Josephine Cuthro was one of the few female sailors aboard the U.S.S Tillamook, she like her son is extremely loyal. Since Aeolus and Poseidon both play a factor in sailing, the 2 gods all started to develop feelings for the loyal sailor. Unfortunately both of them decided to go and win her heart. This would normally not be a big deal. Josephine was used to the Sailors hitting on her, a sailor when out at sea will become sex-deprived. So having men hit on her randomly was not a big deal for Josephine.
However having 2 gods with divine powers fight over her, in front her no less, freaked Josephine out a little. However once Josephine screamed and hid from the gods, they looked at each other and came up with a silent contest. They would explain who they were and each spend a day with her on her next shore leave. At the end of it all, they would ask Josephine which god she wished to have a relationship with, if ANY. Josephine took the news rather well, she didn't scream, or accuse them of lying. No Josephine fainted. When she came to, she agreed to the whole thing. So on the first day of her shore leave, she the day with Poseidon, who took her to the beach, and just spent the time talking with her trying to find out more about her. On the whole the day was great. She also kissed Poseidon on the cheek, he smiled, kissed her hand, and walked into the ocean. The next day was spent with Aeolus, who took her flying. Josephine was scared of heights, at the end of the day though, that fear was gone, in fact she loved heights.
That night the gods assembled together along with Josephine. Josephine looked them all in the eye and said "I love you both but I have to say Aeolus won my heart." Said god was overjoyed while the other one smiled softly and disappeared. That night, Daemyn was conceived. When Aeolus found out he was overjoyed. 9 months later, Daemyn Cuthro entered the world.
A few memerable events for Josephine were Daemyn's first steps at age 1. His first word "Mama" at age 2, and finally one day when he was 3 and Josephine was holding him, Daemyn saw a heart shaped locket on Josephine's neck, Daemyn held it in his hand and said "Heart." Josephine smiled and nodded. "Yes baby, it is a heart."
Daemyn let go of it and snuggled close to Josephine and started to fall asleep, befor ehe did though he said. "I love you Mama." Daemyn then promptly fell asleep. Josephine smiled at the toddler in her arms and said "I love you too baby."
Daemyn and his mother lived in New Hampshire in a small town called Lee. Daemyn attended Oyster River, and life went on. Josephine was slightly concerned because her son spent most of his time in his room reading. He never went to anyone's house, and no one ever came over. Daemyn got all A's and Josephine was proud of that, but she was concerned about her son's social life. Life was good for the Cuthro's.
It happened when Daemyn was 14. Daemyn was at school in lunch, talking with one of his few friends when all of a sudden,the Principal came over said "Child of Wind, prepare to die." Daemyn and his friend turned to look at the principal who had somehow turned into seal-dog like thing. He said it again "Child of Wind prepare to die."The two kids looked at each other and laughed. "Nice trick Mr. Hall," said the girl who Daemyn had a slight crush on. The dog-like thing turned to her. "You shall die too Ms. Cusato." The girl laughed again. "Enough talk," the dog thing said. "Prepare to die." the dog-thing grabbed the girl. Then ran and jumped out the window. Daemyn stood there shell-shocked until he ran out after them, leaving the school full of screaming children behind him.
Daemyn chased the dog-thing all the way to an isolated cove, where the thing jumped into the water. Daemyn without thinking charged in after it. The darn thing was swimming further down. Daemyn was about to go up for air, when he found that he didn't need any. He shrugged and swam after it. He was about 20 feet down when he saw a bright glow. The dog-thing swam into it, and Daemyn followed suit. Once he entered he noticed two things: One he suddenly wasn't in water and 2. he was completely dry. The dog-thing had tied up the girl and stuffed her in a corner. The dog-thing was over by what looked like a forge. Daemyn looked around for a weapon of some sort. He saw a hand-and-a- half sword that had a brownish tinge to it. Daemyn shrugged grabbed it and charged. The dog-thing turned snarled and turned to dust as Daemyn decapitated it. The girl was staring at him wide-eyed. Daemyn turned found a holster for the sword strapped it to his waist. Grabbed the girl, turned and left the forge, he was preparing swi up when suddenly he was blasted out the water, onto the cove where 2 men stood. One wore plaid shirt, sandals, and shorts, and had a fishing pole. The other was dressed like a world war two pilot. The one dressed in the avaitor get up stepped forward. His father stepped forward and said "Daemyn, my son, I am a Greek god." The gods then explained to Daemyn about Greek myth, how they met his mother, and what he needed to do. "Daemyn you must go to Camp Half-Blood, the young lady will escort you and it as at Thaila's pine that we shall find out wheter she a demigod or not."
