sorry this took me a long time to get down!!!
The light of my bedroom lamp wasn't that bright, but it was okay for the dark outside. I scratched my head as I stared at my math problem. 3.14 multiplied by 6.97 divided by three? Then you multiply it by 300? How does the 300 come in? I was confused as I sat in my room. The walls were painted a bright yellow and my bedspread was a pastel pink. I heard Emily and Ethan in the next room over yelling about something stupid probably. Tired of homework, I left my room to go do something more interesting.
I slipped down the wooden stairs to the living room where I found Colby and my Dad playing Kinect adventures. Colby's exact match of my Dad's hair was covered in sweat. He had my mom's nose. Everything else is my Dad's.
I left the living room following the sweet smell of cinnamon rolls from our kitchen. I slipped in and sat at the Island where dipped my finger in to the blue frosting.
"Brenna!!" My mom said. But you could tell she wasn't annoyed as most moms would. She dipped her finger in as well and licked her blue finger.
I put my chin in my hands. "Mom?" I asked her.
She wiped her hands. "Yes?"
"What if instead of me being a new minor goddess I was just a plain human like Colby?"
Her grey eyes looked sad for a moment. "Brenna, your father and I new you were a goddess the second you turned one. You want to know why?"
I raised an eyebrow and nodded.
"You could walk like a pro and speak perfect English before you were even 10 months old. Let alone 12. When you were three we went to Camp Half blood for the summer. You ran off one day and found the armory. You learned how to fight with sword that day. We knew you were immortal. But we needed facts to prove it."
"But that is just things anyone could do!!! Mom I don't think I'm immortal!! I'm not special at all, I don't have my own power and I suck and HATE Greek mythology class!!!!!!!"
Her blond hair fell over her grey eyes. She was silent for a few minutes. She seemed sad. "No mom I didn't...." But she stopped me.
With her voice quivering she said, "I understand. But you must understand that you are the new goddess we have been waiting for."
"STUPID PROPHECY!!" I said almost yelling as I dipped my finger into the frosting bowl again.
I thought you should know...haha....um so when my parents got married Rachel had a vision. She made a prophecy that a new Goddess was to be born to powerful demigods. I'm supposed to take one of the minor powers of one god and then I will become the goddess of it. They say I might become the goddess of baby animals or shape shifting. But my parents know neither is it. The prophecy said that Zeus would try at nothing to kill me if he found out there was another goddess to upset their balance.
Thats exactly it then. Zeus doesn't know I'm alive at all.
"Will you stop flicking my ear!!??!!" Emily yelled at Ethan as he flicked her ear with his fork. The squirmed at the other end of the dinner table Krissie sat next to me talking about how she was in charge of the school play and how it was Aesop's foibles with Zeus and Hera in it. (my school actually did this play!!)
Colby silently texted on his phone which he wasn't supposed to be doing and I of course, sat silently at in my chair swirling my shiny fork around the green peas.
"How was your day Brenna?" My Dad asked me while sipping the water from his cup.
"Fine." I said gloomily. The table became suddenly quiet. "I got an A on my English paper. And I did my speech today. Mr. Figle said I have a way with words that persuades everyone.
"What was your speech on?" My mom asked as she flipped her blond hair behind her. Krissie did the same. Krissie is like a miny Annabeth. Colby is a miny Percy. And I'm a mixture. While Ethan and Emily are their own creation of crazy stupidity.
Krissie rolled her eyes and Colby muttered a laugh but my mom gave him, 'the look'. If you know what I mean. The one that says, shut-up-my-son-or-else-no-phone.
Changing the subject Krissie began taking...again. "So Daddy since its a full moon tonight will you help me practice water fighting?" My Dad smiled. He would love too.
"Of course. I was going to ask you." He lifted his hand to the air where the water from his cup levitated to the air with out dropping. "Lets start now." Then he shot the water to Krissie. She screamed and suddenly there was a blue bubble in her hands.
"Dad I meant outside where we won't get things wet!!" she said then shot the water back to my Dad and he dropped it into his cup.
Colby laughed as he cleared his plate. "I am SO glad I'm the only normal one here." Then he went up the stairs to his room.
