    Death Twins Of The Fire Arena, part five.( six? Uh... i forgot)

    Yes Sam. And I will use your character David. --- Percy wore a bright green Golf Shirt with shiny white buttons. "I am so sorry, Soph. I even feel bad for Nico. But what can we do? "He asked miserably. I shook my head desperately. "Nothing. But the real problem is, only one of us can win. And Nico or I. . ." I shivered at the thought. "Only one of you could win." "Or neither of you could win." He added. "Not helping." I muttered. I could her Chirons fading voice, echoing through the wall. "All in the arena for more reapings!" He shouted. I grabbed Percy's arm and walked out with him. Chiron stood on a step slightly taller than the ground. "Now, we have a son of Hades and a daughter of Poseidon. We need a son of Poseidon." He said as he pilled a paper slip from the clear glass bowl. "Percy Jackson." Chiron gasped. My brother stepped up and I grabbed his arm.'NO! THERE MUST BE A MISTAKE! NOT PERCY! PLEASE!" I screamed, letting all my screaming out in a bundle of noise. Everyone stared at me. Percy looked at me grimly." It's okay, Soph. I'll be okay." His voice wavered. Chiron grabbed another bowl. "Athena. A daugter of Athena." He pulled out a slip." Samantha Hamper." She didn't come." Samantha Hamper?" Sam walked up there, shivering from the cold or from fear.---NEXT PART AT NEXT RESULT!--DTOTFA

    This was one of the best books that I have read in years. It was a quick read. It really challenged me personally and professionally. I will use it for corporate training for years to come.
