Long time no see😏
But seriously,
I am so sorry I haven't been updating.
Words cannot explain.

Basically the best day of school. Ever.

No monsters, no crazed teachers, and of course, my angel Annabeth.

Having all the other demigods come was genius.

No doubt that Annabeth had suggested it.

But, I knew a question hung in the air. A big question. No one wanted to ask it and the air became seemingly more uncomfortable by the second.

Mars, Pluto, Jupiter, Poseidon, Athena, Aphrodite, and Hephaestus

I gaped.

This was amazing.
