Casing the Sun but Losing the Moon: Chapter One
It was happening again. That thing with my mom. Where her eyes turn bright green and she starts to shake, chanting " Not my poor Luke! Don't do it" Do what? So I sat there cooped up in the bedroom closet, hiding from her. I hugged my knees and bit my lip. I should be use to this kind of thing, it happens every two days, but I was still scared. I never knew what she meant. I didn't know what was going to happen to me. I bet my father knew. No, I knew my father knew. That baster! He never told me why she was like this whenever I asked him. Why did he leave? I knew he wanted me go to some camp because I wasn't...normal. He said he was a Greek god and being his son I was a half-blood. At first I didn't believe him but then the monsters came to prove his theory.
Anyway my mother did this often. Sometimes she would grab me and I would kinda black out, but not totally. I would see images or scenes. I didn't know what they meant but I had a feeling they where about me in the future. I heard a noise and my body froze. It was quite and I let out a sigh.
Then whoosh! the closet door flung open. I gasped at the blond hair woman before me. My mother's eyes were still gleaming green and she leaned toward me. I pressed my back to the wall in terror and looked away from her.
" Please don't do it, Luke. Please!" Ms. Castellan yelled.
I felt cold hands seize my arms and fingernails dig into my skin. That's when it happened.
It was dark and cold around me. I was in a clearing and trees surrounded the area. I stood in front of a girl. She was about fifteen years old but as tall as me. Her dark hair was pulled up in a ponytail and she had a silver tiara on her head like she was a princess or was high in rank. A hint of freckles spotted across her cheeks and she had these stunning, shocking, intense, blue eyes. Over all she was beautiful.
" I need your help" I said. The girl pressed her lips together and looked to her right. She swallowed before saying " With what". It was like she was forcing the words out of her mouth. She wouldn't look at me.
" Well first, I'm sorry and I just want to let you know that I never meant to do what I did I was-"
" Oh, just save it Luke and get to the point!" she snapped. I sighed then said " I meet this girl and...." I faltered.
" And what?" she asked me.
" Thalia, she told me....she told me that, I...I have a new family now"
" A new family?" the girl named Thalia questioned. Her eyebrows creased up and she looked at me with worry.
" What do you mean, Luke" she asked.
" Thalia,....I got her..."
Then the scene changed. I was on a hill. The weather was cool and the sun was out. I was walking down the incline but stopped when an angry voice yelled " Don't just walk away from me. You can't walk away from everything, Luke" The voice was familiar. My feet didn't obey the command.
" Luke, look at me!" A firm hand wiped me around. The same girl in the other vision, Thalia, was gazing at me with puffy red eyes. Her cheeks shined and hands shook.
" What!" I yelled.
" Luke, you can't avoid this! You have to face it!"
" I can do whatever I want"
" Why do you do this to me! Do know that this hurts me. Do you know that I have to help you and look at the girl with envy! I want what she haves and I'll never have it! All because of your mistakes!" she screamed. By this time tears filled her eyes and rolled down her cheeks like a waterfall.
" What do you want from me" I yelled.
" I want you to give a damn!" she yelled and push me.
"I do care!" I exclaimed.
" No you don't" Thalia raised her hand in the air and swiped it through. Just before her palm hit my cheek I grabbed her wrist and stopped the force.
With a thrust I push her hand down. " God damn it, Thalia" I yelled. It was silent. The girl stared at me, her mouth shut. More tears came out.
" Thalia" I whispered and hugged her.
That was it and I was back in the open closet with my mother grabbing me. Her eyes were back to it's normal color, blue. She blink then asked " Luke, why are in the closet?"
I looked at her in terror. Did she know what I saw...or did know what she saw?, I asked myself. I let her help me up.
" Come on, Luke. Lets go to the kitchen and make so Kool-Aid and cookies"
The woman walked off leaving me there with my thoughts. I shivered. What was that about? Who was that girl? Thalia? And why was she mad at me? What did I do?
What was I going to do?, I thought.
