i turned around to see Annabeth. "Hey" i said and put on a fake smile. "whats wrong? i can tell thats a fake smile" Damn it! "I'ts just that this whole thing scares me. what if someone gets hurt! I feel like its my fault if someone gets hurt because Luke is gathering the pieces of kronos. I'm the one who suggested to hide in the castle" i started to cry. It really would be my fault, plus i am already...wait where did all my injuries go? A couple minutes later Niall came out and asked Annabeth why i was crying. I wiped my tears away and got up. "lets go inside" Annabeth suggested. i nodded. what if any of the boys get hurt. what if sara or becca gets hurt. i grabbed a bag and put a blade and a seaweed bracelet. I transformed in to a fairy (of course making sure their were no boats around) and flew out of the water. i was hovering over the water and went to the small deserted island. i opened the secret door to the moon pool, went inside, and sat down. i got the blade out of my bag and cut my arm. 10 cuts to be exact. I sat there bleeding and crying. "this is all my fault and now everyone is paying for my mistake" i said to myself while crying. once the bleeding stopped i put the blade back in the bag and put the bracelet on. i was sitting on the beach when someone's head popped out of the water. It was Luke. I flew up making sure he didn't see me, but he saw me. "why look who i found. it's that little slut tessa" he said to the guy who was next to him. "what do you want" i said while wiping away my tears. "i want you to tell me where you hid the pieces of kronos" he chuckled and smirked. "I will never tell you!" i said trying to defend myself. "if you dont tell me i will kill your father and your stepmother" a tear escaped my eyes. No! no more crying. "i will give you some time to think about it"and with that his boat came and the sailed away. i was so high up so i got my tail and my wings out at the same time and i swam as fast as i could to my dad. I cant loose him. he is the only blood-relative that cares about me.
Tessa finally came back to the castle. Her eyes where all red and puffy. "what happened?" i am really worried. "i have to tell my parents so you can listen while i tell them." "okay" i looked at her wrist and she was wearing a bracelet and it looked like it had a little blood on it. "What happened to your arm?" "nothing" she said almost instantly. we arrived at the study where her parents were and she told them everything. "what i was thinking was that i make a huge bubble around the city and the castle so that we cant be seen and so we have a barrier" tessa said. "No we cant do that. If some thing happens to the bubble you could get seriously injured or die and if something happens to you then the barrier will disapear" her step mom said. "well we need to think of something that will keep the city hidden" After tessa said that we left i lead us back to our room where we could talk in private. "Your wrist is bleeding, is it okay if i look at it for a second" she removed the braclet and started to cry when she saw my facial expression.
