You would think after our kiss in the parking lot two days ago we would be… I don't know – together or something at least?

Well apparently not.

Percy hasn't been avoiding me but he constantly has this look on his face that says he's thinking really hard and then he starts scribbling on a piece of paper.

So now I'm sitting here under the tree were we usually sit during free period. We've been here for five minutes and still no Percy, Thalia, Nico, Beckendorf, Grover or Juniper.

Well Juniper is sick and Thalia did tell me that she's going to the music room but when I asked her if I could join she told me no and looked kind of nervous and Thalia never gets nervous. AT ALL!

I was about to ask where's everyone but then I got distracted by Silena that was bouncing up and down.

"Silena, why are you so happy?" I ask her

"Nothing, nothing at all." Then she proceeds to bounce up and down with a wide grin spread over her face.

I'm about to question her but her phone vibrates signalling she has an incoming call.

"Hello?" she asks

The other person talks quite fast and sounds like they're panicking but I can't hear a word of what they're saying.

"Of course they won't let us do that it's their property!" Silena says whoever is on the line

Another pause

"Fine, I'm coming." She pushes the end call button and looks up and notices everyone staring at her but by the way most of the gang are staring at her it's as if they know what's going on.

Why can't I not know what's going on. I need to know what's going on - apparently I have this problem were I have to know what's happening and have to have information on everything that goes on around me. Not like gossip but I just don't like being kept out of the loop. According to dad, family and friends this little trait, I get from my mom.

Before I can say anything Silena has gathered up all her things and is speeding of towards the school building.

Relax Annabeth, I'm sure I'm just misunderstanding. It's probably because I had that Late Night Interview last night.

I look down at the calculus homework that I didn't get done yesterday because of the interview. Easy enough – I've done this work with Robin, my tutor, before.

Just when this whole Percy, Thalia and Silena thing clears out of my mind – Connor's phone goes off.

"Hello?" he answers

Whatever the person on the other side is saying must be good because a big fat grin spreads on his face.

"So we get to break in and steal – oh sorry 'borrow' – and you have our backs?" WHAT? Who would let them do that?

A pause, "Okay, we're coming."

"Come on Trav, we have to go do what we do best. Bye everyone."

I was about to try and stop them but before I could say anything they were running to the school building. So that leaves me with Bianca, Chris, Clarisse and Katie. They all are acting weird, besides Clarisse she doesn't have much emotion besides rage and sarcasm.

I was contemplating going after them but just as I was getting up the bell rang. Figures.

Only two more periods to lunch.


When I walked into the cafeteria I was expecting to see our usual lunch table crowded but instead Bianca, Clarisse, Chris and Katie were sitting and eating there lunch.

I walked over and sat down. I wasn't hungry anymore – everyone avoiding me has made me depressed and the only thing to eat then is ice cream but if I do that now a photo will somehow be released to the press and a photo of me looking PO'd while being mid-bite with stuffing my face is not what I need right now.

"Where is everyone?" I ask them

"Travis and Connor are uh – pranking." Katie stutters

"Nico went to the music room to find Thalia." Bianca told me but she didn't make eye contact

"Silena and Beckendorf are probably making out somewhere." Clarisse told me sounding bored

"Percy had to go do something to do with the swimming team and Grover went to go call Juniper to see how she's doing." Chris replied while looking down at his slice of pizza

"Oh okay, then – I'm going to the bathroom." I stand up and as I'm walking away Bianca's phone vibrates

"Wait Annabeth, I'll come with you. I want to grab my science book from my locker." She smiles at me and quickly catches up

"Why don't we go this way around?" She asks pointing to the left hallway

"Sure, but that's the long way around – you know past the auditorium and then the gym." I tell her probably looking quite confused

"Please? I just want to go this way. Uh, there is this guy that I want to see."

"Okay, let's go" I smile at her and she looks relieved.

On our way there she sends a quick text and I swear I saw 'Thalia' in the recipient box. Stop over thinking this! I tell myself

As we're walking past the auditorium I'm about to just walk past but I get yanked in by a thin tanned arm. For a thin tanned arm – it's very strong.

"What the..?" I get interrupted by a hand over my mouth

"Now Annabeth, I am going to remove my hand but if you scream or say a word I will get Thalia on you got that?" Silena's voice

I just nod

She removes her hand and I turn around and look at her sending, What-is-wrong-with-you? Looks

She drags me to the front row, "Just sit down, will you?" it sounded more as an order than a question but I complied

"Okay what now?" I ask her

"Just wait and see." Great now she's bouncing up and down again.

I was about to stand up when the curtains on stage start to open. What shocked me most was who was standing there.

Percy, Thalia, Nico and Grover.

Percy had a guitar and was standing in front of a microphone.

Thalia had a guitar as well.

Nico was on drums.

Grover had a bass guitar.

"I know I've been acting strange the last few days but I just want to let you know it was only so I could do this – I want to do this right so please just listen."

