Percy's POV

I walked into Camp Half-Blood, smiling. I was only gone for four days, but I still missed Camp. The only thing I didn't miss about Camp is my arrogant, conceited, self centered, piece of shit, egoistic brother, Damon. He came to Camp about a year after the Second Giant War. He looked nothing like me, in all honesty. He was about three inches shorter than me, blond hair, and brown eyes. The thing was, everybody loved him. All because he went on a quest and fought the Minotaur. Please, spare me. I fought the Minotaur before I even knew I was a Half-Blood, and sorry for sounding petty but it's true. At first Damon was cool; I showed him around Camp, I was happy I had a brother. Then he started flirting with Annabeth, trying to steal my friends, and replace me as leader of Camp.

Well anyways, back to why I was out of Camp, my dad, Poseidon, sent me to go take care of 200 sea monsters around the Atlantic and Pacific that were attacking everything, some even attacked humans; Dad thought I was getting a bit bored and needed a break. He was right.

I looked around the camp, my smile still on my face. Nobody was in the cabins except for Thalia, Nico, and Clarisse. My smile got bigger.

"Hey guys!"

"Percy!" they all screamed and gave me a hug, even Clarisse.

"Where is everybody?" I asked.

They glanced at each other; and then clenched their fists.

"I don't think you want to know, Percy." Thalia murmured.

"Why not, Thals?"


Then cheering erupted at the beach. I shot a glare at Thalia, and ran towards the beach. Everybody was in a crowd around two, I think three, people, even some Olympian gods were there. Actually, the only ones that weren't there were Aphrodite, Hestia, Apollo, Hermes, and Artemis. Hmm…that's weird, all the gods that I was friends or kind-of friends with. I was snapped out of my thoughts by a familiar voice.

"I'm so proud of you, my favorite son! Congratulations!"

I smiled at that. My dad was congratulating me. I looked for him, but couldn't see him anywhere. Then I saw him in the middle of the group. Tears sprung to my eyes. Damon and Annabeth were kissing.

"Congratulations, Damon, on your new relationship!"

I held back my tears.

"What, exactly, is going on here?" I said, my voice cold as ice.

Everybody turned to me, their eyes full of shock.

"We told you; you wouldn't want to know." Thalia said.

With her were Nico, Clarisse, Aphrodite, Artemis, Apollo, Hermes, and Hestia…

I pushed through to the middle and repeated myself.

"What is going on here?" I said again, my voice still cold.

Annabeth and Damon broke apart.

Annabeth had a look of shock, sadness, and guilt, while Damon looked smug.

"P-Percy! It's not what it looks like!"

"It looks like your sucking my brother's face off." I said; venom in my voice when I said brother.

The sea surged around me, and everybody looked worried, except my dad. He tried to calm me down.

"Percy, calm down, its okay son. I'm so proud of you! You defeated so many sea monsters that were attacking!" he said, a hint of pride in his voice.

He wrapped his arms around me. All I did was look at my dad; he was making me even angrier.

"That shouldn't matter to you. I'm not your favorite son anymore, that's Damon. Right, Dad?" I spat out Damon and Dad like they were the worst words in the world.

Everybody flinched. Then the piece of shit himself spoke up.

"Hey, Percy, calm down! It's not my fault I'm more powerful and chicks dig that!"

I looked at my brother, and I laughed. I mean rolling on the floor, dying of laughter, tears in my eyes, kind of laugh.

"I won't even reply to that, because that's a whole bunch of stupid all by itself."

"Percy, calm down, please, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to!" Annabeth said, tears in her eyes.

"If you were sorry you wouldn't have done this, Annabeth. What's sad about it is, I was going to propose to you, today." I spat out. Then I took out the ring. It was a beautiful ring, a 24 karat diamond ring, but the diamond was carved to look like an owl, and there was an emerald green trident in the middle of the owl, the color of the trident looked strikingly similar to my eyes.

"It's beautiful… Percy, I'm sorry, just take me back! It's probably Aphrodite's fault, she did say she had an interest in your love life!"

"Ohhh NO! Don't go blaming me, Daughter of Athena! This is all you!" Aphrodite spat out.

I looked at Aphrodite and smiled gratefully. Then, I turned back to Annabeth.

"No! I won't forgive you, or any of you! You were my friends. I considered you family, but not anymore! I've almost gotten killed countless times for you all, and I'm happy I did, I wouldn't change that. But you won't be having me to save you again."

"Percy, what do you mean?" my dad asked, tears in his eyes.

"It means I'm done with you all. Say bye to Percy Jackson! Son of Poseidon! The Hero of Olympus!"

And with that, I ran into the sea. I wanted to get out of there, and I wanted to get out of there fast. The water could also drown out the sounds of my so-called friends calling me back. I knew my dad was following me, but he didn't know how much control I had over the water. I shot even faster through the water, and ended up in gods know where. I took off running, with the smallest of smiles on my face. I have an idea.

You guys are going to be happy to see what this Seaweed Brain can do.
