You've probably all heard of my brother, Perseus Jackson.
Sure, Percy saved the world a million times, he stopped the Olympians from succumbing to Kronos and Gaia, and his girlfriend Annabeth is now a professor at Harvard's, but trust me.
He is way overrated.
My name is Estelle Blofis. It's just my bad luck I get stuck with a name like blowfish while Percy, my annoying step-brother, gets to a Jackson.
I've complained to mom a million times, but all she says is she hope one day I will have the powers to turn into an actual blowfish at will. I don't think it's funny.
Oh yeah, have I mentioned I know Percy is a demigod? He gets all sorts of cool powers complete with his ADHD like a buy-one-get-ten-free package. He is able to control water, and is also able to suck me into swimming pools. I still don’t think that incident last year was funny.
I’m unlucky. I get a stupid name (who in the world names their baby Estelle Blofis?!) , a stupid mortal body, and stupid seats in class because the teachers all heard Percy once vaporized his math teacher. Ms. Peregrine, my Visual Arts teacher, even wore a face mask complete with a whole set of knight’s armor to her first period just because I was in it. The headmaster made her take it off, but still.
And, to make matters worse, mom never allows me to go to Camp Half Blood. She always says the campers aren’t people like me, which is just other words for “you’re too normal so they don’t want you.” I hate being normal, it feels like a curse.
I have short jet black hair and green eyes. I look a lot like a younger, more mature, and less ADHD version of my brother. (What, Percy?) Mom says I have his humor and wits, which I totally agree with. Last time I embarrassed Percy thoroughly in front of Annabeth when I said he was definitely into her.
My good luck helped me avoid getting strangled on the car ride home. Percy would’ve borrowed Alex Fierro’s garrote and put an end to me if Magnus had not pleaded nonstop. I’m convinced he only spoke up because he would not like me dying bravely, going to hotel Valhalla, and embarrassing him in front of Alex.
Alex didn't seem to mind.
I think it’s weird that Magnus and Alex never age in hotel Valhalla. One day I’ll grow to one hundred and will still have to call them Uncle Magnus and Aunt/Uncle Alex. You know, in case Percy and Annabeth—sorry my brother is watching.
Anyway, today is the last day of sixth grade. My report came out, and look, this is what I get. Every teacher compared me to Percy. Thanks a lot, big brother.
Class Name Mark Comments English: Mr. Parker (HEADMASTER) B+ Estelle has been a hardworking and cooperative student compared to his brother, who has let me down on the whole concept of children.
Mathematics: Mr. Whelsh C- Estelle is an outstanding student compared to her brother, who unfortunately vaporized the late math teacher, may she rest in peace. I hope she continues to grow and improve, and I hope I will not be vaporized.
Science: Ms. Chemi B Estelle has shown some improvement, unlike her brother who once asked me if I was a “natural resource”.
Geography: Mr. Mapp D- Estelle was a brilliant mind compared to Percy. It only took her sixth months to find my classroom while it took Percy three years.
Chemistry: Mrs. May A+ Estelle is a joy to have in the classroom, she never even once set my hair on fire.
Visual Arts: Ms. Peregrine B Estelle has raised my expectations for her family. She has only once made the mistake of pouring paint over my head.
