The Mark of Athena: My Version
I'm not too good but I couldn't resist adding one of my own versions of the Mark of Athena . Rated T to be safe. I hope it's okay! Review please! XD
DISCLAIMER: I do not own the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series OR the Heroes of Olympus series.
We were having a conference up on deck, personally, Annabeth couldn't care less. All she wanted to see was her Percy one more time. Piper was looking at her with concern. Annabeth figured that after searching for her lost boyfriend, the hero of Olympus, for eight months, she was entitled to freak out some. Annabeth zoned back into the conversation happening in front of her.
"If he doesn't remember us-" Jason pointed out but was then cut off by an angry Annabeth
"He will!" Annabeth said forcefully and as if to prove her point, once more at the sky. She took a deep breath. She could handle this.
"Sorry Jason, keep going." She could do this. She wouldn't break down. Ugh, this was so embarrassing for a daughter of Athena.
Jason continued, "If he doesn't remember us, we need to know how to stop him."
Everyone let that happy thought sink in.
"He HAS to remember us!" Leo our glorious 'Supreme Commander' rushed, "'Cus isn't he, like, invincible?"
"Yeah," Annabeth remembered, "He said when he came out of the Styx he fought Hades and a whole army of his skeleton warriors single handed and won."
They all stared at her like she was crazy, which, unfortunately, happened a lot with Percy gone.
"Uh...like…WOW!" Leo stuttered.
Piper glared at him (she seems to do that a lot), "Thank you for that intelligent comment, Repair Boy, now go back to sleep."
"Whoa! Not cool!" Leo exclaimed, "Remember! I'm the THE Supreme Commander of the Argo Two, but, since you're my friends, you can call me Supreme Commander."
"Okay Repair Boy," Piper said sarcastically. She unsheathed her dagger and chased him out of sight.
Jason and Annabeth stifled laughs. Jason stared at her.
"What?" she questioned?
"I've never heard you laugh before." Jason said.
"Seriously Annabeth," Jason repeated, "I need to know where he's vulnerable. He is a danger if he doesn't cooperate!"
"You're making this like a military attack!" Annabeth shouted then turned to a whisper, "He's one of us!" Truth be told, she was trying to convince herself just as much as Jason. Sometimes he's a danger when he does remember she thought.
"Yo guys and dudetts!" Leo's garbled voice came over the loudspeaker. "We're here! Thank you for flying Air Argo!
"His vulnerability…its right," Annabeth said slowly, turning her attention back to Jason, "right he-"
Then, suddenly, they started to fall. Annabeth was glad. She couldn't betray Percy by telling Jason. She was confused. Would she have if the Argo 2 didn't start to crash? Would she have told him? Focus. Uh oh, the ground looked much harder now.
Annabeth thought it would be a good time for some brilliant tactics, "AHHHH!" she screamed, really worthy of Athena.
She started to yell commands, "Jason! Try to keep the ship aloft! Piper! Try to charm speak Blackjack into helping! Piper's voice replied over the PA system, "How is he so post to help?" Annabeth replied, "Just figure something out, kind of in the middle of a crisis! Leo! Get your butt down here! We need you to repair the engine. Leo? Where are you?" He picked a great time to disappear, "Start repairing Repair Boy!"
The falling boat/plane/A.T.V./Spankin'HotWarMachine was still too much for all of them. Piper got knocked over and Jason rushed over to help her. Two down. As soon as Annabeth saw the buildings which, FYI, had beautiful architecture, their chances of survival were looking slim. At the eleventh hour (A/N it's just a saying, don't worry about it if you don't get it) the boat/plane/A.T.V./Spankin'HotWarMachine slowed down and gently touched the Earth.
Annabeth looked over the railing and saw 50 roman soldiers staring daggers at the Greek ship. Jason and Piper got up and Leo came out from the control room. Yay. He reappeared now. What could he have been doing?
Jason asked, "Leo, are there any stairs on this thing?"
"I'm on it!" he replied.
Leo pushed some buttons while humming Justin Beiber's 'Baby' (Disclaimer: I do not own this song).Go figure. The side of the Argo slowly morphed into a giant staircase. Piper looked at Leo with an eyebrow raised.
"Hey, I figured if we had to go, we should go in style!" Leo joked.
She almost ran out before the stairs had completely finished changing. She could feel her heart beating loudly, Annabeth wouldn't be surprised if Percy could hear it. I'm coming, she thought. She was jolted out of her contemplations when Leo jumped out of the boat and started to rant, "Uh, hey Romans! We would appreciate it if you didn't kill/maim/injure or harm us in any way."
Annabeth had to admit that was the bravest or stupidest things she had ever seen. That's the way Percy was too. That's it. She couldn't wait any longer. She stepped out, followed by Piper and Jason. In her opinion, they had become a little more than friends. If Jason had an old girlfriend, things could get ugly. Searching the crowd, she looked for a guy with messy black hair and beautiful green eyes that reflected all his emotions. To her dismay, no such person was to be found. A sob escaped her. Annabeth couldn't cry or she feared she might break and crack into a million pieces.
A girl in a purple cape stepped forward, "Romans! Do not attack until I give the order!"
This was going to be harder than she thought. She had to find Percy! Annabeth didn't have time to listen to all the formalities!
Piper must have guessed who Annabeth was thinking of and said in a clear, powerful voice, "Has anyone seen a guy called Percy Jackson?"
The purple girl faltered, "Percy? Hazel! Frank! Have you seen Percy?"
A young girl and a, uh, baby faced Chinese guy separated from the crowd.
"No, we haven't Reyna," the girl said worriedly, "He might still be by the Little Tiber, after all, he did help land the ship. He might be tired."
Everyone there who didn't know Percy where shocked. Then, the girl called Reyna finally noticed Jason. She ran up and hugged him. Piper went red.
Reyna made another speech to her troops, "The Greek's do not mean harm."
Jason added, "As your prae-"
The girl who Annabeth thought was Hazel said, "Well, you were gone a long time and well the Feast of Fortuna already passed so…"
"Don't tell me Octavian is Praetor!" Jason said worriedly. Everyone seemed to grimace at the name 'Octavian'. It didn't look like he was too popular.
"No," Hazel responded, "It's Percy."
"Come on! We don't have time for this!" Annabeth yelled franticly, "We have to find him!"
"Okay!" Leo cut in, "I thought Piper was the Drama Queen."
"LEO!" both Annabeth and Piper shouted in unison. Annabeth and Piper made eye contact. They would deal with him later.
They took a path down to a river. This was probably the Little Tiber.
Reyna said urgently, "There he is!"
Annabeth could barely breathe. There he was. After eight months of searching for him, she still didn't know what to do. He was looking into the river and hadn't noticed them approach.
"P-p-p-Percy?" she stuttered.
He turned around startled. His beautiful eyes radiated pure power. It disappeared when his gaze met hers.
"Hey, long time no-see!" he mumbled. For the first time she noticed how tired he looked. Percy smiled at her, and then fell into the churning currents of the deadly river.
