Percy's POV
"Are you sure you're good?"

"Yes, dad." I say as I roll my eyes.

"We can skip today. You can start tomorrow if you're not felling up to it."

"No, I'm going to have to go to school at some point. You will just say the same thing tomorrow that you did today. I'm fine. Don't be such a worry wart."

"Okay, first of all that is my job as your dad. Second of all, how's your head? Does it still hurt?"

"No, dad, it is fine. I feels a lot better. Can I go into school now?"

"Fine, but you call me if anything happens. And I mean anything got it?"

"Yes, dad."

"No matter if your head hurts or you get nervous or anything. You call, alright."

"Got it."

"Good. Have fun."

"I won't because it is school, but thanks anyway." I say as I get out of the car.

Alright time to talk. Poseidon for some reason changed schools. He still hasn't told me why though. I have a feeling it has something to do with why Poseidon has been freaking out, which is kind of freaking me out. He is up late and researching something. My curiosity is getting the best of me. I really want to know what is going on. I have the right. He is my dad and I am worried about him.

Anyway, back to the school thing. Today is the first day at this new school. I won't miss my old school since I really didn't belong there, so I am not really upset. I am also not nervous because I never really fit in any school before, so why would this be different.

I walk into school and I get my schedule on where my classes are. After I get it, the bell rings and everyone starts rushing to their classes. I, of course, had no clue where I was going. These kids kept pushing me around and soon I ran into somebody and we both fell onto the ground while everyone else walked into their class, not caring about us.

"I am so sorry!" I sputter out. The kid's books fell out of his backpack when I knocked into him. I immediately rushed to help pick his books back up.

"Nah, it's alright. It happens all the time, except this time was an accident." I was pretty sure the last part of that sentence was not meant for my ears since he muttered it, but too late now. I kind of felt back for the kid. I know what it is like to be pushed around. It wasn't like the kid could protect himself a lot because I could see the crushes he used.

When we finished helping he repack, he looked up at me. "Hey, I don't think I have seen you around here before."

"No, I'm new. I just started today." I extended my hand towards him. "I'm Percy."

He grasped my hand and shook it. "Grover. Nice to meet you."

"Now that we met, uh, do you think you could help me with where my class is?" I laughed.

"Yeah, of course. Science, oh, you got that with me. We can go together."

Me and Grover walked to science together and we actually became friends. He was actually pretty cool. He told me that he had some kind of leg disease where he needed his crutches to help him walk and stuff.

We also had the next class together. English. Ughhhhh. I hate English. My dyslexia really didn't help with it.

I mean, class was going fine. My teacher asked me introduce myself to the class, and then the class introduced themselves to me. Finally, I got to sit down. I hate being the center of attention. That was also really embarrassing the way everyone was looking at me. Of course, I sat beside Grover. But all good things must come to an end. She wanted the whole class to be apart of this reading she wanted us to do.
