I don't own Percy Jackson

Chapter 3


I had been sitting under Percy's tree for five days, I had only left for meals and bathroom breaks and one time a shower. Percy was going to be healed, Luke and Annabeth had both promised and I would come down when they were right.

"Thals." Luke said. "Come down, you're worrying everyone. You can come back in the morning just sleep in your cabin for one night."

"No." I told him, leaning against the tree. "You said that it would heal him and I'm going to stay here until I see Percy again."

"Annabeth is laying in bed crying about how she broke you." I didn't move or say anything. "Thalia this isn't what Percy would want. You know that."

"I don't care what he would want right now!" I snapped. "Giving him what he wanted also killed him, I'm doing what I want for once."
Luke swallowed hard and walked back down the hill.

I woke to the sound of a thump and a small groan. Slowly I opened my eyes and looked over towards the noise to find the figure of a teenage boy laying on the ground. "Percy?" I whispered hardly daring to believe.

I quickly got on all fours and crawled over to him. I stared hungrily at his face. It was him. He was older than I had ever seen him, still my age despite his death but it was Percy. "Perce. Hey, wake up. Come on, let me see your eyes." I looked him up and down. He wasn't wounded anymore, wearing black jeans and a red t-shirt.

He groaned again and mumbled something under his breath. I couldn't help but let out a slightly hysterical laugh. He was always like this while waking up. "We made it to camp Perce. You didn't for years but you're here now, Annabeth wants to see you, and Luke come on. We all miss you so just wake up."

Slowly I saw his sea-green eyes open. "Thalia?" He croaked as he stared at me.
I had tears pouring down my face. "Ya, it's me." He was here, he was back.

"You're crying." He realized. I blushed and tried to wipe the tears. "You're beautiful." He added on.

"Shut up." I told him. "We need to get down to camp. Can you walk?" He slowly sat up then tried to stand but he was wobbly. Before he fell I grabbed his arm and wrapped it around my shoulder. "Come on, we have to go tell Chiron that you're here."

"Whatever you say, Ozone."

I laughed as we started walking. "You're here, you're really here."

"IT'S A MIRACLE!" He suddenly shouted at the top of his lungs. I jumped so hard I almost dropped him.

"Jeeze fish brain, you want to be rolling down the hill? I almost dropped you."

Suddenly he stopped walking and I turned to look at him. "You know what? I do want to roll down the hill." He said with a smile. "Sounds fun." I laughed and let him lay down. "You are so stupid."

"Be stupid with me." He suggested. Percy was back and all I could think was, 'why not?'
