I stood shocked for a few moments. I couldn't believe it. I was claimed.
"Wait what?" I stammered.
"You are the daughter of Artemis," he said with proud look on his face, like the look my father never gave me.
Wait. Why did he say "the" like I was the only one. I looked around at the rest of the crowd. they all had looks of shock on their faces. Luke and the rest of the Hermes cabin had come to the range. Luke had the same expression as the rest of the crowd. They all look ed at me like I was some forbidden child.
Chiron walked forward. The hologram had faded by now.
"Come one. We need to get you into your cabin," he said. He lead me out of the range. It seemed like he was almost sheltering me, like what body guards do.
"Why were they looked at me so queerly?" I said.
"Well, Artemis made an oath to her father when she was young. She said that she would forever be a virgin goddess. We haven't had any children of Artemis here for a few millenia," Chiron said in a very serious tone.
I finally knew what my dream meant. Wow this is kind of scary. My father was a hunter. He always blamed me for my mothers death, yet she never died. She's an all powerful being.
"Where is she then?" I asked. I desperately wanted to meet her. She was my mother I had always dreamed of having. She was alive. I was still getting over the fact that my father had never told me.
"She has a group of girls called the Hunter's of Artemis. They travel the world killing monsters of the world. The girls are granted immortality, if they promise never to have any interaction with boys. That is probably why you hate boys so much," he explained.
Everything was making sense now. I hated boys. My mother hated boys. Except for my dad apparently. I loved archery and hunting. So did my mother. In fact she was the goddess of the hunt. While my brain was figuring things out, Chiron had lead me back to the Hermes cabin.
"Go in and get your stuff. You'll be going to Cabin 8,"
I went inside. i stepped over peoples sleeping bags to get to mine. I wadded up my t-shirts and shoved them to the bottom of my sleeping bag. I gathered my my sleeping bag in my arms and ran towards the door.
Chiron lead me across the clearing towards the glowing silver cabin. I was excited that I was getting to stay in the cool cabin. I was thinking this until I remember what Chiron said. `We haven't had any children of Artemis in a few millenia`. Great. I was going to be alone. Well, at least I wasn't with any boys.
The front of the cabin looked just like a regular little house that you could find anywhere in Seal Harbor. Well, except for the fact that it was silver.
I walked in the door. It had 4 bunks on either side of the room. There it smelled like the lab in my school house. It looked like some people stayed here sometimes but it hasn't been a few years since they'd been here because there were cobwebs all over the bunks.
"Um? Chiron could I possibly have something to wipe this off these webs," I asked. I don't have any problem with spiders, it's just I don't like them crawling in my hair.
He took a duster out of his pouch that he had on his back. I took it. I turned and picked a bunk. I started sweeping, but when I turned around, Chiron was no longer there. I set up my sleeping bag and laid down. I starred at the ceiling. this was my cabin. No one else's. Just mine.
