We all know the story of Percabeth.
They start out as best friends, eventually fall in love, and start dating. Everyone loves that story. But what if the moment when they so actually start dating never happened? What if they never had the underwater kiss in the Last Olympian. While they still kissed under Mt. Saint Helens, they never kissed at CHB.
How Percy and Annabeth realize their feelings for each other? That's what this story is about.
AU STORY. There is no Prophecy of the Seven or the Underwater Kiss. All the events taking place in the PJO books happened, except for the underwater kiss between Percy and Annabeth. It's the year after the Battle of Manhattan, so Gaea isn't going to rise.
