Percy Jackson: Living with the Olympians
Chapter 4- The irresistibly cute Percy
Percy was now a year old. Now, as you know, babies, or toddles, will be irresistibly cute at this age.
And Percy was definitely cute.
With messy black hair and sea-green eyes, nearly all the gods fell for his looks. With one look, he would melt the gods. Even tough Ares fell for him, and there were some rather…embarrassing moments between Ares and Percy, such as when Percy hit Ares's head with a hammer. And Ares didn't mind, which was rather weird for a war god to just simply dismiss something like that.
By the age of 2, Percy could talk and walk and do his specialty, the Percy Jackson puppy dog eyes, or called the PPDE.
If you had seen Percy's puppy dog eyes when he was asking for money, you would have immediately given him all of yours.
And this, my dear readers, is how the great thieves-music prank started.
It was all just a normal old day on Mt. Olympus. This day was candy festival, which should not be normal, but since it happened nearly every day, it was normal.
On candy festivals, the extremely irksome, vexatious, annoying and immature gods would go on a sugar rush, while the more mature gods would be puzzling over how stupid their 'relatives' could be.
All was going fine, until Zeus, the all-supreme-leader-of-the-gods burst in, wearing an angry expression on his face. So it was predicted, by all the other gods, that he was going to have a rather….. Loud temper tantrum.
"WHAT IN THE WORD OF MY PINK BOXERS IS GOING ON HERE?" He asked, his face turning red.
The more mature gods snapped their heads towards him, raising their eyebrows at his comment. However, the immature gods were too busy scarfing down candy to notice Zeus's comment about his pink boxers. Now, Zeus does not like to be ignored, so gods not listening to him was the last straw.
"ENOUGH, THERE WILL BE NO MORE CANDY UNTIL YOU GUYS LEARN TO RESPOND TO THE ALL-SUPREME-LEADER OF OLYMPUS!" Zeus roared, his face now turning crimson.
With a 'snap' of his fingers, all, I mean ALL of the candy in Mt. Olympus disappeared. Everything. Except for Apollo's bag of candy, which Zeus had 'somehow' forgotten to get rid of Apollo's candy.
When Apollo realized that his bag of candy was still full, he snapped out of his candy trance, whistled innocently, and teleported out of the room, leaving the gods bewildered by his sudden disappearance.
"Why did he leave?" Artemis asked everyone else.
They just shrugged and gloomily resumed their work, their thoughts intoxicated with candy.
The next day, everyone managed to get along just fine, but when they discovered that they couldn't just snap their fingers and make candy, they got angered. Even in the mortal shops, every piece of candy they touched disintegrated. All except for Apollo's candy.
In the next council meeting, Apollo decided to flaunt the fact that he still had candy. So when the others sat, listening to Zeus's speech of how ridiculously awesome he was, he loudly unwrapped a piece of candy, and chewed it, making sure to go: "Mhhmmm! That tastes good!"
That was by far the biggest ever mistake. All heads snapped towards him, looking at him hungrily. Even the more 'mature' gods were itching for some candy, and they slowly inched their way towards him.
Zeus didn't notice; as he was too busy boasting about his supreme awesomeness.
They came closer, and closer, and closer, until they came so close they could just about reach and grab a piece of candy out of the bulging sack…..
And ZAP! They were all thrown back into their seats. Apollo must have put some kind of special protection so nobody would come and steal his candy.
Zeus shot a dirty look at the gods for 'interrupting' his speech, but cleared his throat, and continued. At this point Apollo's chewing was so annoying that all the gods were dying to beat him up to a pulp. Even Hermes wanted to do that, because he longed for candy. He longed for that sweet, sugary taste in his mouth…..
Hermes growled out loud. He had to find a way to get that candy. It was his precious. It was HIS.
Slowly he started thinking of a plan to get his precious candy. His eyes inched to Percy, who was sitting next to Poseidon. A grin spread over his face.
Ahhaaa…..Hermes smirked. He had to best idea ever. He knew what he was going to do.
After the meeting was adjourned, most of the gods stayed in the room, their eyes transfixed on Apollo and his candy. Hermes quickly grabbed Percy, and proceeded to whisper his plan into Percy's ear.
"Okay, so you go up to Apollo and ask him for his candy. Make your PPDE, and then come back and give the candy to me. I'll give you three pieces for your service." He whispered to Percy, who nodded in agreement.
Slowly, Percy made his way up to Apollo, staring hungrily at the candy.
"Apowlloo, can I pwease have some candwy?" Percy asked, lisping in the cutest-ever-manner and doing his PPDE.
Apollo looked at the toddler and his heart melted. He didn't want to give away his candy, but Percy looked so cute he had to! It was just too impeccably cute!
"Here, have all of it!" Apollo said, holding the whole bag out to Percy. Ignoring the shocked looks on the other gods faces, he turned back to his iPod, thinking of how great he was, being so generous.
Meanwhile, Percy skipped back to Hermes, and handed the whole bag of candy out to him. He was ready to have candy.
Hermes smiled at the young toddler. Ahhh…he could use Percy in his schemes to steal stuff. Percy's ability was just like charmspeak!
He made sure to pick the best three candies for Percy, holding them out for him. "Here you go, buddy! Enjoy!" He said, looking at Percy's wide grin when he received the candy.
Hermes unwrapped a piece of candy, popped it into his mouth, and savored the lovely sweet taste. Ahh, it was good to have candy again.
After all, this was life. Pranking and plotting to receive treats. And Hermes loved his life.
