Annabeth let go of my hands and looked into my eyes before saying, "Thanks for understanding."
I nodded and watched her run back to her cabin.
And that was pretty much the last time I saw her for a while.
Rebirth: Chapter I
Annabeth left the next day. She took everything with her. What was she trying to leave behind? Memories of the war? Me?
I was itching to Iris Message her, just to see how she was doing, but I didn't want to risk IMing her when she was around mortals. Knowing Annabeth, she'd probably work extra hours. Knowing my luck, I'd IM her while she was having a heated "discussion" with a co-worker. Who knows what they would see?
So I waited for her to contact me.
I waited for a week and a half before she Iris Messaged me.
Finally, early one morning, a voice that sounded strangely familiar woke me.
"PERCY JACKSON," the voice screamed, "I'M IN A HURRY SO WAKE UP."
I jumped up from my bed and uncapped Riptide. I looked straight at a blonde-haired, grey-eyed girl, who looked pretty startled herself. I blushed and collapsed onto my bed when I realized that it was only Annabeth, IMing from Greece, and I looked completely ridiculous.
"Good morning," Annabeth said cheerily.
"Hey," I said, still groggy (I'm not really a morning person).
"Sorry I haven't called you sooner," Annabeth said, "I was really busy"
"It's fine," I replied, rubbing my eye.
She continued to babble about her job and said some architectural stuff that I didn't really understand and showed me some paperwork. She seemed really psyched about her job, and that made me happy, but at the same time, I was a little jealous that a job was rivaling for her attention.
"Oops," she said, "I gotta go. My boss isn't going to be happy if I show up late."
"Yeah," I replied reluctantly, "I'd better get going to breakfast…I-"
She ended the message before I could finish what I was saying.
I sighed and pushed the heavy door to my cabin open, trying to brace myself for what I would see. Every morning, I saw the same thing, but it still brought back so many overwhelming memories.
Without any one to talk to, breakfast went by pretty quickly. To tell you about one of my typical days at camp, I only need to say a few words: Wake, dress, eat, train, eat, train, eat, and sleep. And then, the cycle starts over again. There wasn't much to do at camp, if you haven't noticed. The war was over, and there hadn't been any attacks. We weren't allowed to play capture the flag, because we barely had any supplies left and Chiron didn't want any more wounded campers. Anyway, even if we WERE allowed to play, half the campers were gone and more were leaving each day.
Annabeth was in Greece replicating the. Grover was busy with his job as Lord of the Wild. Thaila was traveling with the hunters. Nico was always in the Underworld doing something, yet he never said a word about his dad. Like I said earlier, us demi-gods hadn't heard from our parents in almost a year. I don't think they even LISTENED to our prayers. Nico was the only kid who still was in contact with his godly parent.
Weeks without Annabeth turned into months without Annabeth. She and I drifted farther and farther apart. She barely IMed me anymore, and when she did, It was hurried and brief. Also, we never really talked about us. She just talked about her job and her life and how everything was going just wonderfully.
Camp became kind of boring after a while. All my closest friends either left, died or were preoccupied. Part of me wanted to leave, but the other, smarter, half knew I had to stay in case there was an attack. We couldn't be sure that Gaea was completely asleep. A powerful being doesn't go back to rest without putting up a last fight.
Just when I thought I would go crazy of boredom, something made my life pretty interesting.
