The Outcasts

Possession

Jason’s POV

Suddenly, his hair and eyes turned black and somehow, he looked strikingly familiar. Zeus stumbled back, shocked.” No! It can’t be!” “It is true father, somehow, with the curse of Achilles , He has managed to host Nyx the goddess of the night , daughter of Chaos himself. his anger has overpowered him even now, Nyx is fighting to control him. As I looked, his hair and eyes turned white, then black, then suddenly it was grey. Percy turned towards Zeus and charged, riptide raised. It was as if the Earth was fighting itself . The gods attacked Percy-Nyx but somehow, they were the ones who got injured. Very soon, only Zeus,Poseidon and Hades were left standing. ” Nice son you got there Poseidon, think he’ll be able to handle the Big Three?” Hades questioned. Without an answer, They charged. Hades summoned the undead but with a flick of his hand, Persues consumed the skeletons into night. Poseidon charged , throwing his trident like a javelin. The resulting result, everyone was blown away but Percy was still standing there, catching the trident. I was shocked, or awed. Just as Zeus charged, a girl said ” P-P-Percy?” Everyone stopped, turning was Annabeth. Thank the Gods she was alright. Suddenly, Percy grabbed his head and screamed. His hair remained jet black but his eyes were sea green again.“A-Annabeth?” “What wavered then fell into the arms of Annabeth who had reached him...

Percy’s POV

I woke up and saw Annabeth smirking as she scooped drops of ambrosia off my chin with a spoon. When she saw my eyes open, she smiled.“Here we are over again” I said. She beamed. I sat up , my head hurting like Hades.” What happened?” I asked.” “You sorta got out of control and passéd out” She said. Then, she suddeny turned serious and said” When did you host Nyx?” “Who? ” I asked stupidly.“The Goddess of the Night.“She rolled her , my head hurt. Flashes of images came back from a dream I had the day before. A centaur was screaming then suddenly Nyx, I assumed appeared.” The only way to save Chiron is to host me. A greater battle approaches young hero and when that time comes, you’ll need all the help you can get. I saw images of titans and giants crushing everything in sight. People dieing. I knew what to do. ” I give permission to Nyx, goddess of the night to share her powers. I allow myself to be the host of the daughter of Chaos.” Then, I blacked out, again

Percy’s POV

Well as usual I had to have a dream while being unconscious, except well it didn’t seem like a dream, it seemed real. My uncanny ability to attract Gods has caused Chaos himself to pay me a visit which was pretty much ***** or in simpler words, bad.” So I heard You are the host of my daughter, Nyx!” I assumed that that was a clue that I was supposed to shout to so I shouted “YES!” “Well there’s no née to shout” Chaos said. I thought for a god called Chaos he was kinda not evil but with Mother Earth being evil and stuff I had pretty much nothing to say. Suddenly he turned serious and explained that I had to learn how to control Nux’s power in order to prevent future show me a series of attacks with a sword and then he said ” If u do feel too much energy stored inside of you use this only as a last resort for it may help ... Or destroy you completely.” I followed him, channeling my energy in my palm an soon blasted a hole on the ground with a ball of energy. Somehow, it didn’t feel right. The dark energy wasn’t suited for me. Before I could figure anything else, my dream shifted. It was Gaia. But what shocked me wasn’t that. It was her -They were half open.

Annabeth’s POV

I woke up with a start. It was midnight and I had fallen asleep beside seaweed brain’s sickbed.I looked at him. He was twisting and turning, looking pretty uncomfortable. Then, suddenly his black eyes... black? Then he spoke-” Three shall go west to the mountains the lost and going on. Death shall consume one of the four very soon. Lost will two be unhappily. Four will roam where no one goes. Gaining might for the last fight”I was stumped. Then suddenly his eyes turned sea green and he looked at me, clueless. I forgot about what happened 2 minutes before.“Seaweed brain.” I whispered on the brim of tears.” Hey wise girl.” He replied. Before I knew it he’s fingers were wiping my tears and our lips met. It was the best kiss he gave me. I could have stayed like that forever but as usual, Nico ,Thalia and Rachel appeared.“Hey! Is Percy awa...Oh Geez I’m sorry .“Nico blushed when he saw us making out. I blushed and Percy moved his lips away while Thalia and Rachel laughed.“Hey!“Percy said , apparently upset about the sudden interruption.“Sorry Kelp head” Thalia said between laughters. Percy ,Rachels eyes turned green and mist appeared “Three shall go west to the mountains the lost and going on. Death shall consume one of the four very soon. Lost will two be unhappily. Four will roam where no one goes. Gaining might for the last fight”but she didn’t stop there like Percy had, she continued”Daughter of Zeus Son of Hades Son of Poseidon and Wisdom’s Daughter are the four who will end the fight once and for all.“Then, Rachel fainted into the arms of Thalia.

