Hello everyone, I am posting again! This is one of my better chapters (in my opinion)
@nicecatch42: umm, okay... i assure u that doesnt happen :P
Enjoy guys!

Chapter 14: Nico

Not only was Nico surprised and worried, he was mad. The monsters had completely ignored the other demigods, sprinting straight towards Ariel and attacking her. He summoned the dead, feeling the thump, thump, thump of the train tracks underneath the Amtrak, and below that the ground. Suddenly, his army of the dead was here, and formed a straight line around him, and he ordered the skeletons to attack the monsters.

He took his stygian black sword and charged, and noticed the others doing the same, trying to distract the monsters from Ariel. Only Piper wasn’t fighting, since she was doing her charmspeaking, encouraging the demigods to fight harder, to know that they indeed can beat these monsters.

Nico glanced at Ariel and was horrified; she had cuts, gashes, and bruises all over her body, but the girl didn’t seem to back down, even in her state. He looked closer and saw she had a strange aura around her, and knew it must be Apollo helping her in this battle.

Out of the corner of his eye he could see a hellhound charging towards him, but of course, Nico was once again distracted by Ariel’s fighting skills. The hellhound trampled him, refusing to get off. Nico cursed.

‘How could I have gotten into this situation again? How?! First the Cyclops, now the hellhound!’ He thought, groaning, thinking back to Camp Half-Blood where a Cyclops had trampled him before.

‘Camp Half-Blood,’ Nico thought. ‘What’s happening to them now?’

He struggled to get up, and his sword was halfway across the train. Nico grunted. He wasn’t going to let some stupid monster win against him; no, he wasn’t. Using all of his might, Nico managed to bring up more armies from the dead, and the skeletons fought against the hellhound, eventually breaking Nico free. He dusted himself off, and then went on to attacking the hellhound, immediately sending it back to the Underworld after slashing it with his sword.

Fifty monsters slowly descended to only ten, and Nico got a resurgence of power; they could do this, they really could.

‘Only ten more left.’ He thought.

But, he spoke too soon. More monsters came in, about one hundred, making the room inside the train very tight and claustrophobic.

Nico cursed. He saw about half of the monsters going towards Ariel, and quickly stood by her side, the two fighting together.

She glanced at him and smiled, sending more power to Nico. He fought with renewed resilience, slashing whatever monsters came their way. But even as his confidence was rising, Nico knew that the demigods couldn’t keep fighting for this long. Even he was losing his energy, and saw that Ariel was starting to slow down, her breathing hard.

Piper was still charmspeaking all of them, but even she was losing power. Nico had no idea how talking could cause you to lose power, but then again, anything could lose energy. As soon as one monster was killed, ten more would come in, sending the demigods into despair. He heard Percy yell in exasperation, and could feel the ground rumbling.

Annabeth was using her invisibility cap to fight the monsters, and sometimes out of nowhere one would have a surprised look on its face, then crumble to dust. Jason was fighting hard with his gladius, but Nico had no clue why he wasn’t using his all-powerful I’m-the-kid-of-Zeus lightning powers. Leo was shooting fire from his hands at every monster, making the room that much more heated and claustrophobic.

Nico glanced around. There had to be some way of defeating these monsters, without constantly having to send them back to Tartarus. The demigods had to escape this train.

‘But how?’ Nico thought. ‘Think Nico, think. Use your awesome, deadly, I’m-that-awesome-son-of-Hades-powers. Think.’

Nico could swear that his head was about to burst, and out of the corner of his eye saw a dracaenae coming towards him, but Ariel quickly shot a bow in its head, sending it to dust.

There was more rumbling heard from the ground, more fire, and suddenly, a little spark of lightning.

Something clicked inside of Nico. He looked at Percy, at Jason, and at Leo. An idea formed in his head, something that was very dangerous, but what all of these kids could pull off.

“Percy! Make the earth rumble more, bring out your anger and shake the earth!” Percy looked puzzled, trying to comprehend why Nico was giving this order to him.

“Jason, strike lightning from the sky onto the train! Not yet, but when Percy starts to shake the earth, that’s when!” Jason, too, looked confused but when Nico glanced back at Percy, he could see the gears turning in that seaweed brain’s head.

“Leo, when I say GO, use your fire to burst the train, sending it to flames! Now, everyone get outta here!” He yelled, opening the emergency door in the back of the room, which sent off a lot of alarms and yelling from the conductors.

Nico glanced at Ariel, and saw that she looked scared. He had no clue why, but he couldn’t think about that now; he had to get every demigod out of here, and fast.

As soon as everyone got out, the monsters slowly understood what his plan was, and charged towards them. Nico was faster though, sealing the door shut with super glue (he somehow had it in his pocket) which left the monsters inside.

But, just to make sure, Nico asked Piper to Charmspeak the monsters to stay in there. The train had stopped for some reason, probably because of opening the emergency doors. Now, Nico knew, was the perfect time to set up his plan.

