Chapter 1: Annabeth p.o.v.

(A/N: VERY IMPORTANT TO READ! This takes place after the 2nd giant war so Percy and Annabeth still get nightmares about tartarus. Only they can help each other sleep or get out of the 'phase' (Phase is like if they are in the nightmare but they are awake) Also Paul and Sally are married.)

"Annabeth Chase please report to the Headmaster's office," Mrs. Norm said, sticking her head into my dorm. I go to all girls' boarding school in New York. all girls have their own dorms to stay overnight. All the teachers are females as well, so emphasis on the "all-girls".

"Yes Mrs. Norm, I'll be right there," I said, sighing. What does she want this time? I've been called into Mrs. Anthony's - the Headmaster's - office many times ( even if it has only been a week since school started) and mostly it's for something ridiculous. Like one time I accidently spilled some coke on my friend Ashley, she forgave me right away, but for Mrs. Anthony this was unacceptable. Why. I don't know, but it was.

Standing up from my bed, I headed towards the office. There I was greeted by the sight of a very upset Mrs. Anthony. "Ms. Chase, take a seat. I would like to ask you if you knew the time a student should be in their dormitory?" She asked.

"Student should be in their dormitories no later than 9pm," I said, quoting her words from the beginning of the year orientation.

"Very good Ms. Chase, now why do these security cameras show you walking into campus at 9:14 pm?"

"Mrs. Anthony, the traffic was really bad, it was a Saturday so I –"

"No excuses, Ms. Chase. If I have to call you in this office one more time, you will be expelled." When I heard this, rage filled my stomach, was it my flat that New York City gets a lot of traffic on a Saturday night? No, it's not and I've had enough of this teacher.

"Mrs. Anthony, I'm sorry that I got here late, but it's New York..."

"I will not repeat myself, . You may be top student but the rules still apply to you. And since you've made such a big deal, I, putting this offense on your record."

"you know what? I'm sorry I can't live up to your expectations. I'm just not right for this school, goodbye Mrs. Anthony, I'm leaving." I walked away from the office and to the street.

The only place I could think to stay is Percy's house, so I got a cab and headed towards there. I didn't bother to call because Mrs. Jackson/ Blofis had told me that if I ever need anything, I could go to them. Also I wanted to see seaweed brain's reaction when he saw me.

"Alright miss, hear we are. That would be fifteen dollars." The driver said. I gave him a twenty and told him to keep he rest as a tip. I stepped out of the cab and walked up to the building and headed towards his apartment. Taking a deep breath, I knocked on the door and waited.

"I'll get it mom!" I heard someone scream. At that moment Percy opened the door and stood there shell shocked.

"Wise Girl!" he screamed, and pulled me into a bone crushing hug.

'Percy. Can't. Breathe." Then he finally let go, but not without tenderly kissing my lips first.

"What are you doing here?" he asked.

"What? You don't want me here?"

"You know that's not what I meant!"

"Fine. I was tired of the headmaster so I quit school and came here."

"Oh, okay. Just... Can I say something real quick...?"


"HA WISEGIRL QUIT SCHOOL." Then cue the face palm.
