Alright guys, heres chapter two. Enjoy.
Disclaimer: I do not own PJO
I was on my way to my new school, thinking what a waste it was to only go for a week. I could be at home finishing my designs, I'm no where near finished the supports system for the arches, and the glass roof- you know what, never mind. I was thinking that we could have waited another week to move. I used to live in San Francisco, and all of my friends were back there. Now I have to spend five days with a bunch of kids I don't know. Wonderful.
I arrived at my new school, Goode High, and made my way to the principal's office. She had called me last night and said to come in during first period, so she would be finished with any late comers. I asked her secretary if she was in, and she told me to go into her office. I walked over and opened the door, hoping to make a good first impression, and walked straight into him.
He let out a surprised grunt and fell back. I, of course, landed on top of him. I looked down and saw a handsome boy about my age, staring up at me with a goofy smile plastered on his face.
"Uh, duh... I mean, uh, hey." said the boy.
I didn't say anything. I was looking at his eyes. They were green, my favourite colour. He had really nice eyes... What? Nice eyes? What are you thinking; you don't even know this boy.
"Annabeth, is that you?" asked someone.
I looked up; there were two other people in the room. One was another boy; he also looked to be about my age, maybe a little younger. He had longish black hair, and all black clothes. He looked like he was trying not to laugh. He wasn't doing a very good job.
The other person in the room was an older woman. She was the one who had spoken.
"Annabeth, is that you?" She repeated.
"Um, yeah, that's me. Ms. Smith?"
"Yes! Oh good, your here. We need to talk about a few things."
"Um, I don't wanna interrupt or anything, but, your kind on top of me..." said the boy on the floor.
"Oh! Sorry." I said, getting off of him.
The other boy started laughing like crazy then, and I felt a little embarrassed. I felt heat rising to my face.
"S'okay." the boy on the floor said, getting up. "I'm Percy, by the way. Percy Jackson." he said, sticking out his hand. "Annabeth, right?"
I was a little taken aback by his sudden friendliness, but I shook his hand anyway.
"Yeah, I'm Annabeth."
"Cool," he said, "I should get going, so, ill see you around I guess."
"Yeah see yeah." I said, then turned back to Ms. Smith as him and the other boy walked out. "So, what did you want to talk about?"
Oh my gods, this was awesome. First she falls on top of him, and then forgets he's even there? Priceless! This is going to be a great day. Time to seriously bug Percy...
Um, wow. That was, interesting. Did it really just happen? I mean yeah, it seemed real, but gorgeous girls like that don't fall on me. Stuff like that never happens to me. The reason I knew it was real? Nico wouldn't shut up about it.
"Dude, that was hilarious. What a loser."
"She's not a loser!" I said, a little louder than I had intended to. "I mean, she's not a loser."
"Wait wait wait, what was that?" Nico said, starting to grin, "What do you me, 'she's not a loser'?"
My cheeks started to turn a little red. "Nothing, I just meant that, you know, she's new and you shouldn't make fun of her."
"Dude, are you blushing?"
"Yeah, you totally are! Oh my gods, this is awesome, I've gotta find Travis."
"No. Don't even think about doing that." I said.
I was a little worried now, this wasn't even that big of a deal, but if Travis found out, he and Connor would blow this way out of proportion.
"Yeah, I think I will tell him." Nico said.
"Nico, I swear to the gods, if you tell them, I will drown you fourth period."
Nico's face paled. We had swimming classes fourth period. I'm a great swimmer, but Nico, not so much. He tends to stay in the shallow end.
"Hey come on, Perce, i was just jokin around. You knew that right?" he laughed nervously.
"Sure yeah were." I said, shaking my head.
"And what did you mean when you said, swear to the gods? Isn't there supposed to be one god?"
"Yeah, I guess so. I don't know why I said that, it just sorta came out." I said.
"Yeah well whatever, should we get to class?" he said.
"I think ill skip until second, Mrs. Dodds told me id get detention too if I was late again, and she will for sure! I might get something to eat, wanna come with?"
"Nah, I wanna talk to Thalia. I'll see yeah in third." he said, and walked off.
Jeeze, Nico and Thalia. Now that was one strange couple. Well, I shouldn't say couple, because they aren't actually together, but Nico obviously really likes her. He's just too scared to ask her out, doesn't want to ruin their friendship.
So I started walking back to the front door, I was going to go grab a muffin or something from a restaurant down the street, when I heard someone walk out of a classroom behind me.
"Percy! Hey man, what's up?"
Travis. Oh god, I hope Nico hasn't told him anything.
"Hey Travis, have you talked to Nico recently?" I asked nonchalantly.
"I texted him last night about homework, but no, didn't even see him this morning. Why?" he said, walking the other way down the hall.
I turned and walked backwards, "Don't worry about it, just curious."
"Alright pal, see yeah later." he called down the hall, and then turned a corner.
I let out a sigh of relief, and then turned around. And of course, I walked right into her.
Sorry guys, I know that one was pretty dull, but it'll get better soon, I promise. I also forgot to say before, Percy and Nico don't know about the gods, but Annabeth does. That's it, thanks for reading!
NOW REVIEW, OR ELSE!
