Well, most you guys seem to the like the name Final Evolution, so I guess that's Percy's band's name!

Enjoy the chapter! XD

Annabeth's POV

It was the days of Percy's gig, and Thalia, Reyna, Piper, Hazel, Rachel and I were all piled into Piper's car.

Yes, there was one too many of us, but Piper insisted that it was fine.

We drove to the pub where Percy had said they were playing, and there were a few cars there already.

"They got the word out," Reyna muttered as Piper tried to find a park.

"Let's go," Piper cried as she turned off the engine. "I want to get a good table!"

It was an hour or so before lunch time, and the band had an hour break at 12. Piper had arranged with Jason for the band to sit with us for lunch, so we really needed a big table.

We hurried into the club, requesting a table for ten.

As soon as we were seated and had ordered drinks, people started cheering.

The band was coming on stage. First, an attractive blonde guy took his seat at the drums.

Piper was blushing furiously, a small smile on her lips.

"Is that Jason?" I asked, and she nodded.

Rachel gave her a high five. "Girl, nice score!"

Next out was a gloomy looking kid with a black bass in his hands. His shaggy black kept falling in his eyes, but he didn't seem to care.

Another blonde boy came out, grabbing his guitar. I saw Thalia staring at him, and elbowed her in the ribs, giving her a knowing look. "Oh, shut up Chase."

The girls already squealing at the gorgeous boys on stage, Percy game out from back stage with his guitar and stood at the mic.

"Hey everybody!" He called, and the cheering got louder. "We are Final Evolution, you ready to make some noise!?"

The screaming got so loud it was almost deafening, but the boys were grinning.

"The first song we'll be playing for you today is Come As You Are, by Nirvana!" The blonde guitarist said.

Thalia beamed. "I love this song!"

The dark-haired boy started plucking the strings on his bass for the first line of the main riff, then Jason started playing the beat.

Come as you are, as you were,As I want you to beAs a friend, as a friend, as an old enemy.Take your time, hurry upThe choice is yours, don't be late.Take a rest, as a friend, as an old memoriaMemoria [x3]

Come dowsed in mud, soaked in bleachAs I want you to beAs a trend, as a friend, as an old memoriaMemoria [x3]

The boys started jumping around, banging their heads, Jason tossing his drum stick in the air a few times.

And I swear that I don't have a gun

No I don't have a gun [x2]

Percy's fingers slid down the fret-board as he played the solo, Jason rocking the drums behind him.

Memoria [x4]

And I swear that I don't have a gunNo I don't have a gun [x5]

Memoria

The crowd cheered as the first song came to close.

"Whoa," Hazel said in absolute awe. "How do they not have a record deal?"

Reyna nodded in agreement. "They're amazing."

On stage, Percy cleared his throat and gestured for the crowd to quieten down. "Thank you everyone! This next song is A Little Faster, by There For Tomorrow."

Jason timed the start with his sticks, and the blonde guitarist started playing the main riff.

Then Percy started playing the chords, and Jason and the bassist joined in with the beat.

You keep calling it a crash and burnJust wait your turnYou might have time to speakThere barely was a lesson learned'Cause in return no favours back to me

I'm sure it tasted oh so sweetBut it was never good enough for meI bit the tongue behind my teethIt was never good enough for me

You said you always keep your wordShow me what you're afterI thought you promised me the worldTell me what you're afterGo on and take you way too far'Cause here we are, waiting once againYou said you always keep your wordShow me what you're afterJust a little faster

Are mine the only eyes that see, so steadilyThis cut and dry routineEven when you're by my sideI still need time to feel the company

I'm sure it tasted oh so sweetBut it was never good enough for meI bit the tongue behind my teethIt was never good enough for me

You said you always keep your wordShow me what you're afterI thought you promised me the worldTell me what you're afterGo on and take you way too far'Cause here we are, waiting once againYou said you always keep your wordShow me what you're afterJust a little faster

Just a little faster

Hold your breath nowThe bad blood's wearing thinFrom the pain that settles inWhen we learn too much too soonHold your breath nowThe bad blood's wearing thinFrom the pain that settles inWhen we learn too much too soon

Too soon

You said you always keep your wordShow me what you're afterI thought you promised me the worldTell me what you're afterGo on and take you way too far'Cause here we are, waiting once againYou said you always keep your wordShow me what you're after

It was never good enough for me (It was never good enough for me)Show me what you're afterJust a little faster

A/N: Go listen to that song, I think that is how Percy's voice would sound. Or he would sound like Luke from 5SOS

The boys put their instruments on the stands. "If you don't mind, we'll be having an hour break. See you guys later!" Jason said to the clapping crowd.

Without even a glance at his band-mates, Percy leapt off the stage and approached our table, sliding into the chair next to me. The girls may or may not have purposely put me and Piper on the edge.

"Hey Annabeth, glad you could make it." Percy beamed, a bit out of breath.

