Annabeth and Percy. I was sitting on the bus, my legs neatly resting on the sofa arm, waiting for Percy to get home. My head is resting on a lovely, hand-sewed cushion, and my hands are clutching a hard-bound book, but I have no idea who authored it. Suddenly, there's a loud bang! The door opens, and in runs Annabeth, carrying something heavy under her arms.
She drops what she's carrying at my feet and collapses onto the floor in a sweaty, exhausted heap. "I'm so sorry I'm late!" she says, pulling out a chair and collapsing into it. "The guy at the store asked me the same question three times before he would sell me some ice."
"Ice?" I say. "What kind of ice? As in, frozen water?"
"No, idiot," she snaps. "As in, ice cream."
I laugh. It's the only answer I could think of. Ice cream. That makes sense. She pulls a face though. "This ice isn't very good," she says, rubbing her hands together to warm them up. "Do you have any hot water I can boil it in?"
I tell her where the hot water is kept in the house and leave her to it. When I return an hour later, she's made us both cups of coffee.
"PERCY!" Annabeth shouted, wrapping her arms around the kid who had just leaped from the winged horse's back. He resembled Annabeth's description of him, with jet black hair, sea green eyes, and a foolish smile. "Nice to see you, Annabeth," Percy responded with a smile. He wrapped his arms around her. "Hey, uh, do I know you?" he asked. "I don't think so," she said, laughing. "No, I mean, are you one of Jason's friends?"
Percy was at Camp Half-Blood for nine months while he learned how to ride a horse and fight using the weapons kept here for him. When he finally felt ready, Annabeth took him on a tour of Greece, telling him about each city they visited. She didn't mention anything about fighting or killing dragons, but when they reached Athens, she took him to the temple of Apollo where they watched as one of Percy's old classmates fought a dragon. After the battle was over, she took him to a restaurant where they ate fried eggplants and drank retsina. It was then that she told him about the truce between Apollo and Hephaestus and how both temples sent their best fighters to compete against each other in annual battles called Erechtheia. She also told him about the Oracle, which was located inside the temple of Apollo in Athens. If anyone dared to ask it specific questions, it would tell them the future by writing them in the sacred ink on a piece of parchment.
Percy and Annabeth did not deviate from the text. So, quit being concerned. Frank was absolutely astounded since he and the other seven, as well as Coach Hedge, had assumed Percy and Annabeth had been stolen, but instead discovered them sleeping together in the stables. To be honest, they merely spoke, kissed, and fell asleep. Frank thought it was sweet.
Percy not only taught readers numerous thought-provoking concepts, but he also made the Gods think about them. The world-building, storyline, characters, and myth were all excellent and well-balanced. The book's main characters were Percy, Annabeth, Grover, and Clarisse. The new chapter in Percy and Annabeth's relationship was charming and adorable. However, I felt that the character development of some other characters could have used more attention. For example, Leo needs more background information added to him so we can understand why he does what he does. Also, Percy's mother needs more screen time.
Overall, this is an amazing book that anyone who loves mythology will love reading about. This book series has been turned into a movie now, so be sure to check it out if you haven't already!
Annabeth had Percy go back into the brook in front of Chiron and the entire camp, where his wounds were promptly cured. Remove Clarisse's disguise, exposing her true identity as Mrs. Dodd, the Fury. Then, tell Annabeth to leave or else.
Percy didn't want to leave, but he knew that if he refused then Annabeth would be forced to leave him. He also knew that Mrs. Dodd was no longer pretending to be his mother, so he needed to deal with that issue before they could continue their conversation. Finally, he realized that since he was now healed and able to walk again, there was nothing to stop him from going after Hades even if it meant crossing into Camp Jupiter's territory alone. So he walked back into the brook where Chiron and company waited for him, removed Clarisse's disguise, and told Annabeth to leave.
Annabeth wasn't happy about this turn of events and tried to talk Percy out of it, but she knew better than to try and stop him from doing something that he wanted to do. She also didn't want to leave him after everything they went through together, so she decided to stay.
Percy marched up to Mrs. Dodd and asked her why she had turned against him. She replied by telling him that he was responsible for her being in a wheelchair.
Annabeth, one of Percy's closest friends, noticed something deeper, sadder, almost tragic about him. It made her cringe at times because his aura was so powerful and... terrifying. As he snapped his fingers in front of her face, she was jolted out of her trance. "Annabeth? Annabeth. Oh, Annabeth!" He yelled her name again and again until she looked up at him with tears in her eyes.
Percy knew what she was thinking: that he was hurting too. So he told her that he had a secret that could get them both killed. If it leaked out, they would be the first people punished by the Fates. The only way to save himself and Annabeth was if he won the Prophecy Tournament. Only one person could prevent him from dying: Apollo.
Apollo was the god of prophecy and music. He used to be friends with Percy's father, Zeus. But then he fell in love with Cassandra, a beautiful goddess who could not feel any pain. When Zeus decided to punish him, he locked him away in a cave without any music to listen to. Without Apollo to guide him, everything he did was wrong!
So when Percy needed help the most, it was Apollo who came to his rescue. Using his magic lyre, he helped him win the tournament. Now that he's dead, there's no way for Percy to save himself or Annabeth from being crushed by a truck.
