38. “They’re coming. Kiss me!”
honestly did not expect to see his ex there. He had turned twenty-one a few
days ago and Piper and Jason insisted that he try drinking. But there she was,
with her flaming red hair and bright green eyes. She was standing with her arms
wrapped around a guy. Her new boyfriend, Percy thought. He shouldn’t
have been surprised at that. Rachel was really pretty. It was no wonder that
she’d gotten a new boyfriend so quickly.
sorry, Perce,” Piper said, looking at Rachel with a look of disgust on her face.
nodded. “It’s fine,” he said, trying to believe it. He had gone out to get
drunk and forget about all his troubles. He was determined not to let Rachel
spoil that for him.
man. I’ll buy you a drink. That’ll cheer you up.” Jason said and dragged Piper over
to the bar with him, and Percy was left alone in the crowd. He knew soon Rachel
would spot him and things would get totally awkward. He saw the familiar face
of a blonde girl smiling at him from the crowd and got a terrible idea. Terrible,
but he kind of had no choice, unless he wanted to be embarrassed to death.
Percy said walking up to her, kind of nervously. “You’re Annabeth, right?
You’re in my English class at college.”
I’m in your physics class,” she replied.
Anyways, I’m Percy. This might be a weird question but can you be my girlfriend
for a while? Just for tonight?”
my ex is here and I don’t want her to know that I don’t have a girlfriend yet
when she already has a boyfriend and it would be totally awkward if she sees
you want me to be your fake girlfriend,” she said.
a terrible plan. Let’s do it,” she said, laughing. To Percy, her laugh sounded
like the most beautiful sound ever. Percy loved her stormy grey eyes and the cute
way her forehead scrunched up when she was thinking. He had seen at least three
other girls from his school here tonight, but didn’t know why he asked
Annabeth. Probably because he had liked her for ages.
You’ll do that for me?” Percy asked, brightening.
she said, smiling at him.
had spotted them now and was making her way towards them, her boyfriend right
at her heels.
coming. Kiss me!”
just do it,” he said desperately.
she pressed her lips on his. Percy thought it was the best moment of his life.
of the corner of his eye, he saw Rachel talking to her boyfriend and walking
alone towards them. They pulled away. “Hey,” she said, as she didn’t just she
her ex-boyfriend making out with some random girl who she did not know.
Percy replied awkwardly.
didn’t know you’d be here,” Rachel said.
neither. I came with some friends,” he said
Who’s this?” she said, gesturing to Annabeth.
is Annabeth, my girlfriend. Annabeth, this is Rachel, my ex.” From the look on
her face Percy could tell that Annabeth didn’t like Rachel. Or maybe she was
just a really good actor.
to meet you. Percy has told me a lot about you,” Annabeth said, holding out her
hand. Rachel shook it.
things or bad things?” Rachel said, laughing.
both. But mostly good things, like how you go to school in Paris and that
you’re a really good artist,” she answered, smiling. Rachel laughed and shook
who’s that?” Percy asked, chin pointing to Rachel’s boyfriend.
my gosh, I completely forgot. That’s my boyfriend over there,” she replied.
I see. C’mon babe, there’s Piper and Jason bringing us our drinks,” he said to
Annabeth and put his arm around her. Then to Rachel “Sorry, we gotta go. Nice
meeting you Rach. Bye!” he said and walked off quickly.
went smoothly, thank god,” Percy said as soon as they were out of earshot.
I do?” Annabeth asked him, grinning. “Was I the perfect fake girlfriend or what?”
did amazing, thanks so much,” Percy said, breathing a sigh of relief. And
before he could lose his courage, he asked.
so I was wondering. Would you like to go get some pizza with me?”
you asking me out?” she said.
what about your friends?”
let’s go,” she said and kissed him. It was a while before they pulled away. Percy grinned and put her arm around her waist. It was a night to remember.