Percy’s POV

My mouth was agape. I remember hearing that prophecy before or the first few lines anyway.“Well,” I said” looks like I got myself a quest.“SAYS WHO?” Everyone turned. Jason stood at the doorway came over ,his body sparkling with electricity. I was about to get up when surprisingly, Thalia, Nico and Annabeth stood in front of me.” Quit it brother. Percy won you and the prophecy was delivered to him.” Thalia said. For a moment, Jason looked shock then he knew better and walked away.“Well that settles who are you gonna choose Percy. I kinda have things to do in the Underworld so yup you get my point.” Nico said. I looked at Annabeth who’s eyes looked pleadingly at me. I didn’t get it at first but with an Oh I included her in the quest and Thalia as well. Nico on, we packed what little stuff we needed for the quest and set off with Dionysus saying ” Well good luck Peter Johnson hope you get eaten and stuff and bye.” and he walked off, leaving us to start off

Percy’s POV

" Well so where do we go” I asked. Annabeth looked at me like I was an idiot. “what?” I said. She rolled her eyes and said ” The prophecy told us to go west to a mountain so it’s obviously Atlas’s mountain” I was like ” what in the world?” I look at Thalia and noticed her sad expression. I guessed that it was because Zoe Nightshade was killed by Atlas during the Titan’s war.“Hey Thals it wasn’t your fault, you know about Zoe”I said. She looked at me and nodded before straightening up again and continued walking. As with other quests this one had many monsters to till with too. The hellhound had been shot dead with Thalia’s arrow when suddenly there was a growl. A drakon appeared from the trees. I would love to say that I was confident and all but the truth was my leg was like jelly and I was sweating. I had come across a few drakons before but this one made them look like ants. It’s head alone was as big as three adult tree trunks .And to make matters worse- like it isn’t already is- it naturally had to be able to spit out poisonous fire too. Annabeth wore her Yankees cap, turning invisible and started looking for chinks in the armor. Thalia scaled up a tree and shot arrow after arrow, aiming at it’s eye. Well as for me I naturally had to stand in front of it and distract it as it roared in my face. “Wow someone has to brush his teeth.” I said. I charged it.

Annabeth’s POV

As I scouted around the drakon and looked for chinks in it’s armor I saw Percy charge straight towards it. I was thinking “what in the Hades is he thinking ?” Then I saw him jumping up, splashing water on the darkens head and freezing it, thus, I went something like Oh. I was so distracted I didn’t manage to see the darkens tail swinging violently towards to say, I got hit . ” ANNABETH!” I heard both Percy and Thalia scream. I fell to the ground but struggled to get up. The drakon’s tail came towards me again I closed my eyes, awaiting what I thought was bound to happen...

Annabeth’s POV

I was thinking “what in the Hades is he thinking ?” Then I saw him jumping up, splashing water on the drakons head and freezing it, thus, I went something like Oh. I was so distracted I didn’t manage to see the darkens tail swinging violently towards to say, I got hit . ” ANNABETH!” I heard both Percy and Thalia scream. I fell to the ground but struggled to get up. The drakon’s tail came towards me again I closed my eyes, awaiting what I thought was bound to happen. I heard the sound of water and then crack. I looked up and saw the drakon’s tail frozen. I got up and saw Percy. Except for his eyes, everything looked weird. They were still sea green but had a tint of darkness in them. He pointed a fist at the drakon and opened his palm. A ball of darkness hit the wriggling monster and it disappeared . Thalia jumped down from a tree.” How d-” she barely finished her question before Percy answered ” Nyx”. I stared , awed by what my boyfriend had accomplished. But suddenly, he shuddered and fell.

Percy’s POV

Demigod dreams really suck. Before I knew it, I was face to face with Chaos.” So little hero, you have managed to control my daughter’s powers, I’m impressed. But it has taken a huge toll on you. Now rest, for you will need it. Suddenly, the image shifted. He was floating in a place where he recognized - the underworld. He saw another figure below with jet black hair and sea green eyes but it’s skin was pale. Then, he caught sight of Nico. “P-P-Percy? Your dead?” I was shocked, I was dead? It couldn’t be. I was still right here. Then...

