I'm bored again.
This has a few things to do with my fanfiction, but you don't need to read it to understand this.
Title: Carmen's Judgement
Sypnosis: This is about Carmen's judgement in the Underworld.
I said my last words to Percy, and died.
I was in a room filled with spirits.
I have enough sense to know I was dead.
I scanned the area, and found a guy in an Italian suit in a raised podium, so I have to look up to him. Charon.
I approached, and said, "I would like a ride across the River Styx."
Charon looked up from his newspaper, and grunted, "Eh? You dead?"
"Gotta pay first. I can charge it on your American Express, but alas, children don't die prepared."
I rumaged in my pockets, and took out a golden coin. I handed it to Charon.
Charon studied me, his fingers hovering above the coin. He said, "You a hero?"
He sighed, and folded his newspaper. "The boat's almost full anyway. Ever since the Second Titan War, the spirits of heroes have been filling it up."
I followed him to the door. He barked, "No one touches my radio, or you all stay here for 'nother thousand years!"
I boarded the boat. I recognized a few spirits in the boat that died last summer. Holly, daughter of Ceres; John, son of Mars; Kaileigh, daughter of Venus; and one of my brothers, Aaron, son of Apollo. He asked me, "Is the was still going on?"
"No. It's finished. We won. It's been a several months."
The half-bloods in the boat cheered. Kaileigh said, "Wait, if the war's done, how come you're dead? Did you get on Lupa's bad side?"
John said, "How'd you die?"
I didn't want to talk about it, but they must have been bored, sitting in this boat for months. I said, "I got killed by Terra."
They stared at me in shock. I told them of the Second Great Prophecy, of the Greek Camp, and of Terra.
After I finished, Aaron said, "You're a great hero."
I smiled. Aaron had always been one of my favourite brothers. "Thanks."
"But," Holly said, "this Chiron person said you were one of the seven. How come you're dead?"
I thought about it. "He's probably mistaken."
Chiron said, "We're here."
The boat stopped, and my friends and I lined up in the Judgement line. John said that we deserved Elysium, 'cause we gave our lives for a good cause.
Holly went first.
We didn't know if she's gonna achieve Elysium or not. We're hoping to see her there, if we got there.
Next was Kaileigh, then John, then Aaron.
I said to my brother, "Good luck."
I was next.
I walked to the Judgement room. I saw William Shakespeare, King Minos, and Hercules.
They took one look at me. Hercules said, "Tell us how you died."
I told them of my fight with Terra.
William proclaimed, "She is worthy of Elysium!"
King Midas grunted.
Pluto appeared. He said, "Yes. She is worthy." He said it like he was bored.
I wondered how he can be here. I thought all the Olympians were locked up in Olympus.
It seemed that Pluto read my mind, he said, "Jupiter has allowed me to stay here, but he does not want me to contact ANY demigods."
He pointed to a door at the left. "Elysium. Go."
I walked to the door. I opened it, and saw the most beautiful place I have ever seen, even better than Camp Half-Blood.
Mansions from all eras lined the field. Heroes and too-good mortals were enjoying barbecue, sports, and other fun stuff.
Aaron was calling to me. He was with Holly, John, and Kaileigh. I ran to them, grinning.
John said, "We found some people we know!"
They led me to an area, filled with people.
I recognized people who died in the war.
Laura asked me, "Is it true you died in a fight with Terra?"
I said, "Yeah. But let's not talk about that."
And there I stayed.
Deep in my mind, I thought of the promise Percy made.
