Annaliese Masfeild was finishing up at the hospital like she did every day when a man with golden hair and tanned skin decided to whisk her heart away. He was just standing in the corner of the waiting room be he definitely stuck out like a sore thumb in amongst the pale and sickly people that we're waiting for treatment. She carried on her way home pushing the man out of her mind, This was the first time they had seen each other.
The second time was at a local cafe, where she had been taken to by her friends for a poetry night. Which she found completely boring. Until her friends went on stage and a seat next to her was immediately taken by the stranger from the hospital, who introduced himself as Aaron; A man who was new to this town and was trying to find a job, Hence why he was at the hospital.
Eventually the two started a relationship, even going as far as to get their own house, Half a year later Aaron disappered suddenly leaving a pregnant Anna alone in their small cottage type house. In the next few months a baby girl was born, a girl with her mother's hair and kind eyes, but her father's skin. Her name was Jaydania. That day Anna went home as normal, but when she went to put her newborn child to sleep she noticed a sheet of paper on the dresser with a golden ring beside it.
My sweet Annaliese,
I'm Sorry that I left so suddenly, and i won't be coming back anytime soon ( For that I also apologise ). But i will be watching over you and our baby girl. I hope she like the ring, I thought it was befitting for the daughter of the Sun God. I warn you that our daughter isn't just a human, she will cause impossible events to unfold. So don't freak out when monsters attack, Just kidding. Kind of. On the back of this page is an address, and when the time is right take our daughter there, Look for the Pine Tree.
I will see you again my love, That I promise
It was some kind of joke, Anna was sure of it.
School was the only thing that Jayde ever really had problems with, She lived in a nice little cottage with her mother who still works at the Hospital, She had plenty of friends. But school going smoothly was out of the question. It wasn't that she was hated by anyone, okay so there were a few people she wasn't on good terms with, it was the fact that words wouldn't stay in the same spot for more than a few seconds before flying around the page. Thus making it very difficult to understand, Every word was a new puzzle she had to work out.
Jayde loved to play out on the beach in the sun with her mother or sitting in her bedroom writing poetry, something that she loves to do as you can write all of your feelings down onto a page and feel good about it. Another pastime is going to the mall with her group of friends, Although she was always home before Dusk. Jayde's bedroom walls we're lined with pictures of Flying horses or a girl that was part tree. anything and everything can be found on her walls or in her artbook.
Although she kept it a secret form her mother, Jaydes dreams were plagued with the most random scenario's. Sword fights, Monsters, Nymphs, Magic. She always had a thing for fantasy, Her head was always up on some cloud thinking up an imaginary adventure for her to journey on. She also discovered very early on that she had a type of the disease called Anemia, Which makes her Dizzy at a random point in time and vaguely nauseous.
First Monster Attack ( Hellhound )
A 13 year old Jayde was walking home from school, taking a shortcut through the woods, Big mistake. As she made her way though the woods she felt like she was being watched, So she walked faster. As you do when you get the tingly feeling at the back of your neck. Out of nowhere came a Huge black dog came out of nowhere. Jayde's reaction was simple: Scream and get as far away as possible. But the car sized dog was fast and pinned her to the ground. all she wanted to do was wake up from this nightmare.
But this wasn't one of her dreams, as the thing roared in her face she looked to find something, anything that could save her. But the only thing surrounding her were trees. I'm so dead She thought to herself. She needed a weapon and fast, or that dog was going to rip her to shreds. She raised her hands to shield her face from the beast when her ring fell of her finger, It was the only thing her father had left her. To her amazement as i the ring landed on the ground it turned into a large knife, a dagger.
As it snarled in her face, Jayde reached desperately for the weapon. Her hand curled around the hilt and she brought it up into its gut. The dog whined once then disappeared in a cloud of Golden dust. breathing heavily Jayde made her way home, dagger in hand, not quite believing what just happened. She ran into her room away from the prying eyes of her mother and set the Dagger onto her desk, watching it turn back into the golden ring that now had a small name engraved on it Agno Fota.
There was no point in telling anyone, the only outcome would be getting her into a mental hospital. So she kept quiet.
Second Monster Attack (Stymphalian Birds )
The next year Jayde was enjoying herself at a beach, soaking up the sunlight. That is until a pair of birds started to attack her. Their razor sharp beaks digging into her skin. There were only 2 of them, easy. . . or not. Jayde took off her ring, hoping it would turning into the gold coloured dagger. It did, thankfully. She swung it wildly knocking down one of the birds that, like the dog, poofed away in in a flurry of golden dust that coated Jayde's hair. The last pigeon like bird flew at jayde with purpose, Seeming more determinend then the last. It was fast, extreamly fast, There was no way she'd be able to hit it by luck. Jayde took notice of the was it swooped onto her then up again, If she could raise her arm at the right moment the bird would fly right into it. As the bird rose and got ready for another attack Jayde pumped her hand into the air. With a cry the bird turned into gold dust. Jayde looked around carefully she noticed that nobody was sparing her a second glance, How could the not see the monstrous birds attacking her?
