@incredible-dontknowwhattoput winner of Percy Jackson Trivia requested a percabeth werewolf AU!
Percy felt anxious as he sat next to Annabeth in the bed of his truck. They were at a look out point to watch the sun set. It was a terrible idea, he knew that. So close to a full moon and they are still out.
Annabeth looked over at him and took his hand, giving it a light squeeze for comfort. She knew what he was thinking because she was thinking the same thing. It was getting dark way too quickly and it was their only weekend that they could get away before she left to go on a week long college visit.
“So, you want to head back?” Percy asked as he watched the sky slowly change from blue to orange.
“No. I want to stay.” She replied. “And the sunset is just about to start.”
“I know.” She sighed. “I just want to enjoy being with you before I leave for a week.”
Percy leaned over and kissed her cheek, knowing that they both needed the support for tonight.
They watched the sun set and the sky turn pink-orange before turning black. Annabeth was leaning on him, not wanting to move from her position. She was so relaxed.
“Annabeth, I think we should go.” Percy said. “Away from here.”
“It’s fine here.” Annabeth told him. “And I don’t want to leave just yet.”
“Let’s just stay, okay? I promise it’s fine.” She replied, looking up at him. Her gray eyes staring deep into his green ones.
“You know that’s not true.” He replied. “I really should be going before the moon becomes more visible.”
Annabeth sat up and looked at him. Her gray eyes becoming dull as she knew that Percy was right. He needed to leave before things got worse. She moved over and kissed him.
“Be safe.” He whispered.
“I’m more worried about you.” She smiled weakly.
“I’ll be fine.” He promised.
She kissed him one last time before he got into the car. It broke her heart that she couldn’t sleep over on her last night with him. That’s what she wanted to do the most; cuddle up next to her boyfriend and pass out in his arms.
She looked out to see the near by town, lit up. Taking one last look, she headed to the forest, knowing that she wouldn’t have control any minute.
It was the stupid curse that was placed on her family generations ago. If she could find her ancestor that placed this curse on her family, she would try to make sure that didn’t happen.
Her gut felt like someone stabbed it. She doubled over, knowing she had to let it happen and try not to resist it. The only thing she hoped was that she wouldn’t kill anyone tonight.
Percy drove back to his house, getting farther and farther away from Annabeth. He wished he could be there with her, but she told him over and over again that she wasn’t in control. He needed to be far away so she didn’t accidentally kill him.
It wasn’t that he was turned off from knowing that she was a werewolf, he thought it was kind of cool. What bothered him was that once a month, he couldn’t be near her.
But he just had to find her tomorrow morning before she went off to Harvard for the week, shadowing a student for a couple of days before heading to Princeton to do the same thing.
He pulled up into the driveway and cut the engine. It was pitch black out and he knew Annabeth was out in the woods somewhere. He just wanted to make sure that she was okay.
He got out of the car and heard a wolf howl in the distance. People in his town wouldn’t think much of it. But he secretly knew that was her, sending out a warning before going out of a hunt. At least that’s what he thinks.
“Please don’t kill anyone this time.” Percy whispered before heading inside, safe like she would want.
When Percy woke up, he looked at his phone and saw that he missed ten calls from Annabeth and twenty texts from her to call her back. He cursed as he called her back,
“Annabeth, what’s going on?” He asked.
“P-Percy I killed someone.” She sobbed. “I killed someone again. Oh gods!”
“Where are you?” He asked, sitting up, feeling more alert now. “Are you okay?”
“I’m by the look out point. Please come get me.” She hung up.
Percy jumped out of bed and quickly got dressed. It wasn’t the first time that she killed someone and woke up next to some dismantled body part. It was confusing for her since she had no idea what happened. When she was a werewolf, she had no idea what happened.
He got into his truck and booked it up to the look out point. When he got there, he saw her standing at the edge of the woods, her hair had blood in it and her face was red from tears.
Getting out of his truck, he went over to her. His heart broke as he saw her like this. But he knew she couldn’t help it.
He brought her into a tight hug, not caring about the blood. “It’s okay. You couldn’t help it. It’s not your fault.”
“P-Percy, I just killed an innocent person.” She sobbed into his shoulder. “I’m a monster. A complete monster.”
“You’re not a monster.” He whispered. “I promise you’re not a monster. Let’s bury the body and have a funeral for them. Then we can clean you up.”
She nodded, her blonde hair moving as she tried to calm herself down. It only calmed her down a bit that it wasn’t Percy, at least not this time.
