Oh. My. Gods. How did you guys put up with the original version of this chapter. My Grammar was HORRIBLE. Wow. Well...im fixing it.
I woke up this morning feeling like crap. I hadn't been able to get to sleep at all. I tossed and turned but to no avail. At least my half brother Tyson wasn't there to hear me, the whole camp was gone on a week long field trip. Except me and Annabeth, we volunteered to stay and keep watch. So we pretty much got the whole camp to ourselves. I eventually dozed off at about 5:00 in the morning only to wake up again at about 7:00 feeling like I had been run over but a truck. My head throbbed, my throat was in flames and..and.. I had just enough time to grab a trash can before my stomach wrenched and I threw up into it. I wiped my mouth and got back into bed. This is going to be one hell of a week…
Seaweed brain is really going to get it. Its nearly lunch time and he is still in bed! Honestly, its as if hes going to spend our week alone sleeping in! I got up from my desk and went over to the posiedon cabin. i banged on the door. Nothing. I knocked again. Still nothing. finnaly i gave up knocking and went in. Percy was fast asleep in his bunk. I shoke him gently, he rolled over and slowly opened his eyes "
Rise and shine seaweed brain!" i said
"Morning Annabeth" he whispered
"Not much morning left!" i said "Its nearly noon! i was starting to believe that you were gonna spend our week together in bed!"
"Im sorry Annabeth" he said "im not feeling to-" he stopped and moaned, his face turned a funny shade of green.
"Are you okay?" i asked him, worried. Percy shook his head. he lurched and was violently sick to his stomach in a trash can beside his bed. Startled, i put a hand on his forehead and instantly felt his fever. Oh crap i thought. This was going to be one hell of a week...
I woke up again to someone shaking me. i opened my to see Annabeth standing over me
"Rise and shine seaweed brain!" she said. I tried to speak but it came out as a whisper
"Morning Annabeth" "Not much morning left!" she said "Its nearly noon! i was starting to believe that you were going to spend our week together in bed!" not a bad guess. i thought
"im sorry Annabeth" i said "im not feeling to-" i cut off as my stomach churned, Annabeth asked if i was alright i barely had enough time to shake my head before i lurched and threw up into the trash can. Annabeth looked startled she put her hand on my forehead and looked concerned.
"I'll be right back" she said and and walked out the door. i sighed. There goes our fantastic week together...
"I'll be right back" i said and as i walked out the door i couldnt help feeling a little disapointed. i was looking forward to the one week we have alone together and he gets sick said my inner devil. he cant help being sick said my inner angel. i sighed. There was nothing i could do about it anyway. i was stuck taking care of him. i reached my destination, the infirmary and walked inside. I quickly grabbed a first aid kit and some ice and started walking back to cabin 3. There goes our fantastic week together...
it wasnt long before Annabeth reapered in the doorway. She was carrying a first aid kit. She fiddled with it for a moment before tossing me a thermometer, which i stuck i my mouth without hesitation. It beeped after a few minutes and i handed it to her. i couldnt stop a groan from escaping my lips as my head throbbed painfully. Annbeth looked at me with a look of concern. i tried to say i was fine but it came out as a moan. She turned her back to me for a moment and then handed me something that made me want to worship her, an ice pack. i pressed it to my pounding head and shot her a look of gratitude. This is not what i pictured doing today...
I reached the cabin and walked inside. Percy looked like he wanted to smile but the look on his face was closer to a grimace. i set the first aid kit down on a vancant bed, opened it, and tossed him a thermometer. he stuck it in his mouth and it beeped after a few moments. He handed it to me and i looked at it. It said 102.1, Percy groan quietly and clutched his head. Poor guy i thought. i quickly fashioned an ice pack and gave it to him. he pressed it to his forehead and gave me a look of gratitude. i sighed, This is not what i pictured doing today...
That night wasnt much better then last night. i woke up every hour...10:00...11:00...12:00...1:00...each time i would get sick again. i ended up moving the trash can outside so as to not wake up Annabeth, who had moved her stuff in from the Athena cabin to be with me. I was a little embarassed but grateful to her for caring about me. i crawled my way back into bed at 1:00 and looked at Annabeth. I was surprised to see her sitting up and looking at me.
"How long have you been awake?" i whispered "Long enough." she replied
"Are you okay?" At any other time i would have laughed at her stupid question but i was to sick now to have a since of humor. i shook my head. she got out of bed, turned on the light and started sifting through the first aid kit with her back to me. After a moment she handed me a small white pill.
"Whats this?" i asked
"Some sleeping pill" she replied
"Is it strong?" i asked.
"Put it this way, Hades used the same brand to make Cerberus sleep once. I think we both need to get some rest." i nodded and took it. i drifted off to sleep. not really looking forward to tomorrow...
i woke up at about 12:58 in the morning. I glanced over at Percy. At first i thought he was asleep but i was proved wrong when he turned over and got out of bed. he must have thought i was still asleep because he was careful not to make a sound. He went outside and a moment later i heard him wretching. He must have moved the trash can outside so he wouldnt wake me. It was sweet that he would think of me while he was so sick. After a moment i saw him crawl back inside. He looked at me in surprise
"How long have you been awake?" he asked.
"Long enough." i replied "Are you okay?" stupid question i thought. Percy shook his head and i got out of bed. i turned on the light and searched through the first aid kit. i picked up a small bottle of sleeping pills and handed him one.
"Some sleeping pill" I answered, looking at the bottle. This was some strong stuff. Recommended for use on giant beasts, monsters, and other horrendously large creatures. Well, it would have to do.
"Is it strong?"
"Put it this way, Hades used the same brand to make Cerberus sleep once. I think we both need to get some rest." he nodded and took it. i waited a moment to make sure he was asleep before turning off the light and getting into bed. i drifted off to sleep. not really looking forward to tomorrow...
