Hello! Kelly here. :3 I'm sorry I haven't been able to upload my other stories, but I kinda lost inspiration a few weeks back. But don't worry! My inspiration is back! xD However, I had tons of new story ideas and I'm bursting with excitement. This story is so far my favorite. I'm sorry if you were anticipating for my other stories especially An Unexpected Encounter, but I want to jot down my story ideas before I forget. Anyways I'm sorry about that. I hope you like this chapter because I had fun writing it.
Heh heh... this story is I think AU. So the Big Three are married to mortals (Sally Jackson, Susan Grace, and Maria di Angelo). This story can be quite confusing in my opinion, so please bear with me. :)
Anyways... ONWARD! :D
3rd Person Point of View
The three brothers and their wives were murmuring to each other quietly as their kids were waiting patiently. Hermes and his son, Travis bolted into the throne room.
"I'm Sorry My Lord," Hermes panted. "My son and I forgot about the time," Travis's head bopped up and down with agreement.
The King of Olympus, Zeus, smiled wearily. "It's ok. Please, have a seat." His wife, Susan [AN- I didn't know her first name, so I just made one up] Grace rubbed his shoulders soothingly.
Travis beamed and walked to his friends. His friends saw him and grinned.
"Hey guys. Sorry I'm late," Travis responded.
"Eh, it's ok. We don't even know the reason why we're here," Nico di Angelo, prince of the Underworld, answered. His girlfriend and her brother, Thalia and Jason Grace, princess and prince of Olympus, looked at each other and shrugged.
"Dad wouldn't tell me the reason. I even tried my puppy dog face!" Thalia complained. Jason chuckled and rolled his eyes.
"Yup, and she's the older one."
Suddenly, everyone heard footsteps echoing down the long hall. Everyone looked up. Perseus Jackson, son of Poseidon and Sally Jackson and prince of Atlantis looked agitated. Following him was the leader of his fan club, Rachel Elizabeth Dare.
"But we're perfect for each other! I even made a pet name for us! Perachel! Cute doncha think?" Rachel exclaimed. Nico and Thalia had to bite their lip from bursting out laughing.
Percy whipped his head around and gave a fake smile. "Eh. Rachel? Yeah that's your name right? Ok anyways, I'm needed right now. So can you just? Ugh!" He snapped his fingers and the guards took her out of the throne room. Her screaming was heard and echoed throughout the throne room.
Percy's mother, Sally Jackson and Queen of Atlantis, chuckled. "She's quite a handful don't you think?"
Poseidon, King of Atlantis, grinned. "He's got the looks love. I heard they even have a fan club of him!"
Percy grumbled and Thalia and Nico laughed. Jason and Travis smirked while the royal family smiled at their children.
Anxious to change the subject, Percy asked. "If I may ask, why are we here?"
Thalia and Jason mumbled. "That's what we wanna know."
Zeus smiled at his children and glanced at his brothers, Poseidon and Hades, which they nodded. He closed his eyes answered, "Well, you are all growing up, so we decided for you to… uh how am I going to say this in the most calmest way possible-"
Susan rolled her eyes and swapped her husband. "Zeus love, you're not getting to the point. The point is that you're all getting married."
There was a moment of silence. Then chaos erupted.
"But I just recently turned 17!" Jason protested.
"Say what now?" the King's messenger's son (Travis) asked his mouth wide open.
"She said you guys are getting married," a cheerful voice echoed throughout the large throne room. Standing by the doorway was Leo and his father. Leo was grinning and it looks like he is going to burst out laughing in any second. Hephaestus, Leo's father, rolled his eyes at his son's antics.
Maria di Angelo, wife of Hades and Queen of the Underworld, chuckled. "You know you're getting married too Leo." Leo's eyes popped out of his head.
"But but!" He exclaimed. Jason patted him on the back.
"It's okay man. You're not lonely!" Jason cheered and Leo glared at him.
"I'm not even a prince! Why do I have to get married?" He muttered, glancing at Maria.
She smiled. "You may not be a prince, but you are close to the royal family. And besides, you're father agreed." She grinned and Hades had to laugh at her behavior.
"Thanks Dad," Leo grumbled in response. Hephaestus grinned sheepishly.
"Mother!" Nico exclaimed. "Do I have to get married?" His eyes were so wide it should be in the record books.
"Yes Son," Hades said, smiling. "You're getting married with Thalia of course!" Thalia and Nico started to have a choking fit while all the teens were laughing.
