Percy and Blackjack were flying for about 10 minutes when he heard someone shouting his name back at the camp. He scanned the beach and saw a blonde head running along the water.
"Blackjack, take me back to the beach." Percy said.
On it, boss. We'll be there faster than you can say "Blackjack is awesome".
Blackjack flew Percy back to the beach an set him down, gave him a wink and flew back to the stables.
"Annabeth?" Percy yelled out.
"Oh, hey Percy." Annabeth said, patting down her hair.
They stared at each other for a moment. "I need to tell you something." They both blurted out.
"You first." Percy said.
"No, you." Annabeth said, blushing.
"No, seriously, you go first." Percy said.
"JUST SAY IT SEAWEED BRAIN!" Annabeth yelled.
"Oh, well, um, I kinda need your help with something." Percy stuttered out.
"Okay. Out with it." Annabeth said.
"Okay. There's this girl...and I kinda need to tell her something, something important. But the problem is, I don't know how to tell her." Percy said, his face turning extremely red.
Annabeth wanted to cry and scream and hit him all at the same time. He was asking her advice on how to tell a girl, a girl that is not her, something important. She couldn't help but crumble into pieces. She could not answer him this.
"Figure it out on your own!" she yelled at him before turning around and running, tears streaming down her face.
Percy was momentarily stunned before he realized what she must be thinking. He was not going to let her get away, not again. He willed the water to funnel around Annabeth, not allowing her to move.
"PERCY! LET ME OUT OF HERE!" Annabeth yelled, her voice laced with tears.
"No. Not until you calm down and hear me out." Percy told her in a calm voice.
"Fine. Just get me out of this water funnel." She said.
The water dropped back into the sea and there stood a rather angry Annabeth. "What was that for?"
"I wasn't about to let you run away again." Percy said.
"Why do you care?" Annabeth asked.
Percy just sighed and looked up at Annabeth through his hair, his sea green eyes boring into her gray ones. "Annabeth, why would you even ask that? I care about you a lot."
"Yeah, but not as much as your secret girl you need my help with." She muttered.
Percy laughed. "Annabeth. That secret girl I needed help with is, well, you."
Annabeth was lost for words. She pinched herself to make sure she wasn't dreaming. Nope, she was awake. "Percy, are you saying what I think you're saying?"
Percy smiled the smile that usually took Annabeth's breath away. "Yes. Yes, I am. I like you, a lot Annabeth."
Annabeth blushed a deep red. "I like you too, Percy."
Percy took one step towards her. "How much?"
She smiled. "This much." She stepped up to Percy and kissed him. She noticed he wasn't returning it, so she started to pull away. When Percy got control of his body again, he wrapped his arms around her waist and returned the kiss. She smiled and laced her arms around his neck and weaved them into his hair. He shivered. They continued to kiss until Annabeth got a bit to excited and leaned further into him, causing Percy to tumble backwards into the water, with her still with him. Percy could still breathe fine, but Annabeth was gasping for air. Percy put an air bubble around them and Annabeth took a deep breath in.
She blushed, realizing that she caused them to fall. "Sorry."
"Not a problem. I prefer the water anyways." Percy said, smiling.
She just smiled and and hugged herself closer to him.
"Um, Percy?" Annabeth said into Percy's shoulder.
"Yeah?" he asked.
"I kinda like you a little bit more than like." Annabeth said.
Percy pulled back and looked at her with a confused expression. "What?"
Annabeth took a deep breath in and out. Time to tell him. "I love you, Percy."
Percy took in that information and smiled. "Annabeth, that's good. Cuz I think I love you too."
Annabeth smiled right with him. "Think, Seaweed Brain?"
"Well, I am a Seaweed Brain after all. And a teenage boy." He said.
"I'll agree with that argument." Annabeth smiled.
"Do you want to resurface?" Percy asked.
"No. Can we stay down here for a bit longer? Its peaceful." Annabeth said.
"Anything you want, m'lady." Percy said, smiling.
Annabeth smacked him. "Don't call me that."
"Fine, Wise Girl." He said.
"Oh, just shut up and kiss me Seaweed Brain." She said.
"A bit bossy, aren't we?" Percy teased, but kissed her anyways.
And up in Olympus, everybody was clapping for the young demigods. The gods and goddesses who liked Percy and Annabeth were so happy; the ones who didn't like them just stayed quite. The only 2 gods who were still sitting in their chair, smiling smugly were Aphrodite and Apollo; they both knew how it was going to end. They shared a knowing look and laughed. Everything, for now, was right as it was.
