Disclaimer: I don't own anything. Sadly.

SUPRISE AGAIN! I've come to a conclussion my mom realllllly shouldn't leave me alone at home. I've used her laptop now and been on the internet, downloaded a bunch of random stuff and oh yeah, i ate the cookies.

I am so mad right now. We hire another maid and she broke my 1.5TB external as well as my PC. Everything is gone. Including my school projects and this story, oh and a new story I was working on.

Anyway… Thanks for the reviews - Athena's Minion, jeffersonauthor, trini gyal, ScarletAndGold13, Lexia Daughter of Athena, DaughterofA106, RubySongBird, silverbite, StygiansShadow13, Magikidd, LaughLoverCrystal, The Sea Goddess, annabethrules120, fighter1357, AthenaGray15, miley, rAnDoM-LaFiNg, Crane's shadow, AnimeRoxx, Bluegirl24434.

This is going to be aloooooong chapter so that I can get everything in.

This Chapter is dedicated to The Sea Goddess for her birthday on the 20th. Because I don't know if I'd be able to update before that.

It's the morning of the dance, Thalia and I aren't going to school today because we're needed at the studio.

I have to record 'Bubbly' again and Thalia's written a song. I haven't heard it yet but she told me it isn't her usual type of music.

When we got to the studio Thalia asked to speak to me alone. That was odd, but she's my best friend so I walked with her to a secluded lounge.

We sat down on a very soft comfy couch.

"So what's up?" I asked her.

"Well you know my family situation…." She trailed off. And yeah, I did know her family situation, her parents got divorced because her mom was an alcoholic and got abusive. She went to some rehab about seven years ago.

"Yeah…" I didn't know how to reply, because I knew it was a touchy subject.

"I decided to go visit her yesterday and maybe forgive or something, you know… she wasn't there. Apparently she died a few months ago." A tear rolled down her cheek

I pulled her into a hug and comforted her.

"I know we didn't have a relationship at all and what she did was wrong but still she was my mother." She murmured into my shoulder

"I know, Thals, but you still have me, Jason, your dad and my parents - they consider you as there other daughter." I told her back softly

She raised her head with a small smile playing on her lips.

"Yeah, you're right." She was trying to wipe away the tears but ended up smudging her make-up.

"Let me help you, Thals." I took her hand and took her to the bathroom where I proceeded to clean her face for her.

After replying her make-up and making sure her eyes weren't red anymore we headed to the recording booth.

"So Thalia, you'll be going first." Lauren told us. Thalia nodded and made her way to the recording area but stopped and turned to me, she gave me a big smile.

"This one's for my mom." She told me

I smiled back at her and gave her thumbs up.

She walked over to the grand piano and started to play.

I've been living in this house here
Since the day that I was born
These walls have seen me happy
But most of all they've seen me torn
They've heard the screaming matches
That made a family fall apart
They've had a front row seat
To the breaking of my heart

(The rest of the bad started to fall in)

7 times 70 times
I'll do what it takes to make it right
I thought the pain was here to stay
But forgiveness made a way
7 times 70 times
There's healing in the air tonight
I'm reaching up to pull it down
Gonna wrap it all around

I remember running down the hallway
Playing hide-and-seek
I didn't know that I was searching
For someone to notice me
I felt alone and undiscovered
And old enough to understand
Just when I'm s'posed to be learning to love you
Let me doubt again

7 times 70 times
I'll do what it takes to make it right
I thought the pain was here to stay
But forgiveness made a way
7 times 70 times
There's healing in the air tonight
I'm reaching up to pull it down
Gonna wrap it all around

I lost count of the ways you let me down
But no matter how many times you weren't around
I'm all right now

God picked up my heart and helped me through
And shined a light on the one thing left to do
And that's forgive you
I forgive you

7 times 70 times
If that's the cost I'll pay the price
7 times 70 times
I'll do what it takes to make it right
I thought the pain was here to stay
But forgiveness made a way

7 times 70 times
There's healing in this house tonight
I'm reaching up to pull it down
Gonna wrap it all around
Yeah
I'm gonna wrap it all around

(Last part she played alone on the piano)

I've been living in this house here
Since the day that I was born

I felt a tear escape my eyes and fall down my cheek, I got up and ran into the recording area and gave Thalia a giant hug. She smiled sadly at me.

"I feel better now." She whispered to me. I just nodded and gave her one more hug before I had to start preparing to sing 'Bubbly'.


We arrived at my house at around half past three. Silena and Bianca would be here in an half an hour to get ready and then the guys will be fetching us at seven.

