Wrath

Chapter 5

Percy/Wrath's POV

I didn't go back to camp like I told my mom I would. Instead, I headed to a hotel and decided to stay the night there. Who cares if anything had happens? It'd be bound to happen soon anyway! I'm just saying...

I booked a suite in a hotel called The Empire. After getting my room key, I jumped into the elevator and eventually made it to my room. Once there, I sat down on the king sized bed and admired everything.

The walls were all painted navy blue. On 3/4 of the walls very full sized mirrors running the length of the wall. Black curtains were tucked nicely off to the side. A stone kitchen stood off through the hallway and a bathroom was down the hall from that. All in all, the suite was pretty nice.

Ok, explanation time. You're probably wondering why I didn't go straight back to camp. First of all, if anyone saw me like this, what do you think would happen? It'd be a public announcement! I don't want to sit through that. Ever. And secondly, this place has always looked cool, but Mom said I couldn't stay here because we lived down the street. But now I'm not welcome at home for the time being, and I will NOT go back to camp, at least not now.

And thirdly, I need a nap! Zzzz...

++++++++ LINE BREAK +++++++

Once I woke up, I noticed it was already noon. Sunlight poured through the windows and made the nice dark colored room bright. Lazily, I sat up and zombie-walked to the kitchen.

In the kitchen, I made myself a large stack of blue pancakes topped with blueberry syrup straight from maine. It was some if the best pancakes I've ever had, other than my mom's homemade pancakes. Nothing, and I mean nothing, beats her blue pancakes.

After breakfast, which was more like lunch, I decided to get back to camp before I had people breaking down my cabin doors to get in and see what i was doing, only to see I waant even there. Plus, this is the second day I haven't been there, the second day they haven't seen me. If anyone cared about me, I'd say to go back because I wouldn't want them to worry, but they don't care about me. Annabeth proved that when she broke up with me over my sister she thought I was dating. Just the thought of her saying that makes my blood boil. I mean think about it! My fatal flaw is personal loyalty! Why would I disrespect someone's spirit by dating another girl if i loved the one that already passed away?! Use your brain Annabeth! It's all you do!

Soon, I was back on the streets heading back to Camp Half-Blood. Besides, even if I hated them all, tomorrow is karaoke night! Wrath loves karaoke! He wouldn't let us miss it!

Quickly, I hailed a taxi and paid him 50 bucks to get me back to camp. He thought I was crazy, but I still was giving him cash, so I guess he didn't think I was that crazy.

Once I got there, I high-tailed it to my cabin and slammed the door. Safe. They're all eating lunch down there. I guess I'll be here for dinner. Good. I'm starving.

"They'll have to meet Wrath soon," I whispered to myself. Dragging myself off the floor where u had been sitting to block the door, I crawled onto my bunk. I have 6 hours until dinner. I guess I could practice my sing for karaoke night. Which reminds me, I need to pick a song... Hm I have one in mind... This might work...

Soon, I dozed off to a dream that wasn't a demigod dream, but instead was a dream filled with singing pancakes and evil houses. Not my worst dream...

+++++++ LINE BREAK AGAIN +++++++

The dinner horn woke me up with a start. I was so surprised, actually, that I fell off my bunk and whacked myself on my forehead with my metal trash can. Super heroic for the hero of Olympus. It even gave me a huge bloody cut over my eye. I didn't have enough time to heal it with water if i wanted to get good food at dinner tonight. First come, first serve.

I threw my hood over my head and rushed down to the pavilion. I can't be late. Surprisingly, the only other cabins present when I got there were Hermes, Hypnos, Hecate, and Ares. I was shocked and a little glad to see that Athena didn't get there yet.

Quickly, I got my food and sacrificed a piece to Poseidon because he's my dad; Hades, because I'd love to have Nico here again and it just felt right; Artemis, because I needed to see Thalia again soon; and Athena, so she'd know I didn't do anything to her daughter, she broke up with me not the other way around. Then I took the rest of my food and sat down at my table.

The rest of the cabins soon came in. There was no real talking going on; everyone was whispering. I could tell it was about me, no one knew who I was in this state. And for now, I'm not going to tell them. I smirked to myself at what the Athena cabin must be feeling about me right now. HA! If they think this is bad, just wait until they know its me. I almost want to give myself away right now just to see their silly expressions. Almost.

I was almost done eating when Chiron walked up to me.

"Hello," he said in a false cheery voice. "I am directer here. What's your name? How do you know your a child of Poseidon?"