Jayde went home that day shrouded in her towel, hiding the cuts given to her by the birds. Her mother was working that day, so there was no problem getting in and patching herself up, she had always been good with the first aid kit. And Her mother wouldn't take notice if she wore long sleeved clothing, Thank goodness it's winter. She would raise no suspicion. Retreating to her room she drew a picture of the birds while they were fresh in her mind. The dog from last year was pinned up onto her pin board, she wanted to keep track of these. although she didn't know why.
Third Monster Attack ( Fire-Breathing Horse )
Jayde and her mother were spending the day looking after their friends' horses together. They had travelled across to New York and wanted the pair to Horse-sit for them. Things were going smoothly, it was just over a year since the last attack on Jayde but she was still weary of everything. Jayde and Annaleise closed the gate to the last paddock then sat down together just to talk. It was these Mother-Daughter bonding moments that Jayde loved. But it was interrupted by a fireball landing beside them. As her mother screamed, Jayde groaned. She was completely over this. The horse that had kept its distance from the both of them now had a mane and tail of fire.
Jayde took off her ring, a thing she does to entertain herself now, and prepared her untrained self for battle against the horse. She pushed away the sound of her mothers screams and the normal horses' whinnies, focasing instead on dodging a flame being shot at her. Approaching the horse quickly she attempted to stab it in the side, But the horse kicked it's flaming hooves at her in defense. Jumping back from the attack, Jayde looked for a blind spot on the monster, But to no avail. Annaleise relised what she needed to do and bravley moved towards the horse, getting it's attention. Jayde took the chance and plunged her dagger into its side. Coughing up gold monster dust she explained to her mother about the last few years as they sped home. Jayde knew that her mother would believe her, no one else could ever see the monsters. but for some reason her mum could. Her mother yelled at Jayde to pack her bags, so she did so even though it made no sense as to why she was doing this.
Annaleise, who couldn't believe that this was happening, dug in a drawer for the Card Aaron left her all the years ago. The address was still scrawled neatly on the back of the piece of paper. Annaleise and her daughter had a long trip ahead of them. To a place that might not even exist, But it was for her daughter that she'd do anything for. So she drove her 15 year old daughter to the unknown place.
They had been driving for a while now seemingly taking hours when Jayde saw a blur of colour out of the corner of her eye. Hurriedly she wound down the window and peeked out. To her shock there was some kind of Bird trailing them, But as it got closer Jayde realised she had a Women's head. Pushing her mother to drive faster she sized up the opponent. It was fast, fast enough to keep up with their car. And even from here she could see the razor sharp claws. This would definitely be a hard fight for Jayde, If she had to fight at all. Her mother had just started chanting words to herself "we're almost there" or "just a little further" so Jayde guessed they were almost there although she had no idea how her mother knew this. Then they passed a sign, it wasn't anything special. Old and worn, Jayde could barely read it. But squinting as they drove by she read heDlip wtrabyrSr vSiceer. Her mother translated it to Delphi Strawberry Services. Could this Camp Halfblood Anna have told her about have a cover name?
Jayde was thrown out of her thoughts when the bird/lady landed on the hood of their car. Anna slammed down the brakes in an attempt to throw it off, But it took to the skies yet again. Jayde jumped out of the car and got into a stance that would stabilise her. The winged lady dived down on Jayde leaving a gash on the 15 year old's stomach. Cringing Jayde realized that it relied on its wings more than anything else. She waited for the thing to swoop onto her again, then cut into one of the feathered wings. The women squarked and fell in a heap on the ground where Jayde thrust the Dagger into its chest. Racing back to the car, she yelled at her awe-struck mother to drive.
Anna couldn't believe that her daughter had that kind of strength inside of her. There was a large pine tree on a hill not far from here, she could see something golden curling around it. The pine tree reached far above the surrounding trees, Immediately she knew that this is where her daughter had to go. Annaleise stopped the car and got out of it with her daughter. Knowing there wasn't much time before another monster turned up she hugged her daughter close saying her goodbyes. She didn't know when her daughter would return home, or even if she would, but she had a gut feeling that this place would be the safest place for her daughter to be in. Jayde gave her love to her mother then turned towards the hill and sprint towards it. There was no telling what would be beyond it, but it felt like she was home.
Since arriving at camp she had met many people, among them was Garret Clover; who became her boyfriend. She has brought on girl to camp safely, a daughter of Nike: Evangeline Guerin. Jayde is currently waiting for a quest that she could go on.
