"I pick truth"
When the words left my mouth, I quickly regretted saying it.
Thalia had an evil smile on her face. Let me correct that; a psychotic smile on her face. Damn! I should've picked dare.
"Okay Kelp head. We're going to start the questions to Luke, then Nico, then Annabeth and lastly, me." She said as she continues to smile like a mentally ill person.
I gulped. Thalia's going to have her revenge on me. I guarantee it. I may not die from being dared to lie flat on the streets and wait for a car to run over me but I will certainly die from embarrassment.
I sighed and get on with it. I faced Luke as he thought of what to ask me.
"Oh, okay. Remember the time when we were in the sixth grade, you had this crush on, uh, what's her name again? It starts with the letter C…"
"Her name's Cally…" Thalia said.
"No, it's Calypso." I corrected. "We only called her Cally because we wanted to annoy her." I said as I remembered her.
"Oh yeah! Calypso. Right, anyway, you had a crush on her remember and I heard a rumour that even until now I do not know if it's true or not."
"Okay, what do you want to ask then?"
"Is it true that Calypso was your first ever kiss?" Luke grinned at me.
I blushed madly. To be honest, I did had a crush on her but that was when I was a kid—wait, I'm still a kid—and I don't like her now. I looked at everyone's reaction: Luke was grinning and waiting for an answer, Nico was well, not interested even for a second, Thalia was smiling wickedly at me and raising her eyebrows up and down and then I shifted my gaze to Annabeth. She looked awkward and kind of flustered.
"No." I said and which was the truth by the way. I never had my first kiss before. That rumour spread out when they saw me and Calypso sitting by the tree during the party. It was just all a big misunderstanding.
My curiosity got the best of me and looked at Annabeth, who somehow looked like someone lifted a very heavy brick on her shoulder. I thought why did she reacted that way but Thalia interrupted my thoughts.
"Okay then, Nico?"
He looked at me, emotionless and began to speak.
"Do you like Hotdogs?"
I gawked at him, and as a matter of fact, he looked serious while asking his question.
"Are you serious?" I said, disbelieving.
"Yes, I am. Answer my question."
I sighed and rolled my eyes, "Yeah, I guess so."
He looked at me for a while then gazed at the window. "I see. Interesting."
No, dude, YOU'RE interesting. I thought Nico couldn't possible get any weirder. I guess I was wrong.
I looked at Thalia, eyeing how stupid Nico is then shook her head. She turned her attention to me and smiled widely.
"Okay, Annabeth. Your turn."
I looked at Annabeth. She was wearing a loose grey shirt and blue pajamas. Her hair was in a loose bun and let out some of her bangs and hair fall to the side of her face. She looked refreshingly beautiful with just wearing pajamas… hold on now, what did I just thought about?
"Okay, Percy, what is your biggest fear?"
It was just simple question yet I struggled for an answer. Sure, I have lots of fear like losing my family and friends or failing Math but I can't say if those are my biggest fear. A part of me wanted to say, losing you but, wait… why did I just thought of that? Oh my gods, I feel like something's fluttering inside my stomach.
I felt my face turn warmed at that thought them shrugged it away.
"Uh, to be honest, I don't know yet."
"Really?" she said in a sceptical manner.
"Yeah. I swear. Hmm. If I do, I'll tell you as soon as I have one."
She smiled and nodded. I smiled at her. She's really pretty when she smiles. It makes me feel all warm like the sun shining down on me.
I looked at Thalia. Oh, boy.
"Well, looks like I'm the last one to torture… errr… ask you Kelp Head." She said smiling like a madcap person.
I took a deep breath. "Fine, let's get on with it."
"Okay!" she said merrily.
"So, Persues Jackson, there have been rumours spreading around the school that you have sights on a very special girl now…"
Wait, I do? How come I didn't know that?
"Well, do you mind sharing it to us who that pretty little lady who captured your undivided attention?" She said. Okay, seriously, I don't know who she is talking about.
"What are you talking about?"
