Summary: Percy Jackson had always been a loner and outsider. Though this time, in this school, everything promises to be the slightest bit different. Because he has friends. They are still outsiders, but together that doesn't sound half bad. The only problem is that handsome jock and so-called Ghost King of the school. Or more so, the social gap between them... Which needs to be changed.
Welcome to Olympus High
Of Jocks and Cheerleaders
8. Lesson: Rivaling Groups
Percy grinned lazily, stretching some on the blanket. The days was sunny and lazy, at least so far. Drama classes with Mister Dionysus were more for fun than anything and math had been very nice for his nap. So now it was noon, time for lunch and trading stories. Malcolm and Rachel had been more than curious to hear every little detail about the try-outs. The only one looking less than pleased by this was Octavian. He kept eying Percy in that odd way that made the green-eyed boy shiver. And not the nice shivers. No, the blonde had quite the angry glare going on.
"What's your problem, Tavy?", murmured the black-haired boy into the blonde's chest.
"I don't answer stupid questions, Percy", grunted the taller boy, shifting some.
He tried to smooth Percy's skirt down some more with his hands. Partly so others won't get to peek beneath it and mainly so he could caress the nicely formed ass of the younger boy. Though then the green-eyed teen sat up to glare down at him, bringing too much distance between Octavian's hands and Percy's ass. Way too much distance.
"You calling me stupid?", growled the black-haired boy.
"I... What?", blinked the blonde surprised. "No."
"Well, it sounded that way", pouted the younger boy, crossing his arms over his chest. "You know, first you're being all grumpy, then you're calling me stupid. I think I've had enough of that for now. Annie? How about we go a little earlier to our very first cheerleader meeting?"
The blonde girl, engaged in a heated discussion with Rachel, looked up to blink a few times. Though looking from the Brit over to the pissed American made her decision quite easy. Nodding hastily, she stood to follow Percy over to the fields to wait there for their first training. Their friends looked after them for a moment before turning to glare at Octavian.
"What are you looking at me like that for?", huffed the Brit annoyed.
"Because Annabeth and Percy had been all giddy about this and all you did was glare", grunted Rachel, her arms crossed in front of her chest. "And then you insulted Percy. You know he always takes it quite personal to be called dumb or stupid."
"It's not my fault that he is looking too tempting in that outfit", growled Octavian with a dark glare. "It's like everybody keeps staring at his ass and I do not tolerate that."
"So... You're jealous?", grunted Malcolm and raised one eyebrow. "I thought you're not interested in having a serious relationship? Then how come you're jealous?"
The Brit gritted his teeth and stood. "I have homework to do. See you later."
Jason was grinning broadly as he kept doing his lapses. One reason for that was his nearly dead best friend, who kept running next to him, though looked like he was going to collapse any second now. Another reason was that his very beautiful girlfriend was training on the football field today, which meant whenever he finished one round, he got to see her. And damn, she was hot when she was all concentrated and fighting against Clarisse. The fighting club often trained outside when the weather allowed it. Mostly since Clarisse and Silena were best friends and the two captains loved to gossip (not that Clarisse would ever admit that) in between their training sessions.
"Less drooling, more running, Grace", ordered Nico with a very irritated glare.
"How about you turn your head to the right and drool yourself while leaving me alone?"
The Italian frowned for a moment before doing as his blonde friend suggested. Jogging along through the grass field and toward the bleachers were Annabeth and Percy. Though Nico's mind only unregistered the girl on a side-note. What was way more important was the way Percy's skirt flipped up with every step he took and the way his hair waved in the breeze.
"Don't choke on your drool, di Angelo", snickered Jason amused.
Dark eyes were rolled at him. "Okay, take five minutes to reanimate Valdez and Zhang."
Groans of relief could be heard as the captain of the football team rolled his eyes again and made his way over to the bleachers, where some of the cheerleading squad was already sitting. When he had gotten to training, he had to watch Percy being all cuddly with Simmons, who had his hands where they really did not belong. And yesterday, Castellan had kept flirting with Percy too. It was time to remind Percy who exactly was the best catch for him.
"Hello, guys", greeted Percy as they reached the bleachers.
