i know alot of people are writing these, and i dont want them thinking im stealing their ideas, but their stories inspired to write one of my own. I hope you like it.
Here he was, i thought, possibly a child of the big three. Lying down sleeping. Ew.. he's drooling. What if i just tried to wipe it off he's cheek.. where's that paper towel. Oh my gods! he's waking up!
"What will happen at the summer solstice?" I quickly blurted out.
"What?" he said trying to sit up.
I was hoping no one would walk in becuase I hated not knowing things and Chiron wouldn't be too happy if he found out I was asking this guy all these questions.
"What's going on!?" I screamed in a whisper tone. "What was stolen!? We've only got a few weeks!"
He shook his head as if confused of what I was saying, but he had to know about it! Right?
"I'm sorry" he said, "I don't"
I wanted to scream YOU DONT WHAT?! TELL ME! but I heard someone knock at the door. I sort of panicked so I stuffed some pudding in his mouth.
It was Chiron and Grover at the door. They we're wondering how he was doing. He was starting to swallow the pudding i stuffed in his mouth so i stuffed in some more because i didnt want him telling Chiron i was asking him all these questions. He had one last swallow before drifting back to sleep.
"How long was he awake?" Chiron asked. Grover just stared at him with a worried look on his face.
"Oh for about 2 minutes, he didnt say much" I lied, "He just mumbled something about basketball and went back to sleep."
"I'll stay here Chiron." Grover said with a sad voice. "When he wakes up again i'll take him right to you."
"Very well." Said Chrion, and he trotted off. Grover looked at me probably suspecting Percy said some other things than basketball, but i left the room quickly.
I caught up with Chiron. He was sitting with Mr.D as they played cards. Mr.D kept insisting on having wine, but Chiron warned him, that Zues was watching.
"Fine!" Mr.D finally gave in.
I played some pinochle with them for a while then as it began to darken i stood up and walked around the porch. When i saw Grover come around and Percy following I leaned against the railing and stared at them eager to find out what he was going to say.
Grover introduced us Percy to Mr.D, when he said my name i looked up.
"The girl, that's Annabeth Chase. She's just a camper." I didn't like that description, i was far more than "Just a camper." Grover continued. "She's been here longer then just about anybody. And you already know Chiron..."
I wanted to tell Percy who my mother was. Athena. godess of wisdom and battle strategy. I wanted to tell him how good i was in Capture the Flag. I wanted to well... impress him. Then Percy yelled
"Mr.Brunner!" Chiron invited him to play that stupid card game. I was just here to find out about what was stolen... and i must admit, this Percy guy wasn't so bad looking. But no. I can't get distracted by a stupid boy.
"Annabeth..." Chiron said, i walked over and stood next to him. I was hoping Chiron would tell Percy all the good stuff about me, all the things i wanted everyone to know.
"This young lady nursed you back to health, Percy." Ew. I hated being described as "young lady" but i respect what Chiron says about me. He practicly raised me after all, and knows all the good i've done and can do. Chiron faced me. "Annabeth, my dear, why don't you go check on Percy's bunk? We'll be putting him in Cabin Eleven for now."
"Sure Chiron." I said. I stared at Percy. I wanted to pick out his weaknesses, not to be snotty or mean or judgemental, but he just defeated The Minotaur and i have never gotten the chance to do anything like fight monsters out of camp. I didnt want to feel inferior by this guy. So that's when i said, "You drool in your sleep." I didn't want to wait around for either his response, or the awkward silence, so i ran toward the Hermes cabin hoping Luke was there.
Before entering i combed my fingers throught my hair and straightend myself up the best i could. I liked to impress Luke. I wasn't.. in love with him. It was more like i admired him. He saved me in the alleyway after all. I entered the cabin and it was so loud it blocked out my thoughts. I stood there for a minute trying to register why i was there. Then i saw Luke and told him about Percy. He smiled at me- which almost made me fall over- saying he'll make room for him, i tried my best not to blush when i heard his voice. He smiled at me and i smiled back, so obviously blushing then ran out catching up with my siblings.
