Wow!! Part 9 already. Part ten wiil be at artemis fowl. Its the first book by eion colfer. Rrmember: apply for the quest! It ends tommorrow morning, so get going.

When I woke for the second time, I was on the porch again, on a reclining chair. There was a girl leaning over me. The same girl that I had accidentally knocked out. She had a large red welt over her eye. "Oh my gods! Your awake. You have been out for so long. Im Sienna Delaross." "Sorry for knocking you out. It wad actually an accident." She gingerly touched the knot on her forehead. "Ive got a strong head. What happened back there?" I started to reaccount the prophecy, but she stopped me. "Chiron wants to hear this." She rushed out, her hair streaming behind her like so many ribbons. A few minutes later, she returned on Chirons back. "Now go," she said. I told Chiron the prophecy, and everything else. He, in turn, told me that all they could see was a wall of solid black energy. That generally meant "bad", so a camper had come and gotten him. The girl with red hair, Rachel was the only one that got through.

Next to me, Haidn jolted awake. He was treated, and they let us both go. Chiron told us to come back in an hour. Until then, he told Haidn to introduce me to more campers. Haidn and I walked down to the athena cabin so i could change. I put on a red cami and a leather jacket. Combat boots were a must, and long skinny jeans are in right now. I also wrestled my short black hair for a while, but i gave up and crammed in under my favorite porkpie hat. I put a green piece of ribbon on the brim. We headed to the Hermes cabin first. I met a few people. Among them was a girl named Harley. She was 14, and she had the coolest hair. It was like salt and pepper, but instead of black hair, brown. On our way to the next cabin, we met Seth and his girlfriend. Her name was Crystal, and they were starting a band called the Blessings of Apollo, and looking for more players. Crystal was a daughter of Hades, and had green eyes and blonde hair. They asked me if I wanted to join the band, and I said yes. I play the saxophone, and they said that would be cool. We both went our seperate ways. Haidn and I went to a lot of different cabins. We saw Ian again, and met Siennas boyfriend logan. A girl in the Hecate cabin cast a spell on m hair so it would change different colors at will, and i changed it to turquoise. "Its been a busy 24 hours for you," haidn said after admiring my hair. "No kidding," i replied, concentrating on making half of my hair green. "I have passed out two times in one day. Who knew?" "I have to go," Haidn said."Go back to the Athena cabin and train." "Okay," i said, and headed to my cabin.

Hi guys! Sorry, that one was kind of boring. The next one will be at artemis fowl. Visit alexa res 1 through 6 and check it out. Thanks! Bye.

    Bring out the next one!!!!!!!

    This is my favorite series but its been 2 years and the author needs to put out the 3rd one. I understand it is hard writing a book but considering rick riordan has put at least one if not two 500 page books a year i think he should have one 300 page book in 3 years.