Only four cheerleaders were already there when they arrived. The blonde leader, Silena if Percy recalled that correctly, the native American Annabeth was fancying, the mocha-skinned tomboy and the golden-eyed girl with the chocolate skin. It reminded Percy how much he hated being the new kid. Everyone knew each other already, had a history, had inside jokes about teachers and knew all those little secret places on the school yard. But at least, this time he already knew someone. Grabbing Annabeth's hand out of reflex, he linked their fingers.
"Pand—Percy! And Annabeth", smiled Silena, clapping once in excitement before sitting up some. "Let me introduce everyone, okay? These are Piper McLean, Nyssa Black and Hazel di Angelo."
Percy waved, for the first time this week feeling a bit shy. He had committed to this group, after all. He would be spending much time with those people and it was kind of important for Percy that they'd like him... It was all he had ever wanted. Being accepted, being liked. When he had been a little child, no one had wanted to do something with him. He had been that slightly awkward loner, the one that rather spend all day in an aquarium than with other people. He liked to think that he wasn't good with people. And he had kept believing that until he had first met Grover. The brunette was the first to not treat him like a freak, he was not bothered by going with Percy to the aquarium or a lake to spend time with him. And then Grover had introduced him to Annabeth and Malcolm at first. It had been odd for Percy, at first he had mainly been jealous because his only friend had other friends and he had feared they would snatch Grover away from him. Which was a ridiculous thing to fear. Especially after meeting the two clever kids. Grover had told him that he had gotten extra tuition from Malcolm the year before Percy and Grover had met. Somehow the green-eyed boy really had managed to befriend the two blondes, even though he wouldn't have thought that possible. And then, when Percy and Grover had gotten kicked out of school, they went to different schools. The brunette went to the school where Malcolm and Annabeth were already enrolled, because Grover's uncle was the headmaster there (he had also been the one to recommend Malcolm as a tutor). Grover and Percy still stayed in contact over the school year, even Malcolm and Annabeth often contacted the green-eyed boy, which had made him feel so very good. Because he had for a long time feared that Annabeth and Malcolm were only friends with him because of Grover, but they seemed to genuinely like him. Though when the three had started to plan a summer vacation with their new friends from school, he had been more than surprised to also be invited.
That was when he had first met Juniper's best friend Katie (he had met Juniper herself quite a few times already, she was his best friend's girlfriend after all) and Rachel and Octavian. Percy blushed slightly upon remembering the last one. Over the last two years he had learned to accept the fact that some people truly seemed interested in befriending him, but Octavian had been the very first person to show interest in him. In a very, very different way.
"Percy? Percy, you're spacing out again. You and your ADHD", chuckled Annabeth's voice near his ear. "Come on, let's sit down for now. Silena said the training doesn't start for another quarter."
Percy nodded slowly and took a seat together with the blonde. His eyes turned wide upon seeing who was sitting right in front of him. Nico di Angelo, having one arm wrapped around the golden-eyed girl. Oh, right. Hazel di Angelo. That must have been his sister.
"Hello, Nico", smiled Percy softly.
"Hey, Percy", nodded the Italian, turning some to look at the other boy.
"You two already met, mh?", asked Hazel curiously.
"Well... uh...", stuttered the green-eyed boy and blushed furiously.
"That looks like it's going to be an interesting story", noted Nyssa with one raised eyebrow.
"After Drew had been so mean to him in the dining hall, I went to his room to apologize", replied Nico and rolled his eyes, though causing Percy's eyes to widen even more and blush the most furious red possible. "But I forgot to know and caught Percy naked, in the act of getting changed. It was kind of embarrassing. That's it."
Relief filled Percy at Nico's little lie. He turned soft eyes to the Italian and nodded grateful. Nico grinned at him, returning the nod. Then the olive-skinned boy leaned in, resting one hand on Percy's knee for support (even Percy knew that it wasn't, but he really didn't mind the skin-contact).
"Yes?", asked Percy in a slightly high-pitched voice.
"This outfit looks really good on you", smiled the Italian. "It... compliments your best traits."
