Crash of Olympus

Delia Nelson is new to Camp Half-Blood. She doesn't understand why no one ever told her "Hey, you're a demigod." if so many people knew about her. And the whole Greek Mythology thing never really intrigued her. But now, she has to adjust to a new life full of it. Especially because her parent is a god or goddess. On top of all that, everyone at camp is freaking out because some "Great Prophecy" seems to be happening right before their eyes. Only the prophecy isn't really that great, and it could involve a lot of deaths. And of course, Delia has something to do with it.

1. Chapter 1

   **Delia**

          I didn't think my life would get any worse. I'd already ran away from my mom, left on the streets to fend for myself, and I'd already betrayed my best friend by leaving her at a rest stop. Believe me, I didn't want to leave her there, that was actually the last thing I wanted to do. But something told me to, a voice in my head or something. I'm not crazy, I don't hear voices in my head. I have a conscious. Okay? Nothing more, nothing less.

But anyway, my conscious told me to leave her, and I did so, because I didn't want to put her in danger. It turns out, the only thing I did was put her in more danger-- you never know what could be inside of those rest stops, or who for that matter-- and my self in more danger.

Nice job, Delia. I thought to my self, pushing a branch out of my way. You've, once again made things ten times harder than they had to be.

I sighed as I kept walking In the dense woods. It was getting dark now, and I was pretty sure that there had to be a place to stay the night, maybe convince them that I'm a lost orphan, and all I needed was one night, but that usually didn't work. I'd been walking for at least five hours now, probably more. My legs were tired, I was thirsty, all I wanted to do was take a nap.

I found a clearing, covered in grass. It would have been very appealing, except for the fact I'm allergic to grass. At this point, I really didn't care, I could deal with a few itchy places on my legs and arms.

That's when everything went more down hill if that was even possible. Bushes rustled, then everything, went silent. When nothing happened, I walked toward it slowly. I outstretched my hand carefully, ready to move the bush back. Before I could something popped out, causing me to jump back.

It didn't look too frightening, just cute. I tilted my head in confusion, then reached out my hand, again. It mirrored my movements, and when our hands touched, I felt soft fingers. It looked at my hand, then back at me. For a few seconds, nothing happened. Then it's eyes rolled back into it's head. The soft fingers grew into sharp nails as it grew twenty times its size.

The monster roared, causing me to scream and stumble back.

"Oh. My. God." I said, getting up slowly.

Once I figured I was out of its sight, I started running, not knowing where I was going. After a few seconds, I heard heavy foot steps behind me, and I knew the thing was back to get me.

I pushed my self to run faster, dodging trees in my path. The foot steps stopped, and I dared look back. The next thing I knew, there was a large rock flying towards me. I screamed, moving out of the way just before it...exploded?

Dodge, run, jump, move, run. I was sort of getting the hang of this now. Except for tripping on the occasional root, I was doing pretty well. It was night time, now, so it was really hard to see. I could only see when the monster behind me threw something and it exploded.

I didn't know where I was going or when I would get there- if there was a place- but I kept moving, knowing that if I stopped to look around, I would be monster chow.

I heard the thing yell, and roots getting torn out of the ground. The next thing I knew, there was a tree right in front of me. The only thing I knew to do was scream and go over it.

My feet touched the ground and I started sprinting again. Not even a second later, the tree exploded. I went flying, not seeing anything at all. I eventually landed against a tree, and it hurt to move. There was no way I was going to stop running though.

Something else exploded, and I saw a very tall tree. Something told me to go towards it, that I would be safe once I got there. I struggled to my feet and took off up the tall hill.

My legs ached, and all I wanted to do was lie down and take a nice long nap. But if I did that, my nap would be for eternity, not just for two hours.

Eventually I reached the top of the hill. There was a sign that read something near it, shaped like an arch or something. I had no time to read it, just to run through it.

You can rest now, you're safe'

My vision went fuzzy, and I collapsed. The last thing I heard was foot steps coming toward me. Then, every thing went black.
