Dogs Bring Everyone Joy
Percy Jackson woke up with a wet face and a big brown collie hovering over him. His dog, Zeke, was excitedly wagging his tail wanting his owner to wake up.
“Hey buddy!” Percy laughed.” How about we go for a walk?” The dog went nuts.
“Whoa, Zeke, calm down!” Percy was already half dressed by the time Zeke had stopped howling and jumping. Percy put on his Linkin Park T-shirt walking out to the kitchen to grab a bagel and Zeke’s leash. after putting the leash on Zeke Percy opened up the back door to Sanibel Beach and they started their morning.
Zeke decided he wanted to go for a run, catching Percy by surprise,who fell face first in the sand. Up ahead a dog did the same to her owner, knocking her down. She had had her coffee cup by her stomach which broke with the impact and stained her white and grey Paramore T-shirt. The dogs met up and started wrestling as dogs tend to do. Percy was first to recover. He let go of Zeke’s leash and went to help the woman up. She was blonde with her curly hair in a ponytail.
“Hey need some help?” He asked, stretching his hand out to help her. She took his hand and got up. She looked him up and down with stormy grey eyes. ‘ I know those grey eyes. Is that…?’ He thought. She suddenly took a step backward and stiffened.
“Why are you looking at me funny?”
“Oh, sorry you look like a friend of mine that I haven’t seen in a while.”
“Oh, well I’m Percy. Nice to meet you…?” The woman gasped.
“Seaweed Brain?! It’s Annabeth! Wise Girl!” She exclaimed. Percy broke into a grin.
“This is where you’ve been all this time?! Oh my Gods Annabeth, I missed you so much.” Percy stepped toward her and gave her a huge bear hug. Annabeth blushed but hugged back.
“You broke up with me, Percy. Why’d you miss me?”
“I don’t know. That’s the problem.” He said into her hair. He hugged her tighter before letting her go. Annabeth winced.
“ What’s wrong?”
“Are you okay?”
“Yeah.” A voice called behind her,
“Annabeth! Babe? Cherry or lemon?” A man with dark brown hair and icy blue eyes came running over with two smoothies. He eyed Percy suspiciously.
“Hey, Aaron. This is an old friend, Percy Jackson. We dated when we were younger.” Annabeth took the cherry as Aaron and Percy shook hands. She watched the dogs roll around in the sand.
“Zeke, come here boy!” Percy called. The large dog jumped onto Percy knocking him down. Annabeth laughed. Aaron just observed. He saw the way Annabeth looked at Percy and vise versa. He didn’t like Percy.
Three Hours Later
Annabeth and Percy had exchanged phone numbers. She could see Aaron didn’t like it. He sat on the couch in the living room watching television as Annabeth sat on the bathroom floor, crying. Yesterday, Piper had seen the bruise on her arm and asked her about it.
“What do you mean?”
“I mean that on your arm.”
“Oh, that. I hit a wall really hard.” Piper didn’t believe her. She knew how Aaron acted sometimes. Annabeth would never admit it, but Aaron beat her. There was a knock at the door.
“Annabeth, come out baby. I’m sorry. I won’t do it again. I promise.” He said through the door. Annabeth wiped the tears from her eyes and stood up. She opened the door. Aaron stood there. She hugged him, trying not to cry into his shirt. He hated it when she got him wet. She missed Percy. She could cry into his shirt till the cows came home and he wouldn’t care at all. Aaron looked at her from arms length.
“Why don’t you ever cry?”
“Because I don’t want to make you upset. Getting you wet makes you unhappy.” Aaron held her closer. It reminded Annabeth of when Percy held her. She always felt better with Percy, but with Aaron she felt the same. All the time. All she felt was wrong. She didn’t like it. When she met up with Percy on the beach Annabeth felt a completeness inside.
Piper wouldn’t stop accusing Aaron of beating up on Annabeth. Finally, Jason called Nico up to come over to their house. Nico rang the doorbell. He was worried about his son, Alec. He had a really bad fever and Raven had the flu so he called Percy over to look over them. Raven was Nico’s sister. Daughter of Hades And Maria di Angelo. Carrie was at Camp Half-Blood helping to train the archery class for Malcolm, Annabeth’s half brother, because he was on a quest for Chiron. Carrie and Nico had gotten married when they were eighteen. They had two kids, Clara and Alec. Alec was only about a year old. Clara was about three. Clara was actually the reason Nico and Carrie got married so early. Jason opened the door.
“Hey cuz, thanks for coming. Piper thinks that Aaron is beating on Annabeth so she told me to call you.” Jason explained as they walked down the hallway. ‘This is a big house for two people. They expecting kids soon?’
“Oooookkaaaayy? What am I supposed to do about it?” Piper appeared behind them. She looked like a mess. Nothing like she normally did. And she was stuffing her face with Hot Cheetos and a chocolate bunny. ‘Ew. That’s just nasty.’ Nico thought to himself.
“Hey Nico.” She suddenly belched. Nico and Jason cracked up. Jason ended up on the floor in fetal position and Nico was leaning on the wall breathless and hiccuping. Piper looked agitated. They both tried to calm down, only somewhat succeeding. Piper spoke.
“Nico, I want you to spy on Annabeth and Aaron to see if he hits her. If he does, call Percy, if he doesn’t call me, okay?” Nico just stared at her, jaw so low it could touch the floor. WHAT did she want him to do?
“Whaaa-?” He finally sputtered out. Piper repeated it to him three times before he got it. He would have gotten it faster if it weren’t for the fact that both his son and his sister were sick. Libby was on her honeymoon with Luke. Nico brought Luke Castellan back to life when Percy and Annabeth fell into Tartarus. Their reactions were hilarious. Annabeth was totally out of it.
“What the..? How the…? HADES!” Percy acted casual, although the fear in his eyes told everyone differently. He was probably thinking of the Kronos/Luke instead of his old sword instructor.
“Whatchyou doing here?” Luke acted offended.
“What, I don’t get no ‘hi Luke.’ or anything? No dice? No dice. Stupid me for being evil.” Luke looked down at his feet. Nico glared at Annabeth.
“Whatchyou just say?”
“Sorry. What the…? How the…? CRAP!”
“Okay that’s better.”
“Why me? Why not Conner or Travis or another Hermes child?”
“Because I can’t trust them. But I can trust you. Please Nico. She’s like your sister.”
“Fine. Where does she live? Work? Where could I find her?” Piper told him everything he needed.
Three Days Later
‘Crap!’ Percy thought as he looked at the clock. He was already two minutes late. He put on a clean polo shirt and beige Bermuda shorts. ‘Thank the gods it’s just down the shore.’ Percy was supposed to meet Aaron and Annabeth at 10:00 down the shore. Zeke kept getting in the so by the time Percy got to the shore, he was fifteen minutes late. Thankfully they were still there.
“Annabeth, he’s not coming. Let’s leave.”
“No. If Percy isn’t late, he’s not Percy. He’s always been like this. If he’s not here in ten minutes we’ll go home. He’s always been ‘Percyishly’ late.” She looked over.
“There he is!” Aaron coughed and Annabeth put on her sweater. Percy came over and sat down next to Annabeth and shook Aarons hand.
“Hey, Johnson, can I talk to you for a second?” Aaron asked Jackson.
“Sure. And it’s Jackson. One man already knows me as Peter Johnson.” Jackson said, getting up.
“Be right back baby.” Aaron leaned down and kissed Annabeth on the cheek. Percy felt a pang of sorrow in his chest. They walked to a dark corner where Jamba Juice and Swirl It. Aaron shoved Percy into the corner. Percy wondered if he was going to die, get beat, or be kissed.