"And which traits would that be?", wanted the green-eyed boy to know.
Percy scooted forward some, causing Nico's hand to slit up too. The green-eyed boy shuddered a little as the Italian started to draw little circles on the inside of his thigh with his thumb.
"You really need me to tell you?", whispered Nico in a dark, low voice.
"I'd just like to know what interests you the most", smirked Percy with a wink.
"Everything", replied the Italian, his eyes darkening some more as he leaned even closer, until his lips were nearly touching the skin of Percy's ear. "But the outfit shows off your lean stomach, where I would love to lick some whipped cream off, your very amazingly long legs, which would look extremely good wrapped around my waist, and you ass... Though telling you all the things I would like to do with that would take way too long. I should get back to training."
Wide sea-green eyes stared after the team-captain as we walked back to his own team, waking them from their nearly comatose state to get back to work. Percy gulped hard and blushed even harder.
"Percy? Perce, are you alright?", asked Annabeth next to him worried. "What did he say?"
"Look at his face. I for my part have a pretty good idea what Nico said", chuckled Piper.
"Does he always walk around, saying... saying... saying things?!", yelped Percy embarrassed.
"I apologize for my brother", smiled Hazel strained. "He's not... good at such things."
"You don't say?", snorted the male cheerleader, crossing his arms over his chest.
"What Hazel tries to say is that Nico never had something serious before", grunted Nyssa next to the youngest di Angelo. "So he's not good at leaving more than a 'let's go behind the bleachers so I can fuck your brains out'-impression. Give him a bit time, perhaps he'll be more gentleman then."
"So... What you're saying is that he's a playboy?", blinked Percy a bit displeased.
There was about a minute of silence between the cheerleaders before Annabeth snorted. "That's what we've been trying to well you since you got here, Percy. You know I'd rather see you with Tavy than with di Angelo. I don't want you to become another nick on his bedpost."
"My brother isn't like that!", defended Hazel with angry eyes. "And Simmons is quite the playboy himself! I've seen him charm everyone he wanted into bed with his Britishness too!"
"How about both of you calm down?", smiled Piper amused. "And we let Percy decide for himself who he wants to be with. Let's just agree that he doesn't get together with Castellan."
"Agreed", chorused Hazel and Annabeth and nodded hastily.
"Why?", blinked the green-eyed boy a bit stunned.
"That is simple", replied the head cheerleader, leaning in to create a secretive atmosphere. "Because he is bad news. You've seen his scar? And that his co-captain only got one eye?"
"That happened during a game", nodded Percy slowly. "That's what Rach had said."
"Oh yes, it did happen during a game", nodded the beautiful girl. "Though the reason why it happened was less the game than more the fact that Luke had been dating his co-captain back then. And had slept with the captain of the other team. So when Ethan, the co-captain, had found out, he was furious and lacking concentration. The couple had fought. During the game. Which had led to so much disrupt that in the end, half the players had been hospitalized."
"It had taken Alabaster, Ethan's best friend, months to mend his broken heart", sighed Hazel sadly.
"Well... Everyone makes a mistake once in a while", mumbled Percy thoughtful. "I don't know Luke, so I won't judge him on what he had done wrong. There are certainly also plenty of things he did good. I don't like taking other people's opinions. I like to see for myself."
"You should not have said a thing, B—Silena", sighed Annabeth and shook her head. "Telling Percy that something is off-limits is like wrapping it in glittery paper, tying a ribbon around it and laying it under the Christmas tree... It only makes him want it more."
"That's quite unhealthy, Percy", noted Hazel worried.
"Naw, it's more fun that way", grinned Percy and shrugged.
"Though you really should stay away from Castellan", warned Piper him. "We're the cheerleaders. We kind of go hand in hand with the football team and since there is this... feud between the footballers and the hockey players, we side with the football team. With our friends."
"With your friends", corrected Annabeth with one raised eyebrow. "I don't want to have anything to do with this childish war between the jocks. If they have to have their own civil war, it's their thing and certainly not mine. I'm Switzerland."
"You know, you do look quite German, with that whole tall, blonde you have going on there", grinned Nyssa amused. "I'm sure you'd look good in a dirndl."
