[A/N] This is the first in a series of random one-shots, unlike my other stories it won't have a set update time.


"Hey Annabeth," I called out to my girlfriend who was currently sitting beside me on the couch in the living room.

"Yes Percy," she looked up from her book and smiled at me. Instead of responding I lifted her up onto my lap and gave her a big kiss. "What was that for?" She asked when we broke apart for air.

"Was that a good kiss?" I asked her, she raised an eyebrow at me and nodded.

"Why are you asking?"

"You see I heard that if you can tie a knot with a cherry stem using your tongue then you must be a really good kisser, but I can't..."

"It's not that hard Percy you just have to..." I started to zone out on her face. "Wait I'll go show you, she headed to the kitchen to ask my mom for a bowl of cherries. "See look," she put the stem in her mouth then after a while it came out as a knot.

"Well then miss wise girl, teach me," I leaned in for another kiss and once again we broke apart panting. "So?"

"I don't know seaweed brain, you've done better," I smirked and leaned in again. We kepting kissing until there was the noise of someone clearing their throat behind us. "Hey mom," I said with a blush from the tip of my head to the bottom of my neck.

"Percy what happened to doing homework?" My mom questioned, I knew better to lie to her since she had a wooden spoon in her hand. If I had to pick facing monsters or my mom, I would have a better chance against the monsters.

"We're going to do that now, come on Annabeth," I grabbed her by the wrist and dragged her to my room. Although we were up the stairs I could still hear my mom laugh and mutter kids these days. "Now where were we?" I asked as I pulled Annabeth in by the waist.

"Nu-uh seaweed brain, homework," she pointed to the stack of textbook on my desk.

"Teach me?" I gave her my best puppy dog look. She shook her head and grabbed a textbook. As she walked back, in one swift movement I grabbed her hand and twirled her until she was wrapped in my arms with her hands on my chest, then I kissed her, this time with tongue.

"Percy... homework.."

Ignoring her comment I spoke, "So Miss Chase, did I do good this time?" I asked her as if she was the teacher, I was the student and the kiss was the homework.

She smirked and followed my lead, "Unfortunately no Mr. Jackson, I think you need to re-do it." This time she moved her hands that were on my chest so that they wrapped around my neck. We kept doing our 'homework' until my mom called us for dinner.

As we headed towards the dining room I whispered into her ear, "You know, after you lessons I must be able to tie a knot with a cherry stem."

"Well then we just have to find that out later after you do you your homework from school," she smirked and went to thank my mom and Paul for letting her stay for dinner.
