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.

2. Chapter 2

**Delia**

I sat up quickly, taking a deep breath. I looked around. There were people laying down on cots, being tended to by other kids younger, and older than me.

To my right stood a boy with his back facing me. He had black hair, and was wearing dark clothes, which made me feel a little intimidated, but I shook it off.

"Excuse me?" I said sweetly to the boy.

I watched him jump and his hands struggled with what he was holding. He dropped it, spilling pens and coffee everywhere.

"I'm so sorry." I said. I started to help him, but he just sat me back on the bed.

"I got it." He mumbled.

He left before I got a glimpse of his face. When he was gone, I picked up the pens and set the coffee cup back on the table. He came back in, seeing me fumbling with some tissues trying to clean up the mess.

"I said I got it." He said.

I looked up at him. He had dark brown eyes, so dark, they almost looked black. I could see faint smile lines around his eyes, but barely, because there were dark circles around them. His eyes were blood shot, and I immediately knew why I felt intimidated earlier, even though he was my age.

"Um...I'm sorry. I just felt bad and..." I looked at his hands. There were paper towels in them. I took a few from him and placed them on the floor.

He looked at me weirdly, as I stared at the mess of paper towels on the floor.

"Sorry." I whispered.

He smiled slightly, then told me to sit. I did so, but not before making sure I got up all of the coffee.

"Stay here, and don't start cleaning the windows or anything." He said.

I looked back at the windows. They looked clean enough.

A few seconds later, the boy was back with a new person. She was pretty and had blonde hair pulled back into a pony tail. Her eyes were a stormy gray color.

"Hi! I'm glad you're awake. I'm Annabeth."

"Delia."

"Do you remember anything that happened the other day?"

"Um, I remember leaving Kasey at a rest stop and having a really weird dream."

"What was you're dream about?"

"I was about to take a nap, then a bunny of some sort came out from a bush. Then it tried to eat me."

"That wasn't a dream...."

"What?" I asked.

"Nico saw it. He saw the monster chase you in here and then you fell. He tried to wake you up but you were unconscious."

"Wait, what?"

"What kind of monster do you think it was?" The boy I was assuming was Nico asked.

Annabeth frowned. "I don't know, I've never heard of an evil bunny before. Maybe it's a new kind."

"Maybe. We'll have to ask Chiron."

"Who?" I questioned.

"Should we bring her with us? She'll have to meet him sometime."

"Yeah, I guess now would be a good time for her to find out."

"Find out about what?"

Annabeth looked at me apologetically. "Sorry, I know you're probably really confused right now."

"Just a little." I said sarcastically.

"Well, do you have any questions?" She asked me.

"Yeah. First off, where am I and why and why am I here?Second, who is Chiron? What is this monster talk, why are you both acting weird? When can I leave? Also, is there any food nearby?"

The last question was an accident.

"You're at Camp Half-Blood. A camp for demigods."

"Demi-what?"

" Chiron is our camp director. We aren't sure about the monster yet. We aren't acting weird. You can't leave--"

"What?"

"And we're having lunch in an hour. Do you know who your godly parent is?" Annabeth asked.

"My godly what? I don't know my dad, and my mom is a total jerk."

"Is your mom your real mom?"

"I'm pretty sure. I wouldn't be surprised if she bought me off of eBay or something."

Annabeth sighed. "Ok. Well, let's go see Chiron, and we'll see what we can do to make things clearer to you."

I looked at Nico. He simply shrugged and walked out a door.

"He's no help." Annabeth said. "Are you feeling okay enough to walk."

"Sure."

"Ok, let's go meet Chiron.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At a table sat a man in a wheelchair. He was deep in conversation with a heavy set man.

"Maybe we could let them have a game of Capture the Flag tonight. Give the little brats something to do." The fat guy said.

"Excuse me," Annabeth cleared her throat. "I don't mean to interrupt, but, Chiron, she woke up."

"Oh, good!" The man in the wheelchair wheeled over to us. "I'm Chiron, and you are?"

"Delia. It's nice to meet you."

"You, too, my dear."

"Annabell, don't you know it is rude to interrupt adults?"

"Isn't your name Annabeth?" I asked her.

Annabeth nodded. "Mr. D doesn't care enough to learn our names."

"Oh, yes I do!" The fat--Mr. D protested. "You, with the brown hair. What's your name?"

"Delia."

"See, now I know Dana's name."

"Delia." I corrected.

"Yeah, yeah." He waved his hand as if dismissing the conversation completely. "Anyways, Annie. What do you want?"

"Chiron, when Delia woke up, she told us what happened. The monster Nico saw chase her into the camp was a cute little bunny and then it just changed into a monster. Have you heard of something like this before?"

Chiron was quiet for a few seconds, thinking hard. "No." He said at last. "I can't say that I have. How did the rabbit transform?"

"It touched my hand with its paw, then looked at me. After that, it's eyes turned white, like, his whole eye was white, then grew twenty times it's size. Then it started chasing me."

"Anything else?"

"It threw things at me, and when they landed, they exploded."

"Oh. Maybe it's a new type of monster. We will send a message to the gods to ask if something happened to get loose or go wrong. Until then, I wouldn't worry. We're safe inside the barriers of the camp."

"About all of that." I said, trying not to sound rude. "What do you guys mean when you ask who my godly parent is? My mom is anything but godly, I don't know my dad because he left when I was a month old- according to my mentally unstable mother. So he doesn't sound to great either. Annabeth said I couldn't go home, and I much as I hate my mom, I kind of want to. Why can't I?"

Chiron gave me a sympathetic look. "Demigods are children of the Greek and Roman gods. You are one of many. When we ask you who your godly parent is, we mean who is your Greek god parent. Now it could be any. It could be Ares, Aphrodite, Athena, Apollo, Nemesis, Hecate, Hades, and many more."

"I could have more than one?"

"What Chiron means is, your parent could be any of those listed, or ones who aren't, like Zeus, Poseidon--"

"You are forgetting about the most important god." Mr. D spoke up. "I could be your father." He looked at me disgusted. "I seriously doubt that something as foul as you would be a child of mine, but I guess you could be."

"You're a god?"

He looked offended. "Yes, I am!"

I took in his appearance once more then directed my attention to Annabeth and Chiron.

"You were saying?" I asked Annabeth.

"There are many gods and goddesses and one of them is your parent."

"Oh," I mumbled weakly.

"Don't worry, most of us live. And your safe here." Annabeth assured me.

To be honest the word most, made it less assuring. But I'm safe here...I thought.

"Annabeth, would you mind showing her around camp?"

"No, it's fine."

She took me outside then said in an excited voice, "there is someone I want you to meet."