"Oh, come on dude! Everyone's been buzzing about it. Ask them." She pointed to Luka and Nico.
Luke and Nico nodded.
"Wait, how come I don't know anything about this?" Annabeth interrupted looking confused.
"You don't huh? Hmmm. Interesting." Nico said
Then they looked at me. "Dude, are you going to answer or not?" Luke asked.
"I'm going to answer and I would make that rumour false."
They, excluding Annabeth, looked amused. This is getting really weird, one because they all wanted me to tell them 'just kidding! Yeah it's true' and second, Nico, who barely participates in our conversation, especially in topics such as this is smiling and nodding like telling me to tell the truth.
"Well, hmm. Okay. Let's just forget that." Thalia said which was pretty weird but there is one thing I've noticed though, she kept looking back and forth to Annabeth and me.
It was around 11:30, some of us began to fall asleep. Thalia was knocked out completely after challenging me into an eating the most hotdogs in 5 minutes. Of course, I won though. She was furious and not a little longer, fell asleep. Nico and Luke were playing my xbox but eventually got tired and fell asleep.
Annabeth, however was sitting on the couch reading one of her books and I just sat next to her, quietly. We were like that for a couple of minutes until Annabeth spoke,
"So, who's Calypso?"
"Oh, uh, she was our classmate during elementary. She was considered as the most popular girl in our school."
"Where is she now?"
"She's in Paris. Her parents got a job there so they moved."
"Oh, I see. Paris is a lovely place."
I looked at her staring down at her book. She shut it and looked at me. Her intense grey as locked its stare into mine.
"Percy, who was Thalia pertaining about earlier? How come you never told me about that?" She looked hurt which kinda broke my heart a bit. Though we've only known each other for quite some time now but still whenever I'm with her, it feels like I've known her for years.
"I told you, I don't know. I was actually shocked myself when she asked me that." I raised my right hand and promised to her that I didn't know.
She looked at me, more like examined, then she smiled. "Okay, I believe you." Which honestly, made me want to melt right there and then. Oh my goodness! I'm getting worse!
Then she did something that made me feel like I'm in the Isle of Blest. She leaned in and kissed my cheek. I think I was as red as a tomato now. Good thing the lights were dimmed. She looked at me with her beautiful and intelligent grey eyes and smiled.
I grinned at her, what? I couldn't help it. The effect of her kissed made me so… giddy inside that I just couldn't help but grinned. Then I looked closely at her and I assured myself that she looked like as red as I am.
"What are we going to do tomorrow?" She asked as she leaned in closer to me. I put my arms around her, instinctively and she lay down her head to my shoulder.
"Hmm, why don't we go down to the beach?" I said.
She looked up at me, "But isn't it cold already? Why are we going down there?"
"Nothing. Come one, it'll be fun!" I insisted her, looking down at her stare.
"Fine" was all she said. We were in that position for quite a while. She became silent and just when I thought that she was sleeping she spoke,
"Promise me that if you find a girl that you like, you'll tell me, okay?"
I smiled to myself. "Why?"
"So that I can judge whether or not the girl is right for you."
I caressed her arm. "Okay, Wise Girl. I promise."
I felt her smile and not a moment too soon, she fell asleep. I laid her down the couch and covered her with a blanket and I went on my spot and fell into a sweet slumber with Annabeth's smile on my mind.
Hey guys! Sorry for a short chapter but this is just like a part two of the last chapter so, I promise that the next chapter will be longer and more Percabeth scenes. Some one reviewed my short that it's slow paced and I agree. Haha! I'll try to make it a it fast but not too fast. ;)
Oh yeah! Percy's POV is more likely to appear than the rest because, well, I don't know really but I like having it in a boy's perspective since I am a a girl. LOL.
Great news! I'm already planning for another Percabeth story! Haha. I'll post it after this story so that WLB won't be neglected. I want to focus on one story at a time, so you guys better watch out! This would atleast have 10-12 more chapter. :D
I hope everyone enjoys this chapter! Please review it again! :)
