It was three AM and the two demigods were asleep. A certain goddess of love and a certain goddess of discord were outside their door, planning some not-so-good stuff. Let me break it down for you, see Aphrodite(or Frothy) decided that Luke and Percy were getting along too much, and all couples have to have fights, or else Aphrodite doesn't feel accomplished. So she teams up with the goddess of discord to cause mayhem, then she swoops in to make it all better, just to entertain herself then make everyone think she's the hero. Yeah, she's been framing Eris for eons!
And as I said before, Aphrodite's new love guinea pigs were Luke and Percy, because demigods are prone to acting rationally and not being able to handle their emotions well, which is perfect for fights!
So, she rang the doorbell and placed the single, golden apple with the notecard on the doorstep, and she and Eris disappeared in to the house to watch their reactions and what they'd do. They were invisible of course.
"Luke... Doorbell." Percy groaned, rolling over to bury his head into his pillow.
"Percy... Doorbell." Luke mimicked, too tired to think of his own comeback.
"Okay, you're coming with me." Percy said sleepily, pulling on a pair of pants and scrambled to the door.
"Fine, fine." replied Luke, following Percy out.
Luke opened the door, and picked up the golden apple and showed it to Percy. "Look, it's an apple." He mumbled sleepily.
Luckily, Percy was up and running. "Are you crazy! It's the GOLDEN apple. Oh, a card." He picked up the note as well, then closed the door. He pulled Luke to the couch to read it. That, and Luke looked bit too tired to be standing up.
They both plopped down, Luke almost fell asleep again, so Percy, being the sweet boyfriend he is, splashed him with cold water. That got him awake.
"Okay, Luke. I'm dyslexic, so you have to read the note." Percy said, rubbing his temple after trying to decipher what the note said.
"Sure, but you know I'm dyslexic, as well?" Luke asked, plucking the note out of Percy's hand.
"Yeah, but not as bad as my dyslexia."
"True. Okay, lemme see." Luke mumbled focusing his eyes on the card. It took a while, but he finally figured out what it said, and he wasn't happy.
"So, what does it say?" Percy asked, curious to know what was so bad, that it cause Luke to quiver slightly.
"Uh... Uh... Nothing, Percy..." Luke replied quickly crumbling up the paper. 'Zues! I should've remembered Percy couldn't read it!' Aphrodite cursed in her mind, then quickly used some godly magic to translate it to ancient greek, to make it more readable.
"Seriously, Luke! Give me it!" Percy laughs nervously.
"Okay, but I can't read it, and I'm pretty sure neither can you." Luke says, smiling at how easy that lie was. He gave the little paper ball to Percy, trusting on the fact that he couldn't read it.
"Whatever, let me try." Percy un-crumbled the paper, smoothing out the edges. "Uh, Luke, what do you mean you couldn't read it. It's greek." Percy asks, looking at Luke.
"Oh, I don't know...Maybe it's my eyes." Luke said cooly, but in his mind, he was a nervous wreck. He was so screwed...
Percy read the note, then almost dropped it.
Heres what the note said:
Γεια σου αγάπη, πώς είσαι; Σ 'αγαπώ, Λουκ. Και μόλις χωρίσει με Percy, θαμπορούσατε να μοιραστείτε αυτήν την αγάπη με τον υπόλοιπο κόσμο. Δεν μπορεί να κρατήσει την αγάπη μας για πάντα κρυμμένη, δεξιά. Και δεν αισθάνομαι δικαίωμα να εξαπατήσει σχετικά με Percy. Ω, και εδώ είναι ένα χρυσό μήλο.
Αγκαλιές και φιλιά, Kelli
Hello love, how are you? I love you, Luke. And once you break up with Percy, we could share that love with the rest of the world. We can't keep our love hidden forever, right? And it doesn't feel right to cheat on Percy. Oh, and here's a golden apple to celebrate our love.
Hugs and Kisses, Kelli
Percy froze, holding the letter so hard that the edges ripped. "Percy, are you all right?" Luke asked, nervous.
"How could you Luke!" Percy asked, still looking at the letter, frozen.
"Percy! I didn't do it, I swear!" Luke said, reaching out to touch Percy's arm. The younger demigod flinched away from him, pulling his arm away from Luke's grasp.
"Really? And how do you explain where you were yesterday night? And you didn't get back until one, that's why you were so tired!" Percy yelled, looking at Luke for the first time.
"I left last night to take a walk, clear my head. Not to visit my old monster of a girlfriend!" Luke screamed back.
"YEAH RIGHT! KELLI WOULDN'T JUST GIVE YOU A FREAKING GOLDEN APPLE IF YOU DIDN'T!" Percy shouted, thrusting Luke the apple, for emphasis.
"NOW YOU'RE CALLING ME A LIAR?" Luke screeched in Percy's face. Percy jerked away from him a little.
"Well, you are a son of Hermes!" Percy scoffed, not looking at Luke.
"I THOUGHT YOU WOULD TRUST ME. OF ALL THE PEOPLE, PERCY, I THOUGHT YOU WOULD BELIEVE ME. YOU BELIEVED ME WITH KRONOS, OR WAS IT JUST AN ACT? HUH?" Luke yelled.
"THIS. HAS. NOTHING. TO. DO. WITH. KRONOS!" Percy screamed, "THIS HAS TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT YOU CHEATED ON ME! THIS RELATIONSHIP WAS BUILT ON TRUST, AND NOW I DON'T EXACTLY TRUST YOU!"
"SHUT UP, PERCY. YOU AND I BOTH KNOW THAT YOU NEVER TRUSTED ME. NOT EVEN FROM THE START."
