Tito is a demigod.
He is torn between family and loyalty.
I crossed my arms over my chest, sending a prayer to whoever may help me.
I stared over the edge, into the water, 20 feet below me.
I came up, a son of Poseidon.
I couldn't help but smile as the boy held the knife to my throat.
Didn't he know I was on his side?
I faked fear. I represent fear, although I think there's a god for that. I'm new to all of this.
I stared forward, my eyes wide. "W-what's happening?" I asked, pretending to be scared.
"You're a traitor to Kronos," the boy with the knife snarled.
"Why would I be?" I asked.
"You're not on his side," the boy murmured. His voice was beginning to make me feel tired, and I realized- this was the son of Morpheus.
"I'm Tito!" I shouted. "Let me go!"
The knife pulled away, I was suddenly wide awake...
I groaned as I woke up. My head throbbed. There was a cup of water next to me and I smiled.
Water heals me. Duh.
I touched the water and the throbbing stopped, and I felt the skin on my neck seal.
The skin on my neck? My mind raced to figure out where I could of...
Had Morpheus's son actually cut me?
I groaned and sat up to see where I was.
I already knew. 57 degrees East, 45 degrees North. I was on a ship at sea.
I glanced to my right, where there was a man standing in the door.
A scar down his face. Long blond hair. Striking blue eyes.
"Who are you?" I asked.
"The boy who put you to sleep," he said. "I'm Beta. Son of Morpheus."
Beta... I struggled to place it. Blond boy. Beta. Beta. B!
"You're named after the second letter of the Greek alphabet!" I realized out loud.
Beta smirked. "Yeah."
Two more people appeared behind him- an older boy and a younger girl.
The boy gasped. "Finally!" he said. To me, he said, "You have to excuse Beta, he put you to sleep by accident."
"I did," I replied.
"See, Kappa?" the girl asked.
"Shut up," Kappa snarled.
"Your name is Kappa?" I asked quietly.
The boy nodded. "Eros's son."
Oh, gods, Eros. I shied away from him. "What about you?" I asked the girl.
"I'm Rho," she said quietly. "Spelled R-H-O."
I nodded. "I'm Tito."
"Cool name," Beta commented.
I nodded. "But you three are all named after the Greek alphabet..."
Rho nodded. "Our mom was weird."
"Wait... you all had the same mom?" I stood at this.
"They all loved her, and Morpheus had to put her to sleep," Beta mumbled. "To... make me."
I shied away from the conversation and asked Rho, "Who's your Olympian parent?"
"Khaos," Rho said gruffly.
Khaos- the god of chaos. This could be helpful.
I grinned. "I'm son of Poseidon."
They all gasped, and Rho stepped back.
"What?" I asked.
"Y-you're the son of a major god!" Beta breathed. "No way."
"Way..." I said hesitantly.
"Oh, Luke has got to meet you!" Kappa said.
"Who's Luke?" I asked.
"Kronos's future host," Beta told me.
I was whisked off by my three new friends. I was going to meet Luke.
Whoever he was.
"Come on, Tito!" Kappa snarled.
I stood back. "No, way."
I had seen Luke. A golden coffin. A scythe.
"Tito, he won't be Kronos's host for another month," Rho mumbled. She shoved me into the room.
Luke was there. He had a scar down his face. He looked a lot like Beta...
Where was Beta?
Luke turned around and saw me. His face broke into a wide, evil smile.
"Good, have you captured him?" Luke asked Kappa.
"In a way..." Kappa mumbled.
"I already worked for your army," I snarled. "I was on a mission, and a son of Morpheus found me and accidentally put me to sleep."
Luke looked thoughtful. "Where were you going?"
"To spy. At Camp Half-Blood," I added.
Luke nodded. "Then go, and bring your... friends. You can absorb more information that way."
Rho's eyes widened. "We- we have to leave?"
Kappa's eyes blazed. "I'm not leaving, not within a month of the final transformation!"
Luke glared at him.
Kappa stepped forward. "You can't send us away."
I sighed. "Kappa, get over it. Come on, we have to get Beta."
"Beta?" Luke asked. His eyes were bright as he asked, "Who's Beta?"
"My brother," Kappa mumbled. "He's a son of Morpheus."
"You're a son of Morpheus?" Luke asked, obviously impressed.
"No," Kappa replied, "I'm a son of Eros."
Rho grinned evilly. "I'm the daughter of Khaos, and his sister."
Luke looked confused, and I elbowed Kappa.
Kappa sighed. "We've got to go. On your mission."
Luke held up a hand. "Wait, explain how you three have different fathers and you're still- oh."
"Got it?" I asked. "I've got to go."
As I left the room, I realized that I never told him that I was the son of Poseidon.