Percy’s POV

I awoke with a start, coughing profusely. I pinched himself, make sure i wasn’t dead. Surprisingly, I couldn’t feel anything. Then I remembered that I had the curse of Achilles. “Seaweed brain!” I turned and saw Annabeth again , her eyes brimming with tears. ” Gods I’ve made Annabeth cry too much with my fainting.” I thought. Then we kissed and the feel of her lips got rid of any suspicion that I was dead. Unwillingly, I pulled apart.” Come on, Wise girl there’s no time to waste. ” Reluctantly, she agreed. Thalia met us as we came to the foot of a mountain.” I didn’t know we had traveled this fast, we are here.” Thalia said when she caught sight of us.”

Thalia’s POV

We made our way up the mountain, somewhat surprised that there were no monsters to block our way. Seaweed brain and wise girl were lagging behind with seaweed brain as the last one as he want to ” make sure Annabeth didn’t fall” . I snickered. But my smile soon faded as I arrived at the top and saw Chiron holding up the weight of the sky.” CHIRON!” I shouted. The old teacher looked up. His face was weary and his centaur hooves buckled. He cant hold on any longer, I thought. I did something stupid. I ran forward” Chiron comeon give the weight to me.” He shook his head, fear in his eyes. I rolled my eyes, not getting my teachers meaning ” Look if Annabeth and Percy can do it, I can too” Then suddenly I heard a laugh ” So your here Thalia Grace Daughter of Zeus and a hunter as well... interesting.” A voice was then that I realized Chiron wasn’t afraid of me holding up the sky, he was warning me about Atlas. I cursed myself while standing up. I notched my bow and took aim. Atlas laughed. He was fast. Or faster than before. With swipe, he pushed me toward a rock. ” THALIA NO!” I heard Percy scream. I was barely conscious. I watched as Percy glared at Atlas and unsheathed riptide.

Annabeth’s Pov.

I watched in horror as Thalia was swiped towards a rock where she lay unmoving. As Percy took out riptide, I wore my Yankees cap and took out my knife. As Percy met Atlas head on, I scouted around him, occasionally stabbing Atlas in the back or anywhere I could. He groaned but otherwise seemed alright. He swiped for me and nearlygot me if not for Percys jab with riptide on his feet. It was then that I caught sight of Chiron. I took out my cap and was about to bear the weight for him when he shook his head. I understood .Chiron was too weak to fight.I put my cap back and continued stabbing the Titan. Suddenly, I was swiped backwards by Atlas. It was too fast. I screamed as I fell back and would have if Thalia had not managed to get up and grab hold of my hand.

Percy’s Pov.

I watched in horror as Annabeth was swiped backwards and sighed as Thalia caught hold of her . I was mad. I charged towards Atlas as he laughed. I raised riptide and swung it down at him with full force. For a moment, he’s eyes showed a sign of horror as he stumbled backwards. Then, they blazed and he pushed me back. I jumped and landed on both legs. Silently, I willed the water behind me to rise. I had used this trick before and a Titan, well it should work.” Small waves” I thought. The current was overpowering as I forced them to hold back their full force. One Mississippi, two Mississippi... I jumped as Atlas charged and I unleashed the waves to meet him head on. The waves engulfed Atlas and I decided to try something new. I look at Chiron who understood what I was about to a teacher, always a teacher.I thought. I willed the waters to drag atlas towards Chiron who jumped away in time as Atlas struggled to support the weight of the sky.“NOOOO!” he screamed. I shut him up as I froze the waters and all we could see was a frozen Atlas holding up the sky. Immediately, I went to help the others. ” How long will he be frozen?” Annabeth asked . ” Until Apollo decides to melt it I think” I replied. I held on to Chiron as we walked away, back to Camp Half Blood.

Percy’s Pov.

We were on our way back to Camp Half Blood when Chiron stumbled and fell. ” Quick give him some ambrosia!” ” No child, it is of no has induced a poison created by Gaia from the pits of Tartarus. Mother Earth is rising mu...must defeat her.” “The fleece, the golden fleece” Thalia exclaimed. Then suddenly, Chiron’s essence started disappearing.“NO! Chiron ur immortal we still need you you can’t go!“Even as I said it I knew that his time had prophecy had been right.“Death shall consume one of the four very soon.” Annabeth whispered. Chiron looked at me mournfully as he entered the Underworld...

Thalia’s Pov.

