The Exiles Return
Hey guys long time no see, sorry it took so long to come out with another chapter for any of my stories. i have been pretty busy lately with my senior year coming to a close and all. i have been working on editing for this story for roughly three months now and have only managed this chapter so far but im hoping to get the next few chapters out faster than this one. Im slowly getting the story done.
Chapter 1: The Quest of the Moon
My name is Perseus Achilles Jackson. I am 18 years old and a war veteran of the second Titan and Giant War. My father, Poseidon, had sent for me to speak with the gods.

"Percy, I just got an iris message from Chiron. Your father sent for you, he needs to talk to you in his palace."
"Okay thanks I'll see you later!" I shout to Annabeth and begin running to the beach. On my way to the beach, I passed a clearing where I saw Clarisse getting ready to bully a younger camper. I skidded to a halt and yelled out
"Clarisse leave the poor kid alone. Go wrestle around with one of your siblings."
"Or what, are you going to stop me?
"Don't go there right now, you and I both know that it'll end badly for you. Now go."
"Fine, but don't think this is over." She warned me before she trudged off.
"Hey, what's your name?" I asked him with a small smile.
"James." He replied quietly.
"It's nice to meet you. I'm Percy Jackson. How old are you?"
"Come on. I'm going to take you to see Chiron."
He was short, even for his age at roughly 3'9''. He had short blonde hair and piercing blue eyes that seemed to be able to peer into the depths of your soul… like Dumbledore's, I remembered sadly. Once we arrived at the big house, Chiron came out in his centaur form,
"Hello Chiron, I brought this camper to find out if he had gotten the tour yet or not?"
"I am afraid I haven't the foggiest notion who this young man is. What is your name son?''
"I'm James." He replied staring at Chiron in awe and confusion.
"Welcome James, welcome to camp Half-blood, Percy, would you mind showing him around please?"
"Of course not Chiron, come on James." I said. For some reason I felt a sort of attachment to the kid, he was familiar to me somehow though I had never met the child before. I quickly showed him around explaining what the buildings were and what they were used for. As we went through the camp the sights seemed to amaze him more and more as we went. The sword arena seemed to really grab his attention however, and I had a feeling that he would be a remarkable swordsman. As soon as I finished showing him around I told him to go find Annabeth and she would help him find a weapon that would fit him. We said good-bye and parted ways. I ran as fast as I could to the beach to see my father waiting for me.
"Sorry I'm late. I was showing a new camper around."
"It is no trouble Percy. Zeus needs to see you, it is very important."
"Alright, let's go," I said and he replied with a nod.
"Welcome Perseus. Our enemies are becoming more and more powerful. Atlas was freed several weeks ago and we sent Artemis to find where they were based however we lost contact with her about 45 min ago. I need you to go after her and find out what happened to her." He said solemnly.
"It took 45 minutes to tell me that she was missing." I growled at him.
"I-well you see- we-uh," he stuttered out before hanging his head in shame.
"Where was she last?" I asked through clenched teeth.
"She was hunting the loosed titans in the Colorado mountain range near the city of Fresco. The last report she sent in said that she was following at least two unidentified titans about three miles into the forest."
"Then that's where I'll start. Ill report in once I save her and she gets a good night's rest."
"Very well, I hope to hear good news soon, good luck Perseus." Zeus said before flashing out.
