16 years ago, somewhere in Boston US, at her late 20's, Josephine Anderson got a new job at a fast food chain as a waitress. She suddenly noticed that there was a man visiting back-and-forth in the fast food chain whom she fell inlove with. Not because he was good looking and all, but because of his mysterious aura. Josephine was into those types; silent but deadly. One day, she and the man got into a conversation. She found out that they had a lot in common and that the man was also into her. The man introduced himself as Jake. They met, they talked, they started going out and finally they made love.
The god spent weeks with Josephine but she still doesn't know who he really was. One day, Josephine was about to say she was pregnant but ended up telling Jake in a wrong time. Jake said he urgently need to go back to his hometown and left her with a pen. Josephine was confused where will she use this but Jake said it's for her safety. After that, Jake left her without even looking back. Josephine examined the pen and tried to uncap it. She was surprised when she saw that the pen turned into a spear with a Greek symbol on it. 9 months later, Josephine gave birth to a handsome child. She named it Jake in memory of his god parent whom she really missed.
As years passed, Jake started becoming stubborn. He started showing symptoms of having ADHD and so he was diagnosed when he was 7 years old. He was also diagnosed of dyslexia when he was 10 years old. He started stealing things in school which is the reason why her mother moved him school by school to avoid problems. He also starts a fight with anyone in every school bragging that he is stronger. He does not participate in class but instead he's drawing monsters on his notebook. His mother once asked him why he kept drawing monsters on his notebooks, he said that those monsters are following him everyday. His mom also questioned the half goat half man Jake drew, Jake told her that that thing appeared in his dreams often.
On Jake's 11th birthday, the first monster attacked occurred on his way home from school. When he got off the school bus, someone started chasing him. He didn't know at first that it was a monster because at first look, it was his English professor. Running away from his English professor took them to the woods. There, his professor changed into a hellhound. (He knew it was a hellhound because they had this trivia game about Greek Mythology.) He didn't know what to do then suddenly he remembered the pen his mom gave to him last night for his birthday present. He tried to uncap it to see if it changes into something (like what he had seen in some movies). Jake was amazed for what his mom gave him. Stubborn as he is, he charged directly at the hellhound. The monster roared in fear and counterattacked Jake. Jake backed away from the monster and started running away from it. Jake then realized that he had angered the hellhound more. While running, someone shouted Jake's name, he then faced his left where he heard it.
He was shocked to see the alien goat (that's what he calls it) who appears in his dreams right before him. The alien goat corrected Jake that he is a satyr, not an alien goat. He then stopped running so did I. He started playing something on his reed pipe which I didn't recognized. As he played, vines started sprouting on the hellhound's feet and started strangling him. The satyr noticed me holding the spear, he then told me to stab the hellhound on its neck while it's still not able to move. I charged at the monster and jumped then stabbed its neck using the spear. Then the hellhound disintegrated. The satyr told me that I was good and that he would bring me to Camp Half-Blood. I ask what that means, he said it is the only safe place for demigods like me.
I said to him that I don't believe in gods and I suspect him to be like one of those kidnappers or serial killers. The satyr laughed at me and explained why he's here. He said that once he'd found a half-blood, he would escort him or her to Camp Half-Blood. He explained things to me starting from the Titans to the demigods which I am one of. He warned me that starting now that I'm aware of me being a demigod, more and more monsters would hunt me unless I'll go to camp. I replied that I don't want to leave my mom not knowing where I was so I said to him that I'll come back to this very place when I'm 15. He said that he'll be in any place near me so that he'll be able to warn or protect me when he smell monsters.
Honestly, I enjoyed my 3 years at school with the satyr disguised as a student to protect me from every monster. But, he said he'll be back at camp first to announce that he had found a demigod but sadly, he never came back. The satyr taught me skills on using the spear and trained me personally before he left. And, thank the gods my karate skills are still reliable for bringing down those ugly monsters. And, I've also talked to my mom about those demigod things. My mom told me I was ridiculous but I insisted on believing it. And somewhere inside me is eager to go to that place, Camp Half-Blood.
My birthday passed last week and now I'm 15. I promised myself before that when I turn at this age, I would now go to camp. Every night, I always dreamt of that satyr telling me to come now to the camp and that the other campers were excited for a new company. And now that I am here, *sighs* once again, chased by a hellhound. I spent my summer days practicing karate and also in fighting using a spear personally. I already knew some karate moves but I lost interest on it since 5th grade but now that maybe I need to learn karate, I pursued in learning it. Of course, the stories the satyr told me made me excited and want to kill more monsters. Well of course I've been chased by monsters between those years. I was able to beat them. And now that I am facing a monster again, I need to kill it or it would kill me.
I faced the monster and told him to sit. Silly me, of course he won't obey. I charged at its neck remembering what the satyr told me 3 years ago on how to beat the hellhound. But, its fangs blocked the way. I backed away thinking of a more reliable plan. I concentrated myself, suddenly I felt something in my gut. I felt power flowing around my body then I charged again at the hellhound. Stabbing him in its neck again and again until it disintegrated. I heard someone clapping behind the bushes, I was surprised to see the satyr again after 3 years. He said that I've changed from the last 3 years. Faster, skillful and stronger. I asked why he said that I was stronger than before, because I beat the monster without his help, he said. He once again asked me if I am now ready to enter camp, I said yes. Once I stepped inside the camp, a hologram glowed above my head. Different reactions heard from the campers. Once, I saw what was above my head. That was Hermes' symbol above me. And that only means one thing, he officially claimed me as his son.
