Percy paused in the process of capping his sword. For the past few minutes, he had been amusing himself by uncapping his pen, letting the ball-point tip transform into his bronze-bladed sword, Riptide. Then he would recap it and watch the blade shrink back down. And then he would repeat. Over and over again. Annabeth thought she was going to go mad if she had to hear the ring of the metal and the click of the cap one more time.
Percy gave her a sheepish look and placed his pen-sword in the front pocket of his jeans. "Sorry," he said, unconvincingly.
Annabeth rolled her eyes and went back to staring with increasing frustration at the architectural designs laid out messily in front of her. She was attempting to get some work done on the reconstruction of Olympus, but so far it wasn't working out too well; the side notes and calculations had started floating off the page and twisting themselves

She couldn't stop thinking about him.
He was probably so lonely out there, all on his own, with no one but strangers to see to his needs.
He probably doesn't even remember me, she thought despairingly. He probably has no recollection of the numerous quests they have gone on together; the many times they've saved the world from the demons and titans hidden from the common mortal's view.
It had been a normal camp night; they had trained in the sword arena, they had eaten lunch and gave offerings to the Gods, they had sat beside the bonfire amongst all the other campers.
But everything that she knew to be normal was suddenly ripped away from her.
Apparently, one of the gods (Hera that insolent little cow-pie) had kidnapped him in the middle of the night

Annabeth's leg felt like it was pulling free of her body. Pain washed everything in red. The force of the Underworld tugged at her like dark gravity. She didn't have the strength to fight. She knew she was too far down to be saved.
"Percy, let me go," she croaked. "You can't pull me up."
His face was white with effort. She could see in his eyes that he knew it was hopeless.
"Never," he said. He looked up at Nico, fifteen feet above. "The other side, Nico! We'll see you there. Understand?"
Nico's eyes widened. "But-"
"Lead them there!" Percy shouted. "Promise me!"

Annabeth threw her pencil down in frustration; it bounced of the wall in front of the desk and rolled to a stop over her half-completed sketch. She was trying to design a building that Apollo wanted for the new Oracle of Delphi, in case if she stays at Mt Olympus. Unfortunately she didn't seem to be able to get her head into the right frame of mind for architecture.
She just couldn't seem to get a certain pair of sea green eyes out of her head.
Stupid Seaweed Brain, Annabeth mentally cursed him. What gave him the right to make her, Annabeth Chase, daughter of Athena the Goddess of Wisdom, feel so confused? She groaned and massaged her forehead. If her mother found out what she was thinking right now
Annabeth's mind drifted off into that world were she could just be around Percy, with no monsters or titans or immortal parents or other people interrupting them. They would fly into the ocean sunset on Blackjack, Percy's arms wrapped protectively around Annabeth's waist

Percy was silent for a minute. Then he let out a groan. "Why do you always have to be right, Wise Girl?"
She laughed wrapping her arms around his waist. "I told you, I'm always right and you're usually wrong." Percy rolled his eyes, but remained quiet, he had nothing to prove her wrong.
"What constellation is that one?" Annabeth suddenly asked, lifting her hand and pointing to an cluster of stars.
"That's Andromeda. Poseidon (Not Neptune right?) had sent Cetus, monster, to attack Ethiopia after Cassiopeia had bragged that she was more beautiful then the Nereids. Her father, Cephus, found out that the only way to stop the monster was to sacrifice his own daughter, so Andromeda was chained to a rock by the sea. But after arriving from defeating Medusa, Perseus turned Cetus into stone - "
"And, therefore, saved Andromeda. Quite a hero, that Perseus," Annabeth finished, getting lost into the immense depths of the night sky and its many stars. "But I still think you're more impres

Sally Jackson had never felt so sad and happy at the same time.
How? How had this happened all so fast?
It was meant to. The fates made it happened. Her adorable little boy with jet black hair and eyes like the seas was growing up. He was soon going to be out of high school, out of the apartment, out of her life, busy leading his own life and fighting monsters.
But he'd always be in her heart, and, no doubt, would she be in his. But she had learned that she had to share his heart now.
It was so strange seeing him smile as he ate breakfast right across the table from her and know that his smile was from a special feeling, one feeling she had experienced a couple of times in her life.
And the way he would spend hours talking in his room on the phone with this person made her heart ache.
Maybe she had figured it out, at night when she came to check up on him and hear him mutter one name, one name that now meant the world to him.
It was made her sad to think that now his

