Disclaimer: I do not own PJ&O, I do own the kids though! NO TOUCHY...well, awkward.
After their announcement, we packed up to go to the next room. Where the Stone of Life is. My back didn't hurt much, there was a large bruise on it, but I don't mind. All five of us got ready as the wall in front of us opened to the next room. When it opened I saw three people and a couple of scary-looking skeleton soldiers. The three people turned around. Two were girls, and one was a boy. One girl had short blond hair and gray eyes, the other had black hair and brown eyes they both looked about fourteen. The boy had longish black hair and dark eyes, he looked fourteen, too. They looked at us with pure hate.
"What are you doing here?!" The boy yelled.
I glared at him, "The question is what are you doing here?" I asked quietly.
His chuckled. "Well, it's pretty obvious isn't it?" he said.
I sighed dramatically, "Evil kids these days" I muttered, loud enough that everyone could hear me.
The boy glared at me and Zack shot an arrow going right by the boy's ear. The boy winced. "Looks like someone is scared of arrows" Oliver said.
The skeletons raised their spears. The girls by the boy's side raised their swords, I raised mine, too. The boy didn't raise his though because he doesn't have one. I saw Zack smirk, "Looks like he doesn't have a weapon" Zack teased.
I giggled, just to make the boy mad. And it worked! His face got red and he glared at us. He did some type of motion and the skeletons and girls attacked us. I saw the boy run out of a passageway. I can't let him get away! I raised my sword and one of the girls attacked me.
I blocked her hit with my sword. I slashed at her, and she blocked. Then, her sword made contact with my arm and a three-inch cut appeared on my forearm. I got angry and pushed her back with my magic. She quickly got up and tripped me with her foot. I fell on my back, hit it hard and making me wince. An arrow appeared at her leg and she went down. I knocked her sword away and ran to where Zack was because he was getting cornered my skeletons. Luna and Tyler was battling three skeletons and Oliver was fighting the other girl. I sliced one of the skeletons spears in half as it raised it to hit Zack. He gave me a look that said thank you, and we fought the skeletons together. The cut the girls did on my arm was bleeding, but I had other worries. My back was hurting a lot and I can't do anything about it without getting killed by these skin-less monsters.
"Go!" Yelled Zack
I glanced at him, "What?" I yelled back
I blocked a skeletons strike, "Go to the boy! He has the Stone of Life!" he yelled.
I hesitated, then nodded. I ran through the passageway the boy had gone through. I quickly ran through the hallway and it led to a door. When I opened it, a blind white light flashed in my eyes. I adjust my eyes to the natural light and saw the boy running. I ran after him, and he looked behind him and saw me. And he smiled?! I used my magic to pick him up and threw him back to the direction of the door. He landed on the ground groaning. I ran and stopped a few feet in front of him with my sword ready. He looked at me and grinned. He put a purplish thing in his pocket. The Stone!
He took something else out and it turned into a sword! I gasped and he laughed at my surprised face. "Never seen that before? Is that how dumb you are?" He said.
I tried controlling my anger, seeing that he had the stone. He grinned at my angry face. "Give me the stone" I said. I have to admit, I sounded pretty scary.
He laughed. "I'm not giving up that easily" he said and charged at me.
I raised my sword and his collided with mine, sending me back a few feet. He hit his sword with mine and I winced. A spark came out of my sword as ours collided again. I managed to make a good-sized cut on his shoulder. He attacked me with more force. He was good, and I was afraid that he was better than me. He grinned and he knocked away my sword, leaving me weaponless. He grabbed my face.
"You could make a great addition to our little..ah, group" he said.
I kicked him somewhere boys don't like to be kicked. He recoiled slightly and groaned. I swiftly ran to my sword and pushed hit backwards with my magic, making him fall. I charged at him, but he knew what I would do and quickly swung his leg around, making me fall on my back again. I cried out in pain, it felt like it was bleeding now. He grinned. Again.
"You have a weak spot" He said and pushed his sword towards my heart. I rolled over at the last minute and pushed him with my foot, he staggered as I stood up wincing.
