DISCLAIMER: I am once again reminded that I, unfortunately, do not own the Percy Jackson series. :(

ANOTHER DISCLAIMER: The song "Fallin' For You" belongs to Colbie Caillat. (Me no own.)


I don't know but
I think I maybe
Fallin' for you

I don't know how you did it. I love Luke, or at least I think I do. But you; you're different than him. Better? Maybe. I don't know. I feel so confused.

Dropping so quickly
Maybe I should
Keep this to myself
Waiting 'til I
Know you better

I barely know you, Percy. How could I be falling for you already? Then again, we have been through a lot. We've been to the Underworld and back together, and I've only known you for a few weeks. Already, I find myself praying that you're the one from the Prophecy. The idea that you might not live to see your sixteenth birthday…. I don't know you very well, but I can't imagine what I'd do if anything happened to you.

I am trying
Not to tell you
But I want to
I'm scared of what you'll say

You'll think it's creepy, won't you? That I might already be in love with you when I've practically just met you? You won't laugh at me; I know you're too kind to do that. But it doesn't matter how gently you put it. Rejection still hurts. And I'm still confused.

So I'm hiding what I'm feeling
But I'm tired of
Holding this inside my head

I'm getting a headache just thinking about all this. It would be so much easier if I could just tell you. But I can't. At least, not yet.

I've been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don't know where to
I think I'm fallin' for you

How is it that in only a few weeks, you've managed to work your way into every thought I have? I can't look at water without thinking about you. Whenever anyone mentions a prophecy or Minotaur or even a casino, you're the first thing that comes to mind. Sometimes I just think about how you act kind of weird around me sometimes, and I wonder if you like me too, or if it's just wishful thinking.

I've been waiting all my life
And now I found ya
I don't know where to
I think I'm fallin' for you
I'm fallin' for you

I know, I'm young, I haven't really been waiting that long. But the longer I know you, the more I think you might be… the one. But I love Luke, I think. So how can I love two boys at the same time?

As I'm standing here
And you hold my hand
Pull me towards you
And we start to dance

The gods' music is playing, and you ask me to dance. I think you're hearing a slow-dance. I'm hearing this song. Story of my life right now. But I like dancing with you. Something about it just feels right.

All around us
I see nobody
Here in silence
It's just you and me

Ugh, I wish. I wish I could make it all fade away, so it was just us. So I would have some time alone with you to sort out my feelings. Unfortunately, I'm painfully aware of my mother's presence just across the room. I can feel her watching us.

I'm trying
Not to tell you
But I want to
I'm scared of what you'll say
So I'm hiding what I'm feeling
But I'm tired of
Holding this inside my head

I've been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don't know where to
I think I'm fallin' for you
I've been waiting all my life
and now I found ya
I don't know where to
I think I'm fallin' for you
I'm fallin' for you

The song ends, and things get a bit awkward as we try to decide whether we should keep dancing or not.

Oh I just can't take it
My heart is racing
The emotions keep spinning out

Why do I have to feel all of this? I hate you for making me love you. Wait; did I just think that? I— I love you? No, I didn't think that. I couldn't have. I'm— I'm still confused! I don't know how I feel about you.

I've been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don't know where to
I think I'm fallin' for you
I've been waiting all my life
and now I found ya
I don't know where to
I think I'm fallin' for you
I'm fallin' for you
I think I'm fallin' for you

Oh, would you just get out of my thoughts, Percy? I can't stand thinking about you every minute without being able to tell you how I feel. I don't even know how I feel. Ugh, I'm so messed up.

I can't stop thinking about it
I want you all around me
And now I just can't hide it
I think I'm fallin' for you

I can't stop thinking about it
I want you all around me
And now I just can't hide it
I think I'm fallin' for you

All right, fine. I'll admit it.

I'm fallin' for you

But what am I supposed to do about it? I love you, but I love Luke too. And I loved him first. All right, I'm a daughter of Athena. I'm supposed to be smart. I can figure this out, no problem.

Ooohhh
Oh no no
Oooooohhh
Oh I'm fallin' for you

This might be harder than I thought.


If you had any thoughts on this fic at all, I'd love to hear them! Flames don't bother me: I use them to roast marshmallows! :)
