How I Realized I was a Demigod
Written by Rhea
It was a normal Monday or at least I thought. I had no idea that day would change my life. It all started when I was walking in the hall and the bell rang. A whole bunch of people rushed past me to get to class and unfortunately just when I was about to go to class someone pulled me aside. It was Aria, the new girl. She was really weird so no one talked to her and here I was wandering why she pulled me aside but she gave no explanation. She was just mumbling to herself about the big three and she said something about another one until I asked her what was going on. She just said that she’d explain later and told me to come with her.
Obviously I thought she was nuts and refused to go anywhere until she explained to me why I had to come with her. That was when she told me I was a daughter of Poseidon of course. I thought she was even crazier then before because Poseidon was a Greek god who was a myth. Then she said something about why is this always so hard and asked if I’ve ever been expelled from schools and if I have ADHD or Dyslexia. I told her I did have ADHD and dyslexia and I had been expelled from six schools in six years and then I asked what does this have anything to do with me going somewhere with you and that was when I found out I was a demigod and Aria was a satyr and I think I fainted.
When I opened my eyes I was in a bed and I was being stared at by a whole bunch of people just then I saw Aria and asked her what’s happening she told me I was at Camp Half-Blood and the people that were staring at me were my brothers and sisters.
She introduced me to 2 of my brothers (Atom and David) and 2 of my sisters (Sierra and Cate) she also gave me a tour but I was so confused and just really surprised I had so many brothers and sisters that I didn’t listen after the tour I went to my cabin and changed into a orange shirt that said camp half blood and some blue shorts then I finally went to bed even if it was the middle of the day I was just so exhausted. I heard a bell and woke up, one of my siblings (I forgot her name) told me it was the dinner bell and as soon as I heard those words I ran to the dining pavilion I was so hungry that my tummy was making really loud noises which was embarrassing.
Just when I was about to take a big bite out of my food I saw people getting up and throwing a portion of their food into the fire which was odd and just then Dimitris explained to me that it was a burnt offering to the gods so I got up with the rest of them and the minute I sat down I started devouring the food when I was done eating Chiron the activities director told me I was on the red team for capture the flag he also said I had some free time and I should explore the camp.
When I was walking I saw the camp store and bought a bag pack for no reason then I thought I should give archery a try even though I’m pretty sure I’ll fail, after 5 minutes of searching which felt like hours I finally found the archery range but 6 minutes later there were 2 arrows stuck on someone’s shoulders it was a daughter of Aphrodite I apologized repeatedly but I think she despises me well I’m never trying archery ever again.
Surprisingly Chiron arrived minutes after the incident and asked her if she was okay and asked an Apollo kid to take her to the infirmary then he came to me said it was time for the campfire I told him I’m going to sleep early so I won’t be able to come to the campfire and then I went to the creek I didn’t feel sleepy at all I just didn’t want to go to the campfire and the water helps me think.
I thought it was time to prove myself worthy after the archery incident I think everyone else thinks I’m an idiot so I’m going to challenge someone on the blue team for capture the flag to a fight just when I was making plans I’d thought I’d ask one of my team members how it all works and that’s when I bumped into Gavin he was on my team so I thought of asking him but he seemed busy because he was mumbling something about getting revenge on Jojo anyway after I asked he said that I shouldn’t and that I would probably die but I didn’t care what he or anyone else said so after a while of warning me he finally said all I have to do is challenge someone and then he started mumbling again and walked away.
The next morning I went to the armory to choose my weapon, when I got their it was hard to choose but in the end I got a sword, armor, bracelet/shield and a dagger I strapped the dagger to my shoulder and I didn’t wear the armor I also took my bracelet I thought I might need it. When I was walking around and asking people to fight me they refused I was getting frustrated but just then Ivy came up to me and said let’s go it took me a couple seconds to understand but then I realized she was challenging me to a fight.
Half an hour later she took me to the infirmary and I think I was there for a day I couldn’t remember well I hate to admit it but Gavin was right but I was still planning my next move I would get a lot of training then fight again but definitely not with an Athena child I learned my lesson the first time Athena always has a plan.
