Page 1 1. I ACCIDENTALLY VAPORIZE my PRE-ALGEBRA TEACHER Look, i didn\"t want to be a half-blood. If you\"re reading this due to the fact that you think you can be one, mine advice is: close this book right now. Think whatever lie your mother or dad told you around your birth, and shot to command a typical life. gift a half-blood is dangerous. It\"s scary. Most of the time, it gets you killed in painful, nasty ways. If you\"re a normal kid, reading this since you think it\"s fiction, great. Review on. I envy you for being able to think that none of this ever happened. however if you identify yourself in this pages—if you feel something stirring inside—stop reading immediately. You can be among us. And once you understand that, it\"s just a matter of time before they feeling it too, and also they\"ll come for you. Don\"t say i didn\"t warn you. My name is Percy Jackson. I\"m twelve year old. Until a couple of months ago, i was a boarding student at YancyAcademy, a exclusive school because that troubled kids in upstate new York. Am ns a troubled kid? Yeah. You could say that. I can start in ~ any suggest in my quick miserable life to prove it, but things really started going bad last May, as soon as our sixth-grade class took a ar trip come Manhattan— twenty-eight mental-case kids and also two teachers on a yellow institution bus, heading come the city Museum of art to watch at ancient Greek and also Roman stuff. ns know—it sounds choose torture. Most Yancy field trips were. yet Mr. Brunner, our Latin teacher, was leading this trip, for this reason I had hopes. Mr. Brunner to be this middle-aged male in a engine- wheelchair. He had actually thinning hair and also a scruffy beard and a frayed tweed jacket, which constantly smelled choose coffee. Girlfriend wouldn\"t think he\"d be cool, yet he called stories and jokes and also let united state play gamings in class. He likewise had this awesome arsenal of roman inn armor and weapons, for this reason he to be the just teacher whose class didn\"t put me to sleep. i hoped the pilgrimage would be okay. In ~ least, i hoped the for as soon as I wouldn\"t acquire in trouble. Boy, was ns wrong. See, negative things happen to me on ar trips. Like at mine fifth-grade school, when we visited the Saratoga battlefield, I had actually this accident with a Revolutionary war cannon. I wasn\"t aiming because that the college bus, but of course I got expelled anyway. And before that, at my fourth-grade school, when we took a behind-the-scenes tourism of the Marine human being shark pool, I kind of fight the wrong lever on the catwalk and our class took an unplanned swim. And also the time prior to that. . . Well, you obtain the idea. This trip, i was identified to be good. every the means into the city, I put up v Nancy Bobofit, the freckly, redheaded kleptomaniac girl, hitting my best friend Grover in the ago of the head v chunks of peanut butter-and-ketchup sandwich. Grover was straightforward target. He was scrawny. The cried once he gained frustrated. He must\"ve been held ago several grades, due to the fact that he to be the only sixth grader with acne and the begin of a wispy mustache on his chin. On optimal of every that, he was crippled. He had a note excusing that from PE for the remainder of his life since he had actually some kind of muscular condition in his legs. That walked funny, prefer every step hurt him, however don\"t let the fool you. Girlfriend should\"ve watched him run when it was enchilada work in the cafeteria. Anyway, Nancy Bobofit to be throwing wads of sandwich that stuck in his curly brown hair, and also she knew ns couldn\"t perform anything ago to her since I was currently on probation. The headmaster had actually threatened me with death by in-school suspension if anything bad, embarrassing, or even mildly entertaining happened on this trip. \"I\"m walk to kill her,\" ns mumbled. Grover do the efforts to patience me down. \"It\"s okay. I like peanut butter. \" that dodged one more piece that Nancy\"s lunch. \"That\"s it. \" I started to gain up, yet Grover pulled me earlier to mine seat. \"You\"re currently on probation,\" he reminded me. \"You know who\"ll obtain blamed if something happens. \" Looking back on it, i wish I\"d decked Nancy Bobofit best then and also there. In-school suspension would\"ve to be nothing compared to the mess ns was about to acquire myself into. Mr. Brunner led the museum tour. he rode increase front in his wheelchair, guiding us with the big echoey galleries, previous marble statues and also glass situations full of really old black-and-orange pottery. It go out my mind that this stuff had survived for two thousand, 3 thousand years. the gathered us roughly a thirteen-foot-tall rock column v a large sphinx on the top, and started telling us just how it to be a dig marker, a stele, because that a girl around our age. He told us around the carvings on the sides. Ns was make the efforts to hear to what he had actually to say, since it was sort of interesting, however everybody approximately me was talking, and every time i told them come shut up, the various other teacher chaperone, Mrs. Dodds, would give me the evil eye. Mrs. Dodds was this small math teacher native Georgia who constantly wore a black leather jacket, even though she was fifty years old. She looked mean enough to ride a Harley right into your locker. She had come to Yancy halfway v the year, once our last math teacher had a nervous breakdown. indigenous her an initial day, Mrs. Dodds loved Nancy Bobofit and figured ns was evil one spawn. She would allude her crooked finger at me and say, \"Now, honey,\" actual sweet, and I knew ns was walking to gain after-school detention for a month. One time, after she\"d do me erase answers the end of old math workbooks until midnight, ns told Grover i didn\"t think Mrs. Dodds to be human. The looked in ~ me, genuine serious, and also said, \"You\"re certain right. \" Mr. Brunner retained talking around Greek funeral art. Finally, Nancy Bobofit snickered something about the naked male on the stele, and I turned around and also said, \"Will friend shut up?\" It come out louder 보다 I expected it to. The whole group laughed. Mr. Brunner quit his story. \"Mr. Jackson,\" that said, \"did you have actually a comment?\" My challenge was completely red. Ns said, \"No, sir. \" Mr. Brunner sharp to among the images on the stele. \"Perhaps you\"ll tell united state what this picture represents?\" i looked at the carving, and also felt a do the washing up of relief, due to the fact that I actually known it. \"That\"s Kronos eat his kids, right?\" \"Yes,\" Mr. Brunner said, obviously not satisfied. \"And he did this since . . . \" \"Well. . . \" ns racked my brain to remember. \"Kronos to be the king god, and—\" \"God?\" Mr. Brunner asked. \"Titan,\" i corrected myself. \"And . . . The didn\"t trust his kids, that were the gods. So, um, Kronos ate them, right? yet his mam hid infant Zeus, and gave Kronos a absent to eat instead. And also later, when Zeus prospered up, he cheat his dad, Kronos, right into barfing increase his brothers and also sisters—\" \"Eeew!\" said among the girl behind me. \"—and therefore there was this large fight between the gods and the Titans,\" ns continued, \"and the gods won. \" part snickers from the group. Behind me, Nancy Bobofit mumbled to a friend, \"Like we\"re going to use this in genuine life. Favor it\"s going to say top top our task applications, \"Please explain why Kronos ate his kids. \"\" \"And why, Mr. Jackson,\" Brunner said, \"to paraphrase miss out on Bobofit\"s great question, go this matter in actual life?\" \"Busted,\" Grover muttered. \"Shut up,\" Nancy hissed, her challenge even brighter red than her hair. At least Nancy gained packed, too. Mr. Brunner was the only one who ever caught her saying anything wrong. He had radar ears. i thought about his question, and shrugged. \"I don\"t know, sir. \" \"I see. \" Mr. Brunner looked disappointed. \"Well, fifty percent credit, Mr. Jackson. Zeus did certainly feed Kronos a mixture the mustard and also wine, i m sorry made the disgorge his other five children, who, that course, gift
