Chapter 5

Yo guys!

We got over fifty reviews, over half-way to a hundred!

Please review guys!

I started playing the main riff, and after one line, Jason joined in with the beat and Luke started playing the chords.

I took a walk around the worldTo ease my troubled mindI left my body lying somewhereIn the sands of timeBut I watched the world floatTo the dark side of the moon

I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah

I watched the world float

To the dark side of the moonAfter all I knew it had to beSomething to do with youI really don't mind what happens now and thenAs long as you'll be my friend at the end

If I go crazy then will you stillCall me SupermanIf I'm alive and well, will you beThere a-holding my handI'll keep you by my sideWith my superhuman mightKryptonite

You called me strong, you called me weak,But still your secrets I will keepYou took for granted all the timesI never let you downYou stumbled in and bumped your head,If not for me then you'd be deadI picked you up and put you back on solid ground

If I go crazy then will you stillCall me SupermanIf I'm alive and well,Will you be there a-holding my handI'll keep you by my sideWith my superhuman mightKryptonite

Luke played the solo, then I started playing the main riff again very softly.

If I go crazy then will you stillCall me SupermanIf I'm alive and well, will you be thereHolding my handI'll keep you by my sideWith my superhuman mightKryptoniteYeah!

If I go crazy then will you stillCall me SupermanIf I'm alive and well,Will you be there a-holding my handI'll keep you by my sideWith my superhuman mightKryptonite

Oh, whoa, whoaOh, whoa, whoaOh, whoa, whoa

There was a roar from the crowd as the song came to an end. Jason smiled to the crowd, but I saw that his eyes were on Piper.

"Nice goin' dude," I winked discreetly at him.

"Shut up, Jackson. Play the next song."

I smirked at turned back to the microphone. "Our next song is Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day."

Luke started playing the first chords, Leo putting his guitar on distortion.

I walk a lonely roadThe only one that I have ever known

Jason and Nico played the beat and I played the riff.

Don't know where it goesBut it's home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty streetOn the Boulevard of Broken DreamsWhere the city sleepsAnd I'm the only one and I walk alone

I walk aloneI walk aloneI walk aloneI walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside meMy shallow heart's the only thing that's beatingSometimes I wish someone out there will find me'Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, aaah-ah,Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah

I'm walking down the lineThat divides me somewhere in my mindOn the border lineOf the edge and where I walk alone

Read between the linesWhat's messed up and everything's alrightCheck my vital signsTo know I'm still alive and I walk alone

I walk aloneI walk aloneI walk aloneI walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside meMy shallow heart's the only thing that's beatingSometimes I wish someone out there will find me'Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, aaah-ahAh-ah, ah-ah

I walk aloneI walk a...

I played the solo, and went back to the starting chords.

I walk this empty streetOn the Boulevard of Broken DreamsWhere the city sleepsAnd I'm the only one and I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside meMy shallow heart's the only thing that's beatingSometimes I wish someone out there will find me'Til then I walk alone...

Luke and I played played the last riff together, Nico backing us up with his bass.

The crowd cheered, and someone even whistled.

My band-members shared grins as we went backstage.

"Guys!" Leo beamed. "That was AWESOME!" He gave us all high-fives.

After packing all our instruments (which was a struggle with Jason's massive drum set and all of Leo's electronics) into our van, aka Luke's old Volkswagen,we met up with the girls again in the carpark.

They were waiting by an awesome looking Lexus.

"You guys have great taste in music!" Thalia declared.

"She really loves Green Day," Annabeth clarified.

Jason grinned. "So does Nico. It's kinda annoying."

"Hey!"

Piper walked over and gave Jason a hug, though I caught her giving him a quick kiss on the cheek. "We have to go, Dad wanted me back by 3."

"You guys are amazing, good job." Reyna said, getting in shotgun.

"Yeah, we definitely have to meet up again sometime," Rachel agreed with a smile.

The girls piled into the Lexus, Piper getting in the driver's seat.

"See ya, Percy," Annabeth said before she closed the door, and I waved.

As their car drove away, I elbowed Jason in the ribs. "Dude! She totally kissed you!"

TIME LAPSE

The next day Annabeth was over to babysit the kids.

Mom and Paul had left ages ago, off to have lunch for their four month anniversary of being a couple, and the kids were tired with their toys, which was beyond strange.

We were all sitting on the couch, bored out of our minds with nothing to do.

"Got any movies?" Annabeth suggested.

I sighed. "Not any that they haven't seen a bajillion times. I swear, if I have to watch Frozen one more time-"

Annabeth and the kids groaned. I threw my head back against the coach and stared at the ceiling.

"We could go to the park?" I said.

Sienna cheered. "YES! Swings!"

She loved swings.

"Great idea, Perce," Annabeth said. She got off the couch and grabbed her shoulder-bag.

Tyler, Sienna and I bolted to our rooms. I slipped on a zip-up hoodie and grabbed my skateboard.

Sienna had put on her sneakers and Tyler had a basketball.

