Sea Princess

Chapter 8

The school year had gone by so fast. It was weird and the summer was starting and we hadn't been heading back for camp. It was weird that he hadn't taken me back so I could go to school in New York. The cruise on this ship hadn't ended and I was getting worried. Me and Luke were going to have to go back to camp aren't we? I wanted to see Percy and then catch up with Bethany and also see Jake. I missed my friends.

I was sitting on the couch in a tank-top and some of my old school gym uniform shorts. It was my sleep-ware and was so comfy. I was flipping through the channels on the TV because Luke was talking to himself and it was really bothering me. Well actually he was talking it seemed to the golden casket. I had once gone over to it and like I had held my hand over it and it seemed like that thing had an aura of power pulsing around it. After that I hadn't gone near that thing.

"Luke why don't you talk to me instead of a stupid casket." I laughed as I looked back at him.

"It's not just a stupid coffin!" He snapped. He had been really super weird lately. He had been getting more and more pissed at me for no apparent reasons at all. He had even raised his hands once towards me threateningly. I had glared at him and yelled at him before running into the bedroom and locking the door. He had apologized later for it but still I was worried about what would've happened if I had pushed him a little further.

"Looks like it." I said. He came up to me and I got up. I backed up against the wall and he held me by the neck. He had never tried to do this before. I stared at him with wide eyes and I tried to breath but it was difficult with his hand pressed against my throat.

"Don't ever say that again." He warned me. I rolled my eyes. Seriously? I really didn't care. It was a gold coffin sitting in the middle of the room that he kept talking to instead of me. It seemed like I had been replaced by a coffin.

"I'm not afraid of you Luke!" I snapped as my hands curled into fists.

"You should be!" He yelled at me. I glared at him.

"Well I'm not! What are you going to do about it?" I asked him. I was seriously provoking him to do something. I wanted to see what he was going to do when I challenged him.

"This," He said. He started tightening his hand around my neck. I grabbed his hands and scratched them bringing blood once I started to see stars. He dropped me and I gasped for breath as I clutched my neck trying to breathe. He seriously needed his head checked. I didn't know what was wrong with him!

"Bitch!" He yelled. I collapsed on the carpet on my hands and knees coughing and then he started kicking me in the stomach. I grunted every time he kicked me and I finally just curled up into a ball protecting my chest and stomach from the blows.

"Stop Luke!" A voice said. He turned toward the casket shocked and I looked up freaked out as tears streamed down my face heavily.

"Did that just talk?" I whispered. I sat up and stared at it, wincing as I moved. No way on heaven or earth was that thing talking. No fucking way.

"We need her! The prophecy says, "The half-blood of the eldest god shall reach 16'. We need her alive when she reaches 16 Luke." The voice roared. It was true I hadn't turned 16 yet. I turned 16 on July 4Th. Lucky me right? Independence Day baby. The 4th though was only a few weeks away.

"Oh my fucking gods." I said. Luke looked at me.

"But she called you stupid she needs to be punished!" He said. I just sort of snorted and I guess he heard me because he glared down at me.

"I'm going to be punished...oh, I'm scared." I laughed as I winced. He bent down to my height. I pulled my feet up so that I was sitting against the wall in a ball. I was about to do something very ballsy. I pushed him with all my strength in the chest. He flew across the room and I smirked at him. God that was easy.

"You are going to regret that!" He yelled at me as he got to his knees.

"Yeah right." I said getting up. He started coming toward me and I ran. This was going on the last couple weeks now. We were getting really bored with each other. I vaulted over the couch and he tried but failed epically. I laughed at him and put my hands on my hips.

"Epic fail!" I laughed. Then somehow he came up behind me and wrapped his arm around my neck. He lifted me off the floor choking me. I put my hands on his arm trying to pry it away so I could breathe.

"So I couldn't get you huh?" He asked me. Then he tightened the grip on me till I started turning red. He dropped me when another half-blood came in. I coughed trying to get air back into my lungs. He looked at me as I crawled over the couch away from Luke.

"Trouble in Paradise?" He chuckled.

"Fuck you," I breathed.

"Shut up! Cassi is being stupid." He said.