"Want some cream soda?" I asked

"Yes, please" Thalia replied

"You actually said 'please'?" I mocked surprise.

She threw a pillow at me, "I'm always polite… sort of." She mumbled the last part but I could still hear it.

I came back with two tall classes of green-y goodness. I gave her, her glass and fell down next to her on the couch.

"So I was thinking... maybe we should tell the rest tonight after the dance, sound okay?" I asked

"Yeah, you know I don't like hiding things from people."

We watched TV until I heard the doorbell ring. I was attacked by Silena, luckily Bianca pried her off of me.

"Silena, Why so happy?" I asked her, a little scared of her response.

"Because I saw you're make-up collection the other day and now we get to use it."

Yep, I was scared.


After three hours of pure torture - We. Were. Done…. FINALLY!

Silena had a pink V-neck dress that came out a little at her waist and stopped about 7 inches above her knee. It showed off her long tanned legs. She had silver strapped stilettos on with a 4 inch heel. Her black hair was made wavy and cascaded to mid back in long loose ringlets.

Bianca had a strapless yellow dress on that really complimented her olive skin. The dress was about the same length as Silena's dress. She had gold 3 inch heels on. Her dark hair was straightened but had her fringe pinned back so it created a medium hair bump (A/N: I hope you know what I'm talking about.)

Thalia wore a V-neck sparkly midnight blue dress that stopped about ten inches from her knees. Luckily she had long legs otherwise we would have looked like sluts. She wore midnight blue stilettos that had a 4 inch heel. She had her hair straightened and a little messed up but it looked really good and she had a silver pin in her hair to hold her fringe back.

I wore an aqua blue strapless dress, *cough* Percy's favourite colour *cough*, I had a silver sash around my waist. The dress had a little silver sequins starting at the bottom and then carrying on to my uh… chest area. I combed through my wig and just adjusted it to look a little more formal. I let Silena straighten 'my' bangs. I had silver strappy 4 inch heels on.

Katie, Juniper and Clarisse were going to be arriving soon.

We heard the doorbell ring and I went downstairs to get the door, when I opened it Katie was standing there in a light green dress and silver shoes with her hair slightly curled while Clarisse had a blood red dress on with black heels. Clarisse was actually really pretty and had a very nice body but she kind of threw people off with her attitude. Juniper had a strapless dark green dress on with silver heels.

I lead them to the living room and called Silena, Bianca and 'Tina' downstairs.

"The guys should be here any minute. I heard they decided to rent a stretch limo." Katie told me and that's just what they did, because I heard the doorbell go and when I walked past the window to open the door I saw a black stretch limo in my driveway.

I opened the door to find Nico about to knock again. I smiled at them and Nico wolf-whistled which earned a glare from Percy. I just chuckled.

"Hey guys, come on in." I told them

"Um… uh… gah" was Percy's response, but Nico nudged him, a little hard "I mean you look beautiful."

I blushed and looked at his outfit. He had a black suit on with an aqua blue dress shirt, that matched my dress perfectly, and a black tie. He also had black dress shoes on.

All the guys had the same thing but there shirts differed.

"You look quite good yourself, Seaweed brain." I told him with a smile, which made him blush.

Just then the rest of the girls came out of the living room.

"CHARLIE!" Silena squealed

"Hey Guys." The rest said all had the same time. We giggled.

"Hey can we back here afterwards, Tina and I want to show you guys something." I told them. Silena gave me an ascurring smile.

We made our way to the car. It was a short ride to school but when we stepped out all eyes were on us. I, Annabeth Chase, was used to the attention but Anne Caccia was definitely not.

Some girls glared at me, some guys actually glared at Percy, wonder what that's about, and I heard about three wolf-whistles but I'm pretty sure they're for Thalia, Silena, Bianca, Katie, Juniper and Clarisse.

A lot people came to the dance even the two new guys. They never said much but I had at least one of them in one of my classes.

After showing our tickets we headed in. The gym really looked nice. You wouldn't be able to tell that these floors were sweated and occasionally bled on.

There were banners everywhere and balloons and glitter and the lights were off except for the lights on the dance floor.

We set our stuff over by a table and the boys excused themselves to go fetch us some punch.

"So Anne, Percy looks hot, doesn't he?" Silena asked me and then winked

I took a deep breath, "yeah he does, why?"

"Nothing, nothing at all." She told me with a sly smile on her face. Thalia face palmed herself.

Just then the guys came back with our drinks.

No, no, no. They couldn't of heard me, could they?

Percy handed me a glass of punch with a goofy smile on his face.

He heard… Crap

"Let's go dance guys!" Silena yelled.

