Poseidon's POV

"Please, Dad!"

"Percy, I said 'no'. No means no, okay?"

"Dad, nothing will happen to me. I don't know what has gotten you so worried, but I'm fine."

"Nothing has gotten me worried. So stop asking! I said 'no' and thats final!" I said. I know I'm being overprotective, but you can't blame me. Kronos is a dangerous man. He was never my father and never will be. It was even worse with Gaea. They will never be around Percy. I won't allow it.

"Ugh." Percy groaned and ran up the stairs.

I rolled my eyes as the phone rang. I picked up the phone.

"Yeah?" I asked.


I sigh. "Zeus."

"Thalia is wondering if you came to a decision if Percy can come over."

"I did. The answer is no."

"Come on, Poseidon."

'What exactly did Hades doing?"

"He is letting Nico come over."

"And is Hades staying over there with him?"


"'No'?" I repeat, stunned. "Seriously."


"After what happened to you two?" I regret it immediately after I say it. I was amazed at the tension that came across the phone.

"Look, Poseidon, I think you should let Percy come over. I won't let anything happen to him. He won't be around Ares or any of them. He will only be with Thalia, Nico, and I. He will be fine."

"Look, brother, I hate to bring up bad memories for you, but you said the same thing last time. I don't want anything to happen to my son."

A pause. "Poseidon, we are older now and wiser. I will protect all three of them. I know you haven't been going to work lately. It is just who you are. You are too worried about Percy, but I can watch him and protect him while you catch up on all of your work, okay?"

I hesitate. "Okay, but Zeus, you keep both your eyes on him at all time. You make sure that he is always safe. Got it?"


We hung up the phone.

"Come on, Percy!" I yell.

Percy came running down the stairs. "Where are we going?" He asked.

"I'm taking you to Thalia's."


Poseidon's POV

I walk him up to Zeus' house, my hand on his shoulder. I knock, and then I look around to make sure everything is clear. I look down at Percy to see him watching me. I can practically hear the gears turning in his head. He has too much curiosity. Luckily, the door opened just in time, so Percy wouldn't question it.

"Bye, Dad! See you in a little bit!" Percy yelled over his shoulder as he ran upstairs with Thalia and Nico.

"See ya." I whispered.

"He'll be fine, Poseidon." Zeus said beside me.

"Aren't you supposed to be watching him with both your eyes?" I replied as I turned to glare at him.

Zeus glared back. "Go do your work, Poseidon." He said.

I hesitantly left and went to work. Today was going to be a long day.