"Let's go!" Tyler said excitedly, running to door so fast he almost couldn't stop.

We went in the elevator to the lobby and then Annabeth held the kids' hands as we crossed the street.

Ty and Sienna knew the way to park like they knew the back of their hand, so I wasn't too worried when they ran a bit ahead. As long as I could see them, they were good. They knew to wait before crossing the road.

Annabeth walked beside me as I rolled along on my skateboard.

"Is it okay for them to be that far ahead of us?" She asked, concerned.

I shrugged, hands in my pockets. "They'll be fine, as long as they don't fall over."

Annabeth raised an eyebrow at me. "You really are quite irresponsible."

"I get that a lot," I smirked, and Annabeth rolled her eyes. "I'm not that bad! I do my homework and stuff."

"So doing homework makes you responsible?" Annabeth said.

I huffed. "Yes, it does. And I clean my room too, sometimes."

She laughed, and it was pretty much the best sounds I'd ever heard.

From where I was, I could her face without her noticing, and I hadn't realised how pretty she actually was. Like, I knew was cute, but she more than that.

Her curly blonde hair was in a ponytail, and she was wearing rolled-up dark skinny jeans, black Converse shoes and a light grey sweater with the sleeves pushed up to her elbows. Her grey eyes sparkled, and her skin was flawless, without a touch of make-up.

I was snapped back to reality when Annabeth asked me a question.

"Shouldn't you start to slow down now?"

I hadn't been paying attention, and had completely missed the intersection coming up.

"Crap!" I exclaimed. I jumped off my board and it continued to roll down the hill towards my brother and sister. "Sienna! Can you get that for me?"

She looked up and stopped the runaway skateboard just before it rolled under a car.

I shared a look with Annabeth. "Whoops."

She laughed, and we ran down the hill.

The park was just across the road, and as soon as we got there, Sienna was on the swing.

Annabeth was stuck with pushing her, since she couldn't do it herself yet. Ty and I went to the basketball court.

Tyler tried shooting his ball, but the hoops were a bit high for him.

"Higher Annabeth," I could hear Sienna saying, squealing in delight as she swung back and forth.

Tyler was dribbling the ball around me, despite the fact the I was rolling around on my skateboard.

"Dude, you're going to make me crash."

"Hey, Percy, can we play two-on-two?"

I looked over at Sienna and Annabeth. Annabeth already looked done with pushing Sienna on the swing.

"Sienna!" I called. "Wanna play basketball? You can be on my team!"

My little sister beamed and leapt off the still moving swing. She and Annabeth made her way over to us, and Tyler passed me the ball.

"Alright guys, basic rules, but no contact."

Annabeth nodded, since that rule really only applied to the two of us.

It was Annabeth and I in the jump, and Ty threw the ball into the air. Even though I towered over Annabeth, I had to rise on my toes to keep the ball. Damn, that girl could jump!

I rolled the ball to Sienna, who picked it up and ran for the goals, dribbling the ball.

Tyler knocked the ball out of her hands, and Annabeth grabbed it and shot for a three. It would've made it, but I jumped up and snatched the ball from the air.

Passing it back to Sienna. I lifted her above my head, and Sienna made a dunk.

"Whooo!" We cheered, me carrying my sister on my shoulder. "We rule!"

Annabeth rolled her eyes, but she had a smile on her face. "Whatever, it's our ball."

She glanced at Tyler, standing at the boundary line. She passed to Ty, and the little guy ran for all he was worth.

Leaving the defence to Sienna, I tried to block Annabeth from the goals. If I could keep her behind me, I would definitely get the rebound.

With amazing speed, Annabeth dodged around me as Tyler made the shot.

The balled bounced of the backboard, but Annabeth was there. She grabbed the ball and slammed it through the hoop.

"Ooohhh! Allie-oop! Get burned Percy!"

She and Tyler high-fived.

The game went on like that, until we eventually agreed to call it a draw.

The kids went to play on the play-ground, but Annabeth and I stayed on the courts.

She was shooting hoops, and I was riding my skateboard, trying to master the kickflip.

"You're not bad," Annabeth remarked.

I turned around the basketball pole. "Why thank-you."

She shrugged.

"You skate?"

She shook her head and laughed. "God no!"

I jumped off and kicked the back, tipping the nose into my hand. "Wanna try, I can teach you."

"No, I'll probably kill myself," Was she blushing?

I held the board out to her. "I won't let go, promise."

Yeah, she was definitely blushing.

Hesitantly, Annabeth took the board and set it on the ground. She stepped onto it, and I held her shoulders to keep her steady.

"Good, now push off with your foot."

She did as I said and I walked beside her as she rolled around the court.

Annabeth was doing great... until I let go.

"Awesome, Annab-" I started to say, but without me to hold her up, she fell back and the skateboard flew out from under her feet.

I tried to catch her, but she crashed to the ground, landing hard on her butt.

I covered my mouth, barely able to contain my laugh.

"I. Hate. You." She said, but she was laughing to.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! PERCABETH!

Percy would be the BEST big bro

Please R&R! XD
