Part II

With Piper & the Girls

"Boy am I glad they didn't make me do this." Katie muttered to Annabeth, who was lazily reading a magazine in the Aphrodite Cabin.

"I want to get out of here." the daughter of Athena growled. "But no, the Aphrodite girls asked the Hecate Cabin to charm their cabin so no one can get in or out unless they're given their permission.

"Tell me about it," Katie added. "I'm supposed to be in the fields right now."

"And, I'm supposed to be checking up on the Argo II." Annabeth muttered.

"Gods, you'd think I'd never lose them." Piper breathed, running into the room. Her brown hair was tied messily into a bun and curled slightly.

"Hey, Piper." Annabeth said, smirking. "How's everything going?"

The daughter of Aphrodite scowled. "They're trying to put me into a skimpy little dress and pass it off as semiformal!"

Katie smiled knowingly at Piper, standing up. "Here, why don't we" She motioned to Annabeth and herself. "Go help you find a dress." The daughter of Demeter pulled Annabeth and Piper into the large closet towards the dress section…

With Jason & the Guys

"You sound like a starving walrus."

"Hey!" Travis defended. "This should be you singing, not me!"

"I know," Jason sighed. "But don't you think that this is a little too much?"

"Nonsense!" Travis cried, a wide grin on his face. "Girls love it when guys serenade them."

"Uh huh," the son of Jupiter muttered uncertainly. "Piper isn't like most girls though."

"Ugh, just listen to us, man. We are the one who have girlfriends, not you." Will pointed out, setting down his acoustic guitar.

"Er, didn't the Aphrodite girls have to help you guys?"

"Not the point, man." Travis said, shaking his head. "C'mon, take it from the top, guys."

With Piper & the Girls

"I like it." the daughter of Aphrodite said, grinning while looking in the mirror.

"Good, because that's as close to conservative you're going to get." Drew said coolly.

Piper smiled, looking at her reflection. She was wearing a strapless red dress that went to just above her knees. It was simple, yet beautiful. Just like her. On her feet were 2-inch black high heels.

"I'm going to trip wearing these heels." Piper grumbled.

"Oh, you'll be fine." Drew said, waving it off.

"What time is it?" Annabeth asked, glancing around the room for a clock.

"5:47," Lacy answered casually. "So we have…"

"13 minutes to kill," the daughter of Athena finished.

"Right," Katie agreed. "So, what do we do for 13 minutes?"

Lacy grinned at Drew widely. "Makeup check," she said.

"Oh gods, no!" Piper groaned.

With Jason & the Guys

"Almost time, man." Travis said, grinning.

Jason fidgeted in nervously. He was wearing a red shirt, a black vest, black slacks, and black dress shoes. "Ugh, I hate dressing up." he muttered.

"Like girlfriend, like boyfriend," Will mused, a small smile on his face.

"This is why you two are a cute couple." Travis concluded, grinning.

"5:53, Jason. You'd better get over there." Will suggested. "Don't wanna be late."

"Do I really have to sing?"

"For the millionth time, yes!" the son of Hermes cried, exasperated, steering Jason over to a shaded place in the woods. With some convincing from Juniper, the nymphs allowed the daughters of Aphrodite, Juniper, and Leo to set up a mini restaurant for two.

"Okay, when Piper comes," Will drilled. "Stand up and pull out her chair. When she stands up, stand up and don't sit down until she does, or she's out of sight."

"Got it,"

The son of Apollo grinned at the son of Hermes and the son of Jupiter. "I think he's ready." he said.

With Piper

"5:57," Lacy said. "Think it's time to go?"

"It's time." Drew said, nodding.

"Oh gods," Piper groaned as the two daughters of Aphrodite steered her towards a secluded area in the woods. The daughter of Athena and the daughter of Demeter followed closely behind, curious as to what was going to happen.

"He's already there!" Lacy hissed quietly to Drew.

Drew grinned, pushing Piper into the clearing. "Good luck, Piper."

Jason looked up as Piper suddenly appeared from out of nowhere. "P-Piper," he said nervously, standing up. His mouth dropped as he saw how… gorgeous she looked. She was more beautiful than the night Aphrodite claimed her.

And she was his.

"Hey, Jason." Piper said, a nervous smile on her face. "You look… nice."

"Uh, thanks. Y-you look… great." he said, nearly speechless. Piper smiled, a blush on her face as she walked to the table, and Jason hastily got up, pulling out her chair.

"Thanks," she murmured.

The son of Jupiter smiled coyly. "No problem," And then, the first strike of awkward silence hit the couple. "Did it hurt?" Jason blurted out suddenly. Oh gods he thought. Am I really resorting to Travis's corny pick up lines?

Piper raised an eyebrow, amused. Obviously, she knew the pick up line. "Did what hurt, Jason?" she asked, playing along.

"Er… when you fell from heaven," he said, blushing.

Piper laughed slightly. "Nah, it wasn't too bad." she answered, a smile on her face. "What's next, Grace?" the daughter of Aphrodite asked amusedly. "If I could rearrange the alphabet I would put U and I together?"

