Annabeth walked up to the karaoke machine. She didn't look at all nervous. It's not like I'd ever heard her sing or anything, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The music started.

"I don't think that passenger seat
Has ever looked this good to me
He tells me about his night
I count the colors in his eyes.

He'll never fall in love he swears
As he runs his fingers through his hair
I'm laughing 'cause I hope he's wrong
And I don't think it ever crossed his mind
He tells a joke, I fake a smile
But I know all his favorite songs

And I could tell you, his favorite color's green
He loves to argue, born on the eighteenth
His mother's beautiful, he has his father's eyes
And if you asked me if I love him, I'd lie

He looks around the room
Innocently overlooks the truth
Shouldn't a light a go on?
Doesn't he know that I've had him memorized for so long?

He sees everything in black and white
Never let nobody see him cry
I don't let nobody see me wishing he was mine

I could tell you, his favorite color's green
He loves to argue, born on the eighteenth
His mother's beautiful, he has his father's eyes
And if you asked me if I love him, I'd lie

He stands there then walks away
My gods, if I could only say:
'I'm holding every breath for you."

He'd never tell you, but he can play guitar
I think he can see through everything but my heart
First thought when I wake up is 'My gods he's beautiful,'
So I put on my blond hair up, and pray for a miracle

Yes, I could tell you, his favorite color's green
He loves to argue, oh and it kills me
His mother's beautiful, he has his father's eyes
And if you asked me if I love him,
If you asked me if I love him,
I'd lie."

Everyone's jaw was dropped, and I had a feeling mine was the lowest. It was probably because I was in love with her, but I would say Annabeth had the voice of an angel. The song sounded exactly like...exactly like me. I did't think some of the lyrics were the real ones, but I didn't care. I was staring. Again, Annabeth's eyes never left mine the entire song. She came and took her seat back next to me. I smiled at her.

"So Annabeth," Thalia said, smiling. "Was everything you just sang true? Swear on the River Styx."

Annabeth looked at her for a moment before saying, "I swear on the River Styx that if you asked me if I loved Percy, I'd lie, and that I could tell you all those things."

Silena was practically bursting. Beckendorf was smiling at me hugely, as was Grover. Nico was staring at Thalia. Clarrise was scowling at me, like usual.

"Okay then. Annabeth, do you love Percy?" Thalia asked.

My heart was pounding right out of my chest. I looked at Annabeth. She looked at me. Then she looked back at Thalia, looking her right in the eye. "No. No I don't." She was smiling wider than the distance was between the top of the St. Louis Arch and the Mississippi River. Trust me, I know. Then, she kissed me. When we broke apart, we were holding hands.

"Finally!" Grover said. "My head was about to burst from your excitement, Percy!"

Silena let out a squeal. Beckendorf said, "Alright, Percy!", and Nico was smiling and nodded at me.

Just then, Paul and my mom walked through the door. They were laughing. They saw everyone's attention on Annabeth and I, and my mother smiled even wider.

Thalia was glancing around at everyone's expressions. She got to Nico and she stopped, and she looked like she entered the same trance he was in. Jeez, this was weird...They're cousins! I gave Nico an encouraging nod. He said, "Hey Thalia, can I talk to you for a minute?" She nodded and he led her to the guest room. We heard the door close and everyone started talking at once: "When did this happen?" "Way to go!" "You two were meant to be." (Silena) and a "My plan worked!" from Paul. I told Clarrise about our walk (She asked about the when).

Nico and Thalia came back in the room looking extremely pleased. I whispered to Nico, "Tell me about it later." I looked at Annabeth and she was leaning back from Thalia. I'm guessing she said the same thing. I smlied. Aphrodite was probably going insane right now.


After almost everyone left, it was just me, my mom, Paul and Annabeth. We started talking, and apparently Paul had taken my mom to a nice dinner. We told them about our eventful evening, and about our karaoke night. Soon Paul went home, and my mom went to bed. I told her we'd be going for a walk. I led Annabeth downstairs and to Central Park again.

She sighed. "Percy, why are we here?"

I shrugged. "I dunno."

Annabeth rolled her eyes at me. "Of course you don't, Seaweed Brain."

"I'm serious! I just felt the urge-" I stopped. In front of us were who else but Poseidon and Athena.

"Come, Percy." my father said to me. Athena nodded to Annabeth. We walked in silence for a while until I said, "Are you mad?"

Poseidon sighed and turned to face me. "No, son, I am not. Athena is much more upset about this then I am. In fact, I approve."

I felt my jaw drop. "B-but...I-I thought..." I stuttered.

My dad smiled his sun-crinkly-eyes smile at me. "Percy, just because Athena is...a bit brash toward my children doesn't mean I hate hers. I have helped Annabeth more than you are aware of."

I thought for a minute. "Westover Hall?" I guessed.

Poseidon nodded. "There was indeed ocean there, but there was a portal. I helped her survive the landing, which gave her more energy to hold the sky. She would've been long since dead."

I mulled that over. When I looked back, my dad was gone and Athena was in his place. I bowed. "Lady Athena."

"Percy Jackson. I told you at that winter council meeting that I did not approve of your friendship with my daughter. I just talked to her. She defended you with all she had, which I must admit was a lot." She looked at me with a new interest, as if I were a new creature she'd never seen before. "You have my permission."

I stared at her. I didn't say 'For what?', partly because her prescense was making me wiser, partly because I didn't want to seem stupid. I just said, "Thank you."

Athena disappeared, but I could still hear her say, "But if you hurt her, Perseus, you will have made your worst enemy yet."

I stopped and realized I had walked in a complete circle. I walked over to Annabeth. "What happened with you?" I asked. She told me her mother had given her permission, and that my father had told her he approved of her. I told her what happened to me, but I left out the last thing Athena said. It bothered me a little, though I wasn't sure why. I walked her over to the fountain we were at earlier. We sat there for a while just staring into each other's eyes. I leaned forward slowly. This was our best kiss yet, by far. Unlike the one in Mount St. Helens, it wasn't a goodbye. It was a hello to a new start.

"Annabeth, I need you to promise me one thing," I said, after we broke apart.

She eyed me. "Okay."

"This is serious. And hard to say." I gulped. "If...something...happens this summer...something happens to me, I want you to...to try and move on. Don't forget, but...move on." I was choking up.

Annabeth had tears in her eyes. "Don't talk like that, Percy. Whatever happens, I love you and no one else. But I promise. Now I need you to promise me something."


"Promise me you'll make it out of the war alive. Because if you don't, I won't be able to go on living."

I had to blink back tears, but I was still misty-eyed. I gave Annabbeth a big hug, and said, "I don't promise. I swear on the River Styx." Thunder boomed. I leaned out and back in, and gave her another kiss. "C'mon," I said. "We should get back." But I didn't get up. I just sat there with Annabeth in my arms. We stayed like that for at least a half hour.

I finally got up. "You can sleep in my room tonight. I'll sleep on the couch. We'll get you a plane ticket home in the morning." I gave her my hand and she took it. I knew a lot was going to change this summer. But at least I had Annabeth. And I wouldn't have her without that karaoke night.

Well, that's it! Kind of sad, I know, but there was enough Percabeth, right? I told you this chapter was gonna be longer! R&R! Keep a lookout for my other works, including Annabeth's Birthday and Through Her Eyes, which are both in progress. So that's it! The end! Fin! Good night everybody! *Bows, audience claps* =P Goodbye!
