*Four years ago*
My name is Brooklyn, and I have a twin named Blade, we are children of Hades. Blade can control water and I can control fire, like the characters off our favorite TV show; Avatar the last airbender. Blade snores like a rhino when he sleeps. All of a sudden I hear shouting outside the cabin we share with another Son of Hades. I scream at my brother, "GET UP!". He falls out of bed still in jeans and his AC/DC t-shirt. "What!?!". "Somethings happening outside. We need to see if they need help.". We run outside to find two or three cabins and their members getting ready to fight. My brother creates and 'ice slide', and we both take off running. Not again, I think to myself, Ares, Hephaestus, and Apollo cabins are going at it again. We reach them in two seconds, and I scream at the top of my lungs, "ENOUGH! WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT ANYWAY!". I think I've scared them enough for one of the Ares' members to start blaming the other to cabins for something. I can feel the heat in my palms trying to escape, it seems to settle for a few minutes, but as soon as they start "fighting" again, I launch a fireball in the middle of their "group". All three cabins gasp and stare in horror as the flames get higher and higher. Shock by what I've done, I fall to my knees, and Blade puts it out with water. Great our secrets are exposed. In the next two weeks everyone that saw our powers forgets them, until Blade and I are called to the Big House. Chiron yells at us for some reason and then asks, "Why did you hurt an Ares' cabin member, Brooklyn?". WHAT! I scream inside my head. "I do not know what you mean, Chiron. I haven't been near any other cabins, except the Hades' cabin." I say. Chiron says that someone said that I was seen at Ares' cabin, and then again at the infirmary where the Ares' member was taken. I think back to two weeks ago, and the fight betwee Apollo, Hephaestus and Ares' cabins and about the fire and if it touched any of them. Chiron says, "You have a few options, but it's whatever you want to do.". I think over and over on it, Blade and I have already packed our bags to go back to our home in El Paso, Texas, we also might go to another place, so I say, "Chiron, if it is okay with you, I will leave, Blade stay here.". Blade lets out a banshee scream, "NO!" then he says, "I'm coming with you.". Chiron walks with us to our cabin, as I open the door I run into Nico. "Sorry, Nico." I mutter as I grab the book bags.
*Present Day (four years later)*
I hear Blade scream in his sleep. I know what's going on, he's having a nightmare about the minotaur that nearly killed me four years ago after we left camp. "Camp", I despise that place after what that Ares' member did to get me in trouble. I gently shake Blade's shoulder and ready myself for the punch to the arm. Blade wakes up with tears threating to escape his eyes. "I had that dream again didn't I?" he asks. "Yes.". "Sorry, Sis.." he says. I smile at him and pull a birthday gift bag from behind me. Blade's eyes become as big as quarters, and I say, "Happy 18th birthday, Blade.". He pulls a Metallica shirt out, along with a combat knife, but then he looks away and says, "I didn't get you anything yet.". I tell him, "I don't turn eighteen for another three hours, Blade.". I forgot to mention Blade is acutally the oldest by three hours. Later I awake to Blade rustling paper. "Hey, glad your up. It's been three hours, Brooklyn." he says with a smile. He hands me the same bag I gave him; I open it to find a t-shirt with "Team Jacob" on it (yes I know, I'm 18 and I still like a werewolf from Twilight), a new pair of combat boots, and the latest iPod and over one hundred and fifty-seven country songs on it. "Blade, you didn't have to do this. How did you get the money?!". "Nico helped.". Nico, I haven't heard that name in years. "Well when we see him, IF we see him, remind me to tell him 'Thank You'.". That's when I hear the cow/bear sound. "Run!". We take off running as soon as a Minotaur breaks through the brick wall. We reach the Rio Grande river, and the Minotaur attacks. It tries to attack Blade, but he uses his new knife to make a few cuts on it. I grab Backbiter, a sword that used to belong to my friend Luke before he died, it has a side made of tempered steel and a side made of celestial bronze. I scream a battle cry and charge at the monster. In one move I kill it, then Blade says, "We need to run.".
