My name is Thalia. Thalia Grace. And I am Zeus' daughter. I'm a demigod. Years ago, I became one of Artemis's hunters.
One reason was because I could have a lot of adventures. And I wanted a better life that running away from other people all the time. Being a hunter gave me immortality, so I became more powerful than before.
The second reason was because I didn't want to be the hero in the prophecy. There was a prophecy that the next child of the big three (Zeus, Poseidon, Hades) that turns sixteen would get to decide to destroy the Olympus or save it.
So Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades made a promise to not have any more children with mortals. But unfortunately, they broke their promise.
I was the first demigod to be born after the Big Three made that promise. Percy was the next one. I honestly didn't want to be that hero in the prophecy, so I joined the hunt. That way, I wouldn't get any older and Percy would be the one in the prophecy.
I enjoyed staying in the hunt. It's really fun. I stay with the other Hunters except on Christmas, New Year's Eve & Day, and some other holidays. Except those days, I was hard at work.
Today's New Year's Eve. My day off. I visited Percy, Annabeth, and Nico and went to Camp Half-Blood to see how things are going.
It was dark by then. I decided to watch some fireworks before going back to Artemis. The fireworks were simply beautiful. I could hardly believe that a new year was starting soon.
It had been a great year. I had had a lot of fun and my life had really been terrific. I sat down on the floor, watching at those fabulous fireworks.
Suddenly, a blonde-haired boy sat next to me. He was adorable. I tried to remember that I wasn't supposed to fall in love, but it was uncontrollable. I was falling in love with that kid.
He said, "Beautiful, aren't they?"
I nodded. "They sure are. What's your name?"
"Niall Horan. I'm sort of surprised you don't know. I'm from the band One Direction," He told me.
I turned a bit red and said, "Um, I'm not really into the music thing. My name's Thalia Grace."
"You're really beautiful, you know."
I smiled. That boy... He was just too cute. We watched the fireworks together. And before I knew it, I was laying down on his lap, sleeping. I totally forgot about the promise I had made...
