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.

10. Chapter 10

**Delia**

Percy was already at the Big House when I got there.

"You, uh, wanted to see me?" I asked.

"Yes." Chiron sighed. "Please, take a seat."

I awkwardly sat next to Percy.

"First off I want to know why you two were out so late last night."

Percy glanced towards me. "Uh."

"I needed fresh air, so I went to the beach."

"Alright. And you Percy?"

"I saw something glowing so I went over there."

"You two should know that it's very dangerous to go out that late. You especially, Percy."

"I'm sorry." He said.

Chiron looked at me. "I assume you already know what this is about?"

"Sort of. If you mean the thing about my dad."

"I've already told her." Said Percy

"You haven't said anything to anyone, right?"

"I told Leo that we found something out that could help us on the quest. Which wasn't exactly a lie."

"But you didn't tell him about your father?"

"No. But why can't I tell anyone?"

"We're going to wait until we talked to you about it before we told everyone else."

"What's there to talk about?"

"There used to be a really big rule about the gods of the big three having kids." Percy said. "We're too powerful or something. We got the law fixed about a year ago, and now it's okay, they can have as many kids as they want. But obviously, Poseidon broke that rule more than once."

"So I'm practically illegal?"

"Not anymore."

"But I was?"

"Sort of."

"That's a nice thought." I nodded.

"So tomorrow we'll move you into the Poseidon cabin, and we'll continue on like usual. Training will still go on until next Friday."

"Actually Chiron." I said with as much politeness as I could manage, "could we move the date up a little bit? I'm afraid I'll be to scared to do it if we push it out that far."

He frowned a little and I knew I shouldn't have asked.

"Delia is doing great with her training." Percy cut in.

"Please Chiron. I really don't want to do this quest, I'm not going to lie. And I'm already terrified. What if waiting a week is going to make me too scared?"

After a few seconds of hesitation, he said, "I suppose you can leave on Monday."

"Great." Percy said for me.

I wasn't expecting him to move it up five days. I was thinking more two or three, but I guess I can't complain.

"Yeah, thank you. Thanks."

"When will we announce the quest?"

"Tomorrow once we tell everyone she's a child of Poseidon."

I nodded. "Alright. One more night in the Hermes cabin."

Chiron tilted his head in confusion.

"She doesn't like it in the Hermes cabin." Explained Percy.

"Why?"

"Don't worry about it. I'm going to talk to Nico, if you two don't mind."

"Okay. Inside by curfew." Percy said.

"Yeah, yeah. Whatever."

Nico was out side on a bench. Once he saw me he got up.

"You waited for me?" I asked.

"Sort of. I have a question."

"I may have an answer."

"At dinner, when you left, you turned around like you were expecting to see someone. Then you looked really confused when no one was there. Why? No one said anything, no one touched you. I'm sorry if I'm sounding crazy but-"

"No. I heard Leo ask me where I was going, and I felt his hand on my wrist. It stopped me. And honest to gods it was a real hand. At least it felt like it."

He looked at me like I was some sort of freak.

"You need to tell Chiron."

"No. I don't want to talk about that for twenty thousand hours. I'm exhausted."

"Oh."

"Right! Before I forget. I need to tell you something."

"What?"

"I can't tell you here." I mumbled. "But it's that thing I wasn't supposed to talk about."

"Oh. Are you allowed to talk about it now?"

"They didn't exactly said I could, but they didn't say I couldn't either."

He smiled a little. "Okay."

"Do you know anywhere where no one would be or would follow us?"

Nico thought for a moment. "My cabin."

"Am I allowed to go in there?" I frowned.

"Not sure."

A few minutes later I was sitting on Nico's bed trying to figure out how to word what I was going to tell him.

"Any time you're ready." He said again.

"I know. Okay. I know who my godly parent is."

"Who?"

How was is supposed to say this? Was I just supposed to say "Poseidon." Or was I supposed to try and demonstrate my powers. Do I even have powers? That would be cool. I mean, I am a demigod, and I'm pretty sure everyone knows I'm not normal. At least, I know.

But what kind of powers would a daughter of Poseidon have? Could I breathe under water? Could I control water? Could I turn things into water? Could I turn into water?

"Delia?"

"Huh?"

"Who's your parent?"

I've decided against demonstrating. I may not even have powers.

"It's Poseidon."

Nico was quiet for a few seconds. His face went paler than it was before. "Poseidon?"

"Is that a bad thing?"

"Um...no. It's just you're a kid of the Big Three."

"Yeah."

"How did you survive if you were...what?"

"What are you talking about?"

"The monsters would've killed you unless...was Kasey a demigod too?"

"I don't know. Maybe?"

"Is there a way you could ask her?"

"I'm not sure were on soeaking terms. Last time we talked I locked her in a rest stop bathroom."

"Why?"

"Someone told me to."

"Was it like that other voice? The one that sounded like Leo?"

"I guess. I've always thought it was a conscious or something. But maybe not."

"Did it sound like Leo?"

"No."

"Anyone you know?"

"Nope."

We sat in silence. Finally, Nico said, "it's almost curfew. You should go."

"Yeah. Good night."

"Good night."
