We all gathered around the camp fire, I was sat next to my new found friends that I had met - Shanea and Cora on my right with Demi (Demetrius), Emmi and Rick on my left. The golden orange aura shimmered around the fire as the sparks rose up and faded into the night sky. The crackle was barely audible above all the talking yet the the fire made it's presence through the smell of wood smoke that drafted up everyone's noses.
Then all of a sudden everything had a green haze. Similar to the shade of my eyes. As I looked around me I noticed that everyone had starting staring at me. Then I noticed it was at my head they were looking, so I looked up and saw a green trident, floating like a holographic image. I felt in my gut that this meant something, then it became clear. Poseidon was my father. It explained everything. The breathing underwater, being good at swimming, feeing calm and clear underwater. It all meant something, I wasn't a freak, i was something special.
Just as the green started to fade a glowing purple/black shade was glowing from from my left, I turned and saw Demi, glowing. His black hair fell from his face as he looked up and for the first time I could see his eyes, they were dark and mysterious, almost like a dark purple colour. His holographic image was of a skull. It was as though all of this Greek mythology came back to me and I realised that this was a son of hades. God of the underworld.
Then as that started to fade another colour was glowing around Shanea. An orange, fiery red colour flicked as the image of a flame appeared above her messy red hair. Daughter of Hephatsus. I was wondering what was the name for everything that was happening. It was as though I heard a male voice in my head saying "these are claiming, where immortal parents claim their children, there are many of them tonight". As I was awakened to reality I saw that Cora was bathed in a bright white light. A lightning bolt above her head signalled she was a daughter of Zeus.
Then to my left I could see Rick had an owl, glowing over him. A son of Athena, it's funny, he always had an intelligent look about him... Then I noticed Emmi, bathed in a flurry of snowflake like mist he had a snow flake fluttering over his head, it was found that he was a son of Khione the goddess of snow.
After we had all been claimed, Chiron piped up "now that all that excitement is over can each of the cabins please warmly welcome their new recruits and provide them with a bed and their living quarters. and with that we left the warmth I the fire and as the crackle faded into the crunching of gravel we traipsed back to our cabins, our new homes with the family we would now get to know.
