2. A New World

Annabeth's P.O.V.

I was wrapped in Percy's arms fearing the future. 'How would the mortals react. What will happen to camp?' These thoughts were running through my head when I heard a commotion around the TV. Percy and I walked over and saw the news cast.

"Breaking News: The Greek Gods and Goddesses are real! What does this mean for the United States? We go live to the President now." The image cut to the President "My fellow Americans, are way of life is now changed. I promise this government will do everything in its power to protect our liberties. Now, if what these 'gods' say is true then the U.S. is full of monsters and most likely demigods." I turned to Annabeth "The gods never said that we existed!" 

"The Greek heroes were sons and daughters of mortals and gods, and if any exist in the United States I now call upon them to reveal themselves. I promise that no harm will come to you if you step forward." 

Me and Percy turned to Chiron "We should go forward, if they find out about camp and we didn't come forward. They will think we are planning an attack or something." Chiron debated this. "Only a small group will go, it should be you, Percy, Jason, Nico, Thalia, and Grover. Do not tell them the whereabouts of camp. And do not reveal all of your powers."

"Of course Chiron, we gathered everyone and Chiron called the press to meet us at the Empire State Building. We all stuffed ourselves into Percy's car and headed off. 

Percy's P.O.V.

We arrived at the Empire State Building surrounded by reporters and cameras. We all walked up to the 'stage' the gods had stood on moments earlier. I stepped forward and spoke into the microphone. 

"Hello, My name is Perseus Jackson and I am the son of Poseidon, god of the seas, earthshaker, father of horses. I am the savior of Olympus and defeater of Gaea." I was instantly swarmed with questions.

I began answering as many as I could. "We are demigods. Children of the gods and mortals. We fight the monsters people have been seeing with weapons that cannot hurt mortals." I pulled out Riptide and uncapped it.

People gasped and took a step back. "If one of you will come forward I will demonstrate." I cut my hand to prove that the sword was real, but the cut was quickly healed by Annabeth with some ambrosia.

A reporter  stood up and stood before me. "A few questions before Mr. Jackson. You are positive this metal cannot hurt mortals? And further more, what was that lemon square you just ate?"

I replied "This is celestial bronze and if you are mortal, it cannot hurt you. That square you saw me eat was ambrosia, food of the gods. Mortals will burn alive if the eat it but demigods can heal themselves with it in small amounts."

I turned to Grover to check that if the reporter was mortal. He nodded and I swiped Riptide across her hand. It passed through her leaving her untouched. "That's amazing! I didn't feel a thing!" she exclaimed. 

Annabeth's P.O.V.

I stepped up and we all introduced ourselves "I am Annabeth Chase, daughter of Athena, goddess of wisdom, crafts, and battle." A reporter quickly asked "Athena was a virgin goddess, so how are you here?" I sighed "Athena gives her children as intellectual gifts, I sprang from her head, like she did when she was born." 

Jason stepped up "I am Jason Grace, son of Jupiter, Praetor of New Rome. And yes, there is a difference between Jupiter and Zeus, it is like they have two different personalities." 

"So are there 2 gods or one?" a reporter asked.

"They are the same, but can change into one another."

Thalia spoke "I am Thalia Grace, daughter of Zeus and head lieutenant for the Hunters of Artemis. We serve the goddess under an oath to swear off all men."

"Is is just demigods that serve Artemis?" a reporter asked.

"No, we contain mortals and demigods alike."

Nico stepped forward "I am Nico di Angelo, son of Hades, lord of the dead and underworld." Followed by Grover "I am Grover Underwood, I am a satyr."  

I looked back at the reporters "We will have an interview later to answer all of your questions, but we must go." We started to get back to the car but "Where are you going!?"

I turned around "We all live at a camp, we will not reveal the location, but mortals and monsters cannot enter. It is one of the two safe place for us." 

"Safe, what do you mean?"

"Monsters smell our scent and attack us, but with proper training we can defend ourselves. Please, we must go now." We quickly got into the car and i drove off.

"Percy what are you doing you missed the turn for camp." Annabeth said.

"I want to make sure we aren't being followed, I am taking the long way with a couple extra turns." 

It took 30 minutes o get back to camp. "I don't think we were followed."

I took Annabeth's hand and we walked to our private cabin.

We laid on the couch and I wrapped my arms around her. "Are you ok?"

"Yes, Seaweed Brain, but I don't know for how long."

"We will be ok Wise Girl, I won't let anyone hurt you."

"I love you."

"I love you too."
