First, I wasn't having such a good day today. It wasn't going well at all. I had writers block, I was in a bad mood, and I had a lot of things going wrong. So there are a few people I would like to thank super quick; natuhleegayle, for finding the song for this edition (which btw, is Your Gardian Angel by the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus) and for being so nice and helpful, Jaime, for writing the first questionable and kicking writers block in the a**. Also, HogwartsLove, for brightening my day immensely with her sweet, thoughtful comments that always make me smile. Also, let us continue to pray for Aria, who is still in a coma, I believe. No one tells me anything, so I might be wrong. But still, please continue to pray. And now, to PART 13!!!!! FinalllYYYYYYY!!!! Yay for natuhleegayel, Jaime, and HL!!! ^ (Me: Without whom, I wouldve died) I've been waiting!!! Aria!! I MISS YOU!!!! 4. Luke’s POV
“I.....I,” she stuttered, not quite sure what to say. “I’ve got to go!” she finally replied with one last glance at me before leaving. I watched her run away from me, even though it hurt. To be honest, it hurt like hell. How could I have been stupid enough to think that a girl like her would actually love me? It just wouldn’t work. She probably loved Percy or Devin or even that pathetic excuse for a stayr, Grover. Anyone but me. I hate to just go on and on on my own personal pity party, being mad and depressed because I know Violet doesn't love me, but I just, I can't be without her. When I see her smile- either in my head, or right infront of me- tears begin to form in my eyes. I've never loved anyone like this. I've never loved anyone ever. I.... Aww! Luke! I do love you! Well....we'll see....I don't exactly know how to feel... I just hate you. Please, do me a favor, if you wuv me so freaking much: LEAVE ME ALONE 5. ...I stared blankly at the place where she had just stood. I wasn't in shock, no. I was just pretending she was still here with me, smiling up at me with her radiant beam, her lovely, gorgeous eyes staring up into mine. After a while, I sit down, watching the sea, watching the water rise and fall, watching it crash against rocks, and gleam with the last light of day, sat onto the water by the setting sun. I thought of my Princess, wondering if she had given me another thought, and hoping she hadn't, if all it was going to do was make her lovely eyes fill with tears. I thought instead, of her smiling at me. "Luke?" asked a voice behind me. I turn around abruptly, my hand over my heart. Oh, Luke, you're killing me here! Why do you doubt me!? You should know that I love you! I really dont know. I mean, it's nice that he has such a high opinion of me, but I really don't know how to feel. Eww...Sorry, Luke. I love somebody. BUT IT AIN'T YOU!!! 6. "Luke," says Percy, walking slowly towards me, Grover not far behind, "Whatcha doing here?" he asks, a cautious look on his face. I force the best, most friendly smile I can muster on my face. "Hey, Perce! Grover! Oh, nothing, just thought I'd watch the sunset. Ive heard it's beautfiul, watching the sun set on the water, but I see now that 'beautiful' doesn't do it justice," I say, trying my best to smile serenely, not entirely sure what- or who- I'm talk in about. But Percy just nods back and smiles. "Do you mind if we join you?" Grover asks tentatively. I want to say no, but that would make them ask why and why not, and wants wrong, and honestly, that's too many questions for me to handle right now. So I just nod and tap the spots next to me. Aww Luke. Just stay strong! You know I love you! I seriously don't know.... Finally, somebody (Percy/Grover) interesting!!! 7. "Luke......" Percy starts off quietly, and I know immeditely what he's trying to talk about. I say, trying not to let my eyes fill with tears again, or sound sad, "Yeah, Percy?" He looks like he's fighting a war with himself, debating whether or not he should ask. I pray the side that doesn't holds on tight for the win. But I don't get my wish. "Uhm....What's going on with you and Violet?" he asks, looking scared, just a little. I can see it in his eyes, which look so much like the sea, I'm surprised nobody figured out who his dad was the second they saw him, he doesn't want me to yell, or be mad. He's genuinely curious. I sigh. "Honestly Percy, I'm not reall sure at this point. But I don't want to bother you with that now," I say, but now that he's asked, he's not backing down. Oh, Luke.....Say strong stay strong....you know how I feel! I'm so confused....he's so...but I....GRRRR Yeah, Luke, why don't you just shut it so Percy can talk instead? 8. "Percy, the thing is...." I start, turning to him, trying to think of how best to explain the situation to him without reveling that I love her, "I feel...a certain, strong feeling for Violet, and I'm not exactly sure if she feels the same way about me. But the thing is, I want her to be happy, but she's all I can think about," I say in a rush of mindless words. I've said to much. He knows, its written across his face. He sounds half strangled when he tries to speak next. "Really? Why don't you just ask her?" I laugh without thinking. "Sorry, Perce," I say to the almost hurt expression on his face, "but that's easier said then done." he nods. Then it hits me. 