“Percy, shake the ground like you’ve never shaken it before! Let all of your anger out!” He commanded to Percy, and the demigod listened, the ground beneath Nico shaking so hard that he almost moved half a mile from where he once stood.

“Jason, summon lightning from the sky and blast it to the train! Leo, you will throw your fire stuff at it too, and that will all happen when I count to three!” Nico said, trying to keep his balance from the shaking earth.

‘Wow.’ He thought, ‘Percy sure must be really angry.’

“One. Two. THREE!” Nico counted, and that was when all hell broke loose, the train bursting to bits, exploding everywhere, covering the demigods in burnt train parts, sparks flying everywhere.

Hey guys! Glad you liked that chapter. So, I'm posting another one today, and once again, if I get 4+ comments, I'll post again later... or on Tuesday.
Personally, I don't like this chapter. But you know, sometimes you need drama between two people so that's kind of why I made this... but the drama is kind of pointless :P oh well. Hope you guys like!

Chapter 15: Percy

Percy closed his eyes at the sight of the train exploding. When he opened them, some rubble was on top of the demigods, but most of it was scattered along the train tracks. He looked around at the others, and noticed two things: Ariel had a shocked, scared face. Nico on the other hand, had a triumphant look.

Something clicked in Percy’s brain. The people sitting in the same room as they were, the people who boarded the same train as they did, the people who fled the train after seeing the monsters.

These three images formed a fact in Percy’s brain: the mortals were gone, dead, and it was the demigods’ fault.

His sadness and guilt slowly turned to anger, and Percy found himself walking over to Nico, and the next thing he did surprised him. He slapped the triumphant boy in the face, and hard.

Everyone else was shocked. Nico looked up at him, anger in his eyes. “What was that for? I just saved your life! I just came up with the most brilliant plan ever, by the most brilliant son of Hades ever!”

“Did you even CARE to think about the INNOCENT mortals inside? Did you?! Look at how many lives we cost!” Percy shouted at him, and he felt the earth shaking beneath him.

Annabeth stood next to him, putting her hand on his shoulder. “We all forgot, Percy. It’s not only just Nico’s fault.”

Percy knew that she was right, but he couldn’t help but feel broken and helpless. He sat down on the hard, Maryland ground. There was nothing to be seen around them, no stores, houses, nothing. He knew that they had to get into town right away to find their next transportation.

“Does this mean we’re walking on foot to Florida?” Leo asked, trying to lighten the mood. Piper glared at him, and Leo just raised his hands, basically saying, ‘Hey, I was only trying to help!’

“We can’t walk on foot, Leo. Camp Half-Blood probably needs our help. Plus, we’d be exhausted if we walked all the way to the sunshine state.” Jason replied, sarcasm dripping on the word “sunshine.”

‘Oh gods.’ Percy thought. He had totally forgotten about Camp Half-Blood. ‘What kind of monster am I?’

Annabeth seemed to be reading his mind. “Percy, it’s not your fault. I’m sure we can Iris-message Chiron. Let me just find some water.”

There was a stream nearby where the demigods were, and they all crowded around it.

“Leo, could you throw fire in that water? We got to make steam first if we want to Iris-message.” Annabeth told him.

Leo did as he was told and as soon as the steam was rising from the water, Annabeth tossed in a drachma and spoke these words:

“O Iris, goddess of the rainbow, except our blessing. Show us Chiron, Camp Half-Blood.”

The steam shimmered to an image of their camp, but Percy was shocked to see the state it was in. The image showed the Big House, where tons of campers lay in the infirmary, injured, the Apollo campers trying to heal everyone as quickly as they could.

Percy spotted Chiron in his centaur form and called out to him. “Chiron! Is everything okay?”

His trainer turned around and saw them, a defeated look on his face. “Yes. And by that I mean only a few campers have died, many are injured, and the campers from Camp Jupiter helped us greatly. They are still here, you know.”

Everyone breathed a slight sigh of relief that there had been help from the Romans.

“Percy, where are you now?” Chiron asked him.


Chiron looked devastated. “Mr. D had apparently just turned on the TV, and the news was on. Were all of you on an Amtrak train going to Virginia?”


The old centaur was swinging his tail back and forth, which Percy knew meant that he was nervous. “The headline of the news was, ’16 Year Old Girl Blows up Maryland Amtrak Train.’ Apparently she is a fugitive from New York who has been missing for four days and had apprentices with her, but they only caught her face on camera. And who do you think that is, Percy?”

He glanced around his friends, and his eyes immediately turned to the hopeless face of Ariel’s.

“Oh my gods…” Percy heard her whisper. She had a scared look in her eyes and as soon as she looked at the scattered parts of the train, she started running away.

Percy couldn’t believe it. There she was, the important demigod, Ariel, and she was running away. He ran after her, and found her sitting on a rock, her head in her hands.

He sat next to her, but didn’t know what to do. “Hey… it’s okay… you’re gonna be okay.”

