A/N Hey World.
Ahn-young-ha-say-oh or however you spell it in English. Korean for Hello… anyone?
Alrighty, so here's the story. "The Wrong Date" is about Jason. He is Socially Awkward. Just like that sentence lol. Alright, let's get to it. You will see glimpses of the other Jasons though. Wow that sounds weird.
THIS IS NOT A ONE SHOT!
Had to put that in caps idk why…
Please review! My first real story! :)
Oh yeah, I don't own THOO. I wish I did… BECAUSE THEN JASON WOULD BE SOCIALLY AWKWARD! ^^
"Hey Jason," Piper said, walking up to him. "How've you been?"
"Uh, me? Um, great. Well not great. But o-okay. I guess," he stuttered, staring at the ground.
There was silence for a moment. "Aren't you going to ask me how I've been?" Piper prompted, poking her friend on the shoulder.
"Me? Ask you? Um, uh, good! Oh, what did you say?" he rushed out, his words blending together. "Oh you mean how have you been? I don't know. How have you been?" he inquired.
She laughed. "I've been good. I'm better now that I'm with you," she said with a flirtatious smile. Gods, this was progress. She'd never talked with Jason this much before!
"What's that mean? Do you expect me to give you a gift? I don't have one!" Jason cried out, looking up to Piper's confused eyes, which appeared browner at the moment. He started hyperventilating. "I'm sorry!"
"Jason! Jason relax. I just want to hang with you," she said, putting a reassuring hand on his shoulder.
"Y-you do?" he asked. His breathing slowed. "Oh. Well then, what do you want to do?"
"I was thinking—"
"Hey Beauty Queen!"
Piper groaned and rolled her eyes. "What, Leo?"
"You and Sparky want to come over here? I built some crazy contraption, and I totally think it's worth your time," he said, flashing them a smile. He was covered in grease and grime, his hair sticking up on one side. He grinned. "Well come on! I'm not going to wait forever!"
"You're asking me?" Jason asked, looking shocked. "You're asking me to go see something?"
Leo paused and stared at Jason. "Um, yeah dude. Let's go!"
"Come on Jason, let's go," Piper said, grabbing his hand and dragging him after Leo before he could start hyperventilating again. "Let's go boy."
"Am I your dog? I thought we weren't allowed to have dogs at Camp," he said, and Piper sighed. Good thing he's cute, she thought to herself. Or he'd be a goner.
"No, I'm just teasing you, she replied, and then they entered the forges. They were both blasted with the intense heat and started to sweat. Leo, however, didn't seem bothered at all by the extreme temperature, grabbing a glowing hot object from some flames. "Ready to see this?" he asked, so excited he was bouncing on his heels.
Piper rolled her eyes. "Whatever, Valdez. Let's get this thing going, then I've got a date with Jason."
"A date? What date? I don't remember asking you," Jason said, looking confused. He's cute, she reminded herself.
"It's nothing," she assured him, then turned to Leo. "Show me."
"Alright, prepare to be amazed," Leo said, then held out the object. It was a small bronze sphere about the size of a baseball. There was a small portion made of glass where you could see wires whirring and glowing inside.
Piper stared at Leo, then at the sphere, then back at Leo. "You wasted five minutes and made me all sweaty to see this?"
"This thing happens to be a personality switcher," Leo informed Piper. "You like Jason, I know that. But you think his attitude could be improved, right?"
"Wrong," Piper said. "Let's go Jason."
"Hey, lemme talk to Jason a little," Leo said, grabbing his friend's hand. "Then I promise I'll let him go."
"Fine. Meet me at the Basketball courts at dinner," Piper said, and Jason stared after her.
"She's pretty," Jason murmured, and Leo smacked his head. "Ow! What was that for?"
"For being so awkward, you idiot! You got one of the prettiest girls in Camp and you act like you're a clueless weirdo," Leo replied, frowning at him. "Let's get you switched."
"Switched what? Are we switching cabins? Because Chiron said we're not allowed to," Jason said. Leo sighed, reached into his tool belt, and pulled out the duct tape. He covered Jason's mouth.
"Ah, much better," he sighed, and then began to work. He opened the sphere's glass portion and pulled a wire out, a malicious grin spreading across his face. He taped it to Jason's left hand, and then he clicked a hidden button.
"Let's see how this went," Leo said, taking the tape off of Jason's mouth.
"Where is Piper?" Jason asked, and Leo groaned. Uh-oh. Did it not work? "Where is Piper?" Jason insisted.
"Uh, at her cabin? Where she always is?" Leo said, his confusion making his statements sound like questions. "Why?"
"I must go to her! My love is away from me! I cannot breathe!" Jason declared, earning several strange looks from the other Hephaestus campers. "Um, he's on meds," Leo muttered, then led Jason outside.
"Is she out here? My sweet Piper?" Jason asked Leo. He shrugged.
"Whatever connects your wires," Leo replied. Then he retaped the wire onto his hand and pressed the button again.
"Ugh, why is this horrendous wire on my hand?" Jason asked, and then sniffed. He saw Leo, and he groaned. "Ugh, why are you here?"
"I'm your friend, Leo. I'm helping you become better so that you can meet Piper for your date!" Leo replied. "What's gotten into you?"
"Scum," Jason scoffed, looking Leo over. Leo examined himself, then literally started burning in fury. Sure, he was a little grimy from all the work in the forges, but that didn't make him filthy. The rage that he used to hold against bullies at school was surfacing. "Shut up," Leo growled, trying to keep his temper in check.
"I will," Leo said, his hand clenching.
"You, Valdez! Sup, man? How you been?" Jason asked, slapping him on the back. "How's my homie-G been? I haven't seen you in a while, dawg!"
"Man, it's been forever!" Jason grinned. Just then Piper walked past the forges on the other side. "Whoops, my girl is over there. Catch you later brah!"
"Wait, Jason!" Leo shouted, but it was too late. Leo groaned and smacked his forehead with a greasy hand. This was going to suck. Big time.
Because, you know, a mad Beauty Queen isn't a good thing.
