Sea Princess

Chapter 17

I was sitting on the couch doing some homework. It was already December and it was close to winter break and Christmas. It was going to be nice to be at an actual home for Christmas instead of being at camp in the cold winter. I heard Percy doing something in his room and it sounded like he was throwing shit around. His mom wasn't home so that meant I was in charge of making sure he wasn't killing himself in his room.

"What are you doing?" I asked as I put my binder down and went to Percy's room. I saw him with stuff all over the place and I raised my eyebrows at him. He smiled at me and stood up.

"I was looking for my drachmas." He said. I rolled my eyes.

"That's why you put them all in one place bro." I laughed. He just came over to me and glanced down at me and smiled.

"How did you end up so tiny?" He asked as he passed me. I stuck my tongue out at him and went back to the couch in the living room.

"Well, I don't exactly know since I know the god's DNA is forefront in the process." I murmured. He laughed and then sat down in the chair as he turned on the TV and started to flip through the channels. I sighed and punched a number into my calculator and Percy glanced over at me.

"What are you doing?" He asked.

"Homework, its Algebra 2 and Trig." I murmured. He nodded and turned the TV down a little and I smiled. Then we heard a growl and the first thing I did was go for my necklace around my neck. Percy laughed and gave me a sheepish grin.

"Sorry that was my stomach." He said. I laughed.

"Alright then since you're hungry I'll make something to eat." I said. I got up again after setting my binder down on the couch and headed to the kitchen. I looked through the fridge and I noticed some hamburger that was thawing out and I smiled. I found some noodles, some ricotta, bay-leaves, and some pasta sauce. I got out a big pot and frying pan.

"Hope you like lasagna." I called.

"You can make lasagna?" He asked.

"Yeah, I and my mom used to make it all the time." I said. He chuckled and smiled.

"Need any help?" He asked.

"You can cook the hamburger for me," I said. He nodded and walked into the kitchen and dumped the hamburger in to the pan and started the fire underneath it. I smirked.

"Watch this Percy." I laughed. Percy turned around and I raised my hand so that it was at the sink facet. I closed my hand slowly into a fist and the facet started to shake. Then water streamed out of it and I moved my hand so that it was in a line straight for the pot. Once it was full enough I twisted my wrist with a flick and then the facet shut off and I smiled.

"By any chance did you flood the girls’ bathroom on the second floor?" He asked.

"Maybe," I giggled. He shook his head and smiled as he stirred the hamburger around in the pan. I dropped the noodles in once the water started to boil and I smirked.

"Can I ask you something?" Percy asked.

"Hm?" I asked looking over at him.

"How did your mom die?" He asked. I bit my lip and stared down into the pot of water and noodles and Percy was staring at me from beside me.

"Well I was like 6 or 7. I think I was 6. We were coming back from something down state or in New Jersey or something. My mom had to stop by the corporation to check on a new car design they wanted to show her and we were stuck in traffic. It sucked because it was late at night. I wanted to go home and sleep." I said as I started to look for a drainer so I could drain the pasta into.

"And we got stopped in Time Square or near there. It was only about 10 or 11 blocks away from the building that we were going to. We heard the ground shaking and my mom wasn't sure what was going on because we didn't earthquakes in New York and if we do it's rare. Like extremely rare. But my mom glanced into the rear-view mirror and saw something she didn't like. She got out of the car and got me out of the backseat and started running down the seat." I said. Then that's when I grabbed the handles on the pot and carried it over to the sink and drained it out. I waited for a few moments before I put the noodles back into the pot. I got a glass pan out of one of the cupboards.

I set the glass pan on the table and then I looked at the hamburger and realized it was all cooked. I mixed together the ricotta and laid down the noodles before putting the hamburger on them and then the ricotta cheese and then I just repeated that and once I got it finished I put the pasta sauce on top and spread it around and set the oven.

"Well when she was running down the street I looked up to see this huge thing following us. He was laughed as he took a step. It was an um...Cyclops. He followed us down the road a whole lot of people were screaming and running but it was weird because he kept just trying to get me." I said as the oven beeped. I put the pan in and then walked into the living room and sat down. Percy sat down in the chair he had been in earlier and stared at me.

"Well when my mom got the chance she ducked into an alley and put me in this huge ass box and told me not to leave. She ran out of the alley and then down the street. I didn't understand why she had put me in the box and when I glanced at of the side of it I saw the Cyclops run past the open alley way. I understand why because of the garbage hiding my smell. But then the Cyclops picked up a car and decided I'm going to throw it. So it did. It threw the car and I heard the screams." I murmured as I picked at my nails. I had told this story so much before it didn't really affect me as much as it used to.

"Well then when I peeked out of the alley way I saw my mom underneath the car. She was still alive sadly and she was struggling to get away. I ran up to her and tried to pull her out. I didn't know that she was going to die. She told me to run as the Cyclops got closer. I remember he said 'a daughter of the sea can't wait to see what she tastes like'. It was sickening. My mother called out 'do something for a change and save your daughter!'. I didn't understand what she was talking about." I sighed.

