Spring had arrived early that year, and as soon as you stepped inside Persephone’s Garden, it showed. It was barely mid-March, but the shop was bursting with flowers and plants of all sorts. It was great for the sales, of course, but Jason kept wishing for some peace and quiet for once. The shop wasn’t big, far from it, but a metallic staircase in the shape of a spiral was partially hidden behind the counter. It led to a bedroom on the floor above the shop, where Jason spent most of his time.
It’s a warm morning when Jason sees him for the first time.
He had just finished arranging the bouquets that were to be delivered that day when the doorbell twinkled, and someone walked inside the shop. The boy seemed to be in his twenties, about Jason’s age. Dark curls fell on the side of his forehead, and he reached up with one hand to pull his hair back. His eyes met Jason’s, and he smiled. Jason’s heart skipped a beat. His eyes were way too intense for someone as young as him. They were a peculiar shade, somewhere between sea-green and blue. His grin seemed almost too wide for his face.
Oh, and he was completely covered in tattoos. His neck, his arms, his hands, every inch of skin Jason could see.
“Hi,” he said, turning to close the door behind him. The back of his shirt read ‘Lucky Mermaid Tattoo’ in bold red letters over a black background. Of course, Jason thought.
Persephone:Roses are red, violets are blue…sunflowers are yellow…tulips come in all kinds of colors…daffodils are also yellow. Apollo: Was that supposed to be a poem? Persephone: No, I just like flowers.
Pet peeve: when people forget? That annabeth is dyslexic just like percy is?? She literally always has been. In the lightning thief grover literally has to tell her and percy both what the sign on medusa’s shop says because neither one of them can decipher the cursive letters. Come on guys just because she’s the child of athena doesn’t mean she’ll correct every spelling error percy has- most likely shes too busy figuring out the word herself, not proofreading him.
