Shadow’s story

Since everybody els is telling their story I guess I’ll tell mine. I know your probably thinking this story will be like the others all adventurous..mine isn’t well unless you count the mysterious social worker and the baby girl me and my friend found in the woods oops I’m getting ahead of myself well I’ll start at the beginning. I was born Shadow Grace Cahill (I know my profile says Collins I’ll explain later) unlike others I was 5 when my dyslexia sunk in. My mom Amy Cahill was the most amazing mom ever. I say was because…she died of cancer when I was 6 she was diagnosed in January 2002 the year I turned 5. The doctor who diagnosed her said she only had a month to live. But the next doctor (turns out to be Apollo) said that the other (he nearly said mortal) doctor was wrong and my mom has a year to live. We did everything together….she died August 21 2003.

After that I went from foster home to foster home (most of the time running away) my social worker (a old guy at the time) threatened to put me in the worst orphanage he could find. After I ran away from a preticular ((pardon my spelling)) foster home and being caught a young lady came to the police station to pick me up she told me. I’m Nysa (that’s how she spelled it) your new social worker mr.James retired yesterday. I asked her if it was because of me. She said no he’s old and needs his rest. She had long black hair like mine but her eyes were more silver then grey. She took me to a foster home I stayed there longer then usual.

I was put in school (a few weeks after I came to the foster home) and I met Elle calihan we became best friends. It was in the spring when we found the baby. We were in our special spot in the woods when we heard a soft cry coming from deeper in the woods. We fallowed the noise when we came into a little meadow. There we saw a little cradle on the ground. Elle bent down and picked up a baby girl. She had blonde hair and the bluest eyes I’ve ever seen. We named her Lucy Jane and took turns secretly taking care of her. A few weeks later I was told I was moving to New York city to live with a young couple. When I told Elle she handed me Lucy and told me to keep her. I didnt know what to say so I wrapped up Lucy in a warm blanked and carried her to the car. She was so quite no one new she was there. So I moved in with the young couple Amanda and Ryan Collins. When they found out about Lucy they let her stay and treated her as their own baby girl.

How I joined the hunters I was at camp (after I was taken there by a sayter) when Thalia visited. She told me all about the hunters of Artemis after a while I chose to join.