"No I'm not Castellan." I said. He just rolled his eyes and I glared at him. Fuck him.

"Do not go anywhere." He commanded. Did he seriously just order me not to do something? Now that was really funny. No one commanded me to do anything!

"And If I do?!" I challenged him. He came over to me and I stood up looking at him. He slapped me across the face. I landed a kick to his knee. He punched me in the face. That was the first. I stumbled back and fell backwards. I touched my lip to see my blood. Crap. I stared at him as my lip trembled. Where was my Luke?

"That." He said. He walked out of the room. Then within a couple minutes Percy, Annabeth, and a Cyclops came in. Percy looked at me and he got red in the face. I took out a mirror and looked. My black eye was already noticeable and my cheek was red plus the bloody lip.

"Cassi!" Percy said trying to get to me.

"Hey Percy." I said weakly.

"Well, a little nicer than Cabin Eleven, huh?" Luke asked spreading his arms wide open. I scoffed and he glared at me.

"Go die in Tartarus Luke." I said. He stepped forward and I lunged for Backbiter. I grabbed it and it literally burned me. I screamed and dropped it. He just smiled as he picked it up and put it in his sword holder at his waist.

"Don't touch Backbiter." He said.

"Sit." He said waving his hand toward Percy and them. Three dining chairs were brought out but they didn't sit down. I stood up and headed toward the bedroom. This was my chance to leave so I was going to. I grabbed one of my bags and stuffed as much stuff as I could. My important stuff I left at camp saying that I would get it when I came back. I hope the Harpies didn't eat it. If they did I was going to kick some harpie ass. I pulled it out with me and then put it beside the couch hoping Luke didn't see it. I hid it to make sure Luke or anyone else didn't see it.

"Where are my manners? These are my assistants, Agrius and Oreius. Perhaps you've heard of them." Luke said. I crossed my arms and pulled on my sweatshirt.

"You don't know Agrius and Oreius's story? Their mother...well, it's sad, really. Aphrodite ordered the young woman to fall in love. She refused and ran to Artemis for help. Artemis let her become one of her maiden Huntresses, but Aphrodite got her revenge. She bewitched the young woman into falling in love with a bear. When Artemis found out, she abandoned the girl in disgust. Typical of the gods, wouldn't you say? They fight with one another and the poor humans get caught in the middle. The girl's twin sons here, Agrius and Oreius, have no love for Olympus. They like Half-bloods well enough, though..." Luke said.

"For lunch," Agrius growled. Nasty ass shit right there.

"He-he! He-he!" Oreius laughed. He kept laughing and then he Luke and Agrius glared at him.

"Shut up you idiot! Go punish yourself!" Agrius growled. Then it took me a moment to realize Luke was talking shit on Aphrodite!

"You did not just talk shit on my mother!" I snapped standing up. Luke looked down at me.

"Sit down and be quiet." He said. I shook my head and he came to me over to me and took my face his hands tightly.

"Be good." He whispered. I spit in his face and he slapped me and I kicked him in the shin. He doubled over.

"Tell me to be good one more time and see what happens." I warned. I felt something on my leg and then something pulled me up in the air. I screamed as I hit my head against the floor before I was completely suspended in the air.

"Hey let me go you fuck!" I yelled. I swung my arms around to grab something. I ended up grabbing Percy.

"Well Percy and Cassi we let you survive another year. I hope you appreciated it. How's your mom? How's school?" Luke asked.

"Bite me Luke!" I snapped turned around as I grabbed Percy around the shoulders so I could look at Luke.

"You poisoned Thalia's tree." Percy said.

"Right to the point, eh? Okay, sure I poisoned the tree. So what?" He asked. I was so shocked I let go of Percy. I stared at him shocked as I swayed back and forth in the air. I couldn't believe he had done that! She had given up her life to protect us and he poisoned her tree!

"You did what?!" I screamed. I kicked Agrius in the face and he let me go. I came crashing to the floor. I groaned and Luke walked over to me and pulled me up by my hair. I groaned and Percy was glaring at Luke because he couldn't do anything and if he tried to Luke could and probably would do something to me. It was a lost situation.

"Fuck fuck ouch fuck fuck ouch!" I said. He held me back by the hair and twisted my head so I was staring him in the eyes.

