Hi! Because of the success of my fic Trapped! I decided to write a sequel using even more characters! Edith and Agnes are from the Despicable Me films. Isaac is from Tfios, if anyone was wondering.
I own nothing. Enjoy!
Rapunzel, Hermione, Isaac, Tobias, Gale, Nico, Edith and Coco remaining.
I thought all of my worries were over when Harry killed Voldemort. Apparently not. I am stuck in a rickety wooden cage with a bunch of strangers, and there's no way out. The cage is being slowly levered up the side of a tower, held by a single rope and I am hit with a wave of terror every time there is a bump.
There is a girl standing next to me with long blonde hair. When I say long, I mean about 70ft. It is woven through the bars around us to keep it from trailing all the way to the ground. She is clinging to the rotting wood and staring up at the tower with a look of terror on her face.
There are three boys standing across from us that look around our age. One of them has dark hair and sunken eyes. One of them has brown hair and grey eyes. He looks like he works out. The last one is skinny and has floppy blonde hair with a pair of sunglasses.
I look down to see two girls. One of them looks about twelve and has messy brown hair that looks like she's been dragged through a hedge backwards, fallen out of a tree or possibly both. Her jeans are torn and muddy and she is wearing a faded green t-shirt that says "Peace for Pandas!" She must be a animal lover.
The other girl is wearing a pink hat which covers most of her hair, but I can see a little bit of blonde peeking out at the back. Apart from the hat, she is clothed entirely in black. I'm pretty sure that I can see a sword hanging from her side too. In fact, she looks like a mini ninja.
"What's going?" On says the long-blonde.
"No idea." I shrug. "I'm Hermione Granger, by the way."
"I'm Rapunzel." says the long-blonde.
"Gale." Says the boy with grey eyes. He looks at me hard. "What District are you from?"
"Don't you mean Faction?" Asks the other dark haired boy.
They begin to argue and my mind races as I try to recall when I've heard the words "Districts" and "Faction" before.
"You two are book characters!" I gasp. Rapunzel's mouth drops open.
"You're Hermione. From the Harry Potter books!" It's my turn to be shocked. Books? The twelve year old girl leans forwards.
"Hermione? You're smart. What's Hogwarts like?" Her eyes have that glint of curiosity that I usually associate with Ravenclaws like Luna.
"That doesn't matter right now." I say firmly. "What's your name?"
"Coco." She looks disappointed, but I can't do anything about that. I look across at the boys.
"Four." I'd figured that one out anyway. I look at the other one, who stares out to sea, oblivious.
"What's your name?" I ask. He doesn't answer, but looks around to hear the answer. Realisation dawns on his face.
"Were you talking to me?"
"Yes." I sigh impatiently. It annoys me when people don't pay attention.
"Oh, I'm Isaac. I'm blind, just so you know." I bite my lip, immediately feeling guilty. What's the saying, never judge a book by it's cover? I just did...
"I'm Edith." I'd forgotten about the little girl, but she's there, swinging her sword from hand to hand.
"Put the sword away." This is a completely new voice and I spin round to see a boy in the corner of the cage. My first thought is that he's emo. Then I kick myself for judging someone by their appearance.
He has raven hair and almost black eyes that seem to tunnel straight into whoever he is looking at. Rapunzel stumbles backwards when he fixes his gaze on her. The shadows seem to cling to him and I feel like I'm in the prescence of a dementor.
Edith takes a step towards him, still swinging her sword. "Why?"
"Just do it."
"No. Who are you?"
"I'm Nico di Angelo, Son of Hades." I give a squeak. Hades? The Greek god of the dead?
When Edith makes no movement to put away the sword, Nico pulls out his own. It's made of some sort of black metal and its mere presence makes me shiver. Edith is unfazed.
It happens so quickly that I don't see who lunged first, but suddenly they are locked in combat. To my surprise, it is evenly matched. Nico has the height advantage, but Edith is faster, dodging blows and stabbing Nico's feet. Coco leans forwards in excitement, but me and Rapunzel pull her back. Edith suddenly throws all of her weight into a move and slams Nico's sword out of his hand.
It skids across the floor and teeters on the edge of the cage. Nico lunges, but it tilts past the point of no return and falls, cartwheeling into nothingness. Then, the clouds clear and we see a figure looking up.
"LOOK OUT!" Nico yells down. The figure dives out of the way. "Percy?"
Edith points her sword at Nico threateningly.
"Who are your parents?" He asks. She stops dead.
"I-I don't know..." She looks at him defensively. "I'm an orphan."
Nico looks up above her head and gives a wry smile. I follow his gaze and my jaw drops. Above Edith's head is a glowing hologram. A blazing spear.
"All hail Edith, Daughter of Ares."
Okay, that was waaaay to long, the cage would have reached the top by about half-way through it. Anyways, THANK YOU for any reviews for the last story and I hope you enjoy this one!
