Five year old, Perseus “Percy” Jackson, and his mother Sally, were at The Swimming Pool of Doom. No one over thirteen could even dive in, and make it out.
Percy didn’t know why, but Sally knew he was the son of Poseidon, the sea god, and knew Percy would make it out alive,
Percy was hesitant. “Why Mommy?”
Sally sighed. “Honey, we’ve been over this. If you make it out of the pool alive, we get a million dollars!”
Percy dived in.
Sally watched in glee, as Percy stayed in the water for an hour. Finally, he got out of the pool, and a lifeguard blew his whistle.
Sally knew the lifeguard would ask a bunch of questions, so she pretended to be surprised, when Percy climbed out of the pool.
“OMG Percy! How did you do it?”
“Perseus Jackson!” the lifeguard said. He turned to another lifeguard. “Our trap worked. We’ve found the sea god’s son. Kronos will be most pleased.”
Sally couldn’t see through Mist as well as she used to, but she knew they had to be monsters. She grabbed Percy’s hand and ran away as fast as she could.
Percy Jackson and the Demon Lifeguards
A sequel to Percy Jackson and the Tale of Swimming Death
Sally and Percy ran from the titan lifeguards. Kronos was determined to draw in the gods’ attention by taking the life of a child of the main three gods: Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades. Percy was the son of the sea god, Poseidon.
Sally couldn’t let the titan lord’s scum monsters get ahold of Percy. If they did, Poseidon would hate her more than he already must have for leaving and going back to Mount Olympus after giving her a son.
The lifeguards crept slowly sniffing for the demigod. They were telkhines, which are like dogs with a bit of human. “We cannot upset lord Kronos. After what happened two-thousand years ago, and him being this close to rising again, he would not like it if we were to fail him like this,” one said.
“Why don’t we go after that Thalia girl?” the other asked. “Zeus is more of an enemy that Poseidon. Kronos would like her more.”
“Thalia is nowhere to be found. Percy is here. I can smell him.”
The telkhines turned and saw Sally face-to-face. “Hi,” she said. “Just a protective mom. Trying to keep my son safe. Maybe even overprotective. Let me demonstrate.” Sally grabbed a fire extinguisher and hit a telkhine with it. She sprayed the other one with phoam.
She took off with Percy more confused than ever. She just played “Hercules” on the VCR at home and Percy forgot all about what happened.
Back at the pool the telkhines exited the pool. “This isn’t over, I hope she knows. We have the demigod’s scent. There will be more monsters.” The two telkhines laughed an evil laugh.