I rolled my eyes. I bet someone put him up to this. Chiron usually doesn't bother people unless they get into a fight. I'm not fighting anyone... Yet.

I didn't take off my hood for Chiron to see. Instead I just lifted my face up to him and left him see last the shadows. Once he saw me, his face turned pale. He looked like he was going to faint. I chuckled on the inside. On the outside, I just glared.

"Percy," he whispered. I nodded. Yeah brainiac, I thought. Took ya a while to figure that one out.

Slowly, Chiron backed away, almost as if he was afraid of me, tail swishing nervously.

Oh well. Curiosity killed the cat. Nine times.

After eating, I headed down to the campfire. I could tell Annabeth was following me, but I ignored her. Once at the fire, all talking stopped. Ha. They're scared of me. Again, HA.

Chiron gave some lame announcement, but I mostly toned it out. Suddenly, Travis Stoll shouted out, "Do you know where Percy is?" That got my attention. I wonder where this is going. I bet they'll end up revealing me. But for now, I just stared calmly at the fire, sitting as close to it as possible without burning myself, and having a chat with Hestia in my mind. She doesn't mind the new me. More like the old me, a different me Ive always kept hidden. Stupid Annabeth for releasing him. Me. Whatever.

Everyone was talking at Travis's question. I guess Chiron didn't want to answer. Instead, my favorite Ares camper came up to me and tried (and failed) to get information out of my about myself. If she knew, Clarisse probably wouldn't have wasted her breath. Too late now.

"Hey punk," Clarisse snarled. "You're from Possidon's cabin. Do you know how Prissy is? He hasn't been seen for a few days. What do you know punk?" The whole camp was holding their breath waiting for my reply. I shrugged and Clarisse started to fume. Oh, this getting interesting...

"Do you not know Prissy? Or do you not know how he is?" Clarisse asked. Again I shrugged. I could see gears turning in Annabeth's mind from the corner if my vision. I guess she's onto me...

"Children, I think we should leave him alone..." Chiron tried to warn them, but, surprise surprise, no one listened. Annabeth strolled up to looking confident, but I could tell she was nervous. Everyone here was.

"Who the Hades are you? Who do you think you are?" Annabeth asked me angrily. I gave a half-hearted shrug, pretending to be bored, yet I was extremely amused. This whole this is pretty funny if you think about it.

Finally, everyone had enough. "If you don't tell us who you are and what your problem is, I will rip this hood off your head and then everyone can see just who you are," Annabeth warned. I shook my head furiously no. A look of smug pride filled Annabeth's eyes at thinking I was silently begging her. HA. I just don't like being threatened. I don't know anyone who does.

"1...2...3...!" Annabeth said as she pulled my hood off my head despite my protesting.

"Who the Hades ARE you?" Clarisse asked me baffled and angry. Inwardly, I sighed, knowing they've found me out. Chiron gave this whole speech on how people knew me and I was Percy Jackson, but I ignored him. I was too busy glaring at everyone, even Annabeth. Especially Annabeth. After Chiron was done talking I stood up, still glaring at everyone, and stormed off to my cabin, where I can always be myself since I'm almost always alone now that Tyson works for Dad full time.

Gods, why must they all pester me? Why me?

I sat in bed once I got to my cabin. Let my go by 3 Doors Down started to play.

One more kiss could be the best thing

But one more lie could be the worst

And all these thoughts are never resting

And you're not something I deserve

In my head there's only you now

This world falls on me

In this world there's real and make believe

And this seems real to me

[Chorus]

You love me but you don't know who I am

I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand

And you love me but you don't know who I am

So let me go

Let me go

I dream ahead to what I hope for

And I turn my back on loving you

How can this love be a good thing

When I know what I'm goin through

In my head there's only you now

This world falls on me

In this world there's real and make believe

And this seems real to me

[Chorus]

You love me but you don't know who I am

I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand

You love me but you don't know who I am

So let me go

Just Let me go...

Let me go

And no matter how hard I try

I can't escape these things inside I know

I knowww..

When all the pieces fall apart

You will be the only one who knows

Who knows

[Chorus]

You love me but you don't know who I am

I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand

And you love me but you don't know Who I am

So let me go

Just let me go

And you love me but you don't

You love me but you don't

You love me but you don't know who I am

And you love me but you don't

You love me but you don't

You love me but you don't know me

Story of my life right there. The story of Percy Jackson. Pretty much sums it all up. Everyone loves me but they don't know who I am. Just let me go, I'm already a different person. Let me go, I'm already gone.
