Goode for Demigods
Pro-log (3rd person POV)
The war was over, Kronos was banished to Tartarus, and Percy and Annabeth were dating. Surprisingly, the hardest of the three had nothing to do with destroying Olympus. Although, one could argue that the Crooked One's wrath had nothing on a fuming overprotective Athena. Yes, it was true, after five years of denial, jealousy, and just plain stubbornness, Percabeth, as Aphrodite put it, was created (and Connor had the pics to prove it ;D ). Nothing had really changed, they were still calling one another names, fighting over meaningless things, and trying to out do each other, but now, they were allowed to kiss whenever they wanted. And kiss they did, a fact that earned the two an unbelievably embarrassing talk, from Chiron nonetheless! The weeks blurred past, and before their ADHD minds could comprehend, it was the last day of camp.
In the Poseidon cabin, Percy was rushing to get it cleaned for final inspection. His duffel bag lie unzipped on top his unmade bed, candy wrappers were scattered all around, and his clothes hung from the upper bunk's railing. After sweeping, folding, and packing, Percy heard footsteps quickly approaching his cabin. His eyes widened, a few leftover Coke cans were still stashed under his bed and his trash hadn't been taken out. Quickly pushing the trash bag under his bed, he attempted to conceal it with a blanket.
"You managed to make the cabin look presentable, better than the Hermes cabin at least." Percy turned to see a smirking daughter of Athena. She was dressed in her usual camp t-shirt and jeans, hair up in a messy ponytail, with a clipboard in one hand, and a pen in the other. And in Percy's opinion, she had never looked more beautiful.
"Gee thanks," he said.
"You're welcome," she replied, bending down to inspect the surface of his dresser, "did you dust this?"
"I don't...yes?" frowned Percy. Annabeth raised a disbelieving eyebrow.
"You're a Seaweed Brain."
"But I'm your Seaweed Brain," he shot back with a smile. Rolling her eyes, Annabeth got up to leave.
"Time for lunch Percy," she called over her shoulder.
"Wait," he hollered, "how'd I do?"
"You passed, but give those cans to Grover, I heard he was running low." Walking toward the dining pavilion, Percy shook his head.
"She didn't even look under the bed," he chuckled.
"Campers," called Chiron, stomping a hoof, "I have a few announcements." Everybody looked up from their meals and waited for the old centaur to continue. "As you all know, the war is over, hopefully for good this time. Great sacrifices have been made and great victories have been won. I applaud all of you that are here today, and those who are not." A moment of silence passed before Chiron continued, "Many of you will be returning to the mortal world this afternoon, so the gods and I have come to a decision. All campers old enough to go to high school will be leaving for the year." Murmurs broke out at his announcement. All over the pavilion, people's faces showed a mixture of emotions: confusion, excitement, and worry.
"What about the monsters," asked Jake.
"What about us," asked a little girl from the Demeter cabin.
"What about the mortals?" asked Clarisse with a wicked grin.
"Settle down children," eased Chiron, "This is an unanimous decision from the gods. There will be no argument. The monsters have all but disappeared for now, and with the your experience, creatures that do attack will be no trouble for any of you. And Clarrise, there will be no maiming of the mortals. However, for a precaution, the younger campers will be allowed to choose whether to leave or not."
Taking in some of the campers' hesitant expressions, he continued, "Camp Half-Blood was created to train you all, to get you ready for the mortal world and for whatever future you choose. Times have changed, you need an education, and what better way to get it than to go to a mortal school."
Percy spoke up, asking the question on everybody's mind, "What school Chiron?"
Chiron's eyes took in a mischievous glint, "Why, I thought you of all people should've figured it out already Percy. Your friends will all be going to Goode High School."
Well, how was it? This is my first fanfic, so I kind of, sort of, have to know what you think. And if you haven't already figured it out, this it a multi-chapter story. Yes I know the plot is overused. And yes I know that this chapter is incredibly short, but keep in mind that this is just an introduction. The real chapters will be a lot longer...hopefully.