Then the music started to play. I haven't heard this song before.

"I wrote this song for you, Annabeth." Percy told me looking right at me. I think my heart just melted.

My heart's a stereo
It beats for you, so listen close
Hear my thoughts in every no-o-o-te
Make me your radio
And turn me up when you feel low
This melody was meant for you
Just sing along to my stereo

If I was just another dusty record on the shelf
Would you blow me off and play me like everybody else?
If I asked you to scratch my back, could you manage that?
Like yea screwed up, check it Nico, I can handle that
Furthermore, I apologize for any skipping tracks
It's just the last girl that played me left a couple cracks
I used to, used to, used to, now I'm over that
'Cause holding grudges over love is ancient artifacts

If I could only find a note to make you understand
I'd sing it softly in your ear and grab you by the hand
Just keep it stuck inside your head, like your favorite tune
And know my heart's a stereo that only plays for you

My heart's a stereo
It beats for you, so listen close
Hear my thoughts in every no-o-o-te
Make me your radio
And turn me up when you feel low
This melody was meant for you
Just sing along to my stereo

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh to my stereo
Oh oh oh oh so sing along to my stereo

Let's go!
If I was an old-school fifty pound boom box (remember them?)
Would you hold me on your shoulder wherever you walk
Would you turn my volume up in front of the cops (turn it up)
And crank it higher every time they told you to stop
And all I ask is that you don't get mad at me
When you have to purchase mad D batteries
Appreciate every mix tape your friends make
You never know we come and go like on the interstate

I think I finally found a note to make you understand
If you can hit it, sing along and take me by the hand
Just keep me stuck inside your head, like your favorite tune
You know my heart's a stereo that only plays for you

My heart's a stereo
It beats for you, so listen close
Hear my thoughts in every no-o-o-te
Make me your radio
Turn me up when you feel low
This melody was meant for you
Just sing along to my stereo

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh to my stereo
Oh oh oh oh so sing along to my stereo

I only pray you'll never leave me behind (never leave me)
Because good music can be so hard to find (so hard to find)
I take your head and hold it closer to mine
Thought love was dead, but now you're changing my mind

My heart's a stereo
It beats for you, so listen close
Hear my thoughts in every no-o-o-te
Make me your radio
Turn me up when you feel low
This melody was meant for you
Just sing along to my stereo

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh to my stereo
Oh oh oh oh so sing along to my stereo

Yeah

When they were done he was standing right in front of me.

"So will you do me the honour of being my girlfriend?" He asked breathlessly

I couldn't get the words out and I'm sure my face will break if I smile even more so I just nodded.

He looked relieved and then pulls me into a hug.

He pulls back and kisses me.

Man alive he is a great kisser!

I heard applause and I slowly turned around and saw the whole student body looking at us. I blushed and buried my head into Percy's chest.

I could feel him laughing. Then I heard his deep voice next to my ear.

"WiseGirl, they're gone – Thalia chases them away." I look up slowly and sure enough they're all gone.

"That was the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me." I tell him as I look up at him.

His green orbs have this twinkle in them and he looks down at me with a smile that's probably as big as my own.

"I'll do it all over again if I have to."

I pull him down by his shirt collar and kiss him again.

"I could get use to this" he mumbles against my lips.


"I didn't know you can sing and play the guitar." I tell Percy as we walk hand in hand to my car.

"I didn't think it was such a big deal." He blushes

"But still thank you so much – it was the sweetest thing ever." I say as we get to my car. I unlock the door

"I'll see you in a few?"

"Sure. See you later" I was about to climb in when he stopped me and turned me around. He kissed me and I responded within a split second

"I could definitely get used to this." He says as we part

I just giggle and get in my car.


When I get home I quickly change from my jeans and t-shirt to a yellow sundress that compliments my tan and white flats, I let my hair down and make sure my minimum make-up still looks alright.

As I'm heading downstairs the doorbell rings – Percy.

I rush down to the door but stop a few feet in front of it and at a normal pace make my way to the door.

I open the door and find Percy standing there grinning at me.

"Hey Seaweed brain." I tell him as casually as I can but inside my heart is pounding like a jackhammer

"Hey WiseGirl." He tells me with a lopsided grin.

I look at his outfit – blue polo shirt that hugs his biceps and abs perfectly and khaki shorts and some flip flops. He looks hot – well he looks hot in anything actually.

"So ready to meet my mom, she can't wait." He tells me. In truth I'm nervous but Percy will be there so I won't be alone.

I grab his hand, "Let's go."

He leads me to his blue Ferrari 458 Italia. Opens the passenger door for me, like a gentlemen and runs around to the driver's side.

He grabs my hand, gives me a reassuring smile and starts the engine.

Here goes nothing.


I hope that was okay for you guys – sorry I've really busy and I don't know when I'll be able to update again but please review and let me know if there's any suggestions and PM me if you need to know something.

I probably won't be able to update in the next week because I'm going away for my birthday! YAY!

Please review
