I knew we should have taken the Luke problem a little bit more seriously. Everyone was just so nonchalant about it, like hey we have a dude possessed by one of the most powerful deities ever locked in our basement... no big deal. Now he's missing and so is Percy. From what I heard there was some unfinished business between Percy and Tartarus, but Percy got away from him once so I can only hope that he can do it again.
Not that I would admit it to most people but I feel unbalanced without Percy. I had grown to admire his leadership, and trust him his a comrade in battle. He had actually grown to be more than that, almost like a brother. The thought of losing my new brother right after finding him put a pain in my gut. I just really wanted to go find Piper but shes spent just about all of her free time with Annabeth helping her deal with everything.
None of us are giving up on finding him, he's only been gone a week. But it was hard to devise a reliable plan without finishing the spear. We've been trying to finish the spear, but we had hit a dead end. We needed to sharpen it with the bone of a fallen hero, and considering the fact that we burn our dead we didn't exactly have any extra bones laying around. Plus just the thought of it gave us the creeps, even Nico and he's a son of Hades.
I had been pacing on the roof of cabin one for at least an hour by now, letting the open sky calm me down. I could feel my stomach start to growl so I floated down with the intention of getting some food, but instead ran smack into my girlfriend. I grabbed hold of her so when we fell she landed on top of her. "ouch, oh hey Jason! Nice of you to drop in." I tried not to laugh at her cheesy pun but I couldn't help it, she was just so darn adorable. I giggled, "Sorry Pipes didn't see ya there, I was just going to get something to eat, would you like to join me?" She kissed my nose, "Sounds great, I was actually headed up there myself."
A group of young girls were pointing at us and giggling. "Piper I think we should get up now, we seem to be drawing attention." She put her head down on my chest, " I don't care, this is actually kind of nice" I wrapped my arms around her and took a deep breath, which felt like the first one I had taken in days.
Our brief bliss was so rudely interrupted, "EW, Get a room ! Or like a cabin, I'm pretty sure we have a couple of those around." Leo was walking in the direction of the forge yelling over his shoulder. "Come on guys, I understand you love each other but lets not rub it in to those of us who have yet to rescue our damsel." I helped Piper to her feet and she looped her arm through mine, "You know I still have the horn of plenty we can take Leo's advice and just go back to your cabin and eat."
I picked up a subtle hint that she may want to do more than just eat. As a roman I usually had my emotions is complete check, but when it came to Piper I couldn't hide anything. I scooped her up and flew straight through the door of cabin one.
Apparently that subtle hint I thought I was picking up on was one hundred percent correct. The second I put her down she reached for my shirt tugging it up. Once my shirt was off my mouth met hers, and we slowly started backing towards the bed. I gently started to kiss her neck while pulling her shorts down. Our passion was growing with every second. Eventually we were down to my boxers, and her boy short cut underwear. We had never been this far before and it wasn't feeling like they were going to stop.
I looked her in the eye, "Are you sure you want this?" She cupped my cheek, "All I've ever wanted was you." I took that as permission to take off the last bits clothing.
I I didn't really know something could feel this good. It wasn't even the initial pleasure, but just the overwhelming emotional connection I was making with Piper. Every touch, every kiss, it was like ten times more powerful than before. Hearing her say my name, knowing I was the one making her feel this way, it was just, so, amazing.
I was almost there, almost ready to finish. Then the freaked out, "Jason pull out! Pull out now!" I did as she asked just in time. We laid there breathing heavy for a few minutes. I played her hair, for a while, rubbing my hand up and down her back. "Wait I'm confused, I'm wearing a condom whats the problem?" She looked at me with this contemplative expression. "Jason if I tell you a secret, do you promise not to tell anyone?"
Was that even a question, if this girl told me to change my name is Fred I would do it. "Piper you can tell me anything." She bit her lip, "Okay, so, apparently most methods of birth control don't work with children of this big three. So I got a little nervous, I mean as a daughter as Aphrodite I can control, you know, if I get pregnant. But I didn't really want t rely on that."
"And how do you know all this?" She blushed, "Well I talked to my siblings and they told me that if you focus you can..." I cut her off, "No I mean about the other thing, and what's the so called secret?" She blushed even harder now, "I know because.... Annabeth is pregnant. Percy's dad told him that the big three are like extra fertile or something. But you have to promise to say nothing to no one."
I stuck out my pinky finger, "Pinky swear." She nestled up to me and fell asleep. As I watched her sleep I freaked out, I've only had sex once, and I'm already terrified to do it again. I really needed Percy now more than ever. Poor Annabeth, she must be going through so much, to get pregnant and than lose Percy all in the same day. It looked like we all needed Percy right now.
I was on the brink of sleep, when I heard it... the scream.
