1. Percy beats a bully for himself~AYLA~
Percy was the kind of guy who couldn't stand bullies. Neither could I, but unlike Percy I was able to prioritize. Even though Annabeth and Clarrise were being held up by Echidna and we were messing with the space-time-continuum, Percy still found it necessary to help a mortal.
We were having trouble finding our way around New York. It had changed in ways that made it feel older. We were running along an unfamiliar street when we'd noticed.
In an alley, Percy approached the biggest guy - I mean girl - who was shoving a fat finger at a limping little kid, who kind of looked my age, eleven, whose black hair was over his eyes. He tried to look strong and he was in a way confident, but he wasn't. He was staring at the ground, one foot on his skateboard, which looked old and very used.
Percy poked the nasty looking girl on the shoulder. She turned around, snarling.
'What da you want?'
'Did anybody tell you to not pick on kids? It's weak.'
That hadn't been the funniest or s
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