Aphrodite giggled for quite some time. "Ha-ha, I'm laughing SO HARD!!" Annabeth leaked sarcasm into every word. "Aphrodite, my lady, could possibly get us clothes?!?! Is that too much to ask?" It took a few moments but she finally dressed them in proper camp attire; an orange Camp Half Blood t-shirt, jean shorts and matching sneakers. "Thank you."
"Alright, so now I do believe I'm done laughing I think. Anyway I need you to do me a favor." Her joking smile was replaced by a forced snicker. Her face, my face, was a mask of concentration. "I need you to help me retrieve a extremely special and rare item of my department, love." She leaned in and said in an arousing voice, "Loooovvvveeee "
"APHRODITE!!!" My mother's voice boomed across the room. "THIS is NOT what I want my daughter nor my, ugh, son-in-law on this. These newlyweds are having ENOUGH things to deal with other than your needs!" Her words cut through the silence leaving them hanging. Aphrodite's composed face became

"Alright! Everybody there is something very special tonight, a group of young demigods has suggested that they could form a band for tonight's campfire. All they're missing is a singer. Is there anyone here who would like to volunteer?" Chiron's voice echoed as the campers fell silent, their eyes filled with the flickering of the flame. Then murmurs rose up when it sank in that he wasn't kidding. They debated on who would go, but no one would volunteer. Chiron's smirk grew on his face as his plan was going exactly as it should. He turned around to the band and told them his plan. They nodded and agreed, devilish smirks replacing the wide smiles.
"Percy! Could you come up here please? I should like to talk to you about something." Percy thought that this was meant for someone, but he let the thought slip as he walked up to Chiron. He heard a bleep from the crowd and found Grover with his hands on his face, trying not to laugh. When he finally got up to Chiron, he whispered, "Percy, do y

"Who even is Rachel? I've never met her."
That awkwardly broke the silence as four girls sat in a helicopter, which was currently soaring over the east coast of Philadelphia. They were all dressed in casual clothes well, all accept one, who was so particular with her clothing that she had decided to dress formally for the occasion.
The blonde girl looked up, still holding a plain envelope. Her startling stormy grey eyes seemed darker than usual, "Rachel is our Oracle. She is a bit well, eccentric," said Annabeth. She glanced back down at the envelope she admitted that she wasn't on the whole excited about sleepovers. It was a gathering of girls, where, for the most part, they talked about celebrities and make-up and boys. Not really her cup of tea.
Not to mention Annabeth took a peek at the formal girl sitting opposite her: praetor to the Twelth Legion and Roman through and through, Reyna, the daughter of Bellona. Sh
ElpisPercy POVElpis2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Percy laid on the ground. Monsters were everywhere. They had come out of nowhere, attacking them from all angles. They were only seven demigods. They couldn't defeat them. He just wanted to give up.
It burned him like Greek fire. It reminded him like he was in the River of Styx again, only this time, it was ten times worse. It felt as if his soul was burning away, he could see black spots dancing in front of his eyes. He was losing consciousness. A monster had attacked him from behind, aiming for his small part of his back. The monster was sucessful. Even though his Achilles's curse was gone, it can still hurt him like Hades.
Then he heard it. It was barely audible, mumbled and low, like he had a blanket wrapped tight around his head. Then it started to become clearer, his mind finally opening up again. Someonea girlwas shrieking his name. She was screaming it over and over. It was loud in his ear now. He suddenly felt a surge of power f

For the first time, in a long time, Annabeth thought about Rachel Elizabeth Dare.
She knew that there would never be a Rachel and Percy, there was a time that it had seemed like a possibility. So maybe, just maybe, Rachel still thinks about him.
She was also her best mortal friend, and things had changed a little every since she had been the new Delphi, but she was still Rachel, more or less. Their lives pulled in separate ways, different forces pulling apart, and now they are simply old friends, connected by an unforgettable past.
Annabeth's thoughts float to Grover and Juniper, the satyr and the nymph. They are a married couple now, traveling the world, spreading world conservation together, hand-in-hand. They're visits have become fewer and the time between them longer, but time will not erase this couple's memory.
Her mind stops on a specific girl with jet-black hair and electrifying blue eyes and Annabeth feels a slight tug at her chest. Thalia.

