my otp is better than yours

anonymous asked:

Can I please request some percabeth? I followed your old account and I would love to see you write for my otp if you have time... sorry to bother you! ^///^

You’re not a bother so don’t apologize! Besides, I’ve been looking for a reason to write some percabeth and what’s better than a summer camp au?

“You’ve got to be kidding me. They let him be a cabin leader? That’s like letting a child roam free in a gun shop.”

Annabeth looked over to where Thalia had her eyes. Sure enough, a hoard of little children were surrounding their next victim. Percy Jackson.

She’d met him during her camp years but she would have never thought that he would come back as a leader. Responsibility wasn’t one of his strengths that was for sure. Still, the kids seemed to love him.

“Percy, can you teach me how to swim? My older brother said you’re the best swimmer around.”

Percy ran a hand through his tangled hair. “He said that, huh? Well, he wasn’t wrong. You’re looking at the best swimmer this camp has ever seen, little lady.”

The little girl’s face lit up in awe and the other children let out noises of praise. He was enjoying every minute of this.

Despite herself, Annabeth couldn’t help but laugh at the sight. He really was good with kids because deep down he was still a kid himself. He hasn’t changed one bit since their camp days.

Hearing her laughter, Percy looked her way.

“Shit.”

Now it was Thalia’s turn to laugh as Annabeth tried to disappear in her clipboard.

“He’s coming this way.”

“Maybe if we pretend he’s not there he’ll go away.”

Percy squinted his eyes to get a better look.

“Annabeth?”

Oh no.

Slowly, she turned her head. He was so close she could practically smell the salt water on his skin. He may not have changed mentally but puberty sure hit him hard. Some might even say he was better looking than Luke.

“Hey, seaweed brain. Long time no see.”

You know what, I think I’m going to make this a drabble series since I actually like my writing this time. I’ll put a link to part two on here once it’s up.
