The Mark of Athena (the way I see it)
Breathe, 60 feet, breathe, 50 feet, breathe! “Leo, can’t you make this contraption go any faster!” I snapped. “Chill Annie you’ll get to see him soon!” Leo replied. I could see his beautiful dark hair, his sea green eyes. Hehu, hehu, hehu, hehu! Oh, crud. Blackness. I awoke with 10 worried faces looking down at me. “Are you all right Annabeth?” Jason asked, worry contorting his regal features. “Yah, yah, I’m all right.” “It’s going to be fine so stop worrying and stop hyperventilating,” Jason said. It had been 8 months since she last saw her boyfriend, Percy. Stupid Hera! Messing around in my love life, taking both my boyfriend and all of his memories of anything away. Thump! Annabeth was ripped out of her thoughts and sent rolling across the deck of the Argo II which was made by our repair boy of Hephaestus, Leo and had a head of our friend Happy the dragon for a mast( long story) . The landscape was beautiful; it could only get better if there weren’t scowling demigods with spears pointed at you and if there wasn’t a broken bust talking about a Pomeranian Line and no weapons. She scanned the crowd looking for that mob of black hair that she loved. Finally she saw him.
Leo looked down, what looked like a whole entire city was spread before him. It was like what you would expect in some museum. Hundreds of hostile looking faces were staring at him as if he had just dropped out of the sky. Oh, wait he did. Despite all of this Leo still waved hello to everyone. None of them even smiled. A weird kid with sandy hair, tall wiry body looked disgusted (which is hard to do when you’re holding a unicorn pillow pet). Leo scanned the crowd until he saw someone with black wind-blown hair and intense green eyes that was wearing a bed-sheet. This person must have the oh-so-amazing Percy Jackson whom Annabeth kept talking about. Beside him was a girl with a stern look on her face wearing the same thing as Percy. She had long dark hair pulled back in a ponytail. She was smocking hot, out of his league and probably wouldn’t date him if the world depended on it. She was just the type of girl Leo usually flirted with until they got annoyed and punched him. Leo was trying very hard to goggle at the hot chick but a weird statue said kept calling yelling about pomegranate lines and no weapons. Since Leo was super ADHD his little brain couldn’t stare at the hottie in a bed-sheet and listen to a statue who wanted pomegranates. And with such a small brain it is not good to overwork it.
There she was staring at him, beautiful grey eyes filled with amazement. They were still 20 feet in the air, but Annabeth jumped off the side and rolled. When she got up she fell on me pushing us both into the ground. She hugged me so tight I thought she was going to break a rib. We stayed that way for a while. She buried her head in my chest and sobbed. When she finally looked up she asked if I remembered her. “Of course I remember you. Even when Hera or Juno or whatever wiped my memory I still remembered you.” Annabeth smiled at him as if a huge weight had been lifted off of her shoulders and kissed him more a good 5 minutes. “Ahem!” Percy and Annabeth split apart immediately, both blushing red as a tomato. All of the Romans were snickering at them with barely concealed smirks. “Thank you for coming Greeks and thank you so much for returning our beloved former praetor, Jason. May you please introduce yourselves” said Reyna. A Latino with elfish features who I assumed was Leo said, “Hey, I’m Leo…Supreme Commander of the Argo II and I’m the son of Hephaestus or for you Vulture-“You mean Vulcan” a guy with blonde hair whom I guessed was Jason cut in. –“I mean Vulcan.” “First off, hi I’m Piper daughter of Aphrodite or Venus for you, and second Leo here is just our repair boy,” said a girl with choppy uneven hair and kaleidoscope eyes. “Hello, I’m Jason as you know and I’m the son of Jupiter.” “And I am Jason’s sister, Head Hunter of the Hunters of Artemis and daughter of Zeus.” “Hello there we are Travis and Connor Stoll of Hermes take us to your leader” Connor and Travis said in an alien voice. Apparently the Romans didn’t get the joke and started pointing at me and Reyna. “Hi, I’m Katie daughter of Demeter and girlfriend of the alien Travis.” ” Γεια σας, το όνομά μου είναι Annabeth Chase, κόρη της σοφία και στρατηγική μάχη godess Αθηνάς ή Minerva για εσάς.
Hello, my name is Annabeth Chase, daughter of the wisdom and battle strategy godess Athena or Minerva to you.” All of the Greeks and Romans looked impressed. Annabeth had just spoken in fluent Latin. She was even better than some Roman demigods at Latin. “Hi, I’m Hazel daughter of Pluto.” “I’m Frank son of Mars.” “Hey, I’m Percy Jackson, co-praetor of the legion.” “And I am Reyna, the other co-praetor.” She turned to face the Romans. “While the Greeks are here they are our guests and you shall not harm them. Did you get that Octavian, no harming?” “But Reyna how could you let these, Greeks to come here? If I were praetor their little toy boat would already be shrapnel in the breeze.” You see the problem there Octavian” I said “you are NOT praetor, Reyna and I are and based upon what you just said there are REASONS that you aren’t.” “Hey you listen Jackson you may be praetor, but-“Quick,” Hazel said “there is a message from Gaea carved into the ground, and it’s for you Percy.”
