My Constant Challenge

Okay. This is a story cross-over for the Underland Chronicles and Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Told from Percy's view. By the way, I OWN NONE OF THIS!

Chapter 1- I Discover the Underland

"Uhhh," I moaned. I didn't want to get up. It was a Saturday but my mom kept telling me to wake up, it was almost time to go to the park with Annabeth.

I had forgotten about my date with Annabeth in Central Park at 11:30. I looked at my alarm clock. I literally jumped when I saw the time: 11:20. I wasn't usually one to sleep in.

I quickly took a shower and scarfed down some Cheerios. I looked at the clock in our living room and it was 11:25. That would give me just enough time to walk there.

When I had walked there and greeted Annabeth, I instantly saw something I had never noticed before: a large boulder in a cement wall in the middle of Central Park.

Annabeth saw it, too. She asked me, "Have you ever seen that before?"

"No," I replied honestly.

"What should we do?" whispered my girlfriend.

"Let's go in," I suggested.

"Whatever."

We tiptoed suspiciously towards the rock and waited until everyone was gone. I pried it open with Riptide. We were instantly swallowed up by darkness.

Suddenly, I saw a beam of light come on. Thank the gods that Annabeth always kept a flashlight in her purse!

We went down a rock staircase that magnified the sounds that we made. I came to a stop.

"What's wrong?" asked Annabeth.

"That," I said as I pointed in front of me.

Annabeth shone her flashlight down where I was pointing and we found a cliff. Yes, a cliff. Then a voice purred, "Drop, Overlanders."

"What the heck is an Overlander?" I asked out loud.

A regal sounding girl's voice said from somewhere in the air, "It's what you are. Now do as Aurora says and drop. She will catch you."

"Who is Aurora? Who are you?" asked Annabeth, confused, which was rare.

The girl flew into view, yes, flew, on something furry and gold and said, "I am Queen Luxa of Regalia."
