Chiron rubbed his temples with grief. He still couldn't believe it has been that long already. 160 years since Percy and Annabeth died, 155 since Grover died and turned into a poppy flower, 147 since Nico passed away, and 146 since Juniper passed away. Percy and Annabeth would have 185, Nico would be 181, Grover would be about Percy and Annabeth age in human years and Juniper would also be their age.
"They all lived a wonderful live," Chiron told Mr.D while playing pinochle. They been talking about their lives for the past hour, honoring their lives.
"Yea," Mr.D said looking slightly sad," Poseidon and Athena were crying for hours. It took Artemis and Hestia a long time to calm them down."
"I almost cried for an hour," he said," They all were wonderful campers, satyr, and dryads." Mr.D nodded in agreement and started to count his points.
"Drat! You win again Chiron." Chiron nodded and shuffled the cards for another round when there was a bright light. It came quickly and stopped as quickly as it came. On the table was a box. Chiron took our his pocket knife and cut open the top. Inside the box contained books and a note. He picked the note up and read it aloud.
"'Dear Chiron and Mr.D. I know you are upset about the recent anniversary on some of your camps top campers. Don't you find it strange that they all passed on the same day but different years apart? Anyways, here are the books containing their adventures. I know at one point it will mention the other campers later. Aka Jason, Piper, Leo, and the Romans. Have your top campers read them. P.S. Artemis said Thalia has been grieving for hours. She is sending her to camp to read the books with the other campers. Don't tell the campers that she knew them. They will have to put two and two together. The greatest god ever- Apollo.'"
"While Thalia is coming back," Mr.D said.
"Yea but she most be so upset right now. Her best friends are gone and so is her brother. Now she is going to read about their adventures. How will she react?" Chiron asked.
"I will be upset but I will hide my pain and remember all the good times we had," a voice said behind them. They looked and saw Thalia standing there with her Death to Barbie tee shirt.
"Hello Thalia. How are you doing?"
"Fine," Thalia said," Now where are the campers I am going to read with?"
"I will gather them and you guys can read in the around the campfire," Chiron said. Thalia nodded.
"Ray!" Mr. D yelled to a boy with short, wavy black hair and green eyes who happened to be walking by the big house. He also happened to be one of the campers that will be reading the books with his very close friends, one of them being his little brother. There were eight of them who were either fifteen, sixteen, or seventeen. He happened to be seventeen.
"Yes?" he asked.
"Go gather your group of friends and tell them to go to the campfire area, you included. You are the only people that should be in there and if there is anybody in there, kick them out. Stay there till Chiron comes and tells you why your there," Mr.D said. Ray nodded and ran toward the cabins.
"We will give him a few minutes and go down there. Also when I introduce you, your name will be Sami Grace. I needed to change your first name in case they mention your real name in any of the books. I want them to figure out who you are first. I just decided your last name will be the same," Chiron said to Thalia and she nodded. She couldn't wait to read the stories of her friends past adventures even though she was sad at the same time since they weren't here anymore.
I was sitting on my bunk, playing my guitar with my lucky pick, when I heard a knock at the door. Even though I was the counselor for the Apollo cabin, and I am only fifteen, I didn't want to open the door. I was busy playing my guitar so I was going to let one of my siblings answer it then I released I was the only one in the cabin. I set my guitar down and jumped from my top bunk to the floor. I opened the door to reveal Ray Williams. He is one of my good friends even though he is two years older than me.
"Hey Ray," I said.
"We are needed at the campfire area. Only us and our little group," Ray said.
"Do you know why?"
"Nothing really. Only that we have to wait for Chiron to come and tell us."
"Oh. Do you want me to help you get the others?" I asked.
"No you're the last one." he said," Come on."
I nodded, shut the door, and followed him to the campfire. When we arrived, everyone was already there. I took a set next to my boyfriend Cayden. Cayden Davis is sixteen and has green eyes and short, straight brown hair. He sat next to Nathan Hale, who is also sixteen, has dark blue eyes and short, straight blond hair with a single blue streak. We are the only ones in our group of friends that has part of their hair highlighted. I have bright green highlights in my medium length, wavy, semi-straight black hair. He sat next to Dylan, Ray's little brother, who is fifteen and has brown eyes and wavy black hair that goes to his chin. You can tell their brothers even though they have different eye colors and hair length. Dylan sat next to Jaycee Jean, who is also fifteen and has orange eyes and very curly, shoulder length red hair. Next to her was Shale Anderson but he likes to be called Shay. He is sixteen, has blue-green eyes and short, curly red hair. He sat next to Ella Jamison. She is seventeen and has hazel eyes, really straight shoulder length brown almost black hair. Ray sat next to her since she is his girlfriend.
"Okay Ray," Cayden said," tell us why we are here."
"I already told you. I don't know," Ray said," Mr. D just told me to get you guys and wait for Chiron."
"Then we will just wait for him," Jaycee said. We nodded and after a few minutes, Chiron walked in with a fifteen year old girl. She had spiky black hair and blue eyes and most really dislike Barbie's from her tee shirt she was wearing.
"Hey Chiron," I said," Who's that?" Ray told us while we were waiting for Chiron that we will be the only ones here.
"This is Sami and she will be joining you in reading some books," Chiron said.
"Wait reading?" Shay asked and Chiron nodded. "Why are we reading and why is she here?"
"For your first question yes you will be reading to learn about the past. And why Sami," Chiron said saying her name quite loud," is here is because she will be reading with you. Why? You will have to figure that out as you read." Sami sat on the ground and looked kinda of sad for a moment. It only lasted for a second till Chiron looked at her and she turned happy. "Maybe I should introduce you fully," Chiron said," This is Sami Grace. Her parent will remain a secret till you figure out why she is reading with you. Sami meet Talia Rick, daughter of Apollo," he said pointing at me. I swear I seen her say to herself "Red eyes? I never seen a child of Apollo have red." I shook my head. I probably heard her wrong. "Cayden Davis, son of Ares, Nathan Hale son of Aphrodite," he looked at Thalia and mouthed is like Piper. Who the heck is Piper? "Dylan Williams, son of Hermes, Jaycee Jean, daughter of Iris, Shale Anderson, call him Shay, is the son of Hecate, Ella Jamison, daughter of Demeter, and Ray Williams, son of Hermes. Any questions?"
"What are we reading?" Ella asked.
"A book Apollo delivered. It is about one of the campers and his friends. It takes place a while ago," Chiron said looking grim as he said that and so did Sami but they regained their composure," It is about time to you learn the history of one of our most important campers. You can read in any order you want but you all have to read one chapter each." We nodded and he handed a book to me and left. Sami sat there looking kinda sad.
"Sami you can sit next to me if you want," I said. She nodded and sat next to me.
"Talia you can start first, then Sami, than Cayden, and then will go down the line," Nathan said. I nodded.
"Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief," I read aloud.
