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.

6. Chapter 6

**Delia** (Not edited)

It was a lot darker than what I expected it to be, and a lot emptier. Apparently, I was in the cabin longer than just fifteen minutes.

I started to walk around, hoping no one would see me, and that if they did, that they wouldn't mind. No one was outside, and it was so quiet from what it was like earlier.

I walked down towards the beach. When I got there, I sat in the sand and looked at the sky. It was so pretty tonight. Ever since Kasey and I left, every night we would lay down in the grass and look at the sky until we fell asleep. Or until a monster chased us away. Either worked.

Sighing, I said. ''Okay. Um, dad? Or potential mom? If you're listening, could you possibly let me know you are by claiming me? You don't have to, but I don't really like the Hermes cabin. No offense, Hermes. But, still.'' Nothing happened. ''And now I just look like a lunatic talking to the sky.''

''Not too much of a lunatic.''

I jumped. ''Me--''

''Cool it. It's just me.''

Percy came and sat down next to me in the sand.

''So you heard that thing? About the Hermes cabin?''

''Yeah. And the part with your dad.''

''Right.''

''Don't worry though, I talk to my dad all the time.''

''But at least you know who it is. I'm talking to the sky. The sky isn't my father.''

''It's a start. Didn't you say that you liked Zeus?''

''Well, yes.''

''He could be your dad. You seem to like the sky.''

''I guess.''

''Why'd you come out here, anyway?''

''Why did you?'' I asked.

''Because my cabin is right over there and I saw you sitting over here. I didn't know if you were okay or not, so here I am. What about you?''

''I needed air.''

''You know,'' he said. ''it's like, twelve in the morning, way past when were supposed to be inside.''

''Oops. Since I'm already here, I guess I'll stay. You don't have to though. You can go back to your cabin.''

''I think I'll stay.''

I groaned inwardly. So much for alone time.

''Tell me about you.'' He said after a few minutes of silence.

"What's there to know?"

"Let's play twenty questions. What's your favorite color?"

"Teal. What's yours?"

"Blue. What do you like to do?"

"I like reading."

"Anything else?"

"I don't know. I haven't really done anything fun before."

"What do you mean?"

"Uh. Long story?"

He raised an eyebrow. "I've got time."

"I..."

"C'mon. You've had to have fun at least once. You're thirteen."

"Yeah, but my mom, she uh, she never had any money for any fun stuff." I lied.

"Oh. I'm sorry. I should have just left it alone in the first place."

"It's okay." I mumbled.

"Wait. You mean to tell me capture the flag wasn't fun?"

"No, it was. I loved it."

"So you have done something fun. At least one thing."

I nodded. "What do you like to do?"

"Swim." He smiled.

I started to laugh, then realized we weren't supposed to be too loud and covered my mouth. Percy started laughing at my reaction, so I thought it was okay.

"I'm sorry." I sighed.

"You're fine."

We talked for a few more minutes when I got really tired. I let out a yawn and told Percy I was going back to sleep.

"Okay. I'll see you tomorrow. Night."

"Good night." I said.

That night I dreamed I was falling. It was just a black hole of nothingness and I was falling. I had my sword, it was falling with me too.

I reached out for it, and actually grabbed it without hurting myself. Laughter echoed around me.

"Who's there?" I asked.

More laughing.

There was a unpleasantly familiar smell. I knew what was happening. I just didn't want to accept it.

"What do you want?"

"It's time to pay."

I landed on a fluffy surface.

"Pay for what. You're the one who-"

"Shut up, child. It's your fault I'm this way. And this is how I will get you back. You will make new friends, and feel like you finally belong. Everything will seem perfect until the day everything goes wrong. And it will be your fault."

"Well, you're the one doing it, so it would be your fault."

"Don't mock me. You'll regret that. Along with all the other mistakes you've made."

"I didn-"

The furry cushion disintegrated and I started falling again. This time, it was much faster, more scary. It started getting warmer, then hotter. It eventually felt like my whole body was on fire.

I screamed when I opened my eyes. Because of the dream, yes, but also because there were two pairs of blue eyes staring into my soul.

I reached for my bracelet, when one of them told me to calm down.

"We didn't mean to scare you." One said.

"Yeah. It was an accident. What's your name?"

"Uh. It's Delia."

"I'm Travis." The taller one said. "This is my younger brother Connor."

"Only by two minutes though." Connor added.

"Why were you two staring at me?"

"We were deciding on wether or not to wake you up. You looked so peaceful sleeping here and stuff, but it's 12:00." Connor said.

"12:00?"

"Yep."

I sat up and took a look around the cabin. It was completely empty except for Travis, Connor, and I.

"Why didn't you wake me up earlier?"

"Because you looked peaceful." Travis said.

"And because we were going to pull a prank on you."

Travis elbowed Connor. "Actually no we weren't."

"Do you know where I could get new clothes? Or take a shower?"

"Bathrooms are that way. And Piper brought you these."

On the edge sat a orange t-shirt and a pair of shorts.

"If you see her can you tell her I said thanks?" I asked, picking up the clothes.

"Sure."

"Thank you."

A few minutes later Annabeth and I were walking to the Big House. We were on our way to talk with Chiron to see if they figured anything new out about the monsters.

"What do you think it is?" I asked.

"I'm not sure. I just hope it isn't too serious."

"Me, too. I don't want anything bad happening."

"Let look at the bright side, though. We are figuring this out one way or another, so we'll definitely end up knowing if there is a way to fix it."

"And if there isn't?"

"Bright side, Delia. We'll get to the dark side if it's necessary."

Inside, Chiron was studying a book.

"Anything new?" Annabeth asked, walking over to the table.

"Not yet." Chiron sighed. "We're trying our best. Dionysus says that nothing went wrong or got loose. I don't get it."

"Where's Nico?" I asked.

"I'm not sure. Why?"

"He could help us."

"Well I think-"

"I think it's a good idea to have him here to help. After all, he was the one who brought me to the infirmary and practically took care of me while I was in my mini coma. And then he tried to help me understand everything. So, to be fair. Nico should be helping."

"What does that have to do with anything?"

"I just think he should be here."

"If you want to go look for him be my guest." Annabeth sighed. "Try to hurry. We need to talk about this."

I nodded and ran outside. Where would Nico be?
