AN: Alright, if this story goes according to plan, then it will be LONG, along with a (maybe) sequel. Get comfortable, guys, you're going to be here a while. Well, after the prologue. That's usually not too bad.

I've decided to play with Jack's character from Life of a Carrier and the whole "being pregnant and male is illegal". Only I've taken it a step further. Hope you enjoy!

Prologue

There was nothing quite like waking up in the morning after sex. A lazy smile spread across Percy's face as he stretched, the sheet slipping off his naked body. Luke wasn't lying next to him, but Percy expected that. Luke wasn't much of a cuddler, even after late night sex.

Still, Percy didn't let it bother him, especially because of how well last night had gone. He'd told Luke the news and instead of freaking out, Luke had kissed him, made passionate love, and told him he'd always be there, no matter what.

The happiness from Luke's declaration still buzzed in Percy's veins as he crawled out of the bed and slipped on a pair of jeans on the floor. He padded out of Luke's bedroom, his hands already resting on his stomach and searching for a baby bump. He knew it probably wouldn't be there this early, but he couldn't stop himself. A happy grin on his face, Percy opened his mouth to greet Luke, but closed it with a snap when he saw Luke was on the phone, his back to Percy.

"Yes, that's right. A pregnant son of Poseidon." Luke snorted at something the other person said. "Nah. He's not going anywhere. He's too oblivious to know. Just get here so I can get my money." Luke snapped the cell phone shut and slipped it back into his pocket, whistling as he walked into the kitchen.

Percy watched it all, his mouth parted and his green eyes wide. Luke was…Luke was turning him in to ADR, Agency of Demigod Removal. But, Luke loved him! He said so just last night! Luke wouldn't do this to him, right? Not when he's going to be a father…

"Percy?"

Percy jumped when Luke suddenly appeared in front of him, looking concerned. He reached out to touch Percy's cheek, but Percy stepped back before he could. "Who were you talking to just now?" Hopefully, Luke would just say a guy's he's working for. Or something like that. Something that explains why Luke just told someone Percy's deepest secret over the phone.

Luke smiled charmingly, just like he always did when he wanted to win Percy over, but it didn't look the same. His blue eyes were narrowed slightly and the smile seemed almost distorted on his handsome face. "No one important. Why?"

Percy took another step back, his hands curled protectively over his stomach. "Because you just told whoever it was my parentage. What reason could you possibly have for doing that?" He had to get out of here. But, how? Percy was literally backing himself into a corner and the front door was behind Luke. If it came down to a fight Luke would win.

"Really, Percy, it's nothing you need to worry about." Luke held his hands up, as if he was showing he wasn't a threat. Oh, but Percy knew better now and he wouldn't let Luke fool him like that again.

Percy lunged into the bedroom and slammed the door shut in Luke's face, quickly locking it. Luke banged on the door and yelled something, but Percy ignored him in favor of gathering his clothes off the floor and stuffing them into a backpack he'd found. Still shirtless, he pulled the straps over his arms and opened the window to get to the fire escape.

He shivered when the brisk wind hit his skin, but continued anyway. He could hear sirens in the distance; there was no time to put on a jacket.

Percy made it down the fire escape in record time, but as soon as his feet touched the concrete he forced himself to slow down. No way could he outrun the DRA cars, so his only chance was to blend in and hope to get by. Though walking without a shirt and shoes was going to make that hard.

Hide, then.

Percy rushed down a side ally, dove behind a green dumpster, and curled up in the smallest ball possible. The metal was freezing on his bare skin, but he made sure to keep silent.

The sirens grew louder and louder as they approached Luke's apartment. It took everything he had to stay where he was when his instincts were screaming at him to run, to get away.

In an effort to calm himself, Percy wrapped his arms around his midsection and rocked quietly. "Everything gonna be okay," Percy whispered. He caressed the skin over his stomach lovingly. "Mama will protect you and love you no matter what happens. We don't need Luke, do we, baby? It'll be just you and Mama." Against his will, a few tears slipped from his eyes. He rubbed at them furiously, choking back a sob, as he finally heard the sirens pass the ally by.

He sagged against the dumpster in relief and looked back down at his stomach. "You see, baby?" He smiled shakily. "Everything's gonna be just fine."

And then, he buried his head in his hands and cried.
