Hi people! This chapter might not be as good because I've been super lazy lately lol haven't been feeling the best, hope you enjoy anyway.

Annabeth POV

I looked at Percy as we made our way towards the elevator. I nodded to Cinna and caught up with Percy. I looked at him. "Is he, you know, a demigod?" I asked timidly. He nodded. "Him and the little girl from eleven," he told me. I hugged him. He wrapped his strong arms around me. "I know. I know," he said as the others walked into the elevator.

No one said much at dinner that night. Percy and I held hands under the table. He began telling them about training sessions. "What about Careers," Katniss asked. "Was that guy one of them?" Percy and I looked confused. "Yup," Haymitch said. "Mainly, from one or two. They train at a special academy until they're eighteen then they volunteer. At that point they're pretty lethal. They win almost every year," he explained. "Almost," Effie said. "Well that helps," Percy said sarcastically. I smacked him upside the head. "What? It's true," he said. I gave him a look. "Why doesn't it help," Peeta asked. "Because on top of being a Career he's a son of Ares, the god of war," Percy said.

Everyone went quiet at that. "I'm sorry I just," I said getting up and walking to the room. I closed the door and curled up on the bed. I stared at the screen for a long time wishing I could be back at camp so bad. After a few minuets, the door opened. I did not turn to see who it was. The bed dipped. "I'm sorry if I upset you," Percy said. "I don't know if I can do this," I said. "Do what," he asked. "This! Bringing them back," I said frustrated. I let the tears I'd been holding in fall. "Hey it's ok. We've done a lot in the past," Percy said wrapping his arms around me. I scoffed. "Seriously! We have! We found the bolt. We got the fleece. We held the sky. We made it through the labyrinth. We stopped Kronos. We went through Tartarus. We defeated Gaea. We can get two kids to camp," he said. "Can we though? Can we really?" I asked. "Yes. We can. I have faith in us Wise Girl," he said taking my hand. "We'll talk about tactics in the morning," I said. He kissed me on the forehead. We crawled under the covers and I fell asleep almost instantly.

When I woke up, Percy was already in the shower. I sat up and ran my hands through my messy hair. I heard the water stop and he came out in a towel. "Morning," I said tying to smooth down my hair so it look somewhat nice. "Hey Wise Girl. I didn't know you were up," he said slightly blushing. "I just woke up," I said. "I'm gonna shower." He nodded. I grabbed some clothes and walked into the bathroom. I took a quick shower and got dressed. I pulled my wet hair into a ponytail. Percy was on the bed waiting for me. I took his hand and led him to the dining room. Katniss and Peeta were already eating. Percy and Haymitch talked to them about what they should and shouldn't do. Eventually, Effie ushered them down. Percy and I walked back to our room to talk with Chiron. Percy had an idea to get into the arena without being noticed by anyone and we needed a few things from camp. Luckily, everyone at camp was willing to help us. Even Clarisse wished us luck and said she would do her part. We said out goodbyes and ended the Iris message. Our plan was going to be put into action the day of the Games so we could still relax. At least for now. Unfortuently, it looked like we had to take every opportunity to relax as we could.

We decided to go up to the roof. We brought some food and a blanket and ate lunch up there. We figured we had until Katniss and Peeta came back from training. It turned from us eating to us throwing fruit at each other. Soon, our little war died down and I was laying my head on his chest. He played with my blonde curls. The poor fruit lay around us. "I miss times like this when it's just you and me and the world dissolves," I mumbled into his chest. He smelled like the ocean like always. "Yeah. Like that kiss in the lake," he said with a sigh. My cheeks immediately turned red. "After this, I want to go back to that. To you and me swimming in the lake or hiking through the forest or having a picnic in the strawberry fields. I want to go back to just us," I said. "It will," he said and kissed the top of me head. I got up. "Let's see if they're back," I said helping him up. We gathered our things and walked back inside. Back to reality.
