When you hold me in the street

And you kiss me on the dance floor

I wish that it could be like that

Why can't it be like that?

'Cause I'm yours

I stabbed a hellhound that is supposed to attack Annabeth. It exploded into dust. Humph. Serves it right for attacking my Wise Girl.

Annabeth smiled at me. I smiled back.

We keep behind closed doors

Every time I see you, I die a little more

Stolen moments that we steal as the curtain falls

It'll never be enough

"Who're you, kid?" I asked the boy in front of me. A new demigod, to be exact.

The boy looked at me, then to Nico. "My name's Logan."

It's obvious you're meant for me

Every piece of you, it just fits perfectly

Every second, every thought, I'm in so deep

But I'll never show it on my face

"No, Annabeth!" I told her. "He just seemed like an enemy. I can't-"

Annabeth glared at me. "Oh, come on, Percy! How can a young half-bloods be an enemy?"

But we know this.

We got a love that is homeless

Slap!

The mark burned on my cheek, as Piper glared at me and she stalked off. Jason glared, too.

"Remember this, Jackson," he growled. "We are not friends anymore."

And he followed his girlfriend.

Why can't you hold me in the street?

Why can't I kiss you on the dance floor?

I wish that it could be like that

Why can't we be like that?

'Cause I'm yours

"Liar..."

"...not a true hero!"

"Wanna be..."

"...murderer."

Those words echoed through my head as I walked to Camp Half-Blood. Day by day, my friends starts to leave me. When I visited Camp Jupiter, they immediately pointed their weapons at me.

[Jason Derulo:]
When you're with him, do you call his name

Like you do when you're with me? Does it feel the same?

Would you leave if I was ready to settle down

Or would you play it safe and stay?

The horn blew thrice and I immediately ran to the boundaries. I saw a rogue Cyclops and it started barrelling its way towards me. In a flash, my sword was out and the monster is a pile of dust.

"You!" I heard a voice said. "You almost let that in?"

I turned to see Thalia glaring murderously at me.

Girl, you know this.

We got a love that is hopeless

They carved words to my skin. 'Heartless', 'killer', 'villain'.

I hadn't countered the punches I received. I let it be.

Why can't you hold me in the street?

Why can't I kiss you on the dance floor?

I wish that it could be like that

Why can't we be like that?

'Cause I'm yours

I walked to Camp, wearing a jacket to hide my scars. I slowly headed to the beach.

And nobody knows I'm in love with someone's baby

I don't wanna hide us away

Tell the world about the love we're making

I'm living for that day

Someday

"I never even did anything!" I protested.

"LIES!!!" Poseidon roared. "You're the reason Sally died! Don't you dare act like you hadn't!"

"But I didn't!"

"Silence! I, Poseidon, god of the seas, earthshaker, father and creator of horses, is hereby disowning you!"

Why can't I hold you in the street?

Why can't I kiss you on the dance floor?

I wish that we could be like that

Why can't we be like that?

'Cause I'm yours, I'm yours

I ran from the trees, avoiding the branches. Then, I stopped by a tree, panting heavily.

Suddenly, I heard voices. I headed to the direction...

Oh, why can't you hold me in the street?

Why can't I kiss you on the dance floor?

I wish that it could be like that

Why can't it be like that?

'Cause I'm yours

I gasped, and the couple broke off from their make-out session. Annabeth's eyes widened.

"Percy!" she said. "It's not like what you think!"

Why can't I say that I'm in love?

I wanna shout it from the rooftop

I wish that it could be like that

Why can't we be like that?

'Cause I'm yours

I packed my bags and hiked to the top of the hill, not noticing the ring falling from my bag and the pen vanish from my pocket. I stopped by my former cousin's tree and looked back.

Why can't we be like that?

A tear slipped down my cheek. They won't need me anymore...

Wish we could be like that

Then I turned and walked away. Hopefully, never to return again...
