I have a wave of reviews after that update! I just want to say thank you for all your support. I was sooooooo happy when I saw that. I started to dance around my room, until my mum can and told me to stop. Thanks again for your support and patience. This chapter is kinda like filler, but not. Didn't know what to write, but eventually thought of something.
Xx Lets get this party on!
At my mom's apartment door, all my past memories of my childhood came back. The time my mom first came home with a bag of blue sweets from the Candy Store. Also, when we cooked blue pancakes and cookies for my 7th birthday. A warm, happy smile began creeping onto my face. This is my home. Not Camp Half-Blood, not Olympus. My mom's apartment. I looked back at Piper, who had managed to start walking by herself, to see if she was alright. But she was standing there, staring at me.
"What?" I asked,
"Do I have something on my face? Seriously… stop staring at me, no offence you look creepy"
Piper soon awoke from her dreamlike state.
"Oh, sorry, I was just looking at how happy you looked and seemed to be as soon as we stepped into the building."
Now, this was my turn to start staring.
"Percy… not again. You know what? I'm going to call these mysterious staring things you do: SE's"
"Was dat?" I asked, confused and muddled.
"Staring Episodes. You know when you zone out for a minu- great, it's happening right now." Piper said in an annoyed, yet teasing way,
"HEY, EVERYONE, THIS BOY'S HAVING AN SE!" Piper announced to the people we saw in the buildings lobby. They just stared at her weirdly, as we walked up the stairs.
"C'mon Percy! Say something!"
I had now realised that I had been staring at her for more than five minutes, not saying a word. I think I might have stopped breathing for a minute as well. You may be wondering why I was staring.
Piper. Yes, the girl in front of me, with fair skin, caramel hair, red lips and ever changing eyes. She was beautiful, and not in the way that was like a model. But she was gorgeous, and I think, that maybe, her beauty could rival the goddess of beauty herself, Aphrodite. Why am I thinking this? Of all the things to think of, I was thinking this?
When reality had finally caught up with me, I blushed so red I could have been mistaken for a fire truck.
"FINALLY, some ones woken up from Noddy land!" Piper exclaimed.
"Uh… Noddy land?"
"Yeah, dream land, pie in the sky, and fantasy, whatever. That's a phrase my dad and I used to use when I was a kid." Piper said with a wistful smile of her blemish free face.
"Pie in the sky… Forget it. I don't wanna know. So here we are. Apartment 12D."
I mentally prepared myself for what was going to happen. The worse thing was my mom was dead or she didn't want me now that I was no longer with Annabeth. Out of the two, I preferred the latter.
"Percy, no matter what, I'll always be here for you. That's what friends," I heard her voice crack slightly as my heart sank down with disappointment,
"do. We support each other. Now ring that doorbell. I want to meet the famous Sally Jackson and her cookies!" Piper said, the end of her sentence ending in a high-pitched toned.
"From the way you acted before, I forgot you were a daughter of Aphrodite, but you just reminded me," I told her, while rubbing my ears, trying to rid them of the now constant ringing.
"Shush!" Piper told him, while still maintaining an amusing glint in her eyes.
I rang the doorbell. Waiting. Waiting. I rang it again. Still waiting. I was going to ring again, but Piper stopped my hand in mid-action. I tried to ignore the electric feeling in my hand from the place where Piper touched. Soon warmth began to spread to my whole body. What was she doing to me?
Soon, my ADHD began playing up, I began to fiddle with my hands, however that obviously wasn't enough for my hyper active mind. Without my knowledge, thank you brain, I was tapping my foot and clicking my fingers next.
Thank god my mom opened the door, because Piper looked like she was about to kill me. I didn't know I was that bad. Was I? Oh well…
My mom just stood there, opening and closing her mouth like a fish underwater. I take it she was shocked, really shocked. I mean, I have grown taller, lost most of my baby fat and I had gotten tanner.
"Uh….mom, can we come in?"
"Percy…" When she had said the last syllable in my name, she ran and gave me a hug. Her hugs were warm, comforting and loving. The exact definition of her.
"Come in, come in," She told us repeatedly,
"Percy haven't you grown, you look so much like your father. People would have thought you were twins. And who is the lovely lady?"
"Piper, ma'am" Piper replied in a quite and, yet confident voice.
"It's Sally. I don't like it when people call me Ma'am, makes me feel old. Why don't you come in? Pauls' gone to visit his sister in Colorado. I've just finished making some cookies."
We entered my mom's apartment, looking around at all the photos she had of her and I up on the walls.
Piper and my mom were chatting away, while they walked into the kitchen I stood and stared at a picture of my mom and Paul on their wedding day. They truly looked happy and if they're, then I'm happy.
Walking in to the kitchen, my mom was telling Piper about the time I fell into the toilet. As a 2 year old. Of course, I wouldn't have done something like that now.
"-So Percy reached over, trying to get his cookie that he dropped and he just went a little too far and in he went. I took a photo of it. If you like, I could get it."
"No! No! That is most definitely not necessary mom. Thanks," I told her in a rush, not trying to sound rude, but I really didn't want Piper to see that.
"We just came to say hi and I wanted to tell you Piper and I won't be staying in Camp Half-Blood any longer. An event occur and we just wanted to tell you."
"Oh, well dear you're allowed to stay here as long as you want, you too Piper. Let me go get the cookies and we talk in the living room."
With that we walk towards the living room door.
"Thanks Sally, this means a lot to us," Piper told my mom.
It sure did. It meant a lot to me anyway.
That's it for Chappie 4 guys.
I didn't have enough time to complete the whole chapter, so this is half and chapter 5 will be the other half. There's also a surprise in the next chapter.
Please R and R!
