Just then, the camp manager, a tall, black haired man with a thin moustache came up to Pepper. "Since you don't know English very well," he began slowly, "One of the campers will help you learn it." He pointed to me, who was standing beside him, "This, is Lunevette, she'll help you with English."
I smiled at the girl, Lunevette. "Thank you."
(GAH! Damn, one sec...computer deleted it all)
I smiled, and said in latin"Where are you from?"
"Would you like me to show you around?" I asked in German, thanks to Athena, I could for the following week.
"A German speaking town, a way away." I replied, then turned to the Lunevette. "Ja bitte."
(German Translator: Yes, please)
(Thanks Bunnies, I was wanting too!)
(then I be left out!)
Apollo is the son of Jupiter and Leto, and the twin brother of Diana . He is the god of music, playing a golden lyre. The Archer, far shooting with a silver bow. The god of healing who taught man medicine. The god of light. The god of truth, who can not speak a lie. One of Apollo's more important daily tasks is to harness his chariot with four horses an drive the Sun across the sky. He is famous for his oracle at Delphi. People traveled to it from all over the Greek world to divine the future. His tree was the laurel. The crow his bird. The dolphin his animal.

I sighed as she was taken away by Lunevette.
"Why do my brothers and sister alway end up with the greeks?"I said in latin, eyes flaring.
Just then The son of Jupiter, Jason, came behind me, and said "boo"
I yipped with delight and hugged him.
"How are you?"I said in Latin so we could talk in private.
"Great! I saw my sister, Thalia"He smiled, hugging me.
I walked into the camp with a centaur grabbing my arm. It stretched out acres. 'We're here!" he announced. I sighed. I had a bad day- claimed as the daughter of Aphrodite, tooken away from my family.
"Hello?? Anyone there?"
(Uhhhhh, I guess Vesta)
I followed Lunevette, happy to be able to speak in my original tounge.
