3. Chapter 3

I sipped the tea slowly, waiting in the big house for this Leo boy with Chiron. 

"So, how is the hunt going?" Chiron asked after moments of silence. 

"Not good. I keep trying to use and Iris Message to find his location, but it keeps shutting off after thirty seconds. Like someone is restricting my access." 

"Well, he was banished from the powers of the gods and sadly, that includes goddess Iris' powers." 

I sighed and opened my mouth to respond but the door burst open and a boy with curly black hair, dark wild brown eyes, pointy ears, a cheerful face, and a very mischievous smirk. Quite scrawny, but of average height, and his long, nimble fingers wound around a jumble of wires and pieces of metal. Almost like a Latino Santa's elf.

"Yes, Chiron?" He asked. 

"I would like you to show Alanondra around camp please." Chiron said, sweeping his hand out towards me. 

"Okay-" He froze when his eyes landed on me and I just waited. 

"Uh, hi?" I said. 

He came back to himself and ran a hand through his hair and smiled. "I'm Leo." He held out a greasy hand and I shook my head, standing up. 

"I kind of figured that. Alanondra Torrington." 

"Nice to, uh, meet you." I walked over to the door as he talked, his eyes following me. 

"Yeah, can we get on with this?" 

"Of course." He opened the door for me and I smiled at Chiron. 

"Well, it was nice to see you again. I hope I get to see you again before I leave again." 

"Indeed, come visit me tomorrow evening. I have some information for you." 

I nodded and followed Leo out. "You're leaving?" He asked after we'd cleared the steps. 

"Well, yes. I'm looking for my brother, but I need some demigods to help me. I was hoping for a sister or brother from my cabin. But anyone will do as long as its not the snob Percy Jackson." 

"You don't like Percy?" 

"He got my brother banished, which is why I'm looking for him. If it wasn't for that rotten son of Poseidon, I would still have my brother. Now, I've been at Camp before, so if you're close with him, just leave now before I blast you off your feet." I said, narrowing my eyes. 

"No, no. I'm most defiantly not close with him." 

I kept my gaze on him, I could sense that he was uncomfortable, but that didn't phase me. 

"Uh, would you like to, maybe, go, like out or something?" He asked, rubbing the back of his neck and avoiding my eyes. 

"Excuse me?" 

"Would you like to go out or something?" He repeated. 

"And where would you even take me?" I asked, crossing my arms over my chest and leaning on one foot. 

"I-I don't know. I'd have to talk to Chiron..." 

"Then go talk to him. Get back to me when you have an answer." I stormed past him, brushing his shoulder as I walked past, heading for my cabin. 

I entered in a huff and found only two girls and one boy in there. The girls around my age and the boy looked to be around eight. "Lou?" I asked. 

The girl with the straight brown hair turned to face me. "Alla?" Her face lit up and we hugged. "Oh my gods I've missed you so much!" 

"I missed you to. Hows it been here? I see we've got some new bunk mates." 

"Yeah, this is Blair and Scott." 

"Nice to meet you." 

"You too." The girl said. 

"Hi." The boy said and I smiled, looks like I'll have to adjust to camp life.
