So here is Part 2 out of 3 of A Percabeth Proposal Threeshot. I hope you like it! Check out my other story called the Letter Writer, a Mortal AU with Percabeth. Don't let my pen name fool you! Trust me, I ship Percabeth and Pertemis.

Oh! I forgot. I don't own anything but the plot and stuff you don't recognise. Rick Riordan does.

We landed in Central Park, near Hyperion's Maple Tree. I smiled at the tree. It was decorated beautifully, with Christmas lights in an intricate pattern. I squinted a little. Is that an actual ornament?

"Seaweed Brain!" I chastised him. "It isn't Christmas!"

He looked at the tree, his adorable confused expression adorning his face. When he saw the ornament, his face turned bright red. "I swear I have no clue how that got there?" But I could tell he did know.

I raised my eyebrow. "Really?"

He groaned. "Come on Wise Girl! Let's just enjoy ourselves!"

I smirked, knowing that I won this round. "Fine. But you can't avoid answering that question. Need help setting up?"

He walked over to Blackjack and gave him a donut from the picnic basket. He murmured something to Blackjack, and then took the picnic basket from him. Blackjack left the two of us alone after Percy took the picnic basket. I walked over to him and took the blanket and the box of utensils and spread it out. We were silent, and Percy kept fiddling with this guitar charm on his camp necklace.

Finally, we finished laying everything out. Percy ended up breaking the silence. "So… how was your day?"

I gave a look. Such a Seaweed Brain question. "Terrible until now! After working on the temple designs, I had to go into the Aphrodite Cabin! They did my hair, makeup, and found the dress. It was agonizingly long."

He interrupted, "What does agonizing mean?"

I gave him an incredulous look. Was he serious right now? "It means…" I said, dragging it out. "It causes great physical and/or mental pain. In this case, mental pain."

"Ohhh…." he said, acting childish.

I whacked him upside down on the head. "Let's just eat."

I opened the containers. There was Venison pasta, some salad, blue cake and cookies, soda, and some water. My eyes lit up. Percy knew that Venison pasta was my favorite.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you!" I squealed as I hugged him. He just looked at me in horror.

"Did you actually just squeal?" he asked, incredulous. I shook my head in exasperation.

"Just pass the plate, Percy." He complied, then took one for himself. He took a spatula and started to put a heavy amount on his plate. When he caught me staring, he asked, "What? I'm hungry!"
"Too hungry to apply common manners? Like offering some pasta to me?" I asked, amused.

He had the decency to look ashamed. "Sorry? Want some?" He offered the spatula to me. He looked so innocent, I just couldn't get angry at him.

I smiled. "What else is there to eat?"
We ate in silence. It would be awkward to talk with a mouth full of good food. When we finished the pasta, we looked in the box of utensils, hoping to find a fork. We only found one. I didn't mind, we had fed each other many times. I cut a slice of cake.
"Happy birthday Annabeth." Percy whispered in his low voice, sending chills down my spine. I then registered what he said.

"You forgot, didn't you?" Percy confronted me, a small smile adorning his handsome features.

"I did," I murmured. "Thank you for remembering that when I didn't."
He grinned. "I know you are. I'm just awesome like that."

Normally, I would have told Percy to stop being thick headed. This time, it just didn't feel right. Also, there is the fact that I can't deny a true statement. "You are." I said softly.

I then grinned. I took some blue frosting from our slice of cake and smeared it across his cheeks, lips, and nose. Being the seaweed brain he is, licked the frosting off his lips. "Yummy."

I giggled. He playfully frowned. "You better run." My eyes widened, then I took off in a sprint. I forgot one thing though. High Heels aren't the best footwear for running away from your boyfriend. He easily caught up to me. I ended being tackled to the ground. I might have chastised him for doing that, as it could have ruined the dress, but we were too busy laughing. I rolled over to face him, to meet an amused and evil looking Percy. Uh oh. I knew what he was about to do.

"Percy, don't even think about it." I warned him, but it was too late. I was tickled till I nearly choked on my laughter. He stopped when I nearly did choke. He pulled me up and inspected me, making sure I wasn't hurt. I wasn't.
"Sorry." He sheepishly said. "Wanna eat the rest of the cake and the cookies?

I laughed. "Let's."