"Switzerland is not part of Germany", snorted Annabeth and rolled her eyes. "And gray eyes aren't very German, they're more Russian."
"You really are a knows-it-all", chuckled Nyssa amused.
The blonde stiffened slightly and glared, biting her tongue. Piper glared at her friend, elbowing her.
"Nyssa didn't mean it like that", said the native American. "She meant that she normally always sleeps during Geography lessons. She wouldn't be able to point out where Europe is to begin with."
"Oh, shut it!", yelped Nyssa, blushing a bit in embarrassment. "Besides, you always sleep during our music lessons, so you have no right to judge me!"
"Oh, please", snorted Piper defensively. "Everybody sleeps during music lessons! Even Mister Hypnos himself."
"Have you seen Mister Hypnos? He always sleeps!", countered Nyssa, rolling her eyes.
"Not true", interrupted Annabeth with a serious face. "He's wide awake during lunch."
She cracked a smile as the other cheerleaders started laughing. It felt as if a huge weight had been lifted off her shoulders. They weren't really bad to hang out with actually.
"While you keep talking about teachers I haven't met yet, I go and... check something out", grinned Percy, patting Annabeth's back. "Be right back."
Annabeth's eyes widened. Just because they weren't bad to hang out with didn't mean she could stay alone with them! She was feeling naked enough in that outfit, but being kind of alone with Piper?! But her friend was already far off. That boy could run. She sighed.
"So... Annabeth...", started Piper awkwardly, a bit pink around the nose, rubbing her ribs where Nyssa had just elbowed her. "Uh... Where did you learn to dance like that?"
"Bonding time with Percy", snorted the blonde and shook her head. "When Grover first introduced us, he wanted us to bond. So that useless tree-kisser enrolled us in a cheerleading dance class."
"But you're good", noted Silena. "You should be glad he did that. It would have been a waste of talent for you to only hide behind your books. You're pretty, you should tease others with that."
"What a motto is that?", grunted Annabeth with one raised eyebrow.
"You only say that because you've never done it before", grinned the captain mischievously. "Believe me one thing, girl. Teasing is the most entertaining and amusing thing on this planet."
Annabeth turned only the slightest bit so she could see Piper out of the corner of her eyes. The way the native American was blushing and averting her eyes... No. That was ridiculous. This whole cheerleading already went straight to Annabeth's head. There was no way Piper would have been turned on by her dancing. Not someone who could bend her own body in such ways... Oh, how long had it taken Annabeth to get those images out of her dreams after the last championships?
Nico was just in the middle of telling his team that they would train until midnight today if they wouldn't get their act together soon when he felt a hand on his shoulder. Frowning a bit, he turned to see who wanted something. He was only slightly surprised when he saw Percy.
"Hey", nodded the Italian slowly. "You... want something?"
"Just wanted to tell you something", grinned the green-eyed boy and leaned in, brushing Nico's ear with his lips just the slightest bit. "I have some toys way bigger than what you saw. And you are not going to see what I can do with those toys. Oh, and by the way, you don't need whipped cream to lick it from my skin, because I taste sweet enough as it is. Like strawberries, I've been told."
Nico's eyes were short of popping out of their socket, his mouth dry as the desert. Percy next to him chuckled amused and left with slow steps, winking at him for a last time.
"Two can play that game, di Angelo", smirked the green-eyed boy.
He gave his hips an extra sway, just to tease Nico some more. The Italian blinked stunned.
Percy grinned broadly as he walked away from Nico again. If the handsome Italian really thought he could wrap Percy around his finger with some dirty words. He wouldn't become another trophy for a playboy. If Nico truly wanted him, he'd have to fight for it and do a bit more.
"Percy! Percy, wait up!", called someone.
Percy, half-way between the football team and the cheerleaders (where he could see Rachel, Malcolm and Octavian sitting, though with quite some distance to them), turned around again, thinking that Nico wanted to add something. Though it was Luke Castellan, running up to him from the farthest end of the football field. It was good the field was that big, Percy had already spotted four different clubs training here this noon.
"Uh, yes, Luke?", asked Percy politely.
