The rest of sword fighting class went smoothly. When it was over, everyone fled the arena to go enjoy their free time before dinner. I was the last one to leave.
Honestly, I was a bit nervous to talk to Percy alone. I mean, I didn’t expect him to skewer me with his sword, declaring “there can be only one!” But at the same time I didn't know what to expect.
I spotted Percy easily— or rather I saw Mrs. O’Leary, then saw him. The Hellhound was on her back receiving a belly rub, her tail thumping on the ground wildly with happiness.
I read in my Greek mythology classes (should I still call it that, since the stories were real and all?) that Hellhounds were creatures of the underworld. They were monsters and, naturally, they liked killing demigods. So seeing one like this was comical in a terrifying sort of way.
I hesitated for a while, but made myself take a step forward. I tried for a casual smile.
“My dog likes to be scratched behind the ears,” I
Percy Jackson FanFic Ch.1"Now class, don't forget to read chapter 32 in your history books. It is about tomorrow's lesson." Ms. David announced to us before the bell rang. Ms. David was my favorite teacher, even though I was her most hated student. She always picks on me to read or answer questions, even though she is aware of my dyslexia. I believe she does that to help me.Percy Jackson FanFic Ch.1 by jk4eves
As I made my way to the exit, I was greeted by the usual insults and shoves by my classmates. I am use to these actions since I have already attended here for nearly two school years. I was actually surprised that I've been at this school for this long. As I began stepping down the tall flight of stairs, I felt one particularly hard shove against my right shoulder. This caused me to stumble and roll down the remaining five steps. Luck, my book bag broke my fall.
I rose to my feet as laughter broke through out the crowds of kids who hang out here after school. "Audrey, I hope you had a nice trip but for your safety I better not see y

I moved into the Poseidon cabin immediately that night. Chiron allowed Hayden to help me move my things while everyone else got to finish their s’mores and sing a few more cheesy songs. I felt like I was being exiled while a million pairs of eyes were on me.
Hayden wasn't very talkative during the move, unlike me, who couldn’t shut up when there’s an elephant in the room. I chatted away about stupid, mundane things (like “The marshmallows tonight were extra gooey” and “Do you think that cute Aphrodite guy is a natural blonde?”) in an attempt to ignore the problem.
I was not successful.
We finished loading up my stuff into my new trunk faster than I thought we would. I was putting the last of my camp shirts into the chest, yapping away about the ugly orthopedic clogs that the Aphrodite kids were wearing. Hayden was still quiet; I didn’t know if she was listening or not.
“So,” I said, closing the lid of my trunk. “Back the

I have to admit, going to camp definitely beat going to school. Granted the weirdness factor was still there; one of my classes was monster assault techniques, after all. And being taught by nymphs and satyrs was definitely surreal.
But for the most part lessons were taught by the head counselors of each cabin. I spent my days in foot racing, wrestling, archery, you name it.
Okay, so I got my butt handed to me in wrestling by the scary kids in the Ares cabin, and I managed to hit everything but the bull’s eye in archery, but I was getting the hang of Ancient Greek and for the first time I found reading interesting. I excelled at canoeing, which was something I always had a knack for since my dad taught me when I was younger.
I was good foot racing, too, though I wasn't faster than the dryad instructors, who were in fact trees. However it was Hayden who ended up smoking the dryads every single time. Even the instructors were impressed. Not too many campers could beat them in a rac
