Percy total 'Unsure' Face
Annabeth had lay in the hospital bed wearily holding her and Percy's new born baby. She smiled as she looked at the small child in her arms gently.
Percy paced nervously in the waiting room his stomach felt like it was tied in knots he felt dizzy but he felt the urge to pace, his friends and family were there waiting for the news his hands were shaking and Nico spoke up, "Percy...chill dude your over reacting..your gonna make yourself sick" Percy took a deep breath letting it out slowly as he replied, "sorry...i'm just nervous...its a new experience for me..." he cut himself off as the doctor came out smiling as she spoke, "Come on, someone wants to see you" Percy nodded feeling relaxed as they walked down to the hospital room as he entered he smiled and said softly, "hey.."
"hi" Annabeth said smiling. "Come on over" she said in a soft voice. She was still holding the baby in her arms. She looked up at him once again.
Percy smiled approaching and sitting gently on the edge of the bed asking softly, :is it a he or she?" he put his arm around Annabeth's shoulder looking down at there new born child.
"It's a boy" she said smiling towards Percy once again. "Here you can hold him if you want" she told him softly.
"I'll pass for now...your know my luck" he chuckled, "He's gonna grow up to be a normal child, none of this Demigod stuff...I don't want it to be in his life, and it should be normal sense the gods passed the Pact that Gods may be in contact with there children and visit, heh...i think its gonna be a competition between my father and your mother.." Percy chuckled smiling warmly.
"So...thought of any names yet?" she asked Percy looking back up.
"Not really...i think its up to you...heh...if i name him you know where i'll go with it, Percy Chase Jackson" Percy said laughing abit, "but i'm serious thats what i would name him.."
She laughed a bit as well. "How does Nathaniel Chase Jackson 'Nathan' for short" Annabeth said.
Percy smiled, "that sounds good" he looked down at Nathan, "Welcome to the family Nate, you got a big world to see" He felt at ease.
*(Whoo, Time bump O^O ) 4 years later thru thy time hole; Percy and Annabeth are both 26; Nathan is 4**
Percy came home from picking up Nathan from school though it wasn't for a good reason, more like Nathan was being sent home for bad behavior, Percy pulled into the driveway and honked the the horn three times waiting for Annabeth, he was impatient as he had to take a break at work for this and he had to be back in 15 minutes.
Annabeth walked outside. "He misbehaved again?" she said asking him while looking at Percy.
"Yeah...just bring him inside....i need to go i am on break and i got 15 minutes to get back to work or i'm fired......" Percy said throwing the Audi in reverse and backing out of the driveway quickly throwing it back in drive and peeling out burning some rubber as he took off down the road back toward work, Nathan looked up at his mother then quietly back down at the ground, "Daddy is mad at me...you are to aren't you"
Annabeth looked at him. "Yes...I am. Nathan why are you bad in school" annabeth asked Nathan in a worn out tone.
"These boys were pushing me...so i hit them....it wasn't fair...they didn't get in any trouble....it wasn't fair.." Nathan said crossing his arms pouting, "Why was daddy so mad...."
"You need to tell your teacher if that happens" she said. 'Daddy was mad because he got taken out of work to pick you up"
"So...he can always just go back" Nathan said still pouting, Percy called annabeth, he was about to break down as he flew down the highway back towards the house.
Annabeth answered the phone, "Hey Percy" she said while still trying to calm nathan down.
"Hey....guess who just got fired....me...the fifth job this month....i can't take much more of this..." Percy said fighting back from just breaking down and crying for the only 5th time in his life as he drove fast to get home.
Annabeth looked down and gave a sigh. "I know...You must be really upset" she said.
"Yea...i'm about to just breakdown and lose my mind...i'm done with this changing jobs...." he sighed shakily, hanging up as he pulled into the drive way and into the garage parking and killing the engine just sitting there in the silence noting the darkening skyline.
After Annabeth had calmed nathan down by putting the TV on for him she went outside and sat on the porch yawning a bit before leaning against the wall of the outside of the house.
Percy came out of the garage walking onto the porch finishing a phone call with his mom, "I know mom...i tried okay...he fired me because i was 15 seconds late...I have no money because i didn't make my frist pay check mom...i don't want to do..." Percy was near tears his hair a mess.
Annabeth noticed Percy as he walked onto the porch although seeing him walking on the porch she remained silent.
"Mom...i know...i am thinking for Nathan's sake...alright... yea....I'll talk to you soon..." Percy hung up and threw his phone as hard as he could at the driveway watching it smash he felt the hot tears run down his face as he stormed off the porch walking across the road and into the woods trying to escape the emotional siege on him.
Annabeth went inside picking up Nathan before running after Percy. "Percy! Percy!" she said while trying to catch up to him. After about five minutes she finally found Percy. "Percy...there you are" she said in a soft,gentle voice.
Percy remained quiet his eyes were red from crying he had a head ache, his stomach felt like it had been kicked, he felt nauseous and he all around just wanted to die.
Annabeth hugged Percy knowing that he was going through a hard time. "Percy...it's alright we can make it through this" she said. She knew that right now he had a low self confidence.
"Annabeth...I'm out of a job...we have no money to get us by....and my mom can't help us out because she's in Florida....i don't know what to do..alright...i screwed up..." Percy said taking a shaky breath, " unless my dad visits theres no way we'll make it through this month on the money we have.."
Annabeth looked down. "We'll do whatever we can... the good thing is my interview is tomorrow so we still have a chance" she said still hugging Percy.
"A chance...a interview can god either way...good or bad...i can't take anymore of this bad new shit okay...it's not helping me at all...i'm tired of getting a job and loosing it within a month...its emotionally stressful...its bad enough that we have a debt that we have to pay because we had to see that physician about Nathan's bed wetting problem,..." Percy said willing the water on the sea side to clash into the beach said harshly.
Annabeth sighed, "I know about the debt Percy...we still have to go on and see what the future does for us" she told him
"The future? Annabeth with the route we are going we'll be out on our asses in less than a month...we'll be lucky to be able to pay the mortgage on the house this month!...Let alone the next month, and the month after that...You see that house...we don't own it till its paid off..so at anytime they could just throw us out and Sell it out to another family...and that Audi that you bought...a waste of 45,000$ it eats gas like its a joke...annabeth...we have nothing to do..our best bet would be to crash at camp for the time being...till we can straighten this out...We can have your father watch Nathan, and we can stay at camp for aslong as we need..." Percy said sighing, "It seems the only option we really have right now.."
Annabeth sighed before saying,"your right Percy... that is the only option...lets get back to the house and we can call my dad so that he can come get Nathan" she said starting to walk back towards their house silently with Nathan. "I'll get all of our stuff together... come back when your ready..." she said.
"Alright..." Percy replied just watching the waves from the ocean trying to set his mind at ease before beginning the walk back to the house.
At the Home with the Baby, Annabeth, and Percy (So adorable)