Campers surrounded us as we arrived at Camp Half Blood.” So where’s Chiron?” he peered around. I broke down.“Jason..he..he’s ... Chiron’s dead.” All around campers started tearing.” ITS ALL PERCYS FAULT!” someone shouted. I watched in horror as they started advancing towards Percy and Annabeth who looked stumped themselves. “Get out of here!“Jason snarled. All around blades were drawn as the crowd surrounded the duo. “If he goes I’ll go too” I said. Jason looked at me in disbelief then his expression hardened and he pushed me towards Percy and Annabeth.“REVENGE FOR CHIRON!“shouted some new campers. I caught sight of the old campers, those who knew Percy but they just stood in a corner. Suddenly, all Hades broke loose as skeleton hands shot out from the Earth. I turned around and saw Nico and MrsO’Leary nodded towards us. When we were on the hellhound, it shadow travelled, leaving Camp Half Blood in it’s wake. “I can’t believe them!“I said. Percy shook his head. A tear dripped down.“Don’t you see Thalia? It’s all supposed to happen “Lost will two be unhappily. Four will roam where no one goes. Gaining might for the last fight” “So where will we go now?” I turned towards Annabeth. She looked up “To the place where no one goes- Atlantic”

Third person’s POV

5 years had passed since the banishment of the four demigods from Camp Half Blood. Only a few of the senior campers remembered the incident. However, monsters continued to rise as Gaia woke. The original seven were now five as they discussed what would have to be done.“If only Percy was here...and Annabeth. Those pair always had a plan.“Piper McLean daughter of Aphrodite said. Jason could not help glaring at her. The Gods of Olympus had been busy. It was rumored among the camps that there were 4 people, for it was unclear who their identity was were stopping many monster marches to either Greek or Roman camp. Then one day The Fates approached Camp Half Blood, calling upon the remaining five for a Gaia were to be stopped, four demigods had to be called upon.“Who are the four?“Jason, who automatically assumed the role of leadership asked.“The banished four” was heard by all before The Fates disappeared. Confused looks rippled throughout the camp but Piper, Leo,Jason,Hazel and Frank knew who they were...

Third person’s POV

Jason led the five towards their oracle a mortal name Rachel Elizabeth Dare. Before he could even speak however, she shivered and was enveloped in green mist” Five will go to the lands seek the four reborn. But toy with them The Fates will and give them success hope renew”

Percy’s POV

A breeze blew past them, blowing my hair back. Annabeth shivered next to me. Fortunately, I caught sight of the action. I wrapped my arms around her to shield her from the cold of the Alaska-the land beyond the Gods. My eyes flared as I thought about them. They were the cause of our misery. We had become the outcast and they couldnt care less. I turned and saw Nico keeping Thalia warmth and smiled. Thalia wasn’t part of the hunters now we had forsaken the Gods. Suddenly, I saw a bright light and found what I was looking for. “Ermm Percy what’s that?” Thalia asked. Nico’s eyes widened” That isn’t what I think it is right?” I nodded my head and smiled. A few months back, Thanotos had been chained here and part of his immortal energy had remained. Instinctively, Annabeth knew what I had in mind, her eyes wide in shock as I grabbed hold of that energy with Nyxs power and split it evenly to each of us. I felt strength like never before course through me. Just like that, we were Gods, yet not quite. We were somewhere between a demigod and a God. This was where our home would be. Alaska was now a home of the outcasts.

Piper’s Pov

“The lands beyond hmmmm” she wondered. Suddenly th guy called Frank Zhang said”It’s the Alaska”“I think the prophecy meant the land beyond the Gods.“I was stumped”Isn’t that like the place where there’s no Gods and well we are literally alone?“He nodded. I was left saying Oh while we got aboard the Argo II which thankfully had not been destroyed in the last it flew, I couldn’t help noticing Jason’s , the way he talked, etc. “Snap out of it!” I muttered to myself. Wel theses are the cons of being the daughter of the Love goddess I guess-you tend to love others more. I let out a sigh. Suddenly, Leo shouted ” We’re under ATTACK!” Everyone got up and looked. Sure enough, they was at least a dozen of Griffins heading our way. The biggest-which I assumed was the leader let out a bloodcurdling scream which I swear could have been heard even by Griffins bull-charged the Argo II causing us to be thrown about completely helpless.“Ermm guys..we may have to abandon ship any second now.“”Very reassuring Leo”I muttered. Soon enough, cracks appeared on the sides of our warship.“LEO VALDEZ DO YOU EVEN REALISE THAT WE HAVE THE ******** CANNONS!” The guy called Frank Zhang yelled.I could have sworn to punch Leo there and then except that he was the only one who knew how to fiddle with the mechanics. 5 down then 7 and there were only 3 Griffins remaining.“Our cannons are out.“Leo said meekly.“We’re dead” I heard Jason mutter. Another ear-piercing shrik was heard as the lead Griffin. There wasn’t any opening in the second floor and the steps were destroyed, thus we were completely useless as demigods.“5 seconds to impact ” Leo muttered. We watched in horror as the 3 griffins charged at us for the final blow...
