Thanks for the reviews, story alerts, author alerts, and favorites! I like the ideas that I got of what Percy should be a god of, thanks for those too! First: I really need more reviews! Even if you just write 'Good story!' it would make my day. Thank you, and if I don't post, that means I'm in a Writer's Block.
Also, for some reason the chapter I most planned out is giving me a hard time to write. Sorry for the delay and Percy's godly powers will be announced soon!
Disclaimer: Don't own Percy Jackson and the Olympians. I own my imagination.
Then I thought of it. I would visit Calypso.
I've been around a lot of Aphrodite's daughters, and they would smack me and give me a lecture about going to a girl's place that loves me, talking about my problems with another girl. But I couldn't think of anyone else to go to.
It would make sense to go to Aphrodite herself, but she would set me up on dates with her daughters, and that was defiantly not an option. Not that I had anything against her daughters, just, you know, Annabeth.
Annabeth; I wonder what she was doing. Maybe crying, or locking herself in the cabin. I truly felt sorry for what I did, but it was for the best. It was what her mother wanted. Sometimes I wish I didn't do what she said, but she scared me.
Gods, I wish when I became a god the ADHD would go away.
I stood there for a few more moments, just staring at the campers until I snapped back into reality.
I thought of Calypso, the plants, the cave with the different colored crystals and all of the homey items and meadow, and even that gurgling fountain I heard when I first arrived on her island. Then WHOOSH! I was back on her island.
I heard the familiar gurgle of the fountain and the scent of the plants. I saw Calypso staring at me, her caramel-color hair braided over one shoulder like the first time I saw her.
"Percy?" she murmured. "Is that really you? How is this possible?"
She ran over to me and gave me a hug. I hugged her back then motioned for her to sit down on the sand.
I told her what had happened since the last time I saw her. She looked at me in awe and congratulated me on winning the second war against the Titans. I didn't tell her about Annabeth yet when she leaned closer to me, trying to kiss me.
I leaned back a little and said, "Just friends."
She looked up at me, embarrassed, and teased, "As you wish Lord Perseus."
I frowned and groaned at the name. It's bad enough campers call me that, and now Calypso teases me. I probably shouldn't have told her that I hated the name. Yeah that would have been smart Percy.
She asked if I wanted something to eat, of course I accepted, I hadn't ate anything in a while. Even though gods could survive without food, I still felt like I needed something to eat. She motioned for me to follow her towards the cave that reminded me of the first time I was at Ogygia.
I sat down at the table while Calypso brought out some strawberry cheesecake. I wondered where she got the cheesecake; probably Hermes gave it to her when he was visiting. She set the cake down and we started eating, making small talk.
"Percy," she murmured. "I know there is another reason that you came here besides visiting me."
I stared at her, thinking of what to say. "Uh, how did you—"
I didn't get to continue when Calypso said, "Your eyes."
"My eyes," I said dumbly. "My eyes, that's strange."
"Your eyes show me that you are missing someone," Calypso explained. I nodded, suddenly fascinated at what my eyes shown. Wow, that sounded really weird, I thought.
"Well," I started. "I don't want to talk about if you're not comfortable with it." I stared down at the nectar that Calypso had set on the table.
She gave me a small smile and said, "It's okay. I'm all ears."
I told her about Annabeth, the things that happened between us, everything up until now. From the corner of my eye, I could see Calypso holding back some tears and smiling.
"That is a beautiful, but sad love story." Calypso commented. I stared at her. How was it beautiful? It seemed ordinary to me, besides the saving the other from monsters. Then again, I'm a guy.
"Come," she said grabbing my hand, "I want to show you my garden."
Calypso led me out of the cave and into her garden. I have to say, it is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Every flower I could think of was here, from sunflowers, roses, tulips and even moonlace. The aroma was nothing like I had ever smelled before.
"It's beautiful," I murmured.
"Thank you, I worked hard on this garden."
"I can tell."
"Did you ever plant the moonlace I gave you?"
"Yeah, it's near my apartment. I bet my mom is working on it, she needs something to do."
Calypso smiled and said, "At least you planted it. Some people might have thrown it away, but you're different."
"What time is it?" I sudenly asked. I hope that I wasn't in Ogygia for too long.
"I don't know. Time runs differently on Ogygia, remember?"
"Right. I don't want my dad to be waiting, you know? So, I think I'll just go."
"Alright, but promise me one thing." She took my hand, and said, "Come back."
"I will," I promised. Calypso smiled.
I walked to the beach, with Calypso following right behind me.
"You'll visit right?" Calypso asked for the second time today.
"Yeah, like I said I'll visit whenever I can."
Then she did something completely surprising, she kissed me on the cheek. I stood there like an idiot until I could finally get some words out of my mouth.
"Uh, well, I should go."
"Farewell Lord Perseus," Calypso murmured, a smile forming at the corner of her mouth. I waved goodbye, and she waved back, the wind blowing through her hair.
I thought of my father's palace and WHOOSH! I was standing in the middle of the courtyard.
Well this is all I could muster up for the chapter. Kind of sappy? I have to admit that. Anyways, review? Thanks and here's a spoiler of the next chapter: "You can see him when you are working on his temple."
I love reviews more than Tyson loves peanut butter!