"Then after my mom said that she died. I didn't know. I was still screaming and then out of no on where a man appeared behind me. I just stared at him and he smiled at me and then the Cyclops disappeared into the gold dust monsters disappear into. I was still crying and screaming my head off when the cops showed up. About a few weeks later I was put into a foster home and I hated it there so I ran away. That's when I ran into Thalia, Luke, and Annabeth." I said.

"Wow that's..." He said. I nodded.

"Yeah it sucks." I said.

"Why do you get so mad at Dad about it then?" He asked. I glared at the floor.

"Because he didn't save her." I said.

"Cassi maybe-" Percy murmured.

"No he didn't save my mother! A woman at one time he fell in love with enough to have a child with. He didn't save her cause I really think that he didn't care enough!" I snapped. That's when a flash of light filled the room and Percy and I had to cover our faces to keep us from getting blinded it was that bright.

"What the fuck?" I asked. I glanced at where it came from once the light faded.

"Hello Cassi," He said. I stared at the man standing in the middle of the living room with a wide eyes and an open mouth. There was dad. He was just staring at me.

"Hey dad," Percy said.

"Hello Percy." He smiled. I leaned back into the couch with my arms across my chest staring at him.

"You have decided to grace us with your presence. How graceful of you," I sneered.

"Cassi," Percy murmured.

"It's alright Percy." Dad said. Percy looked at me and then at dad.

"So what did you come for?" I asked.

"To give you your birthday present." He said.

"Hm, 5 months a little late. Don't you think?" I asked. He sighed.

"You're just like your mother." He said. My eyes narrowed even further if that was possible.

"Don't you dare mention her to me. You shouldn't even speak of her!" I said.

"Cassi I heard what you said-" He said.

"So you finally wanna admit that it's true? That you let the women you love die? Or do you wanna admit you didn't love her enough to save her? Take your pick I'll be hitting you regardless." I said as I cracked my knuckles.

"I did love your mother. How can you possibly even think that I didn't?" He asked.

"Cause you left." I said simply as I stared at him.

"Because like what happened when Percy was born I was spending too much time here in the mortal world. I was becoming human. Zeus didn't like it and forbid me to go and visit you and your mother. He kept a very close eye on me for a year or two and he finally backed off." He said. I rolled my eyes.

"Well if I wasn't afraid to fry by lightning I would like to have a very choice of words with Zeus." I snapped. I sighed and glared at the ground.

"After Zeus stopped watching me, I started to watch after you." He said.

"Lies," I sang.

"I'm not lying," He said calmly. I didn't understand how he was staying so calm. If I had a teenage daughter mouthing off to me right now I'd be grounding her for an eternity and a half. Note to self don't have kids...or don't have kids with gods. That's a lesson to.

"Prove it," I said. He pulled out a wallet in his jeans and pulled out a picture. He walked over to me and stood in front of me holding it out for me to see it. My mouth dropped and I studied the picture. It was of me back when I was 5 in my preschool play. I was an angel and singing.

"You stole that from the penthouse probably!" I snapped.

"You sang wonderfully that night. I was so proud of you," He said.

"Stop acting like you were there!" I said.

"I was the man with the suit on standing by your mother before you went on. You were faking sick because you were so nervous from having to climb down from the loft they had made to look like heaven-" He said.

"The man said something to her. What was it?" I demanded.

"I said, "Don't be nervous, I know you're afraid of heights since it runs in the family but just take a deep breath and think of the sea.' and after that you nodded and ran backstage." He said. I gasped. No one but my mother would have known about that.

"See I was there for you even though you didn't." He murmured. I sighed and bit my lip. Percy chuckled and nudged me.

"So what did you get me?" I asked. He came over to me and handed me a box. I glanced at it before yanking the wrapping and the bow off the top and around the box. I smiled as I opened the top of the box and then looked at the things inside. There were three things inside it, two small boxes and then a photo-frame. I took the tiny box in the middle and glanced at it. I opened it up to see a pen inside it. I glanced at Percy confused as he looked at me with a smile.

"Thanks for the-um-pen?" I asked staring at him.

"Click it." He said. I looked at Percy and then clicked it and it transformed into a sword. My eyes widened as I stood up and started to swing it through my fingers.

"It's just celestial bronze. I know that you have a Stygian iron one from your boyfriend." He said.

"You know about that? You know about Blake?" I asked. He nodded.

"I keep an eye on you." He said. I shrugged and then figured out how to shrink it back to being a pen before going back to the box. I picked up the second box and opened it up. It was a charm bracelet. I smiled as I looked at the charms. They were a trident, a shield, a hibiscus flower, and my birthstone. I wrapped it around my wrist and smiled at it.

"The shield is an actually shield." He murmured. I nodded and then picked up the picture frame. I looked at it and my eyes widened.

"It was the day you were born." He murmured. I stared at it and tears welded up into my eyes. I glanced over the picture and it was my mom in the hospital room and she looked like she had just been put through hell. She was all sweaty but she was smiling. Then there standing next to her was Dad holding me in his arms. The baby me was smiling at him and raising her arms out towards him.

"You were there?" I asked.

"I was, at exactly 10 pm." He said. I chuckled and looked at my mother's smiling face again.