It was then that Daemyn awoke from his dream. He had fallen hard clearly. He awoke on a soft ground much diffrent than the beach where he had landed. He looked around as he tried to sit up but winced. The dog-thing had gouged him in the shoulder. "Don't try to sit up." The girl said. Daemyn smiled.
"Of course not, I can live with you as my healer." She smiled. "How long have I been out."
"Just a couple hours." Daemyn's face turned grim as he remebered his dream.
"We have to get to Long Island." The girl looked at him strangely.
"I'll explain on the way to my house." Daemyn sat up and winced. The girl put his hand on his shoulder. She tried to get him to lay back down, but he shrugged her off. "Come on let's go." The pair walked back to Daemyn's house,while Daemyn explained who he was and what she might be.When he opened the door, his mother was standing there with a look of concern on her face. "It's time for you to go?" Daemyn nodded. "Who told you?"
"Dad." She hugged him.
"Oh Daemyn, why did you have to grow up so fast?" She cried. Daemyn's face was grim.
"I don't know mom. But I think i'm going to be a year-rounder. I don't want to put you at risk by me being here." Daemyn's mother cried even more.
"Here Daemyn, I had packed stuff for you when the time came." She handed him a duffel bag, then looked at the girl. "You Ms. Cusato are going with him. I've contacted your mom, and she agrees with me, on the off chance that you're a demigod, you're going with Daemyn." She nodded. "Here's a bag for you, your mom brought it over." She handed her the bag. "Now off with you two, before I change my mind." Daemyn knocked on the door and she opned it her eyes red. "Okay two things: 1. How are we going to get to Long Island. and 2: I'll miss you mom." Her mom sobbed and hugged Daemyn. "I'll miss you too sweetheart. Here's a drachma call the fate's cab. Now be off before I keep upu here." She closed the door. Sat agansit the back of it and pulled out a locket from under her shirt. She opened and smiled at the picture of her and Aeolus. Closed it held it and said "Protect your son Aeolus Please do one more thing for me." Outside the wind blew lightly. But she wasn't done yet. "Poseidon, I know I hurt you, but please, please protect Daemyn." Outside the Ocean crashed, and Josephine smiled. "Thank you."
Meanwhile in the Fate's cab, Daemyn and the girl were being whisked off at Mach 5 towards Long Island. Upoun arrival they were ungracefully ejected from the cab. They stood up and looked at each other and smiled they were nearly there! That's when a telekhine decided to extact his revege. This unlike it's brethern time it didn't waste time. It charged. Daemyn was turned the other way. So he didn't see it till it was too late. The telekine stabbed the girl in the heart. Daemyn eye's turned red and he killed the telekhine by removing it's head. Daemyn knelt down by the girl. He looked her in the eye and she shook her head. "Daemyn, I'm good as dead-"
"Don't say that,"
"It's true sweet Daemyn."
"Yes, no shhh I must say what i need to. Daemyn do..not..linger."
"But I love you."
She smiled, "I know," That's when she passed. And that's where they found him, kneeling in front of her, crying. "NOOOOO! You can't take me from her." One of the kids dragging him looked him in the eye. "She's dead. I'm sorry but she is." Daemyn looked him in the eye, sighed. "You're right she's dead, but that doesn't mean anything." Daemyn knelt picked up the body bridal style, and started up the hill.
Daemyn was 14 when he went up the hill.
