The Dark Side of KonohaThe Dark Side of Konoha7 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
Uchiha Itachi carred out an order to kill his own clan, an order handed down by the two Hokages Advisors and Danzo. This is where the first glimpse of Konoha's dark side was revealed. The Third Hokage was helpless to stop this massecre, he was outnumbered and as Hokage had to do what was "best" for the entire village...
A few years earlier, before Narutos and Sasukes time, Danzo and the two Hokage Avisors planned the Uchiha massacre, but, three individuals stood in their way. Minato,Jiraiya and the Third Hokage, Danzo and the two Hokage Advisors knew that if they revealed their plans at this time they would be exiled. No matter how dangerous and untrusting the Uchihas had become over the years the three of them would not agree to such a rash action.
Then came that faithful night, the night that shook Konoha to its very foundation, the Kyuubi attacked. In the battle against the Kyuubi Minato sacrificed himself in order to protect the village he loved. Minato sealed the Kyuubi within his

All was silent in Olympus, though he was Poseidon's son. He was also more then likely the prophesied one and held the future. That and most of the gods had come to like him, or at lest not want him hurt or dead. "What do you think will happen, if this Gabe did hurt Pursues?"
"Apollo what the hell do you think Poseidon would do?" I glared angrily. I couldn't believe that I actually had started to see Pursues as son, as a brother as family. "No I mean what do you think Poseidon will do? Just kill him or turn him into something what do you think?" and like that Olympus was quiet again.
"It's only been three chapters and we have already taken him in," I mussed out loud. Apollo nodded "He's going to shake the very ground of the gods." Before I could ask, my father Zeus asked " But is that a good thing?" Apollo blinked obviously confused "It's what ever you make it "
"I moved them." We all looked up to see a very pissed

"Finally! He learns something; wonder if there's anymore fighting?" Ares yelled.
Confession time: I ditched Grover as soon as we got to the bus terminal.
I know, I know. It was rude. But Grover was freaking me out, looking at me like I was a dead man, muttering "Why does this always happen?" and "Why does it always have to he sixth grade?"
"Can't blame him, if someone kept saying that to me, I'd bolt if I was human that is." Apollo nodded seriously.
Whenever he got upset, Grover's bladder acted up, so I wasn't surprised when, as soon as we got off the bus, he made me promise to wait for him, then made a beeline for the restroom. Instead of waiting, I got my suitcase, slipped outside, and caught the first taxi uptown.
"East One-hundred-and-fourth and First," I told the driver.
A word about my mother, before you meet her.
Gods read Percy Jackson 10 I felt bad lying. I wanted to tell her about Mrs. Dodds and the three old ladies with the yarn, but I thought it would sound stupid.Gods read Percy Jackson 104 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Not stupid" Chiron said suddenly.
She pursed her lips. She knew I was holding back, but she didn't push me.
"I have a surprise for you," she said. "We're going to the beach."
My eyes widened. "Montauk?"
"Three nightssame cabin."
She smiled. "As soon as I get changed."
I couldn't believe it. My mom and I hadn't been to Montauk the last two summers, because Gabe said there wasn't enough money.
Gabe appeared in the doorway and growled, "Bean dip, Sally? Didn't you hear me?"
"She is NOT your slave!" I yelled standing up and dropping the book. It infuriated me how some people could treat others, especially women and children.
I wanted to punch him, but I met my mom's eyes and I understood she was offering me a deal: be nice to Gabe for a little while. Just

"You don't think?" Poseidon asked paling. "Minotaur " Ares said a gleam in his eyes.
We tore through the night along dark country roads. Wind slammed against the Camaro. Rain lashed the wind shield. I didn't know how my mom could see anything, but she kept her foot on the gas.
"Isn't that dangerous?" Hermes pointed out and asked the room at large, all he got was a nod from Hades.
Every time there was a flash of lightning, I looked at Grover sitting next to me in the backseat and I wondered if I'd gone insane, or if he was wearing some kind of shag-carpet pants. But, no, the smell was one I remembered from kindergarten field trips to the petting zoo lanolin, like from wool. The smell of a wet barnyard animal.
All I could think to say was, "So, you and my mom... know each other?"
Graver's eyes flitted to the rearview mirror, though there were no ca

I read the chapter title, my face paling. "He saw them" Apollo gave me a sad look "There's five book, he can't die yet, he's the main character" Hermes said nodding his head towards the other books.
I was used to the occasional weird experience, but usually they were over quickly. This twenty-four/seven hallucination was more than I could handle.
"Something tells me this boy's going to handle a lot worse" Athena said, not helping me at all.
For the rest of the school year, the entire campus seemed to be playing some kind of trick on me. The students acted as if they were completely and totally convinced that Mrs. Kerr--a perky blond woman whom I'd never seen in my life until she got on our bus at the end of the field trip--had been our pre-algebra teacher since Christmas. Every so often I would spring a Mrs. Dodds reference on somebody, just to see if I could trip them up, but

Silence met my statement. "Um why?" Hermes asked confused. "I think cause bathroom's have water " I answered looking to Poseidon who just shrugged. "Just read Apollo."
Once I got over the fact that my Latin teacher was a horse, we had a nice tour, though I was careful not to walk behind him, I'd done pooper-scooper patrol in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade a few times, and , I'm sorry, I did not trust Chiron's back end the way I trusted his front.
"And now I don't trust his back side!" I exclaimed. Chiron scowled glaring at me and the book.
We passed the volleyball pit. Several of the campers nudged each other. One pointed to the Minotaur horn I was carrying. Another said, "That's him." Most of the campers were older than me. Their satyr friends were bigger than Grover, all of them trotting around in orange CAMP HALF-BLOOD T-shirts, with nothing else to cover their bare shaggy hindquarters. I wasn't normally shy, but the way th

Gods read PJ 9"Who reads now?" grunting I grabbed the book, even if its ol' barnacle beard's kid, he was funny. "You know Ares, you actually have to read the book" Hermes said smiling.Gods read PJ 94 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The next morning, Chiron moved me to cabin three.
I didn't have to share with anybody. I had plenty of room for all my stuff: the Minotaur's horn, one set of spare clothes, and a toiletry bag. I got to sit at my own dinner table, pick all my own activities, call "lights out" whenever I felt like it, and not listen to anybody else.
And I was absolutely miserable.
Just when I'd started to feel accepted, to feel I had a home in cabin eleven and I might be a normal kidor as normal as you can be when you're a half-bloodI'd been separated out as if I had some rare disease.
I smirked as I watched Lord Zeus and his two brothers squirm in their seats. Hermes frowned as well.
The attack had scared everybody. It sent two messages: one; that I was the son of the Sea God; and two, monsters would stop at nothing to kill
