10. Yellow and Blue
It was about 2 in the morning and I was walking around. It was my cabin’s patrol so I was out. I held my sword in front of me, and walked around the perimeter.
Suddenly, a bright flash went up into the sky. It was all yellowish and blue.
Oh gods, this cannot be good.
I was laying in bed thinking I couldn’t sleep. I was thinking about my new life it was extremely different now. I was son of Athena the goddess of wisdom.
Suddenly, the sky lit up in a color of yellow and blue.
Zeus and Poesidon? I sat up, rolling out of bed and grabbed my knives.
Better head to the big house.
I sighed, and continued to pace the floor. I couldn’t sleep. I had a bad feeling something bad was going to happen.
Suddenly, a yellow blue light filled the sky.
You stole my lightning bolt, a loud, firm voice filled my head and I could automatically tell it was not my father.
I grabbed my sword, and ran for the big house.
I sighed, staring up at the big statue of my father.
Why doesn’t he talk to me? All the other boys have gotten a some sort of sign from their parent. Niall got a sword, Harry got a rose that can release poison, Zayn got some special arrows, and Liam got a dagger. Why nothing for me? Am I that bad of a kid?
No my child. I heard a strong, steady voice rumble through my head. You are a great son, and I am proud to call you that. But beware the son of Poseidon, Niall. He has stolen the most powerful weapon in the universe.
I shook my head. Niall didn’t steal. Well, stealing food was a different story but other than that……
Suddenly, a yellow blue flare rose up through the camp. I stood up, grabbing my sword, and ran towards the big house.
I sighed, flipping through a book I found on my bunk. Every page somehow reminded me of Harry and Luke.
Gods Giselle you are not falling for him!
Suddenly, I felt someone tap my shoulder. I jumped up and fell off the bed.
I heard someone hold in a laugh behind me. I looked up to see Zayn grinning at me.
“Gods Zayn don’t do that!” I whispered yelled
“You need to work on guarding your backside.” Zayn said doing a bad impression of me
“Oh shut up.”
“So, what are you thinking about?” Zayn asked
“I can tell when you’re lying.”
“No you can’t.” I protested
“Yes I can. You do this thing where you scrunch up your nose and blink two times.”
“Oh.” I said
He laughed and suddenly, his eyes grew wide.
I turned and saw a yellow blue flash across the sky.
“What are the gods up to now?” Zayn asked
“I don’t know, but it may be important.”
I got up, put my quiver on and took my bow. Zayn did the same, and we both ran towards the big house.
I was outside the Ares cabin looking up at the stars. I was still considered a newbie since I came in after everyone left for Rome. Giselle was the first person who watched over me when I got here.
I did notice from time to time she would go into the forest for hours at a day. She also had a sword of celestial bronze and steel.
When I asked her about it she said it was very special but she hardly ever used it.
I looked up and the sky and saw it light up blue and yellow. I got up and ran towards the big house with my scythe. Something was wrong very wrong.
