My eyes were closed and I almost fell asleep. The vibrations of the bus rocked me and I felt my eyelids getting heavier and heavier. I was surprisingly calm for the first day of school but thankful that I was. The new kids sat at the front of the bus and looked like they had pissed themselves. I can understand why though. They haven't been claimed yet unlike the rest of us. Wondering whom their parents could be must be nerve racking. Then again they could also be excited to finally meet the missing parent in their lives. I know I was panicked on my first day of DGH. I close my eyes and let myself fall asleep. It's going to be a bit of a long ride anyways.
Two hours later we finally arrive. I pull out my backpack and my suitcase from the bus and I can already see that the older kids have settled in quite quickly. The Ares dorm was already practicing their fighting in the arena. The Apollo kids and the Aphrodite kids were gossiping about each other's summers and doing their hair or whatever it is they do. Me, well I was just happy to be back where I belong. I loved school more then I did home. Mom doesn't really care about me anymore and spends her nights out. The only reason she still keeps me around is that I still have a connection to my father. Or that's what she thinks, the gods are hard to contact. Chiron was already here to greet the new comers and escort them to the gym where the gods would be contacted to claim their sons and daughters. The centaur looked at me with a fond smile and waved. I waved back and headed to my dorm.
I stared at the eleven dorms in DGH (that's Demi-God High). Each dorm represents a god and you have to go to the dorm representing your parent. Aphrodite's is a large dark pink building. I"ve never been inside but I can bet every room has a mirror. Apollo's building is the color of the sun with musical notes painted all over it. Artemis' build is painted dark blue with a silver deer on it. It's empty because Artemis is a self-proclaimed virgin and has no children. Athena's building is copper with a silver Owl. Demeter's building is a deep green with vines growing up the side of it. The Hephaestus dorm is the color of all sorts of metals while the Ares dorm is a blood red with a boar's severed head painted on it. The Hermes dorm is the most populated dorm seeing as the children who don't get claimed are put there until they get claimed, whenever that is. It's a sketchy brown looking color. There are only four other dorms after that. But these ones are more special then the others. Hera's dorm is empty because she's the goddess of marriage and stays only with one man. The last three should also be empty because they belong to the BIG three. Zeus, Poseidon and Hades. Sons and daughters of the Big Three are more powerful then regular demi-gods. They made a pact years ago to never have children but of course two of them did. Since Hades is always in the Underworld with Persephone, he's least likely to ever have children again. But Zeus and Poseidon could never resist. Weirdly enough, Poseidon seems to have had more children then Zeus. Zeus has only had one child since the pact.
My friend Craig and I share the dorm together (it's painted a sea-green and covered with sea shells). So he's actually my half brother. Coincidentally, Zeus' only child is my best friend, Lorelei. I figured I'd make friends with her since Craig, Lorelei and I aren't actually supposed to be alive but I guess old habits die hard. Old habits must include sleeping with mortal women.
After unpacking my things and taking sometime to take another nap, I left the dorm and decided to go look around school. Nothing had changed over the summer. And since it's the first day of school there aren't any classes. I sat down on the steps of the school and stared at the lake.
"Hopefully this year will be different."
