Previously on SeaSwept:

I take a deep breath,"I'm moving away from New York."

3..... 2..... 1.....


They all start talking at once, making it hard to decipher anything they were saying. Also, bursting my eardrums.


"I'm really sorry for not telling you before, but I only found out today.", I say, worry in my voice.

They all come up and wrap me in a hug.

"Don't worry Percy, we will support you in any way possible", Piper say soothingly, as she wraps her arms around my shoulders.

"I have the best friends ever", my voice muffled by the fact that my head was buried in Jason's shoulders.

I swear that guy acts all toughlike, but he is basically a teddy bear on the inside, one that especially likes to snuggle.

-Time Skip to her leaving-

"Bye Guys!", I tell from the top of halfblood hill. Most of the camp had come to see me off. It felt nice, that so many people cared about me.

Soon a blue light washes over me, my surroundings no more the forests surrounding Camp-HalfBlood, instead gray buildings, and black roads.

Goodbye Camp HalfBlood, hello Gotham.


Percy's POV (of course)

Brrrrriiiing brrrriiiiing brrrriiiiing

I slam my hand on my alarm clock, smashing it to pieces. Whoops.

I roll out of my bed into the floor, just laying there for a while. (Am I the only one who does this in the mornings?)

I slowly pick myself off of the floor, emphasis on slowly. Why does school have to start so early in the morning. Why can't it start at like 9, or something. It's not like half the students sleep in their homeroom. (I have sadly done this sometimes)

I walk over to my night table next to my bed. I pull out the middle drawer, revealing all the alarm clocks stored up. Let's just say that, after the first week of me having to wake up early, my mom bought out a store of all of its alarm clocks.

I pick an alarm clock from the drawer and set it on the night table, using my fire powers to burn the remaining pieces of my old alarm clock.

That's about when I hear my mom yelling at me to wake up," Percy wake up, otherwise you will be late!"

"I'm already awake mom!", I reply, also shouting.

-TIME SKIP to after she has gotten ready-

I fly down the stairs, backpack in tow.

I'm gonna be late. I'm gonna be late.

"Perc-", My starts to say, before she is cut off.

"Sorrygottogo. I'mgonnabelate.", I say quickly before grabbing a piece of toast off the table, and popping it into my mouth.

I pick up my skateboard and rush out of the door, completely forgetting about the fact that I own a car.

-Time Skip to school (Okay I'm lazy, no judgey)-

I'm walking through my new school's hallways. Gotham Academy was it? Anyways, as I was saying, I am walking down the hallway, trying to get to the office, hopelessly lost. I look at my phone trying to pull up a map, when suddenly my head hits something. I fall to the ground, all of my binders and textbooks falling out of my backpack.

I look up to a fairly handsome guy looking at me with worry on his face. He had crystal blue eyes, with dark, raven black hair.

"Hey, are you okay?", I asks, as he holds his hand out for me to grab.

"Yeah, yeah I'm fine, nothing I haven't handled before.", I say rubbing my sore forehead.

"That's a relief. Wait! You're the new student right, you moved from New York?", he asks.

"Yup that would be me. Percy Jackson at your service. And who might you be?", I say holding out my hand for a handshake.

"I'm Richard Grayson, but most people just call me Dick. I'm suppose to be you your guide, I was suppose to meet you at the office, but now is fine too.", he says taking my hand.

"Well, it was nice to meet you Dick, but do you by chance know where the office is? I'm kinda lost.", I say rubbing the back of my head sheepishly.

"Yeah, come on, let's go.", he says with a slight chuckle.

-(I'm laaaaaazy) Time skip to office-

We both walk into the office, making small talk on the way there.

I walk up to the front desk.

"Hi, my name is Persephone Jackson, I'm the new student and I've come to pick up me schedule.", I say in the nicest tone possible. Better not to make enemies on the first day of school.

"Persephone... Persephone... Ah! Here it is!", she says, exclaiming that last part.

She clicks something on her screen and the printer next to her desk starts up. She picks up the paper, handing it to me.

"Here you go honey, your homeroom is Mr. Riley, same as Richard over there.", she says, pointing to Dick who was now sitting in a chair, deep in thought.

Dick's POV after Percy walks up to the lady at the front desk.

Wow... she looks nothing like a terrorist. She looks like a normal highschool girl.


"Hey name is Persephone Jackson, or as she likes to be called Percy. She has been accused of countless acts of terrorist activity, and has been kicked out of every school she has gone to, excluding Goode Highschool. She was also accused of kidnapping her mother, and was part of a nationwide manhunt, when she and two other children went missing. Your mission is to keep an eye on her, and make sure she doesn't try anything in Gotham.", Batman said, handing me a file.

Wow, so much in just 6 years of her life. I'm pretty impressed even though I shouldn't be.

*Flashback end*

I'm snapped out of my thoughts when I see a annoyed Percy waving her hands in front of my face, trying to get my attention.

"Finally, come on, we are gonna be late for homeroom.", she says dragging me put of the office.

"Wait. First, do you even know where you are going? Second, give me your schedule, I want to see what classes you have.", I say, stopping her in her tracks.

She hands me her schedule.

I scan over it quickly, "Okay so it seems we have all of our classes together. That's good. Just follow me after each of our classes."

"Okay so which way is out first class?", she asks me.

"That way", I say pointing down a hallway.

She starts walking off, not saying anything.

"Wait! Where are you going?", I ask her confused.

"I'm going to our homeroom, of course. I want joking before when I said we were going to be late. Now hurry up.", she says nonchalantly.

"But we still have... 2 MINUTES!! OH NO WE'RE GONNA BE LATE!", I say sprint down the hallway.

"That's what I've been trying to tell you idiot!", she says before sprinting after me.


Yeah... I have nothing, hope you enjoyed the chapter. Also I will be updating the next chapter next week, as I am super busy this week.
