per adua ad astra

Drama / Romance

Prologue

Curly blond hair flew around a girl's face as she danced to the sound of her music. A elegant brown violin rested on her shoulder, a haunting song drawn from it. Her feet moved in their own special dance as she played in the isolated forest.

Annabeth's gray eyes, always cold and calculating, softened with joy. The music, her music, was the best thing she had in her life. A final note was drawn from her violin, echoing through the trees. She glanced at the sky when all the sound of her song faded. It was time for her to go, the setting sun told her. Unhappily, Annabeth sighed but began the mile walk to her home.

It as the last day of summer vacation and she was not looking forward to school. Even so, she had to go; her education was important if she wanted to get to her one of her dream colleges. And while she loved learning, it was the people she was stuck with eight hours a day for five days a week that she despised. People like Percy Jackson.


The last day of summer had come to soon. Yes, he did a lot. Like going to a few water parks with his friends, swimming in the ocean, going to Hawaii, and just hanging out with his friends in general. But there was still so much her could do! Sighing, he let his head drop, allowing his messy black hair to fall into his green-blue eyes.

School, school, school, school. All school for ten months. Percy tried to think of the bright side: seeing his friends more, the swim team, and two years left of high school. Though it would be a long ten months, Percy knew that he could survive. He always did. But his ADHD and dyslexia made it so that paying attention was unbearable difficult.

He had to try, at the very least. If only for his mother, he reminded himself, just so she was happy. And to stay on the swim team. But Percy was confident that he would be fine as long as he wasn't around Annabeth Chase.
