This is . . . MY SEQUAL TO MY SEQUAL, LOST AND FOUND SECRETS! YAY! And it's called . . . Forever and Always! SO one with the story . . .
We were in a motel. A week earlier, we ran away from camp. Artemis was still searching for us. We were still trying to figure out what we were going to do. We were very confused. And that is an understatement.
"Let's go to the pool." Kiki suggested.
I smiled, "Kiki . . ."
"Yes, I get it. We shouldn't. But, hel-lo! We're in a friggin' motel! It's like, one story tall and there's a pool. It's really quiet and calm and-"
"Too quiet." I said in that funny ominous tone.
We all laughed.
"Okay, fine. Now who wants to go tell the boys?" I asked, refering to the boys in the room next door.
"I will!" Juliet said, jumping up.
"Alright." Kiki said, tossing us our suits.
Mine was an aqua-colored striped bikini. Juliet's was just like mine except in red wave-like things. Kiki's was nearly the same except in leaf green and polka dots.
Juliet ran out of the room and knocked really loudly on the door. More like banging. One of the boys opened the door right when Juliet was still banging. She banged him right in the face. He fell backwards with a thump. We ran out into the hall to see him sprawled on the floor, clutching his nose. It was James. Juliet immediately ran to him and appologized, over and over again. All the rest of us burst out into spasms of laughter.
"Okay," I said through laughter, "Let's change and head to the pool."
"Yeah," Kiki said, laughing.
So we went and changed into our suits and headed to the pool. When we got there, I ran and jumped in. I looked around underwater. Everything was so different underwater. So . . . beautiful. So . . . wonderful. It was an aquatic world of wonder. I loved it.
Finally, I surfaced just as I saw something dark land right next to me and splash me. It looks like they were waiting just right when I surfaced just so they could splash me. The quote on quote, "Aqua Gal". You know, kinda like, Aqua Man except like, totally different, like a girl version.
Then the person resurfaced. I scowled. It was Ben.
"Oh, c'mon, Andie, don't be like that." Ben said, kissing me.
My eyes narrowed and I pulled away.
"Why are you-"
"Oh, just shut up, Dead Boy." I said, kissing him.
I pulled away too early.
"Okay, then, playing hard to get I see." he said and splashed me in the face with water.
I giggled and brought half of the water from the pool up in the air and let it splash down in his face. When it all cleared up, he was choking on water. I smiled and forced the water out of his mouth. He was breathing hard and gagging after that.
"What the Hades?" he yelled.
I rolled my eyes, "Oh don't be so melodramatic, Dead Boy."
"Oh what do you care, anyway? All you would do is go to your grandfather's domain." I rolled my eyes.
"You almost killed me!" he yelled in my face.
I didn't flinch back an inch. I didn't even move as he yelled.
"Oh, don't be a little girl, Jen." I said, calling him his girl name that I made up for him.
He fumed. I just rolled my eyes and dove into the water.
He grabbed my ankle and yanked me up to the surface. I grabbed his wrist and twisted it in a weird position. He yelped in pain.
"Don't grab me again." I said and twisted harder. Then I dove back in.
Then I saw four more bodies splash into the water. I resurfaced and splashed them all. We were all giggling, well the girls and the guys were just laughing. But still, it's basically the same thing.
"So . . ." Kiki began.
"So . . ." Juliet continued.
"So . . ." another voice said.
We all looked up and saw a blonde chick and another brunette girl. Beside then walked three other guys. I scrunched my eyebrows together.
"Hello," the blonde girl said.
"Wh-who are you?" I asked.
"I am Jenette." The brunette said, "This blonde, right here, is Chloe and these are our other friends. This black haired boy, right here is my boyfriend, Patrick. The brown haired hotti-I mean dude," Jenette said when she saw her boyfriend giving her a look, "is Joe. Joe is Chloe's boyfriend. And the blonde guy, AKA, the blonde HOTTIE is Colin." she said, ignoring Patrick's look and then whispered, "Look out ladies, he's single." then she wiggled her eyebrows
I smiled to myself. I noticed Ben shifting uncomfortably across the pool. I then saw Colin eyeing me carefully and smiling. I smiled back widely. But then something grabbed me around the waist and someone rested their head on my shoulder. It was Ben.
"What are you doing?" I asked through my teeth.
"You're my girlfriend." he said.
"Oh really? Is that why you yell in my face, get furious with me all the time and hurt me over and over again? So, please, tell me if I'm wrong, but this is what happens all the time now. So . . . I think we should take a break." I said, taking a sigh at the end.
