Chapter 2

Percy's Pov

"Percy, what about Thalia?" Annabeth asked.

"Sounds like a great idea! Oh, and how about Nico?" I asked.

"Let's go ask them. Wait! Seaweed Brain! We forgot. We need one more person."

Before I could think about who to choose, we heard a loud noise coming from the Ares cabin.

"Clar—" Annabeth started.

"—Isse!" I exclaimed.

"Perfect! Thalia, Nico, and Clarisse," Annabeth said.

Annabeth and I ran over to the Ares cabin and knocked on the door. Clarisse answered the door with a deep scowl on her face.

"What do you want?" She sneered.

"Clarisse, we have a quest. Thalia, Nico, Percy, and I are going to Washington. We also need your help," Annabeth said calmly.

"A quest... I'm soo ready for this!" Clarisse's face had lit up.

She had told us that she would meet us in the morning. Annabeth and I walked over to the Hades cabin. We knocked.

"Hey! What's up guys?" Nico asked, barely peeing out of his cabin.

"We have a quest, but man, we need your help. Clarisse, Thalia, Annabeth and I are going too," I said.

"I'm in. I have been so bored since the war. I'll see you guys in the morning," Nico said as we walked away.

We knocked on Thalia's door last. When she opened the door, she looked at us with a raised eyebrow.

"Quest?" She asked as she saw us.

"How in the world did you know that?" I asked.

"I could see it in your guys' eyes. You're excited, but scared," Thalia said.

"So... are you in?" I asked.

"Totally! I'll see you guys in the morning!" Thalia said.

We walked back towards the Big House when Annabeth said, "Percy? I have to go pack."

"Okay. Talk to you later?" I asked.

"Count on it!" She said smiling.

Then, she turned and jogged off towards the Athena cabin.

"Percy?" Chiron asked, sitting on the deck playing pinochle with Mr. D.

"I'm taking Annabeth, Thalia, Nico, and Clarisse," I said, walking up next to him

"Okay. Strong mixture though. One child of each Big Three," Chiron said, nodding his head in approval.

"Thanks, sir!" I said.

"Percy, you need to get to bed. I will talk to you in the morning," Chiron said.

I went back to my cabin and went inside. I walked over to my bed and fell asleep, feeling both excitement and fear for the next morning.