"You remembered my name", grinned the handsome blonde as he stopped next to him.
"Of course", smiled the younger teen. "So... You want something?"
Luke smiled at him in a charming way, resting one hand on Percy's upper arm. "You're cute."
"It seems that way", chuckled the green-eyed boy amused. "Everybody seems so keen on telling me that, at least. Not so sure though."
"You are cute", nodded Luke amused. "I want to go on a date with you."
Percy blinked, too stunned to talk. Octavian was very much into the whole touching and making out stuff, though not ready to commit or get serious. And Nico seemed quite unsure how to deal with the fact that he wanted Percy. But Luke just... asked him out of a date?
"A date?", blinked Percy dumbfounded. "With me?"
"No, with the tooth fairy", chuckled Luke and rolled his eyes. "Of course with you, cutey."
Percy bit his lower lip and blushed once more, unsure how to react. He had never been on a proper date before. And he didn't even know Luke.
"Percy. Beauregard wants you go get back so they can start training."
Percy blinked again, turning to the voice of his blonde somewhat lover. Octavian jogged over to them from the bleachers, glaring at Luke dangerously. He practically oozed jealousy.
"Percy! I wanted to ask you something!", called Nico's voice, coming closer from the other side.
Sea-green eyes took a look around at the three handsome guys circling him. Luke's grip on his upper arm tightened only the slightest bit. Not that it hurt, just as if the blonde didn't want him to run off to one of the other two boys. Nico too glared at the hockey jock.
"Castellan, how about you let go of him and return to your team? I wanted to talk to Percy."
"How about both of you get back to your teams and let Percy return to his own training?"
"How about you two get lost since I've just been talking to Percy?"
The three teens were eying each other critically, with hateful eyes. Percy could practically hear the High Noon music playing in the background, as well as the gritting of teeth.
"How about the three of you just drop your pants and measure them?", chuckled Percy amused before turning back toward the cheerleading squad. "I really should get back to training though. Talk to you later, Nico? And Octavian, I'll be seeing you after training. I'll give you an answer later, Luke. Now be good and don't rip each other's heads off, yes, boys?"
The black-haired boy shook his head in amusement while running back to the girls, making sure to make his skirt flip and his hips sway, effectively drawing three pairs of eyes to him.
"Stay away from him, he's mine", growled Octavian darkly. "I've had him first."
"As far as I've heard it", smirked Luke. "You haven't had him. And if you didn't get to tap that ass after two months, I suppose he's fair game."
Nico raised one eyebrow. He hadn't known that piece of information. Though it went right down to his groin. The thought that Simmons had already gotten to enjoy that ass had bothered him immensely. Though he wasn't quite sure why. It had never bothered him before whoever had done whatever with his conquests. But something about Percy Blofis was different.
"For once I have to agree with you, Castellan", grunted Nico with a self-confident smirk. "And I am pretty sure to win this game. The prize is certainly worth the fight."
"Over my dead body, di Angelo", snorted Luke and shook his head.
"Don't tempt me."
"Three guys? Seriously?", snorted Piper ridiculed, staring over at where Octavian, Nico and Luke stood, all with their arms crossed over their chests and dark glares, staring at Percy's ass.
"Percy's charm is hard to deny", grinned Annabeth next to her amused. "And part of his charm is that he is not even really aware of it. I mean, seriously, he certainly thinks it's cute how they behave, but I'd bet with you that he doesn't even realize just how serious those three are."
"That's ridiculous", snorted the native American, doubling over in laughter, holding onto Annabeth. "I mean, how blind does a guy have to be to not see that? They're all in full-blown predator-mode!"
Annabeth giggled, holding her stomach. "That's the great mystery of Percy Blofis. The boy is downright thick when it comes to such things. He's cute and lovable and all, but he absolutely doesn't realize when someone likes him. When we first became friends, I practically had to spell it out for him. No idea why he can't believe that people like him."
The two girls slowly calmed down again, both still chuckling a bit as they straightened again, only then noticing just how close they really were. There was a moment when they nearly got lost in each other's eyes, just to be interrupted by Drew, who announced the beginning of the training...
