((Excuse lack of paragraphing. :3 Capture Le Flag ish happening.)) I made no sound as I weaved in and out of the trees. My feet flew so fast that my hair streamed out behing me as I ran, a shiny banner of brunette. The world was a blur. Tree. Bird. Bush. Bird, stream, tree, trew, bush, stream, tree. I saw bits and pieces as I dashed to enemy base. My persuers had fallen far behind me. As soon as I rounded the giant boulder ahead, I would grab the flag and be gone. My team would win. I could hear the cheers of the red team now, and blue team's groans in defeat. I had nothing to worry abou— SMACK. I clonked heads with Leo as I rounded that corner. Rock, tree, Leo, fround. Dirt, dirt, dirt! I got up dizzily and clutched my throbbing temple. "Arrrgh! Leo Vdez, when I get my hands on you–" I shouted as I whirled around to face him. He grinned up at me from where he lay, his helmet lopsided. "Hey, princess!" He got up and straightened his helmet. "You know, I think it would be FANTASTIC if you got your hands on me." He brushed the dirt off of his tunic and looked at me with a half-smile. I glanced quickly at the flag, which was about ten feet away. When I returned my gaze to Leo, he was staring at me, and he looked like he was about to fall over. I lunged at him and shoved him over, yelling, "THINK FAST, HAMMER KID!" Then I took off running towards the flag. I seized it and turned around. Jason came running around the boulder and tripped over Leo. "Leo, I told you to..." he stared in shock as i dashed forward and leaped over the two of them. Just before I was out of sight, I stopped and waved at the two, giving my best smile and flitting away. Leo grinned and waved back. Jason eyed both me and Leo, trying to decide which of us to smack first. But I was long gone before either of the could do so much as open their mouths. On the way back, I took a different path. I sprinted into the stream and almost feel because the rocks, and as soon as I regained my balance, I took of again, with more speed and energy splashing through the creek because of the water. The world once again became a blur. Rock, water, water, rock, branch, water, rock. Too bad it wasn't that easy. Suddenly my brother Percy flew out of the trees in front of me, Clarrise in close persuit. I could see he was running out of steam, his brow soaked with sweat and his sides heaving. ((Please post..))
