32. chapter 25
"i have lived with depression since i was 13. I started cutting because nobody cared about me, in school everyone bullied me and they said all these nasty things and i believed every single word they said, my parents abused me, and my mother was an alcoholic. I tried to kill myself four times. the fourth time i tried to kill myself i thought that drowning mylesf might work, thats when i met my father, Annabeth, Percy, Grover, and Clarisse. When i found out i was part mermaid i was so happy. I remember the time i found out i was part fairy. I was so lonely and i had a really bad day so i ran from my problems and i ended up by the pond i showed you. i started to cry but i thought that a song that my father had taught me might make me feel better. After i sang the lyrics And i had wings, and i could fly i felt something on my back and i saw wings at first i freaked out but then i heard a noise behind me so i went and hid in the bushes, i looked out and saw a girl with wings that looked younger than me. i guess she saw a little bit of my wings because she walked over and said i know your there. show yourself i won't hurt u she was the only one who was nice to me. she could tel that i was frightened but she taught me how to fly and she gave me a book listing all the tings fairies could do and how they did them. When she saw that i could do everything in the book she was surprised and told me that it was very rare for a fairy to be able to do all that stuff. I started cutting again for every word they called me. When i met you everything changed i was happier than i had ever been. I stopped cutting for a year which is the longest i have ever been without cutting, but all this stuff happening i just feel like its all my fault and now other people will pay for it" i was now crying and so was he.
"how would this be your fault?" i asked. "Luke the guy that is trying to attack us is after all the pieces of kronos and i suggested that we hide some here and im the only one who knows where they are but luke knows how to get the answer out of me. He threatened to kill my Step-mother and my father" "none of this is your fault you were just trying to help now lets think of a plan"
"There is this song spell that has been banned from mermaids called the enchantment song. Come on. Let's go get the others then I will tell all of you my plan but we all need to go somewhere soundproof and secret and I know just the place."