Jason pouted slightly. "You took my next one!" he joked. The two laughed, temporarily easing the awkwardness. "You look really beautiful, Piper." he whispered softly.

The daughter of Aphrodite blushed a deep shade of crimson. "Th-thanks, you look really good too."

"Excuse me," The two turned to see Lacy in a waitresses outfit. The daughter of Aphrodite smiled at the couple. "Would you like to start out with a drink?"

"Ah, sure." Piper said slowly. "Whatdaya got, Lacy?"

"Oh, the usual. Speak into the cup, and get whatever you want." she answered. Lacy bent down, then said quietly, "But the Stoll bros snuck in Pepsi from an actual can, if you want that."

"Sure," Jason said, nodding. "I'll take that."

"Same," Piper added.

"Great!" Lacy said cheerfully, handing them the menus. "I'll be back in about five minutes, guys!"

"Well," the daughter of Aphrodite mused. "That was… odd."

'Yeah," Jason agreed. "It was." He smiled.

"So," she said awkwardly.

"So," he blurted. "Why was six afraid of seven?"

Piper smiled, laughing quietly. "Why, Jason?"

"Because seven, eight, nine," he finished, smiling.

She laughed. "You're so weird, but it's okay. I like weird. Any other corny jokes you got up your sleeve?"

"Um… Why did the pony have to gargle?"

Piper pursed her lips. "Okay, I don't know."

"Because he was a little horse," Jason supplied.

She smiled, closing her eyes. Jason was acting so… different. What was wrong with him?

"I'm back!" Lacy said cheerfully. "What would you like to order?"

"Er, I'll have the fettuccine chicken alfredo," Piper requested.

"And I'll have the gyros," Jason ordered.

Lacy smiled, scribbling down on her notepad. "Okey dokey! I'll be back when it's finished!"

"You know what's ironic," Piper mused.


"The fact that I ordered Italian food, and you ordered Greek food." she said, smiling.

"Huh," the son of Jupiter said. "That's… odd."

With Drew & Everyone Else

"They are failing." Leo deadpanned. "Epically.

"Got that right," Katie agreed. She turned to her boyfriend. "Let me guess; you told him all those corny jokes?"

Travis nodded sheepishly. "Hey, in my defense, you laugh at them!"

"No," Annabeth corrected. "She laughs at how pathetic your jokes are."

"Oh well," Will said, shrugging. "We've still got the whole serenade thing."

"Except Jason can't sing to save his life," Travis muttered.

"Psh, neither can you." Will retorted.

"What guy can sing well?" Annabeth scoffed.

"Sons of Apollo," Drew answered, glancing at Will. "Er—some of them."

"Is Justin Bieber a demigod?" Lacy asked curiously.

"No," Will said, shaking his head. "He's not cool enough to be a demigod."

"Bruno Mars is though," Katie mused.

"And that is one of the reasons why I love you," Travis said, giving her a kiss.

"Ooh, do you think Taylor Lautner is a son of Aphrodite?" Lacy asked excitedly.

"It's possible." Annabeth muttered.

Travis gasped, putting a hand over his heart. "Annabeth watches Twilight?"

"No," she snapped. "I did watch Valentine's Day, though. And Sharkboy and Lava Girl."

"That was him?" Travis asked surprisingly. Drew, Annabeth, Lacy, and Katie nodded.

"You learn something new each day, don't you?" Will mused.

Time Lapse

With Piper & Jason

"Well," Piper said. "That was good."

"Yeah," Jason agreed. "It was. So, why did the clown go to the doctor?"

The daughter of Aphrodite sighed, annoyed. "Why, Jason?"

"Because he was feeling funny!" he exclaimed, laughing. "Get it?"

"Of course I get it, Jason! I've heard all of these jokes before, and I'm sure you have to!" she snapped. Piper sighed. "What is wrong with you tonight, Jason? You're not acting like yourself."

"Wha? There's—" Jason sighed. "Fine. Travis and Will were telling me all these things to make you like me, and I thought they might work, so I used them."

"Why would you listen to Travis and Will?"

"They both have girlfriends, and I don't!" Jason yelled.

Piper looked him straight in his eyes, placing her hands on his. "But you have me, Jason." she whispered. "We just weren't… official yet. You don't have to be like Travis or Will because I don't care if they got a girlfriend before you. I like you for you, not what those boys told you to be, okay?"

"… You like me?"

"Gee, what was your first clue?" the daughter of Aphrodite asked sarcastically. "Of course!"

Jason's lips curled into a smile. "Good, because I really like you."

"Good to know, Grace." Piper said quietly, both of them leaning towards each other.

Soon, their lips were caught into a kiss, their first kiss together.

"Be my girlfriend?" Jason breathed after their kiss. She nodded, smiling, then kissed him again.

And in the background, if they would've listened harder, they would've heard a certain son of Apollo playing a familiar song quietly.

That for you

I'll do it all over again

Do it all over again

All I went through, led me to you

So I'd do it all over again

For you
