Percy is 11 turning 12

Percy POV


"Coming Mom!"

I run down the stairs and skid to a stop in front of my mother. She is wearing a beautiful silver ball gown with pink trim and a pink shawl. Her hair is done fancily and she is wearing some make-up.

Am I forgetting something?

Is today something special?

I look at mom and see her facepalm.

"Percy, what are you doing in those street clothes? Don't tell me you forgot your own birthday?"

My birthday...


"Oh yeah! Oops! I'll go change!"

Mom nods and sighs exasperated. I quickly run upstairs and into my closet.

What to wear? What to wear?

Oh, who am I kidding. I only have fifty suits to choose from!

Did mom say anything specific...?

I don't think so. Let's see... about...this?

It is a white dress shirt with a blue cape that has red trim. Black dress pants and shoes. A gold color sash with my crests. Yes that's good.

I run a comb through my hair. Oh whatever. Not like anything is going to happen when I comb it!

I run back downstairs and see my mom waiting for me. She sighs and shakes her head, then beckons me over.

I now my head and nervously walk over to her, only to have something placed on my head. I look up.

"Can't forget your crown, now can we?"
My mom says smirking.

I shake my head and she grabs my hand, pulling me over to the royalty entrance to the ballroom. She alerts to guard that we are here and he makes the announcement. I feel someone else grab my other hand and turn to see my dad. I smile and he smiles back.

"Please welcome, your majesties, King Arthur(I'm making up these names), Queen Abby, and Prince Perseus!"

Exited clapping fills the halls as we walk in, hand in hand. We bow, and so does everyone else.

Music fills the halls and I look for someone to dance with. I decide to dance with my mother first.

"May I have this dance?"

"Of course you may"

She puts her hand in mine and we dance to the song. It is a quite boring song. I never liked ballroom dancing. The song ends after a while and I see dad make his way over to dance with mom . I excuse myself and go find another person to dance with.

"May I have this dance?"

I ask a kind looking young girl as another song comes on.

"You may"

As we dance I study the girl. She has long brown hair that is braided and thrown over her left shoulder. She wears a purple silk gown.

"You are quite the dancer."

"Thank you"

Soon the song ends and I now and excuse myself.

I look around to try to find another person the dance with. I see a lot of self-centered girls looking in mirrors and fawning over me as I pass. I will not dance with them.

I see some guys dancing with each other. I smile, happy to see some openly gay couples at the dance. Soon, everyone is paired up except for me and one other. I turn and look at the person.

It is guy. He has blonde hair and blue eyes. He wears a fancy looking suit and an emblem on his chest. I do not know what the emblem is from, but I see a Pegasus and CHB. I notice a scar running from his eye, down to his chin.

That gotta hurt when he got it.

He walks up to me.

"May I have this dance?"

"Hey that's my job!"

"So? I'm older. So dance with me?"


We dance, and I take the girl's role, though I am slightly miffed about it.

"Did the scar hurt when you got it?"

I blurt out the question accidentally. He cringes.

"Yes, very much so."

"Sorry, I do not mean to intrude."

"That's alright."

"How long are you staying here in France?"

"As long as I must."

"Oh. Maybe we could hang out sometime?"

"It would be my pleasure."

The song ends and stop dancing and bow to each other. He kisses my hand and turns, starting to walk away, towards my parents.


He stops and turns around, looking at me quizzically.

"I never got your name!"

"It's Luke. Luke Castellan."

I nod.

"See you around, Prince Perseus."

"It's just Percy!"
I call after his retreating form.

"Bye, Just Percy!"

Okay so my idea is that the King and Queen have already alerted Chiron about Percy, and he has sent Luke to be Percy's personal guard instead of a satyr. What do you think?

Also, should Luke be evil? Or an OC? Maybe Annabeth and the future is altered?

Anyways I have a test tomorrow and have to study, so I have to go now! Let me know your thoughts in the comments! Next update is May 5!
