I woke up to my alarm blaring, like every morning. I didn’t get much sleep last night, I was still getting used to sleeping like this. I groaned not wanting to get up. I knew I had to head to the Big House but all I wanted to do was maybe get some breakfast then sleep until the next day. I slammed my alarm clock, but it continued to blare. I kept slamming it, balling my hand into a fist until it died off. I sat up and looked at the alarm clock. Great, the 8th alarm clock I’ve broken this week. I sighed rubbing my eyes. I stood up and grabbed the dirty orange t-shirt I haven’t bothered to wash. I put on some sweatpants and sneakers. I opened the door to gallons of rain. I sighed, this day couldn’t get any worse. Despite the pouring rain I took my time towards the Big House while everyone else ducked for cover and rushed.
I pushed open the big doors into the packed Big House. My hair was drenched but I didn’t care. I wasn’t fond of all of these new comers. Why is it Half-Blood hills business to even bring them in? I lived on the run for months, they can do it too! Well, the least I can do is talk to someone.
I spotted someone who was experiencing the walk of the shame. I mean, it was pretty obvious. I walked over to them to cause chaos because… well, why not?! It’s 7AM, perfect time to watch a mental breakdown. I sat across from them despite the assigned tables. I noticed the beer can in his hand. “Are you gonna drink that?” I asked.

She had a very firm handshake. I could’ve sworn she cracked my knuckles. My hand dropped back to my side. I shuffled them into my coat pockets. “Colton is fine. Or Elliot. Or Colton-Elliot any will do!” I noticed I was talking rather fast and… well, a lot I was talking a lot. I cleared my throat once again. I wasn’t good at this conversation business.
I thought for a second. I didn’t want to bombard her with questions, but there was a lot to ask. “So… what type of demigod are you?” I took off my glasses and wiped them with my shirt. I balanced them back on my nose and pushed them up further. I kept looking around while she spoke to see if anybody was coming out soon enough. Like one of those… horse people? They seemed like higher authority. I realized how rude I was being so I resisted the urge to look behind me, and focused on her response.

I woke up to my alarm. My eyes shot open. I turned off my alarm quickly and hopped out of bed. I grabbed my glasses from my nightstand and adjusted them onto my face. I was rather excited today, don’t know where the burst of energy originated from however. I hurried up and got dressed, a gray sweater and a watch will do just find. I grabbed my favorite horse shoes because today felt like it’d be a good day.
I opened my cabin door to rain. My mood instantly changed. I sighed and turned around. I grabbed an umbrella and different horse shoes to wear. I left the cabin and opened my umbrella. As I walked towards the big house I smiled and greeted everyone I passed, hoping to brighten their days as mine was ruined. I opened the Big House doors and held it open for other campers. I walked inside and the pain of being one of the tallest people hit. I looked around to find someone I knew. I spotted Finn and walked over to him. “Morning Finn!” I said waving as I trotted over to him.

I woke up early for my morning run. I hopped out of bed and got dressed putting on joggers, tennis shoes, and a camp-half blood t-shirt. I opened the door to a dewy and muddy morning, terrible running weather. I sighed and closed the door. It was 6:30 so I had to wait 30 minutes for everyone else to get a move on towards the Big House. I hate being early, so I sat in my bed and read a book until 7AM struck.
Once it hit 7AM I stood up and opened the door. The rain was coming down hard so I grabbed an umbrella. I walked out of Athena cabin and opened my umbrella. It was humid with low winds. I was unaware as to what the announcement was going to be, but I was hoping it had to do with the Roman, Norse, and Egyptian demigods. They are a complete pain to have around.
I opened the big house doors. Nobody was sitting which urked me. I browsed around waiting for the cabin leaders to address what was going on. I didn’t want to be a loser so I looked around for someone who was just as lonely as I was.
I saw a boy who looked lost so I walked over to him. “Are you new here?” I asked. “I’m Audrey.” I held out my hand formally for him to shake.

I woke up to the sound of not one, but two alarms blaring. I turned off my alarm and continued sleeping, my head buried in my pillow
“Get up, we have to head to the Big House”
I heard my brother said. “In a minute.” I said turning away from him. I was having the best dream until my alarm clock ruined it. I tried to spark the dream again like a lighter, but it wouldn’t continue.
“Come on, get up!”
My brother yelled again. I sighed until I heard his usual clapping rhythm. He’s been doing this for 16 years every time I refuse to wake up. I eyed him with anger. He left the cabin and I was left alone. I threw on jeans and an awful camp-half blood t shirt- seriously, who designed
these?! - I put a white hoodie over it and left the cabin. I rushed towards the Big House to get out of the rain.
I entered the Big House which was packed! Seriously, if there isn’t alchohol and terrible club music I don’t know why anybody bothered to even wake up. I sighed and looked around for someone I could talk to. I spotted a girl with blonde and brown hair. I walked over to her. “Hi, I’m Molly!” I said with a warm smile.
