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.

15. Chapter 15

**Delia**

"What was that?" I jumped, and reached for my bracelet.

"I don't know." Percy said.

"Do we even know where we are going?"

"To find some monsters."

"Can we go back now?"

"Alright. So. The noise is probably a monster, do we hide, or fight back?"

Percy pressed his forehead. "Leo, you've been on a quest before. You know how to act."

"Yeah, but both of those times, I had a method of transportation. Either Festus, or the Argo ll, both of which got destroyed."

"Do we have anyway of traveling now?" I asked.

"We have our feet."

I groaned inwardly. "Well let's get moving."

Another screech.

"Metamorphoó."

Percy uncapped his pen, and it turned into a full length sword. Leo dug around in his tool belt and brought out a wrench.

I grinned, but luckily, the boys were too busy looking for the source to notice. We were almost a decent team.

My feet were planted firmly on the ground, and I held my sword in the ready position. Instantly, I regretted leaving this early. We wouldn't of had to deal with this if we left Friday.

"I think it's--"

There it was again, the screech.

Percy looked back at me as if checking to make sure I was still there. "It's fine."

I know it's fine.

"Standing here isn't going to do anything. C'mon." I pushed my bag further up on my shoulder.

I wasn't going to be that little girl who needs her big brother to protect her. This was MY quest, and I needed to show them that even though I was new, I could do this, and I wasn't afraid. Even though I was actually mortified.

Everything was silent. It sort of reminded me of the Hunger Games when Peeta and Katniss were walking and the dogs jumped out at them. I prayed to the gods that nothing like that would happen. Unfortunately, they must've not accepted my prayers.

The first thing that happened was a brown blur came rushing by, causing me to drop my backpack and get my weapon ready.

Second, it came back, jumping on top of Percy. He tried using Riptide to defend himself but, it was no use. I took my sword and stabbed the monster in the back, making it turn to dust.

My eyes widened as I helped Percy up. He was covered in little particles of what looked to be glitter.

"Thanks." He said.

"Where'd it go?"

"Tartarus."

I nodded, remembering a few of the brief lessons I learned in third grade.

Everything else was hazy. I do remember a few more of those things popping up, and a few had what seemed to be antlers. I remember flashes of bright orange and a few choice words from Leo's mouth. Also, I remember the sharp pains when they trampled me with their hooves.

We managed to fight them all off, but it resulted in a lot of injuries. Luckily, we brought enough nectar to cover it, and had some left over.

"If this is what we're up against," Leo said. "We're going to need way more ambrosia."

"Are you sure you want to do this, Delia?"

"Positive." I rubbed my arm. "Absolutely positive."

"Are you okay?" Leo asked.

"Fine. Just, one of those deer things kicked my arm. It'll be fine. I ate some ambrosia."

"Were those the monsters? Are those what were supposed to be looking at?"

I nodded. "Yeah."

"Then, aren't we in for a painful adventure?"

"Sure are. Look, we need to get going." Said Percy. "It would be great if we could actually go a few miles away from the camp before sundown. And I don't want another one of those things coming around and hurting you. We need to find shelter before nightfall, and--oh gods, I sound like Annabeth. We just need to find somewhere to sleep tonight."

"But it's like," I looked up. "11:30-ish. We have a while."

"And we use this time to move."

We gathered our stuff and started moving down the hill. Leo smiled at me assuringly.

"You okay?" He asked.

"I already told you, I'm fine. Just a little bruised up."

"No, I mean...you seem worried."

"I am."

"It's okay, though. You shouldn't be. Me, you, and Percy? We got this. And we'll figure out what in Hades is going on and we'll make it wish it never happened."

I smiled, although I didn't exactly know what he was trying to say. "Thanks, Curly."

Percy cleared his throat. "Are you two hungry?"

"A little."

"We need to find some food. I think there's a restaurant a few miles out."

"Sounds good."

After about thirty minutes of walking, we came to a McDonald's. No one payed any attention to us, except for when we first walked in. Once we ordered our food, we sat and discussed our plan.

"So we know now it's 12:07. Sun goes down at about 8:30 ish. So we have about eight hours. To watch them."

"The ones from before looked like they were deer at one point, so obviously it wasn't just bunnies."

"And it wasn't a baby, either. So any animal can turn into one of those things."

I sighed and sipped my tea. "So, this quest? We're just going around observing things? When do we know when to go back? Isn't there a time?"

"We actually don't have a certain time to be back now. Kind of figured no more than a week tops. Unless we do end up getting a deadline."

"Do we need to tell everyone else what we found out?"

"We'll iris message them after we eat. Do either of you happen to have actual money?"

"I have about a hundred." I said.

"Ten." Added Leo.

Percy held out his hand and I reluctantly handed over thirty dollars.

"Thanks, princess."

I rolled my eyes. "Shut up, Percy."

He smiled and went to get us some snacks from across the street.

I picked up another French fry and observed it. Boredom sucks.

"How long do you think this'll take?" I asked.

"I dunno. Few days?"

"What do you do for fun on quests?"

"We don't usually have time for fun, honestly."

"So...this is just sitting behind bushes waiting for a monster?"

"Pretty much."

"Joy."

"I'm sure we can find something entertaining."

"I really hope so. I don't think I can just sit there watching all day."

Just then, a strange couple walked in. As soon as they did, Leo and I glanced up. Leo quickly started gathering our things.

"Keep your head down."

"What? Why?"

"Those are bad news." He threw away my fries.

"What are they?"

"Medusa's sisters."

"Woah, wait. As in THE Medusa?"

He nodded. "They kinda hate demigods."

"Great."

We slipped outside and ran across the street to find Percy. Luckily, he was standing at the check out.

"Percy, it's time to go." Leo said, pulling his arm.

"Wait, I have to buy--"

"Gorgons."

That seemed to get Percy's attention. He shoved the money on the counter and took the things he was going to buy.

"Keep the change." He screamed, as he pulled me along.
