"Err...I don't think that Chiron will appreciate you calling him a horse!" Hermes chuckled talking to the book. "I do not," Chiron said serious.
I had weird dreams full of barnyard animals. Most of them wanted to kill me. The rest wanted food. I must've woken up several times, but what I heard and saw made no sense, so I just passed out again. I remember lying in a soft bed, being spoon-fed something that tasted like buttered popcorn, only it was pudding. The girl with curly blond hair hovered over me, smirking as she scraped drips off my chin with the spoon.
"Awww" Hermes and Apollo said at the exact same time.
When she saw my eyes open, she asked, "What will happen at the summer solstice?"
In barely a second the room went silent again for the hundredth time silen
Gods read Percy Jackson 10 I felt bad lying. I wanted to tell her about Mrs. Dodds and the three old ladies with the yarn, but I thought it would sound stupid.Gods read Percy Jackson 10 by twilighter99
"Not stupid" Chiron said suddenly.
She pursed her lips. She knew I was holding back, but she didn't push me.
"I have a surprise for you," she said. "We're going to the beach."
My eyes widened. "Montauk?"
"Three nightssame cabin."
She smiled. "As soon as I get changed."
I couldn't believe it. My mom and I hadn't been to Montauk the last two summers, because Gabe said there wasn't enough money.
Gabe appeared in the doorway and growled, "Bean dip, Sally? Didn't you hear me?"
"She is NOT your slave!" I yelled standing up and dropping the book. It infuriated me how some people could treat others, especially women and children.
I wanted to punch him, but I met my mom's eyes and I understood she was offering me a deal: be nice to Gabe for a little while. Just

"Well why'd you do that Chiron?"
"Yeah what'da poor bus do to you?" Hermes added after Apollo sounding like a mocking child.
It didn't take me long to pack. I decided to leave the Minotaur horn in my cabin, which left me only an extra change of clothes and a toothbrush to stuff in a backpack Grover had found for me. The camp store loaned me one hundred dollars in mortal money and twenty golden drachmas.
These coins were as big as Girl Scout cookies and had images of various Greek gods stamped on one side and the Empire State Building on the other. The ancient mortal drachmas had been silver, Chiron told us, but Olympians never used less than pure gold.
"Yum, girl scout cookies!" Apollo cheered a slight glazed eyed look.
Chiron said the coins might come in handy for non-mortal transactionswhatever that meant.
"WE know Anthena."
He gave Annabeth and me each a canteen of nectar and a Ziploc bag full of ambrosia squares, to be used only in e
Gods read PJ 9"Who reads now?" grunting I grabbed the book, even if its ol' barnacle beard's kid, he was funny. "You know Ares, you actually have to read the book" Hermes said smiling.Gods read PJ 9 by Moonlit-NightStars
The next morning, Chiron moved me to cabin three.
I didn't have to share with anybody. I had plenty of room for all my stuff: the Minotaur's horn, one set of spare clothes, and a toiletry bag. I got to sit at my own dinner table, pick all my own activities, call "lights out" whenever I felt like it, and not listen to anybody else.
And I was absolutely miserable.
Just when I'd started to feel accepted, to feel I had a home in cabin eleven and I might be a normal kidor as normal as you can be when you're a half-bloodI'd been separated out as if I had some rare disease.
I smirked as I watched Lord Zeus and his two brothers squirm in their seats. Hermes frowned as well.
The attack had scared everybody. It sent two messages: one; that I was the son of the Sea God; and two, monsters would stop at nothing to kill