"What?" he asked, recalling those last words.
"I said I think we should take a break." I whispered, repeating the words.
"Wha-why?" he asked, his voice shaking.
"I'm sorry Ben but that little rant two minutes ago just helped me to make up my mind." I said, my voice shaking like his.
"B-but I'm sorry." he said. Right there, I realized that he was willing to do anything. Anything to change my mind.
"No," I said, unwinding his arms from my waist, "you should've thought of that before."
And just before he could argue or any tears fell, I dove into the water and went to the deep end that went as deep as nine feet. I sat down there, my back against the edge, crying underwater. It was impossible to tell what I was doing even if you were underwater too. After a few minutes, I resurfaced, wiping away every last tear.
"Hey, An!" Kiki called to me, "These guys are demigods too!" she nearly screamed. Juliet clamped her hand over Kiki's mouth along with the help of Jenette.
"Oh really? And you're the daughter of . . . ?" I asked curiously.
"I am a daughter of Alathea, a minor goddess, the goddess of truth. Which also means that I cannot tell a lie. Chloe is a daughter of Nyx, the goddess of the night, yet another minor goddess. Joe's mother is Hemera, which is really funny because Hemera's the goddess of daylight and the sun and stuff, while Chloe's mother, Nyx is the goddess of the night and Joe and Chloe are dating. So . . . yeah. Oh and Colin is the son of Erebos, god of the darkness and shadow so you know, he's like, really hard to find at times. He can also shadow travel like any other decendant of Hades. And last but not least, my boyfriend, Patrick is the son of Apollo, the only major god in our group of people. So . . . yeah, you met the group." Jenette said, "Oh and call me Jenna."
"Okay, Jenna," I said slowly, "I think you should come with us. We're much more experienced than you. No offense, but it is true. We've had all the experience, all the training, all the-"
But I was cut off by bickering.
"Where the Hades are they, Kevin and Blake? You guys are the ones who came up with this friggin' stowaway plan! We've been hiding out in those luggage bags forever!" said a voice that sounded a lot like Karalynn's.
"Hey, guys, just calm down! Seleste is getting scared! We'll find them." said another voice that sounded a whole lot like Seth's.
Then sure enough, there walked in five children that looked a whole lot like aunt Thalia and uncle Nico's older children and my older siblings, Karalynn and Seth.
"KARALYNN LEEANNE JACKSON! What the HADES are you doing here!" I yelled and got out of the pool.
"Oh, hey, sissy. Wha-what's up?" my sister said in a shaky, high voice.
"You are beyond dead!" I yelled and grabbed her arm and pulled her over to the side.
"I-well-we stowed away in the luggage cases. Gods, James is so dense. He totally shouldn't have had five extra bags. And, at that, five extra bags that weigh nearly his weight. I mean, seriously. And you always kept leaving me behind! You never ever let me go with you anywhere! So we stowed away! What difference does it make?" she complained.
"The difference is that-"
"Oh and Artemis said, 'You're next.'" she said, quoting and cutting me off.
"What?" my eyes narrowed at that.
"She said, and I quote, 'You're next'."
"Oh," I said.
"Oh and Seleste is really scared of doing stuff like this. She's such a goody-two shoes." Kara said, rolling her eyes.
"Oh, c'mon! I was just like her! I was quiet." I admitted.
"Oh, so that's where she got it from." Kara muttered.
"Excuse me?" I nearly yelled.
"Nothin'," she responded.
"Oh and what's with Seleste and Seth?" I asked.
"Oh, they're dating. Seleste is always so scared and Seth's always there to put an arm around her and 'comfort her'." Kara said, putting quotation marks around 'comfort her'.
I smiled to myself. It's so cute. Seth's like four years younger than me. Seleste is like this small, twelve year old sweetie. She's got very unique hair in her family. She's got blonde hair. She got it from Thalia's mother. Her hair is long, down to her waist with abundant curls. She's got blue eyes and she has such a pale face. Her smile is very common and when she does smile, it gives her cute dimples. She's like a cute little girl. She's so sweet. The only thing about her is that she's quiet, she acts who she looks, she's small so she acts small. She's shy and isn't as brave as she could look at times. She just . . . she's just different. But luckily, she's got friends, in her case, a boyfriend, and she's also got siblings that can help her through anything.
I walked off and canon-balled into the pool, splashing everyone and I told the girls.
