Chapter One: Nico Makes a Girl Cry Ice
Chrion just told us that we need to go on a search for a camper. Not just any camper though, a daughter of Khonie. She used to be here, i think I was here for a month until she ran away. Me, Annabeth, Nico and Grover leave to get her at dawn. I have only seen her once before but, her eyes literally looked like snow flakes.
**Time jump; Dawn**
We got into the cab with Argus, our 100 eyed body guard, and headed for the city. On the way, Nico looked really... sad. I mean he always is but, not this bad. I decide to leave it be and stay silent for the rest of the 2 hour drive.
We get to NYC and check everywhere. You name it, we checked it. The alley ways, the M&M factory, time square and the disney store! We all decided it would be better if we got something to drink and a snack and conveniently, a Starbucks is right next to us. We walk in and we all shiver. Annabeth gives me the she is here...somewhere look and i nodded. I got my white chocolate mocha and a brownie and sat down. Everyonee sits down and awkwardly starts eating. Grover is silently eating his cup and Annabeth is on Daedalus's laptop. I look at Nico and notice he is staring at someone.I glance in the direction of his stares and see a girl with brown hair in a braided bun and a sword at her side,Brooke. Nobody really trusted her because they think she ran away to help Kronos or her mom. I think they are all rumors.
I nudge Annabeth and Grover and we get up and walk toward her. Her Blue crystal eyed glare could make a kid cry. I was refraining from whimpering myself. Grover ran up to her and before I could stop him, he hugged her. To my surprise she hugged back. After a few moments of them hugging they departed. We all just started at her awkwardly.
"Hey...Brooke. We need you to maybe possibly come back to camp with us." Annabeth said in kinda a mumble way.
"No." Was all she replied. That's was it, no blowing up in our faces or asking why? Just No?
"Please polka-dot. We need you. Plus it will get your bad rep gone." Grover tried. Maybe she will listen to him.
"Bad Rep?" Oh no is this the blow up where she freezes us and drops us in the Artic ocean. "I have done nothing wrong, all i did was leave."
"That's not what my dad said..." Nico mumbled under his breath, just a little too loud.
I saw Brooke's eyes and it looked like a snow storm in her eyes. This time, I did let out a whimper.I looked at Nico and he paled when her saw her face.
"Your, dad along with all the gods and goddesses and unreliable and allow their kids to die for their own selfish reasons! Son of Hades i though you of all people would understand what it feels like to loose someone and the gods do nothing about it!"
"Gods, who spit in your coffee, maybe you really are with Kronos." Nico mumbled once again, way too loud.
Brooke really lost it then. Her coffee froze and her hair changed from brown to white. "DON'T YOU EVER ACCUSE ME OF BEING WITH THAT MONSTER! YOU WANNA KNOW WHY I LEFT? BECAUSE LUKE GOT ORDERS TO KILL, SO HE KILLED MY ONLY SISTER! HE IS WORKING FOR KRONOS. HE BROKE MY HEART AND ALL MY HAPPINESS. YOU FELT THE SAME DAMN WAY WHEN BIANCA DIED DIDN'T YOU!" She yelled a tear slipping off her cheek and freezing before it even hit the table.
That shut Nico up. "I'm...sorry." Woah did Nico just say sorry?!?
I sat down in Starbucks. My last stop until I leave for Japan. I heard the little door bell ding and in walked in the last people i wanted to see. Grover, Annabeth, i think his name is Percy and some goth kid I have seen in my dreams. Now, saying I have seen him in my dreams sounds stupid but his sister Bianca has been giving these dreams to me. I have no clue why but i just go with it.
I feel the stares baring into my soul and i just mentally prepare my self for this. Okay Brooke, no freezing people today, keep your anger under control. I hear the foot steps of the gang and they stop in front of me.Someone ran up to me and hugged me and I was about to bring out my sword but i realized, i know this sent, pine trees and dirt.Grover.
I quickly hugged back. When I first got to camp he was my only friend, besides Luke,when i found out who my mom was. After a few awkward moments she pulled away.
Here we go, start firing the questions. "Hey...Brooke. We need you to maybe possibly come back to camp with us." Annabeth said in kinda a mumble way. I didn't want to talk to her because last time i did we fought. It was 4 years ago but, when we fought lets just say the Athena kids had to be thawed out of their beds.
"No." I didn't want to talk to any of them, accept maybe Grover.
"Please polka-dot. We need you. Plus it will get your bad rep gone." My eye twitched, that stupid rumor the gods made up to cover Luke being evil and him killing my sister just so the prophecy wan't messed with.
"Bad Rep?" i asked, not wanting to loose it today. "I have done nothing wrong, all i did was leave."
"That's not what my dad said..." Nico mumbled under his breath, i have ears!
I felt my eyes flicker and my hair was getting ready to change.
"Your, dad along with all the gods and goddesses and unreliable and allow their kids to die for their own selfish reasons! Son of Hades i though you of all people would understand what it feels like to loose someone and the gods do nothing about it!" I know i shouldn't have said anything about Bianca but, damn this kid was annoying.
"Gods, who spit in your coffee, maybe you really are with Kronos." Nico mumbled agian. I felt something break in me. That word Kronos is pure evil I dont think I can say it without punching someone. My hair changed and my eyes became fuzzy with the storm in them. Damn, i froze my coffee.
"DON'T YOU EVER ACCUSE ME OF BEING WITH THAT MONSTER! YOU WANNA KNOW WHY I LEFT? BECAUSE LUKE GOT ORDERS TO KILL, SO HE KILLED MY ONLY SISTER! HE IS WORKING FOR KRONOS. HE BROKE MY HEART AND ALL MY HAPPINESS. YOU FELT THE SAME DAMN WAY WHEN BIANCA DIED DIDN'T YOU!" I felt bad about saying Bianca's name in a bad situation but, it sure did shut him up. I didn't even realize i was crying until i heard the clank of frozen tears on the wooden table.
They don't even know the full story of why i ran away... and they feel bad. Then Nico says the last thing i expect. "I'm...sorry." Damn right you are.
I felt really bad about saying what I said. But when she mentioned Bianca i just kinda lost it. How did she even know about Bianca?
Annabeth looked at me and she looked as if she was going to cry, " Please, We- I need you. I know the last time we spoke we fought but, we need your help to win this war."
"Will you come?" Percy asked.
CLIFFHANGER! Muhahaha. I know this chapter sucked ass but Vote anyways? Any whore.. I will update soon, ily!
