Kodi and Megan were sitting in the main lobby of the Blood-Cross headquarters, waiting for their first orders from Michael, the new headmaster, “So what do you think our first mission will be? I hope it’s something cool!” Megan said eagerly. They heard someone walking, it was Michael, “Well guys! I’m assigning you your first mission!”, Megan jumped in glee, “You’re going to be detectives in this, there’s been reports of a small town quite a few miles outside of the city being empty, they say there’s residents living there, but at night they’re all gone, nowhere to be seen, but there are also reports of orbs and strange disembodied voices, so they call it The Town of Ghosts, I want you two to check it out, stay there until nightfall, and see what the heck is going on”, Megan grew nervous, “A ghost town?! Are you kidding me?! I am not going to die by the hands of a ghost!” Megan freaked out, “Stop! You’re not gonna die, if anything, the residents are kind people, they’d never harm a fly!” Michael tried to reassure Megan. Kodi got up and grabbed Megan by the arm, “C’mon we’re going”, “No I don’t wanna die! Please I can’t die yet I’m too young please! No please! Kodi don’t do this! I thought you were my friend ;-;" Kodi walked out dragging the babbling girl. “We made it, and my legs feel like jelly, no thanks to you!”, Megan had been on Kodi’s back the whole walk, “Stop being a scaredy-cat and get off my back!”, Megan hopped off, nearly making him fall backwards, they approached the small town, it had a few small brick buildings, a couple shops, it didn’t seem too bad. “Oh hello children! What brings you here?” a woman, about 30, walked up to them, “Oh, hello ma’am, we’re just here to check it out, we noticed it while we were walking!” Kodi said it was a smile. “All the way out here? You children these days, haha!” She said kindly. Megan peeked from behind Kodi…”She’s a ghost I just know it!”, Kodi looked behind, “Oh haha! She didn’t mean that she’s just delusional from the heat!” He blocked Megan’s mouth so she wouldn’t say anything else that’d get them in trouble. “Oh that’s okay, it is quite hot out today isn’t it? Here, come to my husband’s café we’ll get you some food and something to drink” she walked them over, and they went in. “Jason, we have guests!”, she turned to Kodi and Megan, “My husband is off on business, so my son is working the café today, he’s about your age” Kodi looked over at him…*Cue classic nosebleed scene* “May I ask why your son is shirtless and his nice bo-“ Megan stopped him, “Haha! He means to say why is he working shirtless! Hehe (Whispering to Kodi: You better keep it in your pants, buddy, we’re on an important mission!)”, "Oh he just has a habit of that! I hope you don't mind!", "oh, I don't mind one bit " Kodi replied. the waiter gave them tea and pastries, “Enjoy!” he walked away and looked back at Kodi and winked *cue second nosebleed scene* when they finished they got up, “it seems to be getting dark, I guess we should head back to the city” Kodi thanked them and so did Megan, they walked out. “It doesn’t seem too suspicious, but we should have a stakeout, let’s make a plan!” they waited until nightfall, “Better close up before they pop up again!” Kodi listened, “They?” he asked to himself, the sun has set, everything seemed fine, until…”Kodi! Look over there! On the street!” there was a person, floating, she was pale, almost transparent. “Is that a ghost?!” Kodi looked closer, then the ghost looked at him, “You should hide, or the Dark One will get you”, her voice had a faint echo, ”Dark one?” Kodi asked as he walked closer, “Yes, she is a mean woman, she took my soul to use as a magic source” she replied, “Then we must be dealing with a witch! Damn! This’ll be tricky…Do you know where she is hiding out?”, the ghost pointed into the woods nearby “Over there, straight ahead, please, free our souls!”, “You can count on it!” Kodi replied smiling. As Megan and Kodi were walking they came across a hut…a witch’s hut…”This must be it…Hey isn’t that-“, “CLAIRE?!” Megan barged through the door as Kodi snuck in through an opening, “So, you guys are here? So sad that you had to find out…now you’ll have to die…” she unleashed a strange vibe…no doubt evil…”You came across a snake, now you’re gonna get bit!!!” Megan readied her blade, Kodi got ready to sneak attack her, “prepare to die you bitch!” Megan yelled, she went and attacked her, Megan was fast, but not as fast as Kodi, she attacked her over and over, but her black magic protected her, “damn it you coward! Start fighting! I’ll avenge those lost souls, you’re going to die!” Kodi watched, planned, and waited, “Satan will rise again, and bring in a new world, a world cleansed of mortal beings!” Claire laughed. “You witches dealing with matters that will get you killed! You’re a fool Claire!” Megan kept attacking, starting