Author's Note: Hi! This is my first story in the Percy Jackson section of Fanfiction! I have some more, check them out- they're in the Maximum Ride section! This fanfic was slightly inspired by Megan & Liz's song Bad For Me.
DISCLAIMER: I don't own Percy Jackson... That's Annabeth Chase's job ;)
P.S. All the chapters will be in third person this time, except on special occasions, but you'll know who's POV it is by looking below the chapter title. Plus, I decided to change the title of the story, like, two seconds ago. I like this title better.
Full summary: It was just a bet, a dare, a game. She didn't mean for him to get hurt. Hell, she didn't think he'd actually fall for her. She knew she should have listened to Thalia when she told her not to play this dangerous game. Too bad she didn't listen. Now, poor Percy was broken up beyond repair and so many of his friends hated her for it. She didn't mean to. "I can't believe this, Annabeth! Was this all just a big joke? You were playing me this whole time!"
Bad For Me
Chapter 1: Her
"Annabeth! Over here!" A pretty brunette girl waved her arms around wildly. A beautiful blonde found her and smiled as she walked in that direction. There were two more girls- one with black hair, the other a redhead.
"Hey. I haven't seen you guys in a long time. How've you been?" The blonde, Annabeth, asked her friends after she took a seat at the table.
The black haired girl shrugged. "Pretty good. I've just been messing with my cousins lately. They make it too easy. It's a nice pastime."
The redhead threw her head back and laughed. "It's nice to see you again, too. How's school been for you? I heard that you're transferring back to Goode High." She teasingly elbowed the blonde.
"I am. You wouldn't believe how long it took me to convince my parents," Annabeth replied.
"What got them to seal the deal? What'd you promise this time?" The brunette asked with a grin.
"Nothing major. I just told them that I'd watch my younger brothers for a while. . . Quit looking at me like that, Piper! It's not as if I was lying to them," Annabeth said. Piper turned her eyes away from the blonde and to the dark-haired girl after giggling.
"So, Thalia," Piper fidgeted a little, "how's Jason? Is he asking about me?" She flashed a tiny uneasy but hopeful grin and played with her messy braid.
Thalia shook her head. "He's been asking too much. If I hear one more question coming from him, I might explode. He's been pestering me nonstop about you for the past- how long? Oh, right- two weeks. We're only on summer vacation; it's not like he's been permanently grounded and can't call or text you."
Piper flushed pink, and the rest of the girls chuckled. Piper changed topics; she disliked being the center of attention. "Uh, Annabeth, which classes have you applied for? I hope you're in most of mine."
Said girl shrugged and said nonchalantly, "The regular courses- Honors English and Composition, AP Calculus BC and AP Statistics, AP Ancient Greek, AP World History, gym, Choir, Honors Chemistry and AP Physics B, Intro to Architecture, all that good stuff."
The red-haired girl gaped at her. "'All that good stuff'? You're taking higher level courses than me!"
"Rachel, sweetie, Annabeth takes higher level courses than everyone. The only ones she might see in her classes are Thalia, Nico, and me," Piper laughed.
"I get that I'm not geniuses like you guys, but I'm pretty smart too! I'm taking Level 5 Art- the highest level," Rachel smiled proudly.
Thalia rolled her eyes and replied with, "We know. You've told us since the day we got our schedules. You nearly broke my eardrum that day 'coz you were squealing like an idiot!"
"Yes, you were. Now stop arguing like 5-year-olds," Annabeth intervened. "You're starting to give me a headache. And I rarely get headaches."
Thalia and Rachel gave Annabeth sheepish grins. "Sorry," they said simultaneously.
Piper giggled. "How're your brothers doing, Annie?"
"Which ones?" Annabeth asked.
"Matthew and Bobby, of course. Who'd you think I was talking about?"
"For all I know, it could've been Malcolm or someone else. I think you used to have a crush on him, right, Rachel?"
Rachel blushed. "N-no, I didn't."
Thalia laughed. "Yeah you did. It was major puppy-love."
"Let's not have this argument again. I don't think Annabeth can take it," Piper interrupted.
Annabeth sighed and rubbed her temples. "Thanks, Piper. I just had to babysit Matthew and Bobby before coming here. They're obnoxiousness is still effecting me."
B-beep! B-beep! B-beep!
Thalia glanced down at her watch. "Sorry, guys. My cousins are coming over to pick me and Jason up today. My parents wouldn't tell me why, but it must be pretty important. I can't be late. See you guys next week." She sighed and left the table.
"Oh!" Rachel face-palmed herself. "I have to go meet up with someone from school for our art fundraiser. When you guys have time on Saturday, come by the museum. That's where I'll be. Later!" Rachel stood up and raced out of the cafe.
"Looks like it's just you and me, huh, Ann?" Piper grinned.
Annabeth scratched her neck. "Actually, it's just you. Sorry, Pipes, but I have to go help my mom with her building plans for the upcoming college. Gotta go. Meet you later?"
"No," Piper sighed. "My dad's coming home this week from that new movie he was shooting, and my mom wants me to help prepare some stuff for this huge feast she's planning. That, and she's forcing me to go shopping with her."
"Ooh, that bites. Well, catch ya at school?" Annabeth said sympathetically, knowing how much Piper disliked being pampered- unlike her parents.
"Yeah, I'll see you next week. Parking lot at 8?" Piper asked, getting up from her chair.
"Yep, same place as always. I'll tell the other girls. Thalia's probably gonna pick us up, if she gets her car back," Annabeth stood up also.
Piper waved. "Fine with me. Bye!" Annabeth waved too and left the cafe.
Time for another migraine. I should stop by Rite-Aid to grab some more Advil. We'll both need it, Annabeth mused to herself and drove back home.
Author's Note: That's just the introductory chapter for Annabeth. Next will be Percy's.
P. S. LOL, I was typing up this chapter earlier, and I put in Thalia's full name. My sister took a glance over my shoulder and asked me, "Who's Thalia Gracias?" I had a laughing fit; it was freaking hilarious.
Like it? Hate it? Love it? R&R!
