3. Training

      Helena thanked the girl - Piper was her name - and went to sit next to Percy at the Poseidon table - still with many of the boys' eyes on her. She saw Percy say something at his plate before a mouth-watering hamburger appeared in front of him. Helena decided to do the same and within a second there was also a hamburger in front of her - just as she liked it. Percy saw this and smirked. It appeared they had a lot more in common than Helena knew.


      Percy and Annabeth led Helena over to a group of about six people talking next to a - was that a lava wall? They all turned when they heard footsteps aproaching and suddenly Annabeth and Percy were conversing and embracing in hugs with the five others. Helena just stood there like a sour lemon not knowing what to say or do. And then, just as she was turning to leave, she heard Percy start to introduce her. 'Guys', started Percy 'this is Helena Troy... My sister'. They all started giving her handshakes and welcoming her to Camp. There was: Hazel and Nico, children of Hades (or in Hazel's case: Pluto), Leo, Hephaestus' son, Frank, a son of Ares from the Roman side, Piper who I'd already met earlier that day and Jason, a son of Zeus but he's Roman too. 


         Before there was a chance to converse more, Percy asked 'So, Helena let's see what you've got'. She started climbing the boiling hot wall of lava. Underneath her she heard other campers scoff as she accidentally burned herself slipping on the wall. She decided to show them what she was really made of. She summoned water to take her to the bottom of the wall. She then challenged the leader - a tall, broad, darked haired son of Ares. He gladly agreed. Helena thought to herself 'this should be fun'. She suddenly saw the open-mouthed faces of Percy, his friends and the rest of the camp. Apparently this guy is "hard to beat".


         'On your marks!' Helena walked to the wall. 'Get set!' She saw the son of Ares in the corner of her eye. 'Go!' Suddenly, Helena's vision was covered with orange. She climbed as fast as she could and before she knew it, she was at the top of the wall - with no certain son of Ares next to her. She looked down and saw him slowly making his way up, clearly angry at being defeated. Once he was inches away from the top, Helena realised he couldn't quite make it so she offered him her hand. He hesitated a second before taking it and hauling himself up. It was then she realised she didn't know his name. 'Uhh... Well done?' she offered. He replied - much to her suprise - but in an ice-cold tone 'Why? You won. Must've cheated'. He snarled the last part at her. She just told him 'look, if you don't want to be friends, we dont have to be. I'm just saying. My name's Helena. Yours? And by the way - I didn't cheat. It's called rock climbing practice'. He answered her 'Fine. My name's Mark. But don't think this makes us BFFs'.


         Helena walked back to her cabin, but someone stopped her.
