October in February
“What are you joking…. no you can’t b….” right then it hit me it all started to come back to me but I didn’t have time to even finish this thou…. our math teacher MRS.ODDS came in and called the three of us in to her office. I had to stop thinking to fallow her in to her office. As we walked my mind kept wondering back to the memory's that I never knew I had. When we got to her office, she shut the door and told us to sit down. We did as we were told.
“Now you have been keeping secrets from me and I don’t like it at all”
she seemed to snarl at us “where is it, tell me and you won’t get hurt” Clarisse jumped up
-sorry I’m getting a head of myself the girl that I thought I knew, you know Lucinda, well I remembered her, her name is Clarisse la rue and she is a half blood. Just like me. Yeah I said I half-blood as in demi-god you know half god-half human, my mom is a mortal and my dad is a god but I can’t tell you who just yet because I don’t remember yet.-
Clarisse jumped up “what kind of games are you trying to play” I saw her reaching for her pocket and I was getting closer to my p
“Games, I’m not the one playing games, you are. NOW where is it” the three of us looked at each other, I had been out of it for so long I had no idea what she was talking about, but it was obvious that Clarisse did.
“We told you that we don’t have it” “I was not talking to you war brat, I was talking to the sea brats. I’m losing my cool, where is it tell me NOW”
I felt like Percy was being targeted so I spoke up “if you would tell me what you are looking for, I might be able to help you”
“You know what I am talking about, half-blood”
it hit me right then who she was, “no October, I don’t my dad took my memory and sent me to this shit hole to and I quote ‘to get your brother to camp as safely as possible’ my brother being him” I said pointing to Percy, then I said “ he took my memory so I could get him without raising any problems and I didn’t get them back until I found out Percy’s last name, then they all started to come back and I didn’t have all of them back until just now”
“My name is not October” I almost laughed
“Whatever like I care”
Percy who has been so silent spoke up “what are you all talking about and what is going on I don’t understand what is happening”
-I’m just going to call her octave- “lies” came hissing out of her mouth. She stood up and started to change. I reached up and unclipped my hair pin. It grew in to a three foot long bronze Greek sword, I looked at Clarisse she already had her spear out, and Percy backed up as far as he could get away from us. Octave let out a screech to call her sisters but before she could finish her screech Clarisse stabbed her with her spear and she was vaporized to dust.
I know that the others would be along soon so I said “ we really need to go”
we were about to run out the door but Percy said “no I am not going anywhere with you.”
lots of love
