Hi guys, this is my version of The Mark of Athena. I just reposted it on the forum section. I don't own any of these characters they belong to Rick Riordan. Hope you like it!
Chapter 1 Jason
Jason was nervous.
He was pacing back and forth, on the deck of the ArgoII his purple Praetor’s cape hanging on his back. What if Reyna had replaced him? He knew Romans were different from the Greeks. They did not like having an empty Praetor’s chair for long.
Reyna was also another problem. Ever since he came back from that quest, he had remembered a girl named Reyna—his Co-Praetor and girlfriend. If she had been searching for him as desperate as Annabeth was searching for this Percy guy, and he came back with another girlfriend, what would happen? Would the camp genuinely hate him for that? Maybe Reyna might even have him removed from Praetorship.
Leo came spinning like a ballerina, mumbling, “Camp Jupiter everybody! Romanssss! Grrrreeeks! Don’t you just love flowers?...”
Piper put her hand on Jason’s shoulder. She looked like she was trying not to laugh, “Funny how easy he was.” She said.
“You charm spoke him to do that?” Jason asked.
“Piper,” Jason said. “You know you’re not supposed to do that! You promised!” He was smiling too.
Piper showed him the edge of her hair. It was singed .“He’s not suppose to burn four inches of my hair is he? Don’t worry it will wear off soon.”
As Jason watched, Piper’s hair glowed pink and went back to its original form. It’s a good thing she’s the daughter of Aphrodite, otherwise she would look like a monkey cut her hair. They both went down to the bottom of the ship. Annabeth was there, hanging from the ceiling with a bungee cord looking down through the glass bottom.
“Looking for Percy?”Piper asked. As Jason helped her get strapped in, after her, he just flew next to them. Yeah, he can fly (being the son of Zeus and all)
Annabeth pointed down at a crowd of Romans staring up at them. Mrs. O’Leary was running around and barking up at them. Hannibal was playing tag with her. Many Romans gave them a wide berth so not to get trampled.
In the months Jason spent at Camp Half Blood, he had heard alot about this Percy character. He had defeated Kronos/Saturn last summer while Jason stormed the Titan’s headquarters on Mount Tam. Percy had returned his father’s master bolt the first year he had come to Camp Half Blood. All in all, Jason was no match for him.
The boat lurched forward. Annabeth and Piper swing from their cords.
“Welcome to Camp Jupiter everyone!” Leo said on the speakers. “Don’t you just love rainbows? They light up the sky after rain.”
Annabeth smiled, “What’s up with him?”
Piper burst laughing, “That’s what you get for burning my hair?”
Jason helped Piper down. “Need help?” he asked Annabeth.
“No thanks.” She pulled on the cord and unlocked her belt. She swung to the ladder, landing on it perfectly. She didn’t need flying powers.
Up on deck Annabeth ducked into her room and Piper removed the spell on Leo.
“Romanssss! Greeeksss! Flo—“Leo blinked. “What just happened?”
“Nothing much.” Piper said. “Just don’t mess with me again.”
Jason, Leo, Piper and Annabeth leaned over the side of the Argo II. After eight months...
Piper gasped, “Were here.”
