YOU'D THINK, US BEING THE SEVEN MOST APPARENTLY GREATEST DEMI-GODS ALIVE WE WOULD OF GUESSED, THAT AN EMPOUSA WASN'T STUPID ENOUGH TO ATTACK ALONE. I think we all were thinking the exact same thing.
I managed to turn around, not really sure what lay ahead.
Of all the things I thought it could be I did not expect to see a bunch of bright blue giants, about thirty feet tall with grey frost hair. In their undies.
It looked like they'd just been pulled out of bed and chucked into the City.
The one closest to me had a longish beard covered in a light layer of ice. Bits of ice stuck to the lower part of his lips.
-" Hyperboreans. " muttered Frank, tilting his head back to get a good look. He stood so close to me one of his hand's kept brushing against mine. " Like the ones we saw in Alaska. " he added " But I thought they were peaceful.. "
It was true, we'd seen them while we were in the taxi, but they didn't pay any attention to us. Then before that, when I lived over there, they were everywhere like bears. Not once did they bother me, well once one almost stepped on me when I was walking him from school.
Their ice blue eyes glared down at us, as if we were the reason they were awake.
-" Duck " yelled Annabeth diving to the side. I saw what she was talking about, one giant standing closest to her and Piper had breathed a cloud of white mist towards them. I grabbed Frank by his tee shirt and jumped out of harms way.
Unfortunately for Frank, he crashed it to the dustbin.
The spot we had been just moments ago was now coated in a thick layer of ice, and to be honest the idea of being an ice sculpture was not on my 'to do' list.
Some giants had gotten bored with us and were now destroying the city. One smashed his fists into a parked car sending a group of girl scouts fleeing. Amused by the sudden outburst the giant started to advance towards the girls.
-" Over here you giant blue popsicle ! " yelled Percy stabbing him in the thigh. The giant literally froze. He turned to solid ice, before soon cracks appeared getting bigger and bigger, wider and wider. The Hyperborean then shattered into a billion blue pieces.
-" RAWWWR "
-" PEANUT BUTTER ! "
An arrow whizzed past my ear, jolting me to life.
-" Sorry !" Frank yelled over the roar of the giants and the destruction of the street. He shot another arrow this time not missing, it hit a giant in his forehead, he was confused enough to stare cross eyed at the arrow, Jason took this as an advantage and tucked and rolled in between his legs before stabbing him behind the knee. The giant shattered into pieces.
My whole body filled with pride, Frank was an amazing archer. He was so strong and brave, I mean he could morph into any animal he wanted. I pressed my jean pocket, where Frank's half burnt firewood was still securely wrapped. I had found myself checking it more and more, I just couldn't bear the thought of any harm coming to him, or if I lost the firewood, he'd never forgive me. I would never forgive myself.
-" Hazel, three o'clock ! " cried Leo swinging his hammer at a giant. Just as Piper stabbed into one with Katopris.
I turned to my right, but nothing was there. " I- errr mean 9 o'clock. " he corrected.
A smile crept to my lips, I turned to my right, half way down the street the biggest giant was picking up cars and swinging them around happily. Scared children and adults were bashing at the windows helplessly. " Remind me to teach you the time after this. " I shouted to him before sprinting away. I could hear him laugh behind me.
-" Need some help ? " asked Percy sprinting next to me, he was by far faster. His hair was blown backwards, revealing more of his handsome face. I mean that in a sisterly way.
I grinned at him, clutching my spathia tight, " Do you even need to ask ? "
We reached the giant, " Any ideas ? " I asked trying to keep from panting, I didn't want to ridiculous myself in front of Percy.
He swung his head around, as if the idea was hiding from him. " One. " Then he was gone, running towards a motorbike. He jumped on it, as if he'd done that a billion times before. The engine rumbled to life, he drove in circles around the giant.
He was taunting it.
The hairs on my neck stood up, I rolled to side, narrowly missing a car.
-" RAWWWR ! "
I checked the car, I sighed in relied when I realized it was empty. The giant with the beard - Beardy ran up to me jumping over the trees he'd ripped out. I swung my weapon at the creature, which just made him more mad. I could feel my hair freezing, the giant grinned evilly down at me. It swung a giant oak tree at me, but I tucked and rolled to safety. Making the tree spiral into a traffic light.
-" Frank ! " I yelled, dodging another strike. I prayed to every god, goddess, that he'd heard.
I dived out the way as the giant punched his fists to the ground again, creating craters in the road. The giant glared down at me, breathing heavily.
Then he shattered.
-" You okay ? " asked Annabeth, chest heaving. She had a small cut on her cheek but other than that she was fine.
-" You- you saved my life. " I managed. She helped me up glimpsing around.
-" Anytime. " she smiled. I grabbed her by her wrist and shoved her to the ground just as a piece of road came flying over our heads.
-" I guess now we're even ? " I asked, making her grin. She was breath takingly beautiful. In some ways she reminded me of Reyna. They had the same look in there eyes like Don't mess with me cause I'll kill you, and you know I can. Except Annabeth sometimes had a look of pure happiness, and it showed when she smiled, even if it was a quick one.
-" C'mon Ice Breath ! " Well, you probably think insulting an already mad giant about it's breath was not the smartest move. Well nobody told Percy that. It roared angry punching it's chest, gorilla style. He was still driving around the monster, who had left the cars and was trying to catch Percy. The victims who were in the vehicle scrambled out terrified screaming down their phones to the cops, I suppose.
Realizing everyone was okay he plummeted Riptide it to the monster who shattered. It's pieces slowly dissolving into dust. He then parked the bike in it's original place, before he, uh- borrowed it.
I started at the street, half the road was in pieces, trees were ripped out from the ground and were scattered everywhere. Cars were turned upside down, some side ways, some were even crushed. The closest café was a pile of rubble. Not quite sure what happened there. And I sure did not want to know.
A lump formed in my throat, was there some casualties ? Did anyone - No. You can't think that way, Hazel. Stay strong.
This may not be my home, so I couldn't even imagine what Percy must be feeling.
My home was Camp Jupiter, it was so different from Camp Half-Blood. Actually being at the Greek Camp made me realize how non-campy our camp looks and is, I mean it looks more like a military base than a camp. It was training non-stop no time to just relax, well now was not the time to relax with the hole Mother Earth deal.
Every greek seemed at ease, like they didn't know anything was wrong which was rididculous because they did. Annabeth told me they had to act mormal around the younger campers, stay strong for their sakes.
The only thing I felt was completly wrong was the the cabins. I didn't like them. I wouldn't like it, it would get lonely. It would just be me and Nico, if that with everything he gets up to.
The lump in my throat deepened at the thought of Nico.
-" Kelli's gone. " added Piper, making my happy feelings soar even higher " she must of fled while we were fighting. " I got the gut feeling this was not going to be the last time we saw her.
Annabeth scowled " Come on, we should leave before the cops get here. "
I couldn't help but feel somewhat responsible for what happened here. I guess you could say we accidently destroyed part of New York.
THANKS FOR READING !
I'LL UPDATE NEXT WEEKEND.
