Amy Johnson was a nurse, she helped the sick and wounded. One day, after coming home from work late, she pasted down an alley. Three teenagers popped out of the alley and tried to steal her purse. Then a man who was nearby also walking heard the racket, and helped Amy escape the teenagers in one piece. Then Amy fell in love with the man, and when Zach was born, he disappeared.
Zach was born in Florida, were he loved to sit back and watch the waves crash over the rocks. But, Zach didn't really have the nice personality most people would expect from him. He wouldn't answer questions when he was mad and would offten pout. But he still grew up like a normal kid, that is, if you take away all the detentions and trouble he would get.
When he turned 11, strange things were happening, there was this teacher that would often watch him, even when he was at the park, playing with his friends. Soon, the teacher appeared in his house. It was late, and Zach was getting ready for bed, when a scream was heard downstairs. Scared, Zach slowly crept down the stairs and saw the teacher, who had one eye and a knife. The cyclops saw Zach and charged with the sword. His mother screamed, and just before the blade hit Zach, she jumped in his way, ending her life. She crumpled, and looked at Zach, and said two final words to him, "Camp Half-Blood" then she went still.
Zach stood there in shock, and the cyclops took that time to swing his sword at Zach. The result was a four-inch gash on his left arm. That was enough for Zach, he fled. He spent days thinking about his mother, now lost. One day, Zach was hiding in an ally, liking the shadows that loomed over him. Then a man came, stroked Zach's hair, which Zach pushed away in disgust, and handed him a cell phone. "From your father" He said, and disappeared. Zach flipped open the cell phone, expecting to see a message, but to his surpise, it was a four foot long bronze sword. Zach stared in awe, then pushed a piece of leather near the handle back down, then the sword transformed back into an ordinary cell phone. Then Zach decided to change homes, if he wanted to train with the sword. So he moved to the mountains, on the way up, he met a young man, in his 20's or so. The man knew he was a demigod, and told Zach to go to Camp Half-Blood. Zach didn't know what that was, but pleaded the man to teach him how to use weapons. The man saw that Zach was going to need the training, just in case he encounters a monster on his way to Camp Half-Blood. So, he took Zach into training. Zach also learned how to adapt to nature. Six years later, Zach woke up one day and saw his master was gone, there was a note on his bed, saying to go to Camp Half-Blood. Zach was upset leaving his training area, but finally he left. On his way down the mountain, Zach met a boy with brown hair. The boy said his name was terry, and he told Zach to go with him to Camp Half Blood. Being tired of hearing the name and not knowing what it means, he demanded an explanation. Terry explained and Zach slowly understood. Then one week later, Zach came to Camp Half-Blood, where he was finally glad to stop running.
