Chapter 1 – It's weird but legal
~ In New York~
"Percy! Wake up!" I heard my mom yell. "It's time for school!"
"Idmwnnagutoschul" was my intelligent version of "I don't wanna go to school." I tried to go to sleep again, thinking I've won.
Fat chance. Another player entered the 'Wake up Percy' game.
"Percy get off your ass and get ready," someone screamed in my ear. I instantly turned over and fell out of my bed. I groaned while the voice laughed. And I knew that laugh anywhere.
"Nico, what in Hade's name are you doing here?" I yelled at him. Nico di Angelo, my best friend, was by my desk, laughing like crazy.
"Dude. Not cool to shadow travel here and give me a heart attack!"
"Come on Percy," he said, still laughing a bit. "Today's the 1st day of school. It'll be awesome!" He said this happily. A bit too happily I might add.
I just started at him. Since when did the son of Hades liked to go to school?
He saw my face and knew what I was thinking about.
"See Hades finally let me go to school instead of staying in the Underworld. So I'm psyched."
Nico's father, Hades, Lord of the Dead, kept him in the Underworld because he thought the world wouldn't accept him as a normal teen. We're both 17 but he acts older, so people find that very strange.
Last summer, we met by accident when his dad and my dad, Poseidon, God of the Sea, took us to the Summer Solstice. We met there and we've been hanging out ever since.
I'm Percy, by the way, Percy Jackson. My dad did the same to me, but thankfully he didn't keep me in the Underworld but in his Underwater Palace. Since I'm his son, I could breathe underwater and the pressure didn't make me explode. So I stayed there for the past 5 years. When I spoke to Nico, he said that he'd been in the Underworld for 5 years too.
And what did we do?
We trained. We were very good with a sword ourselves and we sparred whenever we got the chance, so we were very close friends.
But about 2 weeks ago, we wanted to go to high school. After a lot of pleading, my dad let me go, but Hades still refused. Poseidon saw this as a new experience for us and he told us that he'll try to convince Hades to let Nico go. My dad can be a really good guy when he wanted to.
Right now I'm staying with my mother, Sally Jackson and her husband, Paul. And now, since Nico's going to school, he was going to stay with Maria di Angelo and his twin sister, Bianca.
I met Bianca when I went to Nico's house the 1st time. Nico tried to hook me up with her and succeeded. But after a few dates, she told me that she wasn't feeling any special connection and I agreed with her. So we decided to stay best friends. Sure we hugged and we'd give each other a kiss on the cheek, but no sparks. She was like my cousin. She is my cousin. So it's kind of creepy dating your cousin.
I got up and went to get ready.
"I'll go get Bianca and we'll come here in 10 minutes." I head Nico say before he shadow travelled home. It took a lot of effort to shadow travel, but he mastered it during those 5 years in the Underworld. Now it's like taking a short walk in the park.
In 5 minutes I was done and I waited for them to arrive. 5 minutes later they appeared. Dam they were precise.
Bianca greeted me with a hug and said "Morning Percy."
"Morning B," I said. Nico rolled his eyes.
"Are you sure you're not together?" he asked. Bianca let go and slapped her twin on the back of his head.
"Of course we're not. We're cousins. It would be weird. Right Percy?" I nodded.
"It's weird but it's legal for us demigods." He said, rubbing the back of his head.
"Yeah I know. But Bianca and me are like brother and sister. Right?" I said looking at her.
"Yup," she said, popping the 'p'.
"Ready to go?" Nico asked.
"Yeah. Give me a minute," I said and went to the door.
"MOM!" I yelled. "We're going to school." And I went to the others.
A moment later, my mom said "Who's we? And how?" as she entered my room. Then she saw the twins and smiled. She knew that Nico was a son of Hades and she knew about his shadow travelling. We used that a lot when we go out.
We held on Nico's hand and shadow travelled to our first day of school.
It seemed like it was going to be a normal first day. But with our luck, I barely doubt it.
"Our luck will hold. Our luck will hold" I kept chanting in my head.
But little did I know how wrong I was.