'Thats easier said then done.' Who else said that? Oh my- Luke! What are you thinking?!? I'm sorry, I'm confused....and still torn... I'm sorry, I wasnt listening, I was too busy ignoring this annoying dude. 9. Aphrodite. Aphrodite said that. And guess what? Aphrodite just HAPPENS to be the goddess of love. Which means I know who I'm gonna talk to next...."You know what Percy, I'd love to stay and chat, but I need to talk to someone," I say, before getting up and waving to him and Grover, but not before Grover calls after me. "Luke. Just be careful," he says. Its like he read my mind, "I know what you're trying to do. Please be careful." I nod hastily and rush off. What is he trying to do? If he's....he wouldn't. He knows I.... ^ I could care less what the idiot does. ^ You are really mean. You dont have to love him, just give him a chance!! 10. I barely have time to think as I run throughout the camp. I need to get their and fast. Before dinner. People would be suspicious, and I don't need suspicious people asking me questions I could really care less to answer. I run into the Big House. I rush up the steps, past the Oracle' room, and up to the right. I push gently on the wall. The door, which you'd never know was there unless someone told you, swung open with a creek. I stepped inside the room, dark, unless you count the hundred something candles lighting the room. There are twelve large shrines- one for each Olympian god- or goddess. I rush over to the light pink and blue one decorated with ribbons and marble doves. I kneel before it and say, "O goddess, accept my offering," as I take a golden chain out from under my shirt, remove it from my neck, and lay it on the shrine. Aphrodite likes gold the most. What the freak is this idiot doing?!? Is he....NO LUKE! I love you! Don't!! ^ Just give it a minute..he might surprise you.... 11. Suddenly, a bright, golden light appears in front of me. I shield me eyes quickly. When the light dies, I quickly stand and bow in the presence of an extremely gorgeous woman, whose hair, skin, and eye color is undetermind, yet godly immaculate. I still think Violet-her daughter- is still more radiant and lovely then Aphrodite, but I don't dare tell her this. She smiles when she sees me. "Luke Castellan," she says expectantly, "Yes, your father had a nice little chat with me about you and my daughter Violet." "Lady Aphrodite," I say sincerely, and she waves her hands. "No, no, no. Just Aphrodite for you, boy!" she with a beam. Oh my god.....even my mom wants me to be with him.... ^ What does she know!? ^^ SHE'S THE LOVE GODDESS! I'm personally gonna take her word for it... 12. "What do you need, Luke Castellan?" she asks inquiringly. "I need to know...how do you prove you're in love? Just to get the message across that you're willing to die for this person? Just so they know, that your arms are always open...ready to welcome them....comfort them...." Aphrodite gives me a pitying look, which makes me strangely uncomfortable- this is her daughter I'm talk about anyway- and shakes her head, never taking her eyes off of me. "Oh, no, Luke Castellan. You have it bad. The way you can really be su-" "I'm sure. I'm positive. I love her," I say, before wincing and saying, "My apologies." Aphrodite gives another wave of the hand like it's no big deal. I will say this fir Aphrodite- she's definitely more tolerant and patient with demigods and mortals. If this were Lord Zues for instance, I would be fried to death within an inch of my life. If this were Athena, I would have to deal with an ice cold stare of anger. Violet is definitely a Daugter of Aphrodite.... Aww.....he's just so sweet!! ^ How? I think he tries too hard. It's part of the reason I hate him. I think that's nice of him to say, but I'd much rather be Athena's daughter. No! Wait! I take that back...Devin... 13. "As yourself Luke; would you never let her fall? Will you stand with her through everything? Will you save her if the only price to pay is you own life? Will you search through endless rain, sleet, snow, thunder, lightening, anything, just to find her? Are you okay with her being with someone else if they make her happy? Would you do anything just to see her smile? Would you take the blame for her if she does something to get her in trouble? If you answer yes to more then half of these questions, Luke, you can be sure, that you love Violet," she says with a wink. "I already know I love her. What I was asking was how do I let her know that? Without scaring her off or overwhelming her? And how do I know if she feels the same?" Aphrodite sighs and blows some stray hair out of her eyes. "Oh my..youre serious? Most people who ask me questions like this are talking about little crushes...but you. I can sense it; this is different. Well, that first question is hard. It depends in the girl. I still can't help you there, even though it is my daughter. The first time I talked to her face to face was a month ago!" she cries, but obviously trying to stay calm, "But as for your second question, that's an easy one. The way you can tell if she loves you, is if she never stops smiling once she sees you," says Aphrodite with a smirk. "I'm sorry. Zues is ticked about something. I must go. Good luck, Luke Castellan." She snaps her fingers, and is gone. Oh my gods....Luke if you looked at me right now, I'm beaming!! I'm almost crying here....I don't know what to do.... I'm frowning. I hate you, Luke Castellan. 14. Hey guys! I hoped you liked it! I'd give you a sneak peak, but my brain is too fried!!! I'm sorry, but this is the best I can do right now!!
