“Oh come on, not again.” I complained to my best friend Alice.

She kept nagging me, it was so annoying. She thought I was going to die rock climbing on the famous Mount Everest. “Who cares, I’m the awesome Victoria and I can do anything!” Somebody whispered”Your parents would not like you to do this.” “I don’t care. They abandoned me when I was two” , “They’re jerks!”I shouted at the top of my voice. I stormed up to the bottom of the mountain and started climbing. I did not care that I was probably going to die as most people did when climbing Everest. But the fact that somebody had the guts to talk to me about my mother and father scared me. I hiked and hiked until it started to get dark,I lied down on the rough mountain and tried to sleep. The next day I woke up and started hiking and hiking.When it started to get dark I slept on the cold ground. The next day I hiked and hiked,you get the routine. After a week, I was nearly at the top. The thing that disturbed me the most were the dead bodies. I’m not going to talk about it. I am dying to tell you this, there was this tiny gold cottage with a eagle carved on the door. I was now sprinting to the top of the mountain with all the strength I had left until I was finally there. I slowly took a step into the cottage,opened the door and wow!


There was a humongous golden door. I again saw a golden eagle carved on the door, randomly. I was about to faint because I had never seen a door so brilliant before. All of a sudden the door flung open, inside it looked like a normal janitors room. Someone in my head told me”Go inside the door,somebody important is waiting for you.” Another voice said”don’t go sweety. You will be depressed if you go inside.” I started trembling,who were these voices, I had never felt scared before but this time I felt terrified. Someone important was waiting for me in there, I had to go and look.I was to curious. I took a step into the janitor like room and slowly opened the door on the other side of the room.


Blue sky,Green trees and pretty flowers were everywhere. “Where am I?” In front of me there was a pretty girl with blonde hair and blue eyes just like me. She said “Hello I’m the daughter of Athena” in a soft voice. “Who?”I asked. “Okay you have a lot of catching up to do. Athena, goddess of wisdom and queen of this world! BTW my name is Maddy. Lets bring you to Athena’s castle and she will decide what to do with you.” I was confused about what was happening and where I was. One minute I was at the summit of Mount Everest and the next I am in a different world. Maddy and I were walking to the castle in silence and I was admiring the landscape. We had finally arrived and the castle was gigantic with another eagle carved on the door. Maddy and I awkwardly held hands to comfort me and stepped in to the palace. I was trembling again,what was wrong with me today I was usually so brave. We entered the throne room. There sitting on the throne in all her glory was Athena,I bowed. The god said”Hello. I am Athena,Welcome” “Thanks my name is Victoria.”I tried to sound confident. A gasp went around the room,I felt scared and for once I wanted my mom with me. Athena told me”What’s your last name sweety?” “Lenner. My parents left when I was Two”. “I know honey. I’m your mom. Your mom is goddess of wisdom and your father is the god of messengers. We had to leave you when you were two, so you could grow up and learn to be brave and strong. You are a demigod. You are half god and half mortal.” The room began to spin, my breathing began to slow down, the light began to get darker. I didn’t know it but I was falling to the ground and had fainted.


I woke up on the the floor of my mom’s castle. The only thing I remembered before fainting was that I had met my mom that had left me when I was two years old. She’s alive ,I wonder if my dad’s around the castle also. “Are you really my mom?, I asked. “Yes dear” she said smiling. “Is my dad here also?” I pleaded. Her face changed and she now had a frown on her face and told me the story. She told me that my dad had become evil because he had been overtaken by hate and dread. She planned to go to war with him. Somehow that did not surprise me. You have not heard the worst of it, I was to choose a side to accompany. The decision was easy to make. My dad was a bad guy so obviously I would follow my mom into battle. Athena smiled and then shouted ”Kyley,we have a kid to train and she’s my daughter.” training and sword fighting. I had a feeling I had to fight Kyley, so I turned my pencil into a sword. Surprisingly, I was good at sword fighting i had a natural gift. As I got carried away and lost in the moment of fighting I reached out and sliced Kyley’s arm. It was not a deadly slice but blood began to gush out. A shock came over her face that gradually faded into a smile and thats when I learned I was good at sword fighting.


