So. If you didn't review last chapter, let me remind you to back up, press the back button, then review and make your hannahkay happy. REVIEW(for both chapters...and any chapters you have missed...). Because, just ask my best friend, I am a very needy person. I need the love. PLEASE.


"Percy?" I whimpered, glaring at them. "Where is Percy?" My eyes welled up with angry tears. "Percy!" I yelled into the dark night. No one said anything. There was no sound, only the gentle lapping of water against the shoreline. I started sobbing and ran outside into the night.

"Annabeth!" Malcolm yelled after me.

Someone grabbed my waist and I yelled out. "Annabeth... running about outside at night isn't a smart idea, sweetheart." Percy whispered into my ear. I turned around and threw my arms around him.

"Gods, Percy. You gave me a heart attack." I said angrilly, pushing him slightly.

"Did I?" He asked me, laughing huskily. "I'm sorry I scarred you, love." He kissed my forehead.

"I love you.." I told him, kissing him.

"I got him." He said, beaming at me. "He's gone."

"So it's over?" I asked, eyes burning with joy.

"It's over." He agreed, taking my hand and leading me back to the big house. "What's that smell?"

"While you were gone we made cookies."

"Who suggested that?"

"It was my idea.. after I promised a bunch of eight year olds that they could be my flower girls..."

He raised an eye brow at me, confused. "You're already planning? Someone's ready to get married."

"They asked and they were so exited.. How could I say no?" I laughed at the look on his face.

"So you aren't ready to get married?" His voice was quiet, a little hurt.

I stopped him in his progress toward the big house and looked into his sea green eyes. "Yes. I am ready to get married."

"Yay!" He said, giggling. He started jumping up and down, clapping his hands, but I took his hands in mine, placing them on my waist. "Hm... so. Now that things are normal again.." He reached down and cupped my face in his hands. I smiled as a summer breeze made my hair blow about my face. "Ahh, the beauty of a summer night." He kissed me and I let my arms wrap around his neck. My fingers tangled in the hair at the back of his neck and he chuckled. "I want a cookie."

"You are so easily distracted. Just kiss me, Percy.. I'll make you more cookies if they eat them all."


"I swear." I whispered, leaning my body into his. He laughed, lowering our bodies to the grass and we layed back against the soft grass. His hands playfully played with the back of my shirt, tugging at it and touching the skin at the small of my back. I groaned, wrapping my legs around his waist. "Percy." I whispered his name into the night but it seemed to echo through the dark sky. He pulled away and then rolled over onto his back, gazing up at the stars.

"Zoe is watching us." He mumbled, chuckling darkly.

"Yes." I agreed, taking his hand and laying my head against his chest.

"Percy! Annabeth! Chiron and Dino are back!" Someone yelled from the house.

I growled under my breath and stood up, running to the house. Sure enough, Chiron was sitting in his wheel chair beside a tray of cookies, munching on a chocolate chip and Dino was complaining that we didn't make any grape flavored cookies. "Hey." I said, beaming at Chiron.

"Hey, my heros. I see you have controled the problem." He responded, nodding at Percy.

"Yes we have." I told him happily.

"And guess what else you missed!" Katie said, running up and grabbing my hand, showing it to them.

Dino smiled, laughing loudly. "Great! Perry and Anna Bell are getting married. Yay." He said, dully. "But you could've made me grape cookies."

"We might have if we would've known you were coming." I said, laughing humorlessly. He left the room, pouting and Chiron clapped his hands.

"So! We're having a demigod wedding?" His voice was light.

God... that was short. I just wanted to give you another chapter after the long wait and the cliffhangerness of the previous chapter... But I swear if you guys don't review after two back to back chapters I... (remember the death by fire? I could still pull that one out). Oh and it would be great if you would review for BOTH chapters, not just the one... THANKS:) In loving farewell (if you reviewed, if you did not I hate you!)
