I had woken up, got dressed, stuffed myself with pancakes, and shadow travelled to outside the Athena cabin. As soon as I was there, I knocked on the door. One of Annabeth's brothers opened the door.
"Hi DJ." he smiled. "Do you want to see Annabeth?"
"Yes please." I answered.
He lead me in, and over to Annabeth's desk. He grabbed a chair so that I could sit down. Annabeth looked up from her notes, and looked worried.
"What's wrong DJ?" she asked.
"Nico." I answered. "Do you know that new Gotham superhero? The one that works with Batman?"
"Yes." she answered. "Nightshade is so cool."
"She's me." I said.
Annabeth stared at me.
"You're Nightshade?" she asked.
"Yep." I answered. "But last night, Nico came to the Bat cave. I had to do a bit of magic, I was weak, and he thought I was dying. He tried to talk me back to camp. He forced me, but he started hurting me, so Batman and Batgirl got him off me. I told him to go home. I know he came back to camp, but I'm afraid to talk to him."
"We'll go get Percy, Piper and Jason." Annabeth suggested. "We can talk to Chiron. See what he thinks."
"Thank you so much." I said, hugging her.
"Let's go get everyone." she said, standing me up and leading me out of her cabin.
We walked a little way to the Aphrodite cabin, where Annabeth knocked on the door.
"Yes?" an Aphrodite girl asked.
"Can we see Piper?" Annabeth asked her.
"Sure." the girl smiled, before turning her head into the cabin. "Piper!"
After a few seconds, Piper appeared at the door.
"What's up?" she asked cheerfully.
"Nico's angry." Annabeth said unhappily.
"Let's go." she said, stepping out of her cabin and closing the door.
We then walked in silence to the Poseidon cabin, I felt slightly sick as we passed the Hades cabin.
When we reached the cabin and Annabeth knocked on the door.
"Seaweed Brain." She yelled at the door.
"Yes Wise Girl?" Percy asked opening the door.
"Death Breath's angry." she said.
"How bad?" he asked.
"Bad enough for DJ to come and ask me for help." she answered.
"Storm Boy?" he asked.
"Next stop." she answered.
We walked over the Zeus cabin, where Piper knocked on the door.
"Jason!" she yelled at the door.
"Hi Pipes." Jason said, opening the door and kissing her lightly on the cheek. "What's up?"
"Nico's angry at DJ." Piper said worridly.
"Oh." he realised. "That's bad."
"Yes Jason." she said, grabbing his hand. "Now let's go see Chiron."
As we walked up to the Big House, I felt safe knowing that the sixteen and seventeen year old demi-gods were trying to keep me safe. Who knows what my brother can do.
We found Chiron in the lounge room watching a news report.
...new superhero 'Nightshade' has been credited for her role in rescue of Dove Grayson. She was immediately rushed to Wayne Manor to be with her family.
"Hello children." Chiron smiled, turning off the T.V, and motioning for us to take a seat. "What can I do for you?"
"Nico's angry again." Annabeth said, taking a seat.
"Who's he angry at?" Chiron asked, looking worried.
"Me." I said sheepishly.
"What did you do?" he asked.
So again, I recounted what had happened last night. Chiron listened intently. Once I'd finished, he thought for a few seconds.
"How angry is he?" he asked.
"So angry that he wanted to take me back to camp and never let me leave." I said truthfully.
"Well, I shall talk to Nico for you." he said. "Stay with Percy for the rest of the day."
So I did. For the rest of the day, Percy and I went to his usual classes, and I enjoyed myself. It wasn't until four o'clock that Chiron wanted be back at the Big House. When I got there, Chiron was sitting in his wheelchair, in one of the many rooms, sitting with him was Nico. I walked in and sat down.
"You have done nothing wrong, DJ." Chiron said. "And you deserve an apology from Nico."
"Sorry DJ." Nico mumbled.
"You'd know one way or another if I was dying." I said. "My life force would be fading, and the shadows would leap out at you."
"I guess you're right." he smiled. "You should go back to Dick, he would be really worried by now."
"Thanks Nico." I said, standing up and walking into the shadows. "Thank you so much."