I smiled at him, "Wouldn't miss it, you guys are amazing."

The rest of the band came over, and Piper jumped to her feet, wrapping her arms around Jason, whose face lit up as he hugged her back.

The other three band members sat down, and Percy introduced us. "This is Nico, Luke, and you guys know Leo," The Hispanic boy flashed his impish smile and waved.

"Well, this is Thalia, Reyna, Rachel and Hazel."

Nico said hello to the girls. "Now, can we get food, I'm starving."

"You're always hungry, di Angelo." Luke rolled his eyes.

Thalia laughed, "I'm actually really hungry, too."

Percy held up his hand and called for a waiter.

A pretty girl with dark hair and brown eyes approached the table with a notepad and pen in hand. "Hey Percy, what can I get you guys?"

We all ordered burgers, expect for Piper, who was a vegetarian. She ordered a salad.

The waitress wrote down our orders. "Anything else?"

The guys ordered some drinks, but we already had ours from earlier.

"Alright then, I'll be back soon with your food," She said with a smile, walking to the kitchen.

Percy turned to me, as if he knew I was wondering how they knew each other. "That's Katie Gardner, she goes to my school."

The food didn't take long, and we all dug in to the delicious burgers. Percy and Nico practically inhaled their, I mean seriously, those two could eat.

We got into a huge, lengthy conversation. What schools did we go to, where were we from, what grade were we in, stuff like that.

I took a sip from my root beer float.

"So, Annabeth." Luke leaned across the table. "You're Percy's babysitter, huh?"

Percy groaned, rolling his eyes and running a hand through his already messy black hair.

Thalia smirked. "Actually, she's Percy's nanny."

"Oh my god!" Percy and I exclaimed in unison. "I'm not his nanny," at the same time he said, "She's not my babysitter."

My friends stifled their laughter, but Percy's made so such effort and burst out laughing. Leo had pretty much fallen out of his chair.

"Haha," Percy dead-panned. "You guys are hilarious."

Even though it was annoying, I still couldn't stop my lips from lifting at the corners.

Next to me, Reyna gave me a nudge. She raised her eyebrows as if to say, as if you don't like this guy!

I shoved her back, hoping my cheeks weren't as red as they felt.

TIME LAPSE

"Hey guys, we're back!" Jason said into his microphone, back at his drums. "The next we're going to play for you is Nothing Else Matters by Metallica." A/N: I can play this on guitar!

The crowd applauded as Percy started to play this intro.

The rest of the band joined in as he started to sing.

So close no matter how farCouldn't be much more from the heartForever trusting who we areAnd nothing else matters

Never opened myself this wayLife is ours, we live it our wayAll these words I don't just sayAnd nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in youEvery day for us something newOpen mind for a different viewAnd nothing else matters

Never cared for what they doNever cared for what they knowBut I know

So close no matter how farCouldn't be much more from the heartForever trusting who we areAnd nothing else matters

Never cared for what they doNever cared for what they knowBut I know

Luke played the interlude.

Never opened myself this wayLife is ours, we live it our wayAll these words I don't just sayAnd nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in youEvery day for us something newOpen mind for a different viewAnd nothing else matters

Never cared for what they sayNever cared for games they playNever cared for what they doNever cared for what they knowAnd I know

Percy started to play the awesome solo, and then Luke continued to play the intro over Percy's voice.

So close no matter how farCouldn't be much more from the heartForever trusting who we areNo nothing else matters

Luke's playing gradually faded to silence, and the applause was louder than ever.

Rachel tucked at my sleeve from the other side of the table. "Annabeth, Percy's so CUTE! How do you two find guys like that!" She said, addressing me and Piper.

Piper shrugged. "I spilled smoothie all over him."

"And I became a babysitter," I said, adding extra emphasis to 'babysitter', which only widened Thalia's snicker.

I caught her looking up on stage. "Got a bit of a crush too, Thals?"

With a shake her head, as if to snap herself out of her daze, she turned to look at me, that murderous look that usually meant she was trying to hide her embarrassment in her blue eyes.

Hazel laughed. "You guys act like you should be ashamed for liking them. Its adorable!"

Reyna agreed. "True that, especially you, Annabeth. Percy's hot!"

"Why do you guys keep picking on me," I fake pouted, blushing furiously.

"Aww, poor Annie!" The girls chorused.

I pointed at Piper. "You're one to talk about 'having a crush on a cute guy'!"

"Actually," Piper rebutted. "I'm dating a cute guy."

I rolled my eyes and crossed my eyes, turning away from my friends.

"Don't bother with the silent treatment, you know you won't last long." Rachel said, but I just turned further away, focusing on Final Evolution as they prepared for their next song.

Aww, Annabeth's embarrassed!

The rest of the gig will probably by in the next chapter.

I hope you enjoyed this, please R&R! XD
