Son of Poseidon

My name is Ashton. Ashton Irwin. I'm Son of Poseidon, Lord of the sea, and my life is anything, but ordinary.....


24. The End of Grace Smith

Nicos POV


Grace and I had just finished our movie. We had a great time even though I wasn't supposed to actually enjoy it. I really did miss her and wanted things to go back to the way they were, but Kronos would kill me if he knew I thought that. Kronos is the leader of the Titans, and he rules over me.


"Nico" boomed Kronos.


"Y-yes my Lord" I said as I knelt in front of him.


"I have received word that the Son of Poseidon, Son of Zeus, and your new brother Calum have set out on their little quest with other demigods. Is the trap set for them yet?"


"Yes my Lord"


"Good. What about Grace. Does she believe that you really love her again?"


"umm- I-I believe so."


"You better make her believe it by tomorrow night, so she can be part of our plan. Make her loyal to you, but let her do it willingly. Now, go. I have to watch for the other Princes."


"Yes my Lord" I stood up and bowed. If he finds out that I really love her, he'll kill me. I hate to do this to her, but it's necessary. Or at least until I became King. If I even lived long enough to become king.



Graces POV


Nico had just left and I had the best time ever. It felt like we just started dating. He seemed to actually care about me, and surprisingly, I think he loves me. I was lost in thought when I heard a deep voice call Nicos name. I couldn't hear their conversation from where I was standing so I walked to the other side of my room and put my ear against the wall to hear them. I heard the big guy say to Nico,


"I have received word that the Son of Poseidon, Son of Zeus, and your new brother Calum have set out on their little quest with other demigods. Is the trap set for them yet?"



"Yes my Lord" he replied.



"Good. What about Grace. Does she believe that you really love her again?" my breath hitched when I heard him ask that question.


"umm- I-I believe so." My eyes started to form tears, but I couldn't hold them in any longer. The hot tears just came streaming down my face.



"You better make her believe it by tomorrow night, so she can be part of our plan. Make her loyal to you, but let her do it willingly. Now, go. I have to watch for the other Princes." I couldn't bear to listen to it any longer. I thought he loved me again. I was very wrong. I thought he changed. I can never trust Nico ever again.

I layed down on my bed face first and cried into my pillow. Negative thoughts kept running through my  mind. He doesn't love you. He never did, and never will. You are worthless. You don't deserve him. He had every right to abuse you for being such and awful girlfriend. He is like this because of you. You should kill yourself. It would benefit everyone. I couldn't take it anymore. I shakily stood up, and slowly walked to my bathroom. When I got there, I picked up the dagger that Nico had left and looked at it. It was made of imperial gold, the only metal that could kill a demigod. It seemed to be whispering to me, Do it. Do it. I held it infront of of my chest. Then someone walked into my room, and their stood Nico with a horrified look.


"Grace!! What are you doing?!" Nico asked worried.


"You don't love me. It was all a lie. I thought you loved me. You are what you are because of me. Everyone is better off without me. All I do is cause problems."


"I do love you!!" He yelled with tears in his eyes.


"If you did, why did Kronos say that?" I said in a trance. His face showed a hurt expression full of regret.


"I'm sorry. But I really do love you, Grace. You are the only girl I've ever actually loved. Don't do it. Please." He whispered the last part. The tears were streaming down his face. Then I remembered what I had promised myself earlier. I will never trust him again.


"I'm sorry Nico. No one can love me. Not even you." I replied as I held the dagger tighter getting ready to end it all.


He lunged for the dagger before I could do it, but he was too late. I closed my eyes and stuck it in my stomach. I fell to the ground. The pain was unbearable. Blood was spilling every where. I heard Nico scream and he rushed to me. He picked me up and put me on the bed. He took out the dagger and tossed it across the room.


"Oh Grace. Baby. You don't know what I am feeling right now. I fell like my heart has just been shattered into a million pieces. I love you more than myself. I love you more than my parents. I love you more than the world. You are so much more important to me than becoming king. Fuck Kronos. I don't care if he knows I love you. He can kill me and I will be fine with it knowing that my last words were me admitting that I love you. I can't spend my life without you. Don't leave me. Please. I love you so much." Nico was full out sobbing as he was trying stop the bleeding and save me. I felt the life draining out of me. I put my hand on his cheek, making him look at me.


"Nico it's my time. You can't change what the Fates are doing. I'm sorry I didn't believe you. I just couldn't handle the thought of you not loving me."


"Don't apologize. I'm sorry I lead you to believe the wrong thing. I really do love you. I always will. Nothing can change that." His eyes were red and he was putting pressure on the wound I had created.


"Nico. I need to ask you a favor."


"What? anything."


"I want you to kiss me until I pass. I want the last thing I do to be expressing my love for you. And my last words are: Nico, I love you."


"He looked me in the eyes.


"I love you, Grace." He bent down to kiss me. It was gentle but the most passionate kiss I had ever had. I felt his tears falling onto my cheeks as his lips never separated from mine. I took my last breath. And the life had slipped away from me.
