How a Fangirl Became a Demigod

Chapter 1 : The Day My Life Changed

My name is Alexis Forman and a week ago, I was a regular teenage fangirl. Then everything changed.

----------------------------------------------- One Week Ago------------------------------------------------

“Look where you’re going, nerd!” Laughter followed me as I hurried to my next class. “Technically, I’m a fangirl, not a nerd,” I thought to myself. Finding a seat by my friend Robbie, I sat down, sighing.

“Tough first day so far?”

“The worst.” Robbie chuckled. “It can’t have been that bad though, right?” I glared at him. “Not making me feel better, Robbie…”

“Geez, I’m sorry.” He stood up. “But aren’t you used to it right now? I mean, people have been calling you names for a long time.”

“That doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt any less” I said. “But, you’re right. I don’t really pay attention to those people anymore.” I looked up to see Robbie concentrating on something. “Robbie thinking? Alert the media!” I laughed.

“Oh please, I think more than you do, and if you look at your grades versus mine, I think we can prove that.”

“Shots fired… Consider me hurt.” I put a hand over my heart.

“But in all seriousness, I really think you should stop with your obsession over Percy Jackson.” As he looked at my increasingly angry face, he quickly added, “I mean, this is all for you. It’s not healthy and everything. I mean, Percy Jackson isn’t real no matter how much you want him to be.”

I probably looked like a charging bull. Zeus knows, I definitely felt like it. “And who exactly was the person who wanted Annabeth as her girlfriend for the first three books and nearly destroyed my copy of the Battle of the Labyrinth when you read about the kiss?” My voice was like steel. “No matter how many times I told you that Percabeth would happen sooner or later, may I add.”

“At least I snapped out of it. I know that the world of Percy Jackson doesn’t exist and it would be good for you to know that too.”

I stood up and was about to start a rant but the teacher came in.

“Settle down class. I am your new Biology teacher, Mrs. Baker.” A small woman came in, with a leather jacket on. She didn’t look that scary but she had this kind of aura around her that radiated fear. She reminded me of someone, but I couldn’t really remember who.

“What happened to our other Biology teacher?” I asked.

Mrs. Baker turned to me with a glare on her face that froze me to my seat. “She has had a nervous breakdown, Ms.…?”

“Forman.” My mind was working at a thousand miles a minute. Nervous breakdown. Leather jacket. That glare… “Dodds.” I mutter. Robbie looked at me with a look of disbelief. I leaned over. “Remember Mrs. Dodds?”

“I think you’re going a little bit too far.”

“No listen to me!” I whispered urgently. “What did Mrs. Dodds always wear? A leather jacket. And how did Mrs. Dodds become a math teacher?”

“The previous teacher had a nervous breakdown…” Horror dawned on his face. “What do we do?”

I was about to answer when, “I believe talking in class is not permitted. Both of you, please go into the hallway.” I looked up to see Mrs. Baker/Dodds standing over us.

As soon as we were in the hallway, I turned around. “We have to get out of here.”

“You’re kidding right? I mean this is school. You are not supposed to run out of school. It’s against the law!”

“I’d rather break the law than be dead.” I countered back.

“We don’t even know if your weird theory is true! What if it’s not, huh?” Robbie’s face suddenly went slack. I turned around to see Mrs. Dodds in all her Fury glory, whip and wings included. Robbie took my hand. “I think your theory is true.”

“You think!? Run!”

Being chased by a Greek monster was something that I dreamed about ever since I read Percy Jackson. But, I always woke up before anything bad happened, before I got hurt. This wasn’t like that. This was complete chaos. We bumped into teachers (who then turned around and yelled at us for being truants ad completely missed the shriveled hag) and we crashed into walls and when we finally made it out of the school, I bumped into someone. Hard.

“What the hell?” I asked as I got up.

“What are you running from?” I pointed behind me as Mrs. Dodds burst out of the school. The boy’s gaze followed my finger. He sighed and took out a pen from his pocket. Wait, a pen? I looked more closely at his face. Green eyes, black messy hair, an orange t-shirt… I took a step back. “Who are you?”

He turned back towards me. “My name’s Percy Jackson.”

Profezzer: This is a prequel of sorts to a much larger drama that happens a couple thousand years in the future.

Warchief: The biggest problem with the Harry Potter series is that it's all from his point of view. So we never really get to see or understand events from other peoples perspective.

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

cakezombie29: I loved this book and from the moment I picked it up, it physically pained me to put it down. Though it also physically pained me when I read the ending, even though it totally turned the usual romance books like this stereotype of everything being 100% perfect on its head, and it was incredibly ...

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare. All the elements have rhyme and reason in being placed together.The respective background stories of the characters involved so far also give a sense of flair and thrill.I'...