Percy froze. He bit his lip to stop the tears. "Fine Luke. You win. I'm leaving." And with that, the younger demigod ran away, leaving a trail of tears and a depressed Luke to watch his back as he ran away.
Luke froze. He held his head in his hands and collapsed on the couch. He knew Percy was gone, he knew he wouldn't come back even if he chased after him.
And for the first time in twelve years, Luke cried. He didn't exactly wail like a new born, but he did cry quite a bit. He curled up on the couch and buried his head in the pillows, trying to rewind time to the fight. To make everything better. But he couldn't. And Aphrodite actually felt a twinge of regret when she saw it. So she decided to make up for it a bit. She 'appeared' in pink smoke, light around her frame, for dramatic effect.
Luke looked up and wiped his tears.
"Luke, what did you do?" Aphrodite asked, though she already knew, but wanted to hear Luke's version.
"Percy and I had our first fight since we got together. And it wasn't like a sword fight kind of fight, but like a yelling kind. And I wish it was a sword fight, so much less pain!"Luke sniffed. Aphrodite rolled her eyes.
"Seriously, Percy is new to relationships. You can't go yelling in the poor boy's face! What were you about to expect? For Percy to run into your arms, apologizing? Hades! Even I know Percy would run away!" Aphrodite yells, marching up to Luke and slapped him upside the head.
"Ow! Fine. What the Hades am I supposed to do then?" Luke snapped, rubbing the spot Aphrodite hit him.
"Uh, actually make Percy think you care? What must be going through that poor boy's head?" The goddess of love froze to look at him, "Probably the fact that his boyfriend doesn't care enough to get his skinny butt wet in the rain to search for him!"
Luke winced. "I do want to search for him, I do. But he won't come back. The fact that he left, proves it."
"SO? HE THINKS THAT YOU DON'T CARE THAT HE LEFT!" Aphrodite screams, slapping Luke's cheeks with every word.
"But, he needs space..." Luke mumbles
"NO! HE NEEDS A ROOF OVER HIS HEAD! HE WAS WEARING A T-SHIRT AND FLANNEL PANTS, WHILE ZUES IS MAD! ARE YOU CRAZY? HE MUST BE FREEZING!"
"Oh my gods, you're right." Luke realizes, who worried a little too much on Percy's physical well being, pulling on a jacket and shoes before running down the stairs of the apartment building, into the rain.
He didn't have to go far, Percy was right in the alley next to the building. He was crouched down, hugging his knees and crying. His shoulders moving with every sob.
Luke's heart broke at the sight. Percy still didn't notice him, even though Luke was standing right above him.
"Percy, Gods. I am so sorry." Luke whispered, leaning down to be eye level with Percy. He pulled the younger into a hug, and Percy rested his chin on Luke's shoulder. "I'm sorry too. I am such a coward." Percy laughed a bitter laugh, "I run away whenever I can't handle something."
Luke rubbed his back soothingly, "Percy, you are not. You're the bravest person I know."
Percy smiled sadly, "Thanks Luke." Then the boy fell asleep, the lack of sleep and rain getting to him. Luke quickly shrugged off his jacket and bundled Percy up in it, then picked him up and up the stairs, into their apartment.
He quickly kicked open the door open and sighed when he confirmed Aphrodite wasn't here anymore. One less problem for Luke.
He undressed Percy and hurriedly put a warm thermal and sweatpants on him. Then he settled Percy down on the couch before burying him in pillows and blankets. Gods, Luke is getting overprotective.
After he kissed Percy's forehead ten times, he hesitantly stepped to the kitchen, leaving Percy's side. He opened the refrigerator and pulled out some alphabet soup for Percy. He looked over at Percy's sleeping frame for the twentieth time since he been in the kitchen, and smiled when he saw Percy's peaceful expression. It was cute.
He set the kettle on the stove and went to check on Percy. He was still sleeping, but stirred slightly when Luke adjusted the blanket.
"Luke?" He mumbles, getting up a little, only to get pushed back down by Luke.
"Shh. You need some rest." Luke coaxed, brushing some hair away from Percy's face.
"Gods, you're like my mom. Except she would've made soup." Percy chuckles.
Luke laughed nervously, "Yeah, moms are like that."
"You totally made soup." Percy laughs
"Pshhh..." Luke brushed it off, "Okay, fine I did."
"Shut up, and get some rest."
"Fine, but could you take some blankets off? It's hot." Percy says, pushing one off his face, down to his chin.
"Got it." Luke says, taking about three off.
"Ah, much better." Percy says, adjusting his position to face Luke. "I love you" he murmured softly, reaching up to cradle Luke's cheek.
"Love you too." Luke replies, leaning into Percy's palm. "I'm going to get you some water, you look a bit feverish." Luke says worriedly, pressing a hand to Percy's forehead.
"Wait! Kiss me first!" Percy grins, puckering his lips slightly and closing his eyes. Luke laughs but leans down slowly and almost gets to press his lips against Percy's sweet lips, but they were interrupted by the squeal of the kettle.
Luke and Percy both sighed and broke away. Luke ran to get it and closed the heat, then he shook a fist in the air and yelled, "CURSE YOU FATES!"
Aphrodite laughed silently and she watched from her delightful view of the window. Now, she felt accomplished, breaking the two up, but glueing them back together. Actually, Aphrodite didn't exactly help that much, but in Aphrodite's head, it all was made possible by her. Goddesses these days.
A/N: rawr. Come at me you gnomes. And yes, this was cheesy and predictable, but shut up!
