Disclaimer: Rick Riordan owns Percy Jackson characters and Heroes of Olympus characters. NOT me.
My name is Percy Jackson, I am 16 years old, and I am a junior at Goode High School. I don't have many friends except for Grover Underwood and then there's my girlfriend Rachel E. Dare, everyone calls her RED. Grover's never here though, he always is out doing stuff for the environment. I like to sing and write songs, I am pretty good at least that's what people tell me. I would love to be in a band and tour the world.
Beep! Beep! Beep! "Perseus Jackson! Wake up! You have to go to school!"
"Ugh mom I am up," I called back. I muttered under my breath "Jeeze."
"What was that?" She asked.
"Nothing!" I got up and took about a 15 minute shower then brushed my teeth and flipped my hair. I threw on a black V-neck, a pair of dark slim fit jeans, and some vans. I walked downstairs to greet my mom and Paul. "Morning mom! Morning Paul,"
"Good morning Percy," they said in unison. Weird. I just smiled and grabbed a bowl of cereal. I ate and then I was ready to go. "Paul, are you ready?" See Paul, my step-dad is a teacher at my school, so I ride to school with him. He nodded and I grabbed my backpack, kissed my mom goodbye and walked out the door.
When I got to school I was greeted by Rachel, I went to kiss her and she stopped me and said the three dreaded words, "We need to talk." I walked away with her and she turned to me and it went downhill from there. "Percy, we have to break up."
"Wait. What?" I asked.
"It's just not working out," She replied.
"You are a loser and I can no longer be seen with you. Oh, and you will never become famous, never." Now that is when it hurt, the breakup I got, but that hurt. I was at a loss of words so I just got up and walked away. I knew I was never going to come back, so I put on a fake smile and walked home. I loved Rachel and she just broke my heart, at that moment I promised myself I would never fall in love again.
I ran away, yeah, I ran away. I had to get out of there. I went to go find my dad in California. I never been on a plane before but it was the quickest way to get to California so I had to do it. It was a pretty long flight, I was scared for most of it. When I landed I walked out of LAX and it was so nice, the weather was beautiful. The beach looked perfect, I knew why my dad loved it here now, the beach. I also knew that I would live on the beach and well considering my dad was wealthy, that is where he would be. I got in a cab and asked the cab driver if he knew where Poseidon Jackson lived, he said yeah, so I asked him to take me there. I got there and it was a huge beach house, like huge. I immediately loved it. I walked up to the door and knocked, I waited and waited and waited. Then he opened the door and there stood an older, bigger version of me. I was so nervous. He scared me. "D-dad?" I stammered.
Yup, that's me."
"Why are you here?"
"Long story," I sat down and explained what happened by the end of the story, he looked very concerned. He didn't say anything for a minute then he spoke. "Perseus, I am going to call your mom and tell her what happened, because we both know she's going crazy right now."
"Yeah I know," We laughed.
"Here's some money, go out and get some clothes. If you're gonna stay here you might as well have some clothes to wear." He handed me his credit card, I thanked him and ran off. I got a bunch of clothes, and went to my dad's. He was smiling when I got back.
"Perseus, your mother said that she understands why you left and that it is perfectly fine that you stay here." He stated.
"Cool, but I'm not going back anytime soon." I said grinning. I was so glad she understood.
"Okay, well you start school tomorrow. I already called the school and signed you up."
"Ugh! Dad really? Already?" I laughed.
Dad came and woke me up early, he wanted me to get to school early. So I woke up and showered and got dressed in some of the new clothes I got. I put on a green t-shirt and some jeans, with green converses and a leather jacket and I was ready to go. I walked into the school about 15 minutes early and no one was there so I walked around. I walked past the auditorium and I heard a guitar and drums being played. Wow, these guys are really good. I walked in and I saw a kid with blonde hair and blue eyes, but eyes and like Thalia and it made me shiver, he had a sky blue guitar. Then I saw a pale kid with dark brown eyes and black hair on the drums. I walked up to them and said hey. They stopped their music and looked at me. The blonde spoke first, "Hey, I'm Jason. Jason Grace and this is—."
The other kid cut him off "I'm Nico di Angelo."
I smiled, "I'm Percy Jackson."
"Okay, will do." Nico answered.
"You guys are really good," I pointed to Jason's guitar. "Mind if I uh play a little?"
"Sure, go ahead." He answered. I picked it up and played a quick song I wrote. They looked at me after I finished and said in unison. "Dude that was awesome!"
"Did you write that?" Jason asked. I just nodded. They looked at each other and grinned. "Do you wanna be in our band, as you know a guitarist and lead vocalist?" They asked. I was shocked, I just gulped and nodded.
"Cool! Where can we rehearse? And like get to know each other better?" Jason asked.
"We can go to my house after school? We just have to stop at a music store so I can pick up a guitar, I left mine in New York." I said.
"Alright, awesome! Looks like you're hanging with us! We'll introduce you to our friends and stuff. You'll be fine with us dude." Nico said.
"Alright, sounds good. I gotta go to the office though to get my schedule. Do you guys have the same classes?"
"Yeah we have all the same classes, I hope you have our classes." Jason said.
"Yeah I too, let's go!"
We walked to the office and I got my schedule.
I showed Jason and Nico my schedule and they grinned and said "Dude we have the same classes." Then they turned to the lady at the desk and Jason asked, "Miss, can Percy have the locker in between mine and Nico's? It's unoccupied." She thought about it and then said sure.
