Percy's point of view

It has been twelve years since I became a god. You might think that life would be easier as a god, well in some ways you are right, but my life didn't seem to get any less complicated. About a year ago there seemed to be an increase in monster activity, this led to many more demigods praying for help which meant I got a whole lot busier. Some of us suspect that we may have another war on our hands, for starters the increase in monsters, and secondly, there had been no sign of Annabeth or Zach since they had been seen twelve years ago.

Some of us just assumed that they had died but I am worried that if there is another war coming, and if they are still alive have they turned against us. About four years ago a city was built in camp half-blood similar to new Rome called new Athens.

Now, most of my old friends had apartments there, Katie and Travis had gotten married and moved in together, they now have a son. Conner had fallen for a daughter of Apollo whose name was Amy they had a daughter. The brothers still pulled pranks on the other campers, and much to Katie and Amy's dismay they often got their children to help.

Clarisse and Chris also live together now they had a son. Nico doesn't spend that much time in the underworld anymore, the reason for that is because he is now married to Will Solace, they live at camp and Nico still teaches the sword class. Leo and Calypso are married now too they also had a son. Grover and Juniper are married and they have a daughter. Frank and Hazel are also married, and they had twin daughters. they live in New Rome the latest son of Jupiter has taken over the second Praetor Position.

Reyna is still Praetor. My daughter Christina is dating Nathan Jones, a son of Hecate, I warned him not to hurt her, and I think he is taking me seriously. Jason and Piper are still together, that just about sums up what has happened to my friends in the past twelve years. As for what's happened on Olympus, Triton still hasn't accepted me or my mother which means we hardly ever see him unless he has to be at my dad's palace. My mom and dad are still as close as ever, so he hasn't cheated on her. That's a good thing too otherwise he might have more than one son giving him the cold shoulder.

About five years ago I went to "hang out" with Apollo and Hermes I only did it so they would stop telling me to "get back out there" those nights didn't result in anything since I wasn't really in the mood for partying, at least those times shut them up they haven't asked me since calling me a "party pooper" that probably has something to do with the fact that I never really got over Amber. I loved her a lot, I still do. I never wanted to leave her in the first place, but because of the stupid ancient laws, I had no choice.

Ever since he was born I have watched over my son, when he is in school I want to go down and strangle the bullies who pick on him because of his unusual eye color, but of course, I can't do anything. The only ones that know about him besides me are my parents, Chiron and Grover. One thing I am grateful for is that Grover somehow convinced the nature spirits in the trees around Amber's apartment to kill any monsters that they see getting too close.

I will have to go down and thank them myself sometime. Amber Is now working as a history teacher, she hasn't dated anyone else since me, or at least not that I am aware of. It will soon be time for our son to go to camp, knowing my domains a monster will probably find him soon and he will hopefully get to camp safely.

I'm guessing that once he gets there the older campers will probably figure out that I'm his father rather quickly considering his appearance and his name. They will probably figure it out even before I claim him. Not to mention the fact that not many of the gods would name their son after two fallen heroes, and considering the fact that there is no such thing as a coincidence when it comes to the world of gods and demigods. It wouldn't take Athena's brains to figure out he's my son.

It's been hard to sit back and not reveal myself to him, but in the back of my mind, I knew that if he learned who he was too early the monsters would find him sooner, so I tried to convince myself that I was doing the right thing by staying away from him. The downside to that was that I know from experience what It's like to grow up without a father and learn that he is alive, and he just wasn't there. I won't be surprised if he is angry at me at first before he accepts that I didn't have a choice.

My training with Apollo went on for about a year before the rest of the gods decided that I had learned everything I needed to know, Piper finished a few weeks after I did. I helped Christina and Reyna master their powers from me and hopefully, once he got to camp Christina would help Luke with his. I guess I know now what it must have been like for my Dad having to stay away from me until I learned who I really was, and even then he had only been able to see me occasionally.

Come to think of it I get angry at the bullies that tease my son; Dad must have been downright murderous having to see Gabe hurting Mom and me. I honestly don't know how he kept himself from going and killing Gabe. My Dad has helped me through all of this, and I think both he and my mom are looking forward to meeting Luke, considering how Excited Mom was when I told them about him.

Ares and I still hate each other, but that's no surprise, he never really got over my adopting Christina. He has challenged me a few more times in the past few years still trying and failing to prove that he's better than me. I don't think he will ever give up trying, though.

Aphrodite made a few more attempts to get me, but I'm just not interested in her. Besides, I don't need to get caught up in that drama between her Ares and Hephaestus. Her charmspeak doesn't even work on me. Unfortunately, I think the fact that she can't get me just makes her want me more.