We all headed to the dance floor it was pretty big and a lot of kids were dancing.

Disco Pogo by Die Atzen Frauenarzt & Manny Marc started to play and everybody went crazy.


We were all having a great time. We've been dancing for about two hours now. I stopped dancing to get a drink and Thalia followed me.

We got some punch which I made sure wasn't spiked and greedily drank it down. Dancing makes you thirsty and tired.

We went back to the dance floor. When I got there I noticed Silena slipping away but I didn't think anything of it because she probably wanted some punch too.

After five minutes Silena came back and an evil smile on her face. Just then the fast music stopped and a slow song came on.

Be Be Your Love by Rachael Yamagata started to play. Everybody started to pair off.

I felt a tap on my shoulder when I turned around I found Percy rubbing the back of his neck with his hand.

"Would you like to dance?" he asked me with a slight blush.

"I'd love to, Seaweed brain."

He put his hands on my waist while I put mine around his neck.

"I just want to tell you that you really look beautiful tonight." He whispered in my ear, it gave me chills. I started to blush and had a small smile on my face "and that I like you. I really like you Anne." I felt really guilty about the Anne part.

"I like you too, Percy." I whispered.

Only then did I notice that we moved closer. Our lips were only a few inches away. We both started leaning closer.

He closed his eyes so I closed mine too. Just when our lips were about to touch I felt a tug on my hair and right when I was supposed to feel the pain of my hair being yanked I felt my real hair cascading down my back.

Everything happened in slow motion. Rachel had a look of surprise on her face while holding my wig and Percy looked at me with hurt written all over his face.

"Well that explains a lot, I should've –" Thalia started

"Thalia, no." I cut her off, a few more people gasped.

"I so knew who you were." Travis said

"No, you didn't." Connor told him and Katie slapped Travis's head.

All of a sudden the two new boys grabbed me and Thalia and dragged us away.

"WiseOwl and ElectricBlue are safe. I repeat, WiseOwl and ElectricBlue are safe." The guy carrying me said while having his finger pushed on his ear. Comm unit.

They took us to an empty classroom because most people would try looking for us in the parking lot.

We have been waiting for five minutes now when we heard people running.

Next thing we know Nico, Silena and everybody's walking into the classroom. Except Percy.

"This is what we wanted to show you tonight." I whispered not making eye contact with anyone of them.

"It's okay, it's not the best way to have found out but at least we know now." Nico spoke up and he didn't take his eyes off Thalia.

He took three strides and he was right in front of her, he lifts her chin so she was looking right at him.

"Still like you, for you." Nico whispered to her, she gave a small smile and then hugged him

"Awwwh!" All the girls said softly.

I got up and made my way to the door and walked out into the deserted hallway. I was walking to the back of the school were I knew Argus was waiting.

As I rounded the corner I almost walked right into Percy. He looked at me and spun around.

"Percy! Please! I'm so sorry!" I yelled after him, he stopped.

"I can't believe I actually liked you. You lied to me." He yelled back and then spun around to face me.

I was getting angry now, "Well sorry that I wanted a normal life. That I just wanted to be liked for who I am, not for the money or the fame but for me, Annabeth Chase!"

"You're just saying that so that I'll feel sorry for you! But you're just like the rest of those famous douchebags! You're selfish!" he was raging now.

I was so shocked and hurt at what he said that I didn't even reply, he walked away but I stayed right where I was.

Thalia came around the corner about a minute after he left.

"I heard yelling, are you okay?" she asked me softly

I shook my head slightly and started to walk to where Argus was. Thalia followed.

We climbed into the black BMW and Thalia put her arm around me and wiped a tear off my cheek, I didn't even know I had been crying.


I slept till noon which was really not like me. When I went downstairs I found my mom drinking coffee at the kitchen table.

"Mom?" I asked slightly confused

"Oh honey, I heard what happened. Are you okay?" she asked me while hugging me

"Yeah I'm fine, just hope everybody will forgive me." I told her

"Well how about you go to the living room and I'll bring you something to eat." She told me with a smile.

"Thanks mom" I hugged her again and went to the living room but when I looked up Thalia, Katie, Juniper, Selina, Bianca and even Clarisse were all there in pajamas, just like me.

Selina had a make-up kit in her hands, Bianca had popcorn, Thalia had movies, Katie had a pillow and a few at her feet, Juniper had a box of tissues and Clarisse had some candy.

I ran up to them and gave them a big hug. Just then my mom walked in with a big tub of ice cream and seven spoons. She set the ice cream and spoons down at the table, winked at me and left.

I love my mom and my friends.
