Staying silent, staying away from him... that was the hardest thing I've ever done.
And it was pretty much the best underwater kiss of all time.
It's hard to enjoy practical jokes when your whole life feels like one.
The last time I'd seen the Minotaur, he'd been wearing nothing but his tighty whities. I don't know why. Maybe he'd been shaken out of bed to chase me.
And when demigods use cell phones, the signals agitate every monster within a hundred miles. It's like sending up a flare: Here I am! Please rearrange my face!
Kronos would be 10 times more powerful. His very presence would incinerate you. And once he achieves this he will empower the other Titans. They are weak, compared to what they soon will become, unless you can stop them, the world will fall, the gods will die, and I will never achieve a perfect score on this stupid machine.
The Minotaur unstrapped his axe and swung it around. It was beautiful in a harsh I'm~going~togut~you~like~a~fish kind of way. Each of its twin blades was shaped like an omega: ?-the last letter of the Greek alphabet. Maybe that was because the axe would be the last thing his victims ever saw
Annabeth came up to me. She was dressed in black camouflage with her Celestial bronze knife strapped to her arm and her laptop bag slung over her shoulder-ready for stabbing or surfing the Internet, whichever came first.
My only thought was to keep him away from Annabeth.
There's no point in defending camp if you guys die. All our friends are here.
Because Hope survives best at the Hearth.
Patterns repeat themselves in history
Well . . . sure good to be together again. Arguing. Almost dying. Abject terror. Oh, look. It's our floor.
Daddy will explain. Come, he is blowing up monsters.
Perseus, you are not the hero.
We'll have to work on your bunny phobia later.
Everybody was patting Nico on the back, complimenting him on his fighting. Even the Ares kids thought he was pretty cool. Hey, show up with an army of undead warriors to save the day, and suddenly you're everybody's best friend.
Poseidon held out his arms and gave me a hug. I realized, a little embarrassed, that I'd never actually hugged my dad before. He was warm-like a regular human-and he smelled of a salty beach and fresh sea air.
When she kissed me, I had the feeling my brain was melting right through my body.
I felt like one of Apollo's sacred cows- slow, dumb, and bright red.
Running with a drowsy child of Hades was more like doing a 3 -legged race with a life size rag doll.
You Titans are about as bright as my gym socks.
I found myself staring at her, which was stupid since I'd seen her a billion times. Still, she seemed so much more mature. It was kind of intimidating. I mean, sure, she'd always been cute, but she was starting to be seriously beautiful.
Seriously, who has monogrammed pajamas?
I plucked a ruby off the nearest plant and threw it at Hades.
So I saved your life, and you repaid me by raising Kronos. That's fair.
If I couldn't trust her, I couldn't trust anyone.
Son of Poseidon? East asked. I nodded. Took a dip in the Styx? Hudson asked. Yep. They made digusted sounds. Well that's perfect East said. Now how do we kille him?
If you've seen a crab's mouth, all foamy and gross with whiskers and snapping bits, you can imagine this one didn't look any better blown up to billboard size.
