It's Sunday afternoon and I am trying to sleep but someone keeps poking my face with their finger. Out of frustration, I open one eye and see my dear older sister (note the sarcasm) sitting opposite me. She is dressed in her pj's with her raven black hair in a side swept braid framing her heart shaped face and has a hairbrush in her hand that reminds me of the incident with RED and Luke. I groan mentally and physically as Alexis is too stubborn to just let me get back to my oh so precious sleep. I slowly sit up as she shoves my pillow at me and takes up a place on my bed beside me. I look at her and say, "Lexi, what happened now? You know I was getting some sleep before I have to go on a date with Wise Girl." She looks at me for a minute and then says, "Nothing happened, little Bro. I just wanted to thank you for taking care of me and being a good brother for these 2 years. I know most siblings are competitive and annoying but you have been encouraging and kind. I can never repay you." As she said those words, I thought that she was joining the hunters and she didn't want to leave without telling me. I'll admit that at first when we rescued Alexis from the Lotus Casino, I thought that my elder sister would hate me. She was born 17 years before me but was trapped in the casino for almost 17 years,making us about the same physical age. I was scared that she would see me as an enemy and antagonize me but she proved me wrong. We became best friends quickly. Despite the mental age difference, we behave like regular siblings. Since we look almost identical, we play a lot of pranks on people too. We have successfully pulled many pranks across CHB and CJ. We are second only to the Stoll Brothers. The thought of her leaving is painful. I wipe a stray tear off my cheek and say, "Lexi, If you are joining the hunters, I will not stop you. I will always be there for you as your brother. You don't have to worry about me."
She looks at me weirdly and says, "Perc, I am not joining the hunters. What makes you think I want to join them? Thalia herself is planning on quitting because of her 'subtle' crush on death breath. I can not handle being an immortal nun. Besides who would give the Stolls any competition, if I left?" I chuckle at her words and throw my pillow at her. I start hitting her with the pillow as she is ROBL(rolling on the bed laughing) and say, "Oh my Gods, what was that about? You gave this emo speech about me being there and all. I was worried that you were going to leave or die. Are you OK?" She laughs for a minute before she sees me pouting and puts on a semi serious face. She says, "Of course I am Ok. I just want to tell you something and I don't know how to tell you." I sit beside her and say, "Lexi, you can tell me anything. I wouldn't get angry or judge you for it. We know everything about each other. We are family and we will always be there for each other." She looks at me for a second and says, "Percy, you are my brother and I love you." I reply, "I love you too, Sis." She chuckles darkly before saying, "That's the thing. I love you more than a sister should. I love you like no sister must ever love her brother. You are everything to me. I don't want anyone else to have you. I want you to be mine and mine alone. I don't want to see you get hurt by others."
When she finishes, she looks at me expectantly. I am shocked. My sister or half-sister is in love with me. I can't betray my Wise Girl but I can't break my sister's heart and our relationship.
I regain my composure and say, "Lexi, I love you as my sister. You know my fatal flaw and you know that it will never let me cheat on or betray someone. I can't do that to Annabeth. I don't know what to tell you." I look at her and see tears glistening in her ocean blue eyes. I hug her and try to calm her down. After a while, she sniffs and says, "Perc, they are all using you. The demigods, all of them. I don't want you to get hurt. I can prove it to you that they will discard you as trash when they are done with you. I see the way Annabeth looks at you. It's only because she thinks you are the current big 'thing'. Just let me prove it to you and then you make your decision, Ok?" Her terms were fairly reasonable, so I agree and tell her that she has one week to prove the fact or we forget the entire event and move on. She then tells me her plan to spread rumors about me and test their trust in me. We both swear on the Styx, not to disrupt or reveal the plan until the week is over.
After we plan everything, I get ready for my date and Lexi tells me she is tired and is going to bed after dinner. I get ready while she has dinner and once she returns, I tuck her in, wish her Good Night and leave for my date.
