Chapter 1

Annabeth rested her head on her hand, sighing loudly. She closed her eyes, remembering what happened yesterday and what caused her, her distress.

Annabeth trudged up the stairs to her apartment door after a long day at the library she was working at. She opened her door and burst in, dropping her bags next to the door.

"Dad?" She called. A noise came from her dad's room and Fredrick Chase opened the door.

"Annabeth!" He called and enveloped her in his arms. "How was work?" He asked.

Annabeth shrugged. "It was fine. Not that much people though, so the library had some peace and quiet for once." She looked around the small, but cozy apartment. "Where are the twins? Still at their friends house?"

Fredrick nodded.

Annabeth sighed and plopped down on the couch, turning n the television. The news was on, displaying the front of a school with a stage and a hugh audience.

Annabeth was confused for a moment but then remembered that today was when the Kings' and Queens' of all the kingdoms of the country get together and celebrate Remembrance day.

The country, Greece celebrates Remembrance Day because about a thousand years ago, the country was in poverty, buried knee-deep in dept and wars were raging. Until the ancestor of the royal line, Ouranos put a stop to all of it. Greece made Ouranos the king and his wife the queen, and it has been passed down to the sons and daughter if the Royals ever since.

The camera zoomed into the audience, the news reporter in the midst.

"Today, Greece celebrates Remembrance day, one of the most important holidays of the year. We are gathered here in front of The Royal Academy, a school for royals, nobles and future pages and lady-in-waitings to learn how to serve their country to the fullest-"

Annabeth rolled her eyes at that. Serve their country my ass, she thought. More like act like everybody's below you.

"-and, every year, the Kings and queens pick from a ballot, 5 boys and 5 girls to become a lady-in-waiting or a page for a noble."

"Would you want to be that?" Fredrick asked.

Annabeth looked at him in disdain. "Gods, no! Who would want to be a snobby, stuck-up 'royal'?!"

Annabeth looked away from the television screen, her mind having enough royalty for the day.

Me? A lady-in-waiting? Annabeth scoffed in her head. I'll serve a royal when pigs fly.

Annabeth had a history with the Royals. All her life, all she's been hearing is Royal thisand Royal that.Some of her neighbors or the peple in her class were noble men and women. They looked down at her and her fellow 'peasants', as they called it.

They think they're better than everyone in their class and they always brag about getting invited to the latest ball and mascaraed with the princes and princesses.

Her other classmates would try to get into the rich group. Some succeeded, if they deemed him or her rich enough, and others, well, let's say they were never heard from again.

Annabeth was treated like her and her friends were mere slaves in the presence of the rich kids. They teased her, made fun of her and dragged her down with their constant yells and daily insults.

But Annabeth didn't let that get to her or her friends. She held her head high and proud and, eventually, the noblemen and women left her alone.

But enough about her, let's go back to the topic.

Annabeth stood up and went to her room, closed the door and collapsed on her bed.

As she was falling asleep, her phone suddenly started ringing. Annabeth groaned and groped around on her bedside table for her flip phone. She held the phone to her ear and asked, "Hello?"

"ANNABETH!" Came the reply. Annabeth winced and put her phone away from her ear.

"Silena." Annabeth sighed. "What are you doing?"

"DID YOU SEE THE NEWS?!" She asked.

"Since when did you watch the news?" Annabeth scoffed.

"Ever since they announced the new batch of winners for the Academy!"

Annabeth groaned and rolled on her back. "You called me for that? You know I have absolutely no interest in that."

Silena whined. "But Annabeth-"

"No." Annabeth said with a sense of finality.

"Fine. But at least check who got in at 4:00 pm, 'kay?"

"If it gets you off my case, then fine." She replied.

Silena squealed. "I knew I'd get you through!"

Annabeth rolled her eyes. "Yeah, yeah." She checked the time and saw it was already 2:30 pm. "Hey, I got to go. I have to finish my homework."

"Bye!"

"Bye."

Annabeth put the phone down and groaned. That girl can be a handful!
