James Winters was a smart, handsome, clear-sighted man, about the age of 25. He owned a small fashion business company and was very wealthy. One day he was at a bar drinking when he saw a beautiful gorgeous woman. She had long, wavy black hair and startling blue eyes. She reminded him of a past girlfriend of his. She flirted with him, and he fell in love with her. They went back to his home and did it with each other. The next day he woke up in his boxers with a note and a huge headache. The note read: 'I had to go. -A'. He knew it was the woman because she said her name was Alexis.
A few months later he found a child on his door step. All there was a basket with a baby and note. The note said: ‘She’s yours. -A’. James didn’t know what else to do, so he took the child in. He raised the child, teaching her different stuff, hiring the best tutors for her. He even hired a fitness trainer at around 10 years, and a martial arts tutor for her at 6. She was homeschooled by several tutors and mentors like math, language, science, history, etc. He would also buy her almost everything she wanted. When she was 9, he took her to the Winter Olympics and bought the best seats.
When she was 10, he even took her into work to meet his coworkers. He cared an awful lot for her and treated her very nicely. James and Nicole had quite a strong relationship with each other as she grew up, despite the fact he had to work a lot. She played piano, guitar, violin, oboe, trumpet, clarinet, and sang. She spoke Greek, English, Spanish, French, Latin, and Russian. She loved acting and writing stories, as well as songs. She was also really popular on YouTube for covering songs and even making some of her own. She also did monologues for her fans.(Her father helped create and record her songs and also helped manage her account, so he knew about it.)
What James didn't know, was that the fitness trainer he hired was switched with a satyr when Nicole was 13, who was also Nicole's protector. Apparently the previous trainer went on "permanent leave"(not kill, but just some use of the Mist). One day, when she was 13 years old, the fitness trainer was teaching Nicole a new training technique, when a hellhound came running at them. Ash, the fitness trainer, took out the pipes and started playing, took vines and we started coming out of the ground and roping the hellhound. The hellhound collapsed and dissolved when it hit his sword. "Nicole, we got to go, now!"
"Ash, what is happening? What's going on? What was that thing?" Nicole asked.
"Look, I'll tell you later, but first we need to get to your father, is he home?" Ash asked.
"Um...yeah, he is," Nicole said checking her watch.
"Let's go then," he said bringing Nicole to the house, just a few blocks away.
They walked into the living room where James was sitting, reading the newspaper. "Mr. Winters, we need to talk, it's about your daughter..." Ash explained that Nicole was a demigod, and she needed to get to camp.
He even showed pictures of camp and showed maps of the camp as well. He also had to take his pants off before even listened to a word he was saying. At first James freaked out at all this, and almost called the police, but after hours of explaining, he finally believed Ash. Nicole agreed to go. Ash also gave Nicole a bronze coin and told her it was from her mom. If she flipped it to heads it would be a bow and arrow, but if she flipped it to tails, it would be a sword and shield.
They drove off to camp. They encountered another hellhound and a harpy. The hellhound smashed the car. Ash told Nicole to run. Reluctantly, she ran, but the harpy flew at her. Nicole flipped the coin and it landed on heads. A bow formed, and Nicole fired an arrow, which missed the harpy. She shot again, this time it hit its wing. Once more she shot, and the arrow hit the harpy's head, making it weaken, and then finally she shot it in the head again, making it dissolve.
Ash used his pipes to wrap vines around the hellhound, strangling it and making it turn into a lovely tree, giving them enough time to escape. Nicole and Ash crossed the border. Seconds later, Aphrodite claimed her, and Ash went to inform Alexander the Great that Nicole was there. Nicole stays year-round for extra training.
