Annabeth
The Gods knows how long I've been waiting for this. For 8 months, I've been searching for him. That's about almost a year and too long for my liking. Although I do understand the action of Hera/Juno, that doesn't stop me from wanting to punch her in the face. Of course, there are other factors that lead up to that, such as sending me cows with intestinal problems, but kidnapping my boyfriend for 8 months just crossed the line.
"Annabeth, we're about 2 hours from there. I sent the letter to Tyson already, apparently, there was a battle in the Roman Camp last night." Piper reported, standing next to me. I was leaning over the rail, waiting anxiously. Telling me that there was a battle in the Roman Camp did not ease down the churning in my stomach. Piper noticed me turning pale from the news.
"But I heard from Tyson that Percy is alright. He even became the Praetor!" She said nervously. I let out a sigh of relief and ran my hand through my hair. Thank Gods Malcom had the nerve to tell me to take a shower before leaving. What sort of reunion would that be? Gods, I don't even want to know.
"So, your boyfriend took my position as Praetor. Darn, I was hoping to retain some power there." Jason walked up also leaning on the side of the ship, maybe too far. But hey, even if he fell, he could just fly right back up, which is why no one basically cared if he fell off the ship. I rolled my eyes at his comment.
"The point of an exchange of leaders was supposed to be that way, wasn't it? You take Percy's place, he takes yours. I think that's reasonable enough."
"True, but remember, I'm a Roman. It's natural for me to feel disappointed that I don't have power."
"Roman or not, I think you shouldn't get your ego too big." Piper playfully punched Jason in the arm. He just pretended to be in pain, although I couldn't help but notice the tattoo in his arm. I wonder if Percy already got one of those, and if he does, I hope it wasn't too painful. The way Jason described it sounded excruciating, even if it was for a second.
"Speaking of ego, I thought I heard Leo asking you what his position was earlier this morning." Jason said, smirking. I couldn't help but crack a small smile too. Piper rolled her eyes.
"I called him the Repair Boy." He let out a laugh and so did Piper, I just smiled.
"Nice, but I bet he changed it to something else."
"I think he called himself the Supreme Commander or something like that."
"Well, he was the leader in building the ship." I reasoned out.
"Exactly, that's why he's the repair boy too." Piper replied. We let out a laugh when we heard Leo exclaiming "I heard that!"
I left the two of them there to enjoy themselves, I haven't really noticed until now, but I can't believe they hadn't gotten together yet. Though it's understandable, Jason would usually get nervous whenever Piper did some things that girlfriends would normally do. That's when it hit me there, what if Percy found someone else during the time he was there? What if by the time I get there, he has another girlfriend?
Ouch. Not exactly what I should be thinking right now, all I can do is hope for the best and trust Percy. Of course, I should mentally prepare myself for the worst. Walking around the ship, I noticed that everyone was laid back, but I could tell that there was an anticipating atmosphere. We were all nervous about the Romans, and though I hate to admit it, so was I. Clarisse was sharpening her spear, while giving a death glare at Will Solace every once in a while, Travis was "flirting" with Katie, who keeps rejecting him, Connor was painting a mango gold(which I'll have to confiscate later), and Thalia was laying on the hammock, although it's painfully obvious that she's had enough sky travelling for one day.
"Why am I here again?" I could hear her mumbling to herself.
There were a lot of thoughts in my head right now, so much that if I wasn't a child of Athena, I'd probably be lying down in the hammock next to Thalia. I'd rather dumb it down, no offense. I had battle strategies racing through my mind, Percy, how the Romans will react to us, Percy, where Nico went off too, Percy, how Tyson is, and oh, did I mention Percy, yet?
I sat down in one of the benches installed at the ship, I was fingering my father's college ring and my Camp necklace. I have at least nine beads with the most recent one being my most painful, yet favorite bead to earn. I smiled at the memory of initiating the kiss with Percy. It was sweet of him to make that air bubble around us at the bottom of the lake, serves Clarisse and everyone else right. Then I remembered the next two months of dating before he disappeared; he would always accompany me to Mount Olympus and take me out afterwards. Of course, his mom got suspicious, but we didn't do anything else really. He was my best friend, my boyfriend, I think Aphrodite is getting into my head. I decided to take a small nap, just for a while. But did I manage to get it? Nope, not at all because just as soon as I closed my eyes, I heard Leo shouting orders.
"Prepare to land! We'll be down in 10 minutes!" This alerted everyone who started cleaning the ship up, and preparing themselves. I can hear a blow horn or something like that from a distance. And I can see the Roman Camp, but the thing is, it wasn't just a Camp. At least now I know why Jason wouldn't describe the Camp any further. It was a basically a city, a small version of Rome, but still beautiful. I could see Coliseums and Temples from this distance. The architecture was so ancient and so magnificent, I could just stare at it all day sketching them down. But then I remembered the real reason I was here.
Apparently, there was already a group of Demigods forming down there, making a crowdm some were wearing togas? I'm not exactly sure. It seems that some of them are on guard, great, they already don't trust us. I see two people who stand out in the crowd. Oh my gods, this is it. For the first time in 8 months, I get to see him again. I hope he remembers me. Idiot, of course he'll remember you. But I still couldn't help but doubt that.
The ship landed with a thud that made everyone almost lose their balance, we all glared at Leo who just laughed nervously with his hand behind his head. Jason stared at the Roman demigods. His Demigods. We opened up the gate and the stairs down. There were two people who were awaiting us on the front line of the crowd, one was a boy and one was a girl.
Jason went first with me following just behind him. He stopped and went rigid as he saw the strikingly familiar girl with dark hair. She was standing tall and was seemingly confident, it was clear that she was one of the leaders, and she was staring wistfully back at Jason. Yikes, seems like Piper does have competition after all. And then I noticed him, the one I've been searching day and night for. He somehow looked different, he seems more confident, more proud even, but he was still handsome as ever. I took one quick glance at his arm, no mistaking it, there was a tattoo in his arm similar to Jason's and that other girl, except his has a trident instead and only 1 line under it. For a while, everything was quiet, the Romans were still on their guard, our side, no, with that way of thinking, there's no way we'll ever get along, we have to accept that the Romans are on our side as well. But still, everyone was quiet, to put it bluntly, it was way too awkward. Finally, someone broke that awkward silent in probably the most casual way ever.
"Hey Annabeth, nice to see you again." And for that, I wanted to smack Percy in his head.

