Megan and the Gods' Born ~ Part 6
We landed outside the borders of camp with a bump, only a small one though. Just a couple feet to the ground.
Courtney was on her feet in a manner of seconds and screaming to let her excitement, and frustration, out. She shot her last two arrows into the air; they burst into two small fireworks that we could barely see in the afternoon sun. “I can’t believe we did that! We fought monsters! We went to Olympus! My hair looked fabulous!”
I wanted to tackle Octavian for a minute before realizing that Courtney was staring at us. I stood up and brushed myself off. Her face could hardly contain her smile, but I could see her envy behind her eyes.
“Not one word.”
We headed inside. Reyna answered this time when we knocked on the praetors’ office.
“You have returned. Good job. It’s getting late today; you may continue your regularly scheduled assignments tomorrow.”
She directed us towards the door, but I s

The states rolled by. The man, who I learned was Thud Adams, a son of Vulcan from Cohort 4, took us as far as the New York border, saying, “He wasn’t allowed into the state,” because of something that happened back in the 1990’s.
We took turns talking with him and resting at his little table. He had a few great stories about his days in the Legion. At one point, he taught Octavian the basics of driving: steering, gas, and brake. Octavian tried it for a few miles before saying that he could always learn after his years in the Legion.
It was dark when we left Thud’s van in front of a Motel 6. He gave us a bit of money for a “good, cheap nights rest” and a quiver full of special arrows to Courtney before he rode off to his next adventure. By that time, my wounds from the fight with the aurai were almost healed. We grabbed some food at the minimart across the street and took it back to our room, we could only af

I had taken the last watch on the last bus, so I got to take the first nap. Within seconds of leaning my head against Octavian’s side, I was dreaming. That’s another thing about being a demi-god, you get some pretty messed up dreams.
I was flying to a city in the clouds, most likely Mount Olympus. Even though I had made sure Octavian didn’t slaughter the Greeks in the second Giant war, only the bravest heroes, like Percy Jackson and Jason Grace that had a much larger part, got to attend the big bash up there. All the other demi-gods got to have a party at Camp Half-Blood. Even the Romans were invited! That’s how I met most of my sisters in the Hermes cabin and all their friends. I had met a couple Greeks before, but this was when I got to meet all their friends. I hope to see them again; they are all great kids.
I’m getting off track.
I landed on Mount Olympus and headed into the throne hall. I could hear arguing inside
Megan and the Gods' Born ~ Part 3
Finding Courtney was very easy. She had gotten in trouble earlier and was sent to dig in the tunnels. I hate going underground, but nothing I couldn’t handle for a few minutes. Peitho, on the other hand, would not enter the tunnel, so I had to call down to find Courtney.
She ran up to the entrance and gave me a great big hug. That’s what I love about Courtney, she’s always right there where you need her. And even after she’s been in the dirt and grime, she still looks fabulous.
“Megan! I’m so glad you’re better! Who’s your friend?”
I introduced her to Peitho and explained how she could only speak Greek. And how I could speak Greek. That’s another thing I like about Courtney, she accepts you no problem, but the fact I can speak it will be all over camp by tonight. Great at accepting people and then wants to gossip about how much she likes you (or doesn’t, depending on the person). It

Octavian helped me back to the sick bay and we sat down on the bed I woke up in. “We have a bit of a situation. She’s divine, that’s for sure.”
“The girl the monsters wanted. She ran into New Rome minutes before the monsters showed up. I knew the gods were going to send a visitor, but this girl.” He sighed. “I was entering the meeting as you left. No one died in the attack; it was all about her.”
“Oh, that’s good. I was afraid.”
He nodded. “I know; it’s always tough when those things happen. Like that stunt you played with Gwen just before the Feast of Fortuna this year.”
I wanted to bury myself in a hole. How could I forget about that? I had speared her on accident with his pilum. We never told anyone what happened, not even Gwen has said anything. “Can’t we forget about that yet? Anyway, let’s get back to this girl. What makes h

I woke up in the hospital. I don’t remember most of what had happened in the last senate meeting. I could feel the stitches in my forehead. My legs felt a little beat up, but I should be able to walk.
I looked around the hospital bay. Only one other bed was occupied. “Oh Gods, Dakota.” We may not have been friends, but I could still feel sympathy for him. He was covered in head to toe bandages. I remembered the monsters attacking and seeing him thrown into one of Terminus‘s statues. I was running to fight them with nothing but a ceremonial knife I could barely use and my flying shoes. I threw off my covers and found my feet covered only in socks. “Shoes! Where could you have gotten to now?”
I looked around the room again and saw them near the door. I hobbled over to them and laced them up. “Ahh, that feels much better.” The wings on my shoes fluttered a bit, but were very happy to be back on my feet ag
