9. The Surprise

Months had passed since Percy and Helena's conversation with their father. Percy still refused to tell Helena what Poseidon wanted to talk to him about. She felt a desperate need to ask her sibling about what seemed serious conversation with the Sea God they called their father. All she knew was that Percy had somehow changed. Whenever she talked or even looked at Mark - even though it was usually glares and death threats - Percy still got extremely protective of his younger sister. He also pushed Helena harder in training and made sure she spent as much time as possible training. They would often sword fight and train in the amphitheatre during meal times in order to improve Helena's skills.

It was mid July and Helena was in Cabin 3, lying in bed - preferably for as long as possible - as it was only 8 a.m. She was utterly shattered from the night before's activities. She and Percy had trained for the majority of the day before the whole camp had a game of capture the flag in the evening. Although, to be fair, Helena did enjoy the activity. Since the Titan and Giant wars, there weren't a lot of capture the flag games so she couldn't miss it.


Helena just started to open her eyes when she heard the door creak open. She leaped out of her bed far too quickly - everything went weirdly blurry. She looked at the door and realised there was a note. Helena opened it, hesitantly. The note stated that she needed to go to the Aphrodite cabin by 8;05 a.m. 5 minutes from then. Helena rushed and put on her Camp Half-Blood t-shirt and whipped her hair up into a ponytail, not really caring what it looked like as she was in such a rush.


She reached the Aphrodite cabin with seconds to spare. Helena knocked twice and was about to knock a third time when the door flew open. There was a massive uproar of campers yelling "Happy Birthday!" as loud as their voices would stretch. Of course. Helena had spent so long training and sword fighting that she'd forgotten about her own birthday. She quickly remembered the large sum of campers before her and thanked and hugged as many as she could. Out of the corner of her eye, Helena saw Mark with what seemed like a smile on his face. She had no idea what he was doing there but he walked up to her nonetheless and said "well then, happy birthday Pegasus poop".

"May I remind you Mark, this 'Pegasus poop' beat your ass in a duel. Which we've yet to talk about" Helena countered.

"Oh, just... Okay? I just said happy birthday Pegasus Poop... Gods" Mark reminded her.

"Yeah... ok, I guess. Thanks" she told him. Mark then surprised her by giving her a gift and kissing her on the cheek. She doubted he realised what he was doing.


Once she saw he had moved to the other side she opened the gift. Inside was a small trident locket with 'Pegasus poop' carved into the stem. She smiled to herself before putting it on.
