ok but hear me out. the amount of strength percy’s arms have is enormous considering the fact that he could hold both HIS and ANNABETH’S weight with ONE HAND.,….,,, what I mean with this is that percy is ripped as fuck
Annabeth’s voice caught on the word friend. Percy was a lot more than that. Even boyfriend really didn’t cover it. They’d been through so much together, at this point Percy was part of her–a sometimes annoying part, sure, but definitely a part she could not live without.
Percy couldn’t help smiling. “Reyna, you’re too modest. Flying halfway across the world by yourself to answer Annabeth’s plea, because you knew it was our best chance for peace? That’s pretty freaking heroic.”
Reyna shrugged. “Says the demigod who fell into Tartarus and found his way back.”
“He had help,” Annabeth said.
“Oh, obviously,” Reyna said. “Without you, I doubt Percy could find his way out of a paper bag.”
“True,” Annabeth agreed.
“Hey!” Percy complained.
The others started laughing, but Percy didn’t mind. It felt good to see them smile.