PERCY

"Let me introduce you to my other family."

Percy led Frank and Hazel into the clearing where the ship just landed. Percy stood side by side with Reyna, his co-praetor, while Frank, Hazel and all the other Romans stood behind them.

The ship was enormous! Bigger than any ship Percy has ever seen. On its mast was a head of a dragon which looked pretty familiar to Percy. Percy thought that the Leo kid, the supreme commander/Repair boy, was definitely a son of Hephaestus. Who else could have built such a ship?

Percy was startled when Reyna whispered in his ear. "Do you… Do you think he remembers me like how you remembered Annabeth?"

Percy knew he was talking about Jason, the previous Praetor who was brought to Camp Half-Blood as an exchange and a guy whose memory had probably been erased by Hera.

Percy could tell Reyna was nervous and needed assurance even if she was trying to hide it but Percy doesn't really know how to answer her. As far as he knew, he only remembered Annabeth because she was very much dear to him. Percy doesn't really know if Jason loved Reyna as much as he loved Annabeth but he knew Reyna. "Well, if he didn't then it would be his loss. And besides once he sees you, I'm pretty sure he'll come crawling back."

Percy was relieved that Reyna smiled at the compliment. "Thanks Jackson."

Percy knew they had barely known each other but he knew that what they have is real friendship even if they started out as Percy destroying Reyna's home and Reyna swearing to have revenge.

Their conversation was cut when the door slowly opened and a boy with blonde hair raising his arms in surrender emerged. Percy recognized him as Jason Grace from his dream.

Percy heard the Romans gasp, including Reyna, mostespeciallyReyna. The boy slowly made his way toward them.