His green eyes met her grey ones for a second.
Piercing wails tore through Percy's mind, dragging him into consciousness. Hisses and whines seemed to wisp through every part of his brain as if a thousand monsters were being tortured inside his head. Reluctantly, he opened his eyes and saw nothing but blurred shadows. Where exactly am I? he thought, barely cognizant. Percy had to blink a few times for his vision to sharpen. He listened to the sounds that seemed not to be coming from his surroundings but from his own mind. Tartarus..?
He then became aware of his body as the sense of touch and feeling crept back, pushing away the numbness. A warm weight was on his chest and he looked down only to shudder as a wave of pain shot through his skull. With a sharp intake of breath, Percy suddenly felt as if his back was on fire and his head run through with an axe. Spots danced across his vision and he quickly succumbed

He had been gone for quite a while and it hurt to think of him at first. After a while the pain grew quieter, but it was still there. Always there. To not think of him was a thought to cause laughter. Everything around her reminded her of him. Doing what she was about to wouldn't solve anything, but it would do something different. Make something change. At least it would accomplish that. Hopefully it wouldn't hurt though.
The beach was empty surprisingly. The night was not as bright as usual and the sea not a menacing. She walked to the immense mass shivering even though the air was not cold. As she approached, the small waves reached farther of the shore as if to greet her. As if heshe banished the thought from her mind.

1) When she lowered her head slightly and refused to meet his eyes, he knew she was going to cry. And he would be there to kiss the tears away.
2) When she tugged that little curl behind her left ear, he knew she was over-thinking something. And he would be there to distract her, make her laugh, even if it meant making Athena even more displeased with his antics ( Gods, a little respect please? Maybe some gratitude? I could've just left you're godly butt to the mercy of Kronos...).

Slowly, Reyna looked up at the repair boy, who was smiling like crazy.Lipstick - A LeoxReyna Fic1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

She told him her image of how she would like to model Olympus, and he tried to listen to her every word.

Hastily, she jumped off the bed, falling onto the floor with a thump. Annabeth ran to the bathroom, her heart racing about her prediction. She starred into the mirror above the sink, and there was Percy, in his perfection. His sea-green eyes looked startled, his black hair tousled from last night, his perfect face, and he was wearing nothing but the boxers he had on last night. As she raised her hand to touch her face, and reflection Percy did the same, mimicking her. And as their eyes widen at the same time, Annabeth let out a scream much too low for her liking.
"Annabeth! Why are you screaming?" Percy walked into view. His eyes, her eyes, were shut and he was rubbing them. "And what's wrong with my voice?" he said again with Annabeth's high pitched voice. He came up to the mirror; Annabeth backed away and sat in the corner of the bathroom, stunned beyond words.

That Tone"Percy!"That Tone1 year ago in Sketches More Like This
I froze in my path. Usually, when Annabeth uses that tone with me, it means I did something wrong. And now that I'm her boyfriend, it always made me extra nervous; desperate to find an excuse to whatever it was that I did.
I saw Annabeth's dagger before I saw her. She held it in her hand as she marched towards me, her blonde curls pulled back messily into a high ponytail. I was tempted to turn and run towards the lake and risk the chance of her stabbing me in the back (figures she would be the one person who knew where my Achilles Heel is). Or maybe I could just whistle and hope that Blackjack came fast enough for me to hightail (excuse the pun) it out of there…She came closer to where I was standing and I unfroze. I didn't run, just barely keeping myself in check. Instead, I slid an easy smile onto my face and greeted my not-so-friendly-looking demigod girlfriend.
"Hey there…Annabeth," I said, wincing at the pitiful sound of my own voice.
We were facing each other, a g
