"No, Poseidon. You have to ask Percy if he wants to go to the family reunion and soon! It is in a few days. He might need time to think about it. You can't spring that question on him at last second, Poseidon."
"I know that, Hestia, okay? It's just that I'm worried."
"What if Percy say no? Then it will be awkward to be around each other. But if he says yes then we are going to go, but what if out family hates him? Not that I care what they think, but what if Percy cares? What if they make him think they hate him and Percy thinks I hate him too? I don't want him to think I hate him. I love my boy, Hestia."
"Aw, Poseidon. I doubt it would be awkward if he said no. You will just being showing how much you care about him. You can let him know that too. And if he says yes then just say that you have terrible family issues with them and say if they say something to you then you come to me and I'll take care of it or if he is ready to go come to you and you will leave. Also make sure to say no matter what happens at the reunion that you will always care for him. Now, go ask him, Poseidon!"
I chuckles. "Thanks, Hestia."
Then, I hung up the phone and walked up stairs to Percy's room.
5 minutes ago...
I was walking down the stairs to get some water when I heard Poseidon on the phone. I would've continued walking down the stairs, but then I heard my name said by someone that sounded like Hestia. I froze and continued to listen.
Yeah, yeah. I know it is wrong. But who wouldn't stop if your Dad was talking about you to your aunt?
"You have to ask Percy if he wants to go to the family reunion and soon! It is in a few days. He might need time to think about it. You can't spring that question on him at last second, Poseidon." I heard Hestia say.
Family reunion? What reunion? Why hadn't Poseidon mentioned it earlier?
"I know that, Hestia, okay? It's just that I'm worried." I heard my Dad reply back.
Worried? Worried about what? I thought to myself really confused, but then that answer hit me.
He didn't want me to embarrass him in front of his family. I'm the mistake in the family. I was never supposed to be born. I was an accident. They don't know me. They were supposed to be the perfect little family, but then I came along. Poseidon should've been married before he had kids. I ruined his family. He never wanted me. Even when he found out about me. He still doesn't want me. That is why he didn't ask me to the reunion.
I quietly go back up the stairs, not thirsty anymore, with my head hung low.
I heard a kick on my door. "Percy?" I heard my Dad ask as he walked into my room.
"Yeah?" I asked playing dumb.
"Well, you see, um... my family is having a, uh, family reunion and, um, they invited me and I was wondering if, uhh, you want to come with me?" Poseidon asked with a look in his eyes that I couldn't quite place.
"Um... I won't go if you don't want me to." I say quietly.
"What? Why do you think I wouldn't want you to go?" Poseidon asked like he was really confused.
"Well... I'm your son that no one knew about. I'm a mistake. I don't want to ruin your family."
Poseidon's eyes widened and then he laughed. I mean really laughed. I squinted my eyes at him, confused.
"Percy, I don't think that you can do anything to ruin my family it is already ruined."
"Percy, I don't talk to any of my family except Hestia. And when we do talk all we do is fight. You are really the only person I care about in my whole entire family. And Hestia...sometimes." Poseidon smiles. "I didn't even want to go the the family reunion. I just thought that you would want to get to know the family. Just remember that they are really judge people. They do that to me all the time. Don't listen to them. Also if you are ever ready to leave then you can get me and we will leave."
"You'd really do all that for me?"
"Of course I would. Your my son."
The 'I love you' was not said but Percy heard it clearly.
"Thank you." Percy says.
"You don't have to thank me, Percy." I love you. I'd do anything for you. "So, what do you want to do? Your choice."
"I-I'll go." Percy said.
Poseidon smiled. He Neve knew how much he could love someone until he met Percy.
