Annabeth wouldn’t think twice about cutting across the field, right next to the sign that says ‘Keep off the grass,’ and the only thing that stops her is Percy’s hand tugging her back. When she turns around, she sees Percy’s slightly hesitant look and pointed stare at the sign, and she’s groaning before he can even voice his concerns.
“Oh my gods, Percy, we cut through this field yesterday!”
“That was only because we were being chased by a monster!”
“You’ve blown up a building and stolen a police car before. You’ve been the subject of a nationwide manhunt, and you’re worried about defying a ‘keep off the grass’ sign?”
“It’s on a sign, Annabeth! You gotta respect the sign!”
Annabeth doesn’t understand her boyfriend sometimes, but she figures it isn’t worth it to spend the better half of an hour arguing about ‘it’s fucking grass, Jackson, nobody’s going to get hurt if you step on them’ in front of the field and having people stare at them. They take the long way around (the really, really long way around and ohmygods Percy we could’ve caught this screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron if we’d cut through the field but now we have to wait three hours for the next screening what the actual fuck)
Percy probably buys her a coffee afterwards for putting up with his antics. She smacks him in the shoulder when she sees ‘grass stepper’ written on the cup.