My Dad rolled his eyes. "He will learn." Then he began clearing the table. I sipped up stairs to avoid any more talk of powers and magic Greek junk.
As I began stuffing my bag with clothes for our trip to Camp I noticed the Greek mythology book on my bedside table. I reached for it and opened it looking inside. Good thing I could read English and Greek PERFECTLY. I don't have ADHD or Dyslexia like most of my family does.
The book seemed to open on it's own to a page of Gods and Goddess who deal with life. Persephone was at the top of Course. I saw Helios. Turns out he was the god of sight as well besides god of sun. But why did I want to read this? I guess my mind has a mind of its own. Okay that sounded weird. I closed the book and began stuffing my bag some more.
After packing I fell onto my bed and turned on the radio that sat in the corner. Z100 was on. I began tapping my foot to the beat of S&M by Rhianna.
"Lalalalal come one...come on....come on.." I whispered singing the words. I felt my throat tingle to the singing.
"Ss mm....ss mm....ss mm..." I sung again. "Cause I may be bad but I'm perfectly good at it! Sticks and stones may break my bones but chains and whips excite me!" I laughed at the thought that my singing actually sounded better than it usually did. and I suck at singing.
Suddenly I heard clapping by the door. My mom stood there smiling. "Oddly that was good." My mom said as she cam and sat on my made bed.
"Yea....thanks for spying." I said while pulling out my ipod.
"Brenna Zoe! I want you to listen to me. I know you don't think your a goddess but I know you are! You-"
"Shut up Mom. Just shut up." I dropped my ipod to my bed and got up.
"BRENNA ZOE JACKSON!! You do NOT need to have that attitude!! I didn't do anything to you!!"
I turned and stared at her. "Seriously? You seem so HAPPY to have me as your daughter to have a Greek goddess for a daughter!! I am not a goddess I am a normal girl who isn't special!!! And even if I was a Greek goddess you only love me BECAUSE I am one!!!"
"I love you either way!! You are my Daughter Brenna Jackson!!! How could I not love you!??!!??"
Anger burned and boiled inside of me like poison that needs to explode. Lightning seemed to shoot up around my arms and legs to my finger tips.
"You DO NOT love me!!!!!!!!!!!" I screamed at her. I felt my head swirling around and my fingers becoming numb. I felt taken over and angry, dangerous, hateful. I almost wanted to punch something...or destroy something....or...or...or..
I screamed and raised my right hand infront of me towards the the butterfly sculpture I made in 3rd grade. The lighting reached my fingers, finding the opening to come out. The power to move it all.
I felt even more angry as my mom began explaining ways to prove I was immortal. I seemed to scream again and she shut up.
"I'll just leave if your okay with that." She said turning the nob to my door. I felt even more hate. I suddenly willed the door to shut. I turned the lock. Even if I was far away from it. My mom stared at me with scared grey eyes like mine. I opened the window and the curtains began to turn around with the wind. And I hadn't moved a muscle.
"Brenna...what are you doing?" My mother whispered as she backed away from me. Her blond hair whipped around behind just like my brown hair.
I screamed. I felt mad really mad. But when I made the butterfly sculpture explode without moving I felt a giant burning in my eyes. The were swelling. I felt the boiling hate inside me be let out into the world where it destroyed things. I felt my self grab more hate from around me and push it out. I saw my computer begin to make funny sounds and spark as if it had be lit on fire.
My mom screamed as I chucked a book at her face by levitating it. Outside my door I heard my Dad trying to open the door but it was locked. I laughed and felt even more hate inside me fill up. I closed my eyes and reached for my senses. I grabbed my hearing sense. I dropped the sight sense which I had used to lift everything by levitating them with my eyes. I searched the room by hear. Frustrated with my hear I changed to smell. I saw a blue light that showed Percy. He had gotten in and was embracing Annabeth as she cried.
"Stop Brenna!!" He yelled. I laughed and pushed out all the hate I had left. A red source exploded from my hands creating a jail around them. I had trapped my parents inside a bubble. Percy tried to use his powers but he couldn't I had neutralized them.
And thats when I fainted onto the floor.
