Places We’re Not Allowed
for Soph <3 thanks for putting up with me tbh
It wouldn’t have been so bad if Piper hadn’t been there. Or even if it had been just Piper there. Or just Hazel. But the combination of Piper and Hazel noticing her bruises is perhaps the most mortifying experience Annabeth thinks she’s had.
She really shouldn’t have worn these shorts.
Hazel’s gasp is so loud that it makes Annabeth look up from her notepad. She follows Hazel’s abashed stare down to her own thighs, left mostly bare underneath the hem of her jean shorts.
“Annabeth, what happened?”
What happened is that Annabeth forgot to look in the mirror before she snuck out of Percy’s cabin this morning. The strict camp rules continue to be enforced when they visit even though they’ve been in college for a year and more often than not sleep over at each other’s dorms. What happened is that she has a purpling bruise on the inside of her left thigh and she’s going to absolutely murder her boyfriend.