He glared at me. Our swords collided and he met my eyes. His eyes widened then went back to normal and pushed me harder. I took his arm and kicked him in the stomach. He doubled-over, unable to breath. I took the time to eat a small square of ambrosia. I felt a little better, but not completely. He regained composure and charged at me. I noticed he had a necklace that said: Carlos, so that's his name. He kicked my leg, making new found pain enter me. I cried out again, and silently cursed myself for being so darn vulnerable. He grinned as he went in a battle stance. I could see he looked pained, I hurt him good. I noticed he was backing me off to the cliff a few feet behind me. I slid around him so he was facing the cliff. He scowled at me. He charged at me, but I blocked with my sword and cut his ankle. I widened my eyes as I saw that he was backing up to the cliff.
"Wait-stop!" I yelled.
It was too late. His foot slid and he went falling backwards. I screamed at he he free-fell down he cliff. I did something very stupid then. I jumped down after him. I went straight down, like an arrow, so I can go faster. His eyes were wide with fear. I stretched out my hand for him to take and grabbed it. I concentrated on making myself levitate. I felt myself stopping. I pulled Carlos up and he wrapped his arms around my waist making me blush a little. Why am I blushing?! I helping an evil guy! I should be happy he almost died! I sighed, knowing I can't stand to see people die. I took the sword from his hand and threw it down below so he won't try and kill me.
I got to the top of the cliff and dropped him ruffly on the hard ground. He landed with a pained groan and turned on his side. I sat down and panted. That took up a lot of energy. I heard the door from the cave open and Zack ran to me and gave me some nectar. I drank it and felt better.
I stood up and looked at Jason. "I kind of just saved his life" I said to Zack.
Zack stared at me. "You what?!" He yelled.
I winced. "I pushed him off the cliff! I couldn't kill him! I wouldn't live with myself if I killed a half-blood! He's probably brainwashed or something! Now if you excuse me, I have to get the Stone!" I yelled and walked to Carlos angrily.
I turned him and searched his pocket. I felt something hard and a paper. The paper was...a picture. Of a little girl that looked exactly like him. I put the picture back feeling a little sad, and took out the hard thing. The stone. I looked at it more closely. I took out the necklace it goes on. I heard Carlos groan and rolled my eyes. I put the Stone of Life onto it's proper place on the necklace...it fit perfectly! I stood up and it glowed. I heard a click as it locked into place. I ran to Zack and showed it to him.
"We have to destroy it" I said.
Zack looked at me as if I was crazy. "Why?" he asked.
"The prophecy said it has to be destroyed" I explained.
He nodded. "How?" He asked.
I shrugged, "By a-" I stopped because a dagger appeared by my foot. I picked it up slowly. It was completely white. And yet, it was glittering in the rising sun. Zack and looked at it in awe.
"I guess by that. Never hurts to try" he said.
I looked at the necklace, then at the dagger. I put the necklace on the floor and positioned the dagger right above it. I closed my eyes and stabbed the stone right in the middle. I was pushed back a little, landing on my behind. Zack was pushed against the wall, and Carlos was rolled over a bit. I opened my eyes and saw that the Stone of Life was broken in the middle and looked black, not purple. Light came from it and cracks went all over the necklace and it broke into pieces. I gaped at the broken necklace.
"That worked" I heard Oliver say, making me jump.
I slapped him and breath out a laugh. "Gods you scared me" I said.
He grinned, "I scared you? Your the one jumping off cliffs" He stated.
I rolled my eyes. Tyler and Luna came running from the cave door. I looked at them all of them curiously. "What happened back there?" I asked.
Luna grinned, "I kind of, almost, drown the evil creatures" She said.
Tyler laughed, "Yeah, it looked kind of scary, too" He said.
I smiled, only my friends. I stood up and Zack picked up the broken pieces of the necklace. He threw it over the cliff and we watched it fall down until we had to strain our eyes. I looked back at Carlos and leaned down next to him. I felt for a heartbeat. It was normal and so was his breathing, he had passed out though. Luna sat down next to me.
"What happened?" She whispered, as if he could hear her.
"He fell off the cliff, I got him back up. I think he's doing this for his sister." I said. Everyone stared at me. I sighed and took the picture out of his pocket and showed them the little girl. "I think they have her captive or something." I muttered
"It's possible" I heard Tyler say.
I thought for a moment. "Do we bring him to Camp Half-blood?" I asked, quietly.
"I vote yes, Chiron will want to speak to him" Luna said. I looked at Tyler and Oliver. Tyler shrugged and Oliver rolled his eyes. I took that as a yes.
"So to camp" I said, I felt Arrow boy touch my arm. I turned to him. "What?" I said.