"Shut up," He advised. I glared at him.

"How could you? Thalia saved your life! Our Lives! How could you dishonor her-"Annabeth said.

"I didn't dishonor her! The gods dishonored her, Annabeth! If Thalia were alive, she'd be on my side like Cassi is!" He smiled down at me. Percy looked at me shocked. I glared at him

"Liar!" Annabeth screamed.

"How dare you say I'm on your side! I'll never be on your side Luke! You want to destroy our families! You want to destroy half of our lives and I'm not going to let you do that!" I screamed. He kneed me in the side and I fell to the floor gasping for breath clutching my side.

"Cassi!" Percy yelled.

"If you knew what was coming, you'd understand-" Luke yelled.

"I understand you want to destroy camp! You're a monster." She yelled.

"You didn't used to be but you are now!" I murmured.

"The gods have blinded you. Can't you imagine a world without them, Annabeth? What good is that ancient history you study? Three thousand years of baggage! The West is rotten to the core. It has to be destroyed. Join me! We can start the world anew. We could use your intelligence, Annabeth!" he said. Luke was seriously stupid if he thought that Annabeth was going to join him. She would never join him she was to smart.

"Because you have none of your own!" She snapped. I laughed and then Luke looked down at me.

"I know you, Annabeth. You deserve better than tagging along on some hopeless quest to save the camp. Half-blood Hill will be overrun by monsters within the month. The heroes who survive will have no choice but to join us or be hunted to extinction. You really want to be on a losing team...with company like this?" Luke said pointing at the Cyclops.

"Hey!" Percy said. I looked at him.

"Traveling with a Cyclops, talk about dishonoring Thalia's memory! I'm surprised at you, Annabeth. You of all people-" Luke said.

"Stop it!" She yelled.

"Leave her alone, and leave Tyson out of this." Percy said.

"Oh yeah, I heard. Your father claimed him." Luke said. He pulled me up by my hair and I yelped.

"Look Cassi another Half-brother for you to watch over!" Luke mocked me and now tears were running down my face. Luke looked down at me and his gaze softened when he saw me crying. He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me too him hugging me. I didn't hug back. I wanted to be as far away from here as possible right now.

"Yes, Percy, I know all about that. And about your plan to find the Fleece. What were those coordinates, again...30,31,75,12? You see, I still have friends at camp who keep me posted." Luke smiled.

"Spies you mean." Percy said.

"How many insults from your father can you stand, Percy? You think he's grateful to you? You think Poseidon cares for you any more than he cares for this monster, or for Cassi!?" He asked hugging me tighter. A sob escaped through my lips and Luke ran his hand down over my hair to my back.

"The gods are so using you, Percy, Cassi? Do you have any idea what's in store for you if you two reach your sixteenth birthday? Has Chiron even told you the prophecy? That's why I have Cassi here on the ship it's to protect her. I need her safe." Luke muttered. I stared up at him confused.

"I know what I need to know, like whom my enemies are and Cassi you should to!" Percy yelled at me.

"I do! Percy I don't support this! I want to go home! I want to go back to camp!" I yelled.

"Then you’re a fool and Cassi you're not going anywhere." He whispered the last part in my ear. I cringed.

"Percy is not a fool." The Cyclops said. He smashed the chair into splinters and I screamed. Then I looked at him and he came towards us and I cowered into Luke. I had always been afraid of Cyclops since I was little. I had run into one at the park and he had hurt me. The bears intercepted him and I sighed. He fell to the floor and the deck shook. Luke squeezed me tightly before pushing me in the direction of the couch.

"Too bad, Cyclops, looks like my grizzly friends together are more than a match for your strength. Maybe I should let them-" Luke said.

"Luke, listen to me. Your father sent us." Percy said. I froze and looked up at him. I shook my head. He shouldn't have said that.

"Percy-" I whispered shaking my head with my eyes wide.

"Don't-even- mention him." Luke said his face turning red. I bit my lip and looked back and forth between the two.

"He told us to take this boat. I thought it was just for a ride, but he sent us here to find you. He told me he won't give up on you, no matter how angry you are." Percy said. Percy you need to shut up.

