Summer climbed the hill, climbing till she reached the Pine tree at the Top, She had left her Friend, Thorn, behind, taking specific instructions to come here. She finally reached the tree, panting, from the long run here, monsters on every corner, she still had a hard time believing that she was a half blood. She scanned the area, turning a full three-sixty to see it all, At the base of the hill lay a tall building, it looked like a regular cabin, maybe a bit larger than any normal one, a strawberry patch to the left, some trees to the right, and a river far in the back, It didn't look like any camp to her, just some cabin. She started to think this was the wrong place, but then started to think this was all a joke. She scanned the area again, looking for any signs of a camp, or even a trick.
'But then again,' She thought, 'If Thorn was lying, the monsters wouldn't have chased me right?' She rubbed her shoulder where a Minotaur had hit her, She looked pretty beat up as it was, scratches, bruises, no blood luckily. She leaned against the tree, tired, hungry, frightened, and hurt. She wanted to curl up and sleep, But her adrinaline was pumping, she could hear blood pounding in her ears, her heart racing from the run, It was impossible to sleep, but she was also growing impatient, looking for what Thorn described as a camp. She ran her fingers over the charms on her golden charm bracelet that dangled off her left wrist, which she had found out was her most powerful weapon, if she just pulled off that one charm, it would turn into her sword, she had to remember not to lose this. Though it hadn't happened yet. She repositioned the small book bag on her back and scanned the area once more.
