Flashback (part two)
“ok, let’s go” we being in the Hermes cabin are with Athena and Ares is on the other team. I am glad I will because I will be able to protect Annabeth. Clarisse knows everything and I mean everything. She thinks that Luke just blames himself but he takes it out on me. I think she’s right.
The plan is for Annabeth, Clarisse, and I to do border patrol and Luke has to defend the flag. Annabeth hides in the brush on our side and Clarisse does the same but on the other side of the creek. I stand in the center of the creek to draw them in. plus the water gives me strength. We have done this a few times before but not with Annabeth so they will all be thinking that at any given moment Clarisse will jump out from our side and attack.
Ten come from the other side and just like I thought, they came right to me. We agreed that Annabeth and Clarisse would wait ten seconds before jumping in. one of them stepped forward and said “I heard you killed a girl and then blamed it on someone else” I was furies, blacked out and the next thing I know they all were lying on the ground out cold. I ask “Clarisse what happed. I blacked out” she didn’t answer me she and Annabeth just stared at me or should I say above me. I looked up to see what they were staring at. What I saw made my heart stop. It was the glowing sign of Poseidon. “Clarisse, Annabeth don’t say a word about this to anyone do you understand me” they nodded their heads. “I’ll tell Chiron in after we win”
Right then about sixteen kids from the other side burst thru the brush and attacked us. In that moment I was knocked out of the water and on to land immanently losing most of my strength. I can’t draw any attention to myself by running to the creek. I get put on my hind end in seconds. I am about to get knocked out when my attacker dropped to the ground with a groan of pain. Where he had once stood was Clarisse. She was glowing red. I lifted my eyes to above her head to see the glowing sign of Ares the god of war. I dropped my sword in shock as Luke ran across the creek with the flag. Luke now dropped the flag. Everyone was standing and staring at her and now it was her tern to ask the questions
“What are you all staring at”
“Clarisse, look up” I said to her. She did and gasped.
Chiron came thru the crowd “the three of you with me” he said pointing to Clarisse, Annabeth, and I.
i know its not that good but it here.
lots of love
happy girl 2020
