Massie sat down on the mahogany chair in the Block Estate. Her father, William, had said that he had special news to tell her. "Massie...for the Summer, you and The Pretty Committee are going to Camp, but this isn't a regular Camp..." His voice trailed off. "EW-magawd! Are you serious? Camp is for LBRs with nothing to do," Massie grumbled. "Massie! This is serious. You have to go," William stared into Massie's eyes. She darted them to the pocket of her J Brand stretch pants. Her purple iPhone was buzzing.
CORY: U GOING 2 CAMP?
Cory was one of Massie's newest friends, and even though he was a boy, Massie only thought of him as a friend.
MASSIE: YES! R U?
CORY: OFC. WILL C U AT CAMP TOMORROW.
MASSIE: K. C U 2
"Isaac will drive you to Camp. It's not far," He explained. "Umm... okay. I'll just pack." She ran upstairs to get ready.
The new Camp was nothing that Massie had ever seen. It's sign said CAMP HALF BLOOD, and there was a tree, which Massie somehow knew was called "Thalia's Tree", with something called The Golden Fleece under it. She noticed that because she was taught Mythology at OCD. The Pretty Committee stared at everything. "Ehmahgawd," Alicia whispered. "What is this place?" She asked. "Camp for demi-gods," A familiar voice said. "Cory?" Massie asked, then shot him an explain-where-we-are-or-switch-schools look that he knew too well. "Here, we train the daughters and sons of gods and goddesses into heroes." Cory said.
"Imposs!" Dylan shrieked. Other campers started to form a crowd around them. A centaur stepped forward, and Massie knew his name-Chiron.
"It's true. You know all about Greek Mythology?" Chiron asked. "Yeah, of course I do, Chiron. Like Heracles and all those other stuff?" She asked. Chiron widened his eyes, amazed that Massie knew his name. Suddenly, something was hovering above the PC's heads. "They've been claimed!" Squeaked a camper. "I'll name their parents," A boy with dark brown hair and an orange shirt stepped out. "Massie Block, you are Hecate's daughter, goddess of magic. Alicia's is Aphrodite, goddess of love. You're just as pretty as your Mom," He flashed a smile. "Ow!" He shrieked, as a blonde girl pinched him. "Okay, moving on. Dylan is a daughter of Ares," He said. "Umm... cool?" She sounded like she had no idea who that was. "Kristen, you are the daughter of Athena, goddess of wisdom. You're Annabeth's half-sister. And Claire is daughter of... Apollo," He finished.
Later on, they had dinner, and the new demi-god girls went to bed, since they couldn't play capture-the-flag.
