I was anxiously gnawing on my fingernails, Jason had been gone all morning with Thalia, and as pathetic as it is, I cant be away from him for too long without getting nervous. I contemplating going to Annabeth's cabin to kill some time, but I noticed as of late she had been basically attached to Percy. I mean before they had a definite co-dependency, but now its almost as of they're literally attached to each other. I cant say that I'm not happy for them, they went through a lot, they deserve to be happy.
As a daughter of Aphrodite it was very evident that their relationship had bumped up a notch, not that any of us thought that was possible. If I didn't know any better I would say they were newly engaged or possibly even married. But that was unlikely due to the fact that most demigods don't live long enough to get married, most don't even try.
Here I am lying in my bed staring at the ceiling fan spin around, and around, seemingly to no end. There were so many big things going on right now, things much bigger than I am, yet here I am sitting here like I have no problems. It almost feels like I'm at a real summer camp, rather than a secret demigod training camp.
Deciding I had enough of watching the ceiling fan, I got up to go give Annabeth's cabin a try. There was a slim chance she would be there. I walked down the isle of cabins to Athena's. keeping my head down, trying not to attract attention. I wasn't really in the mood for small talk.
I walked straight into Athena's cabin without so much as a knock. I was slightly upset when I saw that Annabeth wasn't there. With a slight sigh I turned to leave, I was almost completely out the door when one her siblings spoke up, "If you're looking for Annabeth, she is where she always is.... Percy's cabin." I winked, "Thanks"
I didn't know if I should go there, there was about a fifty/fifty chance that I would catch them in a compromising position. I decided I was anxious enough to give it a try.
When I got to cabin three, instead of just walking in, I took a deep breath and knocked. "Annabeth? You in there?" I heard a toilet flush and someone tripping, "I'll be right there hold on." I tried to hide my laughter as Annabeth opened the door in an over sized hoodie and a mess of hair piled into a bun on her head. "Piper! hey what's going on? Come in."
I followed her over to Percy's huge bed, wait he didn't have a bed this size before. He had to have gotten this recently, "New bed?" She blushed, "Uh yeah, he said the other one was a bit too small for him. You know considering by this age most kids stop coming to camp." She couldn't make eye contact. I smiled, "Annabeth, I know you've been staying here, you don't have to pretend like you aren't. He got the bed for you didn't he?" She nodded, "I feel more comfortable with him you know?" "You don't have to explain yourself to me, the whole reason I'm here is because Jason is off with Thalia and I am on edge without him."
She squeezed my hand and was about to say something when she covered her mouth and sprinted to the bathroom, where she proceeded to empty the contents of her stomach. Okay so there's two options, either she was sick, or she was pregnant.