to break the barrier of black magic, “You will die! You evil scum!” Megan finally broke the barrier “Kodi NOW!” he hit her, with speed faster than any human could have, and defeated her, “Y-you bastard! *coughing blood* Satan will succeed!” Kodi kicked her, “He will not! He is weak! Evil always loses!”, “I guess you’re right…why don’t you just finish me then?!” Kodi looked at Megan, and then back at Claire, “You’re not worth killing, I’ll let the authorities at the Blood-Cross deal with you” Kodi took out a cell phone, “Michael we found out the problem, little Claire here can tell you ALL about it!”, “What?! Claire?! What’s going on?!”, “Oh nothing, just that she’s a snake witch!”, after some time Michael and the authorities came, “So, little Claire here is a witch? Your black magic is coming to an end” they took her. “Kodi, Megan, you did a great job, you deserve a break after all this, you got tomorrow off, thank you guys, you’ll have your pay in the morning”, “Actually, let Megan get the pay, she did most of the work, besides I found my new favorite café that's better than money *day dreaming about Jason* hehe” Megan looked at him…..”BAKAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!” *Falcoooon PUNCH*
“Oh gosh you two….”

Original Q version here: Demigod Thruths and Dares.
Okay This is not a real chapter. I just want people to start sending in well, truths, dares and questions. Now I'm going to set a few rules.
1) No life threatening dares
2) Dares cannot be escaped no ifs, ands, or buts about it
3) Please keep it under a T rating. There may be children reading this
4) I reserve the right ignore any thing I don't see fit for my story (i.e. over T rating)
Now you may ask/dare Percy, Annabeth, Hazel, Leo, Frank, Nico, the Stolls, Clarisse, Piper, Jason and my OC Crystal. I will add more characters later. Now some info on Crystal she is an elf(Keeper of the lost cities elf) so that explains some odd things about her personality and the things she can/does do. For those of you that do not know what Keeper is search it or "Shannon Messenger" and read it! The book is AWESOME! *Clears throat* Any way like I said send in those suggestions, I need them to make this successful!
A/N: Okay, yeah, I copied and pasted.
The Dark mist that had surrounded me that night, it was not normal. In my mind, it felt as though I was being shut out and the mental door in my mind kept trying to break through the barrier that was keeping me from controlling my own body, my own voice. It had caused me to do something absolutely unsanitary. There’s no doubt that I wasn’t the one trying to do all of that, but I had no words on how to explain what had happened, because I don’t even know what had happened. All I know is that I heard a voice in my head, it was first a commanding male voice, and then there was the voice of a woman who sounded as if she were having sex.
When I was about to leave the club, a certain voice took over my mind and caused my controls to shut down and then entered her controls instead.
“You gotta have some fun, hun! Let me handle this, aight?” The woman’s voice said.
I was going to say something, but before I knew it, her voice had shut me out. I was no longer in control, I felt like I was drowning in shadows, but then a certain figure emerged from the shadows and possibly didn’t see me standing there. He pointed and opened his mouth, but I heard no voice coming from him, no sounds or anything. That’s when I realized I was unconscious. But for some reason I felt like attempting to speak to him and yell out his name… but the problem is… I didn’t know his name.
Our health paper was in due in two days. And I haven’t even started it yet, after all that’s happened. All I did after getting home alone was stare at the mirror in my room. Then I thought about the health prompt… “When you look into the mirror, what do you see?” Our reports testing our self esteem levels. Thoughts swarmed around in my head, and this is the one thought that was uncontrollable, I had to keep staring at the mirror in order to keep myself from blowing up.
The coldness of the back window spreads throughout the room and sends mild slivers of ice down through my shirt as I change into my usual pajamas. I look in the farthest mirror across the room to notice something different about my facial expression. I’m not my usual self, no emotion, nothing on my face that says either sad or happy or anything. It’s just a blank face, but with faded eyes. I take a look at my eyes and notice that they’re almost like a dead fish’s eyes. My brother ditched me at the mall and left me to just walk home all on my own, he tried to apologize at least, but it still wasn’t enough. I was so tired…I was so tired of being played with. I was so tired of people walking all over me. But most of all, I was tired of being the weakest one in the family.
