“Why don't you come home this year, Molly? Just try it.” My brother, Percy asked. We were sitting on the bunk below mine in the Poseidon cabin.
“I am home. I've lived here for nine years. I lived at your home for three years. I lived on the streets for one year. I barely even remember living with you and Mom and Gabe. I do, however remember exactly how it felt to get abandoned.” I said, with just the slightest touch of betrayal in my voice.
“Molly, Mom didn't abandon you, remember? That was all Gabe being a jerk.”
“I know...it's just...sometimes...well, sometimes I wish I had gotten to grow up like a normal girl. I now that's impossible for a half-blood, but I never even got a life in the first place, at least you got to grow up with a mom. I just got stuck in the Hermes cabin for five years. I'm not used to the normal world, even though I've seen it on trips. I can't live outside of camp all year. I don't belong there.”
“Molly, you can't just stay here your whole life if you have a family back home.” He pleaded.
“Posy's a year rounder.” I stated.
“Posy doesn't have what you have. I'm sure if Posy's mom was still alive, she would only come for the summer. Molly, Mom wants to get to know you better, she missed a lot of years and wants to start making up for it. Come home. Just for one year.”
“I'll have to think about.” I said. Then I got up and walked out of the cabin.
I walked by the cabins until I came to the one for Hades. The cabin still freaks me out a little bit, Hades being the 'god of the dead' and all. But I've gotten used to it.
“Posy?” I called, opening the door.
“Oh, hey Molly.” She said. “How's it going?”
“Not so great.” I said. “Percy wants me try living at home.”
“And I'm nervous. It's like I want to, but I don't want to. I...well, I don't really feel comfortable around Mom and Paul. They're really nice, and they seem like great parents, but I just don't feel like I belong.”
Cea-Cea: I'll let you decide what you want to say. (Also, do you care if I talk for Posy in the future, or would you like me to let you post your response?)