"Angry? Give up on me? He abandoned me, Percy! I want Olympus destroyed! Everyone throne crushed to rubble! You tell Hermes it's going to happen, too. Each time a half-blood joins us, the Olympians grow weaker and we grow stronger. He grows stronger." Luke said pointing to the casket.

"So, what's so special...?” Percy demanded. Then realization crossed over his face.

"Whoa, you don't mean-" Percy asked.

"He is re-forming, little by little; we're calling his life force out of the pit. With every recruit who pledges our cause, another small piece appears-" Luke said.

"That's disgusting!" Annabeth said.

"Your mother was born from Zeus's split skull, Annabeth. I wouldn't talk. Soon there will be enough of the titan lord so that we can make him whole again. We will piece together a new body for him, a work worthy of the forges of Hephaestus." Luke sneered.

"You're insane!" Annabeth said.

"Join us and you'll be rewarded. We have powerful friends, sponsors rich enough to buy this cruise ship and much more. Percy, your mother will never have to work again. You can buy her a mansion. You can have power, fame-whatever you want. Annabeth, you can realize your dream of being an architect. You can build a monument to last a thousand years. A temple to the lords of the next age! Cassi you can be going out with the titan lord’s right hand man. You can have anything you want." Luke smirked proudly. I rolled my eyes.

"I don't want everything the world has to offer! I want to go home!" I screamed.

"Go to Tartarus." She snapped.

"A shame." He said. He picked up a remote and hit a red button. Two crew members came through the door that.

"Ah good security. I'm afraid we have some stowaways." Luke said.

"Yes sir." They said.

"It's time to feed the Aethiopian drakon. Take these fools below and show them how it's done." Luke said.

"No!" I screamed.

"He he! He he!" Oreius said.

"Let me go too my brother is worthless. That Cyclops-" Agrius said.

"Is no threat, Agrius stay here. We have important matters to discuss." Luke said.

"But-"Agrius said.

"Oreius don't fail me. Stay in the hold to make sure the drakon is properly fed." Luke said. They were led out. I looked at Luke in disbelief.

"I got to go. Don't you dare leave this room." He said.

"Wouldn't dream of it!" I said. He kissed me and then closed the door. I grabbed my book-bag and slung it on my back. I waited a minute because by then he would have rounded the corner of the hallway and would be on his marry way. Then I sprung up and ran out the door looking both ways before running. I heard the sirens go off and I ran up to the upper decks. I saw Percy and them jump into a lifeboat.

"Wait!" I screamed. Percy looked at me.

"Hurry up!" he yelled. I jumped in avoiding an arrow that went straight over my head. I screamed and Percy sliced through the ropes of the lifeboat sending it smashing to the water then we started moving at a 35 degree angle. We slammed into the water and I groaned.

"I'm going to go back to camp." I said. Percy looked at me.

"But we could use you on the quest." He said. I shook my head.

"3's a magic number and it's all that work on quest. The last time I remember someone had a 4 quest that one got kill and 3 came back. I value my life sorry." I said. He nodded and I whistled and a dolphin came up.

"Cassi!" I heard Luke yell. I flinched and glanced back at the boat to see his silhouette at the side of it.

"What did he do to you?" Percy asked concerned. I shook my head as a few tears escaped my eyes.

"I don't want to talk about it." I murmured. I didn't want to tell Percy I had had sex with a guy who just beat the shit out of me in front of him and before he had come in. I didn't want to tell anyone. Ever.

"Alright." He said. I jumped into the sea and grabbed onto the dolphins fin and he took me back to camp. There standing on the shore was Cody when I got there. He was a kid from Apollo cabin. He was a really good archer and was really cute. Cute enough he thought he was in Aphrodite's cabin. I stood up and I noticed that some of my cuts and stuff had healed because of me being in the water but I was still sore and there were bruises covering me. I collapsed in the water ankle deep exhausted from fighting Luke.

"Cassi?!" Cody called out. He pulled me out of the water and took me in his arms and carried me to the big house. I saw Chiron look at me and that's when everything became blurry and hazy as exhaustion started to win in the battle.

"Cassi can you hear me?" He asked. I nodded and then passed out.
