Thuke is the real tragic romance that Aphrodite was talking about. I mean seriously, Percabeth ends happily ever after. They kiss in an underwater bubble. On the other hand, Luke dies and Thalia becomes an immortal virgin. Which one sounds more like a typical Romeo and Juliet scenario (not that Luke would ever wear tights or not climb up a balcony.) Maybe Luke will end up being reborn and then him and Thalia can live happily ever after. That is if Artemis does not turn him into a jackelope or if she does not accept her lieutenant's resignation.
Thalia knocks on luke's door. Percy and Annabeth arrive at luke's place by accident. Luke says thalia led them there. She says she didn't. Luke is slepping. Thalia is begging the gods not to start a war. Luke dies.