"Oh Gods, good luck," Percy laughed. Usually Zeus would have murdered people for saying that, but Percy was an exception along with the other royals he knew well.
Travis coughed. "I'm not part of this am I?" Hermes gave a small smile.
"Yes Travis, yes you are. You and Leo have the same reason of why you are getting married. Oh my little boy is growing up!" Travis rolled his eyes but he knew his father was just making fun of him.
Sally glanced at her son. "Any thoughts Percy?" Percy looked up.
"Wait so I'm getting married with a person I don't know?" Sally nodded.
"She's the princess of Athens. Oh she's a smart one." She responded, sighing contently. Poseidon rolled his eyes.
"Her mother is annoying. Trust me, if you meet her, I swear-" His voice died down when Sally glared at him.
"Anyways…" Percy continued, feeling awkward. "That means Rachel won't bother me anymore!" He started doing his victory dance and everyone face palmed.
"Perce focus! We're getting married with people we don't know!" Nico barked. He glanced at Thalia and she was glaring at him. "Well… the others are… Heh heh heh…"
Susan and Thalia rolled their eyes. They are obviously related.
"In a week from now, we would be packing out bags and head over to their kingdom. The princesses are all from different places but they share a castle together for the summer. You along with us will be heading over there. Bond with your future wives and then you all will get married!" She clapped her hands. "Before you get married however, there's going to be a ball. Oh what fun! Now off you go!" She shooed the teens out while the adults discussed more plans.
I sighed and took out all the bags. They were a sea green colored embroidered with silver lining. I opened them and started packing. Just a week, I'll be Rachel- free… I swear, she kept annoying me ever since she laid eyes on me!
I was standing on the balcony, savoring the moment. The Sun was going down and the view was beautiful. Sensing someone behind me, I turned around. Leo was behind me, holding a water- balloon. I rolled my eyes as he cursed.
"Aw man! Why do you have to turn around? This is going to be my last week of fun until I have to deal with getting married!" He rambled on and on. That's Leo all right.
I whacked Nico with my mallet. "Nico!" I exclaimed exasperatedly. "For the last time, stop dazing off into space!" Geez, I don't know why I love him. Eeerr. Like him. Yea, I like him.
"Sorry," Nico muttered, planting a kiss on my cheek. "Why do we have to get married? I… we're 18! Isn't that young? And Bianca isn't here! God damn I wished I went to America with her for her class trip…" I shrugged my shoulders.
"Who knows? Anyways, I just gotta text from my dad. He wants me to start packing. I also need to buy a dress. Gah I hate dresses!" I grumbled and ran off with my phone with my hand. This is going to be a LONG week.
I covered my face with a hoodie and ran down the streets of Olympus. The place is bustling of people and tons of laughter and talking were heard. I ran down the streets until I spotted a friend of mine.
I waved and he recognized me. He grinned and waved. I reached up to him.
"Hey Beckondorf!" I greeted. I fist bumped him and we started walking to who knows where.
"Hey Travis," he responded. "Anything interesting happened today?"
I grinned. "Nah, just the fact that I'm getting married."
His jaw dropped and I had to laugh. So this was how our parents saw us when they told us the news.
"You WHAT?" Beckondorf practically screamed. This was so unlike him, but it was pretty understandable. After all, I was acting all… calmish.
I shrugged my shoulders. "Everyone was supposed to. I was included along with Leo. Apparently, out parents decided that we should get married as well. Traitors." I sulked while Beckondorf laughed.
"As much as I would love to help you, my parents decided to go to Paris. Family trip I guess." I frowned. At least he didn't have to get married.
"Lucky you. Starting next week, all of us have to head over to the princess's place where we hang out with our soon- to- be- wives." I cringed. Who was I suppose to marry? Will she be bad?
Little did I know, she was going to be the love of my life. Literally.
The redhead grumbled "Thanks." and slammed the phone shut. With a thrust, the phone flew across the room and there was a sickening 'crack.'
But she didn't care. She discovered some news which she obviously didn't like.
"Who are you marrying too?" She muttered while watching the sun continuing going down. "Whoever you are, you can't take Percy from me. He will always be mine."
"And that's for sure."
Aha you can probably guess who the mysterious unknown person is. :3 Who do you think he/she is?
Whew! Chapie 1 is finished! xD Hoped you like it, it was fun writing this. Anyways, REVIEW! :D
