Hi! And here's the reactions! It's kind of short... but plenty funny. Haha. :)
I hope you enjoy!

- Two Out of Three: Piper's POV -
They all watched in silence as Percy strolled back up to the top deck, sword thrown over his shoulder, whistling to himself like he didn't have a care in the world. The rest were still standing in the hallway, looking at each other awkwardly—except for Annabeth. She looked kind of amused as she watched him walk away, as if she was trying to figure out what had led to this series of events.
Piper couldn't help but wonder the same thing.
Jason was standing right next to her now, blushing and looking at her out of the corner of his eye like he was afraid she might explode. Piper was about to explode, actually—but not with anger. With happiness. Jason had been kind of acting weird around her, so she'd thought he'd probably decided to go with Reyna and didn't want to disappoint her, so she'd pretty much given up the idea of she and him being a couple. But now, since Percy had pretty much thrown everything out in the open (she'd have to thank him for that later), Piper knew that he had just really been nervous about asking her out.
She was about to have an Aphrodite-style freakout right then and there in the hallway.
Hazel looked about just as pleased, looking at Frank happily, who was blushing all the way down to the collar of his shirt. She and Hazel had discussed their relationship once, when Hazel had come to Piper for help. Hazel had told her Frank was terrible at admitting things like that and that he was self conscious and pretty darn shy. She'd been a little surprised that a child of Mars would be shy, but Hazel had said he was just a big teddy bear on the inside. So Hazel had been worried about him not asking her out because he was too nervous about it. Guess that's not happening, is it?
Leo, on the other hand, was the only one in the hallway not looking pleased or amused. He had his arms folded, and frown plastered on his face as he stared at the place where Percy had previously been standing. He looked a little miffed about Percy's advice, but Piper thought that he probably needed to hear that. If she had to be the practice-girl for any more of Leo's pick-up lines, she was going to throw him over the side of the boat.
There was a beat of silence.
"Jerk," Leo huffed.
That's when Annabeth completely lost it. She leaned her head against the door frame, and started laughing hysterically. It wasn't long before Piper started to chuckle, and then was laughing so hard she had to lean against Jason for support. Hazel started laughing too, and pretty soon all of the girls were just laughing at the boys, who were still standing there, dumbstruck and embarrassed.
"What did I tell you?" Annabeth choked out, wiping a tear from her eye. "Don't bother him when he's training."
"It probably doesn't help that Leo pretty much insulted his father," Frank muttered.
Piper finally managed to control herself, and stopped laughing. She stood up straight and held her arms out to Jason, pulling him into a hug. "Don't worry," she murmured into his ear. "I like you too, Jason."
He blushed again and muttered something like, "Okay."
Hazel just took the direct approached. "Yes, Frank Zhang, I will be your girlfriend."
He turned even redder as Hazel hugged him. "Uh... duh... okay."
"I'm still single!" Leo complained.
Annabeth shrugged. "Two out of three."
Haha! Poor Leo, still the odd man out.
Dr. Love strikes again! Oh, he should just work for the Aphrodite cabin. Show up on the Demeter doorstep with Travis in tow; TRAVIS STOLL HAS STRONG FEELINGS FOR KATIE GARDENER BUT DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO EXPRESS THEM WITHOUT A PRANK AND/OR BEING A TOTAL JERK.
Anyways, reviews are appreciated. :)
