Camp Half-Blood was in full swing that summer. I was running around telling the Athena kids what to do. While Percy sat back and laughed because he still was the only one in his cabin.
Clarisse had made a full recovery in less then three weeks (with the help of ambrosia) which made her even more feared over camp, that and the fact she took on a Goddess. The Ares cabin had never been cleaner.
It was early one morning I was patrolling camp, making sure the Hermes kids weren't up on and early stealing spree, when Rachel came walking across the field towards me. Waving a piece of paper.
"This is for you and Percy." She told me.
"Percy's still asleep." I told her.
"Well go wake him, I'll take over for you."
"Thanks Rachel." I said hugging her.
I ran for the Poseidon cabin and shoved the door open.
Percy was snoring (and drooling) in his sleep.
"PERCY!" I screamed in his ear.
"Mom!" Percy moaned in his sleep.
"PERCY! PERCY! PERCY WAKE UP!" I screamed.
Percy rolled over and blinked, "Annabeth? What time is it?" He asked.
I looked at the clock, "Seven."
"To early!" He moaned.
"Percy I have something for you." Percy sat up.
"What is it?" He asked.
I shrugged, "I haven't opened it yet."
Percy leaned over my shoulder wrapping his around my waist and resting his chin on my shoulder.
"Open it." He muttered in my ear.
I gently pulled the paper open.
"It's a letter." I said.
"From who?" I asked.
I scanned the letter, and smiled, "The trio." I said.
Percy laughed, "Read it to me."
"Ok," I said,
"Dear Percy and Annabeth,
I thought we should tell you, we defeated Voldemort. Well Harry defeated him. But anyway. We were welcomed home by everyone. Everyone was so worried we were all dead. We didn't tell them about the Gods. We told them we had been hiding out in the forest.
Moving on, Ron's brother died in the our war. Ron and Ginny are morning. (Ginny is Ron's brother and Harry's girlfriend) Luckily, Ron has me and Ginny has Harry.
We have to re-build Hogwarts. It will take awhile, but I think once we are done it will over all be a better place.
We miss Camp Half-blood and all of you who helped us. Tell Clarisse we miss her.
Ron says don't. Do, he is just afraid of her.
Well, I have to go, Ron, Harry, and I have to help fix Hogwarts and burry the dead.
Ron, Harry, and Hermione."
"That's nice." Percy said.
"I feel bad for Ron."
"I miss those three." I said.
Percy nodded again.
I smiled, "Percy?" I asked.
Percy looked at me, "What?" He asked.
"Was there something you we suppose to do this morning?"
Percy rubbed his head, "Uh, uh I would say no, but this is one of those girl's test that I will fail if I say no."
"Your smart. You were suppose to do patrol with me."
"I was?" Percy asked.
"Now you get to do it for the next three mornings." I said.
"NO!" Percy moaned.
"Maybe you can get out of it, if you oh I don't know, were really nice to a special girl."
Percy rolled his eyes, "I love you Annabeth." he whispered and he leaned down to kiss me. I wrapped my arms around his neck and he wrapped his arms around my waist.
"Love you too Percy." I laughed.
"So am I out of morning portal."
I laughed, "Sure Seaweed Brain."
From outside the Poseidon cabin door voices started to rise.
"Breakfast time!" Percy said rubbing his hands together.
"Come on let's go." I said rolling my eyes.
So together Percy and I headed out for breakfast. As we did I tucked the letter into my back pocket. I would have to write them back later.
Who knew, maybe I would get to one day see Hogwarts. I mean I was going to have to go to London when Hermione and Ron got married. Or was I jumping ahead to far?
I laughed to myself and leaned against Percy. What had started out bad had ended great.
