I woke up from my blackout with my eyes barely open, but open just enough that I could see. Meghan was at my side and Legacy's hand was on my chest. Everyone else was surrounding them.
"He's alive." Legacy stated.
I tried to ask what had happened, but then I remembered. The spider. Was Meghan alright?
"Meghan." I whispered before my brain slipped back into the stupor from which I came.
"Meghan." I heard Percy whisper.
"Percy, are you okay?"
Still no answer.
"He's going to be fine, Meghan. He just needs to rest." Legacy said.
I nodded and then leaned down to kiss him lightly on the lips. Then I leaned to his ear and whispered,
"Sleep tight Jackson. And I'm going to kill you if you die."
I was kneeling next to Percy waiting for my sister to say, "Awww" but it never came. I got a serious look on my face and stood up, "Where's Destiny?"
Just then we heard a terrible scream.
We all looked to the woods at our left, "Meghan, Legend stay with Percy. Come on Clarisse. Lets go see if that's Destiny." I said as they all nodded. I looked at Clarisse and we both took off running toward the scream.
"There she is!" Clarisse yelled pointing to my sister running stupidly away from her giant spider, "DESTINY OVER HERE!" I yelled waving my arms.
She looked at me with fear in her eyes. Then she got a determined look on her face and pulled out her dagger, "HEY!" she yelled at. I stood there shocked. I was even more shocked when I saw the spider doing the same thing.
"Listen! I need to get back to camp in one piece! But I can't do that with you chasing me!" She said breathing hard and pointing her dagger in the spider's face.
When the spider finally realized what it was doing it hissed and snapped at her with it's pincers.
"FINE! YOU WANNA PLAY IT THIS WAY!?" Destiny yelled as she swung her dagger and swiftly chopped off the hairy beast's pincers.
The spider (which by now I have by now named Mr. Foodles) screamed in pain as it reared back on it's hind legs. Apparently Destiny took advantage of that and with one more quick swing of her dagger she cut open Mr. Foodles's stomach. Mr. Foodles then fell backwards to the ground. We all watched as his furry legs curled like a venus fly trap ready to catch it's pray.
When it twitched, Destiny walked around it to find it's head laying in front of her. She then took her dagger in both hands and brought it down and through Mr. Foodles's head. She the put her back against a tree slowly slid down it until she was sitting and instantly fell asleep.
I felt kinda bad for Mr. Foodles.
I had the worst dream. It was of all the people I love getting killed. Legend, Connor, Legacy, Meghan, Percy, Chiron, and Clarisse. They were all eating dinner together at camp when Apollo came from the sky in his chariot and uses a terrible haiku to kill Clarisse and Meghan (yes his haiku was that terrible). Then Hades pops up from the ground, and summons an army of skeletons to kill Percy. Then Zeus appears in a bolt of lighting and shocks Legacy and Chiron to death. Then all I can do is watch as an entire hoard of giant spiders come and carry off Connor! But the worst of all was when I saw some amazingly powerful being (Kronos) holding Legend by the neck. She was sobbing and kicking. She looked at me with tears in her eyes and she seemed to be trying to tell me something. He the held up his scythe bringing it down to her stomach. But before it hit her I woke up.
I sat up in a cold sweat scaring Legend out of her mind. She was holding a plastic cup which was filled with water until I scared the living daylights out of her, "OH MY GODS!" She yelled panting heavily.. She looked down at her favorite hot pink tank-top...that was now soaked, "Aw man! This was one of the only shirts I brought!" she said setting down the now empty cup.
"You-you're alive! I can't believe it! You're alive!" I cried out happily tackling her in the biggest bear hug I could.
"Last time I checked!" she said laughing, "Why? Did you think I wasn't?"
"It was just a dream." I said grimly. Maybe Percy or Meghan knew what that dream was about.
