LEO VALDEZ'S POV

Oh no! Oh my dear Gods! It was coming after me I could hear it. I was breathing heavy because I have been running like there's no tomorrow (Not really. If there actually was no tomorrow I would DEFINITELY NOT spend it doing something stupid like running. I would probably be eating the biggest bag of chips known to man).

That monster was getting closer, I could almost feel the anger and hatred of the demon creature behind me. Gods, I was a dead man. Scratch that. I was a good-looking, smart, funny dead man. I was entering the treacherous forest boundaries of Camp Half-Blood. Great, I thought, now I can go and get mauled by some other monster. Well it sure as Hades would be a better death than the one waiting behind me. I saw a little tree and ducked behind it. Oops, it was a dryad. "Shhh," I whispered to it. It gave me an evil eye but I ignored it. I closed my eyes and tried to slow down my breathing. Think happy thoughts Leo, you're going to be fine, I told myself. All of a sudden I felt a knife to my throat.

I slowly opened my eyes and sure enough there it was. Piper. Damn, there was no getting past this girl. She, being the daughter of Aphrodite, was looking stunningly beautiful as always despite the fact that she was wearing ripped jeans and a camp t-shirt. Her chocolate brown hair was in her signature braid and she had a simple heart locket around her neck. I glanced at her face. Her mouth was set in a scowl. I didn't really want to make eye contact but I guess I had to. I couldn't tell what color her kaleidoscope eyes were but I knew for sure that she was going to have her famous murderous glare in her eyes, the one that says I HOPE YOU ALREADY HAVE YOUR WILL WRITTEN. I was generally the one that these glares were aimed at. In second comes the girls that looked at Jason.

"Hey, Pipes," I said weakly.

"Don't you dare try to sweet talk me Leo, or I WILL slaughter you," she said putting as much venom in her voice as possible. Wow, that girl was so scary I almost peed my pants. Almost. She could kill you and you probably wouldn't even mind because she can look gorgeous while doing so. I would ask her out but there are a few things holding me back. One, she is my best friend, so no can do. Two, she kind of already likes another guy. And three, she would probably cut my tongue off after teaching me a nice lesson about being a player by using a spear. Also she's kinda mad at me right now...

"Leo, why would you help my cabin get rid of my clothes? All I have left now are tiny dresses, really short skirts, and some REALLY revealing shirts. Oh, and let's not forget the shoes. Dozens and dozens of heels. Gods, it gives me a headache just thinking about it."

"Puh-leeze, Beauty Queen, you don't really mind. I know that on the inside you are jumping for joy. Maybe now Jason will ask you out." I really regretted saying that once it escaped my mouth. I was really hoping she wouldn't kill me. Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is to not die. Also, I would not mind a girlfriend. Preferably one that goes by the name Thalia. Oh, yeah, back to reality.

"Why you little-" she started but she was cut off.

"WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON HERE?" I heard Annabeth's voice come from somewhere behind me.

"Nothing," I said, "Just some, um, training. You know, like, swish, swoosh."

"Leo, shouldn't you be working on the Argo ll?" Annabeth asked raising her brow.

"Um, yeah, so I'll be going now," I said slowly creeping away.

"Wait, not so fast," Piper said pushing me against a tree. Hard. I think she was about to rage at me.

"Piper, let him go," Annabeth ordered, although she had an amused look on her face.

"Fine," Piper said. She let go of me reluctantly, but not before giving me another glare and a slap on the back of my head. I ran off into my cabin to avoid another encounter with the deadly Piper McLean.

PIPER MCLEAN'S POV

Gods, Leo just gets on my last nerve sometimes. Doesn't that kid know that brains are meant to be used? Probably not. It was bad enough that my cabin was in on it, but Leo too? I swear one day I really am going to snap. Leo should probably be planning his funeral right now.

To be honest, I think Leo should be in the Hermes cabin instead of the Hephaestus cabin. He displays more of their traits then Hephaestus cabin's. Other than that fire at will thing.

What was I going to wear now? I was definitely NOT wearing what was currently in my closet. I was so lost in thought I wasn't really paying attention to where I was walking so I bumped into a tall figure. I wasn't really in the mood to be polite, so typically I started to yell at whoever it was.

"Hey, watch it, you..." but I trailed off because I looked up and saw the electric blue eyes of Jason Grace staring at me.

I AM SORRY IT'S SO SHORT BUT I PROMISE TO UPDATE SOON IF YOU LIKE THE STORY. I JUST WANT TO KNOW IF I SHOULD CONTINUE! Happy Valentine's Day. Even though i don't really celebrate it or whatever.