He sighed and pulled me out of hearing range of the rest. I crossed my arms. "Hecate sent me" He said.
I nodded, "I know, you told us already. You're here as my 'protector'" I said.
"Yeah, and she also wanted me to ask you something" He stopped, thinking I was going to interrupt. I stared at him and he continued. "She wanted me to asked you if you wanted to train with her. To become successful enchantress."
My eyes widened. "My mom wants me to train with her?" I said, my voice barely audible. He nodded. Wow, this is so cool! Then, I frowned. Remembering Oliver, Luna and Tyler. "But what about..." my voice trailed off. I walked to my friends sadly. Luna looked at me weirdly.
"What happened?" She asked quietly.
I looked at the ground. "My mom. She wants me to go with her and train" I muttered.
No one said anything. I looked at me friends. Luna was looking at the ground sadly, Tyler had found interest at the sky and Oliver was staring at me. Luna opened her mouth to talk, but then closed it again.
"You should go." Tyler finally said. I looked at him. "This is a big opportunity. You'll get to see us whenever, but this might be the only time your mom will call out to you" he said.
I looked at him, close to tears and ran to hug him. I shut my eyes hard so I wouldn't cry. "He's right" I heard Luna say.
Luna pulled me from Tyler and hugged me tight. I pulled away a few moments later and looked at Oliver. "Why haven't you said anything?" I asked, quietly. I glanced at Luna and Tyler they moved away so Oliver and I could have some space.
He put his hands in his pockets. "Because I don't want you to leave" he said. I stared at him, I was really close to tears. "But, Tyler was right. This is a good opportunity"
I felt my face go hot. "So you want me to go?" I said. He nodded. "Does this mean we're over?" I asked, he looked a little taken back.
"I guess so" He responded, his voice showing no emotion.
I walked slowly to him and hugged him, I felt his arms wrapped around me. The comfortable warmth making me want to stay in that position. I felt hot tears make it's way through my eyes. I pulled away and quickly wiped them away. I stepped back. "So, I guess I'm going" I said.
Luna and Tyler tackled me in a group hug. I laughed as we struggled to stand. I think Luna was crying. I looked at Carlos, who was still on the ground. "You guys are taking him?" I said.
They nodded. "How are you going to get there?" I asked.
Right then, as if on cue, two beautiful Pegasus flew over to us. One I recognized as Blackjack. Luna laughed as if the Pegasus told her a joke. The other one was pure white and flew gracefully. It landed next to me and put it's face on my hand. I smiled and touched it's face. This reminded me of when Oliver and I went flying on Blackjack. I looked at him, he was avoiding my eyes, I frowned.
"Blackjack says he was sent by my father, and Angel here was sent by Poseidon." Luna said.
I smiled, "Thank you, Poseidon" I said. The wind went stronger for a second, then back to normal. I guess Poseidon was saying your welcome.
Luna gave me one last look and hopped on Blackjack. Tyler picked up Carlos with Oliver's help and they all got up on Blackjack. He didn't seem to mind the weight. They all waved to me and Oliver gave me a little smile. Then, Luna said something and off Blackjack went. I stared after them sadly and Blackjack did a circle in the air and headed south. I looked back at Zack.
"I guess we have to leave now, Arrow boy" I said.
He grinned, "I thought you forgot about that nickname" he said.
I rolled my eyes, "Never" I teased.
I climbed on the Pegasus that was named Angel. I stocked it's mane as Zack got on her, too. He sat behind me and readied himself. "Where to, Arrow boy?" I asked.
He thought for a moment. "London, it's a long way. It's the largest mountain there" he said.
Angel immediately ran off the cliff and spread it's beautiful wings and flapped. We went upwards and I could see Niagara Falls we behind where we were at. It reminded me of the guy who gave me his number, which I still have in my jacket pocket. Nate, that's his name. I sighed as my hair moved from my face, and the wind dried the sweat on my head. I glanced back at Zack.
"What time is it?" I asked him.
He looked at a watch I never noticed he had on. "Five in the morning" he yelled over the wind.
I nodded. We were in the caves for that long? I felt myself getting tired. My eyelids got heavy and I slow drifted off to sleep. I made a promise to myself. I will go back to camp. Someday, maybe not in a few months, maybe not in a year. But I will come back. I'll stay with my mom, visit my dad someday, and return to my wonderful friends. I promise. And I fell asleep against Zack, awaiting what was going to happen next.
