AN: sorry about not updating for a while but I am now trying to update most of my stories regularly so there's that to look forward to and if any of the people who read this story like merlin or harry potter or both try reading my story waiting for destiny it's a crossover of the two but anyway hope you like this chapter.
Poseidon groaned and then looked at Percy as if to reprimand him for it but deciding now probably wouldn't be the time he let artemis read. We spent two days on the Amtrak train, heading west through hills, over rivers, past amber waves of grain. We weren't attacked once, but I didn't relax. I felt that we were traveling around in a display case, being watched from above and maybe from below, that something was waiting for the right opportunity.
I tried to keep a low profile because my name and picture were splattered over the front pages of several East Coast newspapers. I had a wild look in my eyes. My sword was a metallic blur in my hands. It might've been a baseball bat or a lacrosse stick. Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson, wanted for questioning in the Long Island disappearance of his mother two weeks ago, is shown here fleeing from the bus where he accosted several elderly female passengers.
The bus exploded on an east New Jersey roadside shortly after Jackson fled the scene. Based on eyewitness accounts, police believe the boy may be traveling with two teenage accomplices. His stepfather, Gabe Ugliano, has offered a cash reward for information leading to his capture. Poseidon growled and stood up from the sofa ''I'm gonna kill him, the bastard, I swear to the gods I am going to kill him'' he swore and artemis decided to carry on reading lest he start ranting.
The rest of the day I spent alternately pacing the length of the I-Man - Sons Of Poseidon - Live By The Sword because I had a really hard time sitting still or looking out the windows. Once, I spotted a family of centaurs galloping across a wheat field, bows at the ready, as they hunted lunch.
The little boy centaur, who was the size of a second-grader on a pony, caught my eye and waved. I looked around the passenger car, but nobody else had noticed.
The adult riders all had their faces buried in laptop computers or magazines. Another time, toward evening, I saw something huge moving through the woods. I could've I-Man - Sons Of Poseidon - Live By The Sword it was a lion, except that lions don't live wild in America, and this thing was the size of a Hummer.
Its fur glinted gold in the evening light. Then it leaped through the trees and was gone. Our reward money for returning Gladiola the poodle had only been enough to purchase tickets as far as Denver. We couldn't get berths in the sleeper car, so we dozed in our seats. My neck got stiff. I tried not to drool in my sleep, since Annabeth was sitting right next to me.
Grover kept snoring and bleating and waking me up. Once, he shuffled around and his fake foot fell off. Annabeth and I had to stick it back on before any of the other passengers noticed. Everyone just laughed. I was reluctant to say anything. It was the second time I'd dreamed about the evil voice from the pit. But it bothered me so much I finally told her. Annabeth was quiet for a long time.
He always appears on a black throne, and he never laughs. But why ask you to bring him the master bolt if he already has it? I shook my head, wishing I knew the answer. I thought about what Grover had told me, that the Furies on the bus seemed to have been looking for something. Maybe Grover sensed my emotions. He snorted in his sleep, muttered something about vegetables, and turned his head.
Annabeth readjusted his cap so it covered his horns. You know that, right? He's deceitful, heartless, and greedy. I don't care if his Kindly Ones weren't as aggressive this time-". Her hand crept up to her necklace.
She fingered a glazed white bead painted with the image of a pine tree, one of her clay end-of-summer tokens. You can't be tempted to make a deal for your mom. Annabeth's gray eyes fixed on me. She wore the same expression she'd worn in the woods at camp, the moment she drew her sword against the hellhound. When he got me, he asked Athena to take me back and raise me on Olympus because he was too busy with his work.
She wasn't happy about that. She told him heroes had to be raised by their mortal parent. You'd think my dad would remember that as a miracle, right? Like, maybe he'd take some digital photos or some-thing. But he always talked about my arrival as if it were the most inconvenient thing that had ever happened to him. When I was five he got married and totally forgot about Athena.
He got a 'regular' mortal wife, and had two 'regular' mortal kids, and tried to pretend I didn't exist. Percy growled in his throat, even though him and Annabeth's dad were ok he still held a bit of a grudge for him hurting his wise girl. I stared When The Light Flows In - Cloudfire - Youll Be Fine the train window. The lights of a sleeping town were drifting by. Kazy Lambist - On You (File) wanted to make Annabeth feel better, but I didn't know how.
Maybe that's what your dad was thinking. Annabeth kept worrying at her necklace. She was pinching the gold college ring that hung with the beads. It occurred to me that the ring must be her father's. I wondered why she wore it if she hated him so much.
She wouldn't let me play with her children. My dad went along with her. Whenever something dangerous happened-you know, something with monsters-they would both look at me resentfully, like, 'How dare you put our family at risk. I wasn't wanted. I ran away.
Jason and piper whistled they hadn't exactly had the best lives but they hadn't run away at seven. Athena watched over me, guided me toward help. I made a couple of unexpected friends who took care of me, for a short time, anyway. I wanted to ask Various - BRM 2 happened, but Annabeth seemed lost in sad memories.
So I listened to the sound of Grover snoring and gazed out the train windows as the dark fields of Ohio raced by. Toward the end of our second day on the train, June 13, eight days before the summer solstice, we passed through some golden hills and over the Mississippi River into St.
Annabeth craned her neck to see the Gateway Arch, which looked to me like a huge shopping bag handle stuck on the city. I'm going to build the greatest monument to the gods, ever. Something that'll last a thousand years. I don't know why, but I found it funny. Just the idea of Annabeth trying to sit quietly and draw Say More Shit - DJ Tense - Signal Flow Podcast 30 day.
Her cheeks flushed. Athena expects her children to create things, not just tear them down, Y Avait Du Soleil - Edith Piaf - La Vie En Rose a certain god of earthquakes I could mention.
Annabeth had to think about it. So they had to work together to make it complete. Percy and Annabeth turned to each other and kissed, when they broke apart I-Man - Sons Of Poseidon - Live By The Sword had silly grins on their faces and said simultaneously ''you bet we can''.
We rode into the city, Annabeth watching as the Arch disappeared behind a hotel. We pulled into the Amtrak station downtown. The intercom told us we'd have a three-hour layover before departing for Denver. I-Man - Sons Of Poseidon - Live By The Sword you coming or not?
Annabeth groaned and shook her head ''I really wish we hadn't done that'' at peoples questioning looks she gestured to artemis to keep reading.
I wanted to say no, but I figured that if Annabeth was going, we couldn't very well let her go alone. Thalia, Percy and Grover burst out laughing ''a dam snack bar'' was heard through their giggles and the rest of the people looked to them questioning their sanity but Annabeth stepped in. The Arch was about a mile from the train station. Late in the day the lines to get in weren't that long. We threaded our way through the underground museum, looking at covered wagons and other junk from the s.
It wasn't all that thrilling, but Annabeth kept telling us interesting facts about how the Arch was built, and I-Man - Sons Of Poseidon - Live By The Sword kept passing me jelly beans, so I was okay.
