1. Penelope's Recap

"It's me Penelope Jackson signing on again. I believe the last we spoke the battle of Unknown was won by the demigods, I got a visit from my parent's shadow selves, and I returned home to Camp Half-Blood with my friends as well as our newest camper Adam Grace. We also learned that my parents were kidnapped to Taurus a hell for monsters and baddies, and that I have to lead my friends on a quest to the Ancient lands. The point of the quest is to restore a prophecy that will unite the gods and their demi-god children. With me so far? Awesome.

"Penelope who are you talking to?"

Seriously? We're doing this again?

"Just let me know when your done then."

Thank you! Okay let's get this show on the road before I loose my train of thought, trust me there's a lot to tell. It all started when we got back to camp...almost a whole year since last summer...



"You better get out here! Brynna's gonna kill Adam for sure this time!"


This has been a real problem lately, every since Adam was sent to Camp Half-Blood, things have been...tense. Adam and Brynna haven't shared the same space since they were kids, and now that they were together again, Brynna was less than happy.

"You are not staying here!" Brynna had shouted after Adam tried moving his things into her bunk. So now he occupies the Zeus cabin, while Brynna is the head of Aphrodite's cabin. Then there was the issue of chore time and training workouts and suddenly Adam was everywhere. Brynna was not very happy especially when she was trying to score dates with particular guys.

This incident today was pretty much like every other day. Adam was crossing Brynna's imaginary line and just pushing it. At the moment, Adam was running through the fields Brynna catching up quick and she had her bow in her hand...loaded with explosive arrows. Immediately I ran with Konnor to the fields and shouted,

"What happened now?!"

"Adam did something stupid and Brynna is trying to kill him!" Konnor shouted.

"Way to be specific!"

We intercepted the siblings and Konnor tackled Brynna to the ground and I grabbed her arrows, the worst she could do at this point is strangle him with the bow...I think that's the worst. Brynna was muttering all sorts of Greek curses at Adam and Konnor, and Adam was busy trying to catch his breath.  After we were sure Brynna was calm Konnor stood her up and then she attacked Adam. After another ten minutes of struggle Konnor and I split them apart and took them off in opposite directions.

"What happened?" I asked Brynna.

"He decided it'd be fun to blow my explosive arrows off course with his stupid powers and I nearly blew up Jeremiah!" she explained in a huff.

"I see."

Jeremiah Villa was a camper from the Apollo cabin, and had been giving Brynna extensive archery lessons...since day one. 

"I hate him."

"He's your brother."

"Exactly," she said giving me a look. "He's related to me and he's awful."

"I'm sure there was point in time you were real close."

"Yeah, I was born, he wasn't. Then he showed up seven minutes later."

Oh by the way Brynna and Adam are twins.

I smiled and thought about my siblings, we were closer, now more than ever, but we had our moments.

"All siblings fight." I reminded her.

"Yeah but when you have a twin its different, like the competitiveness is insane! You always have to be one step ahead or they outshine you. It's gotten so bad, that this is the reason we were separated. We can't stand each other!"

"Well what happened?"

"Long story short, Adam was next in line to have dad's legacy, you know cause Romans go by the gender not the order of birth, so Adam would've received all the glory and honor, then there's Brynna in cohort five, the loser. So Adam and I fought for years, and this all started when we were six. So when we were ten mom decided it was best for us to be apart. I was sent here and Adam stayed home. And it's been like that for three years now. Now the son of a hydra is here and ruining my life!"

"Well, how about you two settle it once and for all?" I offered after a few minutes of silence.

"How?" she asked.

"Tonight capture the flag."

Brynna perked up and cracked an evil grin.

"Besides," I said, "Chiron says you two either settle this now, or he'll call Konnor's grandfather to settle it, and I've heard that Mr. D would not be happy to be back to his punishment after a few years off. In other words he'd be worse than Hades himself."

Brynna laughed," Oh don't worry we'll settle it for sure tonight. I've got a plan."

"Well this will be fun." I said.

As long as Brynna and Adam didn't actually kill each other all would be good...I hope.