"Where did you get this?" I asked as I glanced up at him tears streaming down my face. Out of the corner of my eye I saw Percy smiling and looking down at the picture I held.

"I had it, before I had to leave your mother she made two copies and when I had to leave I took the second one." He murmured. I was at loss for words. I couldn't even comprehend what he had just said to me.

"Are you alright Cassi?" Percy asked.

"I'm in fucking shock what do you think?" I murmured. Percy laughed and I shook my head and rubbed my eyes free of the tears. I set the picture down and just stared at it.

"Cassi," Percy murmured.

"Shh, I'm having a moment," I said. He laughed and dad came over to me.

"You might not think that I'm there watching you but I am." He whispered. I nodded.

"I have one question." I said.

"What?" He asked.

"Why did you let Aphrodite claim me instead of growing a pair and claiming me yourself?" I asked. Percy looked at me wide-eyed.

"Because it's dangerous to have a kid of the big three. That's why Percy's mom tried to keep him safe all these years. With you it was a little more difficult because your mother wouldn't remarry like Sally did." He said. I nodded.

"But why did you claim me then with Percy? Why then?" I asked.

"Because I knew that Percy would need someone to help him through all this...and I knew my enemies were beginning to discover who your parent actually was. Luke son of Hermes knew about it way before I ever hoped and noticed the signs." Dad said as he shook his head.

"What do you mean?" I asked confused.

"It was about 5 years after you had come to camp. I had to talk to Dionysus about something important. After the meeting I was walking by the water when I noticed you on the pier. You were staring at me and in the back of my mind your face brought back memories of you when you were little but you could see more of how you sort of looked like me unlike when you were little. Then after a moment you went back to talking to something at your feet. I noticed it was a dolphin and you acted like it was nothing at all. That's when you friend Bethany came running to you yelling at you to be careful where you talk to random animals and to make sure no one was around you. I could tell she knew but she was keeping safe." He said. I thought back to the day he was talking about it. He was right it had been a dolphin and Bethany had started to yell at me about where I talked to sea creatures at. She said I had a talent no one should know about until the gods wanted everyone to know. Well I guess I knew what she meant about that.

"What do you mean though about Luke?" I asked.

"He saw you that day talking to that dolphin and after I had seen that it took everything in my being to make sure Zeus and Hades never found out. Look how much trouble was caused because they thought Percy was the lightning bolt thief." He said. I nodded thoughtfully.

"That's true I guess." I murmured. Percy chuckled and then dad sighed as he glanced at his watch on his wrist.

"I have to get back you to." He said.

"Alright." I said.

"I'll try to visit again soon." He promised. We nodded and then he just simply disappeared. I shook my head and studied the pen before me and sighed. I uncapped it again and it became a sword again. I stood up and swung it through my fingers trying to get a good feel for it.

"So do you like it?" Percy asked.

"Yeah it's a good sword. I think it'll come in hand during a fight." I said as the doorbell rang. I went to the door and looked out the peephole to see that Blake was standing there smiling. I opened the door and let him come in. When I did he hugged me tightly and gave me a quick peck on the lips before going into the living room.

"What are you cooking? It smells amazing." He said.

"It's lasagna." I said. Blake licked his lips before he sat down beside Percy. That's when the buzzer dinged and I went into the kitchen and pulled the lasagna out of the stove. I let it cool while I put the bread sticks in and got the salad together, just like my mother used to do for me. After about ten more minutes I called them both into the kitchen and put out plates for them. They helped themselves but let me go first and I loaded up on the food because I was hungry. We all watched TV together but I wasn't really paying attention to the channel surfing because Percy and Blake were arguing over the remote and where to have the TV on. I was thinking about what my dad had been saying.

"Babe are you alright? You've been awfully quiet." He said.

"I'm just thinking because before you came in my dad was here and he was saying stuff and it's a long story." I murmured.

"But still it's a story so it should be told." He murmured as he set his plate down on the table in front of him.

"You're corny." I whispered. He laughed and kissed the side of my head lightly before the knock came on the door. I glanced over at Percy confused. He shrugged and I got up and looked through the peep hole to see Grover and Annabeth with Thalia. What the fuck was this? I opened the door and they all came in and I stared at them as they went into the living room. I closed the door and then followed them.

"Do you guys wanna go on a rescue mission?" Grover asked. I glanced at Percy and Blake and shrugged.

"It's not like we're going to do anything tonight." I shrugged. Percy nodded and we quickly finished up dinner.

"Let’s go save some poor kid." I said.

"Actually it's two at a boarding school." Grover said. I nodded and Percy went to his room to grab his pen while I shoved mine into my pocket and smirked.

"Alright now what's the deal? I know there's going to be some monsters." I said. He nodded.

"Probably but we don't know what we'll be up against so keep up you guard." He said. I nodded and Percy returned and we quickly got ready to leave. I put the lasagna in the fridge with a note to Percy's mom telling her where we had gone and everything.

"Okay ready Cassi?" Blake asked holding the door open.

"Yeah," I said rushing out the door trying to catch up with them. This was going to be fun.
