All that I could dream about was me and Annabeth's kiss. It was just so perfect. Still, I just had to accept the fact that she didn't want me anymore. She wanted Connor Stoll, that slimy little-. I couldn't let myself get mad at him, even if he was the luckiest man on earth.
The last conversation me and Annabeth had had was about how she wanted to break up with me because she loved Connor. It had went like this:
"Percy, I can't date you anymore" said Annabeth
"Why not?" I said
"Because I don't love you anymore" Annabeth said.
"Who do you love, then?" I exclaimed.
"Connor Stoll" Annabeth said with a dreamy look in her eyes.
"How do you love Connor, he's a son of Hermes? He steals everything and you basically hate him!" I was trying so hard to help her see the light.
"He's so sweet, and he would do anything for me. He told me on our first date." Annabeth now had a fierce look on her face as if I'd offended her and I was exasperated.
"You were dating him while you were dating me?" I inquired, pointing at the general direction of the Hermes cabin then to myself.
"Well...yeah. It all started right after he sweet talked me while I healed from the arrow that went into a chink in my armor. He had stolen some healing medicine and given it to me" Annabeth had her dreamy eyes again, and those made me so mad I couldn't choked Connor.
"I can't believe this. Well, I guess it's over. Bye, Annabeth" I gave up, walking away.
"Bye, Percy" something crossed Annabeth's face that I couldn't quite put my finger on. It kind of looked like I had just slapped her, or maybe I was just seeing things.
I had left and went to my cabin after that. I couldn't believe that a good friend of mine and my girlfriend had went out and cheated on me. I didn't come out of my room for a while, and I never saw Annabeth, because she went to a school with Connor, leaving me completely abandoned. I was utterly and completely alone. There was one thing that had been biting at the back of my head, but I hadn't been able to force it out of me on that day. I was going to tell Annabeth something extremely important.
I loved her.