Ahhhhhhhhhh! Today was the day we would go to war,I was so frightened and scared,I ran into my moms castle. She was sitting on her throne trying to have a brave smile on her face. She told me ”don’t be disappointed if we lose, be brave and fight well.” I shook my head and threw the thought of losing from my mind. I was ready to fight this battle and win. Kyley would be by my side throughout the battle to help me if I needed it. I could just see a bandage of the cut on her arm that I had made and hoped I could do it again against the enemy. Kyley and I walked outside of the castle. A mountain of a man was standing outside of the castle. He boomed ”I’m the guard of Hermes. Don’t you dare try to kill me.” I was not scared of the mountain man and took my pencil and turned it into a sword. I stabbed him in the leg since he was too tall to stab anywhere else. Nothing happened, he carried me by the arm and threw me far away. Owwwww!!!!! My arm was bleeding and my face was full of cuts.I tried to stand up but my foot was glued to the ground. I touched my ear to see if anything was wrong, on the top of my ear was the pencil. I do remember Kyley saying something about this pencil retuning after you lost it. I wanted to kill the soldiers,I used all my might and stood up. Unfortunately I did not have much strength and I fell down. I took my pencil out of my ear and turned it into a sword. I was determined to help my mom,I could sense she was in trouble. I used all my might and stood up and didn't fall down this time. I ran to the fields where people were fighting for their lives and for Athena or Hermes. I saw my mother sitting on her throne at the edge of the field. She looked worried and asked ”What happened to you?You are so bruised, i’m sorry but you are not ready to participate in this war. Please go back to the castle and to your room you will be safe there”. I reluctantly listened to her and limped back to the safety of the castle.


I woke up on the the floor of my mom’s castle. The only thing I remembered before fainting was that I had met my mom that had left me when I was two years old. She’s alive ,I wonder if my dad’s around the castle also. “Are you really my mom?, I asked. “Yes dear” she said smiling. “Is my dad here also?” I pleaded.

Somehow that did not surprise me. You have not heard the worst of it, I was to choose a side to accompany. The decision was easy to make. My dad was a bad guy so obviously I would follow my mom into battle. Athena smiled and then shouted ”Kyley,we have a kid to train and she’s my daughter.” A tall girl came out with a dull, grey armour suit for me. She told me”Come along,we're going to find you a sword. She had a weird Irish accent. Kyley and I walked to a golden cupboard full of swords. Kyley selected a gold sword that looked very old but it felt heavy in my hands. Then a cream white pencil caught my eyes, I took the pencil and then it turned into a silver sword. Kyley told men “If you are the owner of the sword and you lose this sword it appears on the top of your ear”. I took the sword,it felt good in my hand and it was the perfect height and size for me ,I told Kyley that I was going to take this sword as it felt special and would protect me.


Kyley then took me to a strange field where people were training and sword fighting. I had a feeling I had to fight Kyley, so I turned my pencil into a sword. Surprisingly, I was good at sword fighting i had a natural gift. As I got carried away and lost in the moment of fighting I reached out and sliced Kyley’s arm. It was not a deadly slice but blood began to gush out. A shock came over her face that gradually faded into a smile and thats when I learned I was good at sword fighting. Ahhhhhhhhhh!

Please go back to the castle and to your room you will be safe there”. I reluctantly listened to her and limped back to the safety of the castle. I felt useless as I really wanted to fight for my mother and make her proud. I had spent my whole life away from her and now she may be lost from me again in this war. My bruises had began to feel fine and I was yearning to get back to the battle. So I sneaked out of the castle and back onto the fields. I used my pencil sword and slashed it across a soldier's back. Maddy and Kyley were working their way through the battle field and were killing a lot of soldiers. I ran up to them to join Maddy and Kyley. We all worked together to protect Athena. At that moment a horn sounded and everybody split up into two sides. I wondered what was going on. Just then a man walked through the crowd holding up an eagle flag. He shouted ”Athena has won the war!!!”


At once all soldiers on both sides knelt down and lay down their weapons . Hermes soldiers then departed and Athena’s soldiers went back to the castle to celebrate the victory. The next day a celebration feast was prepared and the wounded soldiers received treatment. Everybody in the kingdom came. I introduced them to some awesome music from earth ,and ate cake ...I was drooling when the four layer cake came out of the oven to conclude the feast. I would have to return back to my normal life soon so I made sure I made the most of this moment. As I was preparing to leave Athena promised that I could return and thanked me for my bravery in the battle.


My parents are immortal
