I'm so sorry I haven't updated in such a long time! I've been super busy with school and recently my boyfriend broke-up with me so I wasn't really in the mood to write about love, or actually to write at all. But here is the last chapter of my story, i hope you like it! And let me know what you think!
I slowly approached the him, not knowing whether this was a good idea or not. But it really was now or never. I had to do everything in my power to make things right because if I didn't do it now, I would regret it forever. Because he truly was the love of my life, that was the one thing I was absolutely sure of.
Percy didn't notice me until I was on the jetty. He looked at me with a troubled expression. I suddenly didn't know what to say anymore, my throat was dry and a lump formed in my stomach. I had the urge to run away as fast as I could, but I didn't. I looked closely at Percy and noticed he had been crying, his eyes were red and there were strains of tears still running over his face. I sat down next to him and put my arm around his shoulder.
It was an instinctive movement, realization hit me like a slap in the face. What in Hades was I doing? But then I relaxed, he didn't shrug me off, he even put his head in my shoulder.
I closed my eyes and inhaled his wonderful sea smell and felt like I was coming home after a long journey.
I knew that I had to start talking soon, but for now I just enjoyed sitting with him on the edge of the jetty with our feet dangling in the water.
I had been sitting on the jetty for more than four hours, that was when I heard someone behind me. I didn't bother to wipe of my tears. I was so lost, I didn't know what to do with myself anymore. It was pathetic actually, I was supposed to be the big hero.
I had been avoiding Annabeth for the past couple of days because I wanted to sort things out for myself. I thought it would help, not seeing her, but it didn't. It only made things worse, so here I am crying my eyes out like a pathetic teenage girl. I couldn't describe what I was feeling, it was so confusing. All I knew for sure is that I couldn't and didn't want to live without her.
Suddenly the footsteps were close behind me, I looked up and found myself staring at Annabeth.
She didn't say anything, she just stared at me with a shocked expression. I was very aware of the tears that were still streaming down my face but I didn't bother to wipe them away. I expected her to turn and run away but instead she did something that surprised me.
She sat down next to me and put her arm around me.
At first I tensed but then I realized that this was all I wanted, a shoulder to cry on and to be with the girl I love the most. I put my head on her shoulder and enjoyed the silence, it wasn't awkward at all, there was so much to be said that we didn't know where to start.
I knew it was time so say something, but I didn't know where to start.I thought it through so many times, but when the time was finally there to say something, I didn't know what to say.
I looked down at him, the crying stopped and he just sat there staring at the waves.
"Percy, I don't know where to start, and I don't know how to explain exactly what I'm feeling, but all I know for sure is that I don't want to live without you. I know I messed things up, and everything just went from bad to worse after the quest. But I realize now that breaking-up with you was the biggest mistake of my life."
"I know Annabeth, I know. That's the hardest part, I know everything, I remember everything. Yesterday, all the things that happened that one night before the monster attacked us came back to me. I just don't know how to deal with all these feelings. There is so much I don't understand, so much we left unsaid and so many what ifs… I have no idea how I can explain everything I'm feeling. But I don't want to live with you either, even if that means having to feel this way forever. I love you Annabeth, that truly is the one thing I'm certain of at the moment."
Hot tears were streaming down my face, I couldn't stop them, I didn't want them to stop. All the pain, all the heartache, all the mixed feelings where coming out. It felt so good to finally let it all go. But I wasn't crying only crying of sadness, I was also crying of happiness. After everything, he still loved me and that was enough to get me through. I looked at him, tears streaming down our faces, but there was also hope in his eyes. He leaned in and kissed me. The familiar feeling spread through my body, setting every vein on fire. The kiss was sad yet filled of hope. Our tears mixed together on our cheeks and I desperately clung harder to him, I didn't want to let him go. He did the same thing and our kiss turned in the tightest embrace ever.
"I love you too Percy, that's one thing that has never changed"
"How are we ever going to get things right again? " He signed.
To be honest, I didn't know. We couldn't just forget everything that happened.
"i don't know Perce, but all I know is that I want this to work. I want to be with you and I really want to make things right. How about we just try, take things slow and see where this all leads? "
He smiled, like that was the answer he wanted to hear, then he said:
"That sounds perfect to me, and the wish Aphrodite gave us, I think I know what to do with it. How about we wish that from now on, she has to stay out of our relationship, let us decide things for ourselves"
I couldn't answer, I just threw my arms around him again, knowing that he would understand me.
The tears stopped streaming now. I knew things were going to be all right, it would take a lot of time and effort though. But that was the price I was willing to pay, because I knew that this, that we, were meant to be.
I really enjoyed writing this story, thanks for all the revieuws, they made me feel amazing! I hope to hear what you think of this last chapter.
Thanks for everything!