He was only six steps away when he stopped. Percy noticed that the guy was looking at him. He smiled and Percy awkwardly smiled back. Then he scanned the crowd. Lastly, he looked at Reyna, intently. There was dead silence. Percy was sure all of them, including him, were looking at them too.

Percy knew that Jason and Reyna almost had a relationship, a romantic one. In given time, that was what Reyna had told him. But Jason had been gone for 8 months. No one really knew where they stand now.

Reyna spoke first, breaking the tension. "Jason Grace. You have finally returned." She spoke with a talk-business-now-personal-stuff-later tone. Jason looked at her and simply replied "Reyna."

Then she rushed forward and hugged him. Jason hugged her back. Percy couldn't help but smile. He could see that they missed each other but he also noticed that Jason was a bit hesitant.

Reyna, breaking the hug, took and raised Jason's hand. "JASON GRACE!" she shouted and everyone cheered. That is, everyone except Octavian and his followers.

"Umm… sorry to break the mood and all that but where are the Greeks?" Percy interrupted.

Jason looked at him and gave a simple "Oh."

When I saw the Greeks my heart almost gave out. Among them were two new demigods, one I recognized as Leo from the massage before, while the other was introduced as Piper. As I saw Annabeth my palms began to sweat and words would not come to me. It was finally her and all I could say is "Hey Annabeth, nice to see you again."…..she rolled her beautiful eyes and ran toward as I ran toward her.
As we embraced each other in a hug and later a kiss, I felt completely home. The tension was broken again and this time it was Octavian, he casually came in the midst of us.
“Back to business then” said Octavian.
That moment I knew that the entire Hell would break loose…….

Their conversation was cut when the door slowly opened and a boy with blonde hair raising his arms in surrender emerged. Percy recognized him as Jason Grace from his dream.
Percy heard the Romans gasp, including Reyna, most especially Reyna. The boy slowly made his way toward them.
He was only six steps away when he stopped. Percy noticed that the guy was looking at him. He smiled and Percy awkwardly smiled back. Then he scanned the crowd. Lastly, he looked at Reyna, intently. There was dead silence. Percy was sure all of them, including him, were looking at them too.
Percy knew that Jason and Reyna almost had a relationship, a romantic one. In given time, that was what Reyna had told him. But Jason had been gone for 8 months. No one really knew where they stand now.
Reyna spoke first, breaking the tension. "Jason Grace. You have finally returned." She spoke with a talk-business-now-personal-stuff-latterr­ to­ne. Jason looked at her and simply replied "Reyna."
Then she rushed forward and hugged him. Jason hugged her back. Percy couldn't help but smile. He could see that they missed each other but he also noticed that Jason was a bit hesitant.
Reyna, breaking the hug, took and raised Jason's hand. "JASON GRACE!" she shouted and everyone cheered. That is, everyone except Octavian and his followers. When I saw the Greeks my heart almost gave out. Among them were two new demigods, one I recognized as Leo from the massage before, while the other was introduced as Piper. As I saw Annabeth my palms began to sweat and words would not come to me. It was finally her and all I could say is "Hey Annabeth, nice to see you again."…..she rolled her beautiful eyes and ran toward as I ran toward her.
As we embraced each other in a hug and later a kiss, I felt completely home. The tension was broken again and this time it was Octavian, he casually came in the midst of us.
“Back to business then” said Octavian.
That moment I knew that the entire Hell would break loose…….


III. Percy

As was foretold all Hell did break loose and all because of Octavian. His tongue is as dangerous like snakes poison. As soon as the ship landed Octavian screamed "They have weapons"
"they will fall upon us and we will all die"
"Of course they have weapons...you retard...do you not know that we are going on a dangerous quest?" Percy answered sarcastically
Percy noticed that Octavian was afraid of the Greeks,rather he had a look of hatred on his face.
When everyone entered the pavilion the great meeting started.
There was a lot of discussion and happy reunions, but still there was a weird atmosphere around. Besides the leaders, there was no eye contact. Annabeth gently held my hand "It will be okay, we will get along" for she knew how nervous Percy felt.
Smiling Percy nodded " I know" he lied.
Percy's palms were sweating as he loudly announced " Let the meeting begin"