I look straight into the mirror, and see a figure appear in the mirror, he had a frown at first, but then he began grinning. His hair was snow white with a black “X” colored in the middle, he had a little bit of blood on the edge of his lower lip, he was wearing a slightly torn tuxedo, the kinds you wear at prom, and he was slightly covered in blood. His lips were moving, but no sound came out, and he disappeared once more. I don’t know how, but it felt as through he was trying to whisper something in my ear, but his words just weren’t clear. It felt as though I needed to come closer, but the closer I got, nothing changed. What’s missing? What’s the reason why I can’t hear him? Then I look down at my hands and realize that we’re already linked, and I cannot hear him either. That night, I just decided to go to sleep. The rage, frustration, and amount of anger I have stored in my heart all this time, it wasn’t healthy for me to go to sleep like this. I never woke up, until the next day, after school.
As soon as he’s about to wake up, my next minion goes in for the kill, I gave her the orders and she replied with “I’ll put the pain on them, Master!” She has a very angry attitude. But Her own aura is full of pain and suffering from her very past. I told her when creating her, that she could get her vengeance and dignity restored if she does what I ask her to. She hasn’t mentioned it ever since, maybe because she doesn’t know whether she will restore her vengeance and dignity or not, or whether I’m not to be trusted. But beating up the angry souls of other people, is the only way she knows how to feel at peace.
After walking in the school, my host had started shivering. The wind was getting to him and he began to sneeze, but we soon decided to suck it up and walk into the building. Big girl and her purple eyes began to reflect through the host’s eye sockets to try and make her eyes appeal through his.
“Who should I beat up first, Master?” Big girl asked as she clenched her fists.
I stood by big girl’s side and stared through the vision, trying to find a very abusive target to crush. As soon as we begin to walk through the hallways, our host gets slammed into a nearby locker by a very strong force.
“I’m surprised you still have the confidence to step into this school!”
A very deep voice spoke; we turned our host’s head to the subject and identified it as a very large man with two other very large men who are laughing along with him. Big girl decides to do her thing; she picks up the host’s two big fists and injects her power into those fists making them glow. The large men showed through the host’s vision are still laughing and teasing, this was our chance, and they didn’t notice a thing.
“POWER CLENCH. FORCE. SUPER PUNCHES.”
Big Girl had started screaming those words; the memories of these guys from the host must’ve put pressure on her head. But somehow, these memories haven’t affected me.
“Big Girl! Calm yourself! You must resist the pain! Beat down these guys with as much as you got…” I commanded.
Soon enough, Big Girl came through and she started rapidly punching the biggest guy multiple times. She punched and punched and punched and she didn’t stop, not even when her fists started bleeding. When
“Our organization is set up here in America, we’ll be taking trains, since both of you are afraid of heights, we will not be traveling by air. (I hope they don’t have motion sickness either, or we’ll never get anywhere!)” Michael told us. I wasn’t so excited since I’ve got a bounty for my birthright, but it’s worth a shot, as long as I got Megan by my side I think I can pull through, the whole time I felt sick, and nervous. “Kodi I suggest you stay behind me when we get there, everyone in the Blood-Cross has an ability to sense demonic forces, they will target you easily”. We finally made it off the train, we were in a city...New York City, “Hey what’re we doing in NY? Do people know about this organization?”, “Of course! I’m surprised you haven’t heard of them before I told you!” Michael yelled, “We are heading to the main building”, we walked the streets of the city, shady characters in ally ways made me nervous, we just about there when we were stopped, “Michael, you have a demon with you, he can not come near the building!” Michael walked up to him with a look on his face, “I know I have a demon with me, he’s on OUR side, and last I recall, I am the strongest in the Blood-Cross! So don’t act like you’re the boss of everyone, Claire”, she stood there quietly, “Let’s go guys” Michael mumbled, we made it to the front door when we ran into even more trouble, “Oh great”, we had guns pointed as us, or to rephrase that, guns were pointed at me, “Michael why have you brought a demon here?! I swear