A/N: So, I've had a bunch of ideas about how Percy has to deal with Annabeth's phobia of spiders. They'll probably all be independent little one-shots, but I'm too lazy to publish them all.
P.S, I don't own PJO.
I woke up to the shaft of sunlight through my cabin window. I groaned.
"Sun, you suck," I mumbled. I heard one of my siblings snort at me, and I was about to give him/her a word beating, when I noticed something glistening in the window of the cabin. It was a spider web. I saw a dead fly caught in the strings, and one of it's legs was stuck in what looked suspiciously like a salute, unless I was hallucinating. I froze out of fear as I saw it climbing across the silk threads. It was one of those awful hairy ones that jumped really far.
That's when it all went to hell.
I shrieked, and all my brothers and sisters woke up, startled.
"Whadisid, Annabeth?" I heard Malcom slur.
"SPIDER!" I screeched again.
This jolted them all from their stupor, and they saw it in the window. In a flash, everyone in my cabin was out of bed, and pressed up against the opposite wall, as far away from the spider as possible. It moved, and we tensed. I could see its beady black eyes shining on it's hairy head.
We were at a standstill for a for the moment. Just then, the spider launched itself. Directly. At. Me. I couldn't help it. I screamed. All my siblings were shrieking too, even though it was crawling on me. I was screeching so loud that I must woken up the whole camp.
I swatted at my pajamas, and I saw it fall to the floor. This was my chance. I booked it for the door, still screaming. My family followed my lead, and soon we were all out the door. This was one of those rare times that children of Athena showed their true colors.
I ran into the first cabin I saw. Unfortunately, it housed my other worst nightmare: Percy Jackson. He groaned loudly when I slammed the door. He sat up, and his inky hair flew in every direction. I would have laughed had I not been so shook up about the spider.
Percy looked at me, and blinked hard. He rubbed his eyes and blinked again. "You're really here," he stated.
"Duh, Seaweed Brain," I retorted.
"Remind me why?" he asked.
"There was a spider in my cabin-"
"Right, and I'm Zeus. You must've come for some company," he said, laying back down, and patting the space next to him.
I stared at him in disbelief. "Excuse me?" I said.
"You're excused," he said cheekily.
I glared at him, but he didn't notice. He was staring, fascinated at the underside of the bunk above him. He turned his head to look at me, and his eyes widened. He glanced nervously over my shoulder.
"What?" I snapped.
"S-sp-spider!" he yelled, pointing behind me. I whirled around, a scream readied at my lips, but it died in my throat. All I saw was the blank door.
"PERCY JACKS-" I started, turning around, furious. I glanced around the room, but all I saw was the open window. I heard insane laughter coming from the gaping crack. I almost ripped the door off its hinges when I thew it open. "PERCEUS JACKSON! YOU'LL BE SORRY FOR THIS!" I screamed at the top of my lungs.
Gods, did I love that boy.
