Chapter 16: The Roman Camp Wants You
"You killed the centurion of the 1st cohort," Elysia said, "This is bad."
"Well yeah," I agreed, "I took a life which is something I never intended to do."
"Let me through," an unfamiliar voice snapped.
"Who are you?" I asked turning around.
"Eric Zhang," he replied, "Now tell me why'd you kill my camp mate?"
"I-I didn't mean too," I said guiltily, "But anyway here's what happened. I had an arrow notched at my throat and the voice of the one who granted me power the most recently came into my mind telling me what to do. I concentrated all my rage and hate towards my brother into one of my clones and it blew up and killed him."
"Who gave you power?" Eric asked.
"Well two beings did," I replied, "One was Tri-God and the other one well I don't know."
"Tell me you at least know what powers he/she gave you," Elysia said.
"I have no idea at all," I admitted sheepishly.
"So you have powers that could emerge at any time and no idea what they do?" Eric asked.
"Pretty much," I confirmed.
"Then as a member of Camp Jupiter I issue this request: Come train at my camp."
"I have a few conditions," I said cautiously.
"Which are?" Eric asked.
"Three things: 1) When the time comes you and your camp will stand behind me against my brother and Chaos, 2) I can leave at any time, and 3) if they wish my friends can accompany me there."
"I have a problem with the second condition," Eric said calmly.
"Why?" I asked.
"Mostly because when you join up you must work with us for 5 years."
"What?!" I demanded.
"Standard procedure demigods, legacies, and now I guess transfers must all serve the legion for five years no one is exempt from this," he said in a much calmer tone than I was using.
"And if I refuse to go along with your big plan?" I asked hesitantly.
"You will not be forced to do anything but this would be the perfect opportunity to master your new powers."
"Fine, I'll go," I replied.
"We're going to," chorused Elysia, Michael, and Jasmine.
A/N: Sorry about the short chapter and long wait. I'm about to start working on the next chapter which will hopefully be longer. Everyone reading this please drop a review it would mean a lot to me.