tell me now or I’ll put a silver bullet in him!”, Michael stood there with an angry look…”Put those GOD DAMN guns down NOW” they answered to his command, and lowered the guns, looks like Michael actually cared for me…strange…”Michael, what’s with all the commotion?!”, a woman came forward, she was in a uniform, she had glasses, and had a book, it was full of stories written by Edgar Allen Poe, must be into creepy things…or she was emo…”Ah...so you brought him…come, bring your two friends we’re heading to the 5th floor”, “Yes ma’am”, we took the stairs, which killed my legs. “So, son of Satan-“, “I have a name you know”, she got mad for a second, but continued, “Kodi, I had a vision, I wasn’t sure if the demon was really you, but I had a hunch, but I want to see if I can trust you, I heard you had a goal-kill Satan, if this is true then I was wrong about the demon in my vision”, “Yes, it’s true! He killed one of the most important person in my life!”, “And who are you, little girl?”, she looked at Megan, “Little? You’re the same age as us? Actually, why are YOU the one leading the Blood-Cross? Why isn’t an adult in charge?!”, she looked at Megan like she was a fool, “Because I’m more mature than even the adults in this organization, all half of them do is drink at the “fancy bar” in the main lobby, damn thing should’ve been torn down a long time ago”, Michael was sitting there watching them argue, “By the by, I never got your name”, she looked at me, “That is not to be known, I just go by the name Bloody Mary”, sheesh what a name! “Well, I guess you two are official members of the Blood-Cross, but just know, I’ve got my eye on you, Kodi”, I just smiled, which may have raised her suspicion-uh oh-and now we’re members! “Since you will attract demons we can not have you staying in our main building, rather, even in this city! So we need your team isolated for a while, I’m stationing you guys in Alaska!” it went silent for Megan and Michael (~_~), I was cheering (^u^), “I love cold places! And if anyone gets cold I can use my flames to heat things up!” Megan and Michael didn’t agree with me, though. “Sheesh I wish you were Japanese so the Japan branch can deal with you!” Michael said depressed. We headed out, but a problem..”*on a private plane* WE’RE GONNA DIE UP HERE!” Megan and I screamed the whole way. “We should’ve went by sea!” We finally landed after a long flight, we were stationed in a small to of cabins and a few stores. “Well, looks like we’re here for a few months! We got settled in, and after a few days it seemed quiet…until one night…we heard screaming…”What the hell is that?!”, “RUN!”, we ran outside, there were a bunch of demons, destroying the village, “We know you’re here son of Satan! Come out and come to your true home!” Then I heard metal being unsheathed…Michael had a sword! “Guys, stay back, I’ve got this!” He went ahead and attacked them head on, “Michael I can help! My flames hurt Satan, so they should prove affective on these demons! “ he nodded in agreement, Megan stood there and watched. “Why do you refuse to come with us?!” their voices were raspy, “Because I am not going to a place of evil! I used my flames like a gun, and pointed my fingers in the shape of guns, though I looked like a fool. I burned them all to crisps, Michael sliced them up, “That’s it I’m calling the headmaster! We’re not staying in this cold wasteland anymore!”, he grabbed a cell phone, no service, he knew what was up, “She sent us out here to kill us! She tricked us! We’re heading back by boat, no doubt she paid the pilot to leave us here”, we waited till sunrise, we went to the coast and Michael paid a lot for a boat, “We’re going there by sea!” we were on the ocean for weeks, almost a month, surviving on fish, we finally made it back in New York. As we got back on dry land we had no time to spare, we headed straight for the headquarters, and we stormed through the doors, Mary was in the lobby, and Michael flipped out without hesitating…”YOU BITCH! YOU SENT US OUT THERE TO DIE!” he pulled out his sword, and pointed it at her neck, “YOU’RE GOING TO PAY!”, “Before you do, let that demon scum know that I never trusted hi-“ he slit her throat, in front of everybody, “She had no rights to leadership, she had no right to try and KILL us, I will take leadership, and I will make sure everyone is treated equal, and NO One, and I mean NO ONE will be sent to die” everyone ignored their former leader’s death, and accepted his “request”, he was a man of action. “Kodi, Megan, I am promoting you two as the second rank of your class, that is, you need to choose your class, What will it be? Swordsman? Rouge? Theres many to choose from!” Megan picked swordsman, I picked rouge.
A long journey has just begun…
