AN: I'm back! And to Princess of Flames, I am allowed to have chapters any size that I feel like. Thanks, but please don't tell me that my chapters are too short. I'm sorry, I write when I can. I am busy around 10 hours a week. I don't have time for 3K chapters. :) But, I will try to make my chapters longer.

Anyway, onto the chapter!

Chapter Seven

Sasha POV

It was dark, and I didn't know where I was. I used to live in the city, until we (my mother and I) got attacked. She told me about my heritage, and then she disappeared so I could get away. I knew she was still alive, because she had to go to the hospital, the long-term ward. I had to find a place to live soon, otherwise I'd be screwed. Luckily, I had seen some lights just up ahead, and all I had to do was get out of the forest.

As I made my way out of the forest, I saw a small van parked outside a set of apartments. The logo on it said, 'Half-blood Rentals'. I decided that the worst thing that could happen wasn't that bad, so I ran out of the forest and into the town.

I opened the door the lobby of the apartments. I was greeted by the stares of about twelves demigods. The reason I could tell they were demigods was because this one guy with terribly messy hair whipped out a sword, and you don't see that every day!

"Who are you?!" the black-haired one asked angrily. 'Why are you here?"

"Well, to start off, my mom's gone, (she is stuck in hospital) and I need a place to stay. Also, I know I am a demigod. I am a daughter of Hephaestus –"I said.

"Cool! I am a son of him!" another guy, a Latino by the looks of it, said to me. "My name's Leo, want to high five?"

I put my hand up in response, and we high-fived.

"So, do you want to live with us? We can't trust you completely yet. Do you want to tell us what you can do?" The black-haired one talked again.

"Percy, we need to introduce ourselves! I'm Annabeth, daughter of Athena, nice to meet you!" Annabeth, a blonde-haired, grey-eyed girl introduced herself. "Well? What are you waiting for?"

The rest of the people hurriedly introduced themselves. It looks like the blonde is in charge.

"Percy, son of Poseidon"

"Piper, daughter of Aphrodite"

"Leo, son of Hephaestus"

"Charity, daughter of Aphrodite"

"Dylan, son of Hermes"

'Amara, daughter of Aphrodite"

"Katie, daughter of Demeter"

"Travis, son of Hermes"

"Clarisse, daughter of Ares'

"Chris, son of Hermes"

"Nico, son of Hades"

"I'm Sasha, nice to meet you! I repeated. "So, well what do you want me to do? I can craft things okay, but I am good at lifting things and know directing well. I am happy to do anything."

Everyone seemed surprised that I wanted to do something to help out.

"Well, why don't we take you up to a miniature apartment, and you can get a rest. Is that okay?" Jason said.

I was actually starting to get tired, so I happily replied yes.

We climbed the stair until we got to the second floor. Jason grabbed a key out of the backpack he was wearing, unlocked the door, and then gave me the key.

The apartment was quite small. It had a bedroom, and small bathroom, and a living/dining room. Even though it was small, I really liked it. Each room was furnished nicely with simple wooden furniture.

"If you want to make some changes, just ask us and we'll help to spruce it up a bit. Good night!" Jason said as he left.

"Okay!" I replied

It was time for me to go to bed. First though, I slipped into the bathroom and had a quick shower. There were towels and a toothbrush with toothpaste sitting on top of the sink. I dried off, and then changed into the clothes that were on the bed. I guess they made this like a spare house. I was jumped into bed, and then fell asleep, dreaming of the next day ahead.

Piper POV

After Jason had taken Sasha back, all of us started talking about her and why she came.

"Do you think she will be okay?" Katie asked. Aw, she is so sweet.

"I'm sure she will be, but what do we do about her? Does she stay? I think she should, because she seems eager to help out and frankly, we need a bit of help." Leo put his opinion in.

I agreed with him, and it looked like everyone else did as well.

"It can't hurt, can it? Well, it's getting late. I'm gonna go to bed." Travis said.

I looked at the clock, and saw that it was late. We had lived here for about a week, and it was time to write to Chiron and tell him about the week so far. Every week, Chiron was going to send two more campers to come and join us, until slowly the camp filled up. There were restrictions though. You had to be of age, or be strong enough to handle living away from the protection of camp. Athena has asked Hecate to put a spell around Belmont Bay to repel monsters from coming near. The odd one or two would turn up, but we were pretty safe from too much harm.

Slowly, everyone said goodnight, then headed up to their rooms. Soon it was just Annabeth and I. We were in charge of writing the note, so we got started.

"Dear Chiron and the camp,

We are having a great time here. We have occupied the Godly Apartment Complex, and we are looking at building an arena in the camp. We have also met a new demigod, her name is Sasha and she is a daughter of Hephaestus. That's all.

- From the demigods at Belmont Bay."

"I guess it is time to go to bed then?" I asked Annabeth. She agreed, and we both headed our separate ways to our beds, were we slept, for one of the first times, without nightmares.

AN: Ohmigod, Ohmigod you guys! This is like the longest chapter I have ever written! It's exactly 1.2K words, and I can't believe I wrote this much! It took me about an hour, but I'm glad I sat down and really concentrated.

Okay well, review please if you want, but probably not too many more OCs.

WAIT!

I forgot one thing. If you are going to do an OC, please just tell me the important stuff. I don't really care if they are the first girl to eat bread; I just want to build them out as a character. And you are welcome to write long detailed descriptions, or short ones. If they are short descriptions I can help create them, and if they are long I know exactly what they are going to be. Thanks for everything, and toodles until next time!
