Disclaimer: Still don't anything.


I rushed into the room and quickly but as politely as possible I took the music papers from Bianca.

"You don't want to see those. They're amateur. They aren't any good." I quickly stashed them into one of the many cupboards.

"So do you guys want to play Guitar Hero?" I asked. The boys immediately forgot about the music but I could see Bianca didn't.

The doorbell rang.

"Malcolm, can you get that." I yelled.

"Fine."

Two minutes later Thalia, the Stolls, Beckendorf and Silena walked in. I greeted them and soon it was my turn to play Guitar Hero.

"Ready to go down, WiseGirl?" Percy asked me.

"WiseGirl? That's the best you got, Seaweed Brain?" I taunted back

"Whatever, I'm a master at this game." He told me

Thalia just smirked.

I heard the Stolls mutter "Five on Jackson".

Then Thalia said "Fifty on Anne."

The Stolls laughed and told her to get her wallet out.

We started playing "Hot For Teacher" by Van Halen. I play A LOT of Guitar Hero so I have pretty much mastered all songs, but the Stolls and Percy don't need to know that.

So fifty bucks later – To Thalia, of course – we were hungry so we decided to order pizza.


After we ate pizza and joked around for awhile it was time for everyone to go home. Well except Thalia, she decided to stay – which is nothing out of the ordinary for me, she practically stays with us anyway.

I curled up on the couch next to Thalia and handed her a bowl of chocolate ice cream. We started watching chick flicks.

Half way through our second movie, The Jerk Theory, Thalia turned to me and asked "Do you think they'll be mad if they find out who we are?"

"I don't know, Thals, but we'll tell them once we know them a little better, okay?"

"Okay."


The next morning I had my 'hair' in a messy bun. I put on a pair of black denim shorts and a purple shirt. I slipped on my grey ballet flats and put a little bit off mascara and cherry lipgloss on.

"Thalia, I'll pull out the car so long." I yelled upstairs.

I decided to have my BMW Z4 shipped here – I could have bought another car, but I didn't want to – why one when you have one.

I pulled the car out and put on my sunglasses. Today is quite sunny so I decided to leave the roof down.

Thalia came running out in faded short shorts, with a white shirt that had black righting on that said 'Hey you. Yeah you. No, not you. The other guy. Yes, you. You right there. Do you like Tacos?' with a pair of black ballet flats.

When we arrived at school there were a few stares, but not nearly as bad as yesterday. We got our backpacks and made our way to the cafeteria where we found everybody.

"Hey." I said

"Sup." Thalia told them.

"Hey guys." came the reply.

"Why do you guys look half dead?" Thalia asked. That girl never beats around the bush.

"We shouldn't have stayed at your house so late." Silena mumbled

"Well Th-Tina and I still watched two movies and we're fine." I told them.

I guess being a pop star has its benefits.

"Before I forget to tell you, every second day has a different schedule. So here is your schedule for today." Percy gave me a paper with everything on.

"Thanks." I smiled and he returned it.

~~Ring~~

"Come on Tina, we have art." I told Thalia while I was standing up.


"Okay class, today you are going to paint anything you want." Our art teacher told us, Mrs. Thomas

I started painting an owl. I don't really know why but they always interested me.

I heard a commotion and when I looked up I saw a very frightened Katie Gardner covered in green paint and Rachel laughing at her while holding a jar of green paint. Katie ran out of the room and before I knew it I was chasing after her.

I found her trying to get the paint of her clothes. She was crying while rubbing the paint off of her face.

"Hey, what happened?" I asked

"I bumped her by accident and she made a tiny little line that she could easily paint over, but she got mad and threw me with paint and insulted me." She told me in between sobs.

I really hate bullies.

"Come with me, I have extra clothes." I told her. This is true, because you never know when you have to change clothes to get away from the paparazzi.

"Thanks" she gave me a small smile.


I helped Katie as best as I could. By the time we were done I had missed the rest of art and math. It was time for free period and I took Katie with me.

We made it to the big tree in ten minutes. It wouldn't have taken so long if I didn't have to assure Katie that the gang won't mind.

"Hey guys, sorry I'm late but I was helping Katie here because the redheaded freak attacked her and I was hoping if it was okay if she could join us today and at lunch." I asked them

"Sure, no problem Katie. I don't mind at all" Travis told her and then his cheeks turned a slight pink colour.

"Thank you." Katie told them. She sat next to Travis and everybody welcomed her in, just like they did with me and Thalia. I still couldn't get Rachel out of my mind. How could someone be so mean.

Everyone was having fun and telling jokes, but I wasn't paying attention. I was working on a new song.


Lunch came pretty fast. I only had some cherry coke. I wasn't really hungry because sure Annabeth Chase has done what I'm about to do, but Anne Caccia hasn't.

I walked up the stage with guitar in hand and immediately everyone was watching me.

"I've been here a total of two days and a lot of people have told me about a certain someone and I've even witnessed it myself today. So this song goes out to Rachel Dare." I told them.

The whole gang was confused you could see it on their faces. Especially Percy's.

You, with your words like knives and swords and weapons that you use against me
You have knocked me off my feet again got me feeling like I'm nothing
You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard, calling me out when I'm wounded
You, pickin' on the weaker man

Well, you can take me down with just one single blow
But you don't know what you don't know

Someday I'll be living in a big old city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

You, with your switching sides and your walk-by lies and your humiliation
You, have pointed out my flaws again as if I don't already see them
I'll walk with my head down trying to block you out 'cause I'll never impress you
I just wanna feel okay again

I'll bet you got pushed around, somebody made you cold
But the cycle ends right now 'cause you can't lead me down that road
And you don't know what you don't know

Someday I'll be living in a big old city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

And I can see you years from now in a bar, talking over a football game
With that same big loud opinion but nobody's listening
Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things
Drunk and grumbling on about how I can't sing

But all you are is mean
All you are is mean and a liar and pathetic and alone in life
And mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

But someday I'll be living in a big old city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean, yeah
Someday, I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

Someday, I'll be, living in a big old city
(Why you gotta be so mean?)
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
(Why you gotta be so mean?)
Someday, I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
(Why you gotta be so mean?)
And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

When I was finished everybody was cheering except Rachel. She tried glaring at me but you could see she was to shocked to do anything.

I walked off the stage and went back to my friends. I got a few pats on the back and quite a lot of high fives.


Hope you like it. Will update next sunday again.

Exams start in 3 weeks and I still have to do my PAT in IT, but i'll try my best

PEACE. LOVE. PJO.
