RICK RIORDAN WHYYYYYY? That's all I gotta say about that. Please tell me, am I the only one who cried at the end of the Mark of Athena?! Com'on! They were just reunited! Grr... So to fill up my free time until the next book, The House of Hades. And I have to wait untill next fall for it?! And the Kane Chronicles are done... ( D': ) Oh well, I'll just re-read all the other books again...
Why couldn't Percy get a break? He's been going on quests since he was 12. He should be on Vacation right now, on a beach or something. But that was the life of a normal kid. Instead, he was in Tartarus, he'd fell in Tartarus how long ago? Minutes? Hours? Weeks? Years?
Percy just couldn't remember. He felt claustrophobic, but Tartarus spread for miles infront of him. He heard Annabeth screaming, but she was right next to him. She had a blank expression just as he did. Percy looked up. It looked like they had fallen miles atleast. Their bodies should've just went splat.
Percy couldn't feel a thing. And most of all, he was confused. Some of the worst and most evil gods should be down here. He couldn't hear a thing.
The confused Son of Posideon looked into his girlfriend's eyes. " Shouldn't there be like- Kronos down here or something?"
Annabeth returned the same confused gaze. " I don't know. I hear spiders, but I can't see them. We shouldv'e ben attacked or dead by now. I'm just confused..."
Tartarus some hoe made him think of Tartar sauce, the gross one at applebee's. But even out of all the odd things, Percy didn't feel hungry.
Above Percy was a woman who shone so bright, he had to cover his eyes. She was pale and bony, and she had alot of wrinkles. It reminded him of a grandma who got ahold of a thousand L-E-D lights.
" Newcomers..." She croaked.
" Uh yeah, we were just walking through and we got lost-"
"-And we were wondering if you could maybe show us the door out of here?" finished Annabeth.
" There is no way out." replyed the shinning grandmother.
Great, now Annabeth and I are gonna go insane. I bet we're gonna met a cat that's on fire next." Percy thought.
" Your Phoebe, the Titan of the moon." Said Annabeth.
" Exactly, my brothers and sisters and I have all been suffering down here for 1,564,7856,986,480 years, 3 weeks, 3 days, and 8 hours. "
Annabeth glanced at me as If she were saying Percy, I don't like this woman, we should go.
I nodded my head in response. I pulled out the pen in my pocket. " Look we need no harm Phoebe, we're just gonna walk away."
As if I were in an extremely scary rated R movie, Phobe formed into a freaky looking zombie/ghost thing. And Annabeth didn't have her weapon. But worst part was, they couldn't die. Percy could though.
" Annabeth! Take cover!" Percy yelled as he uncapped riptide.
And that's when the grandma zombie and her friends attacked him.
