Quote of the Day: Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken- Oscar Wilde
Book of the Day: The Hunger Pains by the Harvard Lampoon. FUNNIEST BOOK IN THE WORLD! It is a parody to the Hunger Games! It's all about Kantkiss Neverclean, who is forced to take her sister, Princess's place in the Hunger Games, a fight to the death. The only way she may survive is if she convinces the everyone that she is in love Pita Malarkey, a very, very, VERY fat klutz. Between her mentors Buttich Totalapathy and Effu Poorpeople (HAHA) and Cinnabon, she does not know what to do. The Capitol sure isn't the telemarketing District 12 she calls home. ***** Five stars. Quick easy read. Sci-fy/parody/romance!
Jason fell into a fitful sleep after that. He barely remembered getting to his makeshift room and falling down head first onto to mattress.
But at least he had a good night sleep, right?
As his eyes closed, Jason was immediately sucked into a horrible nightmare. He was in Rome, at the Basilica Nova, next to the pit which Eurymedon would rise out of, full of power, tomorrow. Jason could barely think about it without getting a headache.
Surrounding the pit was an army of monsters. There were Cyclopes , centaurs , basilisks, spiders, werewolves, and daemons. They were chanting in some old language. They stomped and farted in rhythm.
Eurymedon's voice rose from the pit, along with fog and acid. "The Olympians and demigods will never see it coming. And we have our secret weapons. The Camps do not stand a chance!"
Before Jason could what the secret weapons were, everything went black.
Once he woke up, he was off of his mattress and in the hallway, on his back, drool dripping down his chin. Then he heard yelling. It was coming from above him, up on the deck.
"Quit pestering me about it, Beauty Queen!" That was Leo, and Jason could guess that he was yelling at Piper.
"Well, if you would quit calling me Beauty Queen, maybe I would leave you alone, Repair Boy."
"Okay then, Pageant Princess, I won't call you that!"
Jason made his way up to the deck just in time to see Leo get slapped in the face by Piper. Piper's face was red with anger, and Leo was red from the slap. It was about midday.
"What is going on with you two?" demanded Jason, sizing them both up.
They both let out annoyed sounds and stalked away from each other. Jason got the feeling that he was never going to find out why they were mad at each other. But they would get over it soon. Jason rolled his eyes and went back below deck. He needed to talk to Percy.
He went down to his room, which looked exactly like his own. Percy was in there, on his bed, dead in sleep. He drooled even more the Jason. There was a puddle, a giant puddle, next to his head, and his mouth was wide open, catching flies. His black hair was sticking up in the back, then matted down with swear in the front. He kept mumbling words in Ancient Greek. Even though Jason had been at Camp Half-Blood for months, he still hadn't learned any Greek.
"Hey, Percy," whispered Jason, moving into his room. "Wake up." He shook his shoulder gently.
And then he got a fist in the face.
The pain was immediate. A string of curses escaped his mouth. His hand flew to his nose and gripped it. "Gods!" he yelled and slammed his other hand against the wall. He felt a small bit of blood, not too much though.
"I'm gonna kill you, Eurymedon!" growled Percy, swinging at air. "Take that! And that!"
"You idiot," said Jason. He walked out of the room and into Annabeth's, which was just across the hallway.
"Annabeth, you in here?" asked Jason, pushing open the door. She was in there. She was sitting up on her mattress, her legs folded Indian style. Her eyes were closed, and she was breathing deeply.
"Are you meditating?" asked Jason in disbelief. He didn't expect an answer, but Annabeth responded, "Do you have a problem with that?"
"No," he replied hastily. "I just didn't know that."
She sighed deeply and opened her eyes. She cracked her neck and fell backwards on the mattress, letting her legs fly up into the air. "What do you want?"
"Your boyfriend just punched me in the face because I was trying to wake him up. He thought I was Eurymedon. Will you help me wake him up?"
"Why do you need to talk to him?"
"Something bad is going to happen, and I need to tell him. You're free to hear about it too."
"Okay then." She jumped up and walked into his room, Jason following.
She walked right up to Percy and said, "Wake up!" He lashed out, but Annabeth caught his wrist and threw it back down on the bed. "Sorry." She hit him in the face. Hard.
"This day has just been full of slapping," mumbled Jason.
Percy's eyes snapped open. "Ow!" He looked back and forth between Jason and Annabeth, and then kept his eyes trained on his girlfriend. "What was that for?"
"I didn't want to Seaweed Brain. You punched Jason when he tried to wake you up, so he asked me to slap you."
"I did not!" he protested. "I asked you to help me wake him up. Not to slap him."
"And why did you want me awake? We still have a ways to go before we get to Rome!" Percy looked like he was ready to fall asleep again.
Annabeth chuckled. "You still drool."
"Huh?" Percy quickly wiped it away.
"I had a pretty bad dream," admitted Jason. He described the dream as best as he could. A shadow seemed to spread across their faces. Whatever the giant was planning, Jason knew it was going to be bad.
"This is not good." Percy looked extremely nervous. "We need to Iris message the Camps." He ran up to the top deck, and Jason and Annabeth bolted after them.
Everyone up there was eating cereal. Leo and Piper were sitting as far away from each other as possible. Frank and Hazel were up there sitting back to back and eating Honey Bunches of Oats.
"What's wrong?" asked Hazel, seeing the look on Jason's face.
Jason didn't reply, just followed Percy to the edge of the ship. Percy snapped his fingers, and a salty spray of water shot up from the sea. The sun made a rainbow in the water.
Percy reached into the pocket of his jeans and pulled out a golden drachma. "Oh, Iris, Goddess of the Rainbow, please accept my offering." Percy tossed the drachma into the mist.
The mist spit it back out.
"What?" Percy was dumbfounded. "That's never happened before."
Percy repeated himself and threw the coin. This time, the coin fell into the sea below them.
"What's going on?"
"I think I know," said Annabeth softly. "Didn't Calypso say that Iris was one of their allies?"
"Yeah," said Jason. Then it struck him. "I get it now. Eurymedon has people attacking her. He doesn't want the Camp's communicating. He'll do anything to stop us."
"He seems desperate." Percy sounded like he was trying to joke around, but it didn't help.
Jason walked away at that point. He hated the fact that he couldn't help his family.
Jason stopped abruptly. "The only thing we can do is get to Rome before they can leave for the Camps."
"You're right," said Annabeth. She went up to Leo and grabbed to front of his shirt, causing cereal to spill all over him. Piper laughed. "Leo, how fast can this ship go?"
"Um, I don't know. This is pretty much as fast as it can go."
"Make it go faster!"
"Okay, ma'am." He saluted with difficulty. Annabeth pushed him back. She walked away mumbling, "This is not good, this is so not good!"
Jason flopped to the ground and rubbed his face. Suddenly he smiled and looked and Piper and Leo. "So, when are you two going to tell me what you were fighting about?"
They both grunted and turned around. Jason grinned. He just loved his friends. They had the coolest way of brightening his crappy life.
Wow, how pointless! Haha!