Ariel shook her head. “If my mom finds about this… she can see through the Mist, I know it. I just know it. She probably knows that I’m a demigod, and she’ll come looking for me here.”

Percy didn’t know what kind of mom was Ariel’s, but he could tell it wasn’t like his mom, one who bakes him blue frosted cake for his birthday and gives him blue apple juice on a hot, summer day.

He awkwardly placed an arm around Ariel’s shoulder and brought her close. “We’ll keep you safe from your mom. But right now, we need to discuss our quest plans. Just hang your head low, and try to disguise yourself from the mortals. Being a fugitive is hard, but hey, when you’re a demigod, everything’s hard. Plus, you’ve got my awesome son of the sea god knowledge to help you, ‘cause I’ve been through this before.”

Ariel looked at him with hope. “Thanks, Percy… I guess we should go back now.” They both got up and saw Annabeth there, an angry look on her face.

Ariel looked nervously at the two and walked awkwardly away first, which left Percy and Annabeth.

“What?” He asked her. “Is something wrong?”

She glared at him. “What. Did. I. Just. See. There?”

Percy was surprised. “You mean between me and Ariel? Chill, Annabeth, I was only comforting her. You know, being a fugitive is hard.”

“Oh sure, Percy, like comforting her is putting your arm around her, and her leaning on your shoulder!” Annabeth spat at him, sarcasm dripping in her words.

“Annabeth, I was only trying to make her less scared.”

“Sure, Percy, sure! I really believe you! Of course a FRIEND wouldn’t put their arm around someone and hold them close to them!”

Now Percy was getting angry. Here his fiancée was, and she was blaming him for something he didn’t even do.

“Annabeth, like I told you, she was scared and I was just trying to help her. Why can’t you, out of all people, understand that?” Percy asked her, genuine disappointment in his voice.

Annabeth seemed to be getting his words. Then she broke down, tears streaming on her face, and sat on the hard ground. “I-I’m s-sorry, P-Percy. I-I just don’t w-want u-us to b-be the ones in t-the p-prophecy.”

Percy sighed. Two crying girls in one day was definitely weighing him down. He crouched next to Annabeth and put his arm around her, hugging her fiercely.

“Hey, we’re engaged now, Wise Girl. I won’t let ANYTHING happen to use, nothing at all. Nothing can stop us. We’re Seaweed Brain and Wise Girl, the perfect combination.”

Annabeth looked up at him and sighed. “I was stupid, getting mad at you for that. It’s just the quest… I have a weird feeling like something really bad is going to happen.”

Percy knew exactly what she was feeling and didn’t say that. “It’s going to be okay; everything’s gonna be okay.”

Annabeth looked doubtful. “But, Percy, what if everything won’t be okay?”

Percy knew there was a chance of that, but he helped Annabeth up from the ground and kissed her gently on the forehead.

“Like I said Wise Girl, I won’t let anything happen to us.”

But even as Percy said that, he had to admit there was some doubt running through his mind.
Ugh, I hated that chapter... :P On another note...

As promised, I am posting another "chapter" (its really an extra... which sucks :P) Sigh. Two bad chapters in one day. :P
@nicecatch42: 1. I can assure you that someone will be killed, but I'm not guarenteeing its Annabeth.
2. I advertised for you cuz you deserved it. lol and yes, I have nerve. (not really)

Character Extra 5: Jason

Despite everyone else’s problems, Jason was relieved he didn’t have anything going on in his life, yet. He wasn’t worrying about his and Piper’s relationship; no, everything was going fine. They talked everyday, they talked battle plans everyday, and it wasn’t awkward at all.

The crew walked into Baltimore, Maryland, the nearest city. Ariel looked shaken up and had her head down, while Nico looked uncomfortable walking next to her. Percy and Annabeth were talking intently to the side, probably discussing plans for the quest. Jason could see Leo was working on something, and when he squinted to see the thing, it looked like a tiny robot.

There was only one thing that was bothering Jason these days. A line from the prophecy: But the true meaning will be defeated…

Jason wondered what the true meaning was. If the quest was for the demigods to defeat the monsters, wouldn’t that be their real goal? Or is there a goal behind the real goal?

He was frustrated. Finding out the meanings of prophecies was hard, and Jason knew he shouldn’t toy with them. But, that didn’t stop him from thinking about it, it was natural.

The grumbling of his stomach brought him back to the future. Jason hadn’t eaten since last night, skipping breakfast this morning.

Piper seemed to hear his loud stomach. “Hungry?”

“Yep. Hey, guys, why don’t we go eat something?” Jason suggested to everyone.

Percy didn’t seem so sure, but Jason could see his stomach was also ruling over him.

“There’s a donut shop nearby, we passed it a few minutes back. Hopefully, there won’t be demon chocolate frosted donuts awaiting us there.” Percy joked, trying to lighten the mood, but no one, not even Leo, laughed.
One of my worst writings ever. :P
