Camp Half Blood
The three eldest sons of Poseidon sat on the beach as they watched the sun rise in the east. The three gods of heroes were the camp directors. They took turns as director of the camp; Chiron and Argus both continued to work there. It was rare that three brothers were at camp at the same time, but this was one of those days. The three gods lived part of the year in Atlantis, part in Olympus and part at Camp Half Blood.
"The camp is looking as good as ever King," Orion said to his older brother.
"Yeah, it looks better than when I left it," Percy admitted.
Theseus smiled at the compliments. "Chiron and I added a few more amenities. We have a basketball court, tennis courts and look over there," Theseus pointed to area lined off with volleyball net in the middle.
"Beach volleyball," Percy said.
"How do you know about those sports?" Orion asked curiously.
Theseus rolled his eyes. "I read about them of course," he explained.
"Of course you did," Orion said.
Percy elbowed Orion in the side. "Mister Know-it-all strikes again," Percy quipped. Orion chuckled as Theseus glared at his younger brothers.
"How are things with Annabeth?" Theseus asked with a smirk on his face.
Percy smiled as he thought about his girlfriend. "Pretty good; we're taking it slow, but I can't complain," he said.
Orion laughed. "Slow, so that's what the mortals call it when you're sucking face in public," Orion teased.
Percy glared at his brother, but the blush on his cheeks ruined the image. "Shut-up, I saw you and Artemis kissing the other day," Percy said. Orion's cheeks reddened.
"Gods, you two are so terrible. You don't see Athena and me acting like love sick teenagers," Theseus boasted.
"Yeah, you two act like an old married couple sitting in the library reading," Orion joked.
Theseus rolled his eyes. "That's not all we do," he defended.
"Of course not; I assume the maiden goddess thing has been knocked out of the way," Orion added.
Theseus's face paled. Orion and Percy both broke down in fits of laughter. "You finally did it Hunter; you broke our brother. He can't even speak," Percy said. Orion crossed his arms in front of his chest as a triumphant grin spread across his face.
Theseus's face turned red, but this time he was angry not embarrassed. "I'm going to kick your butt," Theseus said as he lunged for Orion. Orion stood up and ran off as Theseus followed. Percy laughed at the way his older brothers acted.
"Having fun cousin?" a familiar voice questioned.
Percy turned around to see Nico in all his black clad glory. "So the god of ghosts and shadows has come to visit his older cousin," Percy said with a wry smile on his face.
"Well, it's hard to catch you alone sometimes. A certain goddess of architecture is glued to your hip," Nico teased.
Percy smiled. "I need to get you a girl. You're too gloomy," Percy said.
Nico rolled his dark brown eyes. "Girls like the tall, dark and handsome guy," Nico said.
"Well at least you got one of the three," Percy quipped.
Nico shook his head in disgust. "You're so funny Perce, really you should have been the god of comedy," Nico said.
Percy's crooked grin spread across his face. "So, did you come here to joke around or is there a more formal reason?" Percy questioned.
Nico's face grew serious. "Your brothers and Lord Poseidon asked my dad to help you," Nico said.
Percy gave his cousin a curious look. "Help me do what?"
"I'm going to take you to see Sally," Nico said.
Percy's smile seemed to evaporate into the air. "I don't know if that's a good idea," Percy said.
"She misses you Perce. She's very proud of you." Nico stared at his cousin expectantly.
"You act like you see her all the time." Percy wore a guilty expression.
"I visit her, she was the closest thing I had to a mom, remember?"
Percy sighed. "Alright, you're right I need to see her." Nico grabbed Percy's hand before he ran off into the nearest shadow with his cousin. They erupted from the shadows into a beautiful garden. Percy looked around and the memories of Elysium flooded his mind. "Welcome back to Elysium."
"Where is she?" Percy looked around just in case she was in the park.
Nico pointed behind them to a secluded corner of the garden. A woman with shiny brown hair sat with a book in her hand. "I'll wait for you here."
Percy walked over to the woman and cleared his throat. All too familiar blue eyes looked up. Sally's eyes widened at the sight of her son. She jumped up and engulfed him in a hug. "Oh Percy, I missed you so much," she said.
Percy felt the tears stream down his face. "I'm sorry mom," Percy said.
Sally patted his back. "I don't blame you; I never did. You went through so much pain, but Nico and Hades both told me what happened. I'm so proud of you. You saved Atlantis and your father. You're a god now. I'm so happy for you."
The two pulled apart, so they could look into each other's eyes. "I should have visited you. I was here for two hundred years and I never saw you," Percy said as the tears streamed down his face once again.
Sally wiped his tears away. "I forgive you. I love you so much," Sally began. "I hear Silena is a hunter."
Percy smiled at the thought of his sister. "She's a great hunter. Thalia and Artemis are very proud of her."
"I'm so proud of both of you. I hear that you're back with Annabeth."
Percy blushed at his girlfriend's name. "Yeah, we're happy."
"Good, you both deserved happiness and you deserve each other."
"Mom, I need to get back before people worry about me." Percy looked at his mom sadly.
Sally hugged him. She pulled away and smiled. "I know you do. I'll always love you and your sister. Never forget that."
Percy grinned at his mother happily. "I will mom and I'll tell Silena. We both miss you and Paul. Say hello to the old teacher for me."
Sally chuckled. "I will, now go find Nico and tell him to eat more he looks too thin."
"I will mom, love you," Percy said as he walked back to Nico.
Nico smiled at the look on Percy's face. "Now that wasn't so bad, was it?" Nico asked.
Percy smiled before he pulled his cousin into a manly embrace. They pulled apart quickly.
"Let's never talk about the hug," Nico exclaimed.
Percy laughed. "My lips are sealed. Now take me back to camp before Theseus kills Orion," Percy said.
Nico nodded before he pulled Percy into the nearest shadow.
AN: A very short little epilogue. I had to put Nico in here at least once. The Sally and Percy reunion needed to happen. Thanks again and stay tuned to my other stories.
